There are some fantastic Premier League encounters on the weekend horizon and we have tips for all the televised clashes starting with Saturday lunchtime.
Stoke City v Manchester City, Saturday 12.45pm
Man City at 7/10 to win this game? Perhaps not, with Manuel Pellegrini’s team not particularly convincing on the road. They have been held to goalless draws at Old Trafford and Villa Park, while Spurs dished out a 4-1 beating to them.
Stoke haven’t been great at the Britannia Stadium but they did recently beat Chelsea and tend to raise their game against the big boys. In Bojan and Xherdan Shaqiri, they have players to cause some damage of their own.
BETTING TIP: Draw @ 5/2 with Paddy Power
Chelsea v Bournemouth, Saturday 5.30pm
Jose Mourinho is expecting a big December for the Blues and they should have the beating of a team who are experiencing rotten luck with injuries. Diego Costa is likely to be welcomed back and Eden Hazard is showing signs he can return to the form of previous campaigns.
BETTING TIP: Chelsea win to nil @ 6/4 with Sky Bet
Newcastle United v Liverpool, Sunday 4pm
Liverpool are in the groove under Jurgen Klopp and they should have the beating of a Newcastle team who have recently been trounced by Leicester and Crystal Palace. The Magpies seem to be rudderless and their opponents should take full advantage here.
BETTING TIP: Liverpool HT FT @ 8/5 with BetVictor
Everton v Crystal Palace, Monday 8pm
Coral offer 11/10 about Everton winning this game although Palace aren’t to be opposed on the road, having won four of their six road trips and the two defeats were by slender 1-0 scorelines at Leicester and Tottenham.
The Toffees might therefore be tamed by an Eagles side who can counter quickly on the break and could enjoy yet another victory away from home.
