Another solid set of results last week as we landed six of the ten game results correctly and we also landed a very nice correct score winner in the Cardiff City v Wolves match. It could have been even better as we were just one goal out on four other games in the Premier League too when it came to the Correct Score market, which would have been a huge payday.

Still, we did also land a number of correct goalscorer bets, with Jamies Vardy and Harry Kane in particular obliging. So overall, it was an especially positive weekend with the return of 14/1 on the Cardiff v Wolves correct score bet of 2-1 to Cardiff being my biggest earner.

Last weekend was derby day in the Premier League on Sunday and there were three dramatic games. Fulham worked hard but eventually went down to a 2-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge to Chelsea, but the real drama of the day came in the other two games.

First up Arsenal produced a scintillating display to defeat Tottenham 4-2 at the Emirates, the Gunners went 1-0 up before they then went behind 2-1 in the first half, but second half goals from Aubameyang (who also netted the opener), Lacazette and Torreira handed Arsenal a superb victory in what was the best Premier League game of the season so far.

Then at Anfield, a very even Merseyside derby seemed destined to end in a draw, but in the 96th minute, Jordan Pickford’s inability to deal with Virgil van Dijk’s mishit volley saw the Everton keeper fumble the ball onto the bar, where it bounced down allowing Liverpool’s forgotten striker, Divock Origi, to head into the net and snatch an unlikely and undeserved, but crucial win for Jurgen Klopp’s team.

With Manchester City easily beating Bournemouth on the Saturday, that win for Liverpool keeps them hot on City’s tails just two points behind them and the Reds are now five points clear of Chelsea in third place in the table, which emphasises just how important that late Origi goal was in the scheme of things in the Premier Leaue.

Outlined below are the results from Matchday 14, together with the current league table and the leading goalscorers chart, which now has a new face at the top. Underneath that will be our tips for the midweek set of Premier League fixtures this week.

The first of this week’s action in the Premier League takes place in midweek with Matchday 14, four games take place on Tuesday night, while the remaining six matches all take place on the Wednesday evening. The big game of the two days of action is on Wednesday and sees Manchester United facing Arsenal in what should be a cracker at Old Trafford. Manchester City will be confident of picking up another win away to a Watford side in somewhat poor form at the moment, while Liverpool face a struggling Burnley in another game the Reds will feel they should win.

*Odds shown were correct as of 12pm on Monday 3rd December 2018

  • Bournemouth v Huddersfield Town

Bournemouth have lost all of their last four, but I am backing them to get back to winning ways here against a Huddersfield Town who I felt were unlucky to be reduced to 10-men against Brighton at the weekend, a decision which I believe cost them the three points. The Terriers are not the best on the road and with Bournemouth needing a win, I fancy the home side to get precisely that on Tuesday night.

Full Time Result – Bournemouth to win – 3/4

Correct Score – Bournemouth 2-0 Huddersfield Town – 15/2

Anytime Goalscorer – Joshua King (Bournemouth) – 7/4

  • Brighton v Crystal Palace

These two clubs share a fierce rivalry and this game will be played in a derby-like atmosphere on the south coast. Brighton have good home form, but Palace’s form is improving and they are starting to take some of the chances they create. This should be a good game but I think that Palace are strong enough to come away with a solid point on the night.

Full Time Result – Draw – 21/10

Correct Score – Brighton 1-1 Crystal Palace – 5/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Glenn Murray (Brighton) – 2/1

  • West Ham v Cardiff City

After a somewhat inconsistent start to the season, West Ham’s form of late is much improved and that doesn’t bode well for a Cardiff City team that have struggled to pick up points on the road this season. With West Ham confident after a 3-0 win over Newcastle, I am backing the Hammers to do a similar job on Cardiff this evening.

Full Time Result – West Ham to win – 7/10

Correct Score – West Ham 2-0 Cardiff City – 8/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Marko Arnautovic (West Ham) – 11/10

  • Watford v Manchester City

It is worth remembering that Watford have beaten Tottenham at home this season but they also have lost to Chelsea and Liverpool and with City being stronger than either of those two sides, and in brilliant form, you cannot back against Manchester City racking up another comfortable win and three points here.

Full Time Result – Manchester City to win – 3/10

Correct Score – Watford 0-3 Manchester City – 17/2

Anytime Goalscorer – Riyad Mahrez (Man City) – 21/20

  • Burnley v Liverpool

There’s no denying that Liverpool were very fortunate to win the Merseyside derby at the weekend, while Burnley went down to another defeat away to Palace. This is the last match Sean Dyche would have wanted, aside from facing Manchester City, and it is hard to see Burnley’s toothless attack enjoying much joy against the Liverpool back line. I am expecting a Reds win in this one.

Full Time Result – Liverpool to win – 2/7

Correct Score – Burnley 0-2 Liverpool – 11/2

Anytime Goalscorer – James Milner (Liverpool) – 11/4

  • Everton v Newcastle United

Everton fans will have been gutted by the manner of their defeat at the weekend, but so will Newcastle who saw West Ham come away with a 3-0 win from their trip to St James’ Park. Everton away is a tough game and Newcastle’s record against the Toffees is woeful over recent times. As such I am backing Everton to bounce back with a win here.

Full Time Result – Everton to win – 3/5

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

Anytime Goalscorer – Richarlison (Everton) – 5/4

  • Fulham v Leicester City

Claudio Ranieri will welcome the team he took to the Premier League title back in 2016 to Craven Cottage this evening in what should be a good game between two sides that have struggled defensively at times this season. As such, this is a game where I can see plenty of goals being score, but where I do feel that the home side will just about scrape a point.

Full Time Result – Draw – 5/2

Correct Score – Fulham 2-2 Leicester City – 12/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Aleksandar Mitrovic (Fulham) – 6/4

  • Wolves v Chelsea

Chelsea got back to winning ways at the weekend while Wolves went down to their fifth defeat in six Premier League games. As such, it is hard to see Nuno Santo’s men producing a performance that they did against Man City and Man Utd to earn a point from this one. Chelsea should be confident of securing a win and I think that is precisely what they will do.

Full Time Result – Chelsea to win – 3/4

Correct Score – Wolves 1-2 Chelsea – 8/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Olivier Giroud (Chelsea) – 7/5

  • Manchester United v Arsenal

Arsenal’s unbeaten run of 19 games continued at the weekend with a superb 4-2 win over Tottenham, but they head north to take on a Manchester united side that they have a very poor record against, especially at Old Trafford. United though are in poor form, without a win in three Premier League games and the pressure is really mounting on Jose Mourinho. As such, this one I think has the hallmarks of an entertaining draw.

Full Time Result – Draw – 13/5

Correct Score – Manchester United 1-1 Arsenal – 6/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Henrikh Mkhitaryan (Arsenal) – 2/1

  • Tottenham v Southampton

After a disappointing defeat to Arsenal, Spurs will want to bounce back at home against a Southampton side who surrendered a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 with Manchester United at home at the weekend. The Saints have been weak on the road this season and have won just once all season long. I can’t see them improving their record any in this fixture.

Full Time Result – Tottenham to win – 2/5

Correct Score – Tottenham 4-0 Southampton – 16/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Heung-Min Son (Tottenham) – 7/5
