Archived Premier League football betting tips (17th to 18th Sep 2011)

Sat 12:45 Blackburn v Arsenal
  Blackburn secured their first point of the season at Craven Cottage last weekend but other results meant they slipped to the bottom of the Premier League. Kean was apparently happy with his side's display and believes he has the backing of the players and the owners, though confidence in a top half finish might be somewhat misplaced. However, the fans don't see it that way and are calling for his sacking with a protest march ahead of the Arsenal match. The owners have pleaded for the fans' support in backing the team and manager but only a victory is likely to appease them. Samba and Nelsen are likely to miss out with injury leaving Dann and Givet to resume their partnership at the back. They host an Arsenal side believed to have turned the corner according to Pat Rice after their draw in Dortmund. The Gunners did recover from their beating at Old Trafford with a narrow win over Swansea at the Emirates last weekend but the performance was far from convincing. It will take time for the likes of Mertesacker, Arteta and Benayoun to gel but it's a bonus for Wenger to get Gibbs, Song, Frimpong and Gervinho back from injuries and suspensions. Rumour has it that Aaron Ramsey could also be fit after sustaining an ankle knock in training. If Arsenal have turned the corner, it's only going to increase the pressure on Steve Kean.
Away Win 1-2
Sat 3:00 Aston Villa v Newcastle
  How Newcastle managed to emerge from Loftus Road unscathed I'll never know but it means they remain unbeaten with 3 clean sheets from 4 matches. Their opponents, Villa, have also yet to taste defeat but by comparison have only kept 2 clean sheets whilst scoring more goals. Surprisingly, Darren Bent has only netted once this season but there'll be more pressure on him with a hamstring injury expected to keep Heskey out. Agbonlahor will probably move into the middle to support Bent whilst Albrighton will move to the other wing from N'Zogbia. Newcastle rarely threatened at QPR although Leon Best could've nicked all three points only to be denied by Paddy Kenny. Given that the Magpies have lost a number of decent players without adequately replacing them, they're doing extremely well and Pardew is all too aware that his side's defensive strength is crucial to their Premier League hopes. The manager is likely to name an unchanged side for the trip to Villa Park but their defence has led a charmed life on occasions; something that Villa will only be too keen to test.
Home Win 1-0
  Bolton v Norwich
  Since Bolton's opening day salvo at Loftus Road, the fixture list hasn't been kind to them and neither have been the results. Defeats at home to City and United sandwiched another at Anfield but it was the 5 goals conceded to United that were the most telling. At times the Bolton defence was made to look naive at best and the scoreline surely flattered them. The Trotters issued the proverbial war cry before that heavy defeat and rather than helping them, Kevin Davies can count himself lucky to have stayed on the pitch. No doubt they'll aim to intimidate Norwich in similar fashion and will probably have more success. After starting the season with 2 valuable draws, the Canaries have now suffered a couple of defeats despite playing well on occasions. Second keeper, Rudd, was at fault for West Brom's winner as early as the third minute and their subsequent efforts to get back into the game were unsuccessful. More worrying is the fact that Norwich have now given away 4 penalties in 4 games this season. However, there is some good news with keeper Ruddy expected to return after serving a one match suspension. The Reebok is a tough place to go and Norwich are unlikely to be allowed to play their passing game.
Home Win 2-0
  Everton v Wigan
  After taking 5 points against the newly promoted sides, Wigan slipped to their first defeat of the season. An Aguero hat-trick at the Etihad put paid to their hopes of anything from the game and the rot continued with Palace dumping them out of the Carling Cup during the week. Wigan's second-half performance at Selhurst Park was an improved one but failed to carry them into extra time, let alone to the next round. Martinez is doing a creditable job at the DW with a limited budget but his side look like they'll be facing another uphill struggle to stay in the Premier League. They travel to Goodison Park where Everton have picked up after their opening home defeat to newly promoted QPR. David Moyes is another manager constrained by a tight budget but the players he has at his disposal are of good quality considering the funds available. Losing Arteta is obviously a big blow but the Toffees are great at developing players with Ross Barkley touted as the latest success. Expect this to be a tight game but Everton should have the final say.
Home Win 2-1
  Swansea v West Brom
  For all of Swansea's free-flowing football this season, they're still to score a Premier League goal despite coming so close on numerous occasions. They were the better side for much of the game against Arsenal and the usually reliable Michel Vorm has to take the blame for their defeat. An error of judgement when throwing the ball out resulted in Arshavin netting from an acute angle and the Gunners can count themselves fortunate. At home Swansea have fought out goalless draws against Wigan and Sunderland and will be looking to at least do the same against West Brom, if not better. However, the Baggies got their first points on the board last weekend with a narrow victory at Carrow Road. Tamas's elbow on Vaughan late on in the game means he's suspended after retrospective action by the FA. Prior to the Norwich victory, West Brom have had tough games against United, Chelsea and Stoke. Expect them to pick up from where they left off last season, especially with Odemwingie back from injury and already scoring. This could be another game the the Baggies just nick.
Away Win 0-1
  Wolverhampton v QPR
  QPR were hugely impressive in their goalless draw at home to Newcastle especially considering the number of new signings that Neil Warnock had slotted straight into the side. They looked solid, had pace on the flanks and just needed that killer instinct in front of goal. It remains debatable how they'll fare on the road but their only win of the season came at Everton including their only goal. They travel to Molineux where Wolves have also impressed this season. Wolves were unbeaten until last weekend when Spurs left with all 3 points but McCarthy's side more than held their own for the first 70 minutes of that game. They were also very impressive in their home victory over Fulham when they virtually dominated the entire proceedings. The Spurs defeat looks like just a blip for Wolves whilst QPR have shown plenty of promise. A difficult match to predict but Wolves should have the edge.
Home Win 2-1
Sun 1:30 Tottenham v Liverpool
  Harry Redknapp has taken a weakened team to Greece citing injuries and a massive game against Liverpool. Spurs have finally got some points on the board with a surprising victory at Wolves after disappointing defeats against United and City. They'll want to keep that ball rolling against a Liverpool side that stuttered to defeat at Stoke last weekend. However, the Reds have already won at North London rivals, Arsenal, and always provide difficult opposition. Unlike Spurs, Liverpool have few injuries and Dalglish's main selection problem will be whether to start with Kuyt or Carroll alongside Suarez. Spurs' injury problems are renowned and they only seem to be getting worse. Dawson has an Achilles problem meaning King may have to play his second successive league game and could partner either Kaboul or Bassong. The good news is that Adebayor and Defoe both scored against Wolves whilst Luka Modric looked back to his best after the distractions of the transfer window. A great game in prospect but could swing either way; Liverpool would be by far the happier with a point.
Draw 1-1
Sun 3:00 Fulham v Man City
  Fulham haven't started the season as well as they might've hoped and the blame will be likely aimed at playing Europa League qualifying football so early. Jol added to his strike force late on in the transfer window but Bryan Ruiz's debut at home to Blackburn was one to forget. The Cottagers have lost both Premier League away fixtures this season whilst drawing their two home ones (against Villa and Blackburn), scoring just twice in all 4 matches. This weekend they face one of the title contenders with a bigger, more talented squad and an extra day's rest after action in Europe. City have certainly impressed on the domestic front so far this season scoring at least 3 goals in every game they've played. Admittedly the price tags were vastly different but in contrast to Ruiz, City's Aguero has netted on 6 occasions in 4 Premier League fixtures. Fulham will struggle to contain City, let alone impose themselves on the match.
Away Win 0-3
  Sunderland v Stoke
  Despite a number of players coming in and going out at the Stadium of Light over the summer, nothing appears to have really changed in terms of results. Home defeats to Newcastle and Chelsea and 2 draws away at Liverpool and Swansea leave them once again low down the pecking order. Phil Bardsley's stamp on Chelsea's Mata lands him with a 4 match suspension, already having been dismissed against Newcastle. Steve Bruce will be hoping that O'Shea can finally make the starting lineup especially since Anton Ferdinand has left for QPR. The concerns continue up front with Gyan signing for Al-Ain leaving Bendtner supported by Sessegnon. They host a Stoke side that've probably had their best ever start to a Premier League campaign. The Potters are undefeated all season, including Europa League qualifying, and beat Liverpool at the Britannia last weekend. Tony Pulis has left behind some of his more injury-prone players for the trip to the Ukraine ensuring that they'll be fit for Sunday. This promises to be a spicy encounter but no side should underestimate Stoke at the moment.
Away Win 0-1
Sun 4:00 Man Utd v Chelsea
  Chelsea have stoked the fire ahead of this drooling encounter at Old Trafford. Contrary to Ivanovic's claims that Chelsea started last season in similar fashion to United's start this campaign, we should add that Chelsea's fixture list last season was very favourable and they weren't half as impressive as United have been, especially when United steamrolled Arsenal. United will look more like the eleven that cast aside Bolton rather than the one that drew in Lisbon with Cleverley expected to be the only absentee. This match is one of those early season benchmarks and whilst Chelsea haven't had the perfect start, Villas-Boas will be fielding his strongest line-up having rested Terry and started Lampard on the bench for the Leverkusen win. Drogba's out but Torres could start after getting 2 assists in that game. Will the older, more experienced Chelsea side be able to curb the youthful effervescence of United? We might just see the legs of the likes of Terry and Lampard creak a bit and what price on a Torres goal?
Home Win 2-1
