Premier League Matchday 16 – Preview and Free Picks

Last Updated on November 10, 2022 1:41 pm by Erwin Noguera

The emotions of the 2022-23 Premier League season continue and, we reached the 16th matchday of the championship, where Arsenal continues in a dream season leading the overall standings with 34 points out of a possible 39.

Arsenal has only one concern at the moment, Manchester City, as the team coached by Pep Guardiola is the only team in the English league that has been able to maintain its pace of play, as we have become accustomed to in recent seasons and are in second place in the table with 32 points.

Then, we have the biggest surprise of the Premier League this season, Newcastle, a team that was struggling to stay in the first division of English soccer for several seasons and, in 2022-23, they are in third place in the table, with an excellent sum of 27 points.

The other big teams in the Premier League, Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham, and Manchester United have not yet been able to find the desired pace of play and, although there are still many rounds to play, their chances of fighting for the top places in the table are still far away.

We must highlight the season Brighton is playing and, after two consecutive victories in the last two rounds, they have managed to sneak into sixth place in the overall standings, right in the middle of the 4 big teams of the Premier League mentioned above.

As we all know, this matchday 16 will be the last weekend of matches before the break for the Qatar 2022 World Cup that starts in 10 days, so the teams will try to take advantage of the opportunity to get 3 points and thus, go better placed in the table.

Next, we will have a preview of the best matches you can enjoy in this Premier League matchday 16, with their betting odds and our free predictions.

Manchester City has only one thing in mind, the Premier League leadership, but, this does not depend on them, since, they must wait for the result of the Arsenal match to know if they can go on a break of more than 1 month for the Qatar 2022 World Cup being the leaders of the tournament.

The Citizens do not let up in their pursuit of Arsenal, however, they must play the matches much more concentrated and closer to perfection to avoid making mistakes that could harm them in their quest to be the leaders of the Premier League. 

Manchester City arrives at this matchday after a thrilling game against Fulham, where they were winning without any problems, but the expulsion of João Cancelo and the penalty goal by Andreas Pereira completely complicated the game. It was not until the 90+5′ minute that the Martian, Erling Haaland scored his 18th goal of the season to give his team the victory.

Brentford, for its part, is doing its own thing with the material they have at its disposal. They come into this matchday after a thrilling 2-2 draw against Nottingham, in a game that looked like they had everything to win, but, a Mathias Jorgensen own goal equalized the score in the 90+6′ minute.

With this result, Brentford has their third draw in the last 4 matches played and is placed 14th in the overall standings.

For this match, we do not doubt that Manchester City will win and our prediction is a final score of 3-0.

The demands of the Premier League are so intense that in just a few weeks you go from fighting for the top places in the table to being on the fringes of the European competition. That is why every matchday is so important for the teams that want to be in the next Champions League.

Tottenham have had a very difficult week and are coming off a loss to Liverpool on the previous matchday. This situation puts them one game behind teams like Manchester United, who have not had a good season, to match them in points. However, in the current Champions League, they showed that they can do things well, and they already know that next year they will face AC Milan in the round of 16.

Right now, Tottenham comes with a streak of 3 defeats and 2 wins in their last 5 games, which has catapulted them to fourth place in the table, but with a lot of danger to continue descending in the table if they do not straighten their course as soon as possible.

On the other hand, we have Leeds, a team that has had a good season, as far as it is possible since they have managed to get important results that have them, for now, far from the relegation zone. Leeds is currently ranked #12 in the standings with 15 points out of a possible 39.

We must highlight the fact that Leeds comes to this match after two spectacular victories in the Premier League. The first one against Liverpool at Anfield with a score of 2-1 and the second one against Bournemouth with a score of 4-3. In the latter match, Leeds was down 1-3 and, in a thrilling second half, they turned the score around and took the victory.

For this match, our winner’s chip goes to Tottenham with a score of 1-0.

Tottenham vs. Leeds Betting Pick: Tottenham

One of the best games we will have this matchday 16, not only because of the names of the teams but also because of the current situation of both, being among the best in the league.

The Eddie Howe-coached team is flying. Newcastle has been in simply stunning form at the moment, winning yet again in the previous matchday with an excellent 4-1 result against Southampton. Miguel Almiron and Bruno Guimaraes were on the scoresheet again, making them two of the Premier League’s most in-form players this season.

However, the Newcastle quartet of Kieran Trippier, Callum Wilson, Miguel Almiron, and Joe Willock suffered a mix of illness and injury and could be doubted for this match.

On the other hand, we have Chelsea, a team that, after all the problems they had in the dead season and at the beginning of this 2022-23 Premier League, had managed to get the desired pace of play and had been competing in a great way in the English league, but, in the last few rounds their performance has decreased in such a way that, they come to this match with 2 draws and 2 defeats in their last 4 games.

Chelsea has Reece James, Ben Chilwell, N’Golo Kante, Wesley Fofana, and Kepa Arrizabalaga injured and, these losses have been very hard for a team that was practically dismantled in the winter market.

Chelsea lost to Arsenal at Stanford Bridge the previous matchday, but this defeat was not as hard as the one they suffered against Brighton two matchdays ago, where they taught them a soccer lesson on the pitch. They also come from a hard loss to Manchester City in the EFL Cup, getting out early of the competition.

For this match, we expect both teams to play their best and our pick is a Newcastle win with a score of 1-0.
