Every week Lee Phelps from William Hill picks three bets from the big divisions around Europe. This week it's an all-English treble for your betting pleasure. Check out the free picks and the odds.

Manchester City vs. West Brom
Manuel Pellegrini’s men fell out of the Champions League with a bit of a whimper this week, losing to Barcelona. It could have been so much different if Sergio Aguero had scored his penalty, but it’s all about putting as much pressure on Chelsea as possible for City now.

It’s an ideal game for them given their record against the Baggies, they have won nine and lost none of the last 10, with West Brom getting nothing from any of their last seven trips to the Etihad, drawing the first two and losing the last five in a row.

Tony Pulis is all about getting a point on the road and I expect him to try to do that again, but he has to be wary of a wounded City and a stat about his own team too. City have scored four goals inside the first 10 minutes in their last three against West Brom, while they have conceded more goals in the opening 15 minutes of matches than any other side this season (10).

I expect Brom to make it hard for City, but to be breached eventually, so I expect a 1-0 or 2-0 home win here, with Aguero making up for his penalty miss.

Soccer pick: Man City win to nil 2.15 (23/20)

Southampton vs. Burnley
The Saints are trying to find their third wind this season, having already picked up after their pre-Christmas blip. That draw at Chelsea may just have given them the confidence to kick on again for the remaining games and get that top six finish.

Burnley are fighting for their lives of course. I don’t think the Clarets have the goal threat to beat Southampton, so Sean Dyche will surely target a point and a solid defensive display against a team who have only conceded 12 goals in their 19 home Premier League games, including 11 clean sheets.

I see a Saints win here for my soccer picks and a low scoring one with Burnley almost holding out for a much needed draw.

Soccer pick: Southampton win and under 2.5 goals 3.1 (21/10)

Newcastle vs. Arsenal
Arsene Wenger has once again fooled us all, making us think his team deserved to progress after an away goals defeat to Monaco in the Champions League. In truth they were naïve beyond belief in the home leg and got what they deserve. Wenger is a wonderfully consistent manager and knows exactly what to do when his team returns to the Premier League: win.

The Gunners are unbeaten in the last eight league games against Newcastle, winning the last six in a row, while the Magpies have failed to score in their last three home matches against them; which you should keep in mind when looking at the EPL soccer odds board.

Olivier Giroud is well worth a look if you want a goal scorer bet. He has netted six goals in five appearances against this weekend’s opponents and has six his last eight league games, as well as scoring at Monaco in the week. His attacking partner Alexis Sanchez, is also a good bet to score first. He has scored the opener more often than any other Premier League player this season.

I think Arsenal will return in style and even if Newcastle score, I can see the away team getting three.

Soccer pick: Arsenal win and over 2.5 goals 2.6 (13/10)
