Archived Premier League football betting tips (22nd to 23rd Oct 2011)

Sat 12:45 Wolverhampton v Swansea
  Since taking 6 points from their opening 2 games, Wolves' slide towards the wrong end of the table has been remarkable with them losing their last 5 successive Premier League fixtures. McCarthy will be worried that they've scored just twice in the last 6 Premier League matches with Doyle not on the scoresheet in any game since their opening home victory over Fulham. Steven Fletcher was responsible for their recent 2 goals but is expected to be out for at least a couple of weeks with a calf injury. Mc Carthy may opt to stick with one striker or could bring in Ebanks-Blake to partner Kevin Doyle. They host a Swansea side that have lost all 5 away matches in all competitions this season although they're starting to find the back of the net more often. The Swans are only a point better off than Wolves but have conceded a total of 12 Premier League goals on the road, only Arsenal have conceded more. This is the perfect opportunity for Wolves to rediscover their winning formula.
Home Win 2-1
Sat 3:00 Aston Villa v West Brom
  Aston Villa's unbeaten start came to an end at the Etihad last weekend where City enjoyed a comprehensive victory. No shame there on Villa's part but James Collins could return from a groin injury to partner Richard Dunne in the heart of the defence. They're still undefeated on home turf and Big Eck is likely to name a similar starting lineup with Bannan possibly in for Heskey and of course the afore-mentioned Collins replacing Clark. They entertain a West Brom side that have steadily climbed the table after suffering 3 successive defeats at the start of the season despite performing well. They beat derby rivals Wolves last weekend at the Hawthorns with Odemwingie coming off the bench to score his first goal since early September. That could be enough for Hodgson to start him alongside Shane Long. Expect another tight game to be played in a derby atmosphere but Villa could just nick it.
Home Win 1-0
  Bolton v Sunderland
  Bolton climbed off the foot of the table with a much needed win at Wigan. Nigel Reo-Coker and David Ngog scored their first goals for the club justifying their places in the starting eleven. Prior to this victory, the Trotters had equalled their worst ever run in the Premier League with 6 successive defeats but Coyle's instructions to attack from the onset paid off. Wheater's centre-half partnership with Gary Cahill is likely to continue for the visit of a Sunderland side level on points with Bolton and also flirting with the relegation places. The Mackems have won just a single game this season and taken just 2 points on the road. Last weekend they lost at the Emirates but Bruce will be bolstered by the knowledge that Bendtner is again eligible to play after missing the Arsenal defeat due to conditions of his loan deal. However, Seb Larsson misses out after picking up his fifth booking of the season during that game. No side particularly stands head and shoulder above the other but home advantage plus a boost of confidence from last weekend's win could swing the game in Bolton's favour.
Home Win 2-1
  Newcastle v Wigan
  Newcastle justified their great start to the season by holding Spurs at St James Park despite having to come from behind twice to earn themselves a point. The Magpies are still undefeated after 8 games and look comfortable in fourth spot. All the boardroom shenanigans that have gone before aside, Pardew appears to have fostered an undeniable team spirit amongst his players; a lesson to be learned by all clubs regardless of some of the huge amounts of money at their disposal. After grabbing the second equaliser against Spurs, Ameobi will be looking to displace Ba or Best up top. They host a Wigan side currently second from bottom but spared the embarrasment of being bottom by virtue of a single goal. The Latics have won just one game this season and managed just a point on the road from 4 attempts. Sloppy mistakes cost them dearly at home to relegation rivals Bolton last weekend despite the returning Alcaraz and Rodallega featuring. Anything other than a home victory will be disappointing for both Newcastle fans and players.
Home Win 2-0
Sat 5:30 Liverpool v Norwich
  After Norwich's more than respectable performance at Old Trafford, Paul Lambert named an unchanged lineup for the win over Swansea. Lambert hasn't been afraid to leave out any of the local heroes with club captain Grant Holt the stand-out omission. However, Morison was forced off against Swansea with a knock and Holt could find himself back in the side. The Canaries have won 3 of their last 4 matches and will travel to Anfield full of confidence. Liverpool welcomed Gerrard back for the draw with United and his performance and goal would indicate that the Reds skipper will be difficult to dislodge unless injury strikes again. As expected, Andy Carroll made way for his captain and the big Geordie faces a battle to get back into the side. Lucas is suspended after picking up his 5th booking and Henderson is expected to replace him in the starting lineup. Dalglish's men are up to 5th in the table and maintain their unbeaten record at home. As we saw at Old Trafford, Norwich won't be running scared but Liverpool look strong and the three points should be theirs.
Home Win 2-0
Sun 1:30 Arsenal v Stoke
  Not many would disagree that Arsenal have been riding their luck at times recently. Their defence is still prone to more errors than is readily acceptable but they've now won 5 of their last 6 games in all competitions. Wenger is adamant that his side are moving in the right direction, slowly but surely, though there is much work to be done if they're to improve on their mid-table position. The Gunners have won 3 of their 4 Premier League home fixtures though problems persist in defence with Gibbs and Jenkinson both rated doubtful whilst Sagna and Vermaelen are still out. They host a Stoke side trying to achieve success on the European front as well as domestically. Not surprisingly, their away form has dipped with recent defeats at Swansea and Sunderland. Upson could be preferred to Woodgate at centre-half whilst Kenwyne Jones is struggling to disrupt the strike partnership of Crouch and Walters. The Potters will be up for the physical challenge at the Emirates but the likes of van Persie should give Arsenal the edge providing they keep the door shut at the other end.
Home Win 2-1
  Fulham v Everton
  Both sides look pretty evenly matched on paper with them both guilty of under-performing on occasions so far. Only a handful of goals separates them just a point above the drop zone. By the time this game kicks off, Fulham will have already played 20 competitive matches and at some point tiredness is bound to affect them. However, that didn't look the case when they hammered QPR for 6 in their last Premier League game at Craven Cottage. The Cottagers remain unbeaten on home soil in all competitions this season. Jol has left Zamora, Dempsey and Murphy behind for the midweek trip to Poland with this match in mind although Murphy is a doubt with a knee injury. Everton have suffered 3 straight defeats but they've faced quality opposition in Man City, Liverpool and Chelsea. Injuries are at a minimum, such that Phil Neville is struggling to nail down a place in the starting eleven. The Toffees only points on the road have come at Ewood Park where an Arteta (now at Arsenal) injury-time penalty gave them the victory. Don't think Fulham will lose this and the double chance bet would be Fulham or Draw but will have to go for a home win if sticking my neck out.
Home Win 1-0
  Man Utd v Man City
  Not only do we have the mouth-watering clash of a high profile Manchester derby but it's also top versus second with the financially well-endowed pretenders currently two points clear. Both sides remain undefeated in the Premier League this season whilst United still have a 100% home record so something's going to have to give. Both sides have scored goals for fun and managed to keep the goals conceded down to 6 apiece. Again, both sides have very few injuries and such is their strength in depth it's almost impossible to predict the respective starting elevens. The only thing we can be certain of is that Carlos Tevez will not feature against his old club as he continues to serve the suspension imposed by City. Derbies of this calibre are almost like cup finals and form goes out of the window. The team that turns up with the right attitude on the day should prevail but as ever, the value in these games is always on the draw.
Draw 1-1
Sun 3:00 Blackburn v Tottenham
  If Tottenham harbour ambitions of reclaiming a place in the top four then these are the games they have to win. Blackburn are rock bottom and have won just a single Premier League match this season, the 3 points coming against Arsenal at Ewood Park partly in thanks to a couple of Gunners own goals. Rovers have lost their other 3 Premier League home games and conceded 10 goals over the 4 matches. Though the pressure is firmly on Steve Kean to lift his side up the table and the players are reputedly behind him, the fans apparently aren't with a march planned before the game and a sit-in protest to follow. Spurs' problems continue in defence with Corluka, Dawson, Gallas and King all out leaving Bassong to partner Kaboul at the back. Lennon could return in place of Livermore whilst a strike partner for Adebayor remains up for grabs between van der Vaart and Defoe. Spurs' run of 4 successive Premier League victories was brought to an end at St James Park but they were leading twice only for Newcastle to haul them back on both occasions. The absence of King is a bitter blow for Redknapp but Spurs are capable of outscoring the home side.
Away Win 1-2
Sun 4:00 QPR v Chelsea
  A West London derby to be savoured but Chelsea will be feeling the more confident going into this match. The Blues are currently 3rd and could move up a place if they beat Rangers and the result in the Manchester derby falls their way. They must be feeling confident after smashing Genk in the Champions League this week with Torres grabbing a brace, plus they've scored 13 goals in their last 3 games in all competitions whilst conceding just twice. Drogba wasn't happy at being left out against Genk but could return with Torres suspended for this match. With QPR already having been beaten heavily at home to Bolton and away at Fulham, Warnock must be wondering at how best he can contain Chelsea. Taarabt didn't make the starting lineup against Blackburn and may be considered a luxury against the quality of Villas-Boas' men. Hall is expected to continue at the back in place of Gabbidon whilst Bothroyd should again make way for Helguson with Campbell injured. QPR are yet to win at Loftus Road this season and it's unlikely their first home victory will come this weekend.
Away Win 0-3
