Arsenal V Crystal Palace

Arsenal’s win streak ended after stalemate with Crystal Palace - RESULT: 0 - 0

Arsenal’s three-game win streak ended, following a goalless draw with London rivals Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium on Thursday night.

 

The Eagles were the closest to getting a goal, as James Tomkins’ header from Eberechi Eze’s freekick hit the woodwork. Christian Benteke also forced a save from the Gunners’ goalie Bernd Leno. Arsenal did not get a clear cut chance in the entire 90 minutes.

 

 

Arsenal dominated possession in the game but did not create enough chances to win the games, and they missed the chance to go higher on the table with the draw, while Crystal Palace moved above Wolves from 14 to 13.

 

Do you think Arsenal’s form is over?

Liverpool V Man Utd

Liverpool v Manchester United 17/01/2021 17:30
MY11 SAY 2-2 DRAW

The two biggest teams in the Premier League will face off in the top of the table clash as Liverpool will be welcoming Manchester United to the Anfield Stadium on Super Sunday.

 

In 56 Premier League meetings between these two teams, Liverpool have won 15 games, while Manchester United have won 28 matches, with 13 games ending in a draw. The Red Devils have defeated the Kops just once in their last 5 clashes, with 2 games ending in draws.

 

Liverpool will be without Diogo Jota, Konstantinos Tsimikas, Joe Gomez, and Virgil Van Dijk due to injury, while Joel Matip and Naby Keita are major doubts for the clash. Manchester United, on the other hand, will be without Phil Jones due to injury, while Anthony Martial, Nemanja Matic, Victor Lindelof, and Marcos Rojo are major doubts for this clash.

 

Manchester United are top of the table for the first time since 2013 and Liverpool are on a great run at Anfield and a win will take them above the Red Devils. This clash looks like a close encounter that could end in a draw or a narrow win for the Kops

Inter Milan V Juventus

Inter Milan v Juventus 17/01/2021 20:45
MY11 SAY 2-2 DRAW

The biggest rivalry in Italian football takes center stage as Inter Milan will be welcoming defending champions Juventus to the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza in the Derby d'Italia on Super Sunday.

 

In the last 26 Serie A meetings between these two teams, Inter have won 4 games, while Juventus have won 14 matches, with the other 8 games ending in a draw. The Nerazzurri have defeated the Old Lady just once in their last 8 encounters, losing 2 of their last 3 at home.

 

Inter Milan will be without Stefano Sensi, Matteo Darmian, Danilo D'Ambrosio, Andrea Pinamonti, and Matias Vecino due to injury. Juventus, on the other hand, will be without Federico Chiesa, Weston McKennie, and Paulo Dybala due to injury, while Matthijs de Ligt, Juan Cuadrado, and Alex Sandro will miss out due to positive COVID-19 test.

 

Inter are on a good run of form and are 3 points away from local rivals AC Milan at the top. Juventus, on the other hand, have been inconsistent this season, but with a Cristiano Ronaldo chasing a record as the most prolific goal scorer of all time, it will be difficult for the Nerazzurri to beat the Old Lady. This will be a close call that should end in a draw.

Ronaldo sets new record and equals Bican’s feat on the same night

Five-time Ballon d’Or winner, Cristiano Ronaldo has set a new goal record, after scoring his 15th league goal of the season, and in doing so, he has equalled Bican’s all-time record as the most prolific goal scorer of all time.

 

Juventus defeated Sassuolo 3-1 at the Allianz Stadium on Sunday night, and Ronaldo scored the third goal of the match in the 92nd minute to ensure the Turin giants won all 3 points.’

 

 

The goal was Ronaldo's 15th Serie A goal of the season in 13 games, and with that, he has become the only player to score at least 15 league goals in 15 consecutive seasons in Europe's top 5 leagues.

 

The 35-year-old Portuguese also equalled Josef Bican’s goal tally of 759 official goals, to become the most prolific goal scorer in the history of football, and the Juventus forward needs just one more goal to stand alone.
