Archived Premier League football betting tips (8th to 9th Nov 2008)

Sat 12:45 Arsenal v Man Utd
  The weekend kicks off with undoubtedly the pick of the action. Fourth plays third at the Emirates as both sides look to make up ground on Chelsea and Liverpool. Whilst United are progressing up the table after a disappointing start, Arsenal are running into injury problems and the wisdom of having a squad lacking in depth and experience has been questioned. Wenger's recent outbursts show he's feeling the pressure and defeats against Fulham, Hull and Stoke plus recent home draws against Spurs and Fenerbahce have seen their confidence take a knock. Once again they've been guilty of missing chances but leaked goals has resulted in dropped points. Adebayor, van Persie and Sagna are all out with Walcott and Gallas major doubts. United rested some of their big names for the majority of the Celtic game with this fixture in mind, and there's not probably been a better time to play the Gunners.
Away Win 0-1
  Wigan v Stoke
  Both clubs were big winners last weekend; Wigan nicked victory at Fratton Park in injury time and Stoke outmuscled Arsenal at the Britannia with a convincing display. Both are no longer in the bottom three although the table is very tight with only 6 points separating 7th from bottom after 11 games. Wigan have been playing well but have too often been undermined by schoolboy errors; cutting out the cockups should see them climb the table. Stoke's 4th win at home (against Arsenal) this season will have given them a confidence boost but they've only taken 1 point on the road and the Latics should be better equipped to deal with the Potters' physical style of play.
Home Win 2-1
Sat 3:00 Hull v Bolton
  The Tigers took no points from their last 2 games (at home to Chelsea and away at Old Trafford) but still hold a top six position and had United on the ropes after coming back from 4-1 down to eventually lose 4-3. Hull have already far outperformed what was expected of them but they're not a side to rest on their laurels and will want to get back to winning ways against Bolton. The Trotters are still in the bottom three despite winning at home to City and Megson will be pleased his side scored after going 3 matches without a single goal; that said, their strikers aren't fulfilling their end of the bargain. Captain Nolan is suspended but Elmander (just a single goal since signing for Bolton) could return after injury. However, Hull have proved their mettle and are likely to keep the Trotters in the drop zone.
Home Win 2-0
  Sunderland v Portsmouth
  Sunderland have to recover after the 5 goal mauling at Stamford Bridge where the gulf between the league leaders and Roy Keane's side was there for all to see. Since the euphoria of the derby win over Newcastle they've also lost to a single goal at the Britannia. The Mackems form at the Stadium of Light has been mixed with 7 points from 5 games. They face a Pompey side whose luck appears to have deserted them around the time that Redknapp departed for Spurs. Adams is still seeking his first victory and appears to be looking over his shoulder already as he strives to pull together a coaching staff of ex-Arsenal colleagues. Portsmouth have lost 3 of their 5 away fixtures but a point at Sunderland wouldn't be a bad result.
Draw 1-1
  West Ham v Everton
  Only 2 points separate these 2 sides but Everton seem to climbing the table where as the Hammers appear to be gradually sinking. Zola is finding his first management role more tiring than expected but his side's first point (at Boro) on the back of 4 successive defeats was probably scant reward after nearly stealing all 3 in injury time. West Ham's injury problems continue to hamper their progress but they'll need to be at their best against an Everton side that have dropped just 5 points on the road. The Toffees are without their joint top scorer, Fellaini, who's suspended but they've no other injury worries. The injury prone Saha finally got his first goal for the club against Fulham and Moyes' men finally looked like they were playing as a team. Everton have left it late to take all 3 points in their last 2 games and they're capable of a repeat result at Upton Park.
Away Win 0-1
Sat 5:30 Liverpool v West Brom
  Liverpool relinquished a 3 point advantage and their place at the top of the table after going down at White Hart Lane after leading by a goal at half time. They should have had the game wrapped up early in the second half but the Reds failed to take their chances; Torres has been missed but should return this weekend if deemed fit. Benitez's men were also fortunate to escape defeat at home to Atletico Madrid after Gerrard netted a late penalty; Liverpool's luck hasn't run out just yet. They host a West Brom side that now find themselves in relegation territory; touted as the best footballing side in the Championship counts for little in the Premier league. The Baggies have taken just 4 points on the road and could find themselves bottom of the pile after the weekend if other results go against them.
Home Win 2-0
Sun 1:30 Blackburn v Chelsea
  Blackburn face a wounded Chelsea side after the Blues were convincingly defeated in Europe during the week. Last time Chelsea were defeated (0-1 by Liverpool), Scolari's men responded with thumping victories at Hull and at home against Sunderland to take them back to the top of the table. The dressing room after the Roma defeat won't have been a happy one and Rovers are likely to feel the backlash. Paul Ince's men look like facing Chelsea without McCarthy who's suspended after being sent off at West Brom, and Santa Cruz who's out with a calf injury. Keith Andrews grabbed the headlines after equalising at the Hawthorns but a repeat looks unlikely against the Blues.
Away Win 0-2
Sun 3:00 Aston Villa v Middlesbrough
  Villa are one of only 3 clubs to maintain their undefeated status at home this season but they were below par in the second half at St James Park on Monday night. O'Neill knows that they need to win these sort of games if they're to close the gap on the big four and force themselves into contention. They entertain a Boro side undefeated in 3 games since the hammering Chelsea dished out at the Riverside. Southgate has been talking up goalkeeper, Ross Turnbull, after he effectively saved a point at home to the Hammers last weekend and he's bound to be busy again this weekend. Just when you think Boro are showing some consistency they usually blow that theory out of the water so I'm plunging for a Villa win.
Home Win 2-1
  Man City v Tottenham
  City seem to be struggling to put together a decent run of results despite their deep pockets (Hughes will be busy in January) and defeat at Bolton made it just 4 points from 6 games on the road. Home form has been a little better but defeats to Chelsea and Liverpool have interrupted 3 victories. They host a Tottenham side buoyed by Harry Redknapp's appointment and yet to taste defeat under their new manager. Redknapp appears to have breathed new life into Ramos's players but has also brought a large slice of luck with him from Fratton Park; the victory over Liverpool owed much to fortune but Spurs should be commended for their fighting spirit right until the end. Other results mean they still prop up the rest of the table with only a win able to lift them off. However, Harry's task should not be underestimated and the trip to Eastlands is unlikely to yield points.
Home Win 2-1
Sun 4:00 Fulham v Newcastle
  The current trend of opting for more traditional English managers such as Redknapp at Spurs and Kinnear at Newcastle appears to be paying off as these clubs aim to climb the table; after all, it's not just about tactics but getting the best out of every player. However, it seems Kinnear has his work cut out with regard to Joey Barton and perish the thought that some youngster will one day look up to him as a role model. The Magpies have secured just 2 points on the road but could welcome back Michael Owen. Newcastle have definitely improved but they travel to Craven Cottage where Fulham's home form is keeping them out of the relegation places. Their away form is so poor that Hodgson knows winning their home games is a must if they are to retain their Premier league status. The Magpies haven't yet done enough to convince they can win on the road and Fulham should take the points.
Home Win 1-0
