Premier League betting preview – Sunday 8th February

Can Jonathan Walters lift the Potters to their third successive Premier League win?

The Premier League weekend action continues into Sunday with three mouthwatering clashes and the Sky Sports cameras will be there to give us all the live coverage.

Two relegation threatened sides will be hopeful of victory in the first of three televised matches on Sunday when West Brom make the journey north to Turf Moor.

Tony Pulis has turned things around at the Hawthorns since his arrival, however he suffered his first defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur last weekend and will be eager for his side to bounce back from that defeat. Nevertheless, Burnley will have other ideas and will be looking to top scorer Danny Ings to work his magic at Turf Moor on Sunday lunchtime.

Either way, despite the home side starting as firm favourites, we expect a closely-fought encounter and as such, we’ll be backing a draw in this match with Danny Ings to score at any time.

The second match comes live from St James’ Park at 2pm. Newcastle United enjoyed an excellent 3-0 win over Hull City at the KC Stadium last weekend and they will be looking to build on this with a decent result against Stoke City. Nevertheless, the Potters are in fine form at the moment and will be eager to clinch their third successive win in the top flight.

Jonathan Walters celebrated his 200th appearance for Stoke with a hat-trick, thus piling further pressure on relegation-bound QPR. Walters will be certain to cause the home defence one or two problems on Tyneside this weekend and with that in mind, we’ll be backing a Stoke win on Tyneside this weekend with Walters on the scoresheet.

The third and final televised match sees Manchester United visit Upton Park for what promises to be a thriller. Both sides are displaying some excellent attacking football of late and we should witness a few goals from both teams in east London.

The Hammers will still be smarting from their 2-0 defeat at Anfield last weekend and will be desperate to bounce back to winning ways once again, however Manchester United are very much in the ascendancy and will prove too hot for the Hammers to handle.

Both teams will get onto the scoresheet, however the Red Devils will seal the points as they look to further consolidate their top four position in the Premier League.
