EPL Matchweek 14
EPL 2023/24 Matchweek 14

We are over a third of the way through the 2023/24 Premier League season. Arsenal are top of the table with Manchester City, Liverpool, and even Aston Villa right on their tales. At the other end of the table, Everton’s 10-point deduction makes them favourites to go down alongside Burnley and Sheffield United.  
Keep reading to see what we think is in store for these teams and more in week’s fixtures. We have EPL Matchweek 14 betting tips and predictions for every match. 

Matchweek 14 Fixtures

Arsenal vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers

Emirates Stadium, 1:00 AM, Sunday, December 3

Wolves lost 3-2 to Fulham last week in yet another one of their matches that was plagued by poor refereeing decisions going against them. Arsenal survived an Aaron Ramsdale mistake at Brentford and came away with all three points thanks to an 89th minute goal from Kai Havertz. The Gunners now sit top of the Premier League table, one point above Man City.  
Gary O'Neil’s men are exceeding expectations. Above all, they have shown the ability to cause problems against big sides. 2-1 wins against Man City and Tottenham are proof of that.  
Playing at Wolves could be another tricky fixture for Arsenal, especially coming off a midweek Champions League match against Lens. However, we think the Gunners will get the job done at home and get all three points, but this will not be a high scoring match.

Brentford vs. Luton Town

Gtech Community Stadium, 1:00 AM, Sunday, December 3

Luton Town got their first ever Premier League win at home against Crystal Palace. Brentford, meanwhile, suffered defeat at home against Arsenal.  
Like we expect from Brentford, they were very solid against a bigger side and nearly came away with a point. They will be playing at home again versus Luton, who are much worse than Arsenal, so we should see a more open Brentford team on Sunday night. Unlike a lot of defensively-minded teams, Thomas Frank’s Brentford do not struggle when asked to be the aggressor against smaller teams.  
Frank has designed his team to be brutally effective in two formations. Against big sides, they play with a solid three at the back system. Against smaller teams, they use a traditional 4-3-3 to get an extra attacker up the pitch. Brentford have put three goals past Burnley, Fulham, and West Ham this season using this 4-3-3 system. 
We cannot see the Bees having any trouble against Luton in this match. This should be at least a two-goal victory for Brentford.

Burnley vs. Sheffield United

Turf Moor, 1:00 AM, Sunday, December 3  

It is not often that the betting sites have Burnley as favourites in a match. Then again, Vincent Kompany’s men do not play Sheffield United every week.  
The Blades and the Clarets are by far the worst teams in the Premier League this year. Burnley have a -22 goal differential. Sheffield United’s sits at -23. No other Premier League club has a goal differential worse than -14.  
Given that these teams are so bad, it is really hard to pick between them. We think the soccer betting sites have gone with Burnley because they are playing at home and because they play pretty football. This is sound logic, but we also see Burnley struggle to break down Paul Heckingbottom’s team who are surely going to set up shop and try to play on the counter.  
This will probably be a low-scoring draw, but we cannot shake the idea of Sheffield United coming away with a scrappy win. Double chance is a good bet for this match.

Nottingham Forest vs. Everton

The City Ground, 3:30 AM, Sunday, December 3

Nottingham Forest suffered an emotional defeat at home last week against Brighton. Everton also experienced a defeat at home, albeit, the match was much more one sided than Forest’s. This means both teams will be coming into this one looking to set things straight.  
Both Forest and Everton will also have a little extra motivation coming from the outside. Many reports from Nottingham believe that manager Steve Cooper may be out of a job if he does not get a good result against Eevrton. The Toffees, meanwhile, feel they have been wronged by the Premier League and are still riding the wave of fan outrage following news of their 10-point deduction.  
As much as it would mean to Everton to get a result in this match, Forest rarely lose at home. It would be shocking to see them do it twice in a row. Forest should win this one.

Newcastle vs. Manchester United

St. James' Park, 6:00 AM, Sunday, December 3

Manchester United are finally starting to shed their ‘crisis club’ moniker. The Red Devils have lost just one of their last six Premier League matches, and that match was against Manchester City. However, during that stretch, they lost to Galatasaray and Coppenhagen in the Champions League and Newcastle in the EFL Cup. That Newcastle loss was especially disappointing since the Magpies played a rotated squad.  
Many members of Newcastle’s rotated squad in that EFL Cup match will be on display again this weekend. Eddie Howe’s side is in the middle of an injury crisis. Despite this, they easily took down Chelsea 4-1 over the weekend. Common sense says they should be able to handle Manchester United as well. We think not though.  
Newcastle play PSG in the Champions League during the week. Their thin squad will be extremely gassed come this weekend. Manchester United should be favourites for that reason alone. 

Double Chance - Man Utd WIN or DRAW $1.87

Chelsea vs. Brighton and Hove Albion

Stamford Bridge, 12:00 AM, Monday, December 4  

There will be lots of familiar faces for Brighton when they face off against Chelsea, but the bigger story for the Seagulls is who will not be playing. 12 first team players for Brighton will likely not be available for Brighton against Chelsea. Kaoru Mitoma, Pervis Estupiñán, and club captain Lewis Dunk are among the players who will be out.  
Chelsea will be without Reece James, who was sent off last week against Newcastle. Marc Cucurella is also suspended. Overall, the Blues Chelsea are relatively healthy. Chelsea will also have the advantage of not playing during the week. Brighton will have to go to Athens on Thursday for a Europa League fixture against AEK.  
Brighton will be tired and Chelsea should win this match. We are not expecting a big victory though. The Seagulls have a leaky defence, but we just cannot trust Chelsea to score right now.

Liverpool vs. Fulham

Anfield, 12:00 AM, Monday, December 4 

Liverpool and Man City split the points in last week’s top of the table clash. They should have an easier go of things this week against Fulham, who were lucky to get a win last week against Wolves.  
Fulham have won just one of their last five Premier League matches. With that being said, the Cottagers have lost just one of their four matches against Liverpool since 2020. Liverpool beat Fulham by just one goal at home last season.  
However, this year’s Liverpool is much different than the one that squeaked by Fulham last year. With the additions of Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Zzoboszlai in their midfield, Liverpool have an ability to control games in a way they have not had in years. Liverpool should win this match convincingly. 

Liverpool WIN And UNDER 3.5 Goals $2.35

Bournemouth vs. Aston Villa

Vitality Stadium, 12:00 AM, Monday, December 4 

Bournemouth appear to have finally put it all together under new manager Andoni Iraola. The Spaniard has experimented with playing Justin Kluivert more centrally and it is paying dividends. The Dutchman scored in the last match and became the second ever player to score in each of Europe’s top five leagues.  
As good as the Cherries have been under Iraola, Aston Villa and Unai Emery are doing better. The Villains are fourth in the table and now one of the favourites to finish the season in the top four. They use their high line to devastating effect, which makes it hard for teams to counter them.  
Countering is exactly what Bournemouth will be trying to do. Better teams have tried and failed, so we are not too hopeful about the Cherries’ chances. Villa should win this match. 

Aston Villa -1.5 $3.40

Bournemouth: Neto; Smith, Zabarnyi, Senesi, Kerkez; Christie, Cook; Semenyo, Kluivert, Tavernier; Solanke 

Aston Villa: Martinez; Konsa, Carlos, Torres, Digne; Cash, McGinn, Luiz, Tielemans; Diaby, Watkins 

West Ham vs. Crystal Palace

London Stadium, 12:00 AM, Monday, December 4 

We said last week that Crystal Palace win games they should lose, lose games they should win, and always comfortably finish mid-table. Last week was a textbook case of losing a game you should win. This match has the potential to be a textbook match Palace wins that they should lose, if they were not injured at least.  
Roy Hodgson’s side will likely be without their star man Eberechi Eze, but Michael Olise is back and seemingly better than ever. He scored a worldie to keep Palace in the match against Luton Town. West Ham have an in-form player of their own with Mohammed Kudus becoming a more and more important player for the Hammers.  
West Ham are the favourites in this match, and probably should be, but we think this one will finish as a draw. 

Anytime Goal Scorer - Jared Bowen $2.85
West Ham vs. Crystal Palace - DRAW$3.40

West Ham: Areola; Coufal, Zouma, Aguerd, Emerson; Alvarez, Ward-Prowse; Kudus, Soucek, Paqueta; Bowen 

Crystal Palace: Johnstone; Ward, Andersen, Guehi, Mitchell; Hughes, Lerma; Olise, Ajew, Schlupp; Edouard 

Manchester City vs. Tottenham Hotspur

Etihad Stadium, 2:30 AM, Monday, December 4

Injuries to James Maddison and Micky van de Ven and the suspension of Cristian Romero have seemingly sent Tottenham into freefall. Spurs have lost three consecutive matches. In their last match, the Spurs back four had four fullbacks. These are not the kinds of problems you want when you are about to play Man City away.  
City have drawn their last two Premier League matches and needed all 90 minutes to get past RB Leipzig in the Champions League on Tuesday. With all that being said, Pep Guardiola’s team still looks like their dominant selves. This may be the most defensively-sound Man City side since Vincent Komany suited up for the Cityzens. The added dynamic of Jeremy Doku on the left wing is something new for City too.  
Unless Tottenham decide to abandon the identity Ange Postecoglou has instilled in them all season, Man City should win this match, and probably by multiple goals. 

OVER 3.5 Goals $1.95

Man City: Ederson; Walker, Dias, Ake; Rodri, Akanji, Silva; Foden, Alvarez, Doku; Haaland
