Arsenal dropped valuable points and their top spot in the league in week 23 as they drew 2-2 with Southampton. They will be looking to maintain the pressure on Man City at the top of the league when they meet Crystal Palace in week 24. Palace have managed to pull 4 points clear of the bottom 3 in recent weeks by picking up valuable wins against their closest rivals, but their form against teams from the top half does not make pretty reading, and they will be up against it this week when they travel to the Emirates Stadium. We fancy Arsenal here at odds of $1.18
Both these teams faced city rivals in week 23. Liverpool secured bragging rights as they secured 3 points in a 4-0 thrashing of Everton. It looked like West Brom were going to hand out a thrashing of their own when they went 2-0 up in just 10 minutes, but defensive mishaps and missed opportunities seen rivals Villa take all 3 points in a 4-3 win. Liverpool’s away form has proved vulnerable at times this season, but they look a strong team in recent weeks and have only lost 1 game to teams in the bottom half of the league. We suggest an easy Liverpool vistory at odds of $1.65
Hull’s recent form has taken a bit of a dip and they have not won in their last 4 games, on top of that, they play host to Tottenham in week 24 and their form against teams in the top 6 reads 1 win and 7 losses. On the positive side, 6 of those losses have been on the road and of the games played at home, they picked up an impressive win against Liverpool. Tottenham come into week 24 on the back of their 3rd game of the season in which the conceded 5+ goals after a 5-1 defeat to Man City, however their recent form on the road has led to 5 wins in a row and at odds of $1.95, we think they will make it 6 against Hull.
Stoke’s form has gone from bad, losing 1-0 to Sunderland in week 23 and extending their run to 6 games without a win. Things do not get any easier in week 24 as they face a visit from Man Utd. United have won 4 of their last 6 games, and with the £30 million signing of Mata, they will be hoping their team can return to the form that seen them winning premiership titles. We suggest a comfortable victory for Man Utd at odds of $1.61
Everton visited city rivals Liverpool in week 23 and suffered a 4-0 defeat and a big dent in their challenge for the top 4. They will be hoping their strong home form will get them back on track as they play host to Villa in week 24. Villa also faced city rivals in the form of West Brom, and after just 10 minutes they found themselves 2-0 down, however in a first half goal fest, they managed to find the net 3 times and went into halftime drawing 3-3. The second half was less eventful and Aston Villa secured all 3 points when Benteke converted from the spot after he was brought down in the box. We think Everton’s home form could give them the edge here and secure them all 3 points at odds of $1.30
West Ham put up one of the best defensive efforts of the season in week 23 as they held Chelsea to a 0-0 draw despite them racking up well over 25 attempts at goal. This may well be Sam Allardyce’s tactics for the near future as they look to escape the relegation battle. Swansea’s season is currently a tale of 2 halves. Against the top half of the league they have managed just 1 win, but in the bottom half they have lost just 1 game. They are without a win in the last 5 on the road and against the defensive side of West Ham, it will not be easy to score goals. We suggest a 0-0 draw here at $10.00
Fulham have lost their last 3 matches and find themselves 2nd from bottom of the league and fighting to maintain their premiership status coming into week 24. They face a Southampton side that picked up a valuable point in week 23 after a valiant effort against top of the table Arsenal in a 2-2 draw. We fancy a hard fought draw here at odds of $3.25
Rivalry does not come much bigger than the Newcastle v Sunderland derby, and with Sunderland taking the bragging rights from the first game, Newcastle will be looking for revenge. Newcastle have lost their last 2 games, but these were defeats to title challengers Arsenal and Man City so we cannot read too much into that. Sunderland are unbeaten in the last 3 and having escaped the bottom 3 after being 7 points adrift at the foot of the table earlier in the season, Sunderland have really transformed their fortunes. With them flying high they look the value bet at odds of $4.20
Cardiff start week 24 still at the bottom of the table after after a defeat to Man Utd in week 23. They have now lost the last 4, and you have to go all the way back to mid December for their last win against an out of form West Brom. Norwich picked up a valuable point against Newcastle on the back of a massive 3 points against Hull. Their defence was 2nd to none against Newcastle, but going forward they struggled and goals do not come easy to both these teams. We predict a draw here at $3.10
Tottenham come into this game sitting in 5th position in the league and on a 4 game winning streak. 3 points in week 23 will keep them well and truly in the race for the top 4 and the Champions League position. They take on Man City who will be looking to extend their 7 game winning streak and put Arsenal under pressure at the top of the table. Tottenham have only managed to secure 1 point from a possible 12 against teams in the top 4, and although home support will be an advantage, Man City have been so impressive in recent weeks and show no signs of slowing down in their pursuit for the title. We suggest Man City at $2.05
