2023/2024 EPL Week 14 Preview

It’s go time for the Premier League clubs as we enter the frantic festive period where seasons can be made or broken in the space of a month.

Between December 2 and January 2 (UK time), 18 clubs are scheduled to play seven league fixtures, while Manchester City and Brentford have six due to City’s participation in the Club World Cup in Saudi Arabia.

Add in the European competitions, the League cup and everything else and December is a proper fill up for fans of the world game.

There is a lot to look forward to as it all kicks off this weekend with a number of huge fixtures on the cards including Tottenham’s trip to the Etihad to face the reigning champions.

We’ve got our Premier League previews and best bets below so read on and see who we are backing in Matchweek 14.

Arsenal vs Wolves
Sunday 3 December, 2:00am, Emirates Stadium
Arsenal 2 – Wolves 1

For the first time since April 27, Arsenal will enter a Premier League matchweek on top of the table and they will be eager to hold on to that position for as long as possible.

It was not pretty against Brentford last weekend, but the Gunners did enough to win and I’m expecting them to try and grind out another win here.

However they are likely to need at least two goals and probably more given Wolves recent success in front of goal, with the formerly profligate side scoring in their last 14 matches in all competitions.

Both teams to score has been a successful play in the visitor’s last 12 and while Arsenal does have the Premier League’s best defence, I’m expecting Wolves to register at least one goal in defeat.

Arsenal to Win and Both Teams to Score @ $3.00

Brentford vs Luton
Sunday 3 December, 2:00am, Gtech Community Stadium
Brentford 3 – Luton 1

If you are just looking at the recent results, you might think Luton are a value bet in this one considering the Bees have lost back to back matches.

However Brentford went down to two of the top three teams in the league either side of the international break and prior to that, they were looking pretty good beating bottom and mid-table teams like Burnley, Chelsea and West Ham.

I like Brentford but the price on them is a bit too short, so I’ll have a bet on the overs market considering the Bees have scored three goals on their own in home wins over the Clarets and the Irons.

Both teams to score has also hit in four of Luton’s last five fixtures so that’s all the information I need to jump on the over at this price.

Over 2.5 Goals @ $1.70

Burnley vs Sheffield United
Sunday 3 December, 2:00am, Turf Moor
Burnley 5 – Sheffield 0

There are plenty of matches to get excited about this weekend, this is not one of them.

It is also one of the few times you might have to reconsider the “back against Burnley at all costs” rule that normally applies when the Clarets play.

Burnley won the Championship fixture at Turf Moor between these clubs last season and that is potentially the only reason why they are favoured here.

Neither team can defend all that well with Sheffield conceding 34 goals so far, the highest number in the Premier League while Burnley is a close second with 32.

When two bad teams play you can either back the home team or the over and in this case, consindering their respective struggles at the back, I’ll take the over and hope for a couple of decent goals.

Over 2.5 Goals @ $1.91

Nottingham Forest vs Everton
Sunday 3 December, 4:30am, The City Ground
Nottingham Forest 0 – Everton 1

Points deduction aside, Everton have not been that bad lately and actually look like good value against Forest.

Last week’s loss against Manchester United might have been a tough result to take but this has the makings of a bounce back game.

Weirdly enough for Forest, they have lost their last two games by a score of 3-2 and have scored two goals in four of their last five fixtures.

As long as the Toffees get on the front foot early they look like they will be able to control this game and I like their chances of picking up a big three points on the road.

Everton to Win @ $2.65

Newcastle vs Manchester United
Sunday 3 December, 7:00am, St James’ Park
Newcastle 1 – Manchester United 0

United looked good in their win over Everton but is one performance enough to convince people they will be able to defeat a rampant Newcastle United?

After their controversial draw in Paris during the week you get the feeling the Magpies will be coming out with a point to prove, especially on the back of a dominant win against Chelsea last weekend.

Man United having 24 hours less rest is going to be a factor in the respective preparations for this game too and it is another factor in favour of the visitors.

Newcastle to Win @ $1.95

Bournemouth vs Aston Villa
Monday 4 December, 1:00am, Vitality Stadium
Bournemouth 2 – Aston Villa 2

There is every chance this market is going to swing further in favour of Aston Villa as we get closer to kickoff because their price looks very generous considering the chasm between the two clubs.

Perhaps the bookies think this could be a trap game for Villa on the back of a morale boosting win at Spurs last week and their midweek Conference League fixture.

But even so, Bournemouth only has one marquee win this season and that came against an out of sorts Newcastle team before the international break.

While Villa is capable of throwing up a bad game every so often, it’s not something I’ll be expecting to happen in a situation like this.

Aston Villa to Win @ $1.95

Chelsea vs Brighton And Hove Albion
Monday 4 December, 1:00am, Stamford Bridge
Chelsea 3 – Brighton 2

There are still plenty of questions surrounding Brighton and their true capacity this season but they at least got things back on track with a win away to Forest last weekend.

Even that win came about the hard way with the Seagulls needing to play out the final 20 minutes with ten men and they will be without Lewis Dunk for this fixture because of his red card.

But their attack came to life, scoring three goals and they will be lighting up like a Christmas tree at the prospect of facing this Chelsea defence.

The Blues have conceded four goals in each of their last two matches and even though Brighton’s attack is not quite at that level, they should still be able to cause plenty of headaches.

Let’s go big with this tip, I like Brighton to cause an upset at the Bridge because frankly, Chelsea are still very much a middling team and the visitors might still have a bit of fight about them.

Brighton to Win and Both Teams to Score @ $6.50

Liverpool vs Fulham
Monday 4 December, 1:00am, Anfield
Liverpool 4 – Fulham 3

This one does not need to be anymore complicated than necessary, Liverpool are going to win here, it’s just a question of by how much.

The market is not giving Fulham a whole lot of hope and justifiably so, the Cottagers have ben pretty poor lately and needed a lot of good fortune to get by Wolves in their last outing.

In their last two home Premier League matches, Liverpool has scored three goals and I am expecting them to put a few past Fulham in this game.

Liverpool to Score 3+ Goals @ $1.87

West Ham vs Crystal Palace
Monday 4 December, 1:00am, London Stadium
West Ham 1 – Crystal Palace 1

It is very hard to make a case for Crystal Palace in this match, they have lost four of their last five and looked pretty average in doing so.

At best you can say that West Ham will be a bit flat following their Europa League match in Serbia but that might just act as a bit of an equaliser between the two teams.

Even so, with that match coming against a team anchored to the foot of that group, the Irons might not need to go all out in that one.

This is a pretty straightforward choice then with West Ham looking like exceptional value.

West Ham to Win @ $2.00

Manchester City vs Tottenham
Monday 4 December, 3:30am, Etihad Stadium
Manchester City 3 – Tottenham 3

Ange Postecoglou will face no more daunting task in his maiden Premier League campaign than taking Spurs to the Etihad to face the reigning champions.

It does not help that his overachieving team have undergone a bit of a course correction and have lost their last three matches, all in frustrating fashion.

While his commitment to playing his way is admirable, there really is only one outcome for this match and it involves City taking full advantage of that high line and ending their two-match domestic draw streak with a win.

Postecoglou’s commitment to attacking football should see Spurs get at least one goal, perhaps the first but City’s class and talent should see them win out on the day.

SGM: Manchester City to Win, Both Teams to Score, Erling Haaland Anytime Goalscorer @ $3.33


Just three weeks remain in the Premier League season before the longest midseason international window.

In case you were wondering what the fixture crunch has been like for England’s elite, last season Matchweek 14 was played midweek from December 1-3 (AEDT) while this season it will be wrapped up before the calendar shifts to November.

Add in European commitments for some and it makes for a very busy run over the next few weeks.

Read on for our previews and best bets for every Premier League fixture over the next few weeks.

Leicester vs Manchester City
Saturday 29 October, 10:30pm, King Power Stadium
Leicester 0 – Manchester City 1

If this one took place a couple of weeks earlier, most would have been desperate to take Manchester City to win this one by four or five goals.

However a pair of convincing wins over lowly Leeds and Wolves, Leicester is starting to show signs of life as they look to start the great escape.

In more concerning news for City is the fact Erling Haaland was substituted at halftime of the Champions League fixture with Borussia Dortmund during the week, leaving his status for this match in question.

Even if he cannot go, City still has a damn good squad at their disposal and should be able to take care of business against this Leicester team.

Back Manchester City to Win and Over 3.5 Goals @ $2.45

Bournemouth vs Tottenham
Sunday 30 October, 1:00am, Vitality Stadium
Bournemouth 2 – Tottenham 3

Spurs thought they were through in the Champions League before a dramatic late intervention from VAR sent that group to the final day.

Antonio Conte will have to put that frustration behind him and refocus for this fixture as they try to end a two match Premier League losing run.

Bournemouth has also dropped its last two and Spurs should see this as an opportunity to course correct and get a much needed three points.

Back Tottenham to Win @ $1.70

Brentford vs Wolves
Sunday 30 October, 1:00am, Brentford Community Stadium
Brentford 1 – Wolves 1

There’s a remarkable piece of symmetry between these two clubs with both coming off 4-0 defeats in their last outings.

Brentford fell to Aston Villa while Wolves were demolished by Leicester as their lacklustre attack once again drew a blank.

We’re not going to see all that many goals in this one and the under looks like the way to go despite the defensive struggles on both sides.

Back Under 2.5 Goals @ $1.88

Brighton And Hove Albion vs Chelsea
Sunday 30 October, 1:00am, Amex Stadium
Brighton 4 – Chelsea 1

Graham Potter will return to familiar surrounds this weekend however it may not be a pleasant reunion as he will be in the visitor’s dugout having left the Seagulls for Chelsea in September.

Neither side has exactly flourished since Potter’s move with Brighton picking up two of a possible 15 points while the Blues have won just once in their last three league fixtures.

Admittedly Potter is yet to lose with Chelsea but his record has been inflated by Champions League victories.

Either way, this market should not be anywhere near as close as it is at the moment and I’ll happily take on the struggling Brighton outfit.

Back Chelsea to Win @ $2.45

Crystal Palace vs Southampton
Sunday 30 October, 1:00am, Selhurst Park
Crystal Palace 1 – Southampton 0

If it is possible to have a statement draw then Southampton taking a point off a lacklustre Arsenal is just that.

That was their third match without defeat and made it five points in that time, while Palace had their own three match unbeaten run come to an end at the hands of Everton.

Southampton’s away record is not overly encouraging this season with two wins and four defeats having been held scoreless in their last three away defeats.

Palace should be able to find a way to take advantage of Southampton’s road woes and pick up all three points here, even if the price is a bit short.

Back Crystal Palace to Win @ $1.91

Newcastle vs Aston Villa
Sunday 30 October, 1:00am, St James’ Park
Newcastle 4 – Aston Villa 0

A huge 2-1 win over Tottenham in Newcastle’s last outing made it seven fixtures without defeat and four wins from their last five.

The longer this run goes on, the more seriously you have to take the Magpies top four credentials and they will start as clear favourites to extend that streak this weekend.

As for Aston Villa, the Unai Emery era will begin with a pretty tough assignment with the Spaniard taking over for the embattled Steven Gerrard.

Emery is an expert in maximising the talent at his disposal as shown by his record with Villareal but this looks like a step too far for there.

Back Newcastle to Win @ $1.80

Fulham vs Everton
Sunday 30 October, 3:30am, Craven Cottage
Fulham 0 – Everton 0

Fulham’s start to the season has been quite impressive with 18 points to date, good enough for a top half spot ahead of Liverpool.

Everton arrested a three match losing run but there is a real concern that it might have been a false dawn so it might be worth holding fire on jumping on the Toffees’ bandwagon.

If you have been impressed by Fulham however, there is some excellent value on the Cottagers at home and that’s the direction I’ll be heading.

Back Fulham to Win @ $2.30

Liverpool vs Leeds
Sunday 30 October, 5:45am, Anfield
Liverpool 1 – Leeds 2

Let’s not sugarcoat it, Liverpool was absolutely embarrassed in their last Premier League outing losing to Nottingham Forest, bringing whatever goodwill was surrounding Anfield to a screeching halt.

The good news is they will return to friendly confines this weekend when they take on a struggling Leeds side.

Jesse Marsch is starting to face some real scrutiny over his job security thanks to a four game losing streak and the club’s last win coming in the Carabao Cup in late August.

What helped Liverpool was a convincing Champions League win away to Ajax during the week for their third clean sheet in four matches.

Back Liverpool to Win @ $2.65

Arsenal vs Nottingham Forest
Monday 31 October, 1:00am, Emirates Stadium
Arsenal 5 – Nottingham Forest 0

It was the stumble everyone knew was coming eventually, but now people have to work out whether or not Arsenal’s draw with Southampton was a blip on the radar or a sign of things to come.

Having knocked off Liverpool last weekend, Forest will be buzzing and if the Gunners don’t show up, they could suffer the same fate.

However Arsenal has earned the benefit of the doubt and should be given a little bit of credit for what they have done.

Young flyer Gabriel Martinelli has been incredibly impressive in pretty much every match this season and I’ll back him to score in an Arsenal victory.

SGM: Arsenal HT/FT and Gabriel Martinelli Anytime Goalscorer @ $3.08

Manchester United vs West Ham
Monday 31 October, 3:15am, Old Trafford
Manchester United 1 – West Ham 0

All things considered, United should win this but West Ham have shown enough to make punters a little bit nervous about putting their faith in the Red Devils.

The Irons were spectacular in the 2-0 win over Bournemouth and defeat at Anfield aside, they have done a great job sparking their attack and picking up some points after a slow start.

In a tipping competition United would be the selection but at that price it’s just a little bit short considering what is going on there.

Instead looking at the overs for total goals offers a bit more value.

Back Over 2.5 Goals @ $1.77


As the calendar ticks over to December, we have our first midweek round of the English Premier League for season 2021/2022.

Two matches stand out above all others for Matchweek 14 with the Merseyside Derby Thursday morning, followed by Manchester United hosting Arsenal on Friday.

Elsewhere, Newcastle is still chasing its first win of the season and they will be hoping a home date with Norwich can provide just that.

We are previewing all 10 matches below so read on and see who we are backing.

Newcastle vs Norwich
Wednesday 1 December, 6:30am, St James’ Park
Newcastle 1 – Norwich 1

A month ago you might have given Newcastle a real chance in this fixture but with Norwich’s improved form, the visitors appear to be the value pick here.

On a three game unbeaten run and fresh off their third clean sheet of the season, Norwich has climbed off the foot of the Premier League table after their historic losing run.

Conversely, Newcastle struggled mightily at the Emirates and have shown absolutely nothing to feel good about their defensive ability as they are yet to keep a clean sheet.

Back Norwich to Win @ $3.90

Leeds vs Crystal Palace
Wednesday 1 December, 7:15am, Elland Road
Leeds 1 – Crystal Palace 0

Leeds’ lengthy absentee list is slowly shrinking but they still don’t appear to have the answers as they hover just above the danger zone.

There were no shortage of chances against Brighton in their scoreless draw on the weekend but they could not convert with Patrick Bamford still sidelined and Raphinha working his way back from injury.

Palace fell to Aston Villa on the weekend to halt a seven match unbeaten run that was headlined by five draws.

Both teams tend to specialise in draws and with the short turnaround, if they can get through this fixture with a point and no additions to the injury list it will be a moral victory.

Back the Draw @ $3.30

Southampton vs Leicester
Thursday 2 December, 6:30am, St Mary’s Stadium
Southampton 2 – Leicester 2

Something clicked with Leicester’s attack over the last week with seven goals scored over their Europa League and Premier League matches.

Playing in the continental second tier will have them prepared for the short turnaround in this match and they will face a Saints side very much down on confidence.

They followed up a 2-1 loss to Norwich with a meek effort at Anfield where they were demolished 4-0 and the scoreline flattered them.

If Leicester go up early then the rout could be on but with the Foxes listed as slight underdogs at the time of writing, the value is there to be had.

Back Leicester to Win @ $2.70

Watford vs Chelsea
Thursday 2 December, 6:30am, Vicarage Road
Watford 1 – Chelsea 2

Table topping Chelsea will travel to Vicarage Road for the first time since November 2019 looking to bank three points and keep the chasing pack at bay.

Having dropped two points at home to Manchester United on the weekend, you can bank on Thomas Tuchel doing everything in his power to elicit a response from his squad.

Admittedly the absences of Ngolo Kante and Ben Chilwell have impacted the squad but they have the depth to cover for both of those players, even at a slightly reduced output.

Watford has been hit and miss all season (mostly miss) and I’m happy to take on the Hornets here.

Back Chelsea to Win to Nil @ $2.15

West Ham vs Brighton And Hove Albion
Thursday 2 December, 6:30am, London Stadium
West Ham 1 – Brighton 1

Let’s keep this one as simple as possible, West Ham will win this fixture as Brighton just does not have the attacking prowess to match them goal for goal.

Perhaps if the weather turns sour then Brighton might have a better chance of playing the match on their terms.

But you cannot count on that, especially when looking at the forecast for Wednesday evening in London.

The last five head to head meetings have finished as score draws but I’ll take West Ham to break that streak and pick up three more points to stay in the top four.

Back West Ham to Win @ $1.87

Wolves vs Burnley
Thursday 2 December, 6:30am, Molineux Stadium
Wolves 0 – Burnley 0

After bottoming out in 18th spot after Matchweek 3, Wolves have gone on a spectacular run, picking up 20 points from the next 10 matches to climb up to sixth spot.

Their matches might be one for the purists with 10 of the 13 seeing two or fewer goals scored but it’s a nice reminder that style points do not equal ladder points.

Burnley wound up with an unexpected weekend off after their clash with Tottenham was snowed out, and they will be hoping that has not cooled off an attack that had registered nine goals in its last four league matches.

Burnley won’t mind playing in a low scoring grind of a contest and while Wolves are the more in form team, it’s tough to split two sides who will likely find it tough to score.

Back the Draw @ $3.40

Aston Villa vs Manchester City
Thursday 2 December, 7:15am, Villa Park
Aston Villa 1 – Manchester City 2

The Gerrard effect at Aston Villa has taken hold with the club going two for two since the former Liverpool midfielder took charge.

Now comes the biggest test for him as they host a Manchester City side that has won its last five matches in all competitions.

They were put to the test in tough conditions against West Ham on the weekend and came through with a 2-1 result, just the third time Both Teams to Score has hit in one of their matches.

I’ll take a return to normal service here as City’s defence clamps down on Villa and gives Gerrard a proper introduction to Premier League management.

Back Manchester City to Win to Nil @ $2.25

Everton vs Liverpool
Thursday 2 December, 7:15am, Goodison Park
Everton 1 – Liverpool 4

In the grand scheme of Merseyside Derbies, this is not shaping up as an overly competitive one.

Perhaps the only case to be made for Everton’s chances is that it is a local derby, and they will be wanting to get one over their rivals.

But in Liverpool’s current form, that is not a strong enough case to back against them and I’m going for a big value SGM.

The Reds front three have been in impeccable form so I’ll back all three of them to score in a Liverpool win.

SGM: Liverpool to Win, Jota, Salah and Mane Anytime Goalscorers @ $8.35

Tottenham vs Brentford
Friday 3 December, 6:30am, Tottenham Stadium
Tottenham 2 – Brentford 0

Spurs will have had a few extra days to stew over their Europa Conference League capitulation against Mura with the weekend’s postponement against Burnley.

Brentford will be buzzing after recording a hard-fought 1-0 win over Everton for their first clean sheet since October 17.

On paper Tottenham should win this one quite comfortably however it’s tough to ignore Brentford’s resilience in recent fixtures.

Antonio Conte still has some work to do with the Spurs backline and I can’t see either side keeping a clean sheet.

Back Both Teams to Score @ $1.85

Manchester United vs Arsenal
Friday 3 December, 7:15am, Old Trafford
Manchester United 3 – Arsenal 2

Ralf Rangnick is officially the new manager of Manchester United and he may take charge of his first fixture against Arsenal on Friday morning, assuming he can get his work permit sorted.

The German boss has a mountain of work ahead of him overhauling a United squad that has slipped to eighth on the Premier League table after originally being touted as title contenders.

With the short turnaround and limited time on the training park, it’s tough to see a major turnaround from the home side here, especially against an Arsenal team that will be out to prove a point.

The Gunners have been impressive for the most part this season, but have three big defeats at the hands of the other “big” clubs hanging over their head.

Arsenal have been very strong defensively and I’ll back them to frustrate United and find a way to pick up a second successive win at Old Trafford.

Back Arsenal to Win @ $3.60


There’s no time to rest in the Premier League as Matchweek 14 kicks off not long after the end of Matchweek 13.

It’s another big test for Tottenham’s title credentials with Leicester up next as Jose Mourinho’s men try to bounce back after going down to Liverpool during the week.

It’s a full slate of football this weekend and we’re previewing all ten matches here so read on to see who we are backing.

Crystal Palace vs Liverpool
Saturday 19 December, 11:30pm, Selhurst Park
Crystal Palace 0 – Liverpool 7

When it comes to competitive rivalries in the Premier League, this is not one of them.

Liverpool has dominated this fixture, winning the last six, usually by a fairly comfortable margin.

Admittedly their squad is still somewhat depleted but the players that are still taking to the pitch are pretty good in their own right.

The likes of Mo Salah and Sadio Mane should still be able to fire Liverpool to victory.

Back Liverpool and Over 2.5 Goals @ $2.10

Southampton vs Manchester City
Sunday 20 December, 2:00am, St Mary’s Stadium
Southampton 0 – Manchester City 1

City’s recent form is far from perfect but if you want to take a glass half full approach, they have not lost in their last seven fixtures and have only conceded one goal in that time.

If you want to take a glass half empty approach, some thoroughly uninspired performances including this week’s 1-1 draw against West Brom

18 goals from 12 matches in the Premier League is not the return Pep Guardiola would have been hoping for and if they want to get themselves back into the top four someone needs to start scoring some goals.

The Saints will not be an easy out however, looking to respond after a frustrating 1-1 draw away to 10-man Arsenal.

There’s not quite enough of a case to back Southampton outright however this match should see both teams find the scoresheet, especially with the form of Southampton’s forward line.

Back Both Teams to Score @ $1.70

Everton vs Arsenal
Sunday 20 December, 4:30am, Goodison Park
Everton 2 – Arsenal 1

It’s a tough time if you’re an Arsenal fan and things probably won’t get any better this weekend as a resurgent Everton come to town.

To make matters worse, their lone consistent defender Gabriel will miss this fixture after getting sent off against Southampton during the week.

At this stage you have to back against the flailing Gunners since it seems like the light at the end of the tunnel is a very long way away.

Back Everton to Win @ $2.30

Newcastle vs Fulham
Sunday 20 December, 7:00am, St James’ Park
Newcastle 1 – Fulham 1

Newcastle’s midweek fixture against Leeds could not have gone worse, with a late implosion leading to a 5-2 defeat.

Fulham is slowly starting to settle after a horrible start with five points from their last four matches putting them on the right end of the drop zone as Christmas approaches.

Both teams find themselves with massive questions at the back and that should lead to an open contest as both sides try to enter Christmas on a winning note.

Back Over 2.5 Goals @ $2.15

Brighton And Hove Albion vs Sheffield United
Sunday 20 December, 11:00pm, Amex Stadium
Brighton 1 – Sheffield United 1

This is the Premier League equivalent of coal under the Christmas tree with two of the most goal devoid sides facing each other here.

Brighton has not scored more than one goal in their last four matches while Sheffield just cannot score.

The Blades have a Premier League low five goals on the season so far but that’s good news for Brighton’s young goalkeeper Roberto Sanchez who is odds on to keep his second consecutive clean sheet against the Blades’ inept attack.

Back Under 1.5 Goals @ $2.65

Tottenham vs Leicester
Monday 21 December, 1:15am, Tottenham Stadium
Tottenham 0 – Leicester 2

It went from great to dreadful for Leicester in the space of three days after belting Brighton followed by a meek effort against Everton.

You would hope they put in a much better effort against a Tottenham side that will be eager for a bounce back of their own after losing late to Liverpool.

In a pinch, you have to like Tottenham however not enough to take them even at that price.

Considering the level of attacking talent on both sides, there is every chance this turns into a bit of a shootout as both teams push for a necessary three points.

Back Over 2.5 Goals @ $1.75

Manchester United vs Leeds
Monday 21 December, 3:30am, Old Trafford
Manchester United 6 – Leeds 2

Leeds will be as confident as can be after their late surge against Newcastle during the week.

United still has their clash against Sheffield to come (at the time of publish) however you would assume they are good for another three points there.

Overall, Leeds is just that little bit too inconsistent to back in with any confidence here so I’ll take them on.

Back Manchester United to Win @ $1.70

West Bromwich Albion vs Aston Villa
Monday 21 December, 6:15am, The Hawthorns
West Brom 0 – Aston Villa 3

Generally when a struggling club takes a point of Manchester City, it’s cause for celebration.

West Brom decided that was enough for Slaven Bilic and replaced him with relegation battle specialist Sam Allardyce.

Perhaps it will spark a massive turnaround and if you buy into the “new manager” theory, there’s value to be had on West Brom.

Especially when Aston Villa are plagued by inconsistency themselves.

Back West Brom to Win @ $3.70

Burnley vs Wolves
Tuesday 22 December, 4:30am, Turf Moor
Burnley 2 – Wolves 1

After a pair of thoroughly underwhelming performances Wolves got their season back on track with a win over Chelsea during the week.

Up next is a struggling Burnley side on shorter rest and I can’t see their squad depth giving them a chance in this one.

Wolves at their current price is excellent value.

Back Wolves to Win @ $2.20

Chelsea vs West Ham
Tuesday 22 December, 7:00am, Stamford Bridge
Chelsea 3 – West Ham 0

West Ham knows how to give Chelsea fits, having won three of the last six meetings and drawing two more in that time.

They are every chance of coming to Stamford Bridge and springing an upset against a Chelsea side that looks like it has come off the rails.

It’s a long shot but it’s hard to have a lot of confidence in a Chelsea side that has seemingly fallen off a cliff at their current price.

Back West Ham to Win $6.75


Newcastle vs Manchester City
Saturday 30 November, 11:30pm, St James’ Park
Newcastle 2 – Manchester City 2

Saturday night’s primetime match also looks like being the most one-sided in Week 14 of the Premier League and Newcastle will need to pull out all of the stops to compete effectively with Manchester City.

It was business as usual for the Cityzens in Week 13, who overcame an early deficit to beat and ultimately leapfrog Chelsea into third on the ladder. This is a big drop in class for them and if they are legitimately aiming for a third-consecutive title, they’ll be winning matches like this with their eyes closed.

The Magpies suffered another defeat, this time at the hands of Aston Villa and they would need to improve tenfold to have any chance here, which looks unlikely.

City to Nil ($2.70)

Burnley vs Crystal Palace
Sunday 1 December, 2:00am, Turf Moor
Burnley 0 – Crystal Palace 2

An intriguing fixture looks like materialising when Crystal Palace travels to Burnley and there is a case to be made for both clubs winning.

Burnley recorded an impressive win on the road over Bournemouth last week and with that, consolidated their position seventh on the ladder. Having also comfortably beaten West Ham leading into the week off, they are flying high and are typically more potent at Turf Moor than they are away.

Palace are winless in their last five Premier League matches, but they were unlucky not to steal a point from the league-leading Liverpool last week and a similar performance would see them right in the contest with Burnley.

Burnley to Win ($2.30)

Chelsea vs West Ham
Sunday 1 December, 2:00am, Stamford Bridge
Chelsea 0 – West Ham 1

The week’s solitary London Derby comes to us via way of Stamford Bridge, and another one-sided affair looms between Chelsea and West Ham.

Chelsea suffered only their third loss of the season in Week 13, but nearly every club in the world could rightly write off a loss to Manchester City and there is no doubt that this match shapes as the perfect opportunity to bounce back into the winner’s stall.

West Ham were outclassed by an out of form Tottenham Hotspur early on Sunday morning and they face a far tougher opponent in Chelsea. That was their third loss in succession, and another here would almost certainly see them drop into the bottom three.

4+ Goals ($2)

Liverpool vs Brighton And Hove Albion
Sunday 1 December, 2:00am, Albion
Liverpool 2 – Brighton 1

The league leaders return to Anfield and Brighton is the next unlucky club that is charged with attempting to stem this sensational run of form.

The Reds have not been defeated in season 2019/20; recording twelve impressive wins and drawing on only one occasion. A late goal from Palace’s Wilfried Zaha was almost immediately cancelled out by an 85th-minute strike from Roberto Firmino last week, and it is tough imagining a Brighton game plan that could possibly account for Liverpool’s potency.

Typically, the Seagulls have been winning some and losing some, but have suffered defeats at their last two league appearances. This match is simply a bridge too far for them.

Liverpool to Nil ($2.80)

Tottenham vs Bournemouth
Sunday 1 December, 2:00am, London Stadium
Tottenham 3 – Bournemouth 2

The action continues in North London when Tottenham step out for the second time under Jose Mourinho, this time against Bournemouth.

A new era is being entered at Spurs and a gutsy, albeit unpolished win over West Ham in Week 13 has laid the foundation for a successful climb back up the ladder under The Special One.

Interestingly, Bournemouth recorded a 1-0 win when these clubs last met in May, but it would take a similar effort for them to make it two in a row for the first time in their existence. The Cherries have been far better this season than their $8 tag in match betting here suggests, but I do think that they face an enormous task in a rejuvenated Spurs.

Both teams have been more than capable in front of goal and can each get on the scoresheet again.

Both Teams to Score ($1.70)

Southampton vs Watford
Sunday 1 December, 4:30am, St Mary’s Stadium
Southampton 2 – Watford 1

It’s last versus second last when Watford travels to the bottom of England to face Southampton early on Sunday morning, Australian time.

Southampton have not enjoyed their best start to a Premier League season and have really only been saved from the cellar by how much worse their Week 14 opponents have been. They are winless in their last eight league fixtures but won’t be offered a better opportunity than this.

Put simply, Watford have been awful this season and it looks to be a foregone conclusion that they will be caught in the relegation dogfight for the remainder of the campaign. The nineteenth-placed Southampton is clearly their best chance at a win for some time, but I don’t think they’re quite up to it.

Draw ($3.40)

Norwich vs Arsenal
Monday 2 December, 1:00am, Carrow Road
Norwich 2 – Arsenal 2

An opportunity looms for both Norwich City and Arsenal meet at the home of the former in Week 14.

There is no denying that Arsenal have been substantially short of their best this season and regardless of what they do from here, it will be another disappointing campaign for their long-suffering fans. They are winless in their last five Premier League fixtures.

The Canaries haven’t been any better and do find themselves in the relegation zone heading into Week 14. A rare win over Everton last week could be the confidence boost that they need to pull off an upset here.

The Gunners shouldn’t be resounding favourites, but they should be winning this one and there’s still some meat on the bone at current odds. I will be staying out.

No Bet

Wolverhampton vs Sheffield United
Monday 2 December, 1:00am, Molineux Stadium
Wolves 1 – Sheffield United 1

The match of the round looks like materialising in the Midlands on Monday morning when the fifth-placed Wolves host sixth-placed Sheffield United. Both clubs have been outstanding so far this season and a win here would massive for their respective campaigns.

Wolves’ obvious desire to stay in the topflight since returning to the Premier League last season has been echoed in their results and they look a live chance of claiming at least a Europa League berth this time around. Consecutive wins over Villa and Bournemouth have filled their sails with wind and they are justifiable favourites in the market again.

Even the bigwigs at Sheffield United surely could not have predicted this positive start to life in the Premier League and a top-ten finish is well and truly on the cards. The Blades have suffered only three losses this season but have also been held to draws at their last two starts.

Interestingly, both clubs have won only four times each this season and that alone suggests that this match has ‘draw’ written all over it.

Draw ($3.20)

Leicester vs Everton
Monday 2 December, 3:30am, King Power Stadium
Leicester 2 – Everton 1

Leicester City are faced with a terrific opportunity to keep the pressure on Liverpool by beating the league-leaders’ biggest foe on Monday morning.

The Foxes’ outstanding season continued with an easy win over Watford on the road last week and there is no reason why they cannot and will not record another win over a disappointing Everton outfit, who suffered another defeat to the relegation-threatened Norwich last week.

It’s tough imagining Everton causing too much trouble for Leicester anywhere on the pitch.

Both Teams To Score – ‘No’ ($1.95)

Manchester United vs Aston Villa
Monday 2 December, 3:30am, Old Trafford
Manchester United 2 – Aston Villa 2

The Matchday concludes at Old Trafford when Manchester United attempt to return to winning form at the expense of Aston Villa.

United could only manage a draw away to Sheffield United last week but given that side’s impressive form so far, the result really doesn’t read poorly. They are quickly losing touch with the top four and need to be winning matches like this one to keep their glimmer of hope alive.

Villa look likely to be caught in the relegation fight all season and another loss here won’t help.

United to Nil ($3)


This is one of those weekends where it is great to be a Premier League fan.

Saturday night will surely throw up some surprises as Week 14 builds to a crescendo with a phenomenal Sunday of local derbies.

It starts off with a London Derby featuring… one big side as Chelsea hosts Fulham before Arsenal face Tottenham at the Emirates all in the build up to Liverpool and Everton.

Read on for our previews, predictions and same game multis for all ten Premier League fixtures this weekend.

Cardiff vs Wolverhampton
Saturday 1 December, 7:00am, Cardiff Stadium
Cardiff 2 – Wolves 1

For the second straight week, Cardiff are involved in the first game on the Premier League schedule.

Honours have been evenly split between these clubs over the last four years with each side winning four meetings in the Championship.

Wolves have picked up eight points from their six away games so far with a perfectly symmetrical two wins, two draws and two losses so far.

Cardiff have picked up seven of their eight points at home but Wolves should have the quality to see them off here.

Goals remain a huge problem for Crystal Palace but if there was ever a week to shake off those issues, this is it.

Burnley have one of the leakiest defences in the Premier League but the but question remains, who can score the goals here?

Palace haven’t been shipping goals freely and did keep a clean sheet at Old Trafford last week so don’t expect a whole lot of highlights from this contest.

Sunday 2 December, 2:00am, John Smith’s Stadium
Huddersfield 1 – Brighton 2

An Aussie focused derby in the Premier League this weekend, with Aaron Mooy’s Huddersfield trying to keep their head above water when they take on Mat Ryan’s Brighton.

Last season it was Mooy’s side who emerged victorious overall, winning at home and drawing away.

Things haven’t been all that smooth for the Terriers so far, but a huge 2-0 win last week will give them confidence to continue that run of form here.

This game looks like it will be a tightly fought contest and when you consider eight of the last ten meetings have had two or fewer goals, that is a prudent play here.

Over the last two seasons you could pick this game purely on whose stadium this was being played at.

Manchester City 3 – Bournemouth 1

Things don’t get much easier for Bournemouth, after last week’s clash with Arsenal, they get to face the defending Champions who are coming off a huge win away to West Ham.

These sides have met six times in the Premier League and the form line is about as ugly as you could expect from two sides with such a gulf in class.

City have won all six encounters, with Bournemouth scoring a grand total of two goals in that time.

For the record City have piled up 21 goals in those six fixtures and have won to nil on four occasions.

In terms of the punting markets, there isn’t a lot of value in City to win (as expected) so it just comes down to whether you expect Bournemouth to score. If not back City to win to nil, otherwise look at the handicap market for value.

Newcastle vs West Ham
Sunday 2 December, 2:00am, St James’ Park
Newcastle 0 – West Ham 3

Newcastle comes into this game on a four-game unbeaten run while West Ham would love to bounce back from their defeat against Manchester City here.

This game will be pivotal for the Magpies as they look to improve on what has been a pretty poor home record so far, winning just two of their seven games to this point.

A vital win last week brought them level with the other teams in the relegation zone and a win could vault them out of it.

Helping that cause is the confidence that has come from winning three in a row and four of their last five against West Ham.

Even with those numbers favouring the home team, neither side has shown a whole lot of reason to feel that confident in anything other than a draw here.

Southampton vs Manchester United
Sunday 2 December, 4:30am, St Mary’s Stadium
Southampton 2 – Manchester United 2

Southampton have been a frustrating opponent for Manchester United over the last few seasons.

Since 2013/2014, they have been able to take points off United in six of the 10 Premier League meetings and have only lost by more than one goal once in that span.

Continuing on that line of form does look rather tough here with no wins at home so far this season, while United have won three of seven on the road.

Outside of their derby loss United have been in good form lately and should be able to come away with a low scoring win here.

Chelsea 2 – Fulham 0

The first derby of the day might not carry the history or the ferocity of the next two, but it still is going to be a nice way to get into a big night of action.

Chelsea and Fulham face off for the first time since March 2014 and the 84th time overall and recent history is not pretty reading for Caludio Ranieri’s side.

Fulham’s last win in this fixture was in 2006 with Chelsea winning 10 games since, including the last three straight.

Perhaps there will be some comfort in Fulham’s ability to pick up seven draws in that span but anything other than a big Chelsea win would be a major shock.

Arsenal vs Tottenham
Monday 3 December, 1:05am, Emirates Stadium
Arsenal 4 – Tottenham 2

Arsenal’s unbeaten run is flat out impressive, even if some of the results were harder to come by than they should have been.

Here they face another test of their top four credentials as Tottenham come to the Emirates fresh off a dominant win over Chelsea.

The Gunners have not lost a Premier League game at the Emirates since opening day but have been held to draws the last two times they have played in front of their home fans.

With an away heavy early season schedule, Tottenham have played eight of their 12 matches away from home and won an impressive seven of those eight.

They do have an extra 24 hours rest compared to their rivals, but that is one of the benefits of being in the Champions League instead of the Europa League, however Arsenal are more likely to rotate midweek travelling to the Ukraine.

In short this game looks like it will be very close and while Arsenal have a slight edge in the market, a draw is the best value play here.

Liverpool 1 – Everton 0

Liverpool enters the 283rd Merseyside Derby as clear favourites as they try to claim win number 119 in this fixture.

Everton were one of the few teams in the Premier League last season to not lose against Liverpool, drawing both the home and away matches (although they did lose when they met in the FA Cup).

It will be a big ask for Everton to pick up anything at all from this one as Liverpool have conceded just one goal at home all season, and the only opponent to take points off them were Manchester City.

With all due respect to the blue half of Merseyside, they are not on the same level as Manchester and while they can and will cause Liverpool some problems, expect a red-letter day here.

The first midweek round of the Premier League is upon us with Round 14 and squad depth becomes infinitely more important.

For the top six sides, midweek rotation is nothing new thanks to their continental commitments.

For those looking to experience the luxury of those footballing first world problems, this is the perfect opportunity to establish that they are where they belong.

Brighton And Hove Albion vs Crystal Palace
Wednesday 29 November, 6:45am, Amex Stadium

A cruel way to lose a point against Manchester United as Brighton scored an own goal to go down to Jose Mourinho’s side.

Palace are looking much better under Roy Hodgson and got a win against Stoke to give themselves a chance of being off the bottom of the table in December.

A draw will not be enough to get them off the bottom of the table in this round but that is the tip for this game.

Cruising to a 6-1 victory despite being eliminated from title contention just a few days earlier.

Harry Kane would love to replicate his goal scoring touch of that night when he netted four times.

While that may be an optimistic target, one goal and a victory for Tottenham is achievable.

Watford managed to claim a 3-1 upset victory in the corresponding fixture last September however outside of that, the history between these teams favours United.

While United current winning streak might not go another two decades, they should be able to extend it in to 2018 at least.

Newcastle have lost four straight, scoring just once in that run and their most recent 3-0 defeat at the hands of Watford will not help their confidence at all.

West Brom are not fairing that much better although they have scored three goals in their last five games, including a shock draw against Tottenham.

With the form line looking the way it is, there are not a whole lot of appealing plays here.


Arsenal vs Huddersfield Town
Thursday 30 November, 6:45am, Emirates Stadium

Arsenal have a great record against newly promoted sides and Huddersfield will face a stern test when they travel to the Emirates Thursday morning.

Huddersfield have lost three of their last four including a heartbreaker to Manchester City at home on the weekend.

While there will be some rotation for the Gunners they will have the quality to get by a side they are much better than.

They have not found themselves three points off the top four by accident and should get the job done away from home.

Chelsea vs Swansea City
Thursday 30 November, 6:45am, Stamford Bridge

Things are not looking great for Swansea right now as they try and get themselves out of the relegation scrap.

Swansea fought to a 0-0 draw to end a winless run but this is a big step up from Bournemouth.

Chelsea will be quite happy after their last gasp draw against Liverpool at the weekend.

That result ended their four-match winning run however they will not be too upset about having to settle for a point when looking at the big picture.

It is two sides going in opposite directions here and the scoreline will reflect that imbalance.

Throw in interesting clashes between Crystal Palace and Southampton as well as the promoted Middlesbrough and Hull City and it is another very big weekend of English Premier League action.

Manchester City vs Chelsea
Saturday December, 11:30pm, Etihad Stadium
Manchester City 1  - Chelsea 3

This is easily the biggest game of the weekend and could prove crucial when we reach the business end of the season.

Chelsea have won seven games on the trot, but it is Manchester City that will go into this clash as clear favourites.

Manchester City did not look particularly good against either Crystal Palace or Burnley and their record as home favourites over the past 12 months is a disappointing 9-5-3.

Chelsea have conceded just one goal in their past seven games and there is no doubt that they are the form team in the English Premier League.

They have won just one of their past four games as away underdogs, but they gave drawn two of these clashes and backing the draw in their fixtures over the past 12 months has been highly profitable.

This is set to be an outstanding game of football and the draw really does stand out at the current price of $3.40.

Crystal Palace have lost six games on the trot and it is no surprise that Southampton will start this clash as clear favourites.

Southampton ground out a narrow victory over Everton last weekend, but their results as away favourites don’t expire a great deal of confidence – they are 3-1-4 as away favourites.

Crystal Palace’s defence has been truly horrendous in recent weeks and how they managed to lose that clash with Swansea City last weekend I will never know.

They have lost their past six games as home underdogs and they are an extremely tough to trust from a betting perspective.

This is a game that the market looks to have got just about right and I am more than happy to stay out of this clash from a betting standpoint.

Stoke City returned to winning form against Watford last weekend and they will go into this clash with Burnley as clear favourites.

Stoke have won five of their past ten games as home favourites over the past 12 months and they are 5-6-1 on the back of a win.

Burnley were far from disgraced against Manchester City and a repeat of that effort would have them right in this clash.

They have lost four of their past five games as away underdogs for a clear loss and their record away from home is very poor.

Stoke should be able to make it two wins on the trot, but there is no value at their current price and this is another game that I am happy to stay out of from a betting standpoint.

Leicester City have not won a game in the English Premier League for over a month, but they will still go into this clash as clear favourites.

It is fair to say that they have struggled during their title defence, but they have still won three of their past six games as away favourites for a narrow profit.

Sunderland had their winning run ended by Liverpool last weekend and their record against Leicester City is poor.

They have won only two of their past 10 games as home underdogs for a clear loss and they have really struggled against the best teams in the competition.

Leicester City have an excellent chance to return to winning form and anything better than even money is an excellent bet.

Tottenham Hotspur had their unbeaten run ended by Chelsea last weekend, but they will still start this clash as clear favourites.

Tottenham have won nine of their past 16 games as home favourites for a loss and they have drawn four games in this scenario.

Swansea City returned to winning form with their stunning victory over Crystal Palace last weekend and they are sure to take plenty of confidence from that performance.

They have won just three of their past 17 games as away underdogs for a profit, but they are clearly tough to trust from a betting standpoint.

Tottenham are clearly the team to beat in this clash, but there is no value at their current quote.

West Bromwich Albion vs Watford
Sunday 4 December, 2:00am, The Hawthorns
West Bromwich Albion 3  - Watford 1

West Bromwich Albion have found form in the past month and they have won two of their past three games, while they drew with Hull City last weekend.

They will go into this clash as clear favourites and home favourtism is not a position in which they have thrived over the past 12 months – they have won just two of their past eight games in this scenario.

Watford suffered a disappointing loss at the hands of Stoke City and stringing together victories has really proven to be a problem for the side this weekend.

The Hornets have won four of their past 16 games as away underdogs for a narrow loss, but they are still excellent value against a West Bromwich Albion side that have been overrated by the market.

I maintain that Watford are one of the most underrated sides in the English Premier League and they are great value at their current price this weekend.

Arsenal have won seven of their past 13 games as away favourites for a very small loss and their record against West Ham in this scenario is excellent.

West Ham have not won in over a month, but they were able to defend strongly against Manchester United last weekend and they were able to beat Arsenal last season.

The Gunners have won four of their past seven games as home underdogs for a clear profit and they have lost just one game in this scenario over the past 12 months.

Liverpool have added a more ruthless streak this season and they continue to improve their record from a betting perspective, but they have still only won seven of their past 15 games as away favourites.

Bournemouth were no match for Arsenal last weekend and they face an equally tough assignment against Liverpool.

They generally save their best form for their home fans and their record as home underdogs is a positive 3-1-4 over the past 12 months.

Manchester United have won their past two games against Everton, but Everton have made a habit of upstaging their rivals in recent years.

The Red Devils have won just four of their past 11 games as away favourites for a clear loss, while they have won two of their past five games against Everton in this scenario.

Everton’s form has fallen off a cliff following their strong start to the season and it has been over a month since they were able to get the job done.

Middlesbrough do not have a great deal of experience as favourites and their record in front of their home fans this season has been very poor.

Hull City were able to take a point from their clash with West Bromwich Albion and they will likely look to frustrate Middlesbrough with their typically grinding defensive effort.
