Premier League

Thursday's Well Predicted Soccer Tips To Bank on For a Big Return

TOTTENHAM V BRENTFORD

Tottenham Hotspur will be hoping to bounce back here after a 2-1 Conference League loss in their previous game against Mura.

The only player to score from Tottenham Hotspur was Harry Kane (72'). Tomi Horvat (11') and Amadej Maroša (94') scored for Mura.

Over their prior six games, Antonio Conte's Tottenham Hotspur have hit the back of the net a combined total of 7 times - an average number of goals per match of 1.17.

Brentford head into the clash following on from a 1-0 Premier League win in the defeat of Everton in their most recent game.

In that match, Brentford had 40% possession and 6 shots on goal with 4 on target. The scorer for Brentford was Ivan Toney (24'). For their opponents, Everton got 14 shots on goal with 5 of them on target.

In their previous half-dozen outings, Brentford have amassed a total of 9 goals. Brentford have also managed to score on each one of those occasions. During that period, they’ve had 11 goals go against them. We will have to see whether or not that trend will be continued on here.

Coming into this fixture, Brentford are without an away win for the past 2 league games.

Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

MANCHESTER UNITED V ARSENAL

Manchester United will play in this fixture after a 1-1 Premier League drawn result versus Chelsea.

In that game, Manchester United managed 34% possession and 3 shots at goal with 2 on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Manchester United was Jadon Sancho (50'). For their opponents, Chelsea got 24 shots at goal with 6 of them on target. Jorginho (69') was the scorer for Chelsea.

Michael Carrick's Manchester United have hit the target 9 times in their past 6 outings. At the other end, the tally of goals that they have conceded in those same games is 9.

Arsenal will go into this game after a 2-0 Premier League win vs Newcastle United in their previous outing.

In that match, Arsenal had 66% possession and 23 shots at goal with 6 on target. For Arsenal, goals were scored by Bukayo Saka (56') and Gabriel Martinelli (66'). Newcastle United had 9 shots at goal with 5 on target.

The trend of at least one team not scoring a goal in games featuring Arsenal has become evident of late. Examining their last 6 outings reveals that this has happened 5 times. In those clashes, their opponents have hit a goal aggregate of 5 while Arsenal have scored 10.

Heading into this contest, Arsenal haven't been beaten by Manchester United in games played away from home for the previous 3 league games.

Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

TORINO V EMPOLI

Torino will be hoping to return to winning ways here following the 1-0 Serie A loss in their previous game against Roma.

In that game, Torino had 69% possession and 17 attempts at goal with 3 of them on target. Roma had 10 attempts at goal with 2 of them on target. Tammy Abraham (32') was the scorer for Roma.

It’s been all too rare in recent games where Torino have shown defensive steel. The reality is that Torino have failed to prevent opponents from scoring in 5 of their previous 6 matches, letting in 6 goals in the process. That kind of pattern isn’t assured to be carried forward here, of course.

Going into this one, Torino are undefeated in their previous 3 league matches at home.

Empoli head into the meeting following on from a 2-1 Serie A win in the defeat of Fiorentina in their most recent match.

In that match, Empoli managed 51% possession and 17 shots on goal with 5 on target. For Empoli, the scorers were Filippo Bandinelli (87') and Andrea Pinamonti (89'). Fiorentina got 16 attempts at goal with 7 of them on target. Dušan Vlahović (57') scored for Fiorentina.

In a total of 5 of the previous 6 clashes involving Empoli, three or more goals have gone in. The overall average number of goals per match in that spell is 3.5, with the number of goals averaged by Empoli standing at 1.83.

Coming into this contest, Empoli are winless against Torino when they've played them away from home in the last 2 league games.

Prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
