Premier League Tips – 1st & 2nd February

Never mind should we do away with replays in the FA Cup, when it comes to tipping, I feel like we should do away with the FA Cup completely! It is so hard to predict how a team that has barely played together all season and which features a mix of youngsters and fringe players will perform.

Suffice to say, last weeks set of tips wasn’t the best but at least we can put that competition behind us and head back to more certain ground in the Premier League this weekend in what is the final full set of games across the weekend for a couple of weeks, with the famous ‘winter break’ now coming into focus.

This means after this weekend we will have half the teams in the Premier League in action next weekend, with the other half the weekend after. Which should make for an interesting couple of weekends for tips.

It is worth remembering that I did land a couple of very nice acca wins just a couple of weeks ago and I am hoping to channel those positive energies from the tips (which came in the league) into this selection of four games from the weekend.

Here’s my tips for Saturday and Sunday’s games in the Premier League.

Bet Analysis: Saturday 1st February

Leicester City v Chelsea – Draw

The Foxes bounced back to winning ways in the Premier League last time out, putting West Ham to the sword 4-1, while Chelsea have lost form a little, picking up one win in their last four Premier League games. That would indicate that Leicester, who are eight points ahead of Chelsea in third, should be the pick here, but there are two things that bug me with this. Firstly, Chelsea have tended to play much better on the road than at home this season in many games, secondly, will Jamie Vardy be fully fit for Leicester? I am not so sure as even if reports he is fit are correct, he cannot be 100%. As such, I think Chelsea have a chance to come away from this one with a point.

Crystal Palace v Sheff Utd – Draw

These two sides are very similar in that they have excellent defensive records, the Blades conceding just 23 goals this season, Palace just 28, but their attacking record, notably for goals scored, does leave a lot to be desired. Sheff Utd have netted 25 goals this season, while Palace have just 22, only Watford have fewer than the Eagles. As such, this looks like being a very defensive game and while one goal could decide it either way (and if that was the case, I’d expect the visitors to land the win), I just feel that the draw is the most likely option, probably 0-0, or possibly by a 1-1 scoreline if the attackers have a blinder on the day.

Watford v Everton – Home Win

A quick look at the history of this game would appear to show it is madness backing a Watford win as they have won just 5 of the 29 games between the teams. That said, a quick look at the recent history shows that Watford have won this fixture in each of the last three seasons (a 3-2 win, followed by two 1-0 victories) and I have the feeling that Everton are not going to like the physical approach of Troy Deeney and co in the Watford attack. The Toffees are not yet playing as Ancelotti would like and this is a very tough game to pick up three points from, so I am backing Watford to land a narrow home win here to make it four years in a row they have enjoyed a home win over Everton.

Bet Analysis: Sunday 2nd February 2020

Tottenham v Manchester City – Away Win

With Christian Eriksen’s move to Inter Milan looking likely and Harry Kane ruled out through injury, Tottenham’s attacking threat has been very much blunted by the absence of these two players. In contrast, Manchester City have welcomed back a number of players from injury in recent times with Laporte returning in defence and Sane not far off a comeback too. City have been in decent form in the main of late, but they have slipped up from time to time as well, as they did in the 2-2 draw between the teams in August, a game City absolutely dominated but failed to win. I can’t see that happening here though as without their main man in attack, Spurs have struggled to find the net and I can see City putting them to the sword as a result.
