Archived Premier League football betting tips (29th to 31st Mar 2014)

Sat 12:45 Man Utd v Aston Villa
  The weekend kicks off with United attempting to bounce back from yet another home defeat. The 3-goal loss to neighbours City was their fifth Premier League defeat at Old Trafford this season and explains why they're trailing league leaders Chelsea by 18 points. Not even a Europa League place can be taken for granted given that six points separates them from fifth-placed Everton. Vidic returns from suspension to shore up a makeshift defence but a knee injury is expected to keep striker Van Persie out until late April. They host a Villa side rocking from a 4-1 defeat to Stoke at Villa Park. Villa went ahead in that game through a slick move finished by Christian Benteke but lost their way and failed to build on the previous two victories at home. That said, Villa will get their opportunity to hit United on the counter at Old Trafford, a tactic that's worked well for them at places like Arsenal and Southampton. Of the first team regulars both El Ahmadi and Weimann are doubts after being subbed off with injuries during the Stoke defeat. Hosts United have fared poorly against the top sides but a fixture against mid-table Villa offers them the chance to once again restore a little faith.
Home Win 2-1
Sat 15:00 Crystal Palace v Chelsea
  Chelsea's emphatic 6-goal demolition of Arsenal keeps them top of the pile but their lead over second-placed Liverpool is only a point. More importantly third-placed City trail them by just three points with two games in hand. If Chelsea are to win the title, all they can do is win every game and hope that City falter along the way. Willian returns from suspension but Ramires serves the second of a three-match ban. Ashley Cole and Samuel Eto'o are also expected to miss out through injury. They travel to Selhurst Park where Palace are still in a precarious position after losing away at Newcastle. The Eagles are a single place and three points above the drop zone but are without a win in their last five top flight matches. Palace's home record is the best of the bottom six and they run a tight ship but keeping out the league leaders is likely to prove difficult. Tony Pulis is without strikers Chamakh and Gayle giving him fewer options against the Blues. Expect a defensive approach from the home side but Chelsea to prevail.
Away Win 0-2
  Southampton v Newcastle
  Only a point and a place separates these two sides in the top half of the table. Both would obviously like to end the season on a high but the respective gaps above and below them make a change in finishing position unlikely. Both lost at the weekend; Southampton in a dramatic game at White Hart Lane whilst Newcastle were soundly beaten at home by Everton. The Magpies' recent form actually looks better but they've not been convincing of late and have really missed the injured Remy, not to mention the sold Yohan Cabaye. Full-back Debuchy is still out but Santon could recover from a bout of tonsillitis. The Saints were actually two goals to the good against Spurs before eventually losing their way with the home side grabbing an injury-time winner. The worrying factor for Pochettino must be that they're starting to ship goals with eleven conceded in the last five Premier League matches. Home advantage should count against a toothless Newcastle side with the Saints coming out on top.
Home Win 2-1
  Stoke v Hull
  Hull made it three defeats from the last four with a narrow loss at Upton Park this week. The Tigers were reduced to ten men for the majority of that game when keeper McGregor was sent off for a clumsy challenge on West Ham's Diame. That leaves the afore-mentioned keeper banned and he joins George Boyd in the naughty corner. Hull have an eight-point cushion over the bottom three and should be safe but their away form isn't great having lost ten of their 15 games on the road. They travel to the Britannia where Stoke are once again beginning to look something of a force to be reckoned with. The Potters won convincingly at Villa Park last weekend despite going a goal down and have lost just one of their last eight top flight fixtures. Recent home victories have included wins over both United and Arsenal giving an indication of how difficult a trip this'll be for opponents Hull. Jon Walters serves the last of a 3-match suspension but Charlie Adam comes back into the fold whilst striker Assaidi isn't thought to be too far away from recovery. Stoke have also had the advantage of no midweek fixture and should emerge comfortable winners.
Home Win 2-0
  Swansea v Norwich
  Just a place and a couple of points separates these two clubs in the bottom half of the table with the danger of potential relegation still a threat. The Swans, worst off of the two sides, have a 5-point safety cushion but the midweek draw at the Emirates promises enough that they'll be safe. The problem is that they've gone six top flight matches without a win though they've played the likes of Liverpool, Everton and the afore-mentioned Gunners. Their opponents, Norwich, continue to struggle away from home with their last point on the road secured away at Selhurst Park as far back as New Year's Day. Their strikers continue to flounder with last weekend's brace again coming from midfield, the latter of which was a sensational 30-yard volley from Alex Tettey marking his first in the Premier League. The Canaries are missing Leroy Fer with a hamstring injury although centre-half Michael Turner is regaining fitness after recovering from the same problem. Opponents Swansea are at full strength with just Kyle Bartley a doubt. Given Norwich's poor away record, this should go the way of the home side.
Home Win 2-1
  West Brom v Cardiff
  A massive game for both clubs with the prospect of avoiding relegation the potential prize. A win for Cardiff wouldn't be enough to lift them out of the bottom three owing to hugely inferior goal difference but it'd take them a step closer to survival. However, the Bluebirds' away record is the worst in the top flight with just a single victory on the road this season. The goals tally on their travels doesn't look too hot either with just eight scored and 29 conceded. A win for the home side, West Brom, would ease their own relegation fears giving them potentially a 6-point advantage over those in the drop zone although they could only move up the table a single place. The Baggies have had an awful record lately and haven't won at home since beating Newcastle on New Year's Day. However, they recently won away at Swansea, Pepe Mel's first victory since taking charge, and have drawn at home this season with Everton, Liverpool and Chelsea. They're still missing the suspended Olsson but hope that McAuley recovers from an ankle injury whilst Cardiff will be optimistic that Craig Noone is fit to return from a muscle problem after missing the Liverpool defeat. A tight game where the draw looks tempting but Cardiff's poor away form hands the advantage to the Baggies.
Home Win 2-1
Sat 17:30 Arsenal v Man City
  On paper this is fourth versus third but there's much more to this game. City are three points better off than their counterparts with two games in hand and will be looking to win this game in order to cement their claim as title favourites. Arsenal, on the other hand, will be aiming to halt a run of poor results and ensure they qualify for next season's Champions League. The Gunners have taken only four points from the last 12 available including a narrow defeat at Stoke and last weekend's 6-goal hammering at Stamford Bridge. They were hoping to get back on track this week at home to Swansea but went behind early before mounting a comeback only to concede an injury-time equaliser. Koscielny is a big miss at centre-half with a calf injury and a setback is likely to keep Ramsey out until mid-April. Opponents City have put together a run of four straight win scoring a total of eleven goals without conceding including a 5-goal humiliation of Fulham and a memorable 3-goal victory at Old Trafford. In addition they have no new injuries although Aguero and Nastasic show no signs of return just yet. There's always the chance that Arsenal can dig out a result but on balance the probability is that City will maintain a winning sequence.
Away Win 1-2
Sun 13:30 Fulham v Everton
  Bottom side Fulham will be looking for their second win in three games to possibly lift themselves above their drop zone counterparts. Magath's first win in charge came at home to Newcastle a couple of weeks ago but they failed to build on that result and the 5-goal hammering at the Etihad last weekend could've delivered lasting damage. Time will tell if the Cottagers can put that result behind them but they face a tough test against an Everton side chasing qualification for European football next season. The Toffees have strung together four straight victories, the most impressive being the emphatic 3-goal win at St James's Park this week. That string of results leaves Everton in fifth place, a point above sixth-placed Spurs and six behind Arsenal with a game in hand. Jagielka was omitted from the squad that travelled to Newcastle but is allegedly fit and could make his comeback at Craven Cottage. Pienarr, however, is not expected to return to action until mid-April. Fulham are missing a host of players including Amorebiata, Parker, Mitroglu, Duff and Dejagah. The Cottagers have lost ten of their 15 home fixtures this season, by far the most home defeats of a Premier League side this campaign, and look likely to add to that figure.
Away Win 0-2
Sun 16:00 Liverpool v Tottenham
  Liverpool have put together a hugely impressive run of seven straight victories to give themselves an outside shot at the Premier League title. Currently they lie second, a point behind league leaders Chelsea, but coming up on the outside are Man City who are two points behind with a couple of games in hand. The Reds have dropped just five points at Anfield this season and goals have been the biggest weapon in their armoury. Another Suarez hat-trick helped them to a 6-3 win at Cardiff last weekend and they followed that with a mediocre 2-1 win victory at home over Sunderland. Returning players from injury has really added to Liverpool's cause and keeping them fit could spell title success. They host a Tottenham side that've struggled against the top clubs of late and may have to settle for a place in next season's Europa League at best. Following defeats at Chelsea and at home to Arsenal, Spurs showed some spirit in their fightback from two goals down at home to Southampton. Eriksen netted a brace and Sigurdsson scored the all important injury-time winner. That said, the Spurs defence continues to look fragile and it shouldn't be forgotten that Tottenham have already been beaten by Liverpool at home this season conceding five goals without reply. Adebayor and Walker look close to returning from injury but Capoue and Lamela are still out. Think goals for this game with Liverpool to come out on top.
Home Win 4-2
Mon 20:00 Sunderland v West Ham
  Sunderland are in relegation territory, three points shy of safety, having taken just a single point from the last five Premier League fixtures. However, despite defeat in their most recent game (at Anfield), the Mackems stopped the host side from playing and didn't succumb to the expected three or four goal loss. In fact they pulled a goal back from two goals down and Liverpool weren't so comfortable towards the final whistle. Poyet was impressed with some of the substitute appearances and is likely to start the game against the Hammers with a changed line-up. Opponents West Ham struggled to a midweek 2-1 win over 10-man Hull but despite the victory were booed off by a subsection of their own fans. Whilst the result was not the most impressive, at least they bounced back from the 2-goal defeat at home to United last weekend. It leaves them comfortable in mid-table and unlikely to be caught up in any of the relegation concerns below them. Collins remains a doubt after being forced off in the win over the Tigers but other than that the Hammers look capable of fielding a strong side. Difficult to choose between these two and a draw might not be far off the mark.
Draw 1-1
