Archived Premier League football betting tips (25th to 26th Oct 2008)

Sat 12:00 Everton v Man Utd
  The Toffees have had a fairly miserable start to the season and their home form has been the root of the problem. They've taken just 1 point at Goodison in 4 attempts; that point coming in their last home game with Newcastle fighting back from 2 goals down. Cahill serves the last game of his suspension as his team mates take on the current Champions. United started slowly but are gathering pace and look like they can convincingly beat anyone. The likes of Rooney, Berbatov and Ronaldo interchange with such ease that most defences are constantly on the back foot; Fergie's front three are playing so well that Tevez is struggling to make the starting lineup. United's sole defeat this season came at Everton's neighbours (Anfield) but this time it looks like a surefire win for the away side.
Away Win 0-2
Sat 12:45 Sunderland v Newcastle
  Sunderland haven't beaten their arch-rivals, Newcastle, at home since 1980 but given the current state of both sides, the Mackems are unlikely to have a better chance in the near future. At Craven Cottage last weekend, Kieran Richardson deserved a brace only to be denied by woodwork and referee, and Sunderland had to be content with just a point. On the Tyne, Newcastle are trying to dig themselves out of a hole and the prospect of relegation. With just 1 win on the board and down to 10 men, they went ahead at home against City courtesy of 2 fortunate goals only to be brought back level. Kinnear's toughest decision this weekend will be whether or not to play Joey Barton; the midfielder has not started a game since May and given his temperament, the hotbed of a local derby may not be the ideal comeback. The Magpies are improving but we haven't yet seen the best of Roy Keane's side.
Home Win 2-1
Sat 3:00 West Brom v Hull
  After 8 Premier league fixtures, Hull City are proving everyone wrong; they sit proudly in 3rd position with 17 points and at this rate the Tigers will have guaranteed their top flight status by Christmas. They've taken 10 points from 12 on the road including visits to Arsenal, Spurs, Newcastle and Blackburn. Brown employs a narrow system that gives Geovanni a free role but relies on the full backs giving the system width; the question will be whether West Brom's full backs can get forward and expose Hull's weakness. The heavy United defeat aside, the Baggies have enjoyed back to back wins away at the Riverside and at home to Fulham. Mowbray has admitted that this is a big game but Hull are an improved side from last season in the Championship and this could be another fairytale result for the Tigers.
Away Win 0-1
Sat 5:30 Blackburn v Middlesbrough
  Rovers have had a mediocre start to life under Paul Ince but find themselves safely ensconced in midtable. Just 4 points from 4 home games is not great but that includes defeats to United and Arsenal. Santa Cruz faces a late fitness test on his hamstring and is bound to start if fit. They host a Boro side that are once again proving themselves to be consistently inconsistent. They were soundly beaten last weekend by a seriously less than full strength Chelsea team and appeared to cave in as the goals rattled in; aware of fixtures to come, the Blues took their foot of the pedal in the last 20 minutes otherwise the scoreline could have been worse. Tuncay is still out injured but at least Pogatetz is available after serving his suspension. Boro don't seem to do draws and it's going to be hard to put that defeat behind them; good news for Blackburn.
Home Win 1-0
Sun 1:30 Chelsea v Liverpool
  The Premier league top two meet at Stamford Bridge level on 20 points and 9 goals separating them; that goal difference in Chelsea's favour goes some way to installing them as title favourites and likely victors in this exciting encounter. Both sides remain undefeated this season but the Blues are now only missing Drogba, Ballack and Essien and the midweek victory over Roma gave them their 6th successive clean sheet in all competitions. Liverpool, however, have injury concerns regarding Keane, Gerrard and Alonso who were all substituted during the midweek draw in Madrid; added to the fact that Torres is already out with a thigh injury, Benitez has his work cut out despite resting Dirk Kuyt. Chelsea will be anxious to pressurise their opponents and it'll be tough for Liverpool to stop the array of talent before them.
Home Win 1-0
Sun 3:00 Man City v Stoke
  City have had their ups and downs this season but the point at St James Park will have disappointed Hughes after going a goal up and playing against 10 men for 76 minutes. Granted, Newcastle were fortunate in the goals that counted for them but City still gave the Magpies too many opportunities. Home territory has yielded more points with 2 wins from 4 (losses against Chelsea and Liverpool) and City should be expected to take maximum points against Stoke, though the visitors only away point came courtesy of a goalless draw at Anfield. The Potters are struggling to escape the bottom three despite victory at home to Spurs last weekend but can be guaranteed to give everything in a bid to preserve their Premier league status.
Home Win 2-1
  Tottenham v Bolton
  Spurs are going from bad to worse and as architects of their own downfall can only blame themselves. Schoolboy errors from players have resulted in dismissals and crazy goals conceded, the manager's team selections have been strange and the director of football must be clinging to his job by his fingernails. Not only can Spurs not score but they look so vulnerable without the ball. Currently occupying bottom spot with a measly 2 points, they face a physical Bolton side without Bale, Dawson and possibly neither King or Woodgate. The Trotters aren't having a great time of it either but the win at West Ham will have boosted morale. Megson has no injury concerns and his players have had no midweek action so should be relatively fresh as they look to take the game to Spurs. The lilywhites have had most of the stuffing knocked out of them and Bolton will make sure there's none left.
Away Win 1-2
  Wigan v Aston Villa
  Steve Bruce is keen to hold on to Amr Zaki after both City and Liverpool are rumoured to be after the on-loan striker; especially after the Egyptian scored a brace at Anfield to give Wigan a 2-1 lead until the home side finally responded with 10 minutes to go. Wigan have been playing well but results haven't necessarily gone their way. Heskey faces a late fitness test on a back injury with both Carew (illness) and Agbonlahor (badly cut knees) also doubtful. Villa overcame UEFA Cup opponents, Ajax, during the week but their away form has been mixed with wins at West Brom and Spurs but defeats at Stoke and Chelsea. If Martin O'Neill is without his front two, Wigan might just have the upper hand and prove the doubters wrong.
Home Win 1-0
Sun 4:00 West Ham v Arsenal
  Last weekend the Hammers became the third London side to be beaten 1-0 by new boys, Hull City (their opponents, Arsenal, are another). With Ashton's injury keeping him out for 6 months, Bellamy made his first start this season against Hull but failed to convert any of West Ham's chances along with the rest of his team mates. They host a young Arsenal side that showed midweek against Fenerbahce that they don't waste too many opportunities. The same was evident in their recent home victory over Everton but they have shown vulnerablility at the back; Wenger will be hoping that Gallas, Sagna and Toure are more than 50/50 for this game. Despite the intensity of a London derby, there will be chances and the victor will be the side that takes them.
Away Win 1-2
Sun 5:00 Portsmouth v Fulham
  Pompey may have lost to the tune of 3 goals in Portugal during the week but a nice comfortable home game is the perfect tonic to putting that defeat behind them. The fixture list has once again been kind as Fulham visit Fratton Park, the only side without a single point on the road. The Cottagers hover just above the bottom three on goal difference and were lucky to escape with a point at home last weekend against a plucky Sunderland side. Portsmouth have taken 9 points from 4 home games although these victories did come against weaker sides (Stoke, Spurs and Boro) with the defeat a heavy one against Chelsea. Home advantage should count here with Crouch and Defoe having a field day.
Home Win 3-0
