Tammy Abraham tops: With the international fixtures now upon us, the last thing any club wanted was to go into a break without a victory to their name.
Tammy Abraham scores again to go to the top of the scoring charts in the Premier League, both Manchester teams were also beaten plus Messi finally scores his first goal of the season.
But first Tammy who…
Tammy scores again for Chelsea – Influence rating 4/5
Having been out on loan the past 3 seasons to various lower league teams, you can be forgiven if you didn’t know much about Tammy Abraham at the start of the season.
8 games in the Premier League this season and 8 goals – have Chelsea finally found a ‘proper’ replacement for Didier Drogba?
Currently sat at the top of the scoring charts and a call up to the England squad for the first time, Abraham is in the form of his life.
Here at Betarena we’re backing Tammy Abraham to open his international scoring tally for England with a goal against the Czech Republic in their European Qualifier fixture.
Man City shocked at home – Influence rating 3/5
Following the highs of last season, Pep Guardiola’s men have failed to reach anywhere near the standard they previously set themselves.
The alarm bells were already starting to ring with a defeat already in the season, but a home defeat to Wolves at the weekend proved the biggest shock of the season.
Liverpool has maintained their 100% winning record and has opened up an 8 point gap over City.
With the highest odds guaranteed at 22bet, we’re backing Man City to prove their first loss at home was only a minor blip and come back strong in their next game away at Crystal Palace.
Another defeat for United on the road – Influence rating 3/5
When Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over the reins at Man Utd full time, they had just beaten PSG in stunning fashion to make it 11 games undefeated on the road – since that game, they have played 9 games away from home and haven’t managed a victory.
United now find themselves in the bottom half and only 2 points away from the relegation zone with their next fixture at home to their biggest rivals and current table toppers, Liverpool.
A game which could be exactly what Man Utd need with recent history also being on their side as Liverpool haven’t claimed a victory at Old Trafford for 10 years.
At Betarena, we’re predicting Man Utd to find a performance not to lose against their bitter rivals and come away from the game with at least a point.
Messi scores his first of the season – Influence rating 5/5
Having missed a few games of the season through injury, Lionel Messi has finally opened his tally for the season with a stunning free-kick.
In each of his last 3 seasons, Messi has scored over 30 goals in the league and if he stays injury-free, here at Betarena we see no reason why he won’t get to the mark again this season.
With 22bet you can back Lionel Messi to make it 2 goals in 2 when Barcelona take on Eibar in their next fixture.
Juve leave it late to defeat Inter – Influence rating 4/5
Following a 100% winning record coming into this fixture, Inter faced their toughest challenge to date and welcomed the previous 5 years league winners, Juventus to the San Siro.
Juventus came into the game slightly under the radar due to Inter’s record, however, they themselves had won 5 of their 6 opening fixtures.
The game was always expected to be a tight fixture, given their rivalry and league positions. With the game deadlocked at 1-1, Juventus brought on Higuain to make an impact and in the 80th minute, he made an emphatic one, scoring the decisive goal to give Juventus all 3 points.
Juventus next home fixture is at home to Bologna who they have beaten in their last 7 head to head fixtures. At 22bet, with the highest odds guaranteed, we’re backing Juventus to continue their unbeaten record against them and take all 3 points.
