6 Premier Leagues games tonight in our Soccer 6 pool that closes at 19:39 tonight
Midweek Premier League action make up the fixtures in Wednesday’s Soccer 6 Pool 3 coupon. Man City have yet to slip up and are unlikely to do so when they host Southampton, while manager David Moyes has had little time to affect West Ham’s fortunes before visiting his old stomping ground of Goodison Park.
1 – Arsenal V Huddersfield
Goals have been in short supply for Huddersfield this season, a Nicolas Otamendi own goal put them ahead against Manchester City at the weekend but the Terriers wound up losing 2-1 without a single shot on target. Manager David Wagner will be hoping they can be more of a threat on goal when they visit Arsenal on Wednesday night. The Gunners were very fortunate to win 1-0 against Burnley at the weekend, an Alexis Sanchez penalty at the death snatched them a full three points. On home soil however, their results make better reading. They’ve won all six league home matches this season, four of them to nil. Arsenal home win.
2 – Bournemouth V Burnley
Bournemouth have steadied the ship after a poor start to the season and have now lost just one of their last five league matches. Improvements in defence have been evident as they’ve kept a clean sheet in their last three, but they’ve been less of a threat going forward. They visited Swansea at the weekend and could only come away with a 0-0 draw, Burnley will likely prove to be tougher to break down. The Clarets need to bounce back from yet another unlucky result against Arsenal, they performed well and deserved at least a point so they should fancy their chances here. They’ve been a difficult team to beat this season and currently occupy 7th in the table. Draw or Burnley win.
3 – Chelsea V Swansea
Chelsea topped their Champions League group after another hefty win over Qarabag, before a late goal from Willian rescued a point against Liverpool at Anfield at the weekend. The league title looks to be heading to Manchester this season, but the defending champions have tightened it up recently with four clean sheets in their last six matches. Swansea are currently the lowest scoring team in the Premier League this season with just seven goals, four of which were scored by Chelsea loan striker Tammy Abraham. He’ll be eager to have an impact at Stamford Bridge but there’s little chance of the Swans getting something out of this game. Chelsea home win.
4 – Everton V West Ham
Scraping a win against Watford before drawing with Crystal Palace has not signalled a reversal of fortune for Everton after they sank to a new low when beaten 4-1 by Southampton on Sunday. They’ve lost seven of their last nine in all competitions and leaked twenty-seven goals in the process and are just two points off the drop zone in the league table. West Ham are also in disarray and new manager David Moyes has a job on his hands to get things turned around. The Hammers are winless in four matches, most recently drawing 1-1 against Leicester last Friday. Both sides will want to use this match as a confidence builder, but with both in such dire form it’s difficult to see an outright winner. Draw.
5 – Man City V Southampton
Manchester City’s only dropped point in the Premier League this season was a 1-1 draw with Everton back in August. Since then they’ve put together an 18-match win streak across all competitions and no one is coming close to halting their march towards the title. Southampton dispatched Everton 4-1 at the weekend but that result is not reflective of an inconsistent league campaign this season. Their only wins have been against struggling teams, West Ham, Crystal Palace, West Brom and Everton. On the road they’ve only beat Palace and lost 3-0 to Liverpool last time out. This trip to the Etihad could see them suffer a heavier defeat. Man City home win.
6 – Stoke V Liverpool
Stoke had picked up five points in three Premier League matches before their clash with Crystal Palace at the weekend. They squandered a second-half lead to lose 2-1 which brings their goals conceded tally up to 26, only Everton have leaked more in the Premier League this term. Only the two Manchester sides have outscored Liverpool in the league this season, but the Reds have also failed to keep a clean sheet in their league games away from home. The Potters have managed one goal in each of their last three meetings with Liverpool, but if they find the net it’s unlikely to be enough to win. Liverpool away win.
