Archived Premier League football betting tips (3rd to 5th May 2014)

Sat 12:45 West Ham v Tottenham
  Tottenham have an outside chance of finishing above Everton in fifth but they have to win this one at Upton Park and take something from their remaining game at home to Villa hoping that the Toffees take little from their last two fixtures. There's also the possibility that Spurs could be caught by a Giggs-inspired United meaning they'd possibly miss out on European football next season. They've seen an upturn in recent form taking 13 points from the last possible 18 including last weekend's victory at the Britannia and a 3-3 draw at the Hawthorns. Tottenham have denied approaching Ajax manager Frank de Boer but the future is an uncertain one for current manager Tim Sherwood. Opponents West Ham are still not mathematically safe but it's unlikely they'll become embroiled in the dogfight below them. The Hammers have lost their last four top flight fixtures including that single-goal defeat at home to Palace. Rumours are that Allardyce could be for the chop should he lose this one with a large section of fans hoping for a change. Borriello is out with a hamstring injury whilst Taylor and Tomkins are doubts. Spurs are without Townsend, Lamela, Vertonghen, Walker and possibly Dembele but they should be the more confident side given recent results. Going for the away win but depends if Spurs give the Hammers a head start.
Away Win 1-2
Sat 15:00 Aston Villa v Hull
  Villa have to take something from this game if they're to ease their relegation concerns. Currently they're two places and three points above the drop zone with superior goal difference to the clubs below them. However, they've taken just a single point from the last 18 available, relegation form if ever I've seen it. Survival or not, it looks increasingly likely that they'll be changes at the club over the course of the summer. Joe Bennett's a doubt after missing the Swansea defeat with an ankle problem whilst striker Benteke will not feature again this season. They host a Hull side not yet mathematically safe from the drop but almost as good as. The Tigers have a five point safety cushion with three games left to play so a point at Villa Park would be a very pleasing result. Steve Bruce's side haven't been great on the road this season having lost 11 of 17 top flight fixtures but last weekend they fought back from two goals down at Craven Cottage to snatch a point. Hull could be forgiven for having one eye on the end-of-season showpiece FA Cup final at Wembley but this could easily finish honours even.
Draw 1-1
  Man Utd v Sunderland
  Sunderland finally escaped the drop zone following their emphatic four-goal win over Cardiff at the Stadium of Light, their second victory on the bounce. Seven points from the last possible nine sees them teetering above Norwich on goal difference but more importantly they have the momentum to increase that margin. Also we shouldn't forget that that recent sequence includes a 2-2 draw at the Etihad and a 2-1 victory at Stamford Bridge, true fighting spirit at the death. However, they come up against a United side reinvigorated by the sacking of David Moyes and temporary appointment of club legend Ryan Giggs. Under the Welshman United coasted to a 4-goal victory over Norwich at Old Trafford although the Canaries held out valiantly until a dubious penalty swung the game the way of the home side towards half-time. That said, the injuries have surprisingly cleared up and even Van Persie is back in training though struggling for full fitness. Sunderland are well organised but I'm not sure they'll get the rub of the green they enjoyed against Chelsea with their run of success unlikely to continue at Old Trafford.
Home Win 2-1
  Newcastle v Cardiff
  A comfortable 3-goal win for Arsenal at the Emirates saw Newcastle fall to their sixth successive defeat, their seventh in eight Premier League games. Thanks to their performances in the first half of the season, the Magpies will finish mid-table but manager Pardew should be fearful for his job. However, Pards is fairly bullish claiming he has a long-term future at the club but I wouldn't be so sure despite six years remaining on his contract. To be honest, he should've gone after headbutting a Hull player earlier in the season. They host a Cardiff side currently bottom of the pile but only two points shy of safety. However, their last match of the season is a home game with Chelsea who may be playing with an outside chance of beating Liverpool and City to the Premier League title. So Cardiff's fate looks virtually sealed despite taking four points from their last three matches. Cala is suspended after being dismissed during the defeat at Sunderland whilst Newcastle's injury problems continue to plague them. A game that could go either way but it could be a rare win for the home side.
Home Win 1-0
  Stoke v Fulham
  Fulham failed to make the most of a 2-goal advantage at home to Hull, succumbing to the Tigers' fightback and having to settle for a point. That leaves them second from bottom and a point shy of safety although their goal difference is so bad that it effectively counts as another point against them. The Cottagers have this fixture and another at home to 'now safe' Palace to cement their bid for continued top flight status but they're in serious danger of dropping to the Championship. Standing in their way are a Stoke side already comfortably safe in mid-table and traditionally strong at the Britannia. That said, they lost at home last weekend to Spurs although Shawcross's dismissal following two bookable offences put them at a disadvantage just after the break. However, the Potters continued to pressurise the Spurs defence but without success. Stoke have lost just three Premier League matches at home this season whilst Fulham have lost 12 of 18 games on the road. Shawcross is obviously suspended whilst the Cottagers could miss Sidwell who was forced off against Hull with a knock. Admittedly Stoke don't have much to play for but at home they could prove too strong for Fulham.
Home Win 2-1
  Swansea v Southampton
  Swansea are safe after stringing together a couple of crucial victories to lift themselves seven points clear of the bottom three with two games to play. The win at Newcastle followed by last weekend's demolition of Villa at the Liberty sets Swansea up to finish the season on a high. Michu and Rangel are likely out with ankle and groin injuries respectively but Chico returns from suspension. Monk's future at the club is still undecided but the former player hasn't done badly since taking over from Michael Laudrup. They host a Southampton side with only pride to play for in their remaining fixtures. That's been the case for some time now but they still managed to put a couple past Everton last weekend to take all three points. It was their first win in four games highlighting inconsistency in recent matches. Rodriguez and Ramirez have been big misses and now Schneiderlin joins them after missing the win over the Toffees with a knock. Difficult to call this one but Swansea appear to have a bit of momentum at the moment and start slight favourites.
Home Win 2-1
Sat 17:30 Everton v Man City
  City can feel pretty safe in the knowledge that win all their remaining fixtures and the Premier League title will be theirs. They have superior goal difference to current league leaders Liverpool and that is likely to be the telling factor with both clubs now expected to finish the season on level points. This game at Goodison is sure to be the most challenging of City's last three matches although recent wins over West Brom and Palace are the first time that City have put together successive victories in over a month. The Toffees who were on a great run themselves appear to have imploded in recent weeks succumbing to defeats at home to Palace and away at Southampton only last weekend. The consequence is that Everton have slipped to fourth, four points shy of Arsenal, and hopes of Champions League football next season are almost pie in the sky. Taking something from this game or their last at Hull will guarantee them a place in the Europa League but both Spurs and United will be looking to take advantage of any slip-ups. City's main absentee looks to be David Silva with an ankle problem whilst Everton could be without a whole host of players including Pienaar, Mirallas, Jagielka, Distin and Baines. A key miss is Gareth Barry who's ineligible to play against his parent club. With everything that's at stake and potential players out, this looks to be swinging the way of the away side.
Away Win 1-2
Sun 13:30 Arsenal v West Brom
  Arsenal made it three wins on the bounce after coasting to a comfortable victory over Newcastle at the Emirates. The Gunners have a four-point advantage over fifth-placed Everton and look certainties to finish in that all important fourth spot with games to come at home to West Brom and away at Norwich. Wenger has given an indication that he's likely to stay at the club beyond the summer but that could well depend on his ability to deliver silverware in this season's FA Cup final against Hull. Gibbs, Walcott and Wilshere are definitely out whilst Vermaelen and Oxlade-Chamberlain are thought to be close to returning from respective hamstring ang groin injuries. Opponents West Brom beat West Ham at the Hawthorns last weekend by a single goal to give their survival hopes a shot in the arm. The Baggies are now four points clear of the relegation places with a game in hand over all bottom three clubs. Their away record hasn't been great this season but wins at Swansea and Norwich since mid-March mean this isn't necessarily a foregone conclusion. However, it's difficult to argue with anything other than a home win.
Home Win 2-1
Sun 16:00 Chelsea v Norwich
  Chelsea's Champions League dreams lay shattered on the Stamford Bridge turf following the second leg semi-final defeat by Atletico Madrid. It was their second successive defeat on home soil with that loss to Sunderland a couple of weeks ago still fresh in the memory. Splitting the two defeats was their victory at Anfield throwing the title race wide open with the Blues still harbouring hopes of stealing United's crown. They host a Norwich side victim to one of the toughest run-ins of the season. The Canaries have already lost to Liverpool and United and now find themselves in the bottom three with Sunderland leapfrogging them to safety on goal difference. This fixture plus their last at home to Arsenal promise little in terms of points and the likelihood is that they'll be playing Championship football next season. However, relegation rivals Sunderland have shown the way forward and we'll have to see if Norwich have the belief but they currently have the worst away record in the top flight. On a positive note they've no injury problems whilst Ramires is suspended for the home side after accepting a violent conduct charge sustained in the Sunderland defeat. You'd be brave or foolish going for anything other than a Chelsea win.
Home Win 2-0
Mon 20:00 Crystal Palace v Liverpool
  Liverpool's 11-match winning streak came to an end last weekend at home to Chelsea and most likely with it their chances of a first Premier League title. They still top the table but City's superior goal difference and game in hand despite their three point deficit mean that City would take the title should both sides win their remaining fixtures. Chelsea shouldn't be discounted either given their ideal position to pounce should City and Liverpool slip up. After coming on against the Blues, Sturridge should be fit to partner Suarez up top for the trip to Selhurst Park. The Eagles' own 5-game winning run was also halted last weekend when they were undone at home by City. It's been a remarkable run that's seen Palace play their way to safety with the potential still for a top-half finish. That said, the City defeat wasn't entirely unexpected and they'll be up against it again this weekend with Liverpool still believing they can win the title. Tony Pulis has no injury concerns but it's difficult to see them keeping a clean sheet against the Red goal machine.
Away Win 1-3
