Weekly Expert Betting Tips - Join our free mailing listFollowing on from the international break, it was business as usual in the Premier League this weekend and those eager to see the return of domestic action would not have been disappointed.
Liverpool v Swansea
The eye catching result of the weekend undoubtedly came at the Etihad Stadium, where Manchester City were dismantled by a resurgent Liverpool side. The reds fans will hope that this victory will signal an upturn in results under Jurgen Klopp and will be looking to build on an impressive display this weekend when they face a struggling Swansea side at Anfield. Sportsbet has them at to secure a comfortable home win.
Leicester City v Manchester United
The two beneficiaries of City’s loss, Manchester United and Leicester City face off at the King Power Stadium in Saturday’s late kick off in what promises to be the weekend’s stand out fixture. After a hard fought win at Vicarage Road last week, an injury hit United will be hoping to begin to show the signs of consistency required to establish themselves as genuine title contenders.
However, the Leicester team that stands in their way continued their extremely impressive start to the season by recording a fifth win from the last six games, overcoming Newcastle 0-3 at St James’s Park. With a third of the season already gone, the foxes’ somewhat surprising league position is justified reward for the fantastic job Claudio Ranieri has done since taking over from Nigel Pearson in the summer.
In addition to the win which saw them climb to the summit of the table, the icing on the cake came in the form of Jamie Vardy extending his red hot goal scoring streak which now sees him equal Ruud Van Nistlerooy’s record of scoring in ten consecutive Premier League matches. Can he bag the goal next week that will send him out on his own and break the record? Keep your eyes on Sportsbet for the latest odds on Vardy to achieve this historic milestone.
Crystal Palace v Newcastle
At the other end of the table, this defeat, Newcastle’s seventh of the season, added to boss Steve McClaren’s woes. The Geordies find themselves languishing in seventeenth place and an attractive price of ….with sportsbet to be plying their trade in the Championship next season. With a difficult fixture at Selhurst Park coming up this weekend, followed by a home game against a revitalised Liverpool, don’t expect an upturn in fortune for the Magpies anytime soon.
West Ham v West Brom
West Bromwich Albion recorded this week’s second eyebrow raising result, beating Arsenal 2-1 at the Hawthorns. Despite taking the lead - their eighteenth goal in the last seven games – Arsenal succumbed to two goals before half time and the defeat meant that they were left to reflect on the unwanted fact that they are yet to record a victory in any competition in November.
Next up for Tony Pulis’s side is a trip to Upton Park where Slavin Bilic’s West Ham renaissance continues to gather momentum, despite a heavy defeat at White Hart Lane over the weekend. The draw looks good value at in what should be a tight game.
Tottenham v Chelsea
After putting a run of three consecutive defeats behind them with a narrow victory over Norwich City at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea begin the daunting task of climbing the Premier League table. Currently floundering in fourteenth place, it is going to take a mammoth effort for the blues to string together the type of winning streak necessary in order to claim one of the coveted top four places and thus Champions league qualification in May.
Next up for Jose Mourinho’s side is a visit to Tottenham Hotspur who themselves have top four ambitions. This could be cracking a London derby, and with both Harry Kane and Diego Costa showing signs of regaining the goal scoring form that terrified defences up and down the land in the last campaign, both sides will be feeling confident of victory and total goals bettors will be keen on over 2.5 at odds of
Sunderland v Stoke
In the process of recording their first ever win at St Mary’s this week, Stoke - basking in fine recent form which included a league and cup double over Chelsea - inflicted only their second defeat in eleven league matches on the Saints. Can the Potters carry this form into their next fixture away at the Stadium of Light? Mark Hughes’ men are good value at for victory against Sam Allardyce’s fragile Sunderland team.
Man City v Southampton
Meanwhile, Southampton make the journey north to face a Manchester City side who will be desperate to put the memory of last weekend’s mauling by Liverpool firmly behind them. With the prolific Sergio Aguero back from injury and immediately taking up where he left off among the goals, back him for first goal and a home victory at Sportsbet
Bournemouth v Everton
Everton’s stroll over an atrocious Aston Villa at Goodison Park was notable for the remarkable achievement of Romelu Lukaku who, in scoring Everton’s second goal joined an elite group including Michael Owen, Robbie Fowler, Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo, all of who registered 50 Premier League goals their 23rd birthdays. Bet on him to keep up his excellent current goal scoring form this weekend at Premier league new boys, Bournemouth.
Aston Villa v Watford
Having dispensed with the services of Tim Sherwood, new Villa manager Remy Guarde will be desperate to see a vast improvement and quickly if they are to stand any chance of avoiding relegation. With five losses from the last six games, Villa sit rock bottom and it will take an almighty effort to find the improvement needed to put an end to the woeful run of form they are in. Next up they have Watford at Villa Park and it is the kind of fixture they will need to take maximum points from in order to begin an escape. Odds of for a home win look too skinny for punters to get involved with.
