Weekend EPL Acca – Matchday 3 – 20th & 21st August

No luck last week with my tips for the weekend, but that is the way it works with acca betting every so often. I’m back this week with another set of tips and with my fingers crossed for a better outcome.

I’m not overly concerned though as the season is young and we are still getting to grips with how teams are shaping up. Not many people would have put United at the foot of the table and Liverpool on just 2 points after 2 games, so it does tend to take a bit of time for teams to find their rhythm.

And that goes for me and my tips too I reckon!

This weekend we have nine games taking place on Saturday and Sunday with the big game between Manchester United and Liverpool taking place on Monday night, with both those teams in dire need of a win after less than impressive starts to the season, especially for United.

As is standard, I’ve gone through the schedule and come up with four games that I think offer us a good chance of predicting the results and I’ve put them together into an accumulator as outlined below.

Let’s take a closer look at this week’s selections.

Bet Analysis: Saturday 20th August

Crystal Palace v Aston Villa – Draw

I don’t really know what to make of either of these teams quite yet. Palace did draw at Anfield, but that was more down to Liverpool’s inability to finish and create chances, than any great display. Even against 10 men, Palace didn’t control the game and that does concern me a little going into this game with an Aston Villa side who got a desperately needed win last weekend to ease the pressure on boss Steven Gerrard. The ex-England skipper has found life tough at the club in recent times, with his stance on Tyrone Mings drawing plenty of criticism. That said, I do like the ambition at Villa and I do feel the signings he has made has improved their squad a great deal and will eventually come good. I can’t quite see them doing enough to land the win here though, so I am backing a draw and a very close game.

Leicester City v Southampton – Home Win

The Foxes have started the season slowly once again and with their central defender Wesley Fofana a target for Chelsea, there is a bit of pressure on them to start to get things right. Brendan Rodgers’ team underperformed last season and they cannot start this season too slowly or they could be out of the reckoning before they know it. Southampton showed real grit to come back from a 2-0 deficit against Leeds to claim a point last week, but I am still of the opinion they are going to struggle and I am backing the Foxes to get their season off to a belated start with a solid victory here.

Bet Analysis: Sunday 21st August

West Ham v Brighton- Home Win

The Hammers along with Everton and Manchester United are pointless after two games of the season although how they did not pick up at least a point away to Nottingham Forest last weekend is a mystery. The woodwork, poor finishing, missed penalties and the like combined to hand the Hammers a 1-0 defeat and they now badly need a result at home to an in-form Brighton team that have not lost in their last seven and who have picked up an excellent four points from their opening two games. I am a huge fan of what Graeme Potter is achieving with the Seagulls, but I think the Hammers need for a win here is going to be the key factor and despite this being another close game, I am backing West Ham to pick up a vital three points.

Newcastle Utd v Man City – Away Win

Along with Arsenal, Manchester City have made a very solid start to the new season and have the maximum points from their two games to sit at the top of the table. I expect they will still be there after their trip to Newcastle too. The home side do have plenty of money to spend, but finding the players to bring in while staying within financial fair play guidelines has proven tough for Eddie Howe and as such, Newcastle have probably not been as active in the market as many would have expected. City have been busy though and Haaland is already settling in nicely and after a solid win last weekend, I am expecting City to have more than enough quality to pick up the win here to make it a maximum 9 points from 9.
