Archived Premier League football betting tips (23rd to 25th Apr 2011)

Sat 12:45 Man Utd v Everton
  Everton are on a great run at the moment and haven't lost in the Premier League since they tasted defeat at the Reebok in mid-February but going to Old Trafford has proved the most difficult place to go this season. United have dropped just two points on home turf all season and conceded a measly nine goals. Berbatov and Rafael should be available if selected although Scholes's rash tackling means he has to sit out. United have a six point advantage at the top of the table and the title is theirs to throw away but a goalless draw at St James Park may have some doubting their title credentials. The Toffees are already without Fellaini and Saha but Moyes appeared hopeful that Arteta could be fit. Cahill's recovery from a foot injury has been progressing although Moyes is unsure whether he'll play again this season. Everton won't lie down but United should have too much at Old Trafford.
Home Win 2-0
Sat 3:00 Aston Villa v Stoke
  News that Gerrard Houllier spent the night in hospital will have hit Villa's preparations for their upcoming game against Stoke but recent results have alleviated their relegation fears. Seven points from the last possible nine has seen them climb into the top half of the table and seven points clear of the bottom three. Their opponents, Stoke, may have made it to their first FA Cup final by thumping Bolton to the tune of five goals at Wembley but their away form in the Premier League has been poor. The Potters have been beaten in their last seven Premier League away matches and with their league position still a precarious one, the FA Cup could represent an unwanted distraction. Houllier reckons it's Villa's improved fitness that has seen them turn the corner and compete during the last stages of the game. Whatever it is, the momentum appears to be with the Villans and they should get a result.
Home Win 2-1
  Blackpool v Newcastle
  Blackpool's slide from early season euphoria has been meteoric and the Seasiders now find themselves in the bottom three with the threat of relegation all too real. They were easily outplayed last weekend at home to relegation rivals, Wigan, taking their recent tally to one point from their last six matches. To make matters worse, key midfielders Charlie Adam and David Vaughan are touch and go for the visit of Newcastle. The Magpies looked impressive in the goalless draw against United; Tiote won man of the match for his midfield performance and Barton's diagonal crossing from the right caused problems. Nolan also comes back into contention after serving out his ban. Newcastle's away form has been patchy but they've won as many away matches as home games this season and they should feel that Blackpool are there for the taking.
Away Win 1-2
  Liverpool v Birmingham
  Liverpool haven't lost at Anfield since before the turn of the year and their three goal hammering of Man City really underlined their improvement under Kenny Dalglish. Injuries have forced Dalglish to field the youngsters but the likes of Flanagan, Spearing and Robinson did their manager proud in the draw at the Emirates. Injuries continue to frustrate Liverpool but it looks like both Carragher and Carroll, taken off in the Arsenal match, will be fit to start against Birmingham. Liverpool won't give up on chasing Spurs in fifth but of more concern will be finishing above Everton, just two points behind. Birmingham eased their relegation worries with a win over Sunderland but subsequent defeat at Stamford Bridge still leaves them within five points of the drop zone. Liverpool are bound to ensure that this game is played at a high tempo in front of their own fans and it's difficult to see Brum holding out.
Home Win 2-0
  Sunderland v Wigan
  Sunderland are another club on the slide big time. They've taken a single point from the last 27 on offer and they slip ever closer to the relegation places with the gap now just five points. That means this game against Wigan has become a relegation scrap and if last weekend's results are anything to go by then the Latics are likely to relish the prospect. Wigan won convincingly at Bloomfield Road to lift themselves out of the drop zone and give themselves a realistic chance of Premier League survival. Despite losing at Stamford Bridge the weekend before, Wigan gave a good account of themselves and it promises to be an interesting match at the Stadium of Light. Figueroa is suspended for the Latics but injury problems continue for Steve Bruce. Asamoah Gyan remains their only fit striker whilst Bramble, Mensah and Muntari are all out with Ferdinand expected to make it. Though Sunderland will break their barren run at some point, Wigan appear to have the momentum and this could be a valuable three points for Martinez's side.
Away Win 0-1
  Tottenham v West Brom
  West Brom's undefeated run under Roy Hodgson was brought to an end at Stamford Bridge last weekend and now they face another difficult trip to White Hart Lane. Hodgson has made the Baggies harder to beat and their eleventh position, six points clear of the relegation places, should see them lose their 'Boing Boing' reputation. Dorrans is their only injury concern and there are fears that he could miss the rest of the season. Spurs maintained their record of only suffering one Premier League home defeat this season by pulling a couple of goals back against Arsenal and taking a point. That result leaves them two points behind City with visits to Chelsea, City and Liverpool still to come so Champions League football next season looks a big ask. To give themselves a chance they absolutely have to win this match and will be boosted by news that Bale's injury isn't serious as well as the latest concerning injuries to King and Woodgate, both who could feature again before the season close. This should be a home victory but Spurs need to beware sloppy mistakes at the back.
Home Win 2-1
  Wolverhampton v Fulham
  Since Kevin Doyle was injured over the international break, Wolves have lost both games conceding seven goals and scoring just the once. For that reason they find themselves bottom of the table once again although a win could theoretically lift them out of the drop zone if other results go their way. They were absolutely awful in both those games, at Newcastle and at home to Everton, and subsequent injuries have hit them hard with Ebanks-Blake, Elokobi and Hunt all expected to be out. They host a Fulham side that've won just a single Premier League away fixture this season and still need a few more points to ensure they don't get dragged into the relegation dogfight. Duff and Davies are Mark Hughes's main injury worries but they haven't been ruled out of the trip to Molineux. This is definitely a match that could swing either way; Wolves have injuries and aren't playing well whilst Fulham can't win away. For value, go for the Fulham win but we're going to stick with the draw.
Draw 1-1
Sat 5:30 Chelsea v West Ham
  This season's seen a number of surprises and both clubs have been involved in shock results but this game just looks like one-way traffic. Chelsea have got back to winning ways over the last few months and as a result find themselves second in the table, trailing United by six points. The Blues have dropped just two points in their last seven Premier League matches and Torres's demotion to the bench has seen Drogba grasp the opportunity helping Chelsea to convincing wins over West Brom and Birmingham. West Ham again find themselves in the bottom three and it's beginning to look bleak after a run of three successive defeats. They're only short of safety by two points but they don't look like getting a result any time soon with a trip to Eastlands up next. Parker is still doubtful and that's an injury that could cost them dear. Let's pull no punches, it should be a comfortable three points for Chelsea.
Home Win 3-0
Sun 4:00 Bolton v Arsenal
  Bolton's FA Cup semi-final defeat to Stoke effectively signalled a premature end to their season with relegation not a concern and the chance of European football unlikely. To be fair it was a very untypical performance from Bolton and they'll be expected to improve on their own patch. In fact, they've won their last four home fixtures but prior to that were hammered by Chelsea. Robinson is suspended after he picked up his tenth yellow card in the Stoke defeat. They host an Arsenal side that've gone a lengthy period without defeat in the Premier League but too many draws has seen their title challenge lose some of it's edge. The Gunners' inability to hold on to a 3-1 lead at White Hart Lane was symptomatic of some of their big games this season and Wenger's post-match reaction showed that the pressure is building. Vermaelen remains their biggest casualty and his absence has cost them goals but they're capable of getting a result at the Reebok.
Away Win 1-2
Mon 8:00 Blackburn v Man City
  Blackburn's forte used to be their home form but draws in their last three home games coupled with a whole host of away defeats has seen them slip to just two points clear of the relegation places. Those home draws came against Newcastle, Blackpool and Birmingham and the visit by City represents a jump in class. Blackburn will be without Nelsen and Hoilett whilst Nzonzi is suspended. City aren't renowned for their away performances but fourth place lies within their own hands after Spurs failed to put Arsenal to bed at the Lane. In fact, City haven't won on the road in the Premier League since Boxing Day and four defeats from their last five away matches doesn't make good reading. They'll miss Tevez but they coped without him in the FA Cup semi-final and this looks like being another result they might just nick though the statistics don't bear it out.
Away Win 0-1
