The best football tips today don’t burn as brightly for Leicester City in the Premiership as they do after their début Champions League campaign as they have won both matches putting them top in their group. It is going to be very tough for them to manage to play in both Europe and the League. Last season they had a huge advantage over their rivals as they were able to just concentrate on the matches in the league with no other distractions. They were the best football bets to make last year win the league, however, it looks like this time around it will be a stretch too far. They may, however, surprise the world yet again and win the Champions League which would be an even greater miracle than them winning the Premiership last season.
Daily football tips websites have Leicester City as the favorite to win this one. They are at home and Southampton has not hit the form of last season. Leicester has had a mixed start to the campaign and has already lost three matches the same amount the lost for the whole of last season. They started off badly with an away loss to Hull City 2 – 1 but rebounded back by managing to draw against the Gunners at home 0 – 0. They went on to beat Swansea at home but were then thrashed by Liverpool away 4 – 1. It looked like this may have been a one of as they went on to beat Burnley 3 – 0, however, in their last outing, they were destroyed by Manchester United 4 – 1. It seems that the top teams have figured out their weakness and if they can no mix it with the best in the league this term, they will not qualify for Europe.
Southampton reminds me of the Tottenham Hotspur side of old, where each year they sell their best player and it impacts the team greatly. They have done this consistently now for the last few season and last year was no exception. Spurs have learned their mistake which is why they are now challenging for the title and it is them who took advantage of them over the summer months by buying Victor Wanyama. He is a player that Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has been after since leaving his post as Southampton manager. The Saints have not been able to replace him and he has left a huge whole in defensive midfield which has made them more vulnerable at the back. New manager Claude Puel job is under threat and is one of the top daily football tips sites favorite to lose his job before the season ends.
Southampton started the season slowly win a draw at home against Watford followed by a 2 – 0 away loss to Manchester United. They went on to draw their next game at home against Sunderland and lost 2 – 1 to Arsenal but since then their form has improved. They have won their last two matches beating Swansea City 1 – 0 at home and then following it up with a 0 – 3 thrashing of West Ham away from home. Those last two results will have helped boost the player’s confidence a great deal and will fancy their chances of beating Leicester City.
With Leicester City playing in the Champions League, the players will not be used to the physical demands due to it been their first season playing in Europe. Even though they are playing at home, I think that the Southampton players will be fresher will give them an advantage over the later stages of the game. If they will go onto win the match. They are the outsiders to win the game so the odds available are high paying. It is why they are my best football bets to make for week 7 in the EPL.
