As the EPL season heads into its seventh weekend of play on Saturday, the biggest question has been whether any team in the league might slow down Manchester City. Over their last three contests, the Citizens have won by 5-nil, 4-nil, and 5-nil scores and sit comfortably atop the Premiership Table as we head into the weekend’s much-anticipated match at Chelsea.
Turns out, the one thing that might stop the Man City juggernaut is a cab driver. Late last night, City learned that star goal-scorer Sergio Aguero would be lost for up to a month with a cracked rib suffered when the taxi he was in struck a light pole. The UNU Premier League Swarm was fully aware of this injury when they considered the game, and they downgraded this to a very low confidence match as a result. (That the swarm still predicted City to win is a testament to just how deep Pep Guardiola’s club looks this year.) Here’s the full prediction chart for the weekend.
The swarm’s pick of the week is the other Manchester side, the seemingly rejuvenated United. The swarm rated the Red Devils highly across all confidence metrics in this match. There’s high Brainpower, a near-unanimous draw to the Manchester side of the hex, and a final topper of a $100 hypothetical wager confidence. Pity poor Crystal Palace, who were forced to take a thrashing at the hands of Man. City last week and seem lined up for another beating from United on Saturday.
