EPL GW 9: Updated Table, Fixtures And Teams Likely To Drop Points This Week

Teams would play their ninth (9th) respective games in the English Premier League (EPL). Gameweek 9 of the EPL would begin with a game at the Emirates Stadium between Arsenal and Aston Villa today. The action will continue tomorrow through to Sunday with several exciting games.

League leaders, Chelsea will face a very weak Norwich City side which has lost almost every PL game they have played this season. Chelsea would surely pick up the 3 points at home against the newly promoted side. The biggest encounter all fans would be looking out for is the game between "undefeated" Liverpool and Manchester United. Manchester United has dropped a lot of points across its three previous PL games and as such would be looking forward to securing the 3 maximum points as they take on a very tough Liverpool side. Who would win in this encounter?

Check below for the fixtures for Gameweek 9:

Teams That Would Likely Drop Points This Week

1. Leicester City

The Foxes would take on a very solid Brentford side. The newly promoted side has proven to be a force to reckon with this season and this has earned them the 9th position on the league table. Unlike Brentford, Leicester City has a weak backline (defense). The Foxes have concede at least a goal in 7 of its 8 PL games. The Foxes have conceded a total of 14 goals while Brentford has conceded half of that (7).

2. Manchester United

Manchester United has failed to win any of its three previous PL games. The Red Devils have lost two and played a draw in its 3 previous PL games. Facing a very strong side like Liverpool, it is clear that the Red Devils do not stand the chance of picking the 3 maximum points. Do you think otherwise?

From the above fixtures, are there other teams that would likely drop points this week? Kindly leave all your comments below.
