It can be difficult keeping track of all the action on the football pitch. We get that. If you’re not the biggest soccer fan in the world, it can seem frankly a little overwhelming. But luckily we’re here to help out. We’re going to give you a whistle stop tour of what’s been happening in the biggest league in England so far this season. And you never know, you might even get a few ideas for good Premier League wagers while you’re at it. So read this guide, polish up your football boots and get ready for Matchday 5.
Matchday 5 refers to the fifth round of matches the teams play over the course of the 38 week Premier League season. For the 2020/2021 season, Matchday 5 starts this Saturday, 17 October and runs until Monday, 19 October.
So as we said, this weekend is all about Matchday 5 in the Premier League. And with that, comes a whole lot of opportunities to place Premier League wagers. In total, there are 10 Matchday 5 games for you to choose from. We’re going to give you the full schedule so you can plan your Premier League wagers, as well as what ones you fancy watching.
It’s all very well and good knowing about what action is going on this week, but to place smart Premier League wagers, you have to know the wider context. So we’ll give you a quick recap on how things are going so far in the season.
The team in first place at the moment is Everton, with 12 points. They have won all four of the matches they’ve played so far, which is pretty impressive. There are four teams currently tied for second place on the league tables. They are Aston Villa, Leicester City, Arsenal and Liverpool. However, Aston Villa have only played three matches to-date and they’ve won all three. The other teams in the list have lost one of their games so far. That makes Aston Villa the next competitor to Everton right now.
Down at the bottom of the league table are Burnley, Sheffield United and Fulham. They’ve failed to win any matches this season so far. Even the most casual football fan should know that it’s next to impossible for one of these teams to catch up to the top half of the table before the season’s out.
Another thing to look out for is the top players so far this season. Both Dominic Calvert-Lewin from Everton and Son Heung-min from Tottenham have scored six goals each in total during the last four games they’ve played. Meanwhile Jamie Vardy from Leicester City and Mohamed Salah from Liverpool are hot on their heels, with five goals scored over the past four games.
