EPL And Carabao Cup Final Acca – 25th & 26th February

Once again this week we hit 3 out of 4 tips, in the Europa League this time, which is increasingly frustrating!

Surprisingly, it was AS Monaco, who had just beaten Bayer Leverkusen on the road, who let us down at home against the Germans and in truth of the four games I selected for that set of games, that was the one I was most confident about.

Anyway, we have to suck it up and instead look ahead to this weekend’s games which includes seven Premier League games taking place on Saturday and Sunday (plus Fulham v Wolves on Friday Night) and also the Carabao Cup Final on Sunday from Wembley where Newcastle United will take on Manchester United for the first silverware of the new season.

In the Premier League we have some intriguing games including Arsenal facing a tough trip to Leicester City, Liverpool seeking to bounce back from their 5-2 home mauling by Real Madrid away to Crystal Palace, while on Sunday Tottenham will be trying to improve their dismal recent record against Chelsea as they host their London rivals in the early game ahead of the final.

We also have a relegation six-pointer on Saturday as Leeds host Southampton with both teams struggling in the bottom two places in the Premier League but both with new managers in charge, at least until the end of the season.

So with plenty to look forward to, here are our tips for this weekend’s games.

Bet Analysis: Saturday 25th February

Everton v Aston Villa – Draw

Aston Villa have a pretty good recent record against Everton but they are facing a team that, under Sean Dyche, have won both their last two home games by a 1-0 scoreline. Those wins have moved Everton out of the drop zone and they will be very keen to keep that run going here against a Villa side that shipped four against Arsenal last weekend. However, I just feel at the moment, Villa do line up well, man-for-man against Everton and I have the sneaky feeling that this is going to be a game where Villa perhaps grab the first goal and force Everton to battle hard to get an equaliser and I can’t see the Toffee’s being able to secure more than a point here.

Leeds United v Southampton – Draw

The bottom two in the Premier League meet on Saturday in what now looks like an absolutely crucial game for the pair of them. Leeds will be wary of Southampton who have beaten the likes of Everton and Chelsea on the road in recent times. Leeds home form is generally good, they held Manchester United at home a couple of weeks back, but they are a team that does allow the opposition chances. With two new managers at both these clubs, there is also that new style of play and potentially a new formation to factor in, which makes this all the more tougher. I think both teams will view this game as one they cannot lose and when that happens, I feel a draw is always the best bet.

Bet Analysis: Sunday 26th February

Tottenham v Chelsea – Home Win

Tottenham’s record against Chelsea over the last few years is nothing short of dreadful, with their one win in that time coming on penalties in the League Cup. However, the home side come into this game having drawn at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season and knowing that this Chelsea team is very much out of sorts since Graham Potter took over as manager and since the owner sanctioned a big money spending spree during January. The sheer turnover of players makes Potter’s task all the more difficult and I think that is partly why they are struggling at the moment. Spurs form hasn’t been that great, especially away from home, but at home they have picked up useful wins and I think that is what they will do here.

Bet Analysis: Carabao Cup Final

Newcastle United v Manchester United – Man Utd Win

The Carabao Cup Final should be an intriguing game between two sides that have drawn their last two encounters, but over a slightly longer period of time has seen Manchester United the dominant force. In recent weeks, the Red Devils have also been the better of the two in terms of form and their win in midweek against Barcelona will have given them huge confidence ahead of this final. Newcastle have done well to reach the final but I think with Eddie Howe, that is not enough. He is expecting his team to win silverware for the new owners and in truth, I’d love them to do that on Sunday. However my gut feeling here is that Manchester United will just be that little bit too strong and will clinch the narrow win here.
