Nothing seems to be able to stop the march of Guardiola's Manchester City, steamroller without pauses. Nottingham are in a good position but the prediction is obvious. The citizens can also increase the +2 as there is the expected derby between Arsenal and Tottenham, healthy teams. Arsenal won with PSV, Tottenham opposes the 'Serie A brigade' (Vicario, Romero, Udogie, Kulusevski). The Gunners have won 4 of their last 5 derbies. Liverpool, orphaned by the Champions League, have an uncomfortable round against West Ham while De Zerbi's Brighton, who face Bournemouth, can further advance.
Repair round for three clubs in embassy: Tonali's Newcastle has an easy commitment in Sheffield, as does Ten Hag's Man United (who risked the goal in Monaco, thanks to Onana) who play at Burnley. Chelsea's decline seems irreversible despite the crazy figures spent in recent markets. It is 14th with the fourth-last attack and hosts a fierce team like Aston Villa in which Zaniolo is inserting. A further thud could cost Pochettino dearly.
Saturday: 16 Man City-Nottingham; 21st Burnley-Man United.
Sunday 24: 15 Arsenal-Tottenham, Brighton-Bournemouth; Chelsea v Aston Villa, Liverpool v West Ham, 17.30 Sheffield v Newcastle.
