The English Premier League is slowly gaining momentum as the 2021/22 title race takes shape. However, there are still surprise results making it more challenging to determine how it will all end. For instance, United lost to Villa over the weekend as Brentford put on a spirited fight to draw with Liverpool. Such results make it hard for sports betting fans to wager on EPL matches. Betting fans in Asia can read the latest Betting News Asia updates to ensure their bets are more accurate. The bettors will have to bring their A-Game in the November 6th weekend dubbed the Bonfire Night weekend, when the Manchester derby will take place at Old Trafford.
Ole’s men are currently fourth in the Premier League table with 13 points after playing six matches. They won four, drew one, and dramatically lost to Aston Villa. On the other hand, Manchester City are second on the table with 13 points but are ahead of United on goal difference.
This year’s encounter is set to be a mouth-watering encounter, especially with the return of Cristiano Ronaldo to Old Trafford. Moreover, the match will be played in front of more than 75000 fans in the stadium, making it even more interesting.
At the moment, none of the teams has shown it has what it takes to dominate the other. However, Pep Guardiola looks more technically astute than Ole, and that could be the difference. However, recent results have shown that Ole is capable of pulling surprises during the Manchester Derby. Can he do it again on November 6th?
Arteta Vs. Klopp
After the third international break of the season, EPL matches will resume on November 20th, with Arsenal taking on Liverpool at Anfield. At the moment, Liverpool sit on top of the table with 14 points from 6 matches. Jurgen Klopp’s side look determined to wrestle the Premier League title back. However, their draw with Brentford showed that it would not be an easy task.
The Reds welcomed their captain Virgil Van Dijk back from injury this season, and their forward line seems to be scoring goals for fun. On the other hand, Arsenal have had a tough start to the season after losing several key players to injury and sickness.
However, Arteta’s men seemed to have rediscovered their form after convincingly beating Spurs 3-1 in an entertaining clash. If they can build from this win, they will be in form when they come against Liverpool.
The challenge for both teams is that the match will be happening after the third international break. They will be hoping that their stars will not pick up injuries while on international duty. But, based on previous head-to-head statistics, Liverpool look better placed to emerge triumphant in the encounter.
It might not be straightforward to determine what will happen in November. Many things could have changed by then. At the moment, all the managers and fans will be hoping their teams keep up their fitness and confidence levels to perform at the highest levels.
