The EPL Gameweek 6 starts with Manchester United-Leicester City at midday. We analyzed this and also Liverpool-Hll City, Middlsebrough-Tottenham, Swansea-Manchester City and Arsenal-Chelsea.
Five months ago Leicester were looking to win their title in Old Trafford: a draw occurred in that case but The Foxes became the EPL Champions the same after the draw in
Leicester are basically the same team of the past season, exception made for Kante, just now Ranieri can count on better reserves and a good striker like Islam Slimani.
Manchester United have instead changed a lot, from the coach to several players in the key roles: Bailly in the defense, Pogba and Mkhitaryan in the midfield and Ibra as forwarder.
Red Devils' begin of the season was really good beating Leicester in the Community Shield but after the defeat occurred in the Manchester Derby Mourinho's men have been defeatd also by Feyenoord and Watford. From United latest 3 matches we noticed some tactical lacks: Pogba as central midfielder has not shown big things till now, while Ibrahimovic tends to move back too often in order to receive the ball on his feet but this way the Swedish giant steps on Rooney's toes.
In our opinion a good solution could be keeping Rooney on the bench and give space to Rashford behind Ibra. Mourinho is relying a lot on Rashford but his potential is limited if placed on the wings.
Mancheter United have several skilled offensive players who can solve the match with individuals moves but from a tactical point of view Leicester appear to be much more solid and ready to hit an unconvincing defense like United's one.
Both teams to score is our choice.
Liverpool have showed to be ready to fight for the title after the win over Chelsea, not just because of the win obtained in a tough stadium, but mainly because of the great
performance they made.
Klopp's offensive men like to make a lot of movement and do not have a fix position on the pitch and that caused a tilt in Chelsea's defense. This could happen again against a lower team that is supposed to be on the defensive for big part of the match like Hull City.
Liverpool have a great trend at Anfield under Klopp with only one loss (vs Manchester United, and that was the only match were The Reds have been unable to score).
Hull City, after the 2 surprising wins in the first two matches, have then slowed down obtaining only 1 point from the latest 3 games. Hull City have good offensive skills and could score a goal to a defense that is still too unstable, mainly because of Mignolet's performances, the mediocre harmony between Lovren and Matip and Milner's position as lateral backs which is not that great when defending.
Tottenham will be without the injured Harry Kane for over two months, but luckily the club signed Vincent Janssen from AZ Alkmaar.
The dutch forwarder is a skilled young who have already scored in EFL Cup but not yet in the EPL. Probably Janssen will show his skills and secure Tottenham a decent amount of goals until Kane will be available again.
In our opinion Tottenham have a great squad also without their striker and are favourite in the clash vs Middlesbrough. Boro have collected 5 points from the 5 EPL games played till now. Coach Karanka has solved all the limits seen in the second part of the past season and the new arrival De Roon (from Atalanta) has brought some more solidity to the midfield, but ,as said above, The Spurs are stronger in any position and will get a positive result here.
Swansea and Manchester City already met some days ago and the winners were, as usual, Manchester City (9 wins in a row with Guardiola on the bench).
Finally Aguero is back after the 3 games ban and the importance of the Argentinian striker can be celarly seen in the seasonal stats: 9 goals scored in 6 matches.
Swansea are in trouble with only 4 points obtained from 5 gameweeks. The situation could be worse if we take a look at Swansea's next opponents (Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal).
The only hope for the hosts is to pay a lot of attention to the defensive phase but the problem is that they have never showed a good defensive organization in the beginning of the season.
The little lack we noticed about Manchester City is that they have kept a clean sheet only once and Swansea have a good offensive potential with Sigurdsson and Llorente. It is possible Swansea will score but we firmly choose the visitors.
