Manchester City vs Bournemouth

Football icon Manchester City To Score In Both Halves
Arrow down

City are the most dominant team in the league. Top scorers last season along with having the meanest defence. When they get motoring, especially at home, they’re borderline unstoppable.

They scored an average of 2.61 goals per game at The Etihad in last seasons title win. Winning 79% of their games here.

They averaged an xG of 2.6 across the 38 matches which is just insane, that was 2.67 at home. Those are the best numbers you’ll see in an elite league.

Even in a tougher game (West Ham away) this selection still landed as Erling Haaland made his mark either side of half time.

City are just 1.07 to win today with everyone expecting a pummelling. Bournemouth are mainly peoples favourites for relegation and I think based on the quality in their squad, that’s completely understandable.

They produced a brilliant win on opening day against Aston Villa but I think they’re going to come crashing back down to earth here.

With City’s dominance, corners normally come hand in hand. They were insane for corners last season. Taking an average of 8.95 in their home matches.

I think we could even see that increase this season, thanks to the signing of Haaland. We saw last week that they’re going to look to play to his strengths where possible which means more balls in to the box, which is normally a great situation for even more corners.

Grealish was hugging the touch line and looking to check back and put the ball in to the big Norwegian whenever possible.

City already lend themselves to getting a lot of corners with their very wide players and sharp passing high up the pitch. 6 shouldn’t be an issue at all for us here.

Arsenal vs Leicester

Arsenal have scored twice in 4 of the last 5 meetings between these two sides, including two 2-0 victories last season.
Arsenal ended the 2021-22 season with three consecutive home wins against Manchester United, Leeds United and Everton – albeit without a single clean sheet from any of those matches.
It has been over 50 years since the Gunners claimed back-to-back wins with back-to-back clean sheets at the start of a top-flight season.

Looking at Arsenal’s xGF last season, they recorded a massive 2.25 in home games. Leicester’s xGA on the road is also pretty high at 1.9, so I’d expect some goals for the home side.
This will be helped by the signing of Gabriel Jesus in the summer. In his first match at the Emirates, he bagged a hat-trick in their preseason game vs Sevilla.
Leicester have kept just one clean sheet in their previous 26 away Premier League games – a 2-0 win against relegated Burnley. This record spans to February 2021 when they managed a 0-0 draw at the Molineux.

Leicester also bottled a 2-0 lead at home vs Brentford to draw 2-2 in their opening game of the season.

At the other end, Jamie Vardy will be a big threat on the counter. The Leicester striker has scored more Premier League goals against Arsenal than he has against any other side.

The Foxes averaged 3.18 goals per game last season, the 3rd most in the Premier League behind only Man City and Leeds. That increases to 3.37 for away games. Arsenal themselves still managed an average of 2.87.

Arteta’s project has seen the resurgence of a familiar style for Arsenal – possession and intricate passing. They will get the majority of the ball against Leicester in the attacking third, whilst Leicester will be penned back and spring on the counter – with Jamie Vardy as the long ball option.

Fluidity of the full backs will result in more corners for Arsenal. Martinelli comes inside towards a more central Jesus, whilst Xhaka and Zinchenko constantly interchange, resulting in spaces on the left wing to run into. Down the right, Odegaard’s intricacy and Saka’s dribbling allows space for an overlap for Ben White or Tomiyasu if he is fit.

Last season, Arsenal ranked 5th in the league for corners, amassing 208 corners. That’s 5.47 corners per game. Leicester on the other hand were 11th.

Last week, Arsenal managed 5 corners against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

In Leicester’s first run-out of the season, Brentford amassed 6 corners at the King Power Stadium.

Not to mention, Arsenal’s goal threat from corners is one of the best in the league, scoring 10 goals directly from a corner routine in 2021/22 including in both fixtures against Leicester. They will look to the corner as a passage to goal once again, as seen by Martinelli’s goal last week.

Brentford vs Manchester United

After the horror show of last week, Erik Ten Haag’s side head to London to take on Brentford.

Thomas Frank’s team came from 2-0 down in their opener to salvage a draw against Leicester; displaying more of that courage and grit that saw them perform so well last season.

Of course, both sides saw 3 or more goals in their season openers and I’m expecting similar entertainment today.

I think both teams find the net here. United are brutal defensively. They looked all at see against Brighton; I actually saw a video that showed there was as many as 7 individual errors from 7 different players in the lead up to Brighton’s opener.

Dalot gave the ball away constantly, Shaw was being dragged in field and regardless of who you play at centre half, they’ve got no protection from Fred and McTominay, the latter of which was excruciating to watch last week.

Lisandro Martinez made his debut too, he was booked and also got away with a stone wall penalty. I think he’s going to struggle today, especially with the presence of Ivan Toney; who’ll no doubt be targeting the Argentinian.

United of course have the capability to score goals, they actually created an xG of above 2 last week and were undone by Marcus Rashford’s dreadful finishing.

Football icon 1+ Card Each Team

Always fancy cards in United games. All situations seem to favour them, largely because of the individuals in the side.

You’ve got absolute loose cannons like McTominay (that tackle last week is a perfect example), there’s also Maguire, Fred and seemingly Martinez after last week.

Then you’ve got the petulant players, the ones who can’t handle things not going their way – Bruno, Ronaldo etc. They’re always good for a kick out when frustrated.

You’ve also got what this does for opposition teams. There’s always controversy, scuffles and arguments with United on the pitch, again regulalry featuring those players named above.

They’re a side who will get under the skin of opposition players and likely find themselves receiving some firm challenges.

United are vulnerable right now and I think Brentford will go at them from the off. They’ll press hard and tackle harder.

This was all particularly true last season when United played away from home. On the road last season they picked up an ever had of 2.42 cards, compared to 1.74 at home.

Also, at Old Trafford, teams only picked up an average of 0.95 bookings per match, whereas on the road that jumped to 1.68.

That mean the average number of cards in a game at home for United went up from 2.68 to 4.11 when playing away.

Brentford players were in the book an average of 1.76 times per game last season and they received at least 1 booking in 76% of their matches.
