No luck this week on our tips so far, but I do feel somewhat unlucky as I had backed Crystal Palace to win 1-0 away to Burnley and it wasn’t until a 94th minute striker by Tyrick Mitchell that this particular bet didn’t come in.

This week also saw some surprising results with Arsenal beaten for the first time this season by Newcastle United, while Liverpool needed an injury time equaliser from Luis Diaz to rescue a point away to a very plucky Luton Town.

Aston Villa were another team in the top six to lose as they went down to a 2-0 defeat to Nottingham Forest at the City Ground after what was a lacklustre display by their own standards and in another shock Sheffield United grabbed their first win of the season with a 2-1 victory over Woves.

You can see how these surprise results have affected things at the top of the Premier League table by following the link. Things at the bottom of the table have not changed a great deal even with that win for the Blades.

Several Premier League teams are in action this week with Tottenham facing Chelsea on Monday night and then Man Utd, Arsenal, Man City and Newcastle in action in the Champions League, while Liverpool, West Ham and Brighton are in action in the Europa League and Aston Villa in the Europa Conference League.

I have no doubt that the performances, or lack of them, in those games may well influence the kind of team that the managers of those sides put out for this weekend’s games.

Arteta “Disgrace” Blast For “Embarrassing” VAR Decision In Newcastle Loss

Mikel Arteta has blasted the role that the application of VAR technology played in his team’s 1-0 loss to Newcastle at the weekend. The Arsenal manager was incandescent with rage that Anthony Gordon’s goal was allowed to stand after officials deemed there was not enough visual evidence to overturn the referee’s decision despite three aspects of the goal being looked at. Arteta called the decision a “disgrace” and “embarrassing” in an apparent change of tune from last month when he commented that “mistakes happen” after Liverpool’s legal goal against Tottenham was ruled out erroneously.

Bruno Delivers Late Knockout Punch To Ease Pressure On Ten Hag

Despite another lacklustre performance against an equally lacklustre Fulham, Manchester United escaped with a 1-0 win thanks to Bruno Fernandes injury time strike. The Portuguese star and Manchester United captain produced the one moment of class in an otherwise dreary game to snatch the points for United at the death. The win moved United up to 8th in the table, level on points with Brighton.

Doku Inspires City To Rampant Win Over Hapless Cherries

Bournemouth went down to another heavy defeat in the Premier League as Manchester City ran rampant at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday. The home side mustered six goals and Erling Haaland did not score any of them as Jeremy Doku stole the show with a fantastic performance. Doku scored the opener and then saw Bernardo Silva grab two, with Akanji, Foden and Ake rounding off the goals. Sinisterra scored a consolation, but this was an ominous win for City who moved top of the table ahead of Spurs’ game with Chelsea on Monday.

Premier League – Matchday 12 Fixtures And Tips

The games listed kick off at 3pm on Saturday, 2pm on Sunday unless otherwise stated. All odds are courtesy of bet365 Sport and were correct at the time of writing, but may have changed since.

Saturday 11th November

  • Wolverhampton Wanderers v Tottenham Hotspurs (12.30pm)

After the drama of their Monday night game with Chelsea, Spurs will get a chance to banish some of those demons in the early kick off game away to Wolves. They face a Wolves side whose defeat last week to Sheffield United was their first such loss in six games. Spurs will be without the suspended Cristian Romero and Destiny Udogie for this game while Micky Van de Ven will miss out through injury. James Maddison is also a doubt for Spurs for what could be a close game. Tip – Wolves 1-2 Tottenham – 9/1.

  • Arsenal v Burnley

Mikel Arteta’s furious VAR outburst last weekend has been echoed in a letter Arsenal sent to PGMOL but the Gunners may get the best response from their players as they host Burnley at the Emirates Stadium in need of a pick up after their first defeat of the Premier League season last weekend. Burnley’s record is poor with just four points this season and Vincent Kompany’s team are in need of a boost. I can’t see them getting that here though against an Arsenal team that will be seeking to vent some frustrations here. Tip – Arsenal 4-0 Burnley – 10/1.

  • Crystal Palace v Everton

Everton’s improved form continued at the weekend as they earned a draw with Brighton, while Palace managed to secure all three points from their trip to Burnley leaving them safely outside the relegation zone in mid-table. Sean Dyche will be delighted with the response from his players in recent weeks and they are unbeaten since losing the Merseyside derby to Liverpool. This one could be a close one and I feel a draw is likely the best value option here. Tip – Crystal Palace 0-0 Everton – 7/1.

  • Manchester United v Luton Town

After securing a point at home to Liverpool last weekend, Luton will feel that anything is possible as they head north for a huge game at Old Trafford against Manchester United. Erik Ten Hag’s team secured a last gasp win at Fulham last weekend to ease the pressure on the manager and they should feel confident of getting a win here. Playing at home is one thing but Old Trafford away is another and even despite United’s poor form of late, you have to back them to win here. Tip – Manchester United 3-0 Luton Town – 9/1.

  • Bournemouth v Newcastle United (5.30pm)

Can Bournemouth bounce back from their 6-1 mauling at Manchester City last week? They have a very tough task of doing that against a Newcastle United side that are in excellent form at the moment and who defeated Arsenal at St James’ Park last weekend. In terms of all measurables here, Newcastle are the team to go for, and in truth they should win this game relatively comfortably. Tip – Bournemouth 0-2 Newcastle United – 9/1.

Sunday 12th November

  • Aston Villa v Fulham

Aston Villa were well-beaten last week by Nottingham Forest, while Fulham went down to a late defeat against Manchester United. So both will be seeking to bounce back here, but it is Villa that should be regarded as the clear favourites thanks to their excellent home form over the course of the season so far. Fulham have had some decent away results, but I think you have to assume last week was a blip for Villa and they’ll get back to winning ways here. Tip – Aston Villa 3-1 Fulham – 12/1.

  • Brighton v Sheffield United

Brighton’s search for a win in the Premier League continued last week with a 1-1 draw away at Everton in a game that was a good contest. The Blades come into this tough away game having landed their first win of the season last week thanks to a last gasp penalty against Wolves, but I think that this may too big a task for them here. I envisage Brighton finally getting back to winning ways in this one. Tip – Brighton 2-0 Sheffield United – 15/2.

  • Liverpool v Brentford

After being held at Luton last week, Liverpool will view that as two points lost rather than a point gained, especially with Spurs, Arsenal and Aston Villa all losing this past week. At Anfield though, Liverpool have been rock solid this season and they face a Brentford side whose form has been a little patchy at times but who come into this game having won all of their last three. That said, I can’t see anything other than a home win here at Anfield on Sunday. Tip – Liverpool 3-1 Brentford – 11/1.

  • West Ham v Nottingham Forest

West Ham come into this game badly needing a result in the Premier League where they are without a win in four and have lost all their last three. They now lie just a point ahead of Nottingham Forest in the table after Forest earned a 2-0 win over Aston Villa last time out. Steve Cooper’s team have been playing some good football of late and they have some talented players but it is tough to get a result at West Ham and I think the Hammers will just squeak the win here. Tip – West Ham 2-1 Nottingham Forest – 17/2.

  • Chelsea v Manchester City

After their incredible 4-1 win at Spurs which saw two players sent off for Spurs, plus two more injured, Chelsea will now be hoping their luck continues to hold as they take on a Manchester City side who have been in good form of late and who smashed six past Bournemouth last weekend. Chelsea’s home form has been sketchy this season to say the least and City are on a roll, which means I can only see one outcome here. Tip – Chelsea 0-2 Manchester City – 17/2.
