Midweek Premier League Predictions: March 16th

Soccer article at Knup Sports

There’s nothing like mid-week Premier League football, and there are some fantastic matches to watch tomorrow.

Spurs are traveling to Brighton and will look to redeem themselves from a loss at United, and Liverpool will meet Arsenal at the Emirates in hopes of cutting the gap at the top to one point.

Both games have massive implications and tomorrow is a big day in the Premier League title race.

Brighton vs Tottenham

Spurs’ current form is LWLWLWL, so if we’re going by trends, this game against Brighton tomorrow should be a comfortable win.

Although, on the other hand, this form represents unbelievable inconsistency from Antonio Conte’s side and they could struggle against Brighton.

On their day, Brighton are a formidable side, but their form has been even worse than Tottenham’s recently.

Brighton are winless in their last five Premier League games and only managed to score one goal in those matches.

They aren’t facing relegation, but closing out the season like this has to be disappointing given where they were.

Unless we see magic from Leandro Trossard and Tariq Lamptey, I think Spurs will be difficult to top.

Son Heung-min needs to regain form and this is a great chance for him to do so.

Son has been in poor form for Spurs.

Expect Dejan Kulusevski to keep his starting position at right-wing, as he has been nothing but quality for Spurs so far.

These teams met in the FA cup earlier this year, and it ended in a convincing 3-1 win for Spurs, a game that Harry Kane finished with a brace in.

Spurs are stronger now and will attack this game with a real sense of urgency.

Match Prediction

Brighton 1-2 Tottenham

I expect Harry Kane to get on the scoresheet tomorrow and help Tottenham bounce back from a bad loss against United. Spurs cannot afford to lose this game, and Conte knows that.

Arsenal vs Liverpool

After City’s draw against Crystal Palace on Monday, Liverpool has a chance to close the gap to one point.

This game will have massive implications on the title race and fight for top four.

Arsenal currently sits in 4th with games in hand on every other team in the Premier League, and Liverpool is in 2nd, four points behind Manchester City.

Mikel Arteta’s side has won their last five Premier League games and is arguably the team no one wants to face in the Premier League right now.

Thomas Partey has been key for Arsenal recently.

An in-form attack of Alexandre Lacazette, Gabriel Martinelli, Martin Odegaard, and Bukayo Saka will be a big test for Liverpool’s mighty defense, and they will need to be at their best to keep them at bay.

There is a lot of pressure on Liverpool to capitalize on City’s dropped points tomorrow, but this is a squad that can handle pressure.

I’m expecting Arsenal to keep this game extremely close, but Jurgen Klopp’s men will ultimately prevail.

Predicted Lineups

Arsenal (4-2-3-1)

GK: Aaron Ramsdale

RB: Cedric Soares

CB: Ben White

CB: Gabriel

LB: Kieran Tierney

CDM: Thomas Partey

CDM: Granit Xhaka

RW: Bukayo Saka

CAM: Martin Odegaard

Liverpool (4-3-3)

CB: Joel Matip

CB: Virgil Van Dijk

LB: Andrew Robertson

CM: Jordan Henderson

CM: Fabinho

CM: Naby Keita

LW: Sadio Mane

ST: Diogo Jota

RW: Mohamed Salah

Match Prediction

Arsenal 1-2 Liverpool

Liverpool has done an incredible job at putting their heads down, grinding out games, and closing the gap between them and City at the top of the table. 

Nothing suggests that they will drop points against Arsenal here, a team that we know they are capable of beating.

It’s going to be a cracking match, but expect Liverpool to come out with the win.
