Premier League midweek betting preview

2 December 2014

Fancy a flutter on the midweek top-flight action?

Burnley v Newcastle United

A rejuvenated Burnley side host an in-form Newcastle United at Turf Moor on Tuesday evening looking to build upon their current unbeaten run.

Danny Ings salvaged a point from the penalty spot in a 1-1 draw at home to Aston Villa on Saturday, which maintained Sean Dyche's side unbeaten run in recent weeks.

A win for the Clarets could take them out of the relegation zone, should results go their way, meanwhile a win for Newcastle could see them move back up to fourth.

The Magpies on the other hand will be looking to get back to winning ways following Saturday's 1-0 defeat away at West Ham United.

Prior to defeat in East London, the Toon had won four games in a row, a set of results which saw them leap to fourth in the table a few weeks ago.

Burnley to win – 7/4
Draw – 23/10
Newcastle to win – 6/4

Leicester v Liverpool

Leicester City welcome Liverpool to the King Power on Tuesday eager to end their recent barren run.

The Foxes are without a win in six games, with pressure mounting on Nigel Pearson following Saturday's 3-2 defeat away at QPR, a result which leaves them bottom of the top-flight.

Recently-promoted Leicester will look to former Cod Army forward Jamie Vardy to deliver the goods against an out-of form Liverpool.

Brendan Rodgers takes his Liverpool side into the game off the back of a win over Stoke, and will be hoping the win over the Potters can kick-start their stuttering season.

Despite their struggles, the Reds are tipped to see off the Foxes on Tuesday, and a win could potentially see Rodgers' side move up to seventh.

Leicester to win - 14/5
Draw – 13/5
Liverpool to win – 10/11      

Manchester United v Stoke City

Manchester United face Stoke at Old Trafford looking to continue their impressive revival of late.

The Red Devils have won their last three Premier League fixtures, which has seen them move to fourth in the top tier.

A 3-0 win over Hull City was a welcome boost around Old Trafford on Saturday, however United will have to do without Angel Di Maria and Luke Shaw, both of whom are out injured.

The Potters currently occupy 12th place in the Premier League, and have endured a mixed season to-date, with their last match ending in a narrow defeat away to Liverpool.

Steve Sidwell faces six weeks out with knee ligament damage, meanwhile Phil Bardsley and Victor Moses are both out injured.

Manchester United to win - 4/9
Draw – 100/30
Stoke to win – 13/2

Swansea v QPR

Swansea City welcome Queens Park Rangers to the Liberty Stadium on Tuesday evening.

The South Wales outfit have enjoyed an impressive start to their season, and sit eighth in the top-flight following Saturday's 1-1 draw at home to Crystal Palace.

Wilfried Bony netted the opener, with Mile Jedinak equalising from the spot for Palace.

Jefferson Montero is the only injury concern for Garry Monk, with the Swans having a full squad to choose from.

Meanwhile QPR go into the game high of confidence following a 3-2 win over Leicester, courtesy of Charlie Austin's late winner.

The win at Loftus Road saw Harry Redknapp's side rise to 18th position, with the R's keen to push on in their first season following promotion from the Championship.

Bobby Zamora and Richard Dunne are both expected to return to the fold.

Swansea to win - 3/4
Draw – 13/5
QPR to win – 7/2  

Crystal Palace v Aston Villa

Aston Villa make the trip to South London to face Crystal Palace looking to improve on their current league position.

Both sides are level on 13 points going into the game at Selhurst Park, win a win for either likely to ease relegation fears in both camps.

Damien Delaney and Adrian Mariappa are set to miss the game for Palace through injury.

Christian Benteke returns after suspension for Villa, meanwhile defender Ciaran Clark is also expected to be fit for Paul Lambert's side.

Palace will be keen to add to their fine home form this season, with Neil Warnock's side beating Liverpool 3-1 in their previous match at Selhurst Park.

Palace to win : 21/20
Draw - 23/10
Villa to win – 13/5

West Brom vs West Ham

Tuesday's final previewed game will see West Brom host West Ham at the Hawthorns.

Both sides have had contrasting starts to the current season, with Albion languishing in 15th, while the Hammers currently sit pretty in fifth.

The Baggies slipped to a third straight defeat as Danny Welbeck helped Arsenal to a 1-0 win at the weekend.

Manager Alan Irvine will check up on the fitness of Sebastien Pocognoli going into the game, meanwhile James Morrison is also likely to miss the game.

Aaron Creswell grabbed the winner for the Hammers at Upton Park on Saturday as his goal saw off the challenge of Newcastle United.

Winston Reid is set to return for the Hammers, though Mark Noble is likely to be absent from the game in the West Midlands.

West Brom to win - 7/5 draw
Draw – 23/10
West Ham to win – 23/10

Arsenal v Southampton

Arsenal host Southampton on Wednesday evening at the Emirates knowing a win could potentially take them into the top four, should results go their way.

The Gunners beat West Brom 1-0 at the Hawthorns on Saturday, and are priced as favourites  against an in-form Southampton side.

Kieran Gibbs and Nacho Monreal are both doubtful for the visit of Ronald Koeman's Saints side.

The visiting Southampton side will be hoping to get back to winning ways in North London after a 3-0 defeat to Manchester City on Sunday.

Midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin is the only Saints player ruled out  having picked up an injury in that defeat to City.

Arsenal to win - 4/5
Draw – 11/4
Southampton to win – 16/5

Chelsea v Tottenham

Chelsea host Tottenham Hotspur in a London derby on Wednesday evening, knowing a win can further enhance their lead at the top.

The Blues remain unbeaten this season, following Saturday's 0-0 draw away at Sunderland, while Tottenham beat Everton 2-1 on Sunday in a televised game.

Jose Mourinho has no fresh injury news heading into the game at Stamford Bridge.

Meanwhile, Danny Rose, Kyle Walker and Andros Townsend lead a long list of injured players in the Spurs ranks.

Chelsea to win - 1/3
Draw – 15/4
Tottenham to win – 17/2

Everton v Hull City

Everton welcome Hull City to Goodison Park looking to improve on a stuttering start to their season.

The Toffees sit in tenth position in the top-flight following Sunday's defeat at Tottenham Hotspur.

James McCarthy leads the injury list for the Goodison Park outfit, therefore Ross Barkley and Gareth Barry are likely to partner each other in the midfield role.

Steve Bruce's visiting side have 11 points from 13 games, with Hull sitting in a precarious 17th position in the table.

Hull currently have only one injury concern,  Robert Snodgrass is out with a long term injury.

Everton to win - 8/15
Draw – 3/1
Hull to win – 5/1

Sunderland v Manchester City

Manchester City head to the North East to play Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

The hosts will gain heart from a spirited goalless draw at home to Chelsea, however manager Gus Poyet will be without three players for the visit of the title holders.

Heading into Wednesday's game, the Blackcats are currently on a four match unbeaten run, while Pellegrini’s men will be looking to close the gap on Chelsea.

City have the likes of Vincent Kompany, David Silva and Edin Dzeko all missing for the trip.
