After a couple of weeks off due to the International break, the Premier League swings back into action this weekend at the start of a series of games that will take us through right until the end of the season. With eight games to go for many teams (seven for some), it is the most crucial time of the season regarding their status.

For a few teams, the battle is on for a place in the top four and a prospective Champions League place next season. Others are chasing Europa League places, while a few sit in mid-table effectively in no danger of relegation but unlikely to challenge for the top places.

However, there is an almighty scramble at the foot of the table with a far greater than normal number of teams all in with a real threat of being relegated from the Premier League. It is this battle that will likely see the most twists and turns over the coming weeks before it is eventually decided who will drop into the Championship next season.

Of course, this gives us plenty of opportunity to enjoy a little betting over the next few weeks and once again I highly recommend Coral Sport as the service to use. Not only does the site offer a fantastic Welcome Bonus for new players, there is often an additional Sign Up offer available when a big match is being played and of course, you can take advantage of their Free £10 Bet Club each week (by making £25 worth of qualifying bets) and of course their 4+ Acca Boost promotion on all your football accumulators.

So, let’s begin this week by taking a look at the full Premier League fixture list for the weekend.

This Weekend’s Coral 4+ Acca Boost Tip

What I’ve done is look through this weekend’s fixture list and come up with a fourfold accumulator bet that fits in with the criteria for Coral’s 4+ Acca Boost promotion. I’ve tried to pick some longer than usual odds selections for some matches to ensure that the bet will pay off handsomely if it lands.

My selections for this weekend are as follows:

  • Brighton v Leicester City – Draw at 21/10
  • West Brom v Burnley – Away Win at 19/10
  • Everton v Man City – Man City to win and both teams to score at 2/1
  • Chelsea v Tottenham – Away Win at 21/10

At the moment you can get odds of 83.61/1 on this accumulator with Coral Sport and that means a £10 stake would offer you a massive return of £836.10. In addition, as part of the 4+ Acca Boost promotion, you would also receive a free bet worth £83.61 as part of this offer from Coral.

The Big Weekend Match Previews and Tips

  • Crystal Palace v Liverpool

This is a huge game at Selhurst Park for two reasons, Palace need the points to aid their quest to remain in the Premier League against a team that they have a pretty good record against in recent times. Their visitors, Liverpool, also require the points to help them remain in the top four places of the Premier League. Indeed a win here would put the Reds in second place in the table, albeit having played a couple of games more than their nearest rivals.

The teams met earlier in the season at Anfield and it took a 73rd minute strike from Sadio Mane to earn Liverpool a narrow 1-0 win, but Palace missed a number of good chances to have at least earned a point from that game, a fact that Liverpool will be all-too well aware of.

The key to this game will be how well Palace’s back line can cope with Liverpool’s attacking trio. If they can keep them quiet the home side have a chance, but my money is on Firmino, Mane and Salah firing the goals to keep Liverpool in the race for second place.

Top Tip: Anytime Goalscorer – Roberto Firmino (23/20 with Coral)

  • Everton v Manchester City

Manchester City don’t have the best of records on Merseyside although their record at Goodison is better than at Anfield in recent years. Everton won this fixture 4-0 last season but you will get long odds on a repeat of that on Saturday.

The Toffees have not enjoyed the best of seasons and while their home form has catapulted them up the table into mid-table safety, they are still not playing the brand of football their fans would like and their away form remains a real concern.

The problem is they face a Manchester City side who have been simply brilliant this season and who know two wins from their next two games seals them the title. Pep Guardiola’s men would love to do that home next weekend at home to Manchester United and I think in order for that to stand a chance occur, City will produce the goods and get a win here.

Top Tip: Man City to win and both teams to score (2/1 with Coral)

  • Chelsea v Tottenham Hotspur

The biggest game of the weekend though takes place at Stamford Bridge where Chelsea enjoy a long unbeaten record against Tottenham. However, that could well be under threat this weekend with Spurs coming into this game in great form domestically, while Chelsea have endured some struggles over recent weeks, seeing them drop to fifth in the table.

The home side did win the return fixture between the teams 2-1 at Wembley in August, but since then Spurs have improved a great deal while the mood at Stamford Bridge under Antonio Conte at the moment is very difficult to ascertain, sometimes the team plays well, but others they seem lethargic and almost disinterested.

This is a game I think Chelsea must win but I think Spurs have the capability to end this long run of games without a win and I am backing them to win this one.

Top Tip: Spurs to win and both teams to score (5/1 with Coral)
