Archived Premier League football betting tips (2nd to 3rd Dec 2014)

Tues 19:45 Burnley v Newcastle
  Newcastle suffered their blip as expected but the trip to Upton Park was always going to be a tough one. In the end just a single goal separated the two sides but it was enough to break the Magpies' run of six straight victories in all competitions. Sissoko's red card means he misses the trip to Turf Moor along with Jack Colback who's suspended after picking up a fifth booking of the campaign. Opponents Burnley remain threatened by relegation with a point enough to keep them off the foot of the table. However, Burnley's form is much improved following two wins and a draw in their last three games. Danny Ings netted from the spot late on against Villa to claim a point and continue his own scoring run since returning from injury. Despite the Clarets taking 7 points from the last possible 9, I can see Newcastle bouncing back from that West Ham defeat.
Away Win 0-1
  Leicester v Liverpool
  Leicester hit the bottom of the table despite a valiant fightback last weekend at Loftus Road. They went in front early on only to concede twice before half-time but fought back to level terms in the second half. However opponents Rangers had the final say and the Foxes left with nothing. Despite the defeat Nigel Pearson can draw a positive after seeing his side score twice, their first goals since they drew with Burnley back in early October. The worry for the manager will be that they could only draw with the Clarets and failed to take anything at QPR, both guaranteed to be relegation rivals in the coming months. They host a Liverpool side relieved to break a run of three defeats with a single-goal victory over Stoke. The game was a tight one but a brave late header from Glen Johnson broke the deadlock. Now details emerge that the full back isn't particularly desperate for a new deal adding to the rumours of ill-feeling surrounding Anfield. Balotelli and Sturridge are out plus the Reds have lost 4 of 6 away fixtures but they should have enough quality to beat Leicester.
Away Win 0-1
  Man Utd v Stoke
  United hold on to fourth following their comfortable win over Hull at Old Trafford, their third successive victory including the 2-1 win at the Emirates. Di Maria limped off against the Tigers with a hamstring injury whilst Rooney was hobbling at the end. Other players out include Blind, Jones and Shaw although Rojo is back to bolster the defence and both Falcao and Herrera made substitute appearances. They host a mid-table Stoke side looking to avoid a third successive defeat. The Potters were recently beaten at home by relegation-threatened Burnley and a late Glen Johnson header saw them leave Anfield with nothing. Stoke last kept a clean sheet in the single-goal victory over Newcastle at the back end of September and that's unlikely to change at Old Trafford.
Home Win 2-0
  Swansea v QPR
  Another home victory lifted QPR off the foot of the table but inferior goal difference keeps them in the bottom three. Rangers are yet to win on the road this season having lost all six away matches to date. Those six defeats have seen them concede 15 times whilst scoring just two goals of their own. Sandro's ruled out whilst both Zamora and Ferdinand are touch and go. They travel to the Liberty where Swansea failed to maintain their 1-goal lead with Shelvey giving away a penalty duly converted by Jedinak. The Swans dominated most of the game but have conceded 13 points from leading positions this season. Currently 8th, they're gradually slipping down the table but should be good enough to beat Redknapp's QPR.
Home Win 2-0
Tues 20:00 Crystal Palace v Aston Villa
  Three draws on the bounce for Villa represents an improvement but they've still not won a game since mid-September when they beat Liverpool at Anfield. Last weekend they were a goal ahead at Turf Moor until Danny Ings converted a penalty in the 87th minute and were lucky not to concede a winner after seeing out late pressure. That result sees them move two points above the relegation places but improvement is required. Keane departed the Villa set-up last week amid rumours of a fallout with players but it remains to be seen if Villa benefit. Defensive injuries still hamper them ahead of the trip to Selhurst Park where Palace recently put three past Liverpool. A hard-fought draw at the Liberty last weekend sees them two places above Villa on goal difference but confidence must be higher. Think the Eagles might break Villa's sequence of draws.
Home Win 1-0
  West Brom v West Ham
  The Hammers are fifth after beating Newcastle at Upton Park last weekend. They put an end to the Magpies' run of six victories in all competitions whilst boosting their own record of just a single defeat in the last seven top flight matches. Allardyce welcomes back Winston Reid following the centre-half's suspension last weekend but Noble, Song and Sakho are all doubtful. They travel to the Hawthorns where West Brom were turned over by Arsenal last weekend. It was a third successive defeat for the Baggies and all without scoring. Their home form's not been good this season with just a single win from seven Premier League matches. Manager Alan Irvine has the boo boys on his back, not surprising considering they're one of three sides just two points above the drop zone. Given that West Ham have struggled to keep a clean sheet on the road, West Brom might score but they're unlikely to have the final say.
Away Win 1-2
Wed 19:45 Arsenal v Southampton
  A massive game for both sides hoping to challenge for honours this season. Southampton are currently six points and three places above their counterparts but were dealt a reality check last weekend at home to Man City. City were denied a blatant penalty in the first half but went on to dominate and ran out convincing winners despite ending the game with 10 men. The Saints shouldn't be too disillusioned with their own performance but they'll want to take something from the game at the Emirates bearing in mind they host United at the weekend. No points from three games would seriously dent any top four ambitions they might have. Arsenal have Champions League ambitions of their own although they've not been the most convincing of late losing at Swansea and then at home to United. However, the Gunners bounced back at the Hawthorns thanks to a Welbeck header. Wenger has been openly criticised but is without a whole host of injured players whilst Southampton are missing Morgan Schneiderlin, a key performer for them this season. A tight game but Arsenal to do enough.
Home Win 2-1
  Chelsea v Tottenham
  A massive improvement from Spurs saw them beat Everton in what was billed a battle of two sides doing well in the Europa League but failing to match those performances in the Premiership. They were fluent in their passing and pressed from the front forcing the Toffees into mistakes. Tottenham's record on the road has been good with just a single defeat in the top flight this season but they won't see an opponent sent off every week. Moving up to 7th in the table they travel to league leaders Chelsea who surprisingly could only draw last weekend at the Stadium of Light. However, the Blues are yet to taste defeat and are six points clear at the top of the table. Mourinho's side have won all six home fixtures this season and difficult to see Spurs upsetting the apple cart. Costa is suspended after picking up a fifth booking whilst Chiriches looks a fresh doubt for Tottenham.
Home Win 2-1
  Everton v Hull
  Both these sides suffered defeat last weekend but hosts Everton are faring somewhat better than opponents Hull. The Toffees are mid-table but a very good Tottenham side ended their run of five Premier League games without defeat. Following their win in Wolfsburg, Mirallas got Everton off to a great start at White Hart Lane but they weren't banking on the workrate from a Spurs side that constantly forced errors. However Martinez's side will be pleased to get back in front of their own fans and could welcome back Naismith and McCarthy who recently sustained hamstring injuries. They host a Hull side well beaten at Old Trafford last weekend, their fourth defeat on the bounce. The Tigers have won just once in their last 12 games in all competitions, a poor record that leaves them teetering above the relegation places on goal difference. Bruce isn't helped by Ramirez's suspension nor Herenandez's return to Uruguay for personal reasons. Hull are never guilty of lacking spirit and determination but another defeat looks on the cards.
Home Win 2-1
  Sunderland v Man City
  Sunderland did immensely well to hold out against Chelsea with a disciplined performance that saw them miss late chances to take all three points. They're the first side this season to stop the Blues from scoring and the goalless draw extended their unbeaten run to four matches. However the Black Cats are only three points above the drop zone and will be keen for thier current run to continue. That said, the games don't get any easier and this weekend they host a Man City side with league leaders Chelsea in their sights after winning 3-0 at St Mary's. Toure didn't open the scoring until early in the second half but they wrapped the game up despite finishing with 10 men. Demichelis will come in for the suspended Mangala though Kompany is a doubt after limping off at the end. Despite slip-ups this season, City have lost just on Premier League away fixture and on current form, unlike Chelsea, look capable of unlocking the Sunderland door.
Away Win 0-2
