Archived Premier League football betting tips (31st Oct to 1st Nov 2009)

Sat 12:45 Arsenal v Tottenham
  Robbie Keane has stoked the fire ahead of the weekend's big match by claiming that Spurs have a stronger squad than the Gunners but given the way Arsenal's second string played against Liverpool in the Carling Cup, I'm not so sure. Only goal difference separates the two sides in the top four although Arsenal still have a game in hand and have proved their strength at the Emirates by winning every game to date whilst scoring an average of over four goals. A measure of how far Spurs have come is against the big four and though they've beaten Liverpool at the Lane, they've also lost to United and Chelsea. Defoe and Lennon miss out for Spurs giving Bentley a chance to stake his claim for a regular place whilst Arsenal's first teamers enjoyed a midweek rest. Spurs still have a mental block to overcome when it comes to playing the big four and Arsenal will have the psychological edge.
Home Win 2-1
Sat 3:00 Bolton v Chelsea
  A chance for Bolton to gain revenge for the midweek Carling Cup defeat at Stamford Bridge but bearing that performance in mind, it looks like being another three points for the Blues. Chelsea went top after United slipped up at Anfield last weekend although they have lost their last two Premier league away fixtures (at Aston Villa and Wigan). Joe Cole has proved the architect in midfield since his return from injury and has shown Ancelotti what his side have been missing in his absence. The Trotters will be far from pleased to see him start at the Reebok where they haven't had the best of starts this season but remain undefeated in the last three. It's difficult to see Chelsea falter for a third time on the road.
Away Win 1-2
  Burnley v Hull
  One wonders if the Burnley bubble has burst after they crashed to their first home defeat of the season against Wigan and their 100% home record was brought to an unexpected end. Burnley didn't play to their full potential but hopefully they'll have Jensen back after his bizarre slip gifted Wigan their equalizer. They host a Hull side that have taken just a single point from five away fixtures and now off-the-field news threatens to overshadow the football with the resignation of chariman Paul Duffen. Former Hull chairman, Adam Pearson, is being linked with a return which could signal an end to Phil Brown's tenure. The Tigers played their part in last weekend's goalless draw at home to Pompey, probably one of the worst Premier league matches in recent history. Burnley can improve after last weekend where as it looks like doom and gloom for Hull.
Home Win 2-0
  Everton v Aston Villa
  After three successive away defeats in all competitions and the concession of ten goals, David Moyes will be grateful to get back on home territory where they remain undefeated in their last four Premier league games, though draws against Stoke and Wolves have fallen short of expectations. They host a Villa side that've experienced a mixed bag of results recently including a win at home to Chelsea. However, they could only draw last weekend at Wolves and have Brad Guzan to thank for his penalty saves as they knocked Sunderland out of the Carling Cup. This is likely to be a closely fought encounter with few goalscoring opportunities.
Draw 0-0
  Fulham v Liverpool
  This is another potential banana skin for Liverpool although Fulham's home form is not what it was last season. The Cottagers have lost two of four Premier league home fixtures (against Arsenal and Chelsea) but this represents another chance for Fulham to claim one of the big four scalps. Liverpool ended a miserable run of form by outclassing United at Anfield last weekend but their second string failed to follow that up at the Emirates against a young and exciting Arsenal side in the Carling Cup. Benitez will take heart from Aquilani's 15 minute cameo but the Liverpool manager's likely to have both Gerrard and Torres available for the trip to Craven Cottage. The Spanish striker was only 80% fit for the United game but still started and Benitez must risk him again if they're to steal all three points.
Away Win 0-1
  Portsmouth v Wigan
  Portsmouth still sit rock bottom of the Premier league but they managed another point on the road at the KC Stadium despite it being a very poor affair. To date, Pompey have lost all five Premier league home fixtures although they did hit Stoke for four in the Carling Cup during the week and one wonders if that result could mark a turning point. Portsmouth have been playing better than the league table suggests but they face a Wigan side that have impressed despite striving for consistency at times. The Latics have beaten both Villa and Burnley on the road and will be scenting victory again. Rodallega looks in inspiring form and has already hit the back of the net five times in ten Premier league fixtures; no doubt he'll be aiming for the scoresheet on Saturday.
Away Win 1-2
  Stoke v Wolverhampton
  Under-estimate Stoke at your peril! The Potters have lost fewer games than Liverpool this season and managed to snatch victory at White Hart Lane last weekend, though they were clinging on for much of the first half and were aided by Lennon's injury late on in the second. At the Britannia Stadium, they've lost just two games (to United and Chelsea) and they were far from emphatic defeats. They host a Wolves side that were saved by a late penalty at home to Villa (courtesy of Ebanks-Blake) but McCarthy's side are finding it to difficult to score the goals that will keep them in the Premier league. They're currently a single point clear of the bottom three and anything earned at Stoke would be gratefully received.
Home Win 2-0
  Sunderland v West Ham
  The Hammers have lost three successive away fixtures although they responded well after going two goals down at home to Arsenal last weekend to claim a share of the spoils. West Ham still lie second from bottom with just six points and haven't won sice their opening day victory at Molineux. Off-the-field issues again surround the club with the Davids (Messrs Gold and Sullivan) interested in taking over the club though CB Holdings may require more than the former Birmingham chiefs are prepared to pay. They travel to the Stadium of Light where Sunderland have won their last four Premier league home fixtures and had only Brad Guzan to blame for their exit from the Carling Cup. Darren Bent could be fit to partner Jones after sustaining a knock against Birmingham and it looks like another defeat for the Hammers.
Home Win 2-0
Sat 5:30 Man Utd v Blackburn
  United lost their place at the top of the table after succumbing to a lacklustre defeat at Anfield and it'll be interesting to see their reaction to that defeat this weekend. Berbatov once again cut an apathetic figure and maybe Owen's goal against Barnsley in the Carling Cup will be enough to see him depose the Bulgarian and partner Rooney up front. Neville's reckless tackle, also in the Barnsley game, sees him miss this fixture plus the games against Chelsea and Everton. Their opponents, Blackburn, were beaten to the tune of five goals at Stamford Bridge last weekend and though they looked back on song at home to Peterborough, they've now lost all of their four Premier league away fixtures conceding an average of four goals per game. The swine flu outbreak may still affect Rovers but that won't carry much weight after a heavy defeat.
Home Win 3-0
Sun 4:00 Birmingham v Man City
  Man City's form appears to have stuttered slightly after registering three successive draws in the Premier league; surprisingly, they were two goals up at home to Fulham only to find themselves level eight minutes later. They battered Scunthorpe in the Carling Cup with Santa Cruz scoring in his first start since his summer move from Ewood Park. Ireland also scored in what was his first game since suffering dizzy spells in the third round victory over Fulham. City travel to St Andrews where Joe Hart is ineligible to face his parent club. Birmingham managed to hang on for a rare win against Sunderland last weekend and once again, it's midfielder James McFadden that looks their most potent threat. This should be a win for Hughes's side but Birmingham are likely to prove resilient.
Away Win 0-1
