Premier League Matchday 16 Acca – 9th and 10th December

We are starting to get into the festive period for fixtures now. Next week sees the final set of games in the Group Stages of the European competitions take place (and we’ll have our usual acca for the Champions League and Europa League to come).

But before that, we have our third set of Premier League games of the past eight days with a full complement of games taking place across Saturday and Sunday this weekend.

And there are some cracking fixtures to enjoy too. There’s a massive game at Selhurst Park where Crystal Palace will take on Liverpool with the Reds hoping to, temporarily at least, go top of the table ahead of Arsenal’s game against Aston Villa, which is the 5.30 televised game and which should be a cracker.

There’s a big game at Wolves as Forest boss Steve Cooper fights to hang on to his job after four straight defeats for his team, while at Old Trafford, Manchester United take on Bournemouth.

Sunday then sees some huge games as Everton face Chelsea knowing a win could take them out of the drop zone. That depends on how Luton do against a Manchester City side who were beaten by Aston Villa in the week and who have now not won a Premier League game in their last four.

We also have Fulham facing West Ham and the late game should be a cracker as Tottenham host Newcastle with both teams attempting to close in on those top four places.

Let’s now take a look at my four picks for this week.

EPL Bet Analysis: Saturday 9th December

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Nottingham Forest – Home Win

These two teams haven’t met that often in recent times, though they do share a long history of midlands rivalry, including a League Cup Final win for Wolves over Forest back in 1980, which was Wolves last major trophy. The home side come into this game in so-so form with a win in midweek over Burnley giving them a vital three points. Steve Cooper though is under the cosh at Nottingham Forest with unconfirmed reports that he must get something from this game in order to save his job at the City Ground after four successive defeats, the last one being a 5-0 thrashing at Fulham. Wolves away is never an easy place to go and get a result, just ask Manchester City, so I am confident that the home side will get the win against a Forest side lacking confidence.

Manchester United v Bournemouth- Home Win

For all the talk of a disastrous season for Manchester United, the Red Devils have won four of their last five Premier League games and that included a 2-1 win over Chelsea in midweek. They are at home again to a Bournemouth side who have finally started to pick up points under Javier Iraola and who have now jumped from the relegation zone up to 15th on the back of 10 points being collected from their last four games. It will be hard for them to continue that run at Old Trafford on Saturday against a United side who despite not playing particularly well, still have so much quality that they can win the game in an instant and that may well be the case here.

Aston Villa v Arsenal – Draw

Can Arsenal do something that no team has managed to do this season and take something back with them from a game at Villa Park? Villa have won every home game in the Premier League and defeated Manchester City 1-0 in midweek to move up to third place in the table, just four points behind Arsenal and two off Liverpool in second. Unai Emery has done a fantastic job with the team and he will be itching to get one over the team who sacked him when he took over from Arsene Wenger a few years ago. Arsenal though will know anything less than three points could be costly, and could see them concede top spot (depending on how Liverpool do at Crystal Palace) so I expect a cagey game here and one that I feel is most likely to end in a draw.

EPL Bet Analysis: Sunday 10th December

Everton v Chelsea – Home Win

It may not look like it, given they still occupy 18th in the Premier League table due to their 10-point deduction, but Sean Dyche is doing a fantastic job at Everton. The Toffees have won three of their last five games, only losing to Manchester United and if they had not been penalised, they would lie 14th in the table, two points behind Chelsea. The Londoners lost to Manchester United in midweek and their record against Everton in recent years is not that good, especially on Merseyside and with that in mind I am confident that Everton, backed by their fearsome home support, will get that big win they need and that win could take them back out of the drop zone.
