Archived Premier League football betting tips (28th to 29th Oct 2008)

Tues 7:45 Newcastle v West Brom
  The Magpies narrowly lost out to bitter rivals, Sunderland, at the Stadium of Light for the first time since 1980 and failed to make any ground on the clubs above them. The players already know they are facing a relegation battle and need to overcome the derby hangover before Tuesday night's must win game against West Brom. With any luck, Michael Owen could play some part and Barton could well start as he strives to put his demons behind him (kissing his badge at Sunderland wasn't the most sensible action when trying to set yourself up as a role model). Their opponents, West Brom, were soundly beaten at home by Hull in a decisive 19 minute second half spell but have taken 3 points in the northeast already this season at Boro. Both sides' heads will be low after the weekend but Newcastle have improved under Kinnear and will be looking for their second win of the season.
Home Win 1-0
Wed 7:45 Aston Villa v Blackburn
  Villa were convincing winners at the JJB at the weekend and Carew and Agbonlahor judged fit to play undoubtedly made the difference. The Villans are one of only 3 Premier league sides yet to suffer defeat at home and though they have a slight injury concern over Gareth Barry, they shouldn't relinquish their home record to a visiting Blackburn side. McCarthy came off the bench at home to Boro and headed an injury time equaliser to give Blackburn a share of the spoils. It was the South African's first goal in open play for a year and a sign that he's getting back to his best and forcing his name on the teamsheet. Rovers have beaten Everton and Newcastle on the road but they'll find Villa a tougher proposition and points for the away side are unlikely.
Home Win 2-1
  Fulham v Wigan
  Roy Hodgson's men registered their first away point of the season when they visited Fratton Park last weekend. Some would argue that it may have been a good time to play Portsmouth but it was a case of chances missed for the home side. After going behind, Fulham picked themselves up and played well although it was dicey after Dempsey equalised. The Cottagers look like they'll be fighting to avoid relegation as they go into a 6 pointer against a Wigan side immediately above them by virtue of goals scored. The Latics were heavily defeated at home by Villa and Bruce admitted that his side hadn't defended well with bad mistakes costing them. So, it's back to basics when Wigan travel to Craven Cottage but Fulham will be looking to turn successive draws into 3 points.
Home Win 2-1
  Hull v Chelsea
  To reach the 20 point mark after just 9 games is a phenomenal achievement by Phil Brown's side. Though their Premier league status is not mathematically assured they shouldn't have to worry about relegation and can enjoy their football; however the manager will be keen to ensure that their feet remain firmly on the ground. Hull have lost just the once this season (a 0-5 beating at home to Wigan) but they'll have to be organised for the full 90 minutes when a wounded Chelsea come to town. The Blues lost their 86 game unbeaten home record to Liverpool at the weekend immediately after Scolari associated the word 'invincible' with his side. Chelsea have won all 4 of their away fixtures scoring 11 goals and conceding just the one; this could be a reality check for Hull City but Liverpool showed that if you stay focused and organised, Chelsea won't necessarily find it easy to break you down. The Hull fairytale isn't over but a result against Chelsea seems a bridge too far.
Away Win 0-2
  Stoke v Sunderland
  Stoke were overrun in the second half at Eastlands and Sorensen can be thanked for keeping the score down to just three. The Potters are still stuck in the relegation places but defeat at home to the Mackems could see them drop to the bottom if other results go against them. Sunderland will be on a high after beating local rivals, Newcastle, at home for the first time since 1980. After his luck deserted him at Craven Cottage, Kieron Richardson scored the winner from a free kick but it was Kenwynne Jones's arrival on 57 minutes that heralds much for the future. The front man has been out since England's game against Trinidad & Tobago and is likely to make life hell for the Stoke back line. Keane is putting together a talented side and more importantly, the Newcastle result showed that they want to play for the club. The 3 points should go in Sunderland's favour.
Away Win 1-2
Wed 8:00 Arsenal v Tottenham
  No sooner had Ramos got the dreaded vote of confidence from the chairman than do we find out he's sacked and in steps Harry Redknapp; the clearout has been complete with Ramos's backroom staff and Comolli going with Spurs returning to an orthodox management structure. Spurs are still bottom and the only way is up; however, Redknapp's magic worked immediately as they registered their first Premier league win of the season and what better timing than just before they travel to the Emirates. Arsenal have lost at home to Hull and away at Fulham this season so maybe there is a ray of hope for Spurs. Adebayor came off the bench to snatch victory for the Gunners at Upton Park last weekend but is certain to start against their north London counterparts. This game has probably come too early for Harry with Arsenal eager not to lose ground to Chelsea and Liverpool.
Home Win 2-0
  Bolton v Everton
  The Trotters won't be happy at giving Spurs their first Premier league victory of the season and it now seems the Bolton faithful are losing patience with manager Gary Megson. McCann's dismissal at White Hart Lane means he'll be unavailable as they strive to fight off the threat of relegation. At the Reebok, Bolton have only lost to Arsenal but Everton's form on the road has been good with 7 points from a possible 12. The Toffees showed fighting spirit against United last weekend when they fought back valiantly to claim a point and if they can carry that through to Wednesday's game, there's no reason why they can't add to Bolton's problems.
Away Win 0-1
  Liverpool v Portsmouth
  The big job at Liverpool now is to ensure that the players don't rest on their laurels as they move 3 points clear at the top of the table after breaking Chelsea's 86 home game undefeated record. Records are there to be broken but the Reds have finally shown their true colours and made everyone aware of their title credentials. They remain the only undefeated Premier league side after 9 games in although they have rescued results in the last 10 minutes on no less than 4 occasions this season. They host a Portsmouth side without Harry Redknapp to guide them and Adams & Jordan in charge for the short term. Redknapp's departure didn't seem to affect the players too adversely in their draw against Fulham but it'll be difficult replacing the passion and energy that Redknapp brought to the side. Pompey have only won once on the road this season (0-3 at Everton) and it'll be a tough ask against a very confident Liverpool side.
Home Win 2-0
  Man Utd v West Ham
  United have stuttered just when you least expected them to with a draw at Everton and now 8 points separates them from league leaders, Liverpool. After going a goal up at Goodison, United were taken aback by Everton's response in the second half and were probably expecting the blue half of Merseyside to roll over. Fergie's men haven't lost at home this season and are very impressive once they get their game going. West Ham visit Old Trafford with Carlton Cole suspended after his ridculous red card against Arsenal; with Ashton out injured, Bellamy could be joined by Sears to lead the line. The Hammers have had mixed fortunes this season although Zola hasn't had that much luck since taking over. That statistic's hardly likely to improve at Old Trafford either.
Home Win 2-0
  Middlesbrough v Man City
  Boro have conceded a goal in the last 15 minutes on 7 occasions so far this season and Blackburn were the fourth side to score in injury time against them to deprive them of the 3 points. However, they still find themselves in mid-table and Southgate seems fairly philsophical about the situation. They'll have to keep an eye on hat-trick hero, Robinho, after his performance against Stoke. City have so far failed to match expectations on the road and have registered just 4 points from 4 fixtures but Hughes is convinced his side have improved defensively, are stronger and look devastating on the counter. Boro are probably also a better side than results suggest and this could end in stalemate.
Draw 1-1
