Archived Premier League football betting tips (7th to 9th Dec 2013)

Sat 12:45 Man Utd v Newcastle
  United dropped a place to 9th after their single-goal defeat at home to Everton. Many have quipped that David Moyes has finally seen Everton win at Old Trafford but it's no joke that United lie 12 points behind league leaders Arsenal and hopes of retaining their title are diminishing by the week. Both Rooney and Welbeck hit the woodwork against the Toffees before falling to their 4th Premier League defeat of the season. Rooney is suspended after picking up a 5th yellow card but Van Persie should recover from a groin injury. They host a Newcastle side who ended a 4-game winning sequence following their 3-0 loss at Swansea. Yanga-Mbiwa replaced Williamson on 77 minutes and we'll have to wait to see who partners Coloccini at Old Trafford. The Magpies are yet to draw on the road but have now lost 4 of their 7 away fixtures. Both need a win to get things back on track but surely United's need is the greater.
Home Win 2-1
Sat 15:00 Crystal Palace v Cardiff
  Tony Pulis secured his first win in charge of Palace in his first game at Selhurst Park. The Eagles managed a single-goal victory over relegation rivals West Ham to lift themselves off the bottom of the table and 3 points shy of safety. The win was deserved but Pulis is in no doubts that they need a bit more quality in January to give themselves a better chance of survival. The big bonus has been 3 clean sheets in the last 4 matches and you're always going to pick up points if things are tight at the back. They host promotion rivals Cardiff who themselves registered a clean sheet at Stoke during the week. That result moved the Bluebirds up to 15th but they're only 4 points above the drop zone. Patchy is probably the best description for Cardiff's form but they've only lost 3 of 7 top flight matches on the road. Mackay has no injury concerns and the probability of another goalless draw looks too good to ignore.
Draw 0-0
  Liverpool v West Ham
  Suarez single-handedly ripped apart Norwich at Anfield with a stunning display of goalscoring heroics. The Liverpool striker tops the golden boot after netting 4 times in 90 minutes and could arguably have had more. With an ankle problem keeping out Daniel Sturridge, it was just the boost that Liverpool needed. Agger came in for Kolo Toure but still the clean sheet escaped them. Six wins from 7 home fixtures has Brendan Rodgers's side starting as firm favourites against a West Ham side that were narrowly beaten by Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. The Hammers are 17th although they've a 3-point cushion between themselves and the bottom three. They've won just 1 of 7 away fixtures scoring only 4 goals, not surprising given their striker crisis and not helped by Ravel Morrison's suspension following a 5th yellow card. Liverpool should be looking for back-to-back Premier League victories for only the third time this season.
Home Win 2-0
  Southampton v Man City
  The Saints slipped to 8th after their third successive defeat. Following 2 tough away fixtures at Arsenal and Chelsea most thought they'd bounce back at home to Villa but a late Fabian Delph strike left Southampton with nothing. Having conceded just 5 times all season until 3 games ago, they've now let in 8 goals in the last 3 defeats with injuries to the likes of Boruc, Fox, Schneiderlin and Ramirez no doubt contributing. The problem is that the Saints have hit a run of difficult fixtures and this promises to be another one. Opponents City are beginning to show more than glimpses of their potential especially at home but also on the road. They remain third after recording their 3rd successive victory with a 3-2 win at the Hawthorns. They were 3 goals to the good before letting the Baggies back in at the death but that may give Southampton some hope. Key for City was the return of Kompany although a calf problem keeps Nastasic out. Recent results would indicate that both teams are going in opposite directions with Southampton's injuries handing the advantage to City.
Away Win 0-2
  Stoke v Chelsea
  Eden Hazard stole the plaudits in Chelsea's closely fought win at Sunderland and would've been the standout performer this week had it not been for Luis Suarez's efforts against Norwich. The Blues remain 2nd and 4 points behind league leaders Arsenal. The win at the Stadium of Light was their 3rd on the bounce, 2 of them away from Stamford Bridge. Mourinho has stressed the need for a title-winning mentality and slolwly they might be getting there but they'll need to improve at defending set-pieces especially against a big side like Stoke. However, the Potters are struggling to score at the moment and they recently played out a goalless draw at home to Cardiff. A goal never really looked on the cards but the point keeps them above the relegation places should they lose at the weekend. Stoke are joint bottom scorers at home on 5 although they've kept things fairly tight and only conceded 3 times. Robert Huth is still a big miss and Chelsea should do enough to win at the Britannia.
Away Win 0-2
  West Brom v Norwich
  Unbelievably Norwich haven't yet dropped into the bottom three but they must dread travelling at the moment. This week they were hammered 5-1 at Anfield, an away defeat that follows a 2-1 loss at St James's Park and a 7-goal humiliation at the Etihad. The Canaries have now conceded a massive 21 goals on the road, the most in the top flight by some distance. Away from home they've lost 6 of 7 and another defeat looks inevitable. They travel to the Hawthorns where the Baggies came back from 3 goals down against Man City to 3-2 but it was all too late to impact the final result. West Brom lie 13th despite playing well in patches this season. They've won just 3 top flight fixtures, 2 of which have come on home soil. Olsson misses out after picking up a 5th yellow card but the Baggies should have too much for a struggling Norwich side.
Home Win 2-1
Sat 17:30 Sunderland v Tottenham
  Spurs came from behind at Craven Cottage this week to end a run of 4 games without a win. Defoe came in for the mis-firing Soldado and tested the Fulham keeper without actually finding a way past. They had to rely on centre-half Chiriches grabbing his first for the club to get them on the right track before Holtby struck the winner late on. AVB survives for the time being but Spurs have to find a way of getting their marksmen on the scoresheet. They climb to 6th but are still a good 10 points off north London rivals Arsenal. Dembele and Vertonghen are injury doubts; the former missed the trip to Fulham with a knock whilst the latter limped off at the end of the game with an ankle problem. They travel to the Stadium of Light where Sunderland are looking a vastly improved proposition under Gus Poyet. The Mackems slipped back to bottom spot after the home defeat to Chelsea but have shown they can mix it with the best on home soil. They were only undone by the brilliance of Hazard and have beaten City and Newcastle in their previous 2 home fixtures. With the exception of Arsenal, Spurs have the best away record in the top flight but Sunderland are scoring whereas Spurs are spluttering.
Home Win 1-0
Sun 13:30 Fulham v Aston Villa
  There was definitely an improvement at Craven Cottage despite Fulham losing 2-1 and extending their losing sequence to 6 matches. The Cottagers were more organised but the mood can't have been helped by Berbatov's agent claiming that the striker wishes to move elsewhere in January. Despite the improvement, it wasn't the start that new manager Meulensteen would've wanted and they remain in the bottom three and 3 points short of safety. Expect a turn for the better when centre-half Hangeland returns from injury but Sunday may come too soon. Having lost 6 on the trot, Fulham will feel they have to go for the win and that could play right into Villa's hands who're pretty sharp on the counter. Lambert's side are unbeaten in the last 5 after winning this week at St Mary's. That moved the Villans up to 10th and gives them some much-needed breathing space. Kozak started ahead of Benteke and was replaced by the Belgian striker after scoring the second. Lambert was pleased with Benteke's cameo and who starts at Craven Cottage is anyone's guess. Villa have lost just a single away fixture this season and this game is set up for them to snatch victory.
Away Win 1-2
Sun 16:00 Arsenal v Everton
  The Gunners maintained their 4-point lead at the top of the table as Bendtner scored his first goal for the club in nearly 3 years in their midweek 2-goal win over Hull. Wenger finally put his faith in the Danish striker and was duly repaid inside 2 minutes with Giroud rested on the bench. It was Arsenal's 11th Premier League win of the campaign and their 3rd clean sheet on the bounce. At the moment they look capable of getting a goal whilst keeping the all important back door shut. Jenkinson ably deputised for the injured Sagna but still there's no sign of Podolski or Oxlade-Chamberlain. They entertain an Everton side that recently won at Old Trafford for the first time in 21 years; nothing like rubbing David Moyes's nose in it. Bryan Oviedo grabbed the winner and Martinez may consider letting Baines go given that Oviedo has scored twice in the last 2 matches as well as helping to keep successive clean sheets. The Toffees remain 5th and have suffered defeat on just a single occasion to date when they were beaten 3-1 at the Etihad. However, Arsenal just look too strong at the moment and the first goal might well just win it.
Home Win 1-0
Mon 20:00 Swansea v Hull
  Hull's 2-0 loss at Arsenal this week made it 5 defeats from the last 7 and 6 defeats from their 7 away fixtures. Despite their recent run the Tigers are 12th and 7 points above the relegation places. Their problem has been on the road where they've struggled to dominate games although they've not been overwhelmed, the only exception being the 4-1 defeat at Southampton. Midfielder Huddlestone was denied a haircut after the dubious goals panel ruled his shot against Liverpool as a Skrtel own goal but it won't be long before the former Spurs midfielder nets for his new club. They travel to the Liberty where Swansea ran out 3-0 winners over Newcastle this week. The Swans bounced back from the 3-goal defeat at the Etihad despite missing both Michu and Bony through injury. Laudrup made the decision to play without recognised strikers and it worked a treat. Shelvey was on the scoresheet again, his third in the top flight since joining the club. They have the distraction of a Europa League game next week but a win over Hull could take them into the top half.
Home Win 1-0
