In-Form Tottenham To Continue Their Unbeaten Home Record

The first Premier League game this week sees Tottenham host West Brom at White Hart Lane. Say this very quietly but Spurs' are going about their business very well at the moment and they should take another three points from this one. The home side are 1.33 for the win and are unbeaten at home all season and have won their last six games and they are a confident selection to win again. 1.33 is a short price, but it's one for the weekend accumulator but Tottenham's last eight wins have all been won by more than one goal and I like them on the Asian handicap market -1.5 at 1.91 with BetVictor.

An Easy Afternoon For The Gunners

Swansea's decision to sack Bob Bradley saw them rewarded immediately with a Premier League win over Crystal Palace but the success was their only victory in their last five and I can't see them winning again even at the 7.00 available. The Gunners' are a very short 1.50 favourite and with three wins in their last four visits to the Liberty Stadium they should win again. After two losses just before Christmas for the Gunners' they've bounced back with four matches without defeat and have scored EIGHT goals in that period and more goals are expected in South Wales and I like Arsenal strong 1.50 chance to win the game but again I like them on the Asian handicap market at -1.5 at 2.30.

Close Encouter At The KC Stadium

HULL are another team who recently parted company with their manager and it's reaping dividends already at the KC Stadium after Marco Silva was put in charge. The Tigers' played very well in last weeks 2-0 FA Cup win over Swansea and then held Manchester United for long periods of their League Cup semi-final second leg before losing 2-0. The home side are decimated by injuries and where unable to put out a full subs bench at Old Trafford and that is the chief reason why I can't back them at the 3.40 available on them for the win. Bournemouth have produced some great results already this season but Eddie Howe's side disappointed last week in the 2-1 FA Cup defeat at Millwall and away from the south coast they've lost four of their last five matches. Under new manager Silva the Tigers' a lot strongly defensively and they lack a goal scoring threat and under 2.5 goals on Saturday afternoon looks the value at 1.91.

A Very Tight London Derby

IT'S a London derby at the aptly named London Stadium this weekend when Sam Allardyce returns to West Ham with his struggling Crystal Palace side. The Hammers' were awful in last weeks 5-0 FA Cup home defeat to Man City and their preparations have been dealt a massive blow after star man Dimitri Payet has requested a transfer. West Ham are just 2.20 for the win and with three straight defeats where they have failed to score a goal that is not a price that I would be rushing to take. Palace have yet to win under their new manager and with just win in their last 15 matches they can't be trusted either at 3.70 and the match markets should be avoided. Big Sam is going to make it very difficult for his former employees and goals will be very hard to come by and both teams to score "no" looks the best bet in the derby at 2.25 that is available at BetVictor.

A Very Difficult One To Call At The Stadium Of Light

Sunderland host Stoke at the Stadium of Light this weekend and of all the Premier League matches on the coupon this weekend this looks a tricky one to call. The home side haven't won in their last four matches but at home they've only lost once in their last six games which was at the hands of league leaders Chelsea. David Moyes' side are 3.10 for the win and they may get it, but Stoke did beat them 2-0 in the reverse fixture but they've only one just once in their last seven matches and I can't trust them either at 2.50 and my conclusion in this one is no bet.

Struggling Watford Not To Be Trusted At Home To Middlesbrough

Watford are a team struggling for any kind of form and they are well worth opposing at home against Middlesbrough. The Hornets haven't won in their last five Premier League matches and are still a side that could very easily get dragged into a relegation battle if they don't find a winning formula soon. The home side are 2.75 to win this and that isn't a price that we could possibly contemplate taking in the form that they are in, but Middlesbrough aren't much better either with just one win in their last six Premier League games and they can't be trusted either at 3.00 it this looks another match to swerve.

Goals Expected At Stamford Bridge

Champions Leicester host Premier League leaders on Saturday night and this looks a lot tougher than the bookies odds suggest. Chelsea bounced back after their defeat at Tottenham with an FA Cup win against Peterbrough but 1.66 does look a very, very short price for me. Leicester are having a nightmare of a season but they've only lost once in their last six home matches which include a fantastic 4-2 win over Man City and they were excellent last week in the 2-1 FA Cup win at Everton. Claudio Ranieri's side will be well up for this and I expect a big performance and I am very tempted by the 5.50, but instead of any getting involved in goals. These two sides have played twice already this season and in both matches over 2.5 goals has been a winning bet and at 1.91 that looks the best bet in the match again with William Hills.

Goals Galore At Goodison Park

Sunday's first Premier League match comes from Goodison Park where Everton host Manchester City in the lunch-time kick-off. After a bright start on Merseyside for manager Ronald Koeman things have turned slightly sour for the Dutchman after just three wins in their last 12 and being dumped out of the FA Cup last weekend at home to Leicester. The home side are 4.50 to win this which on the current form can't be considered and after a poor run of form City make the short trip in great form with five wins in their last six. Pep Guardiola's side put in their best performance of the season last weekend with a 5-0 win at West Ham in the FA Cup and they will be popular at 1.83 to win again and in those six matches 16 goals and goals looks the way to go again. Both teams scored in the reverse fixture earlier in the season and both teams to score is the way to go again at 1.66.

Another Close On Between These Premier League Giants

The biggest game of the weekend and one of the biggest matches in the entire Premier League season is the final game on Sunday between arch-rivals Manchester United and Liverpool from Old Trafford. This is an fascinating clash between Jose Mourinho and Jurgen Klopp and I expect it to be a lot better than the dull goalless draw the two played out at Anfield in October. United are the in-form side in the Premier League and a win on Sunday will see them extend their winning record to TEN matches and install them as real title challengers but 2.20 does look short despite their great form. The home side are as short as even money to win this and although Liverpool have failed to win in their last three matches the 3.60 on the visitors does look a big price. I think we will get a winner in this one, but I wouldn't be confident which way it will go but I am expecting this to be tight and under 2.5 goals which has surprisingly come in four times in the last six Liverpool matches and in seven of the last ten United games looks the best bet at 1.91 with William Hills.
