BETTING PREVIEW: Premier League Heayweights Clash As Arsenal Face United


Chelsea remain unbeaten at the top of the Premier League, and are 2/9 to gain another 3 points on Saturday. It will be a major surprise if they fail to beat WBA at Stamford Bridge on but I do not expect a rout and go for 1-0 at 13/2 as the value score line. Backing halftime Draw full time Chelsea has been a winning wager on many occasions over last few seasons and is a value 3/1 chance in this fixture as The Baggies could easily hold out till half time.


Everton at 3/4 will be popular to beat West Ham at Goodison Park where they are always hard to beat, the Hammers have done better than expected this season mainly thanks to a more attractive style of football they are playing especially at Upton Park but this could fall into Everton’s hands at Goodison Park and I take a home win here.


Sunderland have been hard to predict this season but can secure a point against Leicester City, whom have not kicked on after an impressive start to the season a draw at 12/5 looks over the odds here.


Manchester City should be too strong for Swansea but 4/11 is very short for a team who showed great heart to come from behind to beat Arsenal last time out, and have proved a tough nut to crack for several big name opponents this season. The draw at 4/1 looks a big price with Swansea 7/1 for a famous win.


Newcastle United are on a roll with 5 wins in row in all competitions and were impressive at West Brom last time out at 3/4 they will be popular to make it six in a row but they have never been a club I like to back at odds on! QPR are playing better than their league position suggests, but it will be their performances and points they pick up at Loftus Road which will be the key to remaining in the top flight. They are 4/1 for an unlikely 3 points and 11/4 to return to London with a point in what should be a decent game.


Stoke City will be popular at 7/10 to beat Burnley but The Clarets at 4/1 could be a sporting bet to follow up their first Premier League win of the season with another, while I would not put anyone off backing the draw here at 11/4.


Arsenal v Manchester United is always one if the most eagerly awaited fixtures and United tend to do better at The Emirates than most. Despite not having won away this season, United are a tempting price at 23/10 for 3 points on Saturday night despite a huge injury list, Wayne Rooney who was hugely pumped up in Glasgow on Tuesday night when scoring twice will be popular and looks good value to score first at 6/1, while The Gunners are 6/5 to win match and will have Danny Welbeck up front, available at 11/2 to net first but I make United as a value play in what should be entertaining night in North London.


Liverpool will be popular at 5/6 to beat Crystal Palace on Sunday but even with a good lead, as they found out last season, it is a tough place to go, so a draw at 13/5 looks value even though 100/30 is a decent price on a home win for Palace although I would be surprised if Liverpool lost.


Tottenham will expect 3 points on Sunday at Hull and at 23/20 are likely to be a popular bet to get them, but Hull are no mugs and this might be tougher than Spurs think. The bookies are likely to see plenty of doubles on Liverpool and Tottenham and will be very happy if either fail to win.

AVFC vs Soton

Southampton are providing one of the stories of the season so far and are 4/5 to continue their great run at Villa Park on Monday night, if I had been quoted 7/2 on Villa winning this fixture at start of season i would have questioned the odds compilers judgement but that is the price they are  and even though they are in desperate form is surely too big. Ronald Koeman has done a sensational job at St Mary’s with The Saints and in form striker Graziano Pelle is 4/1 to score the first goal on Monday night.
