We always knew the 2020/21 season was going to be like no other played before. Currently, no fans are allowed inside any Premier League stadium to watch any game. Many TV channels have resorted to pumping in fake crowd noises using the same technology as the FIFA console games to try and create an atmosphere. With the surprises being caused this season, there are some games that many fans will have been glad not to be at the stadium to witness. It seems the short break between seasons, the busy schedule and training restrictions have all resulted in some surprising performances in the league. A surprise win or defeat is always bad news for the bookmakers, so can be great news for you. Here are a few examples of why the Premier League may be the league to bet on this season, though nothing is a dead cert.
Aston Villa 7-2 Liverpool
Last year Liverpool had a near-perfect season. They ended their run with 99 points from a possible 114. They won the league with more games to go than any other team has achieved in recent years. So how did the then-dominant Liverpool end up losing 7-2 to the middle-of-the-table Aston Villa? Nobody would have predicted that. In fact, it was the first time the current title holders had let 7 goals in since the early 60s.
Manchester United 1-6 Tottenham Hotspur
Back in the days when Sir Alex Ferguson was their manager, there were very few games where the bookmakers would predict anything other than a win for Manchester United. Although that form has changed since his departure, very few would have predicted that they would have conceded six at the famous Old Trafford stadium. In their third game of the season, the unthinkable happened as Spurs thrashed the Red Devils.
The game fell on the same evening as the incredible 7-2 victory for Aston Villa. Anybody who had the ability to predict both Liverpool and Manchester United would be defeated would have been able to secure a very nice return. If anybody had the guts to bet on either of the score lines, the odds on a number of football betting websites would have netted a very big payout, even from the smallest amount of money put down.
Man City’s whole season so far
Manchester City couldn’t have had a more mixed bag of results so far this season. They unsurprisingly beat Wolves at the start of the season 3-1. Then they were thrashed 5-2 by rivals Leicester City. Then they could only secure a 1-1 draw against newly promoted Leeds United. They’ve secured the full house no team wants. A win, a loss and a draw in their first three games. There’s no telling which of those outcomes they’re likely to see more of this season. Their opening games have put them towards the very bottom of the table, a far cry from the second place they secured last season.
