In a new episode of the Goal Post, Dana and Justin will preview the Premier League. Dana and Justin will preview next matches: Manchester United vs Manchester City, Arsenal vs West Ham United and Liverpool vs Bournemouth
Manchester United Vs. Manchester City
Old Trafford will be full when local rivals Manchester United and Manchester City face each other in Match 29. Citizens, who won the Carabao Cup over the weekend, are trying to melt the advantage of Liverpool in the Premier League standings, and we positively assess that we will adhere to their attacking style of play against Manchester United. Gabriel Jesus, who was in great shape recently, is likely to maintain his place in the starting XI.
The changes of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is aimed at preserving their hopes in the Champions League, which means that there is a lively competition in the “Dream Theater” on the horizon. Be that as it may, the away winnings should be seen as Man Utd still without key striker Marcus Rashford, who was seriously injured. In his absence, the person watching the home team will be January to sign Bruno Fernandes, who has already begun to pay off.
Arsenal Vs. West Ham United
The only unbeaten Premier League side in 2020, Arsenal’s win last round, marked their first back-to-back league successes since the opening two games of the season. That win over Everton also saw both teams score in an Arsenal game for the 18th time this Premier League season, while 14 matches have now seen the ‘Gunners’ concede first. Twenty-three of Arsenal’s 37 points have come at home, although just two of their six wins were achieved with a -1 handicap. Goals often flow early, with the eight goals in the opening ten minutes a league-high ahead of the round.
West Ham’s first win in eight league games last week lifted them out of the relegation zone; it was also their fifth win to see them win by a margin of at least two goals. Furthermore, their HT/FT win in that game gives them a 62.5% Premier League success rate when leading at the break. Amid a run of five straight away Premier League defeats, the last four of which saw them concede first, the ‘Hammers’ have nonetheless claimed at least a point in five of 13 games as an away outsider this term. With all but one of their 11 Premier League away games to find a winner seeing the victor score first, the first goal could be crucial here.
Liverpool Vs. Bournemouth
With three defeats across their last four competitive matches, Liverpool’s sense of invincibility is waning. They failed to find the net in all three losses and conceded an average of 2.00 goals per-match across the four fixtures. However, they still boast full points from 14 home Premier League matches, with nine of those coming by a margin of at least two goals. Liverpool have torn Bournemouth apart across the last five H2Hs, winning 3-0 thrice and 4-0 twice. A majority of the goals from those matches arrived in the first half, but just one came within the opening 15 minutes. Conversely, the 20th-35th minute interval has seen six goals!
Bournemouth, meanwhile, enters the round in the relegation zone after three matches without a win. Five straight Premier League away games have ended in defeat, with four of those seeing the ‘Cherries’ fail to score, and Eddie Howe’s men conceding 2.4 goals on average.
The Cherries’ tally of ten away defeats, and their total of six first-half failures in away matches are, respectively, a Premier League-high and the second-highest in the league entering this round. If nothing else, entertainment has been on offer, with six straight competitive matches involving ‘The Cherries’ have featured at least three goals.
