Nigeria players in Premier League on Matchday 9

There will be plenty of entertaining games in the Premier League this weekend. Alex Iwobi’s Everton aim to put an end to their four-game winless run in the English top-flight, whereas Wilfried Ndidi’s Leicester City are eager to regain their spot in top four in the Premier League standings. However, when it comes to Matchday 9, all eyes will surely be on Old Trafford as Manchester United take on Liverpool in the Premier League derby.

Will Everton return to winning ways on EPL Matchday 9?

Dip in form in the Premier League

Everton chiefs did remarkably well to reinforce the squad in the summer transfer window, but the new signings have yet to start paying off. The Toffees do not seem to be on top of their game ahead of Saturday’s clash against West Ham United, with the team suffering a loss in each of their previous four league fixtures. Marco Silva’s charges are determined to get back on course and seeing that West Ham United are not regarded as good travelers, home win should be considered.

You should bear in mind that Everton are 9/10 at LionsBet to pick up all three points from the Goodison Park clash. Super Eagles midfielder Alex Iwobi has netted only one goal in the English elite division so far this season, but the game against the Hammers could be the turning point for the Nigeria international.

Unlucky defeat to Liverpool on EPL Matchday 8

Despite producing a fine performance against Liverpool at Anfield, Leicester City eventually suffered an unlucky loss in their last league fixture. The Reds scored the winner from the penalty spot in the dying seconds of the match, putting an end to the Foxes’ three-game winning run in all competitions.

Nigeria midfielder Wilfried Ndidi has established himself as a first-team regular at Leicester City and he is likely to play an important role in Brendan Rodgers’ team in Saturday’s game against Burnley. The Foxes have been impressive at their King Power Stadium so far this term and it is no wonder their victory is priced only 1/2 at Betfair. Leicester City are eyeing their fourth consecutive win in the Premier League.

Success remains in the recovery room

Nigerian attacker Isaac Success has not been on the pitch since August 31, 2019 when his Watford played out a 1-1 draw with Newcastle United at St. James’ Park. The 23-year-old is sidelined with a serious groin injury and he will not be returning anytime soon. Since fellow striker Troy Deeney is out of contention with injury as well, former Manchester United man Danny Welbeck will lead the line for the Hornets against Tottenham on EPL Matchday 9.

The Vicarage Road outfit are still eyeing their first win of the season, but they face an uphill task in Saturday’s clash against Harry Kane and Co. Spurs are more of a team than Watford and we believe that there is a big value in betting on Mauro Pochettino’s men, who are eager to return to winning ways in the English top flight. Tottenham are 2/5 at bet365 to win the match.

All eyes on Old Trafford on Premier League day 9

There will be fireworks when Manchester United and Liverpool face each other at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon. The Red Devils head into the match with a severely-weekend squad and, as a result, the league leaders are seen as favourites to win the Premier League derby. The Reds are eager to win their first domestic trophy since 1990 and we are positive that they will go all guns blazing at Man Utd in the “Theatre of Dreams” showdown. The good news for Liverpool fans is that both first-choice goalkeeper Alisson and key player Mohamed Salah are likely to recover in time to face the Reds. Liverpool are just 3/4 at 1XBET to win the derby.

Our Premier League Matchday 9 Betting Tips

Bournemouth at 4/5

Over the years Bournemouth have turned their Vitality Stadium into a real fortress. The Cherries have yet to find their best form in the 2019/2020 Premier League season, but they are definitely capable of beating struggling Norwich City at home ground. The Canaries are on a three-game losing run in the English top flight, with the team suffering a heavy 5-1 home loss to Aston Villa on day 8. Key attacker Pukki has been struggling to find his goal-scoring touch in the Premier League of late and that is probably the main reason why home win should be considered.

Manchester City/Manchester City at 5/7

The situation in Manchester City’s dressing room is alarming ahead of the trip to London. The Citizens face Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park following a shocking 2-0 loss to Wolverhampton at their Etihad Stadium and seeing that they are eight points behind league leaders Liverpool in the Premier League standings, this has to go down as a must-win game for the title holders. Pep Guardiola’s troops are likely to leave their hearts on the field against the Eagles and we are positive that they are going to get back on course on Matchday 9.
