Football betting is hugely popular and with Midnite football, you can get the best odds in one place, and place bets on your favourite team. Here's a round-up of how the Premier League is shaping up so far this season.

Last Season Recap

Before we can dive into the Premier League this year, it helps to reflect on last season – so that we can get some idea of how the current season may shape up. But the league has been throwing us some curveballs so far, and we're only a few weeks in, so it's all to play for! Last season Manchester City shot to the top of the table and went on to win the league with 12 consecutive victories and 13 points clear by January, some may say that it was a sure-fire win for City, until Liverpool won 10 games leading to a single point separating the teams in the final weeks of the season.

It wasn't just the title race that has us all on the edge of our seats– Newcastle United's takeover and appointment of Eddie Howe meant they made a huge turnaround from an otherwise disappointing start to go on to win 12 consecutive games and finish 11th, so all eyes will be on the team this season to see how they shape up. Bournemouth, Fulham, and Nottingham Forest were promoted last season, so fans will be eager to see how they perform against Premier League teams.

Bournemouth Vs Liverpool: Historical Defeat

The season has been off to a great start, with many of us being unable to even guess some of the results we've been seeing in recent weeks, none more so that the defeat of Bournemouth by Liverpool, with a huge 9-0 win for The Reds. Many would say that newly promoted Bournemouth didn't have a chance against the mighty Liverpool, but not even the supporters would have expected such a defeat. The onslaught began just 3 minutes into the game with a goal from Luis Diaz, continuing throughout the game with goals from Harvey Elliot, Firmino and Carvalho to name a few, resulting in 5-0 before halftime. Manager Scott Parker said that Bournemouth currently did not have the tools to play teams of such a high standard and has since parted ways with the club after this punishing defeat.  

Haaland tops the list of goals scorers

A brand-new addition to Manchester City, a lot has been expected from Erling Haaland in the first games of the season, as fans anticipated goals galore from this new signing. Haaland, a Norwegian national, was signed from Borussia Dortmund shortly after he was named the Bundesliga's Player of the Season. Fans may have thought it was off to a slow start for Haaland, but after only a few games, the Norwegian has managed to rack up 6 goals in 4 games, with 1 assist and a total of 17 shots throughout the games played so far. We're set to see many more goals from Haaland as the season plays out as he tops the table of goal scorers after the first few games – but will he stay there?

Arsenal: An unbeatable start

The Gunners are off to the perfect start in the Premier League this season as they remain unbeaten after 4 games since the Premier League began, with victories over teams such as Everton, Crystal Palace, and Leicester City, as well as their most recent win against Fulham. The club signed Jesus from Manchester City during the transfer window who has already scored 2 goals in the games played with many more expected from him this season. All eyes will be on Arsenal in the coming weeks to see if they can hold on to their unbeaten run, with fixtures including Manchester United away and Tottenham at the start of October – will they fall when up against quality teams, or will they maintain their winning streak?
