Here is your rundown for Premier League's action for this upcoming New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. Get all the important info you need to make the smart wagers and make sure you start 2017 with extra money in your pocket.

Goals Expected At The Liberty Stadium

Swansea sacked manager Bob Bradley in midweek and they start life without the American on Saturday with a home match with Bournemouth. These two sides are in poor form with Swansea losing four of their last five matches and Bournemouth also struggling with three losses in their last four games. Neither side can be backed with any confidence but the one thing I can predict in this one is goals and both teams to score at 1.62 is the best bet in the match as a yes has come in six times in the last nine Swansea matches and in four of the last six matches for the Cherries.

Burnley To Continue Impressive Home Form

What have Burnley got to do to impress the bookies? The Clarets' are different class at home and shocking away from home, yet the are still being generously priced up week in and week out for games at Turf Moor. At home Sean Dyche's side have won six of their ten matches and with Sunderland boasting just ONE away win all season how on earth can the home side be installed as a general 2.40 to win this? Burnley have made me a lot of money in their home matches already this season and I am not deserting a winning strategy and at the prices they are my best bet on the New Years Eve Premier League coupon.

Another Chelsea Win To Nil

Chelsea are a very heavy 1.28 favourite to end 2016 with another three points when Stoke arrive at Stamford Bridge. The Blues' have gone on an incredible winning run of 12 successive matches and they head into the New Year at the top of the table and heavy odds on to win the Premier League title. Antonio Conte's side will win this but 1.28 is far too short to get involved in but in ten of their 12 wins they've won without conceding and at 2.05 with BetVictor on another Chelsea win to nil that looks the best way to get with the Premier League favourites again.

Tough One To Call At St Mary's

The trickiest match to have a strong opinion of in the Premier League this weekend is the match between Southampton and West Brom at St Mary's. Both of these two sides are either hit or miss and both arrive on the back of some poor form with Southampton embarrassed in their last home match in the 4-1 defeat at the hands of Tottenham. I am not confident to put a strong bet up in this one but I do have a lean towards goals and a small play on both teams to score at 2.30 mightn't be a bet in a single but it's worthy of inclusion in a BTTS accumulator.

Another Premier League Nightmare For The Champions

It's turning into a Premier League nightmare for champions Leicester. The Foxes are in real danger of being relegated a season after lifting the title and defeat at home to West Ham is a real possibility. Leicester have only one win in their last seven matches and home defeats against Everton and West Brom in recent weeks suggest that they can't be trusted at 2.10.

After a run of losses against the big boys West Ham arrive in the East Midlands in the best form of the season with three successive wins and 3.80 abut Slaven Bilic's side looks a massive price. The draw is a big contender though and instead of going all in on West Ham I am going to take the Hammers' to be the happier of the two and I am taking West Ham +0.5 goal at 1.83.

A Routine Win For In-Form Man United 

The team that I want to follow in the New Year is Manchester United and Jose Mourinho's side are the bankers on the Premier League coupon on Saturday when they welcome Middlesbrough to Old Trafford. United are 1.25 for the win and with five successive wins and 11 matches without defeat whose to argue against those odds. United haven't been beating anybody very convincingly, but they've been getting better and better every week with their best performance of the season in last weeks 3-1 win over Sunderland and a similar performances is expected again.

Middlesbrough are 17.00 for a shock win and with three defeats on the spin and without an away win since August this could be a very long afternoon and I like United -1.5 on the asian handicap at 1.80 as they are going to give someone a hiding sooner rather than later and this could be that occasion.

Goals, Goals, Goals, At Anfield

The biggest match of the New Years weekend is at Anfield where Liverpool host Man City in a potential Premier League classic. The bookies make Liverpool their 2.36 favourites which is available with almost every layer and with three successive wins after a mini blip at the start of the month they are proving a popular selection with the punters.

City arrive in Merseyside in form as well with three wins on the spin and they are priced up at 3.60 acoss the board and with a draw no good for either side they will be going all out for the victory. This is as tough as it gets to find a winner of and for me the value plays lie far away from the match outcome and the areas we have to concentrate for the winners are on the goals markets.

In eight of Liverpool's last 12 matches both teams have scored and that is exactly the same record at City and the 1.55 on both teams scoring again with WilliamHill is a banker for the NY Eve BTTS coupon or for any big staking clients in a single. Over 2.5 goals has also come in as a winner in four of the last five Liverpool matches and in four of the last six over at City and again that looks another banker at the general 1.62 that is with all the bookies.

Spurs To Go Marching On

We start 2017 at Vicarage Road when Watford welcome Tottenham. I've been impressed with Watford this season but last week against Crystal Palace I honestly can't recall as poor performance as the Hornet's produced in the opening 30 minutes and if they start off like that in this one it could get very messy for the hosts.

Walter Mazzari's side is decimated by injuries and with confidence at a season low they just can't be considered even at the general price of 5.50 for the win. Whilst Watford was putting in one of their worst performances of the season, Tottenham put in their best in their come from behind 4-1win against  Southampton at St Mary's. Mauricio Pochettino's side is back to full strength and a strong second half of the season is expected from them.

Spurs' come into the New Year full of confidence with five wins from their last six matches and the pleasing thing for their supporters is that they are scoring goals for fun since the return from injury of England international Harry Kane. In the last 11 matches Tottenham have scored in ten of them and in their last six matches they've scored at least two goals in five and they are a confident selection to bang in a few again. The visitors are 1.70 with Coral and William Hills to win this and that is a price that I don't expect to last come kick-off time and my advice is to get stuck in quickly.

The Gunner's To Ease To A Win In This London Derby

Sam Allardyce has had a full week to work with his new Crystal Palace side but the former England manager will need a bit more time to get something from a New Years Day trip to face Arsenal. Palace did show signs of improvement in Big Sam's first game in charge last week in the 1-1 draw at Watford, but the Hornewerehere woeful and if they failed to get a win at Vicarage Road, well it's very hard to see them getting anything from a trip to The Emirates.

The visitors are a massive 10.00 to win this but although they will be more organized in defence 27 goals conceded in their last ten Premier League games is the chief reason why they find themselves in a serious relegation battle.Arsenal bounced back to winning ways after back-to-back losses with a 1-0 win at home to West Brom last weekend and at the Emirates Liverpool are still the only side to beat them in the Premier League on the opening day of the season.

The Gunners' are just 1.33 for the win, which I couldn't back, but I believe that once they get the opening goal I think they can kick on an ease to victory. The first bet I like in this one is Arsenal -1.5 goals on the Asian handicap market at 2.00 With BetVictor which will see us collect if Arsenal win by more than one goal something that they've managed in two of their last three home matches against bottom-half sides.
