Archived Premier League football betting tips (12th to 13th Sep 2009)

Sat 3:00 Blackburn v Wolverhampton
  After struggling last season, Blackburn look to have resumed this season in the same vein and are yet to secure a win with just a single point to show from their first 3 fixtures. After losing Stephen Warnock to Villa, Allardyce managed to bring in Chimbonda as a replacement but I can't help thinking they're worse off as a result. Rovers have a decent squad but just need some of their more influential players to step up to the mark given the chance. They host a Wolves side that have so far failed to spark, scoring just 2 goals in their 4 fixtures although their reward has been 4 points. It was always going to be touch and go as to whether Wolves would score the goals that would keep them in the Premier league and so far it looks not to be the case, but at least their defence is doing its job and they've remained very tight at the back. However, Craddock has been ruled out of the trip to Ewood Park after suffering a hamstring injury during training and Blackburn might have too much for them.
Home Win 1-0
Liverpool v Burnley
  Liverpool have lost 2 of their 4 opening fixtures, a surprising statistic given their title challenge last season. Alonso is surely the missing factor but Benitez hasn't been slow to highlight Gerrard's recent form; maybe he should be pointing the finger at himself. Of those two defeats, losing at home to Villa was by far the worst but have Liverpool fallen so far to lose at home to a newly promoted side? I don't think so. Burnley have done themselves justice so far with single goal victories over United and Everton at Turf Moor but on the road they've been beaten convincingly by Stoke and Chelsea. Burnley aren't going to let themselves be automatic candidates for the drop but they're still likely to struggle against some of the big sides away from home.
Home Win 2-0
  Man City v Arsenal
  This is the first big test for the newly assmbled City side and will be a fair indication of the progression that Mark Hughes has made in terms of them playing as a team. They've three wins from three games but Arsenal present their biggest challenge so far. They'll have to do without the services of Tevez but City have such strength up front that he should not be missed. Their latest signing, Lescott, faces the club that hit him and his old Everton side for six at Goodison and given his performance for England against Slovenia, he needs to work on his game a bit. Toure captains City against his old side whilst Adebayor will be keen to continue his goal a game ratio. Arsenal have been rocked by injury to Djorou but the Gunners have adequate cover. Wenger's men were unfortunate to come away from Old Trafford with nothing and in all truth actually deserved to win the game. The blue half of Manchester could be a more rewarding venue this weekend.
Away Win 1-2
  Portsmouth v Bolton
  This is the perfect chance for two struggling sides to get some points on the board. Both are rooted to the bottom of the table with a big fat zero. Portsmouth are favourites to be relegated whilst to my mind, Bolton shouldn't be too far behind. Pompey have scored just a single goal in the Premier league this season and their squad looks a shadow of the side that played under Redknapp. Their latest departure has been Kranjcar who'll probably be a bigger loss to Portsmouth then he'll be an asset to Spurs. Their opponents, Bolton, were unlucky at home to Liverpool and only lost the game after Davis was sent off for a completely innocuous trip but it shouldn't disguise the fact that they're misfiring up front. To that end, Megson has brought in the Croation striker, Klasnic, on loan. It's looking a tough game that both sides need to win but if Pompey don't win this with home advantage, they're not going to win many games this season.
Home Win 1-0
  Stoke v Chelsea
  The Potters are continuing where they left off last season by ensuring that the Britannia Stadium remains a fortress and that they win their home fixtures. Victories at home over Sunderland and Burnley plus a draw away at St Andrews leaves them in the top five with only the heavy defeat at Anfield to mar their record this season. However, they host a Chelsea side that sit top of the tree with four wins from four games. Ancelotti's side look to have got stronger the more they've played but then they're going to have to get used to playing together now that the hands are tied at the Bridge with regard to incoming players. Lampard reckons it can work in their favour and galvanise the squad but it certainly won't help should the injuries start to take their toll. Regardless of that hindrance, they're looking good at the moment and an away win looks fairly likely despite Stoke's resolute home performances.
Away Win 1-2
  Sunderland v Hull
  Sunderland are a side full of promise this season after Bruce brought in a number of new faces and they look a much stronger proposition as a result. Bent and Jones have looked a good partnership up top and more importantly, they've both contributed with goals. Not surprisingly, they faded against Chelsea as the game went on but have beaten Blackburn at home and Bolton away. Their opponents, Hull, had been pretty much written off after last season's dramatic decline but they've showed some resolve by getting 4 points on the board with victory at home to Bolton and a draw at Molineux; that said, they were hit for 5 at home by Spurs. During the summer, Brown struggled to attract decent players but Vennegoor of Hesselink has now signed on a 2 year deal giving them some cause for optimism. Despite that, I can't see the Tigers getting anthing from this encounter.
Home Win 2-0
Wigan v West Ham
  Wigan's start to the season couldn't have been better with that two goal victory away at Villa Park but they've failed to build on it and registered no points from their last three attempts. They were absolutely hammered at home by United and followed that defeat with a similarly emphatic one at Blackpool in the Carling Cup. To be fair, a number of good players have left the DW Stadium and Martinez faces something of a rebuilding task. Their opponents, West Ham, have had a mixed start but there's good news for Zola with Behrami making a comeback for the reserves during the week. Not only that but new signing, Diamanti, netted 2 free kicks in the same game. The Hammers' 4 points have come on the road at Molineux and Ewood Park leading me to suggest that this could be a victory for the East London side.
Away Win 0-1
Sat 5:15 Tottenham v Man Utd
  Key to this encounter is how long you reckon Spurs can keep their run going. They've had a fantastic start boasting a 100% record including victories at home to Liverpool and away at Upton Park. Redknapp has gone back to his old stamping ground and got a bargain in Niko Kranjcar but the Spurs injury curse has struck again with the influential Modric now expected to be out for at least 6 weeks. With the likes of Dawson, Woodgate, King, Gomes and Jenas all doubts, it's not the sort of build up you want for a big game against United. Fergie's side also have their own defensive injuries with Evans, Ferdinand, O'Shea and Van der Sar also doubtful. Excepting the emphatic victory at Wigan, United haven't been in impressive form so far, have already lost at Turf Moor and were extremely fortunate to take all 3 points at home to Arsenal as they were outplayed for much of the match. Once again, the fence beckons and it needs to be sat on as this one could swing either way; remember United salvaged a point late on at the Lane last season.
Draw 1-1
Sun 12:00 Birmingham v Aston Villa
  A local derby, hence the earlier than usual kick off. Villa have started well despite the opening day defeat against Wigan and they look to have their confidence back after victories at Anfield and at home to Fulham. O'Neill was devasted following their Europa League exit but their squad is still small and they will benefit from not playing all those extra games implying that a Premier league challenge can be expected. Villa have not had the best of luck with centre halves recently and now Curtis Davies looks to be out but O'Neill's timing couldn't be better as he managed to bring in Dunne, James Collins and Stephen Warnock before the transfer window closed. Birmingham's 4 points have come at home against Portsmouth and Stoke although they've given a good account of themselves away at Old Trafford and White Hart Lane despite losing both fixtures. This is Birmingham's first tough home fixture and Villa were very effective on the road last season; the away side might just have the edge.
Away Win 0-1
Sun 4:15 Fulham v Everton
  It looks like Fulham have failed to build on last season's success although they've lost to two good sides in Chelsea and Villa. They picked up 3 points away at Fratton Park but the extra games as a result of participation in the Europa league can only have a negative impact on their domestic form. However, their home form was good last season early on and they start favourites against an Everton side that only got their first points on the board recently with a home win over Wigan. Distin has replaced the wantaway Lescott and Moyes has also boosted his defensive line with the signing of Johnny Heitinga from Atletico Madrid. The Toffees had plenty of smash and grab success on the road last season but it's not been apparent so far and Fulham should enjoy a much needed home win.
Home Win 1-0
