Archived Premier League football betting tips (19th to 21st Oct 2013)

Sat 12:45 Newcastle v Liverpool
  Newcastle's season has been a mixed one with some good results and some surprisingly poor ones. They've won at Villa and Cardiff but were beaten 3-2 at home by newly promoted Hull. Currently they're mid-table but they do top another league table, that of arrests made at football matches last season; not a stat to be proud of. Key to their good performances this season has been the availability of Yohan Cabaye and it seems the Frenchman's injury and personal problems are behind him. However, there are doubts over the fitness of centre-halves Coloccini and Steven Taylor with Williamson now preferred to Yanga-Mbiwa. Remy is the new danger man at St James's Park after taking his tally to 5 Premier League goals with a brace at Cardiff. They host a Liverpool side who are level on points with league leaders Arsenal after successive victories away at Sunderland and at home to Palace. This game promises to be more difficult but with striking duo Sturridge and suarez back in tandem, goals are virtually guaranteed. The only time they've failed to score in the top flight this season was back in mid-September at Anfield when Southampton beat them by a single goal and Suarez was still suspended. Whether they stick to their 3-5-2 away from home remains to be seen but Rodgers has a strong squad available although Coutinho, Allen and Johnson remain injury doubts. The Magpies will need to up their game if they're to profit from this one but Liverpool look favourites.
Away Win 1-2
Sat 15:00 Arsenal v Norwich
  The Gunners' 10-game winning streak came to an end at the Hawthorns immediately prior to the international break when they could only draw. However they remain at the top of the table on goals scored, level on points with Liverpool and 2 points clear of 3rd-placed Chelsea. Arsenal always look capable of scoring but were made to work hard for their point and can be grateful that the likes of old boy Anelka failed to take his chances. Excepting the opening day defeat to Villa, Wenger's side have a 100% record at the Emirates and are slowly seeing players return from injury. Both Rosicky and Arteta featured against West Brom although many are still injured including Cazorla, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Podolski, Sagna and Walcott. Target man Giroud would be Arsenal's top scorer were it not for Ramsey's fine form but they don't have many options up top and forgotten man Bendtner was called in to action for the last 5 minutes at West Brom. They host a Norwich side who's most recent away result was a single goal victory at the Britannia. That win lifted them on to 7 points and put to bed the rumours that Chris Hughton's job was in jeopardy but a 3-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge leaaves them in the bottom three. The most recent news from Carrow Road is that the club is now free of any external debt but to remain debt-free, continued Premier League status is a must. Anthony Pilkington should recover from a knock that saw him miss the internationals leaving Hughton with a full-strength squad. Norwich are just lacking goals at the moment with not more than a single goal scored in a top flight game since they drew 2-2 with Everton on the opening day. The manager insists Van Wolfswinkel is the answer but they're unlikely to trouble Arsenal too much.
Home Win 2-0
  Chelsea v Cardiff
  Owner Vincent Tan has followed his determination to play in red with an equally bizarre decision to release Iain Moody as head of recruitment, one of Malky Mackay's backroom team. Replacing him with a 23-year-old whose only work experience was a summer placement at the club warrants disbelief. Despite these disagreements Mackay is committed to the task ahead at Cardiff and has been confirmed as having the final say on any transfer dealings. The Bluebirds are in the bottom half after 2 defeats from the last 3 Premier League matches with just a point separating them from a place in the drop zone. Away from home they've had a mixed bag with defeat at West Ham, a draw at Hull and a win at Fulham but Stamford Bridge is obviously a difficult place to go. Chelsea are up to third on the back of a 3-1 win at Carrow Road with their only defeat in the top flight this season coming away at Everton where they failed to score. Torres should've been back after his 1-match suspension dished out at White Hart Lane but a knee injury is likely to keep him out longer. Long-term casualty Van Ginkel is obviously out but Ashley Cole could recover from a rib injury after missing the international fixtures. This should be a comfortable win for the Blues against one of the newly promoted sides.
Home Win 2-0
  Everton v Hull
  The Toffees succumbed to their first top flight defeat of the season away at Eastlands just before the international break. Their form up until then had been creditable but Man City away is one of the toughest grounds to go to. Martinez has them playing more attacking football and Romelu Lukaku is fast looking the missing piece of the Everton jigsaw. The Belgian forward looks more adept than Jelavic in that lone striker role as well as looking far more assured in front of goal. There have been other positives for the new Everton manager with Baines cementing his place as England left-back and Barkley now fully fledged in the Toffees midfield. However, reports suggest Darren Gibson could miss the rest of the season with a knee injury sustained playing for the Republic of Ireland whilst Alcaraz and Pienaar are still struggling for fitness. They entertain a Hull side that appear to have no fear playing in the top flight. The Tigers are up to 8th in the table and are on a 4-game unbeaten stretch including wins over West Ham and away at Newcastle. Hull aren't exactly free-scoring, just 6 goals in 7 games (3 at St James's Park), but they're a cohesive unit and will frustrate most sides. Robbie Brady could return to the side that drew at home to Villa despite undergoing hernia surgery a little over 2 weeks ago. Other than that, Steve Bruce has no new injury concerns. This is the sort of game you'd expect Everton to win but Hull shouldn't be underestimated.
Home Win 1-0
  Man Utd v Southampton
  Life in the shadow of Sir Alex Ferguson becomes ever more difficult for David Moyes as a street near Old Trafford is named in the retired manager's honour. Moyes might have one of the biggest jobs in world football but it's one with no upside; success will be credited to his predecessor whilst relative failures will be conferred solely upon his shoulders. United currently lie 9th in the table after an opening 7 games to forget; they've already lost 3 top flight matches including an unthinkable 2-1 loss at home to West Brom plus they've not beaten any of their considered title challengers, drawing with Chelsea and losing to Liverpool and Man City. The weekend prior to the international break they trailed by a goal at Sunderland before turning it round to rescue the 3 points but the Mackems are bottom and that result represents something of a hollow victory. Whilst Rooney is on top form their defence looks a shambles and much work needs to be done. They host a Southampton side currently top four material and it's difficult to argue with that given their performances. The Saints play some great football whilst keeping things tight at the back; they've conceded just 3 times this season in all competitions and none since the beginning of September. On the road Southampton have already won at West Brom and Liverpool so why shouldn't they get something at Old Trafford? Pochettino's side are at full strength and with only 1 top flight defeat throughout the campaign coupled with United's dodgy form, we're backing the Saints for at least a point.
Draw 1-1
  Stoke v West Brom
  After a relatively decent start to this campaign, Stoke appear to have gone off the boil after losing their last 3 matches. Not surprisingly they were beaten at the Emirates but defeat at home to Norwich and then again away at Craven Cottage, both by a single goal, were unexpected results. The Potters have now drifted as low as 16th and only goal difference is keeping them above the relegation places. Hughes should be concerned with their recent form but the glaring problem is a lack of goals. They've scored just four times in the top flight this season and two of those came in the home victory over Palace. Excluding the League Cup, Geoff Cameron (a full-back) has been their only scorer since the beginning of September. No striker has netted in the Premier League this season and therein lies the heart of Mark Hughes's problem. They host a West Brom side on a run of 4 games undefeated of which the two most recent were a 2-1 win at Old Trafford and a 1-1 draw at home to league leaders Arsenal; the latter a game where they had the better chances and should've won. The Baggies tailed off last season and got off to a slow start this time around but they're expected to kick on now after those impressive results. Anelka still hasn't scored since signing for the club but there have been plenty of other positives from the likes of Amalfitano, Berahino and Sessegnon. The future looks bright for West Brom and a smash-and-grab at the Britannia looks tempting.
Away Win 0-1
  Swansea v Sunderland
  Sunderland remain bottom after their recent defeat to Man Utd at the Stadium of Light. A run of a single draw and 6 defeats from their opening 7 fixtures sees them propping up the rest of the league on a solitary point. No wonder Di Canio was fired; Kevin Blackwell came in as caretaker but the Mackems wasted little time in appointing Gus Poyet as the new manager. It's now well-known that Di Canio's dismissal was preceded by a player mutiny but Craig Gardner says that things couldn't be more different under Poyet with players encouraged to play with a smile. Part of the problem going forward is that Sunderland have sold their best players despite the likes of Giaccherini making a flying start at the club. They travel to the Liberty where Swansea appear to be struggling with the dual demands of Europa League and domestic football. The Swans find themselves in the bottom half of the table despite playing some good stuff. Their home fixtures to date have been very tough with United, Liverpool and Arsenal all taking points off them; a 2-2 draw with Liverpool represents their sole home reward of the season so far. Laudrup has had a number of players missing with injury but the majority should be available for selection come the weekend. Opposing manager Poyet has a massive job on his hands and it's difficult to see Swansea losing this one.
Home Win 2-0
Sat 17:30 West Ham v Man City
  The Hammers' emphatic win at White Hart Lane was completely out of the blue especially considering their main striker, Andy Carroll, is still absent with a foot injury. A couple of scrappy goals got them ahead against the run of play before Ravel Morrison's solo effort put the game beyond Spurs. That was West Ham's first away win in nine Premier League matches and lifted them to 13th in the table although only a point separates them from the relegation places. So short on striking options are the Hammers that Allardyce has eventually re-signed forward Carlton Cole on a 3-month contract after releasing him during the summer. Cole must've finally proved his fitness and could start against Man City. Pellegrini's men recovered from their shock defeat at Villa Park with an expected win over undefeated Everton at Eastlands, a result that saw them move back to 5th in the table and 3 points behind league leaders Arsenal. Those domestic results sandwiched a Champions League home defeat to current holders Bayern Munich, a game in which Joe Hart was widely criticised for a couple of glaring mistakes. The keeper was not surprisingly backed by colleagues and managed to restore some confidence during the international break. Domestically, City have still not won on the road this season so why back them now? Given the quality at their disposal, they're bound to turn their away form around at some point plus centre-half Kompany is expected to return from a thigh problem. Recent City away results will make the odds tempting for West Ham to take something from the game but realistically the away side should prevail.
Away Win 1-2
Sun 16:00 Aston Villa v Tottenham
  Mention this game and most people's thoughts will turn to Andros Townsend and his marauding performances against Montenegro and Poland in an England shirt. The young England winger scored on his full debut and came close to repeating that feat against Poland only for the woodwork to come to Szczesny's rescue. Townsend is already keeping Lamela out of the Spurs side and more performances like that will see him cement a first-team place with the injured Lennon also struggling to feature. On the domestic front, Spurs succumbed to the ultimate suckerpunch at home to West Ham most recently; trying to force the game they went behind and further offensive substitutions left them open to the counter with them eventually losing 3-0 at home. That result saw the lilywhites drop to 6th in the table and back amongst the chasing pack. They travel to Villa Park where the two sides have already met this season in the League Cup. On that occasion Spurs ran out easy 4-0 winners but this is likely to be a far more closely contested affair. An offensive Spurs could play into Villa's hands; Villa have shown their prowess on the counter this season with victories over Arsenal, Norwich and Man City. Benteke could make a timely return to the front line after training with the Belgian side since suffering a hip injury several weeks ago. Kozak will be the player likely to make way as Villa look to soak up the pressure and hit Spurs on the break. An intriguing game that could go either way but have Spurs learnt their lesson from that West Ham defeat?
Away Win 0-1
Mon 20:00 Crystal Palace v Fulham
  Only 2 places separates these sides at the wrong end of the table. Palace are second-from-bottom on a measly 3 points courtesy of a win over bottom side Sunderland at Selhurst Park. Fulham are 4 points better off but their only points on the road have also come against the Mackems when they sneaked a winner from a set play. Martin Jol's job is allegedly on the line although their recent single-goal victory over Stoke alleviated some of the pressure. A number of Fulham players appear to have suffered recent knocks but the international break could see them recover in time to make the trip across south London. Palace are definitely one of the weaker sides in the division but they've not been trounced by anyone as yet and the way they responded to Sunderland's equaliser shows there's plenty of fight within the Eagles' camp. Holloway's job could also be considered at risk given that they've lost 6 of their opening 7 fixtures making this a 'must win' game for both managers. Palace will be hoping that Dikgacoi and Gabbidon have both recovered from hamstring problems as they look to pick up points for only the second time this season. Given Fulham's record on the road, Holloway should have this earmarked as a potential victory.
Home Win 2-1
