Archived Premier League football betting tips (26th to 28th Sep 2009)

Sat 12:45 Portsmouth v Everton
  Portsmouth are now 4 points adrift at the bottom of the table with nothing to show from their opening six games. Paul Hart finally had something to smile about after their Carling Cup victory at Carlisle but it doesn't disguise the fact that his squad falls way short of the quality required to remain in the top flight. Sometimes all it takes is a win of any sort to turn a club around but Pompey are going to be up against it when a buoyant Everton side come to Fratton Park. The Toffees didn't start the season particularly well but they've scored 11 goals and not conceded in their last three games in all competitions. Moyes will also have been boosted by the scoring return of Yakubu who's been out since November last year. Assuming there are no slip-ups, Everton should coast to victory.
Away Win 0-2
Sat 3:00 Birmingham v Bolton
  New boy, Benitez, was instrumental in Birmingham's victory at the KC stadium on his first start for the club and it is that spark that's been lacking at St Andrews for some time. Unfortunately, McLeish will be without Parnaby who was stretchered off in their Carling Cup defeat at the Stadium of Light which will disrupt a defence that has looked fairly tight to date. They host a Bolton side that's struggling at the wrong end of the table but a win over the Hammers in the Carling Cup and a rare goal for Elmander could do much for confidence. Their only away points of the season came courtesy of victory at Fratton Park which is no real indication of how difficult the Trotters are going to find this campaign. Birmingham will provide tougher opposition than Pompey and, as long as they keep it tight, are capable of snatching the points.
Home Win 1-0
  Blackburn v Aston Villa
  Rovers' own fans are likely to turn on El-Hadji Djouf after his latest incident with a ball boy in the defeat at Everton. The Senegalese can't seem to steer clear of controversy but big Sam can't really do without him as they once again struggle towards the bottom of the table. Blackburn's four points have all come at Ewood Park but they lost to the only decent side they've played there when City visited on the opening day. They face another good side in Villa who are confident of having both Heskey and Ashley Young fit and available after injury. Villa have won four of five fixtures this season with two of those victories coming on the road including the 3-1 win at Anfield. O'Neill's side play well on the counter away from home and their pace should prove enough to grab the winner.
Away Win 0-1
  Liverpool v Hull
  Liverpool may be up to third but they've been less than convincing over the last couple of months and their marginal victory at Leeds was another example where they've been second best. Benitez's zonal marking system has been rightly criticised and could be the major factor stopping Liverpool mounting a very serious title challenge but whether or not the manager changes it only time will tell. They host a Hull side that were soundly beaten at home by Everton in the Carling Cup and are amongst the favourites to be relegated. Currently second from bottom, it's rumoured that Phil Brown has four games to save his job and the sale of Michael Turner has hardly helped with a leaky defence being their biggest problem. This looks like being a field day for Gerrard and Torres.
Home Win 3-0
  Stoke v Man Utd
  Stoke should not be underestimated on home territory as they've proved with victories over both Burnley and Sunderland. They faced a step up in class when Chelsea came to town but the Blues had to rely on an injury time strike from Malouda to seal the points. This fixture represents a similarly high standard but United have excellent attacking options. Fergie's side are chasing hard on the heels of Chelsea and haven't looked back since the defeat at Burnley, winning every game in all competitions since. Giggs seems to be rolling back the years and is a lesson for those, me included, who thought he'd play a lesser role this season. Owen's winner against rivals, City, was fortunate timewise but United shouldn't need Fergie time to secure the points at the Britannia.
Away Win 1-2
Tottenham v Burnley
  Spurs have had two very difficult games against United and Chelsea and not surprisingly failed to live up to their billing; their chances of cracking the top four look very slim but they need to aim for maximum points in their next four games against Burnley, Bolton, Portsmouth and Stoke. Any lead over Arsenal would be great before their trip to the Emirates. Harry has a defensive crisis with both King and Bassong going off at Stamford Bridge but Dawson returned in the victory at Preston and Bassong should be recovered from concussion. Their opponents, Burnley, have had a good start but haven't been too hot on the road losing all but one of their away fixtures in all competitions this season. To add to Burnley's woes, both Jensen and Paterson were injured in the Carling Cup defeat at Barnsley with the striker out until the new year and the keeper touch and go for the visit to White Hart Lane. Spurs are not shy going forward and should win comfortably although they still look vulnerable without the ball.
Home Win 3-1
Wigan v Chelsea
  Against United and Arsenal, Wigan have already conceded nine goals without reply so facing another top side like Chelsea doesn't bode well. Inconsistency has been the Latics' trademark this season and the players have as good as admitted they're struggling to adapt to Martinez's ideology. The manager is under no illusions about what needs to improve but they'll be up against it when confident Chelsea visit the DW stadium. The Blues are the only side with a 100% record intact and already have a three point advantage over second-placed United. Joe Cole returned from injury against QPR in the Carling Cup and if Chelsea are missing something then it's that invention and bit of spark that Cole provides. Surely this is just a question of how many Chelsea are going to score.
Away Win 0-2
Sat 5:30 Fulham v Arsenal
  Somewhat surprisingly, Arsenal have already lost a couple of away fixtures this season (in Manchester) but were slightly unfortunate to be on the receiving end in both cases. One thing they haven't looked is short of goals and new signing, Vermaelen, is not only solid at the back but contributing his fair share up front. Fulham actually won this fixture last season and their home form is usually good but they've already lost to Chelsea at Craven Cottage. At Molineux, Fulham lost possession easily with misplaced passes and continually gave the ball away; something they can't afford to do against an Arsenal side that are comfortable on the ball. With Arshavin and Walcott also set to possibly feature, a result for the Cottagers looks unlikely.
Away Win 1-2
Sun 4:00 Sunderland v Wolverhampton
  The Stadium of Light is going to prove to be a tough place to visit this season down to the serious investment that's taken place. The Mackems might not look that hot on the road but they've only lost to Chelsea at home. Fraizer Campbell will be hopeful of a start after scoring his first goal since moving to Wearside in the Carling Cup victory over Birmingham. They entertain a Wolves side that are struggling for goals although Kevin Doyle could prove a shrewd purchase from Reading and scored his first for the club in their home win last weekend over Fulham. McCarthy's side won their first away fixture (at Wigan) but have followed that with 2 defeats (at Blackburn and City) and I'm not so sure Mick's old club are likely to do him too many favours.
Home Win 2-1
Mon 8:00 Man City v West Ham
  Robert Green has been quite public about his team-mates getting above themselves in what has effectively been a poor start to the season. Just a single win to their name on the opening day at Molineux is less than expected at this stage. They were sloppy at both ends in the Carling Cup exit at the Reebok and they'll be further punished at Eastlands should they approach the game in such an apathetic manner. Upson should be available for the trip to Manchester but ex-hammer, Craig Bellamy, will be waiting to take centre-stage against his old club. The Welsh striker netted a thunderous effort from 25 yards at Old Trafford in what turned out to be City's first defeat of the season. Santa Cruz is targeting this game to make his debut and his availability will be most welcome given Adebayor's suspension and Robinho's injury. City look capable of crashing the top four this season and West Ham are unlikely to stand in their way.
Home Win 2-0
