The emotions of the 2022/23 season of the English Premier League continue, and we have reached a thrilling matchday 23, where each team will play for the three points as if they were a final due to the tightness of the standings.
The Gunners continue to lead the table despite unexpectedly losing their last game, as the Citizens did not take advantage of the situation to get closer and still have a five-point cushion. On the other hand, Manchester United, Newcastle, and Tottenham continue to add points and get dangerously close to the top of the table.
While Chelsea and Liverpool continue to sink deeper and deeper, and their fateful season continues.
They have different squads, different situations in the table, and different levels of play, but the common goal is to get back to winning ways to continue the fight for their goals this season.

Why Bet on Manchester City?
After the news a few days ago about a possible ruling against Manchester City due to not complying with the Financial Fair Play in the Premier League for nine consecutive seasons, we have to see how this affects Pep Guardiola and his boys.
Despite the aforementioned, Manchester City still has to keep thinking about their season, as they cannot falter in their attempt to catch Arsenal at the top.
They are currently in second place in the Premier League standings, with a record of 14 wins, three draws, and four defeats, to sit five points behind Arsenal and only 2 points ahead of a resurgent Manchester United, who are not taking their foot off the gas.
There is no doubt that Manchester City had a golden opportunity to catch up with Arsenal the day before, but their curse at Tottenham’s home stings and extends. The team does not feel comfortable in that stadium, so their five visits to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium have been defeats.
Why Bet on Aston Villa?
On the other hand, Aston Villa comes into this matchday having seen its streak of consecutive matches without defeat cut to 4. Thanks to this, the team climbed to the 11th position in the table and moved to just one point behind Chelsea and two points behind Liverpool.
With the overall standings so tight, three points can help teams climb several positions in a single matchday.
So far this season, Aston Villa has had many offensive problems, which is why the team is not better placed in the table. In 21 games played, they scored 25 goals and conceded 31, another statistic that has not favored them this season.
Aston Villa has a record of eight wins, four draws, and nine defeats, with 28 points out of 63 played.
