Archived Premier League football betting tips (11th to 12th Feb 2014)

Tues 19:45 Cardiff v Aston Villa
  Cardiff go into this game just one point off the foot of the table and aware that even a win over Villa will not be enough to rise above the relegation places because of their poor goal difference. The Bluebirds have lost seven of their last nine Premier League matches although new manager Solksjaer has his first win under his belt after beating Norwich. However, they failed to build on that in the Welsh derby at the Liberty stadium and were well beaten to the tune of three goals without reply. Craig Bellamy has been retrospectively charged with violent conduct so could possibly start a 3-match suspension but Solksjaer is confident Craig Noone should be available. Opponents Villa have also suffered a recent setback after a run of just one defeat from five matches. Following that sequence they were a goal to the good at Goodison but capitulated and lost 2-1 whilst last weekend they had no answer for the visit of West Ham. Vlaar and Bertrand are minor doubts with hamstring and rib injuries respectively but the one thing that stands out in Villa's favour is superior firepower. With the likes of Benteke, Agbonlahor and Weimann, Villa can outscore their hosts.
Away Win 1-2
  Hull v Southampton
  Only a couple of places separates these two sides but the gulf between them is a massive 9 points with Southampton just about in the top half of the table and Hull in the bottom. Southampton are currently unbeaten in 5 Premier League matches but were disappointingly held at home by Stoke last weekend. However they recently won handsomely at Craven Cottage and shared the points with Arsenal at St Mary's. The Saint's away form is mixed with four wins, draws and defeats but they're capable of getting something at the KC Stadium. Opponents Hull followed their draw at home against Spurs with a win at Sunderland but that had much to do with Wes Brown's sending off after just 4 minutes. It's a couple of improved results after a sequence of five defeats in six but the Tiger's home form hasn't been bad with 5 victories and 4 draws from 12 games. There's no good news on Southampton's injuries and Hull keeper McGregor serves the last of a 3-match suspension. Very difficult to pick between these two and the draw might suit both parties.
Draw 1-1
  West Ham v Norwich
  Since Andy Carroll's return the Hammers have seen an unpturn in fortune. Not that he's been the catalyst for such a change considering he was sent off at home to Swansea and is now in the middle of serving a 3-match ban. However, the incidental return of Kevin Nolan from injury has seen him score 4 goals in 2 games with 6 points the result. A groin injury saw him substituted in the second half at Villa Park but the problem's not thought to be too serious. The Hammers are now a couple of points clear of the bottom three and will be optimistic that they can build on this sequence against a struggling Norwich side. The Canaries are level on points with West Ham but a place worse off although they've only lost one of their last four fixtures, on the road at Cardiff. The three home games have seen them beat Hull and draw with Newcastle and Man City, good results but they need to pick up points against the weaker sides. Keeping clean sheets is great but they're really struggling to score. They've won just two away fixtures this season and the Hammers look confident of picking up another important win.
Home Win 1-0
Tues 20:00 West Brom v Chelsea
  With Arsenal losing and City only managing to draw, a 3-goal victory at home to Newcastle proved enough to lift Chelsea to the top of the table with a point advantage over their London counterparts. A hat-trick for Hazard in that game underlines just how important the Belgian has become often operating in a less restricted role. Chelsea have now stretched their current unbeaten run to 10 Premier League matches amassing 26 points from a possible 30. Centre-half Terry missed the latest victory with a muscle complaint and like Torres could be fit for the trip to the Hawthorns. West Brom slipped into the bottom three following a 3-1 defeat at Crystal Palace. New manager Pepe Mel is still looking for his first win since taking charge with the Baggies having won just the once since they beat Palace at the Hawthorns back in November. They need to start better at home than they did at Selhurst Park although they're missing key players like Olsson and Sessegnon. West Brom desperately need a result to climb out of the relegation places but now that Chelsea are on top, don't expect the Blues to relinquish their advantage easily.
Away Win 1-2
Wed 19:45 Arsenal v Man Utd
  Arsenal slipped to second after their 5-1 hammering at Anfield with City also dropping a place after only managing a goalless draw at Carrow Road. It was all over for the Gunners after just 20 minutes having conceded four times by that point. Wenger remains adamant that his side can still win the title but their performance was an indifferent one and they need to muster an appropriate midweek response against United. Moyes's side surely harbour no hopes of retaining their title after being held to a draw at home by bottom side Fulham. Over the course of their last 6 Premier League fixtures they've dropped points on 4 occasions, 3 of them ending in defeat. Given current circumstances it's unlikely to be the happiest of returns for former Arsenal striker Robin Van Persie who may possibly wish he'd never left the north London club. Januzaj will surely start after coming off the bench against Fulham to prompt something of a fightback. Evans is out for United but Jones could be deemed fit after recovering from concussion. Arsenal have Wilshere back but Flamini is suspended and Ramsey has suffered a further injury setback. It's likely the Gunners will recover from their harsh lesson at Liverpool but United have been poor this season and it's looking like yet another defeat.
Home Win 2-0
  Everton v Crystal Palace
  Everton relinquished fifth spot to Tottenham after losing by a single goal at White Hart Lane. Some of their possession football was very good but they lacked a final product without the injured Lukaku. Naismith did well to heold the ball up with most early chances falling to Osman who was close on several occasions. Eventually they were caught out by a quickly taken free-kick and it was harsh on the Toffees who came to play. Only after going behind did Martinez bring on Barkley and Deulofeu, and at least one should expect to start against Palace. Lacina Traore may also be considered for the striker role after being fit enough for the bench. That's two away defeats on the trot for Everton, sandwiching a 2-1 comeback at home to Villa. They entertain a Palace side playing with much more confidence under Tony Pulis. The Eagles are now three points clear of the relegation places after beating West Brom 3-1 at Selhurst Park. It was Palace's third successive home victory but their away form is of some concern with 10 defeats from their 12 fixtures. Expect Everton to do just enough despite their lack of scoring options with Palace to run them close.
Home Win 1-0
  Man City v Sunderland
  City dropped to third in the table after their shock goalless draw at Carrow Road. They'll be seeking revenge for a single-goal defeat at the Stadium of Light earlier in the season and need to get their home form back on track after suffering a recent surprise setback at home to Chelsea. They're obviously missing Aguero who's now been ruled out for a month with a hamstring problem. Other key players out are Fernandinho, Nasri and Garcia but such are the riches at City's disposal that it's difficult to see them dropping points for the third game in succession. Opponents Sunderland also dropped down the table after losing at home to Hull and are now just a point above the drop zone. Wes Brown's red card after just 4 minutes played a huge part in the outcome of the game and he now misses the next two matches. That said, Poyet seems to be getting his house in order at Sunderland and should be lauded for his turnaround of the club though it's possible that they'll find themselves back amongst the relegation places after this round of midweek fixtures. A comfortable home win looks on the cards.
Home Win 3-0
  Newcastle v Tottenham
  As expected Newcastle missed the guile of Yohan Cabaye in the heart of their midfield and no doubt they'll also miss his goals over the remaining weeks of the season. It was always going to be difficult to take anything from the game at Stamford Bridge and they effectively ran out of steam after creating some good early chances. They're without a number of important players; Remy serves the last of a 3-match suspension whilst Coloccini, Debucy, Gouffran, Cisse and Tiote are all injured. Not surprising considering the injuries that they're on a poor run of form having taken just 4 points from the last 21 available. They host a Tottenham side that managed to leapfrog their weekend opponents Everton by beating them at White Hart Lane. That result pushes Spurs up to fifth and just 3 points shy of a top four finish. Rumours are that should Sherwood fail to secure that all important Champions League spot then Levy has allegedly lined up Louis Van Gaal. On the road Tottenham have the best record in the top flight and will benefit from the return of key players like Vertonghen, Townsend and Paulinho. Expect a tight game but Spurs should have the edge over a Newcastle side without the player that made them tick.
Away Win 1-2
  Stoke v Swansea
  Only a point separates these two sides although Swansea are currently three points better off courtesy of their 3-goal win over Welsh rivals Cardiff. It was the Swans' second win in three games and put an end to a run of poor results that saw Michael Laudrup lose his job. However they've still not won on the road since November and were recently beaten at Upton Park. New manager Garry Monk looks unlikely to see either Michu or Shelvey return from injury just yet but Dyer was back on the scoresheet in the win over the Bluebirds. They travel to the Britannia Stadium where Stoke appear to be showing signs of improvement. Only the other weekend they turned over United to end a run of 5 defeats and a draw from the previous 6 matches and built on that result by taking a point at St Mary's the weekend just gone. Odemwingie scored his first for the Potters and maybe the Nigerian has finally found his niche under Mark Hughes. Charlie Adam has also proved his worth in recent weeks with crucial goals and is joint top scorer alongside Peter Crouch. Both sides look to be finding a bit of form but home advantage could be the telling factor.
Home Win 2-1
Wed 20:00 Fulham v Liverpool
  Despite digging out one of their best results of the campaign to date, a draw at Old Trafford, Fulham remain bottom of the pile. However the gap to safety was reduced to 4 points with the three sides immediately above them all losing. Darren Bent's late equaliser could well have a bearing on their final placing come May but at least it stopped the rot of four straight defeats. Fulham have taken only 10 points from a possible 36 at Craven Cottage this season and face a far tougher challenge against Liverpool than they did away at United. Meulensteen branded Moyes's side 'straightforward' but the Reds won't be as accommodating as their traditional rivals. Within 20 minutes at Anfield last weekend, Liverpool had put four past former league leaders Arsenal and the scoreline could've been justifiably wider than the eventual 5-1 victory. That results leaves Rodgers's side 6 points shy of top club Chelsea and they'll be feeling that they've a say in the title race with some big games to come at Anfield. They're currently on a run of four games unbeaten and should put Fulham to the sword.
Away Win 0-3
