Manchester City have continued their spectacular run during midweek’s round 14, which saw them retain their 8-point lead over second-placed Manchester United at the top of the table.
The upcoming round this weekend will feature great matchups that offer some of the best online betting news sites in UK, so make sure to explore our betting opportunities below for round 15 of the Premier League.
Chelsea v Newcastle – H 1/4 (1.25) D 11/2 (6.50) A 14/1 (15.00)
Antonio Conte guided Chelsea to Premier League glory last season, however with the both Manchester clubs experiencing a stellar run this season the Blues find themselves in third position with 29 points. What will definitely work in their favour this weekend is the fact that Stamford Bridge is known as a tough ground for visiting sides to perform; Newcastle away record stands at 4 losses, 2 draws and only 1 victory.
Chelsea have clinched 4 wins so far in front of their home support, so we’re backing them to win this weekend against Newcastle. Including this bet on the Blues into your accumulator could be a great addition considering odds of 1/4 (1.25) – a virtually guaranteed victory.

Brighton v Liverpool – H 13/2 (7.50) D 7/2 (4.50) A 1/2 (1.50)
With Man City already having claimed 40 points from a possible 42 until this stage in the campaign, Jurgen Klopp will have to come up with a new strategy if he is to have any chance of catching up with Pep Guardiola’s men, but also the rest of the clubs who find themselves ahead of the Reds.

Liverpool will next take on newly promoted Brighton & Hove Albion away from Anfield – if they manage to win this match, they’ll extend their winning form away from home to 3 straight games, which could serve as a serious confidence booster for the players in the long run. That’s why we’re backing them to clinch another 3 important points against the Seagulls.
Arsenal v Manchester United – H 3/2 (2.50) D 12/5 (3.39) A 2/1 (3.00)
The Emirates will stage the most thrilling game of the weekend, which will see Arsene Wenger go head to head with his arch rival “The Special One” – Jose Mourinho. Although Arsenal are in fourth position (yes, again) on the table, they – along with Man United – hold the best home record in the league – 100% win rate.
Providers of internet betting in UK remain somewhat divided on this match, but Bet365 Sportsbooks is giving the Emirates side slightly higher chances. Perhaps that;s got something to do with Man United’s record away from Old Trafford; out of the last five games on the road they’ve clinched 2 losses, 1 draw and 2 wins.
We would have normally placed our bets with the home side in other situations, however Arsene Wenger doesn’t have a strong record against his Portuguese counterpart. But also, looking at Jose Mourinho’s stats in the last few games, we’d be willing to wager on a draw with goals for this juicy encounter.
