Premier League Betting Tips
We are surely in for another great weekend of Premier League Football but will it be able to match the quality of last weeks games? Last weekend we saw some absolutely brilliant goals scored by Phil Jagielka and Pelle of Southampton, both will inevitably be contenders for goal of the season. This week are have some brilliant matches, Manchester United face Everton in what is likely to feature a lot of goals and Chelsea face Arsenal in very important match for both sides.
Aston Villa v Manchester City
During the week Manchester City faced Roma at the Etihad which should benefit Villa as Paul Lambert’s side have not played since last Saturday. Man City side drew the match 1-1 which was not good enough really however they do still stand a chance of making the last 16 despite sitting on just one point after two games. Anyway onto this week’s game at Villa Park, City are a very short price to win this match even though Villa beat Pellegrini’s side in this fixture last season. Yaya Toure is yet to reach the heights of last season and Fernando is expected to be out for this game which leaves Manchester City a little weak in the midfield area which could certainly play to Villa’s advantage who have made a good start to the season. Despite consecutive 3-0 defeats for Villa they sit 6th in the table and Benteke is expected to be back in the squad for Saturday’s game which will inevitably be a big boost for the team and the fans. Villa could be facing a tired City as I have already mentioned, nine of the eleven players that started against Roma in midweek are likely to start on Saturday which does mean fatigue could certainly come into play. I’m surprised at the price on offer for Villa to get a win or a draw in this match it appears to be great value.
West Ham v QPR
The late kick off on Sunday features West Ham and QPR at Upton Park. Sam Allardyce’s side have had a pretty good start to the season and they now have a relatively easy run in the League which should boost them up the table. Big Sam appears to have made some decent signings during the Summer transfer window and has now assembled a very good squad in my opinion. QPR on the other hand have struggled in the early stages of the season recording just four points from their opening six matches, if this run of form continues Harry Redknapp’s job will be under threat. Last weekend QPR faced Southampton and lost their fourth match of the season, it was a close match but Southampton could have scored 4 or 5 goals against a shaky QPR defence. West Ham on the flip side faced Man United at Old Trafford and should of got something from the match, they had 13 shots and we unfortunate to come away from the game empty handed. Based on the performances of these sides so far this season I have to side with West Ham for this encounter who look to have a well rounded side and a good manager in Sam Allardyce.
