Arsenal vs Hull
Arsenal suffered defeats to Watford and Chelsea last week and face a resurgent Hull for this weekend’s first kick-off. With title hopes all but gone arsenal will probably turn on the style as they tend to when the pressure is off.
Expect lots of goals in this fixture and with hull’s recent form, they could even get in on the act.
Betting tip: goals over 3.5
Manchester United vs Watford
Man Utd are hunting down the top 4 for a place in the champions league, if they are to get there surely, they will have to brush aside sides like Watford.
Watford themselves come off a great away victory against arsenal and will fancy getting a least a point in this fixture.
Man Utd haven’t lost many in recent months but have suffered far too many draws, this could be another one but it’s never wise betting against a top team especially at home.
Betting tip: Both teams to score NO
Middlesborough vs Everton
Everton are the form team in the premier league, while Middlesbrough have waned from a solid start the season. Borough now only a pint off the relegation zone.
Goals have been easy to come for Everton recently while borough have conceded a few. With Everton in such form it’ll hard for borough to constrain a free-scoring Everton.
Betting tip: Everton to win
Stoke city vs crystal palace
Palace are a sinking ship, even Sam Allardyce’s usual miracle like powers are not having the desired effect. Stoke are having a great season by their standard. One thing Sam Allardyce has always been good at is building a solid defence and making his teams hard to beat, but so far it’s been anything but a solid palace defence.
Stoke will relish this physical encounter, they are safe from relegation and have no pressure on them. For palace, however, every game seems like a ‘6 pointer’, and they’ve already shown they are not up for the fight.
Betting tip: Stoke to win
Sunderland vs Southampton
It seems Sunderland have been at the bottom of the premier league forever, but they’re only just a point from safety. last week they trashed crystal palace and looked mostly to escape the relegation, if any side can its probably Sunderland who are most equipped to do and have somehow escaped the drop so many times in recent seasons.
Southampton are in patchy form of late, having lost all three of their games and conceding 10 goals in the process.
With safety in sight, Sunderland will push Southampton hard in this fixture, whether they can come away with all three points remains in doubt.
Betting tip: match result Draw
West Ham vs West Brom
West Brom are having a great season, they are 8th with safety assured they can push for a Europa spot if they have great finish to the season.
West Ham have been the yoyo team this season, a few weeks ago, they were in the midst of the relegation battle and now are 9th with few worries of their premier league status in question.
Both teams play a nostalgic blend of English football with wingers and big strikers up front.
Expect goals in this one from both teams and some old-fashioned blood and thunder English winter football.
Betting tip: both teams to score
Liverpool vs Tottenham
Until a few weeks ago, Liverpool seemed the only side to likely to contest the premier league with Chelsea, in just a few weeks they have completely droped out title contention and their season seems to be falling apart.
Tottenham, however have had a few consistent weeks and seems look like the only team to push Chelsea all the way.
This fixture is always a close fought contest, and this match will be no different, expect a tough contest with few goal scoring chances. Both managers might just settle for a point each here.
Betting tip: goals under 2.5
Burley vs Chelsea
The runaway Premier League leaders face Premier League new boy’s Burley in the Sunday lunchtime kick-off. At first glimpse, Chelsea look like a banker for this fixture, but look closer at Burley’s tremendous home form and some there’s grounds to doubt an easy Chelsea victory.
Burnley have only dropped 11 points all season at home, indeed if their away form was only half as good as their home form they’d be in the mix for a champions league spot.
While Chelsea are still the overwhelming favourites, expect Burnley to put up a stiff fight.
Betting tip: Burnley Asian handicap +1.5
Swansea vs Leicester
Both Swansea and Leicester are just a point above the relegation zone, but more importantly Leicester are in terrible form while Swansea have picked valuable premier league wins in recent games.
Though better of late, Swansea Still have a leaky defence but at least they Seem to have found their goals scoring touch at least. Leicester on the hand, can’t seem to keep goals out or score many.
Swansea have form their side but maybe the dawning of the relegation fight might just stir the champions to find some of their form from last season.
Betting tip: both teams to score
Bournemouth vs Manchester city
In the last 10 games, Bournemouth have conceded an average of 3 goals per game, and have not won in 6. It’s safe to say they are in a bit of a pickle against Manchester city in the Monday night fixture.
Manchester city have found some decent form since the arrival of the Brazilian young superstar Gabriel Jesus and up against a leaky Bournemouth defence, he might just bag few more.
Good or bad Bournemouth always provide entertainment, unfortunately for them, the entertainment in this fixture may just prove to be at their expense.
Betting tip: Manchester city to win&over 2.5
