Premier League Tips: Maximum points for Wolves and Man United?
The football action is coming thick and fast for the Premier League’s big guns. Following a weekend of FA Cup drama, the focus is back on top-flight action tonight.
We’ve got a full preview of Manchester City’s trip to Tyneside here. But that’s just one of six Prem games on the agenda. Check out our top tips on the other clashes below…
Manchester United v Burnley
The Clarets have left Old Trafford with a point on each of their last two visits. So despite a difficult recent run, they could make it tough for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
However, after eight wins on the trot – including victories at the Emirates and Wembley – the hosts should prove too strong over 90 minutes. A United win is 2/7, while we go 6/1 that it finishes 2-0 to the Red Devils.
Jesse Lingard grabbed a brace in the pair’s 2-2 draw last season, and netted an ice-cool clincher at Arsenal on Friday night. He’s 15/8 Anytime.
If Burnley notch, it could come from 3/1 shot Ashley Barnes, who loves a goal on the road.
Fulham v Brighton & Hove Albion
These sides played out a cracking 2-2 draw in the September sunshine at the Amex. And the signs again point to goals galore, as the Seagulls head to West London.
In the Match Betting, Fulham are slight favourites at 27/20, with both the Draw and a Brighton win up for grabs at 21/10.
Loved by Seagulls fans, and a proverbial pain-in-the-bum for opposition defenders, Glenn Murray grabbed a brace in the reverse fixture. He’s 8/5 Anytime, while we go 17/5 for another Score Draw between the clubs.
Wolverhampton Wanderers v West Ham United
Manuel Pellegrini’s head-in-hands moment on Saturday summed up the Irons’ away-day woes of late. Their third successive away loss (all by two or more goals) came to League One strugglers AFC Wimbledon, shipping four in a 4-2 defeat.
That will cause plenty of concern ahead of the visit to a Wolves side who’ve already seen off Liverpool, Chelsea and Spurs this term. The boys from the Black Country are 21/20 for another win, while 29/10 says they rub it in with the -1 handicap.
Diogo Jota has broken the deadlock in two of Wolves’ last five games, and is 4/1 to repeat the feat. Meanwhile, a 3-1 home win is priced up at 12/1.
Arsenal v Cardiff City
In the words of Katy Perry, Gunners fans will want to forget ‘Last Friday Night’, where a 3-1 loss to Man United was capped off by an Alexis Sanchez goal.
But Unai Emery’s men have the ideal chance to bounce back, against a Bluebirds side who’ve managed just six goals and five points from their 11 away games.
A Gunners victory is on offer at 1/5, but with skinny odds on a simple three points, there could be more interest in Arsenal to Win Both Halves at 11/8.
Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang has netted five in his last eight games. He’s 4/6 to notch against Neil Warnock’s men, while it’s 2/1 the Gabonese goal-getter grabs another brace.
