The Premier League enters the fourteenth Gameweek of the 2018-19 campaign, featuring Liverpool and Everton in the Merseyside derby and more.
It’s a mouth-watering matchweek for Premier League fans, which was kicked off by the match between Cardiff and Wolves. We will not be covering that. But, Saturday features Leicester vs Watford, with both teams impressing in spates this season. Another important match is at St. Mary’s, where Southampton host a Manchester United side desperate for a win.
The action-packed Sunday is kicked off by a London derby that had almost been forgotten – Chelsea vs Fulham. It’s followed another London derby, only a fiercer one, with Arsenal locking horns with Tottenham, who outsmarted Chelsea last weekend.
Rounding off the eventful matchweek is the Merseyside derby, a derby that comes perhaps at the most opportune time, with Everton finding their feet and Liverpool starting to lose some of their steam.
Before we move on to the profitable markets, let us take a look at how things panned out for us in the thirteenth gameweek.
Favourable Bets Result: 9/16

THT Favourable Bets Overall: 98/182
Southampton vs Manchester United
A match that might as well be chalked as ‘The One’ as far as Manchester United’s hopes of a revival are concerned for this season. Southampton are in dire straits and are the perfect opponents for Jose Mourinho and his men. But, after the trepid show against Crystal Palace and Young Boys, the manager will be hoping for somewhat of a more clinical approach from his squad.
Even though the table makes it seem so, Southampton are no pushovers and the injury to Victor Lindelof might upset the newfound defensive balance for Manchester United. But, we expect the away side to pull through.
1. Manchester United to win @ 1.95
2. Over 2.5 Match Goals @ 1.90
1. Marcus Rashford to score anytime @ 3.10
Chelsea vs Fulham
Another top team that has recently tasted defeat, Chelsea will be looking to bounce back from their London derby humiliation at the hands of Tottenham with a win over another London club, Fulham. Claudio Ranieri’s appointment has already given the squad a lift and three points.
The former Chelsea manager will be hoping to heap more misery on Sarri’s men on Sunday. Ranieri’s appointment and the subsequent win does add a bit of spice to the matchup. But, we just don’t see Chelsea losing this game.
1. Fulham Asian Handicap + 2.0 @ 2.070
2. Eden Hazard to score anytime @ 1.57
3. Both Teams to Score – YES @ 1.95
1. Aleksandar Mitrovic to score anytime @ 4.00
Arsenal vs Tottenham
Tottenham seem to be peaking at the opportune time. Arsenal are pushing themselves towards the top end of the table as well. The Gunners will be up against it. This one is expected to be an enticing matchup.
1. Arsenal Draw No Bet @ 1.83
2. Over 10.5 Corners @ 1.83
3. Over 2.5 Match Goals @ 1.53
1. Dele Alli to score anytime @ 3.75
Liverpool vs Everton
It doesn’t get bigger than the Merseyside derby for an Everton fan. The Toffees have seen steady progress, but the arrival of Marco Silva at helm has brought on a bit more positivity around the club. Now, with the club also progressing towards the right end of the table and with Liverpool starting to falter a bit, this fixture has become exciting.
Marco Silva’s footballing philosophy combined with Jurgen Klopp’s gegenpressing will ensure there are goals in this fixture. Expect another classic, perhaps.
1. Everton Asian Handicap + 1.5 @ 1.700
2. Over 10.5 Corners @ 2.10
3. Over 2.5 Match Goals @ 1.66
1. Over 14 Corners @ 8.00
