What seems like a never-ending Premier League season will witness new developments in the coming days. The league, notorious for its busy schedule will, for the first time ever, embark on some sort of break this month.
You’ll remember that the league has continued non-stop since it started in August. However, the Football Association has decided to try something new by introducing the Winter Break.
What is the Premier League Winter Break?
The winter break will last for two weeks. And no, this break doesn’t mean there won’t be Premier League games for the two-week duration of the break. What it means is that the 10 games of one Matchday will spread over two weeks. So, instead of having 10 games played on one weekend, they will be played over two.
The break which starts this weekend, was agreed upon in 2018 by the Football Association, Premier League and English Football League. With the Euro 2020 coming up in a few months’ time, it gives the players an opportunity to catch their breath.
What Does This Mean for Your Betting This Weekend?
Simply put, you can only bet on four Premier League games this weekend. The 10 Round 26 games will be split into two: four will be played this weekend, with six to be played next week.

Manchester City is the only top-six side that will feature in the league this weekend when they welcome West Ham to the Etihad. The Citizens will be looking to bounce back from their defeat to Tottenham in the last PL Matchday.
Man. City have won their last 10 games against West Ham, with nine of those games finishing with over 2,5 goals. With West Ham failing to win any of their last six games in all competitions, Man. City are favorites to win this game.
Another Premier League game you can bet on this weekend is the Everton vs. Crystal Palace game. The Merseyside Blues are on a four-game unbeaten run while Crystal Palace haven’t won a game in their last seven. This clash has since been characterized by few goals as eight of the past 10 meetings between both sides featured fewer than three goals.
Will the trend continue this weekend?

Six of Watford’s last seven games have featured at least three goals. However, they have two of those games, scoring 12 goals in the run and conceding 11 goals. When they take on Brighton & Hove this weekend, they’ll face a side they’ve only managed to defeat once in their last five meetings.
Sheffield United will look to continue their fine form when they take on Bournemouth this weekend. The last time both sides met, the game ended in a draw. That was the first time Bournemouth took a point from their clash against the Blades, with the last four before that game ending in defeats for them.
