Premier League predictions: Jones Knows thinks City will win Manchester derby | Football News

Jones Knows is again with Premier League predictions for Sunday’s video games…

Manchester City vs Manchester United, Sunday 2pm, continue to exist Sky Sports – PLAY SUPER 6 HERE!

Manchester United are tough and tumble now and tough to attain in opposition to. Will that be sufficient to forestall Erling Haaland? Perhaps.

The fit costs glance about correct to me even though, with City sizzling favourites at 1/3 with Sky Bet. There is not any pastime from me in that regard however a unique new marketplace introduced by means of Sky Bet revolving round participant fouls has were given my punting enthusiasm ranges sparking.

Since the 4-0 drubbing at Brentford, no group has averaged extra fouls per-90 mins than Manchester United (13.5) as Erik ten Hag has resorted to, for now, a no-thrills, reasonably direct taste with the backdrop of aggression and in-your-face protecting. It’s almost certainly good control as one thing needed to trade stylistically.

United will must ruffle the feathers of City’s gamers to face a possibility on this one and if Jack Grealish will get decided on down the left, then United’s right-back Diogo Dalot’s foul depend is value a dabble with Sky Bet. Grealish nonetheless actively is going on the lookout for fouls – no longer reasonably up to his Aston Villa days however his moderate of successful 2.62 fouls per-90 mins in a City blouse remains to be a wholesome quantity. Dalot has made no less than two fouls in 4 of his remaining 5 Premier League begins for United and will be willing to shutdown Grealish at each and every alternative. He’s 8/11 with Sky Bet to make two or extra fouls within the fit and 9/4 to make 3 or extra. Both are overpriced.


Leeds vs Aston Villa, Sunday 4.30pm, continue to exist Sky Sports – PLAY SUPER 6 HERE!

To win a sport of soccer clear of house within the Premier League in case you are outdoor the ‘large six’ takes numerous doing. It’s a large fulfillment. Yes, the pattern measurement is small however away groups have gained simply 23 according to cent in their video games this season which is a large drop to the typical away win proportion of round 35 according to cent during the last 5 seasons.

Teams that typically succeed in away wins are in assured temper and are happy with the construction and techniques in their means. That’s why I’m scratching my head at how quick Aston Villa are to win at Leeds. Steven Gerrard’s group are 2/1 with Sky Bet for victory regardless of successful simply as soon as of their remaining 8 away Premier League fits – a stinking run sponsored up by means of some very being worried attacking metrics.

Only Bournemouth have a decrease anticipated objectives tally this season than Villa (6.07) as Gerrard nonetheless has but to stumble throughout a components that will get the most productive out of his attacking gamers. With Lucas Digne and Boubacar Kamara now additionally unavailable for variety because of damage, Gerrard’s hand is additional weakened this weekend. I might be gobsmacked in the event that they left Elland Road with 3 issues and at 4/11 with Sky Bet, Leeds to win or draw this fit is an odds-on winner in ready if tackling quick costs is your factor.

Leicester vs Nottingham Forest, Monday 8pm, continue to exist Sky Sports

Leicester have shipped 22 objectives already this season. That is a few fulfillment.

It’s probably the most conceded by means of any membership of their opening seven video games of any Premier League season. In reality, you must return 57 years for the remaining time a best department group conceded 22 objectives of their first seven video games (West Ham in 65-66 – they usually nonetheless controlled to win the World Cup that season?).

Yet, consistent with the defensive efficiency knowledge metrics, by hook or by crook Nottingham Forest are appearing worse than the Foxes on the again as their anticipated objectives in opposition to tally of 12.97 is the worst within the Premier League.

So, in opposition to this type of leaky defence, James Maddison will have to be at the leading edge of punting minds for this come upon. Maddison has 11 objective involvements in his remaining 10 Premier League appearances since May 11 – most effective Harry Kane, Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne have produced a heftier output. Of the ones 11 involvements, seven had been objectives, figuring out him as Leicester’s most deadly attacking weapon.

The markets have not in reality stuck totally up with that reality but and are permitting him to move off reasonably chunkier than what can be anticipated. Here, you’ll be able to get 6/1 with Sky Bet on him scoring the primary objective or 15/8 on him scoring at anytime.
