Archived Premier League football betting tips (13th to 15th Sep 2008)

Sat 12:45 Liverpool v Man Utd
  The weekend's action kicks off with one of the big grudge fixtures in the English game. Liverpool should be without the injured Torres and talismanic Gerrard although there is a suspicion that Benitez may insist that the captain plays, such is the difference he makes. The Reds have been below par so far this season despite remaining undefeated and topping the table along with Chelsea. The manager's selections have failed to convince and his habit of playing individuals out of position could be their downfall. Games don't come much tougher than this and United will be anxious to climb the table having played a game less. Their performance in the Super Cup was disappointing but expect an improvement; Rooney's goal against Croatia will have given him renewed confidence and Fergie's eventual capture of Berbatov has long been awaited, the Bulgarian may even play with a smile on his face! It could be a miserable day for Liverpool given the absence of key players.
Away Win 0-2
Sat 3:00 Blackburn v Arsenal
  Paul Ince has only been at Ewood Park 5 minutes and rumour has it that Newcastle are already trying to tempt him away. The Rovers' manager's start has been mixed but the heavy defeat at Upton Park did not truly reflect the balance of the game; Blackburn had their chances and thegame could have turned out differently had they taken them. They play host to a young Arsenal side with Wenger almost certain to play the teenage hero from England's victory in Zagreb. Walcott showed composure in taking his hat-trick and is now benefitting from playing week in week out at the top of the game. Wenger probably needs to bring in a few older heads but his young guns will be keen to get over the away defeat at Fulham (their only domestic away result of the season so far). A close call but Arsenal may just edge it.
Away Win 1-2
  Fulham v Bolton
  Owing to United's Super Cup commitments, Fulham have had a longer break than most but only time will tell if that rest has done them good so early in the season. Hodgson must have been disappointed with the opening day defeat at the KC Stadium but they pulled off the shock of the weekend a couple of weeks ago when they sneaked victory over Arsenal at Craven Cottage. Their opponents, Bolton, tasted defeat in their only away fixture of the campaign so far at Newcastle and closely followed it with a home defeat against Northampton in the Carling Cup. The Trotters haven't scored since the opening day (excluding the Northampton game) and losing Elmander to a hamstring injury hasn't helped matters. Fulham know that this is likely to be another season where survival is paramount and maybe the new England squad member, Jimmy Bullard, can inspire them to victory.
Home Win 1-0
  Newcastle v Hull
  Once again Newcastle start a Premier league season by shooting themselves in the foot; just a couple of games gone and Keegan found the exit door. There's no doubt he had the fans behind him but it looks like a case of 'too many chiefs' and 'not enough communication' added to the fact that the chief executive wants to be one of the boys. Anyone would be mad to take the Magpies' job given the setup but everything has its price. Chris Hughton has been left at the helm and though Newcastle were woeful at the Emirates, Hull at home should be an easier proposition. Reality finally dawned on Phil Brown's side when they were bashed at home to the tune of 5 goals but they've done well to get 4 points on the board with just 3 games gone. Hull are unlikely to embarass themselves as badly in successive games but Newcastle should be good enough for the 3 points.
Home Win 2-0
  Portsmouth v Middlesbrough
  Pompey finally came good away at Goodison and maybe they can replicate their staggering away form of last season. Jermain Defoe was brilliant and there were signs that his partnership with Peter Crouch is starting to click after scoring a fine brace. However, they need to make Fratton Park the fortress it once was and there's no better place to start than at home this weekend against Boro. Middlesbough have enjoyed their best top-flight start in 9 years and for once, Southgate is being allowed to build a side. The partnership of Alves and Tuncay up front looks dangerous and with the enthusiastic Mido consigned to the bench, Southgate has the sort of selection problems he'd prefer. They were unfortunate to lose at Anfield in the dying seconds and are likely to pose problems for Harry Redknapp. If Portsmouth click they should win but it may rely on drawing Boro on to them before hitiing them on the counter.
Home Win 1-0
  West Brom v West Ham
  The scoreline at Upton Park last time out certainly flattered the Hammers when they put paid to a competitive Blackburn side. Rovers had chances to win the game and the West Ham defence looked shaky. Subsequently, Curbishley has departed and Zola looks primed to take the reins after this weekend's game but whether or not he can reduce the wage bill, free up cash for new signings or minimise the injuries remains to be seen. The Hammers have nil points on the road and face a tough visit to the Hawthorns despite the home side propping up the rest of the division. West Brom were widely touted as the best footballing side in the Championship last season but pretty football doesn't necessarily buy you many friends and they need a result. They haven't been far off the pace against anyone and earned a good point at the Reebok; hence the thinking that they might turn the Hammers over.
Home Win 1-0
  Wigan v Sunderland
  The Latics dished out the damage at the KC Stadium last time out with new signing, Amr Zaki, grabbing a brace and England stalwart, Emile Heskey, also contributing. As Capello has shown, Heskey has a part to play, and maybe his partnership with the 'bulldozer' (Zaki) will bear fruit. The win at Hull yielded Steve Bruce his first points of the new campaign but they only lost out narrowly to Chelsea at the JJB the week before. This week they face a Sunderland side that underwent much investment during the summer transfer window. Keane has bought in a number of experienced players but they were battered at home by a Wright-Phillips inspired City side. The young Mackems manager admitted it was a bad day at the office but away victories aren't their forte and with one already in the bag this season, the sensible money would be on the home side.
Home Win 3-1
Sat 5:30 Man City v Chelsea
  'Money money money' is bound to be playing at Eastlands before these two kick off. The unbelievable sums brought to the Premier league by the Abu Dhabi United Group have far outstripped those brought over the last several years by Roman Abramovich and maybe Chelsea have realised the bar has been raised. With Essien, Ballack and possibly Cole and Drogba out maybe Chelsea's midfield will be less commanding than usual. There may be some animosity regarding the Robinho transfer and don't discount the odds on the new City signing upsetting the Blues once again. City (as they're apparently going to be branded) started off in awful fashion under Hughes but have since enjoyed convincing victories at home to the Hammers and away at Sunderland. Maybe the partnership of Jo and Robinho is all that's missing and City may be worthy of a point.
Draw 1-1
Sun 1:30 Stoke v Everton
  Stoke's only points of the season may have come in a surprising home victory over Villa but the reality of the Premier league is beginning to bite with defeats at Bolton and Middlesbrough. Survival is the target for the Potters and they can take heart from their gritty 10 man display against the Riversiders although Faye will be serving the first of a three match suspension this weekend. They host an Everton side that were mediocre at home to Portsmouth, eventually losing by 3 goals without reply. Moyes tried to remain upbeat after that defeat but his post-match comments sent out the wrong message to players and fans and they could well pay the price for not attracting some big money signings during the transfer window. However, the Toffees edged victory at the Hawthorns and much the same could happen at the Britannia.
Away Win 0-1
Mon 8:00 Tottenham v Aston Villa
  With the Croatians so heavily beaten in Zagreb and the likes of Modric and Corluka still new to the Spurs setup, some may think their heads may be a little low but Modric has surprised with his ability to retain and play the ball in our league given his slight build. Team spirit will be buoyant at the Lane after Berbatov's protracted departure and they can now concentrate on putting points on the board. Their first point of the season came courtesy of a draw at Stamford Bridge and that 'well deserved' result should have boosted the whole side. Villa visit the Lane after failing to take their chances at home to Liverpool but it will be their defeat away at Stoke that will have O'Neill's alarm bells ringing. New contracts have been all the rage in the last couple of weeks at Villa Park but sooner or later Spurs are going to dish out some damage.
Home Win 2-1
