New Year’s Day Acca Tip: 1st January 2020

No luck with our tips over the festive period, but we have seen some unusual resultsAcca Tips over that time. Few would have had Leicester beaten so easily by Liverpool at home, and similarly, Manchester City would not have been tipped by many to lose away to Wolves, the second time they have lost to the midlands outfit this season.

We are seeing some teams return to some semblance of form over the festive period with the likes of Everton, Manchester United and Watford all picking up excellent points over the run of games, while others have stuttered a little, while the likes of Aston Villa, Bournemouth and West Ham seem to have completely gone off the boil.

To kick off a new year, we have this set of tips for the games taking place on New Year’s Day across the Premier League. This is from a selection of nine games taking place at various times on New Year’s Day, all of which will be shown live on BT Sport, with the Liverpool v Sheffield United game kicking off in the evening a day later.

2019 was a mixed year, I didn’t pick as many wins as I’d hope to (who does?) but then again, there were so many close calls I feel I was a little unlucky and could have ended the year with a few more winners had the football gods been a little kinder.

Let’s hope we can start off this year positively with this set of tips

Burnley v Aston Villa – Home Win

Burnley’s somewhat inconsistent season continues as they followed two defeats,with two wins and then another two losses in their latest games over the festive period. Aston Villa though have been struggling away from home over the last few months and in truth, I think Dean Smith’s team are in a real spot of bother. I don’t think that they have the quality in attack that they need to score enough goals, especially on the road, and while they are decent defensively, they have started to ship more goals of late. I can’t see this one being a goal-fest at Turf Moor, but I do feel Burnley will do just enough to claim the win.

Southampton v Tottenham – Away Win

Southampton have seen a big improvement in form over their last three games, picking up seven points, while Spurs have managed just four and they were held 2-2 in their last away game against bottom club Norwich. That isn’t the kind of form that Tottenham were wanting under Jose Mourinho but the one thing that Mourinho is, is adaptable. Southampton, despite better form, are still conceding too many goals and I feel that could be their achilles heel here. This should be an entertaining game and I can see goals being scored at both ends and while I was tempted by the draw in this one, I just feel Spurs have enough firepower to claim the win.

Watford v Wolves – Draw

Outside of Liverpool, Wolves have been defeated the fewest times in the Premier League this season and they face a Watford side who have picked up seven of the last nine points available under Nigel Pearson. This is also a re-run of last year’s FA Cup Semi Final, dramatically won by Watford late on. Wolves avenged that defeat in the final weeks of the EPL season last year and I think the midlands side will claim something here. A few weeks back, I’d have been confident of a Wolves win in this one but Watford are looking so much more organised now and as such, I think their good form will continue with them picking up a point here.

Arsenal v Manchester United – Draw

Two former giants of the Premier League have fallen on harder times of late but there are signs that Manchester United are at least returning to fodm. Two wins over the festive period has moved United up to fifth in the table, hot on the heels of Chelsea, while Arsenal have faced a tough couple of games, away to Bournemouth before home games with Chelsea and Man Utd to kick off Mikel Arteta’s time at the club. I am not really convinced Arteta is the man to turn this Arsenal team around quickly and as such, I don’t see the Gunners getting too much of a bounce here. United’s away form is very poor but there are signs it is improving, but even so I think the most likely result here is a draw.
