Start Your Journey To £1million At i-pools In Our Premier League Beat The Streak

Start Your Journey To £1million At i-pools In Our Premier League Beat The Streak
Thursday,November 1,2018

The Premier League is bubbling up nicely as we enter matchday 11 of what’s turning out to be another fascinating season. A fine win for Man City against Tottenham on Monday kept the champions unbeaten, along with Liverpool and Chelsea, while at the wrong end of the table, Newcastle and Huddersfield are still searching for their first victory of the season. Week 11 again promises to be a thriller, with Arsenal hosting Liverpool 5:30pm on Saturday, the clear highlight.


As usual, another big week of action means there’s another chance for you to play for £1million at i-pools, in our Beat the Streak. If you’re a newcomer, the rules couldn’t be simpler. Pick a team to win their Premier League match each week to move through, and if you choose 20 consecutive winners, you’ll get your hands on the £1million Jackpot. However, you can only pick the same team once throughout the duration of the pool, meaning you’ll need to choose every team at some point, which might not be so easy considering it’s hard to know when Huddersfield and Newcastle’s first wins are coming.


With a brand new game to play for the first 19 weeks of the season, there’s no need to worry if you’ve already been eliminated from a previous game, with plenty more chances to try to scoop the Jackpot.


Four players still remain in our Matchday one pool, meaning their halfway to the £1million after picking their 10th consecutive winner last weekend. But given the fact all four players have already used up the big six, it’s going to be an uphill struggle considering the bottom five teams have just three wins between them!


Which team will you pick in week 11?


If you’re starting afresh, there are several decent options to choose this weekend, whether you want to use up one of the title contenders to seal a safe passage, or back a mid-table team in a winnable fixture.


In terms of the big six, Man Utd face a tricky encounter at Bournemouth, with the Cherries in fine form as the early season surprise package. Eddie Howe’s men have enjoyed their best ever start to a Premier League season, with recent 4-0 and 3-0 victories at Watford and Fulham putting them sixth, just two points off the top four. Despite being unbeaten in three, United haven’t exactly set the world on fire and while you’d still back them to come away with three points, it’s far from a foregone conclusion, meaning they should be left well alone this week. The same can be said for Arsenal and Liverpool, who meet Saturday with both teams in fine form. It’s one that’s hard to call, and both sides should be used when they face lesser teams at home, which won’t be too far around the corner.


Spurs also face a potentially tricky trip to Wolves, who despite back-to-back defeats, are comfortably mid-table. That leaves Man City and Chelsea as two teams you could potentially use this week. City host a hapless Southampton, who have gone six without a win, and haven’t found the back of the net in their past five. Pep’s men are flying with eight wins in 10 and even if they decide to rest a few with the Champions League in mind, they should still have more than enough for the struggling Saints. Chelsea are unbeaten with seven wins from 10, and are firm favourites against a Palace side who are overly reliant on Wilfried Zaha and have lost three of their past five games, although managed a respectable 2-2 draw against Arsenal last week.


If you’ve already used up the top sides in our previous games or are looking to save the big clubs in our new Beat the Streak, West Ham could be a good shout. It’s not without risks however, with the Hammers winning just twice so far this season but they host a Burnley side with the same number of wins, coming off the back of 5-0 and 4-0 defeats. Only two teams have conceded more than Burnley this season, and West Ham will be hoping Marko Arnautovic will be fit enough to add to his four league goals against a shaky defence. With a home victory against Man United already secured, you’d back the Hammers to see off Burnley, to send you through.


Another good option is Everton at home to Brighton. The Toffees are doing well under Marco Silva, winning three in a row before their 2-1 defeat at Old Trafford. That includes home wins against Palace and Fulham, and Goodison Park is becoming a fortress, with three of their four league wins coming at home. However, Brighton are also in good form, winning three on the bounce all 1-0, proving hard to break down. But given Everton’s attacking quality with the likes of Richarlison, Theo Walcott, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Cenk Tosun and Bernard, you’d expect them to have just about enough to get past Brighton, especially considering they’re tough to beat at home.
