A second-half goal by Jose Leonardo Ulloa was all Leicester City needed to secure their very first win of the season. A stunning pass from Paul Konchesky allowed Ulloa to do the conversion and the squad’s outstanding performance in the defense department helped them hold Stoke City in a deadlock for the rest of the period. The victory has therefore given them three points to their score sheet and they are now just a few steps away from the top half. Manchester United, meanwhile, have also earned their very first win of the season from their most recent EPL battle versus QPR. The squad netted a total of four goals and prevented their opponents from scoring any. Angel di Maria opened the scoring in the 24th minutes and was doubled by Ander Herrera 12 minutes later before Wayne Rooney struck the final goal of the first half. Juan Mata delivered the team’s fourth and final goal in the second half. The Red Devils are now positioned within the top nine.

 

Football betting tip: Former champions Manchester United will strive to gain back the title by following up their recent victory with another win, this time against Leicester.

Tottenham vs. West Bromwich Albion

Match Date: 21 September 2014 (local)

Match Venue: White Hart Lane

 

Tottenham seem to be having a relatively difficult time figuring out which new tactics they can use or which old strategies they should retain to mimic their successes in the first two weeks of the Premier League. Their last two matches have so far given them only one point from one draw and a loss. Their battle against Sunderland was entertaining, with goals from Chadli and Eriksen, but ultimately ended in a draw. West Brom, meanwhile, have yet to win a fixture for their top-flight campaign as they spend the past four weeks with either a draw or a defeat. They have been goalless in their past three tourneys and inevitably, they are currently marooned in the league table’s bottom two.

 

Sports betting tip: Tottenham Hotspur will bag their third win of the season from this face-off against West Brom.
