Premier League 2020-21 – Matchweek 5 Betting Tips

The Premier League returns this weekend with matchweek 5 and we take a look at the betting tips of the most exciting games to look forward to.

After four consecutive wins, Everton is currently sitting on top of the Premier League table with maximum points (12pts) after the opening 4 games of the 2020/21 season.

But this weekend, they face a big test when they welcome defending champions Liverpool to Goodison Park for the Merseyside derby for matchday 5, which will see all 20 teams get a piece of the action.

Supersoka takes a look at matchweek 5 Premier League betting tips and has identified the six most exciting games of the weekend.

Everton vs Liverpool, 2:30pm

The international break really did not come at a good time for Everton however, it was quite timely for Liverpool after unbelievable 7-2 devastating loss to Aston Villa. This derby provides anticipation, especially after the international break allowing Sadio Mane and Thiago Alcantara recover from the coronavirus.

The Merseyside derby has not been quite a delightful experience for Everton. The toffees have actually failed to win in their last 22 games against Liverpool in all competitions, a run dating back to 2010.

With Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s form and the return of Mane plus Thiago, we expect goals at both sides

Betting Tip: Both Teams To Score @1.49

Manchester City vs Arsenal, 7:30pm

Man City are high favourites to beat Arsenal at Etihad Stadium, however, Man City have kept just one clean sheet in their last 7 games across all competitions. The defensive holes will certainly hold them back in their pursuit of the title this season. But we should also acknowledge that Man City have scored in 39 of their last 40 Premier League home games.

On the other hand, Arsenal has managed just one clean sheet in their last 9 Premier League games. Given the poor back lines at both ends, we should expect goals in this one.

Newcastle United vs Manchester United, 10:00pm

After conceding six-goal against Tottenham at Old Trafford, the defensive problems at Manchester United are absolutely clear. And with the arrival of an attack-minded left-back Alex Telles, clearly, this won’t solve the problem at hand as they meet Newcastle who has scored and conceded in 3 consecutive games.

Despite signing Edinson Cavani on the transfer deadline day, Manchester United’s attack didn’t need much boost because they have managed to score in every game this season. Meanwhile, Callum Wilson is leading the attack for the Magpies and this calls for goals at both ends.

Crystal Palace vs Brighton, 4:00pm

The two arch rivals collide again on Sunday, and Crystal Palace comes into this game with just one win out of their last 6 home games. It should be remembered that last season, Crystal Palace picked most of their points away from home, and they are most likely to struggle against a solid Brighton side.

Brighton has won 3 of their last 5 away games in the Premier League, and they boast of 3 consecutive away wins, with their loss coming when they faced Everton, currently the table leaders, yet they still managed to score two goals.

Betting Tip: Double Chance X2 (Brighton Draw or Win) @1.48

Tottenham vs West Ham, 6:30pm

Jose Mourinho is starting to build momentum after thrashing Mann Utd 6-1 at Old Trafford, but we should all accept that this isn’t his typical type of team. When you watch All Or Nothing: Tottenham Hotspur, Chairman Daniel Levy is seen telling Jose Mourinho that they want to win games with style. This has led to Mourinho having a leaky defence and both teams have scored in their last 7 games.

Such a leaky defence cannot stand a chance against West Ham who has managed to score 13 goals in their last four games, and they have also scored in their last 5 away games in the Premier League.

Betting Tip: Both Teams To Score @1.62

Leicester City vs Aston Villa, 9:15pm

After destroying defending champions Liverpool with a 7-2 victory, Aston Villa will hope to build on the momentum as they visit a Leicester City side that has conceded twice in each of their last 4 games.
