Matchday 23 Premier League: Best & Worst
Best of Week 23: Liverpool v. Manchester City
Sunday, February 7, 11:30a.m. ET
Watch on NBCSN, Telemundo
|This is without a doubt the must-watch match of the weekend as fourth-place Liverpool play host to first-place Man City in a battle of the giants. City are currently riding a 12-game unbeaten streak that took them from a near-season-low 13th place all the way up to first place, where they’ve been sitting for three weeks in a row. They’ve had a relatively easy last few matches as they faced West Brom, Sheffield, and Burnley to log some easy wins and now they’ll turn to the Reds in hope of continuing that streak. Liverpool has stumbled lately, losing three of their last six matches, with two wins and a draw in that timespan.|
Fresh off a loss at home to Brighton, Jurgen Klopp’s side will fight tooth and nail for a win to stay in contention for a top four spot. Luckily, history is on Liverpool’s side as Man City haven’t been able to log a win at Anfield since 2003. A win for the Reds would put them within four points of City, and they could potentially leapfrog Leicester right into third place depending on other league results, Dknation Draftkings expressed.
Worst of Week 23: Burnley v. Brighton & Hove Albion
Saturday, February 6, 10:00a.m. ET
Watch on Peacock
Two sides near the bottom of the table will square off in hopes of gaining some much-needed points to climb the table. Surprisingly, Brighton have gone unbeaten in their last four, snapping their nine-match winless skid with a solid 1-0 win over Leeds in Week 19. They had only won two games all season long prior to that, and now they’ve gone 3-1-0 since then, knocking off two heavy hitters with a 1-0 win over Tottenham and a 1-0 win over Liverpool earlier this week.
Now they’ll set their sights on 17th-place Burnley, who have lost fiver of their last six showings. While this match may not have much of an effect on the table itself — Burnley sits eight points clear of Fulham and the relegation zone — they’ll both be playing for the win in what is likely to be a low-scoring affair.
Premier League Matchday 23: Odds and Beating Preview
Tottenham (+120) at Watford (+210), Draw (+260)
You’d have to go all the way back to November 2012 to find the last time Tottenham lost three league matches in a row. These are desperate times for Spurs, who are in real danger of falling too far behind to compete for a top-four spot this season. It doesn’t seem like Jose Mourinho’s had any sort of positive impact on this side, with Tottenham all over the place at the moment.
Without Harry Kane, Spurs have struggled to score and defend. Overall, they’re lacking an identity right now, and a Watford side that’s playing well will be a tricky opponent for Mourinho’s side.
The Hornets have pulled out of the bottom three by virtue of winning four of their last five in the league, and Nigel Pearson deserves a ton of credit for the work he’s done since taking charge. Spurs will likely come into this match with real urgency, but Watford’s form has been superb and you’d expect them to prolong Tottenham’s wait for their first league win of 2020.
Pick: Draw (+260)
Sheffield United (+333) at Arsenal (-120), Draw (+260)
Arsenal will be without their talisman and top scorer, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, as he serves the first of a three-match ban, and the timing couldn’t be much worse ahead of a date with one of the league’s stingiest defenses. This will be a difficult test for Mikel Arteta’s side and a good measuring stick to see how far the Gunners have come under his guidance.
In their last two away games, Sheffield United lost away from home for the first two times this season. Still, it’s hard to be concerned about defeats against Liverpool and Manchester City. The Blades did well to rebound last weekend – beating West Ham – and I fully expect Chris Wilder’s side to frustrate Arsenal from start to finish. With Aubameyang suspended and Lucas Torreira dealing with a knock, expect Sheffield United to return home from north London with at least a point.
Pick: Draw (+260)
Everton (+145) at West Ham (+180), Draw (+250)
Not having Richarlison for the first time this season will certainly deal a blow to Everton’s attack, but there’s been a lot to like about the Toffees under Carlo Ancelotti. It’s been a mixed bag for David Moyes since taking charge of West Ham, but there should be some added motivation here as he comes up against his former side, which he was rumored to be rejoining before the Italian was appointed.
Tactically Moyes will likely take a more cautious approach to this match as he continues figuring out what he’s got. West Ham have won just once at home in the league since the start of October – against a reeling Bournemouth side – and with an in-form Everton team visiting London Stadium, a share of the spoils feels inevitable.
Pick: Draw (+250)
Leicester City (-120) at Burnley (+333), Draw (+275)
I’ll go against my typical approach to Burnley matches this time around. The Clarets have always been resilient under Sean Dyche, who always seems capable of getting a positive response from his side when the going gets tough. But it’s now been four defeats in a row for Burnley, including a pair of really disappointing displays at Turf Moor.
It’s reached the point now where you start to wonder whether Dyche’s message has begun to wane. Burnley will also be catching Leicester at a bad time, as the Foxes are coming off a home defeat to Southampton. Brendan Rodgers has surely been pushing his players all week, and I feel much more confident about getting a positive response from Leicester right now than I do about Burnley, Betasoccer cited.
