Premier League fixtures predicted by stats geeks: Liverpool vs Leicester, Man Utd disaster | Football | Sport


Liverpool take on Leicester at Anfield while Manchester United travel to Newcastle to take on Steve Bruce’s Magpies.

Jurgen Klopp’s men are expected to have a tough encounter against Brendan Rodgers’ high-flying Foxes, who are set to end the host’s perfect start to the Premier League season.

According to The Script, an experiment completed by BT Sport before the start of the season, a 0-0 draw is set to bore fans on Merseyside on Saturday, with the same scoreline due to take place the following day with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men.

The stats have also guessed what will happen in the other 1- fixtures that are taking place this weekend, with good results for both Tottenham and Chelsea.

Spurs are set to win 4-0 away to Brighton in the early game, which would be the perfect recovery from the 7-2 defeat at home to Bayern Munich in Tuesday.

Frank Lampard’s Chelsea have been tipped to beat Southampton 3-0 at St Mary’s on Sunday, with Arsenal also securing a three points.

Unai Emery’s side are due to beat Bournemouth 3-0 at the Emirates after their Europa League triumph in midweek, as they look to cement their place in the top four.

There are further wins for Norwich and Manchester City over Aston Villa and Wolves respectively, with draws between Burnley and Everton and West Ham and Crystal Palace.

Despite their immaculate start to the new season, Danny Murphy thinks that Klopp will have one concern over his Liverpool side before their test against Leicester.

He told Sportingbet: “Liverpool have started the season brilliantly and I think they’ll go one better and win the Premier League.

“They obviously came so close last season, but they’ve not dwelled on that at all and it’s made them even more hungry to secure it this time round.

“However, Liverpool’s performances have not been as dominating this season, even when they get the results.

“This will be a concern for Jurgen Klopp as they’ve relied upon their firepower and creativity up front and the team’s overall determination, to cover up for other mistakes.

“In the last three games, Liverpool have conceded more chances than they would have liked and teams making their way through Liverpool’s defence is likely a major concern for Klopp after having the best defence in the Premier League last season.

“The next two games against Leicester and Manchester United will be a big test for this Liverpool team.

“I fully expect Liverpool’s performances to improve throughout the season.”
