English Premier League: Gameweek 14 Preview

The Merseyside Derby

I have a bit of a pep in my step this week after bagging the treble I suggested last time out – so well done if you got involved!

The League rewards us, and prepares us, for the party mood that is December. We have some midweek games on the go this week so there’s absolutely nothing to complain about.

I’ve once again crafted a little treble…I mean if it ain’t broke, why fix it right?

Tuesday 30 November

Newcastle United 19/20
Draw 26/10
Norwich City 26/10

Eddie Howe’s debut at St. James’ Park looks a little more straightforward, whilst his Magpies are winless, they meet a struggling Norwich side. Newcastle is on a poor run but there is undoubtedly plenty of talent in their side. Norwich haven’t won on Tyneside in their last nine attempts – and there is nothing about this season which suggests that changes. The home win is tipped with confidence.

Leeds United 14/10
Draw 23/10
Crystal Palace 39/20

Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds remain a side who look to play positive, high-octane football. However, their lack of goals this season is starting to cause them harm. Their style of play is somewhat loosely based on quick transitions and a draught in front of goal cripples them.

The home side looks vulnerable against this Palace side who are having an incredibly positive season thus far. I think the away win offers more than enough value.

Wednesday 1 December

Southampton 14/10
Draw 49/20
Leicester City 37/20

This is an interesting one, after being destroyed by Chelsea, Leicester has responded well. They currently sit 10th in the league, and they can still see some light on the European places push. 

The Saints have made St. Mary’s a real sanctuary this year, having lost just once in their last six fixtures. I think both teams to score is the bet for the game though. Get on at 6/10. 

Wolves 9/10
Draw 24/10
Burnley 31/10

Burnley come into this game well rested, after their game at Spurs was called off due to adverse weather. Wolves on the other hand played out to another 0-0 draw against Norwich and were probably luck to get anything from it.

Wolves are a threat at Molineux, but I think Burnley can frustrate them. Burnley won’t see much of the ball (and I doubt that bothers them), but Wolves aren’t exactly firing on all cylinders in front of goal. I think a draw at 24/10 deserves my money here.

Watford 17/2
Draw 44/10
Chelsea 3/10

Is Chelsea’s draw at United considered two points dropped? I think so…they should have an easier time at Watford on Wednesday though. I think Romelu Lukaku comes back into the starting side – but realistically Watford cannot challenge this Chelsea side.

I’m not going to waste too much more of your time, back Chelsea with the win to nil at an incredible even money.

West Ham 19/20
Draw 5/2
Brighton 11/4

Brighton could be one of the unluckiest sides in the League now. I don’t think they are playing particularly badly…they just aren’t clinical enough and have almost lost all their momentum.

West Ham are incredible at home though, I said if they had played City in London last time out, I would have tipped them…their performance hasn’t changed my mind (all things considered) so I’ve got to go with them here again.

Everton 6/1
Draw 4/1
Liverpool 4/10

I’m intrigued to see the reception Rafa Benitez gets at Goodison Park. Evertonian’s are growing frustrated – which given Rafa’s recent comments will only compound issues – and yet I think the visiting fans will greet their old boss warmly (with a possibly hint of sarcasm considering the troubles at Everton anyway!).

Nevertheless, Everton have been horrible. I’ve tried and tried again to find a reason to suggest they can get anything out of this game, but I don’t think it’s going to happen. Liverpool at 4/10 is a banker for everything to go into. Get on.

Aston Villa 7/1
Draw 42/10
Manchester City 7/20

Steven Gerrard has had a dream start to his honeymoon period at Villa Park. He has seen his side win twice in as many games and he’ll likely relish the chance to have a crack at the champions.

Aston Villa has lost 12 of their last 14 meetings with City in the League, and whilst I wouldn’t mind seeing the home side cause the upset, I just can’t see where it might come from. City are on a serious run, one which has been as dominant on the road as it is in Manchester. I think the away side win – but for more value consider adding both teams to score to the mix.

Thursday 2 December

Tottenham 6/10
Draw 3/1
Brentford 42/10

These two teams will both want to get some degree of consistency into their season. Spurs have had a rocky start, but they are slowly but surely showing signs of Antonio Conte’s impact. Their wide areas are becoming more prevalent to getting their side up the field and their overloads in attacking areas include their defensive players.

This will ask real questions of Brentford, but their performance this season has remained incredible. Ivan Tovey has been as big a player for the Bees, that Son Heung-Min has been for Spurs.

I don’t think this game is as straightforward as some might suggest…Spurs might get a result! Both teams to score at 9/10 makes the most sense for me though.

Manchester United 1/1
Draw 26/10
Arsenal 51/20
TREBLE @ 5/1
Newcastle Win 19/20
Chelsea To Win To Nil 1/1
Liverpool Win 4/10
