All the top league across Europe has been on hold due to the international break that saw national sides take on friendlies all over the world. But now it’s time to get back to reality and what better way to do that than to watch and bet on your favourite championship – the Premier League.
Brighton v Leicester City – H 9/5 (2.79) D 9/4 (3.25) A 3/2 (2.50)
Leicester City are a far cry from the team they were two years ago when they defied all odds and went on to win the Premier League. At the moment, they find themselves in 8th position on the table with 40 points, having won only one match in the last 5 rounds, as the other games ended with 3 draws and a loss – a super disappointing records considering that just last year they were playing in the Champions League.

They’ll take on Brighton away this Saturday, but it won’t be easy as the Seagulls have won their last 3 encounters at home and will be looking to extend that great run. It’s hard to predict which way this game will go taking into account the individual performances of both sides. We’re willing to place our bets with online sportsbooks in UK rather with Brighton, with a potential draw for the match this weekend.
Arsenal v Stoke City – H 1/3 (1.33) D 4/1 (5.00) A 8/1 (9.00)
With this being already the 31st round in the Premier League, time is quickly running out for the clubs to secure and/or reach the top 4, in order to qualify for next season’s games in Europe. Arsenal are exactly one of those sides that could potentially miss out on the Champions League next year if they don’t improve their current standing of 6th on the table; it would be the second consecutive year without Europe’s elite competition if they miss out on the top spots on the table.
This means that points to collect are scarce which could propel Arsene Wenger to his best in the time remaining. For the upcoming game against Stoke City they’re the favourites to win in front of the home supporters, so it really would be a surprise if they lost, despite losing 3 straight games before recording a victory in the last round.
Chelsea v Tottenham – H 5/4 (2.25) D 16/7 (3.29) A 11/5 (3.20)
We reserved the best for last, as the Blues will go head to head with Spurs in what could be a thrilling London derby this weekend. Tottenham sit right above Chelsea on the table, with a relatively comfortable 5-point gap, and what’s more striking are the performances of each sides of the recent encounters. Mauricio Pochettino’s men have won 4 straight games so far, while Antonio Conte has struggled to get the best out of his players recently, as the team have collected only 6 points from a possible 15 over the last 5 rounds.

But the point is that this weekend’s clash will be played at Stamford Bridge, which is a tough ground to win on for visiting sides. That’s why we’re unsure which way the game will go, so we’re going to bet on a draw with providers of internet betting in UK.
