Weekend Acca Tip: 11th & 12th January

It was a tough old weekend for predicting results last time out, but that is what the FAAcca Tips Cup gives you, especially when you have so many teams in the Premier League and Championship playing weaker than expected sides. It does kind of become something of a lottery when that happens.

So I am glad to be back on more familiar ground this weekend with the return of the Premier League for at least a couple of weeks before we start on the fourth round of FA Cup ties once again at the end of the month.

I think I am going to simplify things a little this year. I have been going perhaps for too many longer odds selections, rather than being satisfied with smaller more regular returns. Those bigger odds selections are great when they win, you only need one or two a season to guaranteed a big profit, but they can be difficult to hit.

So at least for the first few weeks of 2020, I am going to rein things in a little and go for more, what many people would call, safer selections, although they will still offer a decent return for your stake money should they land a winner.

Here’s my tips for this weekend’s action in the Premier League which features a number of key games including Liverpool’s clash away to Tottenham and Arsenal’s latest London derby adventure against a Crystal Palace side that held them to a 2-2 draw at the Emirates earlier in the season.

Bet Analysis: Saturday 11th January 2020

Crystal Palace v Arsenal – Draw

These two teams battled out a 2-2 draw at the Emirates Stadium back in October and in truth, a draw is the most likely outcome for the two teams in this game too. Palace don’t score too many goals, but they are facing an Arsenal back line that has been very weak of late and who concede far too many goals. Palace’s defence is relatively robust but this Arsenal team is capable of scoring against anybody. I can’t quite see Arsenal having enough to win this game, they have too many deficiencies in defence, but likewise I just feel Palace lack the firepower for the win, so a draw looks the best option.

Everton v Brighton – Home Win

Everton were rightly slated by many for their lacklustre display at Anfield in the FA Cup last weekend. Carlo Ancelotti’s men could not find a way through in the first half against a hugely under-strength and young Liverpool side, and were made to pay in the second half when the home side nabbed a winner. Brighton’s performance was not much better as they lost at home to Sheffield Wednesday and in truth it has been a bit of a run of poor results for Brighton over the last few weeks with just one win in their last five. Everton need a reaction from that Anfield loss and their fans will expect a big performance here and with Ancelotti at the helm, I think they will get it and I am backing Everton to win this one very comfortably.

Tottenham v Liverpool – Away Win

The last three games between these teams in the Premier League have all finished 2-1 with the only game sandwiched in between those wins being Liverpool’s 2-0 win in the Champions League final last June. Spurs will sorely miss the injured Harry Kane, but Liverpool also have a lengthy injury list with the likes of Matip, Fabinho, Milner and Lovren all out. Even so, I expect the Reds to field a very strong side here and they are in such a great run of form that even Jose Mourinho may struggle to keep them quiet. I can see both teams scoring, but I can only see Liverpool winning again.

Bet Analysis: Sunday 12th January 2020

Bournemouth v Watford – Away Win

These two teams have endured something of contrasting fortunes in recent times with Bournemouth on a poor run of form that has seen them drop into the relegation zone, while Watford have picked up ten points from the last 12 available to move off the bottom of the table and just one win away from safety. It is fair to say that Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth have been hit very hard by injuries of late and that has certainly played a prominent part in their lack of form. That said, most teams have had injuries and some have dealt with it better, Watford being a case in point. Nigel Pearson has come in and made a big impact in a very short space of time at the club and the way they are playing, that second half against Tranmere aside last week, I can see them picking up the points from this trip south.
