EPL Weekend Acca – 22nd & 23rd January

No luck for me last week as my acca was down to just three selections due to one game being postponed, but only Wolves produced the goods, with Everton going down to a defeat as did West Ham, in what I felt were two surprising results.

Everton boss Rafa Benitez paid the price for that loss when he was sacked on Monday and Duncan Ferguson has now taken over as caretaker manager once again to steady the ship. Last time he did that, it resulted in an improvement in form for Everton, who face Aston Villa at Goodison on Saturday lunchtime.

We saw some surprising wins in midweek, none moreso than Spurs victory over Leicester which came after they were 2-1 down in the 94th minute of the game, but a double from Steven Bergwijn on 95 and 97 minutes handed Spurs an unlikely three points.

That game makes Sunday’s clash between Chelsea and Tottenham a crucial one for both teams. A win for Chelsea keeps Spurs, even with their games in hand, at arms length, a win for Spurs and if they win their games in hand, they can move six points clear of their London rivals.

There’s nine games across the weekend, with Watford facing Norwich in a relegation battle on Friday night, and there are some very interesting games to pick the bones of for my selections this week, and this is what I have come up with.

Bet Analysis: Saturday 22nd January

Brentford v Wolves – Away Win

Brentford have had a few tough games of late and in midweek, they were given a harsh lesson in the importance of taking chances as despite making plenty of opportunities against Manchester United, they scored just one goal, while United claimed three from their fewer opportunities. I can see a similar thing happening here against a Wolves side that is in excellent form of late and could well be a dark horse for a top six finish if they can score a few more goals. I am backing the Midland side to earn a win here to keep them hot on the heels of the top six.

Manchester United v West Ham – Home Win

After winning 3-1 at Brentford in midweek, Manchester United will be hoping that they can back that up with another three points at home to West Ham on Saturday. David Moyes team beat United in the Carabao Cup earlier this season, but were beaten by United at home earlier on in the campaign and after losing to Leeds last weekend, the Hammers have been looking a little rocky in central defence. With Ronaldo on the prowl and United back amongst the goals in midweek, I think that the odds look good for them to land a win here too.

Bet Analysis: Sunday 23rd January

Leicester City v Brighton – Draw

I can’t quite fathom how Leicester City managed to pluck defeat from the jaws of victory against Spurs in midweek and that loss will have hurt them a great deal. The night before, Brighton earned another great draw, this time against Chelsea and the Seagulls have lost fewer games than any Premier League side outside the top three. That suggests another tough afternoon is in store for the home side here but with their firepower, I can see Leicester scoring a goal, but the problem is I can also see them conceding. With Brighton hard to beat, but not winning many games, I think another draw is on the cards here.

Chelsea v Tottenham – Draw

Given that Chelsea have drawn five, lost one and won one of their last seven Premier League games, it is not surprising that they have fallen off the pace at the top of the table being set by Manchester City, but that form and an improvement in Spurs own fortunes means that Spurs could be on Chelsea’s heels, or even ahead of them if they win their games in hand. That makes this game a very important one for both sides but in truth, it is a game that despite Chelsea winning their Carabao Cup semi final just last week, I think both teams will probably cancel each other out. Having played each other so often so recently, I think a draw is most certainly on the cards here.
