Premier League Acca Tips – 1st & 2nd April

Well, Wales last gasp equaliser in Croatia scuppered my chance of a win last week on my short-odds International accumulator, so it is back to the drawing board this week as we see the Premier League swing back into action.

It’s a crucial period too as we continue through the final third of the season, when the key matters of trophies being won, UEFA competition places being earned and relegation matters being decided.

This weekend sees us with two huge games that bracket the seven games taking place over the weekend (Spurs visit Everton on Monday night) kicking off with Manchester City facing Liverpool at the Etihad on Saturday lunchtime.

Then on Sunday afternoon, we head north to St James’ Park where Newcastle United will take on Manchester United with a win for the home team being enough to leapfrog them from 5th in the table, above Spurs and Manchester United, into third.

In between those two games there are a number of intriguing matches at both ends of the table with Arsenal taking on Leeds, Brighton hosting Brentford and two massive relegation six-pointers as Crystal Palace host Leicester City while West Ham face Southampton in the early game on Sunday.

While there are still enough games to go for things to change, the games this weekend could have a major impact on team’s chances of success in their relative battles going forward and I have picked the following four games for this long odds weekend EPL accumulator.

Bet Analysis: Saturday 1st April

Bournemouth v Fulham – Away Win

Both of these newly promoted teams have had very different seasons. Bournemouth are battling for survival at the foot of the Premier League table, while Fulham lie just outside the European qualification places in the top half after a great season under Marco Silva. Fulham’s acrimonious FA Cup quarterfinal defeat to Manchester United could see them without two players and perhaps their manager on the sideline here, but even so, I think that they have shown enough quality to get a result here against a team that does not have the best record at home. Fulham’s ability to counter attack here I think will be the key to them picking up a positive result.

Chelsea v Aston Villa – Home Win

Are there real signs that Graham Potter is starting to discover what his best and most effective Chelsea side is? The ex-Brighton man has had a tough time since taking over at Stamford Bridge, not helped by a massive influx of players in the transfer window. The net result of that was a team with no identity, but Potter has worked well with his team to turn their fortunes around. Villa’s improvement under Unai Emery has seen them move out of the relegation zone but this is going to be a tough game for them here against a Chelsea team who they don’t have a great record against. I can’t see this being a comfortable win for Chelsea, but I do think they’ll take the 3 points here.

Bet Analysis: Sunday 2nd April

West Ham United v Southampton – Away Win 

It is fair to say that these two teams have underperformed this season, West Ham particularly so, and this game is absolutely vital for both teams. A win for either could move them out of the drop zone and likely would do so and it would also create a bit of daylight between the winner and the loser. West Ham do not have the best home form, losing as many games as they have won and that will be a worry for home fans here against a Southampton side who are much better away from home than on the road. The Saints have a better away record than Liverpool and almost all their relegation opponents (only Leicester have amassed the same number of points on the road) and I have a sneaky feeling the Saints could repeat their away win over Everton with a similar performance here.

Newcastle United v Manchester United – Draw

These two teams are very much in contention for the Champions League places next season and Newcastle will know a rare win over Manchester United here would see them jump to third in the table above Spurs and their opponents today. The problem is that Manchester United will know that too and Erik Ten Hag will be wanting a much better display than they showed on their last away trip to Liverpool. The visitors have a fantastic recent record against Newcastle, losing just one of the last ten games and that was a good few years ago so it is going to take a huge effort for Newcastle to win here. I can’t quite see the home team managing that but I do feel they won’t lose the game, hence the draw is a good option to back here.
