Archived Premier League football betting tips (24th to 25th Oct 2009)

Sat 12:45 Wolverhampton v Aston Villa
  It's derby time at Molineux and visitors, Villa, have some scalps to their name already this season. Victory over Chelsea and a draw against City are their most recent home results but they're also the only side to win at Anfield this season. Villa had great away form last season and they've maintained that this time around with two wins from three away fixtures although they did lose at Ewood Park in the dying minutes. O'Neill has reportedly made up with Reo-Coker and assured Heskey that he will get his chance in the first team. Wolves are teetering above the relegation places and succumbed to Portsmouth last time they played at home. However, they made up for it with a well-earned point at Goodison although hanging on to the three points would've been the preferred option. Wolves usually keep things tight but I expect Villa to have the final say.
Away Win 0-1
Sat 3:00 Birmingham v Sunderland
  Birmingham hover just above the drop zone on goal difference and have lost their last four games in all competitions. Ironically, they exited the Carling Cup at the Stadium of Light when they went down by a couple of goals without reply. McLeish may be excited by the Blues takeover but he won't get to spend any of his £40m transfer pot until January. Their opponents, Sunderland, have enjoyed inspired performances recently, the latest courtesy of a Liverpool beach ball. Bent has proved a shrewd purchase and tops the Premier league scoring chart with eight goals alongside Torres but that draw at Old Trafford has given the Mackems the self-belief to push on this season. Birmingham are obviously not going to roll over but Sunderland are looking good.
Away Win 1-2
  Burnley v Wigan
  Burnley gave it their best shot at Ewood Park last weekend but it wasn't enough as they registered their fifth succesive Premier league away defeat. However, their home form is infinitely better as they aim for their fifth successive home victory and look to keep their 100% home record intact. It shouldn't be forgotten that Burnley have already beaten the likes of United, Everton and Sunderland at Turf Moor. Their opponents, Wigan, have recorded decent results at the DW Stadium lately but have suffered three away defeats on the bounce including the latest at Hull. The Latics aren't as bad as their away results suggest but Burnley are up for it at home and this should go the way of the home side.
Home Win 1-0
  Hull v Portsmouth
  Portsmouth may still be propping up the rest of the Premier league but in all truth, they've been playing much better than their recent results suggest. Their only points came courtesy of a win at Molineux just before the last international break but they were unfortunate not to salvage a draw against 10 man Spurs who were literally clinging on at the death. Pompey travel to the KC Stadium to play a Hull side that are probably worse than they were last season. Currently in the bottom three, the Tigers have two home victories to speak of (against Wigan and Bolton) but Portsmouth have shown enough to warrant the away side getting something from this fixture. It looks like more misery for Phil Brown and maybe Paul Hart has turned the corner.
Away Win 0-1
  Tottenham v Stoke
  Spurs managed to hold on for victory at Fratton Park last weekend despite having Defoe dismissed on the hour for stamping on Mokoena. In Defoe's absence, Crouch is likely to start up top with Keane and may actually prove to be a better option against a physically strong Stoke side although Huth will also be unavailable after taking a swing at Upson and connecting. Spurs have only dropped points at home to United this season and they now look more assured at the back with a choice of four fit centre-halves and a keeper in form. Their opponents, Stoke, have so far failed to win on the road this season but they've improved since the last and have drawn their last three away fixtures. Assuming the Spurs back line can keep Beattie quiet, they should register another home win.
Home Win 2-0
Sat 5:30 Chelsea v Blackburn
  Frank Lampard ended his goal drought in the four goal victory over Atletico Madrid during the week and it seems Ancelotti got the right reaction after his side were beaten at Villa Park last weekend. With Carvalho dropped to the bench for the Madrid game and Ivanovic looking shaky alongside Terry, maybe Alex will be fit enough to return in the centre of defence. Chelsea are another side with a 100% home record and it's likely that'll continue against Blackburn despite recent away defeats. Rovers, in contrast, have a 0% away record losing at Arsenal, Everton and Sunderland. Though recent results have lifted them up the table slightly, it's impossible to see anything other than a defeat for them at Stamford Bridge.
Home Win 3-0
Sun 1:30 Bolton v Everton
  Don't expect this one to be pretty! The Toffees have dropped four points from their last two Premier league games and have won just the once on the road. Last season they hit a good run of form around this time but Moyes expects it to take longer this season because of players who were out all summer and the late recruitment of targets in the transfer window. How they react after a Europa League date in Portugal against Benfica will be key but they'll find it tough against a Bolton side that gave United a run for their money at Old Trafford last weekend. The Trotters are yet to win at the Reebok this season but their performances have improved after a dodgy start and they should profit against a tired Everton side.
Home Win 1-0
Sun 2:00 Liverpool v Man Utd
  With so much going on at Anfield one wonders where to start. Liverpool have now lost four games on the trot in all competitions for the first time in 22 years and questions are being asked of Benitez. As a result, the Liverpool manager has been given the dreaded vote of confidence by the club's owners so one would think that maybe his job is on the line. The Reds look a doubt for qualification from Champions League Group E and they'll be anxious to not make it five Premier league defeats when United vist at the weekend. Gerrard and Torres still look doubts although Johnson could return. United's situation couldn't be more different; they currently top the table, look certain of qualifying from their Champions League group and have dropped just 5 points all season. To add insult to injury, the likes of Rooney, Giggs, Fletcher and Evra could all return after missing the away win in Moscow. Liverpool won both Premier league encounters last season but present form would see a different result this time around.
Away Win 0-1
Sun 3:00 Man City v Fulham
  City didn't have quite enough to overcome Wigan at the JJB last weekend but they still have a 100% home record to protect and will fancy their chances against a Fulham side that haven't won on the road in the Premier league since the opening day at Fratton Park. No doubt the Cottagers will be fielding a strong side for the midweek visit of Roma in the Europa league but they may well suffer a European hangover for the trip to Eastlands. The Fulham captain, Danny Murphy, is out with a knee injury and will be a big miss after some influential performances. City also have their fair share of players out but their squad is so strong that they're unlikely to suffer as a consequence and their faultless home record should continue.
Home Win 2-0
Sun 4:15 West Ham v Arsenal
  The West Ham injury list has eased somewhat but results have failed to improve and they've still to win since the opening day. They looked clueless at Stoke until Sorensen gifted them an equaliser but Green's mistake in the 69th minute cost them all three points. The Hammers have secured just a single point at Upton Park and they're going to have to be at their best to stand any chance of taking points off an Arsenal side that are looking good on both the domestic and European fronts. The Gunners might have lost twice in Manchester but since then they've won seven games in all competitions as well as drawing during the week in Holland after leading right up until the last minute of injury time. A perfect 60th birthday present for Wenger would be three points and I can't see West Ham denying him.
Away Win 0-2
