Including such top games like the Leicester City vs Manchester United match where the winner can jump to the top of the table. While in the London derby Chelsea are favored to win against Arsenal in the Premier League Christmas fixtures odds.
Premier League games are always special at the Christmas holidays, as teams become very busy during the festive period. First, six games will be played on Boxing Day beginning with a very important match between Leicester and Manchester United. Chelsea will also feature on Saturday then 48 hours later again. Along with Manchester City and Crystal Palace who will both play in two days time. Current leader Liverpool are a little luckier after they can enjoy a two-day break before their next feature on the 30th. Their match against Newcastle will also be the last PL game of 2020.
Premier League Christmas fixtures odds favor United’s away win
Following their recent victories against Tottenham, Leicester City found themselves in 2nd place of the Premier League, 4 points behind Liverpool. The team is in great form again this season thanks to great management of Brendan Rogers. And of course, brilliant players like Jamie Vardy, James Maddison or Nampalys Mendy. But they will face a very tough opponent on Boxing Day in Manchester United.
The Red Devils suffered some disappointing losses in the beginning of the season, and were knocked out from the Champions League. But in their recent games they played confidently and climbed to 3rd place in the table with a game on their hands. So no wonder that online sportsbooks in the UK offer the smallest odds, 2.30 for their victory. Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s are likely to rely again on their counter-attacks and scores from Bruno Fernandes or Marcus Rashford. But the Foxes follow similar tactics and can be very dangerous to United’s defense. Their odds to win the game is 2.90 in the Premier League Christmas fixtures odds.
Can Arsenal finally get a win?
The Gunners have been struggling all season. They are only in 15th place with only four wins out of 14 games. And they will face a tough task at Christmas when they meet their London rivals, Chelsea. Who are standing in 8th place at the moment after losing their last two games against Wolverhampton and Everton. But with a great performance Lampard’s team can get close again to the top. Online gambling sites in the UK offer the odds of 2.00 for their win at the Emirates.
While Arsenal’s odds to surprise the Blues are quite high, 3.60. Even though Mikel Arteta and the team need to show something now to calm down the fans who are getting really upset. They might have a chance if Aubemayang and Lacazette can get back to their last year’s form. But they also need to be careful at the back where several players are missing due to red cards and injuries. If they lose again, it might be the last game of Arteta who is on the brink of being sacked.
The champions play at home, Spurs visit the Wolves
Liverpool will host West Brom on Sunday who appointed Sam Allardyce as their new manager last week. Well, his debut wasn’t the best after the team lost 3-0 against Aston Villa at home. Now his job gets even more difficult as his team will face Liverpool in the next round. Jurgen Klopp’s side are back in top form and lead the league after their last two victories. They should get the three points again and have the odds of 1.12 to do so.
Meanwhile Spurs, who were leading just a week ago, are down to 5th place after losing their last two games. Now Mourinho’s men will play against Wolverhampton who have already beat Chelsea and Arsneal this season. But Tottenham have been superb this season along with their key players, Son Heung-min and Harry Kane. After losing against Liverpool and Leicester, surely they will aim for the three points now. And they have the odds of 2.15 to get them on bet365.
