Archived Premier League football betting tips (22nd to 24th Nov 2008)

Sat 3:00 Chelsea v Newcastle
  After the international friendlies, a whole host of Chelsea stars face late fitness tests before this fixture but most should be available for selection. Drogba is banned leaving the way open for Anelka to continue his dazzling goalscoring form of 8 goals from Chelsea's last 4 Premier league fixtures. The Blues lead the charge to the title but are neck and neck with Liverpool although their +28 goal difference is worth an extra point. Newcastle travel to Stamford Bridge after allowing old boy, Titus Bramble, to equalise in the penultimate minute for Wigan at St James Park. That result leaves them just one place above the drop zone on goal difference. That game also saw Barton damage knee ligaments and he could be out for 2 months. Additionally, Owen is struggling to displace Ameobi or Martins in the starting lineup. the Magpies have taken just 2 points from their 6 away fixtures and this looks like a nailed on victory for Scolari's side.
Home Win 3-0
  Liverpool v Fulham
  Liverpool are one of only 2 Premier league sides to remain undefeated at home and will want to notch another win as they bid to keep tabs on Chelsea in the title race. Gerrard should return to the starting eleven after missing England's victory in Berlin. Benitez has no fresh injury concerns but his rotation policy, despite being more conservative in Premier league matches, has allegedly failed to keep everyone happy; Benayoun being a case in point. They entertain a Fulham side rightly labelled as the worst Premier league away side with just 1 point from 5 games. However, their home form has been as good as any of the top sides and is keeping them in mid-table. Given Fulham's away form though, this looks like being one way traffic for Liverpool.
Home Win 2-0
  Man City v Arsenal
  The big news after the international friendlies is that Arsene Wenger is once again unhappy; this time because Walcott suffered a disclocated shoulder whilst away with the national side and faces 3 months on the sidelines after undergoing surgery. Missing one of their most offensive players will be a big blow but the Gunners need to improve on recent results. Despite beating United at the Emirates, Arsenal have lost 4 games already this season (at home to Villa and Hull, away at Stoke and Fulham) and dropped points in 2 others. They still cling on to fourth place but face a tough test away at Eastlands. City have won half and lost half their home games and their strong attacking lineup will be keen to have a go at Arsenal; however, caution should be urged as the Gunners are a potent counter-attacking side. A tough one to call but City should be fancied to add to Arsenal's woes.
Home Win 2-1
  Middlesbrough v Bolton
  Since the heavy battering at Chelsea, Boro have now gone 5 games without defeat. Southgate admits that his side have looked a lot stronger in recent weeks and that was underlined by Stewart Downing's exemplary performance for England during the week. Things will really be looking up when Alves starts finding the back of the net again. They host a Bolton side that have climbed out of the bottom three courtesy of 2 victories from their last 3 away fixtures. However, they still lack a striker that's going to bag them a decent amount of goals; hence they have to rely on midfielders like Taylor and Nolan contributing more than their fair share. The Trotters still look like a relegation threatened side but Boro are at long last are showing signs of moving in the right direction and should be capable of taking maximum points.
Home Win 2-0
  Portsmouth v Hull
  Some think the Hull bubble may have burst after just 1 point from their last 4 games but recent games have shown that the Tigers have the players to compete at this level; defeats to Chelsea and United were expected but they picked up last weekend with a valuable point at home to Man City. Hull have won 4 of their 6 away fixtures and travel to Fratton Park where Pompey are still to win under new manger, Tony Adams. Portsmouth have secured points away from home recently with a win at Sunderland and a draw at Upton Park but Adams will be keen to get the home fans behind him. However, Hull should not be underestimated and think they will pose enough problems to take a point back home.
Draw 1-1
  Stoke v West Brom
  Stoke hope to take maximum points off bottom side, West Brom, in their own bid to stave off the threat of relegation. The Potters lie in 15th position and it's their home form that's keeping them out of the bottom three; successive home victories over Arsenal, Sunderland and Spurs are the high points amongst heavy defeats at Old Trafford and Eastlands. This is definitely a contest of substance against style as Stoke aim to condemn the Baggies to a third successive defeat. Three goal defeats at Anfield and at home to Chelsea haven't been great for West Brom's confidence and they've lost their last 3 fixtures on the road. This game was probably seen as a 6 pointer at the beginning of the season and not a lot's changed; however, Stoke's substance should carry the day.
Home Win 2-0
Sat 5:30 Aston Villa v Man Utd
  The Emirates is no longer the fortress it once was as Villa proved last weekend by winning to the tune of 2 goals without reply. That result took the Villans to level on 23 points with Arsenal and victory over United could well see them move to 3rd in the table as long as they better Arsenal's result at City. However, Villa haven't had the best of results against United in recent seasons and with Fergie's team 8 points off the pace set by Chelsea and Liverpool, the likelihood is that United's players will be fired up. No doubt, some of United's key players will return from injury after missing the midweek international fixtures but their away form needs to improve having won just 2 of their games on the road. United always look dangerous and if they're in the mood they should win.
Away Win 1-2
Sun 1:30 Tottenham v Blackburn
  Last weekend, Fulham inflicted Harry Redknapp's first defeat as Tottenham manager with goalkeeper, Gomes, taking a fair share of the blame after gifting the Cottagers the first goal. However, Gomes is unlikely to lose his place as competition for the keeper's shirt is in short supply. To add to Harry's woes, orchestrator Modric is out for 2 weeks after partially tearing his groin. Spurs have won their last 2 home games and host a Blackburn side that have taken just 3 points from their last 7 Premier league fixtures and have now slipped into the bottom three; just a point above Spurs. Despite their recent poor run, Rovers have only lost twice on the road and will run their opponents close. Assuming Gomes makes no gifts, Spurs should edge the points.
Home Win 2-1
Sun 4:00 Sunderland v West Ham
  Only 1 point separates these 2 sides in mid-table. Sunderland finally won away at Ewood Park after losing 3 successive games following the victory over local rivals, Newcastle, but the Hammers have been sliding in the wrong direction after taking just 2 points from their last 7 Premier league fixtures. The Mackems have Kenwynne Jones back and since his return from injury, the striker has scored twice in 2 games. West Ham, however, are finding goals difficult to come by with just 3 scored in their last 7 outings; ironically, Bellamy managed to conjure up the winner for Wales in Denmark and maybe that will help his domestic form. Sunderland look more likely to score and maybe that will be enough to take all 3 points.
Home Win 1-0
Mon 8:00 Wigan v Everton
  The Latics have had a real mixed bag of results this season and have failed to put together a decent run despite playing well on numerous occasions. Their home form has been poor with just 1 victory and 3 defeats from 6 attempts. Both Heskey (hamstring) and Zaki (virus) remain doubts for this game leaving Bruce short on attacking options. They host an Everton side that have been impressive away from Goodison this season having won 4 of their 6 fixtures on the road. Moyes has a powerful lineup now that everyone is fit and 5 successive games without defeat makes them a credible candidate for European football next season. The Toffees are used to winning on the road and Wigan are likely to come unstuck.
Away Win 0-1
