Premier League Weekend Acca – 5th & 6th March

Last week was very, very frustrating to say the least. All I needed was for Manchester United to beat Watford at Old Trafford to land a win of well over £200 for a £10 stake, which would have ensured a big profit on the year, regardless of how I do over the rest of the season.

All three of my other selections came in, even the longer odds ones and the game I’d picked as my ‘certainty’ just didn’t pan out for me. It was especially disappointing when I saw some of the chances that United squandered in the game.

So yet again, it is another near miss this year and I am hoping that I can go one better this weekend and land all four games and pick up the acca win which would guarantee me a profit on the season.

There’s a fair few interesting matches taking place over the course of the weekend including Chelsea facing a tricky game away to Burnley, Newcastle will hope to continue their good form at home to Brighton while there’s a massive relegation battle at Carrow Road as Norwich face Brentford.

At the very top of the table, Liverpool face West Ham, one of just two teams to beat them this season, at Anfield in the late Saturday evening game, while on Sunday the two giants from Manchester clash as City take on United at the Etihad.

Then on Monday, the final game of the weekend sees Tottenham face Everton.

Let’s take a look at the tips I’ve put together for this weekend.

Bet Analysis: Saturday 5th March

Aston Villa v Southampton – Draw

Four places and five points separate 9th placed Southampton from 13th placed Aston Villa in the Premier League, but they have very similar records in terms of goals scored (Southampton have one more 34, to Villa’s 33) and goals conceded (both 37).  One big difference is in the amount of games drawn, with Southampton picking up 11 draws to Villa’s three so far this season and in truth it is that ability to grab a point in close games that probably sees the Saints ahead of Villa here. Given the form of both sides, especially Southampton who are in the middle of a good unbeaten run, I think this will be a closely fought battle and a 0-0 or 1-1 draw is probably the most likely outcome here.

Newcastle United v Brighton – Home Win

For a long time, it looked like Newcastle United may well go down next season, but while the likes of Norwich and Watford have found themselves at the bottom of the table again in recent weeks, Newcastle have done superbly well, winning four of their last five games to move up to 14th place; above Everton, Leeds and Brentford outside the drop zone. Eddie Howe will know that the job is not done however and a win at home here against a Brighton side not in the best of form would be another big three points on their road to safety. They can’t move up a place this weekend, but a win would put Newcastle right in touch with the teams going up to 11th and would go a long way towards ensuring survival so this will be a closely fought home win for me.

Norwich City v Brentford – Home Win

Norwich City spent a brief time outside of the relegation zone a little while back but recent results have seen them drop back to the bottom of the table and this home game against Brentford is now a must win one for the Canaries. Brentford have not won any of their last nine games and they are struggling. Norwich though are also struggling having lost their last three games and also with just 15 goals scored, that is 7 fewer than any other team in the EPL. However the Canaries did win at Brentford for their first win of the season and I feel they have a good chance of picking up another win here at the weekend.

Bet Analysis: Sunday 6th March

Watford v Arsenal – Away Win

Roy Hodgson’s Watford scuppered my acca last week with a point away to Manchester United which was a superb result for them. I hope they don’t do the same again against an Arsenal side that are starting to look like very genuine prospects for a top four finish this season. The Gunners have won their last three Premier League games and have three games in hand on the teams above them and are just 2 points behind Manchester United in fourth (who face Man City this weekend). As such, this is a huge game for Arsenal and one if they can win with United facing City and West Ham at Liverpool, could put them in pole position for the fourth spot in the Premier League.
