English Premier League: Gameweek 12 Preview

It’s another round of Premier League action and I will once again attempt to navigate a way through to landing a few legs on the collective betting slip this weekend!


It’s an intriguing round of fixtures – but that’s just a nice way of saying we have a chance to win big!



Saturday 11 November


34/10 Wolves | Draw 29/10 | Tottenham 7/10 (14:30)


I know Wolves were without Pedro Neto – but they were woeful at times last weekend. I’m not sure what to make of them anymore, they seemed to be on the rise under Gary O’Neil but showed their limitations against Sheffield.


Spurs’ results aside, they have been the most consistent team in the League…that is where my money is going here, simple as that.


1/4 Manchester United | Draw 48/10 | Luton 17/2 (17:00)


Luton showed a bit of grit about themselves last time out against Liverpool, I enjoyed seeing their commitment to almost every exchange in the game! to be fair, if they could replicate the energy, they could test United.


Erik ten Hag’s side continues to make all the headlines regardless of their results, and for what it’s worth, I don’t think he deserves nearly as much criticism as he’s received.


I think United win this, but I think there is more value in the goal market…I’m going for under 2.5 goals and a home win.


1/6 Arsenal | Draw 6/1 | Burnley 14/1 (17:00)


Burnley just continue to disappoint – there is absolutely nothing to see there. I know this won’t necessarily impress too many people, but the approach Sean Dyche adopted with the Clarets was both realistic and necessary – expansive football cannot be for everyone!


Arsenal to win with whatever handicap you’d want to add, -2 seems good enough for most weekend multiples.


14/10 C Palace | Draw 22/10 | Everton 19/10 (17:00)


Palace don’t score many goals, they’ve average just about one per game, but I think the likes of Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise getting reintroduced to the squad changes that. It will be as though Uncle Roy has two new signings soon!


Everton were unlucky against Brighton, I though they got their tactics absolutely spot on and I suspect a repeat could be on the cards here. The Toffees will be happy to sit back and look to counter at Selhurst Park – and fair play to them.


I’m not sure which way this goes, so I’m going to favour the draw.



39/10 Bournemouth | Draw 31/10 | Newcastle 6/10 (19:30)


After finally getting their first win the Cherries were obliterated by City last weekend. Newcastle continues to get better and better, they had injuries, they had squad rotations in the EFL Cup and still that club just continues to perform.


The away win is surely a banker.


Sunday 12 November


6/10 Aston Villa | Draw 31/20 | Fulham 42/10 (16:00)


Fulham continue to disappoint upfront whilst Aston Villa continue to absolutely fly. Unai Emery’s side is playing with such confidence, such poise and such an impressive setup – it’s difficult to go against them.


I think 6/10 about the home win is generous, pile in.


1/5 Brighton | Draw 56/10 | Sheffield 10/1 (16:00)


Sheffield earned their very first win of the season, after earning just a solitary point from their first ten games, the Blades claimed all three points in front of their adoring fans.


Brighton won’t compromise on their approach though, they wobbled against Everton (again), and I think they make a statement here. back the hosts and over 2.5 goals


15/20 West Ham | Draw 26/10 | Nottm Forest 32/10 (16:00)


I’m so glad more people are making a bit of a noise about the nonsense circling David Moyes at the moment. West Ham lost to Brentford and as usual, the peanut gallery chimed in to claim Moyes is ‘out of his depth’ or struggling with the Hammers.


I think he’s done a great job in London; this is exactly the sort of club he thrives at, and I think they beat an inconsistent Forest side here.


4/10 Liverpool | Draw 39/10 | Brentford 52/10 (16:00)


Well, well, well – what have we here. The Bees went through a bit of a sticky patch before coming right again, but at the moment they are absolutely flying. They consolidated their massive win against Chelsea with a win over West Ham and now face a somewhat fragile Liverpool side.


Jurgen Klopp’s side were a little placid against Luton and came within a whisker of losing to the Hatters! I don’t think they had the creativity to break Luton down and lacked the certainty to put the ball into the back of the net when they had the chance.


This won’t be popular – but Brentford win. (Change my mind – @Mr_R_Liberty)


39/10 Chelsea | Draw 28/10 | Manchester City 13/20 (18:30)
