Premier League Acca Tip – Saturday 25th August

Last weekend’s accumulator didn’t quite hit the mark with a couple of my selections duly Accumulator Tipdelivering on the money, but then a couple didn’t. On reflection I think I credited Wolves with a bit too much quality against a wily old Premier League campaigner like Leicester City so I’ll be aiming to learn from that.

Still, that is the way it goes with accumulator bets. If I hit them every weekend, then I’d be writing these tips from the deck of my third yacht as I cruised around the Caribbean.

That said, it promises to be a solid week of action this weekend starting on Saturday when we have six games to select from, four of which I have earmarked for my accumulator as they are decent bets, plus have some decent odds.

I haven’t backed Liverpool to beat Brighton at home because the odds were so poor, plus whenever I back Jurgen Klopp’s team, they have a tendency to let me down. I’d still back them this season of course, but only when the bookies are offering something like value in their odds.

Here’s my tips for this weekend’s first football acca.

Bet Analysis: Saturday 25th August

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Manchester City – Away Win

Historically, games between these two teams have tended to produce plenty of goals (though the Carabao Cup tie between them last season ended 0-0 after extra time, with City winning on penalties). City have began the season like Champions and sit atop of the fledgling table on goal difference as one of six teams with maximum points. Wolves have a single point from their 2-2 draw with Everton and I do feel that Nuno Espirito Santo’s team can get a goal here against City. The problem I have is that if Everton, with ten men, can get two goals against Wolves, I think City could get three or even four goals and as such, I cannot see the home team being able to match the visitors here. City should win this one relatively comfortably.

Arsenal v West Ham United – Home Win

It is strange to think that after four games between them, neither of these sides has a point in the Premier League. It’s not the most auspicious start to the season for either of the two new managers at each club either but I think Arsenal do have mitigating circumstances having been handed a nightmare start of Man City at home followed by Chelsea away. The Hammers too have played Liverpool, but were poor at home to Bournemouth giving away two sloppy goals to lose a game they had been winning. Arsenal showed plenty of quality going forward against Chelsea and I think West Ham will pay the price here. Don’t be too surprised if Arsenal win this game by a very comfortable margin.

Huddersfield Town v Cardiff City – Home Win

Everyone is down on Huddersfield after their less than stellar start but after games against Chelsea and Manchester City, most people had them down as having 0 points and poor goal difference. Cardiff had an easier start but have failed to shine in either of their games, only getting a point at home to Newcastle thanks to Neil Etheridge’s last gasp penalty save from Kenedy. It is worth remembering Huddersfield Town did beat Lyon and Red Bull Salzburg in pre-season and they are not as bad a team as the table suggests and I think they’ll get the job done against a Cardiff City side that I don’t think are as technically sound and who had shocking away form the last time they were in the Premier League.

Southampton v Leicester City – Draw

Leicester acquitted themselves well at Old Trafford in a 2-1 defeat and then produced a fine display to beat Wolves 2-0 at home, but with Jamie Vardy suspended their attack will be a little toothless against Mark Hughes Southampton. The Saints haven’t enjoyed a good start with just one point from two games although they did improve in the second half away at Everton last week. The problem I have with Southampton is I just don’t see where the goals they need are going to come from and that is not an issue I have with Leicester, although they are blunted in attack somewhat with Vardy’s absence. Had Vardy played, I’d have backed Leicester to win here, but as he will be suspended, I think a draw is the sensible choice.
