The Daily Star’s Chief Football writer, Danny Fullbrook, gives his verdict on this weekend’s televised matches in the Premier League.Man United v Everton, Sat 23rd Apr, 12.45, Skysports 2
Game on then when it comes to the title. Well between Manchester United and Chelsea at least because Arsenal seem to want to do everything they can to throw it all away. Arsene Wenger talked about his side having mental strength this season, well that was not on display when they were throwing their two goal lead over spurs on Wednesday away.
And what about the four goal lead they squandered to Newcastle earlier in the season? Sir Alex Ferguson’s side have been brilliant at home and dreadful away in the Premier League so you just have to believe that despite drawing against Newcastle United in midweek, they will beat Everton at home, 1/2 with Betfred. David Moyes’ team (7/1, Boylesports) are always a tricky proposition for the champions-elect, but I take them to win 2-1, at 7/1 with Skybet, but I can’t take my eyes off an Everton away win at the same price, but perhaps a step too far.Chelsea v West Ham, Sat 23rd Apr, 17.30, ESPN
Chelsea are also at home, against West Ham United, and with the form they are in at the moment they should roll the Hammers over at just 1/4 (Coral). Three goals against Birmingham has set them up nicely on Wednesday so expect a few goals with 3-0 at 7/1 (Totesport), while Fernando Torres to score at any time is strangely short at 5/6 () which seems very low.Bolton v Arsenal, Sun 24th Apr, 16.00, Skysports 1
Arsenal hate playing against Bolton away, and they always have done so this will be another tough game for the Gunners. Admittedly it will be very difficult for Owen Coyle’s team to lift themselves for the game given their appalling 5-0 thrashing by Stoke City in the FA cup semi-final. But they will not roll over and will be desperate to get out on the pitch again so this will have to be a draw which is 14/5 with bet365 and in truth, at nearly 3/1 is a good straight forward bet which would provide a bit of easy money (hopefully).Blackburn v Man City, Mon 25th Apr, 20.00, Skysports 1
The last televised game of the weekend is Blackburn against Manchester City which has an away win written all over it (23/20, William Hill), although it might take City until the second half to make a breakthrough so draw first half with a City win at 90 minutes is 5.5 (9/2) with Betdaq, which I would take. Compare all Premier League odds and bet at the best prices.
