Matchday 08’s biggest game ended in a 1-1 draw but all the talk afterwards, was about the physical demands being put on the Premier Leagues biggest clubs during this condensed season.
Recent meetings between Manchester City & Liverpool have been 90 minutes of enthralling, high energy, end to end football. This game kicked off that way but the intensity faded. After 70 minutes both sides looked exhausted after a run of 7 games in 21 days & they shut up shop rather than risk losing.
It doesn’t get any easier with Matchday 09 kicking off a run of 9 games in 28 days for the seven clubs in Europe.
Harry Kane scored his 150th Premier League as he grabbed a late winner in Tottenham Hotspur’s 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion. The England international has hit this milestone in just 218 appearances & at 27, who wouldn’t fancy him surpassing Alan Shearer’s record of 260 goals by the time he retires?
Here are the 2020-21 Premier League Matchday 09 Betting Lines.
PREMIER LEAGUE MATCHDAY 09 BETTING LINES
ODDS & ENDS
- League leaders Leicester look good value at +315 away to Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp is without his first choice back four as Joe Gomez & Andrew Robertson join Virgil van Dijk & Trent Alexander-Arnold on the injury list.
- I like Aston Villa to win +130. They showed in Matchday 08 they can be patient & break down defensively minded sides when they pumped Arsenal 3-0.
- Tottenham +310 at home to Manchester City is excellent value. Pep Guardiola’s side are yet to his the free scoring highs of previous seasons & José Mourinho is starting to get the best out of his side.
- Wolverhampton Wanderers +130 look solid against a Southampton side who are a lot less threatening in the final third without Danny Ings leading the line.
