Archived Premier League football betting tips (15th to 16th Mar 2014)

Sat 12:45 Hull v Man City
  With Man City engaged in so many other competitions of late, the Premier League has had to take a back seat. As expected they prevailed over Sunderland at Wembley to win the Capital One Cup but have subsequently been knocked out of the FA Cup by holders Wigan and were not surprisingly dumped out of the Champions League by Barcelona. However, providing they win their three games in hand, they'll displace Chelsea at the top of the Premier League table on goal difference. In the league, City's last defeat was quite recent when they went down by a single goal to Chelsea at the Etihad. Their away record hasn't been great this season but they have to win if they're to maintain the pressure on current leaders Chelsea. They travel to the KC Stadium where Hull's home form had been quite good but has suffered in recent weeks. The Tigers last won at home in the top flight back in late December and maybe their FA Cup run has distracted them from the bread and butter of domestic football. Recently Hull have been beaten at home by Hull and Newcastle, the latter of which was a heavy one but overshadowed by Pardew's actions on the touchline. City should prove too strong for Hull, especially when the home side's form has slumped somewhat.
Away Win 0-2
Sat 15:00 Everton v Cardiff
  Cardiff moved up a place following their 3-1 home win over bottom club Fulham. They remain in the bottom three but gave their chances of survival a massive boost and only inferior goal difference leaves them shy of safety. That result ended a run of four games without a victory but they've taken just six points from 14 away fixtures this season. The Bluebirds travel to Goodison where Everton have lost just a single top flight game this season. The Toffees suffered an expected FA Cup exit at the Emirates the weekend just gone with a couple of late Giroud goals effectively putting the game beyond them. Their most recent top flight result was a single-goal victory over in-form West Ham and leaves them level on points with 6th-placed United who've played a game more. Realistically their primary target will be finishing above 5th-placed Spurs who hold a 5-point advantage but have played two extra matches. Centre-half Jagielka didn't make the bench for the FA Cup defeat and a hamstring problem threatens to keep him out. Cardiff should give their all but Everton have something to play for also and have the benefit of home advantage.
Home Win 1-0
  Fulham v Newcastle
  Fulham are four points adrift of safety at the bottom of the table following their 3-1 defeat at Cardiff. That result leaves them three points shy of second-from-bottom Sunderland and they've taken a measly two points from their last nine Premier League fixtures. Fulham, so reliable at home in previous seasons, have had a torrid time at Craven Cottage this campaign, so bad that their away form is marginally better. The Cottagers have nine matches left to secure their Premier League status and every home fixture is a 'must win' game. They host a Newcastle side in the news for all the wrong reasons. Manager Alan Pardew was the culprit this time, setting the wrong example for players and fans alike, and has subsequently been given a 7-match ban. Ironically the Magpies won the game at Hull in convincing fashion by four goals to one making it their second win on the bounce after 3 successive top flight defeats. They're eighth in the table but five points looks too much to make up on United and Everton in the chase for a place in Europe. That said, they should have enough to beat a poor Fulham side.
Away Win 1-2
  Southampton v Norwich
  A draw with Stoke at Carrow Road means Norwich gained a point on most of the sides below them but it's not enough to guarantee their safety and they need to improve their 4-point cushion. However, it showed a level of resilience following their 4-1 defeat at Villa Park the weekend before. That said, they've taken just 8 points on the road so far this season, not a great build-up ahead of a trip to the south coast. Their injuries haven't improved particularly but at least Van Wolfswinkel started against Stoke although the strikers continue to struggle for goals. Southampton currently lie ninth with the gap between them and tenth-placed West Ham a massive eleven points. They returned to winning ways with a single goal victory over Palace at Selhurst Park following a couple of defeats and now there's no doubt that their top flight status is secure. The only injury concern for the Saints is centre-half Hooiveld who shows no signs yet of return from an eye injury. Pochettino has done well in his first season and rumours are already circulating that bigger clubs like Tottenham are waiting to pounce but for now the Argentine is likely to preside over another win.
Home Win 2-0
  Stoke v West Ham
  Prior to the single-goal defeat at Everton, West Ham had strung together a draw and four successive victories in the top flight easing their relegation concerns as they sneaked into the top half of the table. They remain there following the defeat at Goodison but progression further up the table is highly unlikely given the eleven point gap. They travel to Stoke with the Potters level on points but two places worse off owing to infereior goal difference. However, Stoke's performances have improved recently with just one defeat in the last six, a single-goal loss at the Etihad. Over the last couple of weeks they've beaten Arsenal at the Britannia and drawn away at Norwich. Charlie Adam remains suspended and Jon Walters joins him after being dismissed for dangerous foul play at Carrow Road. Robert Huth has been confirmed out for the rest of the season whilst Assaidi's return from a knee injury is yet to be determined. Opponents West Ham have benefitted from two weeks without a game and are relatively injury-free. Both sides have shown signs of improvement and a draw looks the best bet.
Draw 1-1
  Sunderland v Crystal Palace
  Three points separates these two sides fighting off the threat of relegation. Palace are the better off of the two hovering two points and places above the drop zone whilst Sunderland are second-from-bottom but only a point shy of safety. The Eagles have taken just seven points from 13 away fixtures this season whilst the Mackems have lost eight of their 13 home matches. All in all, as you'd expect, there's not a lot to choose between the two sides and the winner will likely come down to who poses the biggest goal threat. Sunderland have doubts over a number of players but this game is crucial and Poyet is unlikely to have too many selection problems whilst Palace are missing striker Chamakh. Could go either way but gambling on the home side to edge it.
Home Win 1-0
  Swansea v West Brom
  West Brom are slipping ever closer to the relegation places and now only superior goal difference separates them from the bottom three. Pepe Mel's short tenure hasn't exactly been a successful one and they're yet to win a game under his stewardship. Their latest result was a heavy defeat at home to United, a game in which Brunt, Yacob and Reid were all forced off adding to the injured Jones, Lugano and Popov plus the suspended Anelka. They travel to Swansea where the home side are currently four points and three places better off. The Swans have lost just one of their last four top flight matches and miss the distraction of Europa League football after being dumped out of the competition by Napoli in the last round. Swansea have a number of players returning from injury but centre-half Chico is suspended after being sent off for denying a goal-scoring opportunity in the 1-1 draw with Palace. The Swans have had a rare week without midweek football and should prove too strong for the Baggies.
Home Win 2-1
Sat 17:30 Aston Villa v Chelsea
  A handsome victory over relegation rivals Norwich ended a run of four games without a win for Villa lifting the home side comfortably into mid-table. The FA Cup and subsequent re-arranged Premier League fixtures meant that Villa enjoyed a rare weekend off but only time will tell if they've benefitted from the break. Given Villa's preference for playing on the break, it's not surprising that only three top flight sides have worse home records. The Villans have won just four times at home this season and will be hoping that opponents Chelsea will give them the space in to which to break. The visitors however are seven points clear at the top of the table although their goal difference wouldn't be enough to stop City overhauling them should Pellegrini's men win all three games in hand. Therefore Chelsea are still under pressure to continue their undefeated run in which they've gone 14 Premier League game unbeaten taking 36 of 42 points available. The Blues didn't particularly play well at home to Spurs but the away side effectively handed the game to them on a plate after sloppy second-half mistakes. Cole, Luiz and Torres are all doubts but Chelsea go to Villa Park full of confidence and should win.
Away Win 0-2
Sun 13:30 Man Utd v Liverpool
  How fortunes can change in the space of a season? Currently it's Liverpool challenging for the title and United struggling to finish the season in a Europa League place. Liverpool lie seven points behind league leaders Chelsea with a game in hand but have dropped just four points in their last nine Premier League matches. They hold an eleven point advantage over 6th-placed United who've finally managed to string together four games unbeaten. However, the jury's out on whether United can qualify for Europe considering 7th-placed Everton are level on points with a game in hand. Lucas and Sakho are doubts for the Reds whilst Moyes will likely be without Evans, Hernandez and Nani. Neither side has been great defensively this season but Liverpool can definitely proclaim themselves top scorers so far this season having scored four more than prolific City. For that reason this is looking like further disappointment for the home side.
Away Win 1-2
Sun 16:00 Tottenham v Arsenal
  Arsenal's exit from another competition was sealed this week when they failed to overturn a two-goal deficit in the Champions League second leg tie in Munich. A few disappointing results recently in the Premier League, namely the single-goal defeat at Stoke and the heavy defeat at Anfield, have dented their title ambitions and they've they now dropped to third in the table, 7 points behind league leaders Chelsea but with a game in hand. Many have talked about the Gunners feeling the pressure but they do have an FA Cup semi-final encounter with Wigan to look forward to. It may not turn out to be another trophyless season after all. This weekend they travel to north London rivals Tottenham with their counterparts also feeling the strain after last weekend's heavy defeat at Stamford Bridge. Spurs have slipped off the pace in the chase for a Champions League place but beating their arch-rivals would appease the fans a little. However, Spurs continue to look fragile at the back and orchestrated their own downfall at the Bridge by gifting Chelsea golden opportunities. Wenger will likely to have to play Vermaelen at full-back and is without Wilshere, Ramsey, Walcott and Ozil. Tottenham have had Kaboul's red card overturned but miss defenders Dawson and Chiriches plus Capoue and Lamela. Spurs are capable of getting a result but recent performances point to an Arsenal victory.
Away Win 1-2
