Premier League Matchday 8 Preview: Tottenham & Chelsea Eyeing Road Wins

The Premier League season rolls on this weekend, with the eighth round of matches featuring some hugely enticing contests.

The clash between Arsenal and Manchester City on Sunday is the standout game and could have a major impact on this season’s title race.

Read on as we take a look at the standout games on Matchday 8 and assess some of the key betting angles to consider.


  • London duo can shine on the road.
  • Villa top six odds still tempting.
  • Goals on the cards at the Emirates Stadium.

Tottenham & Chelsea Fancied to Shine on the Road

Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea are on the road against newly-promoted teams on Saturday and both look good bets to pick up three points.

Spurs should have little problem defeating Luton Town in the early kick-off, while Chelsea are fancied to triumph at Burnley later the same day.

The double pays almost 6/4 on several leading football betting sites – odds which will undoubtedly tempt savvy punters this weekend.

Villa Top Six Bid Gathering Pace

We highlighted Aston Villa’s odds of 3/1 to finish in the top six on new betting sites before the season started and they are on track to deliver a winning return.

Villa are fifth in the standings heading into their game at Wolverhampton Wanderers and will fancy their chances of continuing their excellent recent form.

The Midlands outfit are a best priced 13/8 to secure a top six spot this term and that still looks good value given their performances under manager Unai Emery.

Arsenal & Man City Eager to Boost Title Hopes

Man City’s surprise defeat at Wolves last weekend allowed the chasing pack to narrow the gap at the top of the table to just one point.

They will be eager to bounce back at Arsenal on Sunday, but will not find things easy against a team with title pretensions of their own.

Both league matches between the two teams had over 3.5 goals last season, and odds of 11/5 on UK betting apps for a repeat this weekend are a tempting proposition.
