Premier League

Seven Games That Will Win You Big Tonight

Tottenham Hotspurs return to Premier League action tonight without their sacked Portuguese head coach Jose Mourinho. Also in action tonight are league leaders Manchester City who saw their quadruple hopes ended by Chelsea on Saturday. How will the two teams perform tonight? Will the controversies surrounding the so called European Super League have an effect on players or will it be business as usual? Read on for some expert predictions on these two and five other matches.

1 Tottenham vs Southampton

Tottenham came from behind to thump Southampton 5-2 when these two sides met at St Mary's earlier in the season. Both teams have been in poor form since the turn of the year with Jose Mourinho being a casualty of the same.

It's Southampton who have suffered the most during the second half of the 2020/2021 PL season. The Saints have been very poor away from home losing 7 of their last 8 away league games. Spurs may be struggling but they've won 3 of their last 4 home league games.

The house have also beaten Southampton in each of their last 2 meetings. Expect Spurs to condemn the Saints to their 8th away league defeat in 9 matches.

2 Aston Villa vs Manchester City

Manchester City have won each of their last 9 PL games on the road and favorites to win again tonight. However,the Citizens' defensive line has been breached in each of their last 4 clashes. With Aston Villa scoring in 3 of their last 4 league games, chances of both sides registering on the scoresheet are high.

3 Borussia Dortmund vs Union Berlin

Borussia Dortmund have scored in each of their last 41 competitive matches. However, they've conceded in each of their last 6 while Union Berlin have found the back of the net in 7 of their last 8 Bundesliga games.

Therefore, we expect a high scoring affair at the Signal Iduna Park. You can bank on both teams to score and over 2.5 match goals.

4 Birmingham vs Nottingham Forest

Nottingham Forest have only won 2 of their last 10 Championship games, losing 4. Birmingham City, in the other hand, have 4 wins (D1L1) from their last 6 league outings. The hosts have also won each of their last 3 home league games. Go for a home win here.

5 Crotone vs Sampdoria

Crotone have lost 12 of their last 13 Serie A clashes and 10 of their 15 home league games this season. The hosts have also lost 15 of their 16 meetings with sides in the top half. Bank on Sampdoria to win tonight.

6 Alaves vs Villarreal

Alaves have been in very poor form, losing 6 of their last 9 league games. Alaves lost 3-1 when these two sides met earlier in the season and with Villarreal winning 8 of their last 9 competitive clashes, expect another three points for the red-hot visitors.

7 AC Milan vs Sassuolo

AC Milan have won 3 of their last 4 league games but have conceded in each of their last 7 clashes at San Siro. With Sassuolo scoring in 14 of their 16 away league games this season, we are backing AC Milan to win and both teams to score.

Summary

Tottenham vs Southampton - home win

Aston Villa vs Man City - City win & both teams to score

Dortmund vs Union Berlin - both teams to score & over 2.5 match goals

Birmingham vs Nottingham Forest - home win

Crotone vs Sampdoria - away win

Alaves vs Villarreal - away win
