Archived Premier League football betting tips (7th to 8th Feb 2009)

Sat 12:45 Man City v Middlesbrough
  After all the buzz around Eastlands at the beginning of the transfer window, they've made very few signings and even the experienced Shay Given will be hard-pushed to bring some order to their leaky defence. Craig Bellamy failed to notch on his debut at the Britannia last weekend as City once again lost on the road. At Eastlands their form has been somewhat better and they've won 4 of their last 6 Premier league home fixtures. They host a Boro side experiencing a terrible run of form with no win in 12 Premier league games, 5 successive Premier league defeats on the road and the prospect of relegation only too real. A win would do wonders for the squad's morale but they're unlikely to get anything at City; Gibson's patience is sure to be tested eventually.
Home Win 2-0
Sat 3:00 Blackburn v Aston Villa
  Blackburn have still not lost under Sam Allardyce but Villa are likely to provide his biggest test to date. Rovers still occupy one of the relegation places but the fact that they've managed to hold on to Roque Santa Cruz (at least until the summer) will only boost their chances of staying up. Sam's been reunited with Djouf but one wonders why given his chequered past; the manager must be confident the volatile player can bring something to the table. Their opponents, Villa, are well worth their lofty position and have now opened up a 5 point gap over Arsenal. Six successive Premier league away victories emphasises their counter-attacking strengths on the road and Heskey could prove an astute signing by O'Neill. Blackburn have improved defensively but the pace of Villa is likely to be the difference.
Away Win 0-1
  Chelsea v Hull
  Hull had a great chance to finally get back to winning ways in the home fixture against West Brom; they twice went ahead only to be pulled back each time and one has to question their prospects of maintaining their Premier league status. The Tigers have now slipped into the bottom half of the table and only 5 points separates them from the drop zone. Three successive Premier league defeats on the road is not great recent form to take to Stamford Bridge; especially against a wounded Chelsea. The Blues again suffered defeat against one of their main rivals last weekend when they went down by 2 goals at Anfield. The unfair dismissal of Lampard obviously affected the game but prior to that Chelsea had failed to carve out any decent chances. A victory will boost the Chelsea resolve but the fact remains that United are 5 points ahead with a game in hand.
Home Win 2-0
  Everton v Bolton
  Given that Everton have been a couple of months without their full contingent of strikers, it wasn't surprising to see Moyes move for one in the transfer window though only time will tell if Jo fits the bill. The Toffees may have narrowly lost at Old Trafford (there's no shame there) but prior to that had not been defeated in 7 Premier league fixtures. After a dodgy start to the season at Goodison, they've only lost 1 of their last 9 Premier league home games and mounted a serious challenge for a top six finish. They host a Bolton side that almost threw it away at home to Spurs only for Davies to score the winner with minutes to go. Selling captain, Nolan, to Newcastle seemed as much a surprise to Nolan as it was to everyone else and surely the Trotters are worse off without him. Bolton have taken just 1 point from their last 4 Premier league away games and 1 goal should be enough for an Everton victory.
Home Win 1-0
  Sunderland v Stoke
  Stoke's win over Man City lifted them out of the bottom three and was not a surprise given their home form but on the road they've lost 5 of their last 6 and are yet to secure a victory. Rory Delap stupidly got himself red-carded in the victory at home to City so Sunderland won't have to worry about the threat of the long throw. The Black Cats have experienced mixed results at the Stadium of Light but taking 4 points off of local rivals, Newcastle, over the season will keep fans happy for a while to come. Sbragia has strengthened his defensive unit with signings Davenport and Ben Haim; offloading the troublesome Djouf couldn't have been better timed given the vicious spat with colleague, Anton Ferdinand. Stoke don't often go down without a fight but the home side have the advantage.
Home Win 2-1
  West Brom v Newcastle
  West Brom increased their points tally on the road to 5 with a spirited draw at the KC Stadium and though they still occupy bottom spot, just 3 points covers the bottom 7 sides. The FA cup exit at Turf Moor could be a blessing in disguise but Mowbray's comments regarding their renewed priorities seemed a trifle misguided; surely retaining their Premier league status was always their number one priority. The Baggies have scope for renewed hope and the game against Newcastle gives them realistic opportunity to get more points on the board. The Magpies have won just the once on the road and have an injury list that appears to be growing by the day. Kinnear has sold the experienced Given and N'Zogbia though Kevin Nolan will give him some extra bite in midfield. Sharing the points with Sunderland last weekend must've left the fans disgruntled but there could be worse news this weekend at the Hawthorns.
Home Win 1-0
  Wigan v Fulham
  Fulham are still without an away win and after putting together a run of 4 successive away draws, they're back to square one with defeats at West Ham and Sunderland. They're not safe from the threat of relegation despite their position in ninth and won't find it easy against a Wigan side 2 places and 4 points above them. Steve Bruce may have lost a couple of important players but recent draws at home to Liverpool and away at Villa Park hint that the self-belief has not deserted the dressing room. The Latics haven't lost at home for 7 games now, dropping just 4 points in that sequence, and should be backed against a side that are renowned strugglers on the road.
Home Win 2-1
Sat 5:30 Portsmouth v Liverpool
  It's common knowledge that Tony Adams is not a quitter but the rumours are that the Pompey manager has just 3 games to save his job, primarily because Gaydamak has the club up for sale and wants the best price possible. Portsmouth have taken just 1 point from their last 7 games including 3 straight home defeats and it's not the sort of record you want to take into a home game against a Liverpool side desperate to stay in touch with United. The Reds have tasted defeat just once this season (away at Spurs) and will be buoyed by their last gasp victory over title challengers, Chelsea. Torres may have grabbed the goals but Benitez looks to have missed a trick in not settling Robbie Keane. Liverpool are a seriously weaker side without Gerrard and Torres but fortunately both are fit. If Liverpool are to be genuine contenders they need to convert draws into victories; however, they still need United to slip up.
Away Win 1-2
Sun 1:30 Tottenham v Arsenal
  The timing couldn't be better! Robbie Keane returns to the Lane for the north London derby as captain and he's bound to get a rapturous reception from the fans; what are the odds on him getting the winner in Spurs' first Premier league win over Arsenal? Harry's squad is almost as you were 8 months ago but they sit only a point off the relegation places and need to win their home games. There'll be no repeat of the David Bentley Emirates wonder goal as he's suspended and Defoe succumbed to the dreaded metatarsal phenomenon so also won't feature. Their opponents, Arsenal, are effectively out of the title race after dropping 10 points behind United but their Champions League qualification will be further in doubt if they continue to drop points. Wenger has finally got his hands on Arshavin but the Russian is unlikely to feature given that the Russian season finished in November. The Gunners have put together a run of 10 Premier league games undefeated but 5 of those have finished level; another draw would be a far from surprising result.
Draw 1-1
Sun 4:00 West Ham v Man Utd
  United have made it 7 successive victories and 12 Premier league games without conceding a goal; the last side to score against them was Arsenal back at the beginning of November. It shouldn't be forgotten that they're also still in the FA Cup and the Carling Cup final plus they've already won the World Club Championship. Liverpool's win over Chelsea was not the best result for them but they're still 2 points clear at the top of the Premier league with a game in hand. Upton Park has proved a difficult place to go in recent seasons and is likely to be so again; West Ham have not suffered defeat in their last six Premier league fixtures and 9 points have come from their last 3 home games. Zola, in tandem with Clarke, has stuck to his principles and the results have come. This game promises to be exciting but Fergie is, as ever, guarded against complacency and United should be expected to nick a vital victory.
Away Win 0-1
