Norwich vs Brighton Betting Tips

Norwich City’s hopes of remaining in the Premier League appear to be all but over now. Writing ahead of their Wednesday night clash with Arsenal, the Canaries are on just 21 points at the bottom of the table, six away from 17th place and should they lose to the Gunners as is expect at the Emirates Stadium, they will play host to Brighton & Hove Albion this weekend on the back of six defeats in seven games.

The main issue in the second half of the campaign for the Canaries has been their lack of attacking quality. Daniel Farke’s men have failed to score in six of their last seven Premier League fixtures ahead of Wednesday’s clash with Arsenal, with Teemu Pukki struggling to recapture the form that saw him among the divisional top scorers in the early stages of the Premier League season. It’s worth nothing that even in the one game they did win in that run, the Norfolk side kept a clean sheet, meaning seven consecutive No on BTTS bets have come in on Norwich matches.

Brighton & Hove Albion meanwhile were beaten 0-3 at the Amex Stadium by a rampant Manchester United side in midweek, just a week after their goalless draw away at Leicester City. Goals have been at a premium in the Seagulls’ games of late too and that No on BTTS bet has come in four times in their last five Premier League matches. As such, 1/1 looks like a great price for another No on BTTS bet when these two goal-shy teams go head to head at Carrow Road on Saturday.

Leicester vs Crystal Palace Betting Tips

Crystal Palace have managed to keep their heads above the relegation scrap occurring at the bottom of the Premier League table through keeping things tight this season. Roy Hodgson is acutely aware of the lack of goals in his team, but has compensated by making his team very difficult to break down and as a result, they have the seventh-best defensive record in the league in terms of goals conceded.

Before losing their last two matches against Liverpool and Burnley, the Eagles had kept four consecutive clean sheets, so they may still feel confident of keeping this Leicester side’s chances to a minimum on Saturday afternoon at the King Power. It’s fair to say that the Foxes haven’t looked the same team since the league’s return, picking up just two points from a possible nine and falling to defeat at Everton on Wednesday night – a result that gives the likes of Manchester United and Wolverhampton Wanderers hope of chasing down their spot in the top four.

The Foxes have managed to find the net just twice across these three games, and indeed they drew three blanks in their last four matches before the campaign was brought to a temporary halt. With the likes of Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho clearly mis-firing at the moment, this strong Eagles defence should keep them to a maximum of one goal in this clash as Brendan Rodgers’ men falter in their chase for Champions League football.

Manchester United vs Bournemouth Betting Tips

Bruno Fernandes’ arrival has transformed the shape of this Manchester United team. The Portuguese attacking midfielder joined the club from Sporting Lisbon in January and his impact has been instant. The Red Devils have now gone 15 games unbeaten in all competitions and are hot on the tails of Chelsea and Leicester in the chase for a top four finish, although their current position of fifth could be enough to secure Champions League football should Manchester City’s UEFA ban be upheld.

Fernandes’ put in an inspirational display on Tuesday night, scoring twice in his side’s 0-3 victory at Brighton & Hove Albion and he now has six goals to his name in all competitions. Capable of scoring with his now trademark long-range strikes as well as arriving late in the box as support for the strikers, it seems that Premier League defenders are taking some time to get used to the 25 year old – but he has taken no time at all to get used to the Premier League.

On Saturday afternoon, an out-of-sorts Bournemouth are the visitors to Old Trafford. The Cherries were embarrassed 0-4 at home to Newcastle United on Wednesday night and have now picked up just one point from the last available 21. Eddie Howe’s men have been simply woeful at the back of late and whilst we’re also tempted by the handicap markets as a result, the odds of 6/4 on yet another Fernandes goal are too tempting to miss as our recommended bet for this one.

Wolves vs Arsenal Betting Tips

Wolverhampton Wanderers are chasing down a spot in the Champions League next season. After both Chelsea and Leicester City dropped points in midweek, Wolves are just two points away from the top four and given that Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have returned from lockdown by picking up three consecutive wins, they must be heading into these final six matches feeling confident of chasing down a spot in the Champions League – which they could also do through the Europa League route when the tournament returns in Germany next month.

Wolves’ defensive performances have been particularly impressive since the return from lockdown, as they’ve yet to concede a goal in their three matches, meaning that they’ve now kept an impressive seven clean sheets in their last eight matches. This weekend, the Black Country outfit take on an Arsenal side that sit one place and six points behind them in the table and have struggled defensively at times – but improved at the back in their last two games.

A 4-0 win at home to Norwich City on Wednesday night followed up a 0-2 victory at Southampton and it seems that Arsenal have actually made defensive improvements since Brazilian centre-back David Luiz was suspended for a sending off at Manchester City. Four of Arsenal’s last five games have seen No on BTTS bets come in as well as the seven out of eight games for Wolves, so again 19/20 on No on BTTS looks like good value at Molineux.

Chelsea vs Watford Betting Tips

Chelsea’s top four ambitions took a hit with a last-gasp defeat to London rivals West Ham in midweek, ending a three-game win streak. On Saturday night, they face relegation-threatened Watford, who have picked up just one point from an available nine since the league’s return and as a result sit just one point above the relegation zone. The Blues are favourites to win for a reason, but we see more value in a different market here, with the hosts priced at just 2/5 to earn the win.

Three of the five goals scored at the London Stadium on Wednesday night were scored in the second half and that means that eight of the last ten Chelsea games have seen more goals scored in the second half. Indeed, the reverse fixture between these two sides at Vicarage Road earlier in the campaign also saw two goals scored in the second half compared to just one before the break.

Three goals were scored between 70 and 82 minutes in Watford’s 3-1 defeat to Southampton over the weekend, meaning that five of the Hornets’ last six games have also seen more goals scored in the second half than the first. With such a clear pattern in games involving either of these two teams, we’re backing the evens bet for more goals to be scored in the second half than the first at Stamford Bridge.

Burnley vs Sheffield United Betting Tips

Sheffield United’s fight for a Champions League spot was always likely to be let down by their lack of goals. The Blades have been on the tails of the top four throughout the majority of the campaign but at the time of writing have picked up just one point from an available nine since the return of the Premier League following the temporary suspension of the season. Worryingly for Chris Wilder, his side have failed to score in all three of those games and their goals total is the sixth-lowest in the division despite their league position of 9th.

After a tough home fixture against Tottenham Hotspur on Thursday night, United make the short trip to Lancashire to take on a Burnley outfit that have crept above them in the table prior to that fixture. The Clarets were thumped 5-0 by Manchester City on their return to league action, but have since ground out 1-0 wins over both Watford and Crystal Palace and they remain as difficult as ever to break down under the pragmatic Sean Dyche, so this will prove to be a very tough game for the visitors.

Having kept clean sheets in their last two games, the Clarets have now earned shut-outs in no fewer than 41% of their Premier League matches, a record only beaten by the champions Liverpool at the time of writing. Given that the Blades have failed to score in their last three Premier League games (before the clash with Spurs) and have such a poor attacking record, we envisage another successful evening for the likes of Ben Mee and Nick Pope in this fixture.

Newcastle vs West Ham Betting Tips

After scoring 24 goals for West Bromwich Albion during a loan spell with the Championship club last year, striker Dwight Gayle will have been hoping for a better Premier League campaign this time around. However, the Newcastle striker’s season has been blighted with injuries and he has struggled for consistent minutes despite the lack of goalscoring form from his fellow forwards Joellinton and Andy Carroll.

Perhaps the 29 year old has come back fresh from the enforced season break as he finally opened his league account for the campaign by scoring the opener in the 1-1 draw with Aston Villa just over a week ago. He may have missed a glaring chance in the FA Cup quarter final defeat to Manchester City last weekend, but it didn’t take long for the ex-Crystal Palace man to put that disappointment behind him as he again found the net as the Magpies eased to a 1-4 win over AFC Bournemouth on Wednesday night.

The visitors to St James’ Park this time around are a West Ham United outfit that picked up a huge home win over Chelsea in midweek to keep their heads above the relegation zone. Given that they haven’t kept a clean sheet in 12 Premier League games however, in a run stretching back to New Year’s Day, they still have plenty of work to do to escape the drop zone. We can see the rejuvenated Gayle getting his third goal in three Premier League games as the Hammers make the trip to Tyneside on Sunday.

Liverpool vs Aston Villa Betting Tips

William Hill: Get 20/1 on Liverpool to score vs Aston Villa

Regardless of what happens in their Thursday night clash with Manchester City, the Reds should still be expected to ease to three points against relegation-threatened Aston Villa this weekend. At the time of writing, Jurgen Klopp’s have won 28 of their 31 Premier League fixtures and against the visiting Villains, they will take on the worst defensive team in the Premier League at Anfield on Sunday afternoon.

After their 0-1 loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers last weekend, Dean Smith’s side remain in the relegation zone and are winless in their last eight Premier League fixtures. They’ve suffered some heavy defeats over the course of the campaign too, losing by more than one goal on no fewer than eight occasions this term. As such, it’s no surprise that they’ve conceded 60 goals, more than any other team in the English top tier, and they could be in for a very difficult night against the rampant Reds.

Liverpool have racked up the victories this season and with the likes of Sadio Mané and Mo Salah in their side, it’s not hard to see why. They’ve won 14 of their league fixtures by a margin of more than one goal so far and given that they’re set to face one of the league’s poorest sides and the league’s most porous defence, we have to back the same again here as the Merseysiders look to chase down the Premier League record of 100 points in a season.

Southampton vs Man City Betting Tips

Southampton have the worst home record in the Premier League having picked up just 14 points from their 16 fixtures at St Mary’s Stadium this season. Ralph Hassenhüttl’s men are under no real threat of relegation, thanks mainly to a fine run of form across December and January and indeed they have returned to action with two away wins against Watford and Norwich City. However, those two victories came either side of yet another home defeat last week against Arsenal.

The visitors to Hampshire this time around are second-placed Manchester City. Writing before their Thursday night clash with a Liverpool side that only recently took their Premier League crown away from them, the Citizens may not have much to play for here and may not have been as consistently impressive this season, but they’re still one of the toughest teams to beat in the Premier League, having won 20 matches this term and scored 77 goals – more than any other team in the league.

What’s more, the Citizens are usually dominant when they do win. Of these 20 victories, 15 have been by a margin of more than one goal, a stat that should strike fear into the hearts of Southampton players and fans given that the Saints have already lost once by a nine goal margin at home this season and have lost by a margin of more than one goal a total of seven times. As such, we’re expecting a very competent display and a comfortable away win for Pep Guardiola’s side here.

Premier League FAQ’s

Who are Premier League favourites?

The Premier League title race does appear to be done and dusted ahead of the restart. Liverpool possess a huge 25 point gap on their nearest rivals Manchester City with the Citizens having just 10 games left to play, so the Reds could have the title sewn up by the time they’ve finished their first game back from the break against arch-rivals Everton.

What channel is the Premier League on?

The return of the Premier League is going to result in a feast of football for the viewers, with games being shown by a host of broadcasters including Sky Sports, BT Sport, Amazon Prime and BBC.

But perhaps the biggest news on this front for football fas is the news that there will be several free-to-air games in remainder of the campaign – something we’ve seen very little of in the Premier League before now.

Sky Sports have confirmed that the Merseyside Derby will be the first of the 25 live matches that they plan to broadcast for free among the 64 games they have scheduled – while the BBC will also broadcast four matches.

When will the Premier League return?

The Premier League is set to return on the 17th June with two postponed fixtures as Manchester City welcome Arsenal and Aston Villa take on Sheffield United. The rest of the teams will be back in action on the following weekend with matches like Everton vs Liverpool and Tottenham vs Manchester United the stand-out games.

How do you get promoted to the Premier League?

The top two teams are automatically promoted from the Championship, the second tier of the English football pyramid, into the Premier League. There’s then a play-off between the teams that finish between 3rd and 6th in that division to determine who takes the final promotion spot.

How is relegation settled in the Premier League?

Relegation is simple from the Premier League – finish in the bottom three positions in the table and you are relegated into the Championship. This season, with the title all but wrapped up, the fight to stay in the Premier League is particularly intriguing – the likes of Aston Villa, West Ham United, AFC Bournemouth and Watford are still very much in danger of going down this term.

When do we post our Premier League tips & predictions?

We aim to post our Premier League tips and predictions around 48 hours before kickoff, allowing punters time to weigh up their options. Time periods can change depending on fixture congestion.

For particularly eye-catching fixtures, there may be an array of different betting guides and pointers around the site, so keep your eyes peeled for a special Squawka slant on your betting content ahead of the biggest games on the calendar.

Despite winning the England Division One on more occasions than any other team prior to the rebrand to the, Liverpool have famously never won the top-flight domestic league since the change of name, with Blackburn, Leicester, Arsenal and Manchester City being the only other clubs to have one at least one Premier League Title.
