We had a very good set of results in the Premier League the last time out, we correctly predicted the score of both the Cardiff City v Brighton match (10/1) and the Manchester City v Manchester United game (11/1) which offered us massive returns on those bets.

Furthermore, we landed a full house in both those games with all three bets coming in, while we also landed winners in a number of other games and bets, which all made for a very profitable and enjoyable weekend at the expense of the bookmakers.

Although the last weekend of fixtures in the Premier League was two weeks ago, the result of the big game of the weekend remains fresh in the memory with Manchester City retaining top spot in the title race following an impressive and richly deserved 3-1 win over local rivals Manchester United.

They leapfrogged Liverpool at the top of the table, after the Anfield side had jumped to the top following a somewhat pedestrian 2-0 win over Fulham at Anfield earlier in the day. Chelsea though dropped down to third behind the Reds after they were held at home by a battling Everton display, with the Toffees likely to be delighted with their point earned in a 0-0 draw.

Spurs may have won away at Crystal Palace, but Arsenal drew their second home game in a row in the competition after Wolves came to the Emirates and almost snatched a win, before the Gunners managed a late equaliser through Henrik Mkhitaryan.

It was a big week for Newcastle and Cardiff City too who both landed vital wins at the foot of the table, while Huddersfield also picked up a point from their home game with West Ham, as did Southampton who drew at home to Watford.

Following these games, the big teams are in action once again in the Champions League and it will be interesting to see how the teams selected across the next week or so are adapted to cope with the additional pressure of what are now becoming crucial fixtures at this juncture of the tournament.

Premier League Matchday 13 Preview and Tips

  • Brighton v Leicester City – Draw

It has been a torrid and emotional two weeks for Leicester City but they have come through it with four points from their Premier league games, however I feel a trip to Brighton is a big ask, especially with an international week beforehand and Harry Maguire out injured. I fancy Glenn Murray to be the main man for the Seagulls as they claim another narrow home win.

Full Time Result – Brighton to win – 9/5

Correct Score – Brighton 2-1 Leicester City – 11/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Glenn Murray (Brighton) – 7/4

  • Everton v Cardiff City – Home Win

Both these teams had pleasing results coming into this game, but away from home Cardiff have struggled in the Premier League this season and with Everton in pretty good form at the moment, I am backing the Toffees to secure a big three points to move them closer in contention in the top half of the table, which is where they should really be.

Full Time Result – Everton to win – 2/5

Correct Score – Everton 3-1 Cardiff City – 12/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Richarlison (Everton) – 11/10

  • Fulham v Southampton – Draw

No, I haven’t gone crazy, I have backed Fulham to win this game despite an abysmal run of form. The reasons being, firstly they are playing a Southampton side, at home, that I feel are not much better than they are and secondly, the Claudio Ranieri effect as when a top manager joins a struggling club, you often see a dramatic upturn in performance and given the players they have and their opponent, that is what I am expecting on Saturday at Craven Cottage.

Full Time Result – Fulham to win – 31/20

Correct Score – Fulham 2-1 Southampton – 10/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Andre Schurrle (Fulham) – 11/4

  • Manchester United v Crystal Palace – Home Win

Losing to Man City and Tottenham means both these teams come into this game on the back of a defeat and that puts added pressure on both managers, but more so Jose Mourinho with his team as the home side. Palace do look very good at times, but they cannot turn these performances into points which much be hugely frustrating for Roy Hodgson. United should win this one comfortably.

Full Time Result – Manchester United to win – 4/11

Correct Score – Manchester United 2-0 Crystal Palace – 6/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Anthony Martial (Man Utd) – 6/4

  • Watford v Liverpool – Away Win

The Hornets have started the season well once again and they have beaten Spurs at home earlier this season. However, Liverpool look much stronger defensively and I think that has been the cornerstone of their success this season. The Liverpool attack is still not firing on all cylinders as yet and if they are going to keep up the challenge to City, they are going to need to sooner rather than later. That said, I feel their defence will be key to them landing another three points here.

Full Time Result – Liverpool to win – 1/2

Correct Score – Watford 0-2 Liverpool – 15/2

Anytime Goalscorer – Sadio Mane (Liverpool) – 7/5

  • West Ham v Manchester City – Away Win

Victory over Manchester United and a draw with Chelsea show what West Ham can do at home, but Manchester City are playing so well at the moment, that it is difficult to see them losing to any team at all. The Hammers can mix things up and do have an ex-City manager as their man in charge, but in truth, I think City will once again produce another fine performance and win this game relatively easily, whatever team West Ham put out.

Full Time Result – Manchester City to win – 2/9

Correct Score – West Ham 1-3 Manchester City – 11/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Raheem Sterling (Man City) – 6/5

  • Tottenham v Chelsea – Draw

Without doubt the biggest game of the weekend is also a London derby. This is a game that Chelsea have enjoyed greater success in of late, but Spurs at home are a very tricky opponent. I feel Spurs should have drawn with Manchester City earlier on in the season and with this game coming straight after an international break, I don’t think either manager will be too unhappy if the teams share the spoils on Saturday evening.

Full Time Result – Draw – 12/5

Correct Score – Tottenham 1-1 Chelsea – 6/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Eden Hazard (Chelsea) – 7/5

  • Bournemouth v Arsenal – Away Win

Arsenal were forced to wait until the last minute to secure a point with Wolves last time out whereas Bournemouth were defeated by Newcastle, so this is a big game for the two teams occupying the last two spaces in the top six. Bournemouth have struggled though against the better quality teams in the Premier League this season and with Arsenal’s pace on the counter, I think it will be that which inspires the Gunners claim a good win on the south coast.

Full Time Result – Arsenal to win – Evens

Correct Score – Bournemouth 1-2 Arsenal – 17/2

Anytime Goalscorer – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal) – 11/10

  • Wolves v Huddersfield Town – Home Win

Wolves put in a fine display away to Arsenal last time out and were unlucky not to land a victory from that game. Huddersfield have picked up four points from the last six available, but this is a really tough trip for David Wagner’s men and with Wolves playing as they did away to Arsenal, I fancy them to get the points at home.

Full Time Result – Wolves to win – 4/9

Correct Score – Wolves 2-0 Huddersfield Town – 11/2

Anytime Goalscorer – Raul Jiminez (Wolves) – 6/4

  • Burnley v Newcastle United – Draw

Burnley’s form has been erratic this season, both at home and away and their defensive poise of last year seems all but gone this time around. Newcastle come into the game on the back of two wins and with a very solid defensive unit and with Burnley’s strikers looking toothless, I fancy this game has all the hallmarks of a 0-0 draw.

Full Time Result – Draw – 11/5

Correct Score – Burnley 0-0 Newcastle United – 13/2

Anytime Goalscorer – No Goalscorer – 13/2
