After a week away for Cup matches in the Premier League, teams return to play this weekend with a full slate of games smack-dab in the middle of the January transfer window. The variable effects of player transfers and inactivity creates the potential for a highly volatile weekend in the Premiership, but the weekly EPL Swarm made some confident predictions nonetheless.
One interesting feature of this week’s chart is Man. City being out of the top tier of confidence picks. They’re still undefeated for the season, but a New Year’s Eve draw to Crystal Palace and a near disaster to Bristol City in the League Cup may have the swarm feeling some trepidations about the Sky Blues. That, and they play on the road against a game Liverpool side who may have solved some of their defensive woes with a £75 million swoop on center back Virgil Van Dijk this past week.
With the EPL Swarm leaving City on the burner, it’s their longtime rivals who earn the Pick of the Week honors this week. United play at home against Stoke City in a match that in every way appears to be a walkover for the Red Devils. As the replay above shows, the swarm’s magnets unite quickly on a two goals-plus prediction for United. The swarm then backed up that confidence with a $100 wager that all but confirmed this game’s status. When asked to pick, the EPL Swarm chose Man U over Chelsea as their team most likely to win this weekend.
