Premier League Matchday 27 – Title contenders hit the road

With a third of the season remaining, we are down to a two-way fight for the Premier League title between Arsenal and Manchester City.

Liverpool’s 7-0 demolition of Manchester United at Anfield last weekend pretty much ended the latter’s faint hopes of sneaking into contention.

The stunning result flew in the face of the pre-game odds, with the bookmakers unable to split the two teams in the run-up to the game.

Many punters backed in-form United to win the game but were left licking their wounds after Jurgen Klopp’s side ran riot on their own patch.

With blackjack, poker, roulette and baccarat all available at Platin live casino Ireland, the entertaining live tables will be a welcome distraction before the Premier League takes centre stage again.

Manchester City head into the weekend five points behind the Gunners and will fancy their chances of defeating a team that has not won a league game in 2023.

Pep Guardiola’s side had little difficulty defeating Newcastle United last weekend and look a good bet to pick up another three points at Selhurst Park.

Arsenal are also on the road the following day as they make the short trip across London to face Fulham at Craven Cottage.

The Gunners got out of jail last weekend, recovering from a two-goal deficit to beat struggling Bournemouth 3-2 courtesy of Reiss Nelson’s last minute winner.

They have not been defeated by Fulham in their last nine league meetings but would do well not to underestimate the threat posed by their London rivals.

The Cottagers are much improved under manager Marco Silva and will be keen to boost their chances of qualifying for Europe at the end of the season.

Manchester United will bid to bounce back from their mauling at Liverpool when they welcome Southampton to Old Trafford on Sunday.

The Red Devils were in excellent form prior to last weekend and should have too much class for a Saints team that is stuck in the relegation zone.

Other notable fixtures involving teams at the wrong end of the table include Everton vs Brentford, Leeds United vs Brighton & Hove Albion and Leicester City vs Chelsea.
