Arsenal vs Liverpool

The first Premier League match since the international break displays two English goalscorers face each other (Danny Welbeck and Raheem Sterling). It has also increased in drama after reports of proposed swoop from Manager of the Month winner Arsene Wenger for Raheem Sterling. Lose this one and it`s probably the end of Liverpool`s hunt for a Champions League place. Liverpool face an Arsenal side that are not only impressive form- having won their last six Premier League matches- but have a habit of performing their best during the last 2 months. If they keep winning they could easily make second. Liverpool`s 2015 unbeaten run came to crashing end last week with defeat against Man Utd and to make matters worse they are without their captain through suspension, however Liverpool and Arsenal commonly draw in these matches–including recently the 2-2 in January 2013 and 2-2 draw in December 2014 – and with a strong mentality and good reaction to defeat from Liverpool this seasonm it`s unlikely that the Reds were undergo a losing streak. Our accumulator betting tip predicts a tight draw with both teams showing some performing a mix of attacking and defensive play. 1-1

Everton vs Southampton

Everton may have stopped the Premier League rot with two wins against bottom half sides Newcastle and QPR but their efforts might be like squashing water as they destined to finish below tenth place. They face a Southampton side who`s form has produced seven points in their last three games and given Ronald Koeman a Manager of the Month nomination and the dark horses will keep on fighting until it`s mathematically impossible to get a European place. Especially as they have winnable fixtures against Hull, Stoke and Sunderland arriving on the horizon. Southampton comfortably beat Everton 3-0 in the return fixture but with the adrenalin running through Ross Barkley`s veins after a confident-building international campaign, an accumulator betting tip is to expect a tighter affair this time. 1-2

Leicester City vs West Ham United

West Ham are not the force they were earlier in the season and despite winning their first Premier League match in the last eight, it was unconvincing and they needed a Sakho to score their latest goal of the campaign to win all three points. West Ham are playing in a mini-league with Stoke and Swansea and face a Leicester City side who have nothing to lose and could take advantage of the Hammers fragility and tragic away form- no away wins in Premier League in 2015. Leicester remain seven points from the bottom but are often considered to be the unluckiest team because of their unrepresentative points tally after great performances such as their thrilling 4-3 match with Tottenham two weeks ago. They have got decent draws with Hull and Everton recently but our accumulator betting tip is to expect Leicester to finally get three points for their efforts. 1-0

Manchester Utd vs Aston Villa

This is turning out to be a good season Louis Van Gaal with his side still in with a possible chance to being title contenders with four wins in a row, what`s also good news is that their disappointing signing Radamel Falcao might grow in confidence after his record-breaking performance for Columbia. Man Utd have to face the top two Man City and Chelsea in their next two fixtures, so the Red Devils have some fate in their own hands and will want to use their home fixture against Aston Villa as a warm up for the main events. Aston Villa`s three match winning streak in all competitions came to a bitter end at home against Swansea a fortnight ago and despite Tim Sherwood giving Villa new offensive belief, they face a Utd team that have kept clean sheets in 3 out of their last 4 premier league matches. Our accumulator bet is to expect this to be a comfortable afternoon for the team in fourth place. 4-0

Swansea City vs Hull City

Hull showed great fighting spirit against Chelsea in a game nobody thought they`d win but now they come up against the type of team they could fancy beating if they are to remain in the Premier League. The pressure occasionally gets them in more opportunist situations as Hull draw too much and lost the chance to beat struggling teams Leicester and Sunderland with 0-0 and 1-1 scorelines respectively. Swansea are ten points behind Tottenham but will want to cement their place in 8th place and they tend to beat teams in the bottom half of the table including their recent victory of Aston Villa. Our accumulator bet expects the accumulator betting tip expects the Swans to complete the double, especially as Hull are beginning to build a winless run. 2-1

West Brom vs QPR

Chris Ramsey still has belief in his players even if their captain Joey Barton has his doubts but the fixture list hasn`t been kind to them with matches against Chelsea, Liverpool and West Ham coming up. However they will have good momentum if they win against QPR and Aston Villa in the sequential fixture but they will need to get out of the five-match losing streak. Part of their problem is leaking goals as exemplified by the unwanted statistic of the worst defensive record of 54 goals conceded. They have only kept one clean sheet all year and that was in the one solitary away win against Sunderland. In contrast they play a topsy-turvy West Brom side who have kept 5 clean sheets in their last 8 matches in all competitions, and done enough to give them a 8 point cushion away from the drop zone. Our accumulator betting tip is to expect QPR to show fighting spirit but ultimately walk away without the points in the bag. 1-0

Chelsea vs Stoke City

Jose Mourinho`s men have been top of the league for the majority of the season and have that special ingredient that knows how to win even if they face nervous and self-destructive moments like they did against Hull. Most importantly they have still only lost two matches in the Premier League season but have had to endure frustrating home draws with Southampton and Burnley of late. They face a Stoke City who still wish for their highest Premier League finish but are starting to run out of steam lately with defeats to West Brom and Crystal Palace. Chelsea`s crunch time will be the double header against Chelsea and Man United but won`t find Stoke to be too difficult opposition in Saturday`s evening fixture. Our accumulator bet is to expect the same result as their previous meeting in December which finished 2-0 to the team in blue. 2-0

Burnley vs Tottenham

Harry Kane`s exhilarating performance for England will only do wonders for a club who will be anxious about the future of their stadium plans. Tottenham`s realistic target in the short term is to finish in the Europa League position even if they face a difficult challenge from Liverpool and Southampton. Winning against the inferior teams helps as in the case of the victories over Leicester, QPR and Swansea lately but in the month of March they conceded a whopping 11 goals which could incidentally affect their campaign. They face a Burnley side that have the biggest call for optimism out of the bottom three after their recent win over Man City and encouraging performances. Our accumulator bet still expects Tottenham to banish another bottom half opponent but not without leaking a few goals in the process. 2-3

Sunderland vs Newcastle United

Despite black clouds forming around The Stadium Of Light in recent weeks, a match against their arch-rivals always brings a ray of sunshine and lifts their spirits. Their mood will be buoyed by the gloating statistic that the Black Cats are unbeaten against Newcastle in six matches including winning their last four over the Magpies. Newcastle`s three defeats in a row and 1 win in seven statistic suggests that the fact there isn`t much to play for is swimming around their minds. Their 2 goals in the last 5 matches is also a cause for concern and poor preparations of a match of this caliber. After the narrow defeat to West Ham, our betting tip expects this to be the match to kick start not only praise for Dick Adovcaat but their survival winning run. 1-0

Man City vs Crystal Palace

Liverpool`s 3-3 draw with Crystal Palace at the tail end of last season effectively handed Man City the Premier League crown on a silver platter. The irony is that a similar fate could lie install for the Sky Blues in Monday night`s evening fixture but it is City who give it away. Man City’s defeats to Burnley and Liverpool in recent weeks have not only shown how breakable they can be but also allowed Arsenal to threaten their second place consolation. In contrast Crystal Palace`s form has given them their highest points total since 1992 and given them an optimistic upward-looking vibe that`s complimented by financial profits. Man City beat them 3-0 in the opposite fixture in December but our accumulator bet expects an unhelpful score draw for Pellegrini`s men, who undertake a Manchester Derby in the subsequent weekend.
