Premier League Preview

Betrescue’s Chief Sports Writer Chris Hutcheon takes his weekly look at all the major Premier League action in England.

Before last week’s frustrating FA Cup draw at Reading, Liverpool registered back-to-back league wins to force their way back into contention for a Champions League place’ something Reds boss Rafa Benitez has practically guaranteed.

The Spaniard has perhaps been a touch premature given the stiff competition his side face, namely from the likes of Manchester City (7/5, Betdaq) and Aston Villa (3/1, Paddy Power), but in to 7/4 with Betfred to finish in the top four, Liverpool can make further strides in that department on Sunday at Anfield, by beating another side involved in the intriguing battle, fourth-placed Tottenham.

An 15/8 chance at 888Sport to cling on to that position, Spurs currently lie four points above Benitez’s side, but the same firm make the Reds odds-on at 10/11 to cut that gap to one, with a victory this weekend.

Nevertheless, Harry Redknapp’s men, Paddy Power’s 7/2 outsiders, are much improved this season and will inevitably make life difficult for Liverpool. Consequently, William Hill’s 13/5 for a home win by a one-goal margin catches the eye then and in what could be an entertaining encounter featuring three or more goals (17/20, Jaxx.com), Ladbrokes’ 7/1 for a 2-1 Reds success could pocket punters a healthy profit.

Meanwhile, the Reds’ matchwinner at Aston Villa, Fernando Torres, is 7/2 (Victor Chandler) to also break the deadlock in this one.

Boosted by the return of Nicolas Anelka, who Stan James quote at 10/3 to open the scoring, league leaders Chelsea are a banker at 4/11 (Partybets) to scoop a maximum haul at Hull City. Carlo Ancelotti’s men needed a last-gasp Didier Drogba strike to edge past the Tigers at Stamford Bridge but a more comfortable triumph looks on the cards on this occasion, so the shrewd might consider bet365’s 21/20 for the Blues to prevail by at least two clear goals.

On the back of their embarrassing home defeat against Leeds, Manchester United must travel to in-form Birmingham who are sure to make life very uncomfortable for Sir Alex Ferguson’s charges. Victor Chandler’s 11/2 for a home win might prove popular then and the same can be said of the 14/5 posted by bet365, against the stalemate, however Paddy Power’s 8/13 favourites can bounce back at St Andrews to edge a tight affair, with Totesport’s 11/2 for them to grab the only goal, catering for those in agreement.

At the Emirates, Arsenal are 2/5 (888Sport) to complete a Premiership double over David Moyes’ Everton, having beaten the Toffees 6-1 on the season’s opening day and home wins are also likely at Craven Cottage, where Jaxx.com price Fulham at 3/5 to see off troubled Portsmouth and at Eastlands on Monday, when Manchester City (4/9, Betdaq) host Blackburn.

Elsewhere, Aston Villa are a generous 11/8 with bet365 to get the better of Wigan at the DW Stadium, Burnley and Stoke are 23/10 courtesy of Totesport to share the spoils at Turf Moor and despite Sunderland’s strong favouritism, a draw (12/5, Stan James) also appeals at the Stadium of Light as the Black Cats lock horns with Bolton.

In Sunday’s six-pointer at Upton Park meanwhile, Betfred’s 5/6 for West Ham to overcome Wolves is the best bet.
