Another 100% strike rate last week – somewhat of a trademark from PremiershipTips, we’re looking to continue our hot form this week.
Arsenal face a tricky opposition at home to in-form Hull. Manchester United should pick up an easy three points at home to Watford. Can Liverpool register their first Premier League win in 2017? Chelsea and Manchester City should have comfortable weekends.
Here are this week’s Premiership Tips:
Liverpool vs Tottenham Hotspur
Given the form of these two teams in 2017 I am actually surprised to see Liverpool as the favourites heading into Saturday evening’s match. Home field advantage et al. Jurgen Klopp’s side can’t buy a win currently and are facing a Tottenham side which contains Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen.
The Liverpool defence still remains leaky and regardless of which goalkeeper plays for the home side they both look dire at defending set pieces. Tottenham have a great defensive record this season as the Liverpool attack has dried up in recent weeks – shut out at Hull City last weekend.
Tottenham have lost the fewest games in the Premier League so far this season and I don’t see them falling victim at Anfield on Saturday.
Best bet: Lay Liverpool at 2.34 with Betfair
Burnley vs Chelsea
It’s just a matter of time now before Chelsea win the 2016-17 Premier League title. No European adventure only plays into their hands against the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal whom dropped too many points even when they were on a break from European action anyway.
Burnley have a fantastic record at Turf Moor this season but I don’t see the likes of Ben Mee, Matthew Lowton and co being able to match up to Eden Hazard, Diego Costa and what the Premier League leaders throw at them.
Antonio Conte has done a phenomenal job in his first season in charge at Stamford Bridge, and like what he did at Juventus previously, doesn’t drop too many points to the bottom half sides. An away win.
Best bet: Chelsea to win is 1.44 with Betfair
Bournemouth vs Manchester City
Manchester City will be looking to continue their decent run when they travel down south to attack-minded Bournemouth on Monday Night Football.
Pep Guardiola’s side left it late to beat Swansea last weekend but the Citizen’s should fair very well versus the Cherries defence that shipped six goals at Everton last time out.
Gabriel Jesus is finding space in the box and has the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva and Raheem Sterling setting him up. Eddie Howe only knows one brand of football and that will play into the hands of the visitors.
