Top EPL Teams That Are Likely To Drop Points This Weekend

Football has become a lot more unpredictable in recent times and especially in the EPL. Last week, top teams like Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool all dropped points and the upcoming fixtures can easily mirror what happened last time.

Possible EPL Upsets

Of all the top EPL teams that play this weekend, there are some that are taking part in 'tricky' games in which upsets are very possible. This especially applies in the EPL because the smaller teams are notoriously good at upsetting the top sides.

Here is an analysis of some underdogs that are set to stun some of the EPL 'big six' this weekend:

Southampton Against Chelsea

This has been the best time to be a Chelsea opponent so far this season. After looking unstoppable in the first few games of the season, Chelsea have began to show some form of weakness and have lost their last two games in all competitions.

As for Southampton, they have made a habit as the 'Robinhood' in the EPL this season because they have taken points from two 'big 6' teams already. They drew with a score of 1:1 with Manchester United and 0:0 with Manchester City.

Chelsea is the next big team on their radar and it would be foolish to write them off.

Aston Villa Against Tottenham

Spurs' recent form has been very surprising especially after their brilliant start to the season. After winning their first 3 league games, Tottenham lost the next 3 games and in the process they were demolished by Crystal Palace, Chelsea and Arsenal consecutively.

On the other hand, Aston villa are currently having the time of their lives as they dominated Manchester United last week and they will enter into the Tottenham game this weekend with confidence. It can be said that Aston Villa are actually the favorites to come out on top against Spurs.

Everton Against Manchester United

Manchester United are currently having a very wild season stacked with 'ups and downs'. Overall, they have found it hard to get any form of consistency and this might make them pay against Everton.

Everton have also failed to be consistent but their recent form has been impressive. They have won 3 of their last 4 EPL matches.

They will definitely be looking to take advantage of the current crisis at Manchester United and the match could easily go either way.

Manchester City Against Liverpool

This is obviously the 'game of the weekend' and the stakes are high because the result will definitely affect the top spot of the EPL table.

With Liverpool at top spot and Manchester City one point below, none of these teams will go for anything other than a win.

History is in favour of Manchester City because Liverpool have only managed to win one of their last six meetings while City have won three and drawn two.

Manchester City are just coming from a frustrating loss to PSG in the UEFA Champions league while Liverpool won their UCL match comfortably. This match is highly unpredictable and the neutrals are bound to enjoy it the most.
