Chelsea Premier League Betting Tips

Premier League Betting TipsMark Rawlinson

The pick of the matches this weekend is the Saturday lunchtime kick-off between title rivals Chelsea and Arsenal, but there are plenty more key ties taking place across both Saturday and Sunday.

Chelsea v Arsenal Betting Tips

It’s a landmark day for Wenger, as he takes charge of his 1000th game as Arsenal manager and no doubt, he’ll want to cap the day off by securing the three points, which would see the smack bang in the title race once again.

But Chelsea are certainly no pushovers at home, winning their last four at the Bridge and are unbeaten on home soil since 18th September.

The Blues have had the upper-hand in meetings between the two sides in recent times and are unbeaten in five against the Gunners, winning three of those games. The last meeting was in December, where the spoils were shared with a goalless draw.

Jose Mourinho has no fresh injury concerns, with Ashley Cole and Marco van Ginkel the only absentees. Tomas Rosicky faces a late fitness test to play following an ankle injury but hamstring injuries keep Mesut Ozil and Rio Miyachi out.

Chelsea are priced as 11/10 favourites with William Hill, whilst Bet 365 offer the best odds on an Arsenal victory at 15/4.

The game is live on BT Sport 1 from 12:45pm.

West Ham v Manchester United Betting Tips

Manchester United made it through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League in midweek with a 3-0 win over Olympiakos but will that win set them up for a strong end to the season?

Well, they’re back in league action in the Saturday tea-time game against a West Ham side in search of their first league win for a month. After going five games unbeaten and climbing into mid-table, the Hammers have lost back-to-back games against Everton and Stoke.

United haven’t had the best of times on their travels of late, with only two win in their last seven on the road, and last time they played at Upton Park in April 2013, they could only manage a 2-2 draw.

Sam Allerdyce has no fresh injury worries but David Moyes will be without Nani but Robin van Persie, fresh from his hat-trick on Wednesday, and Jonny evans are both expected to have recovered from knocks.

United are 37/40 favourites with Bet Victor but there’s value on a West Ham win at 7/2 with William Hill.

Catch this match live on Sky Sports 1 from 5:30pm.

Tottenham v Southampton Betting Tips

Tottenham were dumped out of the Europa League on Thursday as they were defeated by Benfica but their quest to be involved in Europe again next year continues on Sunday as they face Southampton.

Despite being in the post less than three months, recent media reports suggest Tim Sherwood’s position at White Hart Lane is already in doubt, after picking up just two wins in their last eight in all competitions.

Sherwood’s job hasn’t been made easy with a hefty injury list and Vlad Chiriches and Michael Dawson won’t be available for this game. Emmanuel Adebayor, Paulinho, Younes Kaboul and Moussa Dembele all face late fitness tests.

A good run to the end of the season could see Southampton join the race for a Europa League spot, and they’re looking for their third straight league win, following recent victories over Crystal Palace and Norwich.

Guly do Prado, Morgan Schneiderlin and Dejan Lovren all face late fitness tests but Jack Cork and Victor Wanyama remain sidelined for the visitors.

Spurs have won the last five ties between the two sides and I think they’ll secure the win on Sunday. Paddy Power price them as 5/4 favourites, with 3/1 offered by Bet Victor on a Southampton win.

BET OF THE DAY: The last four times these sides have met, Spurs have always won the game by a single goal, and SkyBet offer decent odds of 3/1 on a Tottenham win by one goal.

This game is live from 1:30pm on Sunday on Sky Sports 1.
