We provide potentially marketable betting tips for Gameweek 21 of the Premier League featuring Arsenal vs Manchester United as the Match of the Day.
Everton kick things off in an early Saturday kick-off as they welcome a Newcastle United that are struggling to get points on board and have quickly become one of the few relegation favourites. Manchester City will be wary of the upturn in morale that Sheffield United would have received after their shock 2-1 away win over Manchester United.
Wolves have not been able to find the back of the net with much regularity but Nuno Espirito Santo would hope his side can do better against Crystal Palace. The big match though, is at Emirates, with Arsenal and Manchester United set to renew their rivalry on Saturday.
Burnley will be looking to take advantage of the managerial change at Chelsea when they visit Stamford Bridge on Sunday. West Ham welcome a Liverpool side in real defensive crisis while Tottenham will be looking to bounce back to winning terms as they travel to face Brighton.
Manchester City vs Sheffield United
Five clean sheets in a row for Manchester City at home going into this fixture during the weekend, Sheffield United will find it hard to get past the pairing of John Stones and Ruben Dias. The Blades have been leaking goals almost every match away from this season, which favours Manchester City. We might be looking at a clean 2-0 win from the home side to stretch their unbeaten run to 12 Premier League games.
1. Manchester City Clean Sheet – YES @ 1.53
1. Under 2.5 Match Goals @ 2.62
Arsenal vs Manchester United
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United haven’t managed a win against the rest of the BIG SIX this season in the Premier League and even though, they come into this game on the back of shock defeat at the hands of Sheffield United, they will be the favourites at Emirates due to their magnanimous away form that stretches beyond a year now.
Arsenal’s home form has improved but Mikel Arteta’s side still has holes in their defence, which will make them prone to Manchester United’s hungry and pacy attack.

1. Bruno Fernandes to score anytime @ 2.75
Chelsea vs Burnley
Thomas Tuchel will have had only a few days to work with his players when they host Burnley. The German looks comfortable with the challenge but Burnley will be hoping to welcome him in their own way. 2 wins out of their last 2 Premier League matches, Burnley have jumped to 15th and 9 points above the relegation zone.
Chelsea’s recent home form and form, in general, is cause for concern. Tuchel’s first aim would be to have the German wizards Timo Werner and Kai Havertz start firing in attack. Burnley have conceded just three goals in their last five games, including a clean sheet and a 1-0 win over Liverpool. This looks like it will be a struggle for Tuchel, who is likely to need a bit more time to oil the Chelsea horses.
1. Under 2.5 Match Goals @ 2.10
2. Burnley Asian Handicap + 1.5 @ 1.900
1. Correct Scoreline – Chelsea 0-0 Burnley @ 12.00
West Ham vs Liverpool
The 21st Gameweek of the 2020/21 Premier League does have intriguing matches lined up one after another and this one is no exception. West Ham are on a roll under David Moyes and find themselves just two points adrift of their upcoming visitors Liverpool in the Premier League.
Liverpool’s defensive crisis has worsened after the likes of Fabinho and Joel Matip were added to the list of potential unavailabilities. This has all the makings of another frustrating evening for Jurgen Klopp as West Ham look primed to take some points off Liverpool on Sunday.
1. West Ham Asian Handicap +1 @ 1.600
1. West Ham to win @ 4.33
2. West Ham Clean Sheet – YES @ 6.00
Brighton vs Tottenham
Brighton have been pushed into the relegation dogfight after a downpour of poor performances. For all of Tottenham’s struggles, their away form has been good in the 2020/21 Premier League. Jose Mourinho would warrant a response from his players after a tacit defeat at home to Liverpool.
Harry Kane’s injury could see Son Heung-Min shoulder more responsibility like before and that has turned out well for Tottenham previously.
1. Tottenham to win @ 2.25
1. Son Heung-Min to score 2 or more @ 8.00
Best of the Rest
Newcastle seem to be in total free fall and Everton should be able to make quick work of them at Goodison Park on Saturday. Leeds have entertaining games, regardless of their recent form, and their meeting with Leicester at King Power should also be a good one for the neutrals.
