Weekend Acca Tip – Sat 18th & Sun 19th July

Last weekend was a bit of a middle of the road effort. Two of our tips came in pretty much bang on the money as we expected, but once again late goals were the killer in the other games and I have lost track of the number of times I have said that this season.

Over the course of the season, things should even themselves out in terms of late goals, some will go against you and some will go for you but at the moment, any one that goes in seems to be ruining my chances of landing an accumulator. And I wouldn’t mind but some of these goals are going in during the 95th or 96th minutes of games.

Still, it is what it is and I suppose going through frustrating times like this will make landing a winner all the more sweeter and that is what I am hoping will occur this weekend with this selection of bets featuring matches from the Premier League and also both FA Cup Semifinal ties at Wembley this weekend.

As a result of these games there is a much shorter Premier League round of fixtures, so we have used a couple of games from those matches to supplement the big FA Cup ties. I really do like the look of the selections this week and I think this is my best chance for some time of landing a winner this weekend.

Here’s my tips for Saturday and Sunday’s games.

Bet Analysis: Saturday 18th July

Norwich City v Burnley – Away Win

I thought Norwich didn’t put up too bad a display away to Chelsea in midweek, but they still lost the game and given that they are on a long run of losing games, I cannot see their luck changing any against a Burnley side that are in fine form and who managed to take a point from their last away game at Anfield, the only side to do that this season so far.  Sean Dyche’s men have been looking so strong of late and had they found this form a little earlier in the season then European football could have been a possibility. Even so, I still expect this Burnley side, full of fight and resolve and no little quality, to have more than enough to get the win against a Norwich side that is really lacking confidence.

Arsenal v Manchester City – Man City Win

The first of the FA Cup semifinals takes place on Saturday night and sees Arsenal taking on Manchester City at Wembley. The Gunners have lost eight of the last 11 against Manchester City, including all of the last seven and they were well beaten by City by a 3-0 scoreline in both home and away games this season in the Premier League. I am trying to make a case for Arsenal and their one hope is that pacy, powerful attack which could cause City plenty of problems. However they haven’t managed to do so in any of the last seven games and in truth, I can’t see them doing so here. I think this will end up being another easy win for an in-form Manchester City side.

Bet Analysis: Sunday 19th July

Bournemouth v Southampton – Away Win

Hands up if you had Bournemouth to beat Leicester 4-1 last weekend? No I thought not. Eddie Howe must pull his hair out at times with this team. Sometimes they look superb, other times they look suicidally bad. In contrast, I think Ralph Hassenhutl has this Southampton team flying at the moment and after beating Man City and then holding Man Utd to a draw at Old Trafford, I don’t think a South Coast derby game is going to faze them particularly. I really like the way Southampton are playing at the moment, they look a much better side than earlier this season and I do fancy them to land a strong win here to put Bournemouth on the brink of relegation.

Manchester United v Chelsea – Man United Win

The final game of the weekend is the second FA Cup semifinal and it sees Manchester United face off against a Chelsea side that they have already beaten three times this season, twice in the league and once in the quarterfinals of the League Cup. Chelsea will be desperate to put that right but their recent record against Manchester United is very poor and the current form of both teams only tends to add weight to a United victory here. I do feel this will be a much closer game than the first semi final and I can see Chelsea pushing United hard, but I still feel United’s attack will do just enough for them to clinch a final spot.
