Standout Stats, Streaks & Trends W/E 24th November 2017
Patrick Gillen (@PatrickGillen94) uncovers the Standout Stats, Streaks & Trends ahead of this weekend’s football.
Manchester United v Brighton – Saturday 15:00
Old Trafford is a fortress again under Jose Mourinho as Manchester United have won their last seven home league games and have been unbeaten in 23 (W13 D10). 2011 was the last time United achieved this feat, as Sir Alex Ferguson steered them to 25 home games unbeaten in the Premier League. With Premier League newcomers Brighton visiting on Saturday, this run is expected to continue. United are a brave 8/5 with Coral to win with a -2 handicap.
Tottenham v West Brom – Saturday 15:00
Gary Megson will take charge of a West Brom side that has now gone 10 games without a Premier League win. Baggies fans wouldn’t have believed at the start of the season that Megson would be leading them out at Wembley as manager and his task will be made that much more difficult that their opponents on Saturday are Tottenham. Spurs go into this game on the back of an impressive Champions League win in Dortmund and will be looking to bounce back in the league after defeat in the North London derby. Paddy Power are offering best price 16/1 for correct score Spurs to win 3-0.
Swansea v Bournemouth – Saturday 15:00
Swansea City are the only team in the bottom five of the Premier League not to have sacked their manager and, after four straight defeats, the pressure will be mounting on Swans manager Paul Clement should his side lose at home to Bournemouth. The Cherries boast an impressive record against Swansea and are unbeaten against them in the Premier League, having played four times (W3, D1). Ladbrokes are offering best price 17/10 for Bournemouth to take home the three points.
Valencia v Barcelona – Sunday 19:45
La Liga’s first and second placed sides face a showdown at the Mestalla on Sunday evening, with hosts Valencia sitting only four points behind league leaders Barcelona. Valencia have won their last eight games and, like Barcelona, are unbeaten. Something has to give on Sunday and under coach Marcelino, Los Che have a young side that shows no signs of fear against an away side which will be missing both Gerard Pique and Javier Mascherano. Betfair are offering Valencia to win with draw no bet at 9/4.
