Swansea sacked boss Michael Laudrup this week after several poor results seen them plummeting towards a relegation battle. With the gap between them and bottom 3 down to just 2 points, a win against local rivals Cardiff would prove satisfying in more ways than one. Cardiff come from a goal behind to win 2-1 against Norwich and secure a valuable 3 points. They have already beat Swansea once this week, and with the swans in some disarray and managerless, Cardiff at odds of $4.50 could be the value here.
Tottenham drew 1-1 with Hull in week 24 and are now 3 points behind 4th placed Liverpool. Everton secured 3 points after a late fightback seen them turn a loss into a win against Aston Villa. This could be one of the matches of the weekend and with Liverpool taking on Arsenal, both teams will see it as a chance to make points on 4th position and that valuable Champions League spot. We think a hard fought draw is the bet for this match at odds of $3.50
Norwich find themselves just 1 point off the drop zone after a 2-1 defeat to Cardiff. They play host to a Man City side that also lost in week 24. Defeat to Chelsea ended their 100% winning record at home and meant they come into week 25 level on points with Chelsea and 2 points behind Arsenal at the top. It would be an even bigger shock if they were to drop points in this match-up. We think Man City will bounce bag with a big scoreline here. We suggest Man City 5-0 at $26.00
Chelsea managed a first in the league in week 24. They went to the Etihad and beat Man City 1-0, ending their 100% home record. Newcastle have picked up just 4 of the last 18 points available. They suffered a damaging loss in week 24 as they went down 3-0 to local rivals Sunderland. Chelsea will be on a high after their last result, and despite Mourinho playing down their hopes of another league title, the players will be making every effort to try and grab that top spot. We suggest Chelsea 3-1 here at odds of $12.00
Sunderland seem to have found their winning ways under manager Zola in recent weeks. Week 24 seen them complete the double over local rivals Newcastle in some style. Hull have lost the last 3 away from home and are without a win in the last 9 on the road. Sunderland will see this as a chance to increase the gap between them and the bottom 3. We suggest Sunderland here at odds of $2.05
Southampton took advantage of the poor form Fulham are in and romped to a 3-0 win in week 24. They play host to a Stoke team that secured a massive 3 point win against Man Utd in their last match, but their away form is abysmal and they have picked up just 1 point from a possible 18 in the last 6 games. Southampton will expect to pick up 3 points from this game and we cannot see a reason for them not to be able to. Southampton 2-0 at odds of $6.50 is our advice here.
Aston Villa let another winning position slip away in week 24 as they went down 2-1 to Everton late on. West Ham secured a valuable 3 points as they beat Swansea 2-0 despite losing striker Andy Carroll and going down to 10 men. West Ham have become very defensive in recent weeks and this is likely to be a tactic they deploy again this week. We suggest a draw here at odds of $3.40
This is a crucial match in the race to stay above the relegation zone. Crystal Palace lost in week 24, but this was to title contenders Arsenal and it was by no means a one sided match. West Brom also played a top 4 team in the form of Liverpool and managed to pick up a valuable point after a defensive howler allowed them to equalise. It has been a long time since West Brom won away from home and Crystal Palace have been picking up valuable points from the teams around them which has seen them break out of the bottom 3. We suggest a Palace win here at odds of $2.50
Liverpool have not won against a team above them so far this season, but all these games have been away and it is fair to say that they put up good fights against both Chelsea and Man City over the christmas period and if it was not for a few poor refereeing decisions, results could have been a lot different. Arsenal seen their winning streak come to an end in week 23 when they drew with Southampton, this also caused them to relinquish the top spot. They have only faced one of the top four away from home this season, that was Man City away and resulted in their biggest defeat of the season. This result could have a big impact on both teams seasons and in such a crucial match, home advantage will be a big plus. We suggest Liverpool win here at odds of $2.15
Man City maintained their excellent form and high scoring record in week 23 as they thrashed Tottenham 5-1. Chelsea could only manage a point against struggling West Ham despite racking up over 25 attempts on goal. They beat Man City at home earlier in the season, but Man City at home is a totally different challenge. We suggest Man City at odds of $1.80.
