We’re revving up for a Premier League weekend packed with exciting fixtures
Another full programme of Premier League fixtures and it kicks off at Carrow Road where Romelu Lukaku will look to continue scoring.
Saturday 12th December
Norwich v Everton 12:45
Everton haven’t been able to get over the line against Bournemouth or Palace, although they could have the beating of a Norwich team who could struggle to tame the in-form Romelu Lukaku. It will be interesting to see how the Canaries counteract Gerard Deulofeu from the right-wing.
CORRECT SCORE: Norwich 1 Everton 3
BEST BET: Everton to win @ 8/5 with Coral
Crystal Palace v Southampton 15:00
The Eagles were finding life frustrating at Selhurst Park until a 5-1 win over Newcastle, although there is a slight over-reliance on Yannick Bolasie. The Saints are struggling to live up to last year’s campaign and they might come off worse here.
CORRECT SCORE: Palace 2 Southampton 1
BEST BET: Palace win and both teams score @ 9/2 with bet365
Man City v Swansea 15:00
Swansea are searching for a Garry Monk replacement and it could be messy at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday. Manchester City might be missing key players but they will be buoyant after a 4-2 win over Borussia Monchengladbach in the week.
CORRECT SCORE: Man City 4 Swansea 0
BEST BET: Man City HT FT @ 17/20 with Ladbrokes
Sunderland v Watford 15:00
We’re expecting things to be tight at the Stadium of Light. Both teams know how to defend and Sam Allardyce will be aware of how dangerous Troy Deeney and Odion Ighalo have been this season.
CORRECT SCORE: Sunderland 0 Watford 0
BEST BET: Under 2.5 Goals @ 4/6 with bet365
West Ham v Stoke 15:00
One has to fancy the Potters for this clash. West Ham have a raft of injuries and come up against a Stoke team reaching a new level thanks to exciting players like Xherdan Shaqiri and Marko Arnautovic.
CORRECT SCORE: West Ham 0 Stoke City 2
BEST BET: Stoke to win @ 2/1 with bet365
Bournemouth v Man Utd 17:30
United are down in the dumps after a Champions League exit, with Bournemouth looking to capitalise and the Cherries are confident after a 1-0 win at Stamford Bridge. But can they break down the Red Devils defence?
CORRECT SCORE: Bournemouth 0 Manchester United 0
BEST BET: No Goalscorer @ 17/2 with William Hill
Sunday 13th December
Aston Villa v Arsenal 13:30
Can the Villans win on Sunday? The answer is no, with Mesut Ozil, Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud likely to help Arsenal to a comfortable victory which keeps their title tilt on track.
CORRECT SCORE: Aston Villa 0 Arsenal 2
BEST BET: Arsenal win to nil @ 13/8 with Sky Bet
Liverpool v West Brom 16:00
Hmm, Liverpool don’t look too backable against a Baggies side who are pretty good at being party poopers. West Brom should be capable of at least holding the Reds until half-time.
CORRECT SCORE: Liverpool 1 West Brom 0
BEST BET: Draw at half-time @ 13/10 with bet365
Tottenham v Newcastle 16:00
It’s hard to see beyond a Spurs win. They dismantled West Ham in their last Premier League game at the Lane and Newcastle are liable to fall apart when they go a goal down.
CORRECT SCORE: Tottenham 3 Newcastle 0
BEST BET: Tottenham win to nil @ 7/5 with BetVictor
Monday 14th December
Leicester v Chelsea 20:00
At some stage, Chelsea might come good although this match looks a dicey affair for them. Leicester couldn’t be more confident and they should be able to land a positive result thanks to the form of Mahrez and Vardy.
CORRECT SCORE: Leicester 1 Chelsea 1
BEST BET: Draw @ 5/2 with bet365
