Manchester United Premier League Betting Tips

Premier League Betting TipsMark Rawlinson

There’s just five games taking place in the Premier League this weekend, all on Saturday afternoon as the FA Cup Quarter-Finals take centre stage on Sunday.

West Brom v Manchester United Betting Tips

The early kick-off on Saturday sees relegation scrappers West Brom looking to cause another upset over Manchester United, a side who are in desperate need of a win to keep their European hopes alive.

The Baggies sit a point and place above the drop zone and are looking for their first win since 1st January after going seven games without one, leaving boss Pape Mel under pressure.

The Spaniard’s job is further complicated with the loss of Nicolas Anelka who starts his five match ban whilst Billy Jones is injured.

Midfielders Chris Brunt and James Morrison are both doubts after picking up knocks whilst on international duty during the week.

David Moyes is another man with a real weight on his shoulders as his United side bid to win back-to-back league games for the first time since 28th January.

Robin van Persie will be available after overcoming illness but Javier Hernandez is unavailable due to a knee injury, whilst Phil Jones, Jonny Evans and Nani are all doubts.

This fixture last season was a real thriller, ending 5-5, but Moyes will hope his side can get the job done in quieter fashion. The visitors are 17/20 favourites with Bet 365 whilst West Brom are priced at 11/4 by Betfred.

Catch this match live on BT Sport 1 from 12:45pm.

Cardiff City v Fulham Betting Tips

There’s a real relegation six pointer in South Wales at 3pm as second bottom Cardiff City host rock-bottom Fulham.

A win is vital if either of these teams are to pull out the great escape but the biggest issue for Cardiff of last has been a lack of fire power, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side firing blanks in their last four games.

That said, they were only narrowly beaten 1-0 by Tottenham last time out, and Solskjaer may choose to use the 3-5-2 formation he did that match.

The hosts have no new injury concerns but Fulham are struggling for bodies, with Damien Duff, Scott Parker and Fernando Amorebieta all ruled out, whilst William Kvist and Kostas Mitroglou both doubts.

Since his appointment at Craven Cottage, Felix Magath has been unable to turn around the fortunes of the Londoners who have netted just two points from their last eight league games.

They are priced at 23/10 with Bet 365, but there is decent value in a Cardiff win with William Hill pricing them at 11/8.

Chelsea v Tottenham Betting Tips

There’s another important match at the other end of the table at tea-time as current league leaders face fellow London side Tottenham at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea’s league form is nothing less than excellent, with them heading into this one unbeaten in 13; a win today would put them seven points clear of the inactive Liverpool this weekend.

Eden Hazard is available for Jose Mourinho despite picking up a knock in midweek for Belgium but David Luiz could miss out with a groin problem alongside Ashley Cole who is definitely out with a knee problem.

A faltering Spurs side have only won three of their last six league games, causing them to lose ground on the race for the Champions League.

Christian Eriksen could miss out with an ongoing back injury whilst Kyle Walker, Younes Kaboul and Zeki Fryers remain doubts for Tim Sherwood.

I can’t see past a Chelsea win here, and Ladbrokes provide the best value at 8/13, whilst Spurs are best priced at 6/1 with Bet 365.

BET OF THE DAY – Chelsea to win to nil at 17/10 with Bet Victor.

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