Liverpool’s Anfield Dominance Shattered, Klopp Seeks Answers After Shock Crystal Palace Defeat

Jurgen Klopp was left frustrated after his team’s abysmal show at home against Crystal Palace, admitting that the heavy defeat against Atalanta in the Europa League last Thursday impacted his side’s performance in the league.

Liverpool hasn’t lost a league game at Anfield since October 2022, and though they fell to defeat in midweek in the Europa League, everyone expected a reaction from Jürgen Klopp and his players.

A win over Crystal Palace would’ve taken them to the top of the Premier League. It was a shocking defeat because Liverpool missed some crazy sitters recording 21 goal attempts, six shots on target, and 2.97 xG. If you’re betting online you should continue to back them because the Reds will definitely have an answer this week.

 

Emery’s Villa Prove Thorn in Arsenal’s Side, Denting Gunners’ Title Hopes at Emirates

Arsenal was well-beaten by Aston Villa at Emirates Stadium, leaving the club’s title hopes hanging by a thread.

Villa and Emery have been a thorn in Arteta’s side, winning five of the nine meetings between the two since Arteta took over.

Ollie Watkins has five goals in those nine games and continues to break plenty of records as a Villa player. If you love soccer player props, Watkins will bring you profit if you start backing him for goals.

Heading into this game, Emery’s men had won just one of their last five in the Premier League while Arsenal has been ruthless, winning 10 of their last 11 in the English top flight. They’d only failed to beat Manchester City during this run. Arsenal is now two points off leaders Manchester City while Villa has a three-point advantage over Tottenham.

 

 

Shaky Van de Ven and Ineffective Spurs No Match for Inspired Isak and Newcastle

It was a fixture that promised goals as the previous five games between the two sides produced 26 goals, and it certainly delivered. Man of the match Alexander Isak was a constant threat and could have gotten more than the two he scored on any other day.

Micky van de Ven had a game to forget in an uncharacteristically shaky performance from the Dutchman who has arguably been one of the standout central defenders in the league this year.

Ange Postecoglou’s men had been inconsistent over recent weeks but seven points from three games had given them control in the race for a top-four finish. Nobody thought Newcastle would be so rampant, not when a win over Eddie Howe’s side would’ve given them complete control of the final Champions League spot with just a handful of games remaining.

 

Man United’s Resurgence Fizzles as Bournemouth Hold Them to Frustrating Draw

Last weekend, Manchester United rallied against Liverpool to claim a point. They looked like a completely different team in that second half and many wondered whether this might be a sign of things to come for the Red Devils.

It was just another false dawn though. United could only take a point back to Old Trafford on Saturday following their match against Bournemouth. In truth, they probably didn’t even deserve that.

Next, they will host bottom-placed Sheffield United, where they’ll surely be listed as favorites by our soccer odds.
