We had another fantastic weekend last time out, notably in the Correct Score betting market where we landed three results bang on the money, some at very generous odds, which ensured that we made another healthy profit across the weekend.

Highlights of last week’s tips include:

  • Six Full Time Result bets out of ten coming in
  • Tottenham to beat Huddersfield 2-0 – 6/1
  • Wolves to beat Southampton 2-0 – 7/1
  • Bournemouth to beat Crystal Palace 2-1 – 9/1
  • Eden Hazard anytime goalscorer – 5/4

This weekend is the final week of games in the current batch of matches before the international break with many players moving to various locations with their international teams on Monday. It also comes after a busy week of Champions League and Europa League games and as such, it could well be a pivotal weekend in the title race.

That is because this weekend, which starts on Friday this week with West Ham’s trip to Brighton, will see the unbeaten top two in the Premier League clash at Anfield as Liverpool take on Manchester City in a game that could well have a massive bearing on who eventually wins the title in May 2019. Both sides have won six and drawn one of their seven games so far, though City have a far better goal difference, though it has to be said, they have also faced a considerably easier run of matches in that period than Liverpool.

Other big games this weekend see two out of form sides in the Premier League clash at Old Trafford with Manchester United facing Newcastle United in a game that home fans will see as a must-win game against the Toon Army, who are yet to win in the Premier League this season.

Two of the surprise teams this season, Watford and Bournemouth, also clash at Vicarage Road, while Chelsea face a trip to Southampton and Arsenal have a London derby date with Fulham at Craven Cottage. Tottenham, on the other hand, have what looks like a relatively comfortable home game with Cardiff City at Wembley.

Outlined below is our recap of last weekend’s action, with the latest league table and top goalscorers from the Premier League.

Leading Goalscorers

  • 6 Goals – Eden Hazard (Chelsea)
  • 5 Goals – Aleksandar Mitrovic (Fulham), Harry Kane (Spurs), Sergio Aguero (Man City)
  • 4 Goals – Glenn Murray (Brighton), Marko Arnautovic (West Ham), Raheem Sterling (Man City), Romelu Lukaku (Man Utd), Sadio Mane (Liverpool)

Following on from a Champions League week, a home game is always preferable for the top teams and Liverpool have that advantage over Manchester City this weekend. It’s a massive game at Anfield with the winner (if there is one) heading into the international break unbeaten and also top of the table. Despite a heavy fixture list, I can’t see any teams rotating too many players for this one, although managers may make some changes, especially if their recent form hasn’t been too great.

Premier League Matchday 8

Previews and Tips

  • Brighton v West Ham United

The action begins early this week as on Friday night West Ham travel to Brighton in what should be a decent game. The Hammers are unbeaten in their last four and drew with Chelsea before beating Man Utd in their last two Premier League games. Brighton are decent at home and are well organised but I can’t see them getting the better of an improving West Ham here. However, I also feel they will get something from the game, hence I am backing the draw.

Full Time Result – Draw – 11/5

Correct Score – Brighton 1-1 West Ham – 11/2

Anytime Goalscorer – Anthony Knockaert (Brighton)

  • Burnley v Huddersfield Town

Burnley’s two wins in their last two games have moved them out of the relegation zone and up to the relative comfort of mid-table. They face a Huddersfield Town team struggling at the bottom of the table, conceding far too many goals and also lacking a tangible threat going forward. Given the recent form of both these teams, I see this Lancashire v Yorkshire clash ending in a win for the Red Rose team of Burnley.

Full Time Result – Home Win – 21/20

Correct Score – Burnley 2-0 Huddersfield – 17/2

Anytime Goalscorer – Ashley Barnes (Burnley)

  • Crystal Palace v Wolves

Mamadou Sakho’s moment of madness cost Crystal Palace a point against Bournemouth on Monday and this frustration kind of sums up Palace season, good performances but individual errors costing the team points. I can’t see them turning over a Wolves team that have lost just once in the Premier League this season, although Wolves lack of firepower on the road means that I think Palace will do enough to get a point here.

Full Time Result – Draw – 21/10

Correct Score – Crystal Palace 1-1 Wolves – 11/2

Anytime Goalscorer – Luka Milovojevic (Crystal Palace)

  • Watford v Bournemouth

Two surprise teams in the Premier League this season will do battle at Vicarage Road this weekend and it should be an entertaining game. Both create chances though Bournemouth have been better at taking them of late compared to Watford who have been a little wasteful in front of goal. That said, I am expecting goals here and also a very good game which I feel will end in a higher scoring draw.

Full Time Result – Draw – 5/2

Correct Score – Watford 2-2 Bournemouth – 12/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Andre Gray (Watford)

  • Leicester City v Everton

Both teams had two positive results last weekend, but I was more impressed with the manner of Leicester’s win at Newcastle than Everton’s at Fulham. Everton were somewhat flattered by the 3-0 scoreline, whereas Leicester were not by their 2-0 win. As such, I think Leicester’s pacy and energetic attack will cause a somewhat static Everton back line some real problems here and while it will be close, I am backing the home side to come away with the win.

Full Time Result – Home Win – 5/4

Correct Score – Leicester City 2-1 Everton – 9/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Jamie Vardy (Leicester)

  • Tottenham v Cardiff City

Cardiff are another team in the Premier League without a win this season and the chances of them landing it at Wembley away to Tottenham are slim to say the least. Spurs picked up a good win at Huddersfield last time out and if Christian Eriksen is back in the team from injury, then I feel that Spurs could well notch up a very comfortable win in front of their home fans today.

Full Time Result – Home Win – 1/6

Correct Score – Tottenham 4-0 Cardiff City – 10/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Son Heung-Min (Tottenham)

  • Manchester United v Newcastle United

Both of these teams are really struggling domestically, United losing three games out of seven, Newcastle losing five. Rafa Benitez’ squad have not won yet this season and that is a hugely worrying statistic for Newcastle fans. United’s woeful performances are well documented and things are clearly not right at Old Trafford, but even so, I can’t see any other result here than a win for Jose Mourinho’s men.

Full Time Result – Home Win – 4/9

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

Anytime Goalscorer – Romelu Lukaku (Manchester United)

  • Fulham v Arsenal

Fulham’s defensive record is shocking in the Premier League and they are conceding more than two goals per game on average. Arsenal’s attack has looked much sharper in recent games and that is an unhappy combination of facts for Fulham fans. Their one ray of hope is Arsenal’s somewhat sloppy defensive displays, but even so, while I can see Fulham scoring a goal, I don’t think they’ll be able to keep Arsenal out at the other end and I can see the Gunners grabbing a few goals here.

Full Time Result – Away Win – 4/7

Correct Score – Fulham 1-3 Arsenal – 11/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal)

  • Southampton v Chelsea

After a defeat last week to Wolves, Southampton return home but the task does not get any easier as unbeaten Chelsea are the visitors. Mark Hughes side will have to play as well as West Ham did to get anything from this game, but while West Ham have the players to cause Chelsea problems, I can’t see Southampton having that quality and as such, I see a relatively comfortable win for Chelsea being the outcome.

Full Time Result – Away Win – 4/7

Correct Score – Southampton 0-2 Chelsea – 15/2

Anytime Goalscorer – Olivier Giroud (Chelsea)

  • Liverpool v Manchester City

A potentially huge game at Anfield that could have a significant bearing on where the title ends up at the end of the season. City have a very poor record at Anfield and their last league win came back in 2003. Liverpool have not conceded a Premier League goal at home since February, so I can’t see a repeat of the 4-3 game of last season, however if the Reds stuttering attack can fire, as they tend to in the big games, I do think home advantage will be key at a packed Anfield and the Reds will claim the win.

Full Time Result – Home Win – 11/8

Correct Score – Liverpool 2-1 Manchester City – 10/1

Anytime Goalscorer – Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)
