EPL – Matchweek 11 in Review

Matchweek 11 of the 2022-23 EPL season saw Liverpool shake up the title race, as a tension-filled win over Man City sent Arsenal four points clear.

Here’s how it looked for punters: 

Reds inflict first loss on Sky Blues

The build-up could not have been bigger, and Liverpool vs Manchester City delivered yet again. Some had predicted a high-scoring affair given City’s machine-like performances to date this EPL season and Liverpool’s conversely poor defensive record, but in the end the ball hit the back of the net just once, delivering $6.00 for those who backed Under 1.5 goals. That only goal was delivered by Mo Salah ($7.50 first goalscorer with Palmerbet) after his mid-week UCL hat-trick.

Unsurprisingly there was action off the pitch too, with both technical areas the focal point again as Reds manager Jurgen Klopp was sent to the stands. But at the final whistle, Klopp (whose side start $3.75 outsiders) knew he had finally had an impact on the title race in 2022-23. City’s first loss of the season (after starting $1.83 favourites) is arguably what was needed to make this EPL season’s race more interesting. And it gave a huge leg-up to one other club.

Gunners go four points clear

There wasn’t just one spicy, action-filled 1-0 EPL encounter in the north of England on Sunday. Further north of Liverpool in Yorkshire, Leeds ($5.20 outsiders) came agonisingly close to sharing the points with Arsenal on numerous occasions. But they eventually went down 1-0 at Elland Road to a fighting Arsenal side ($1.64). Bukayo Saka ($6.50 first goalscorer) slotted home the only goal of the afternoon. The result, followed by City’s defeat at Anfield, spelled the perfect afternoon for Gunners manager Mikel Arteta. Four points clear at the top of the EPL table, Arsenal saw their title price come in again. $34 at the start of the season, the Gunners are now into $6 with Palmerbet. City remain solid favourites at $1.30.

Spurs seal best start since ‘63

With Arsenal’s bright start, City’s machine-like performances and Liverpool’s drop-off (albeit tempered by the win on Sunday), Tottenham are a side that have slid under the radar thus far in season 2022-23. But not anymore. A comfortable 2-0 over Everton on the weekend (after starting $1.44 favourites) has Antonio Conte’s side right in amongst things at the top of the EPL table. Captain Harry Kane scored in his 400th game ($1.83 anytime goalscorer with Palmerbet) before fan favourite Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg ($7.50) finished things off as the North London side put a huge gap between themselves in third and Chelsea in fourth. With 23 points after 10 games, Spurs have secured their best start to a season in 59 years. So how far can they go? Top 4 looks a very achievable goal for Antonio Conte, who is favoured to return Spurs to Champions League football next season.
