For soccer betting enthusiasts around the world, there is no more exciting time than the English Premiership. This year has hailed the mother of all surprises as Leicester City currently resides top of the log.
Arsenal and Manchester City who have merely been scraping by and will face Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspurs respectively this weekend were firm favourites at the start but have yet to prove themselves as title holders.
For the first time in a generation, Tottenham has a real possibility of winning the title, and they are showing the kind of form that may just boost them from zero to hero. The team from north London has clambered into second place, five points behind Leicester City and only just ahead of Arsenal on goal difference, with 13 matches left. Not since 1985 have Spurs been this high on the log this late in the season.
Aston Villa have a very strong chance of winning their game against Liverpool on Sunday as they face a team who have just been beaten in the FA Cup as well as the stress of the Europa League which is their only chance of qualifying for the Champions League. Liverpool have been poor when defending set plays and that is where Aston Villa seems to be a threat.
