Gameweek 11 is here. Here are some cracking matches lined up in the English Premier League. It’s the weekend footy everyone loves, and here’s a quick rundown of the key games.
The Rising Favourites
Football bets are already being made for the greater EPL season and we’re seeing favourites such as Arsenal and Liverpool fluctuate a little more than usual in the public opinion. One of the most accurate ways to judge this is to look at odds, as they take everything from current form and head-to-head stats to injuries into account. As such, according to some reliable odds for winning the EPL, Man City is the current favourite.
City has odds of 4/6, ahead of everyone else. At the second place is Arsenal with odds of 9/2. This is certainly news to some, whereas a no-brainer for others. Regardless of which side of the fence a fan is, they have to agree that there’s more to it than meets the eye.
Upon asking anyone who’s always updated on the latest and greatest in EPL to give some football tips for the next games, it’s sure to be expected that the upcoming top matches including Arsenal are going to be a spectacle. It’s simply one of the best teams right now to look at—And monitor closely for any surprises.
So far, City’s performance hasn’t been ideal. But it’s expected to change very soon. On the other hand, Arsenal’s performance can grow by leaps and bounds if they get their game right.

First up, Man Utd are kicking things off against Fulham. They’ve been having a bit of a rough patch lately, and the pressure’s piling up on them. Can they bounce back? Only time will tell. Then, it’s Arsenal on the road to face Newcastle. The Gunners will be looking to put their midweek defeat behind them. The Magpies, though, have tasted victory at Old Trafford recently, so they’re not to be taken lightly.
Tottenham and Chelsea go head-to-head in a London derby. Pochettino’s back in north London with his Blues, and it’s going to be a heated one. These two teams never disappoint in terms of drama. Merson said that he’ll “be shocked if Tottenham beat Chelsea.”
Over in Brentford, they’re hosting West Ham in one of the 15:00 (GMT) kick-offs. Brentford’s been surprising folks with their recent form, and the Hammers will want to build on their Carabao Cup win against Arsenal.
Burnley’s hoping to escape the relegation zone as they face Crystal Palace. Both teams are struggling for wins, so this could be a make-or-break game for them. Everton’s welcoming Brighton, and they’ve been on the upswing. But Roberto De Zerbi’s men are no pushovers. It’s a clash that could go either way.
Man City, fresh from a solid win in the Manchester derby, is hosting Bournemouth. The Cherries got their first league win recently, so let’s see if they can work some magic up north.

At the bottom of the table, Sheffield United takes on Wolverhampton Wanderers. The Blades are looking for their first win, but Wolves won’t make it easy for them. The Blades will also be playing without 9 players (injuries and illnesses), and this can be a huge problem.
And, to top it off, it’s a Monday night blockbuster with Tottenham facing Chelsea. Pochettino’s back in the capital with his Blues, and he’ll be looking to spoil Spurs’ excellent start under Ange Postecoglou.
There you have it, a bit of footy banter to get you ready for the weekend. It’s certainly a rollercoaster ride in Gameweek 11.
