EPL Preview, Sunday 30 December


There are 4 live English Premier League matches taking place on Sunday and we suggest a bet in each.


Crystal Palace v Chelseaclick here to bet

Palace are 14th on the table after a disappointing goalless draw at home to Cardiff. They had previously caused one of the upsets of the season when they beat Manchester City 3-2 on the road. Chelsea are 4th on the log with 3 wins in their last 4 starts including a 2-1 away win at Watford in the late kick-off on Boxing Day. Chelsea have won 6 of 9 away matches this season.

Suggested Bet: Over 2.5 goals at 8/10

This fixture has a history of goals and this bet would have arrived the last 4 times the sides have met in the EPL.


Burnley v West Hamclick here to bet

Burnley are 18th on the table and have lost their last 3 matches including a 5-1 home defeat to Everton last time out. They have only won 2 home matches out of 9 this season. West Ham moved to 9th on the log with their 5th win in 6 starts when they beat Southampton 2-1 away on Thursday night. The Hammers are unbeaten in their last 5 away starts and have won their last 3 on the road.

Suggested Bet: West Ham win at 5/4

West Ham are looking in great form especially on the road and they can beat a Burnley side that looks in all sorts of trouble.


Southampton v Manchester City – click here to bet

Southampton are 16th on the table after a home loss to West Ham last time out. They have only won once in 9 starts at home this season but that win did come against Arsenal in their penultimate home start. Manchester City have slipped to 3rd on the log 7 points behind Liverpool after successive defeats away at Leicester and at home to Palace and they have only taken 3 points from the last 12 they have played for.

Suggested Bet: Both Teams to Score – YES at 9/10

City have been conceding more goals than they usually do and this bet would have arrived in 8 of the last 9 Southampton matches and in 5 of the last 6 City games.


Manchester United v Bournemouthclick here to bet

United have won both of their matches since parting ways with Mourinho although it must be said that that they have faced fairly soft opposition in Cardiff and Huddersfield. They are 6th on the table and will fancy 3 more points against 12th placed Bournemouth who have lost 3 of their last 4 games including a 5-0 hammering at Spurs on Boxing Day.

Suggested Bet: Handicap, Man United -1 at 9/10

Bournemouth have lost their last 3 away matches by more than a goal and I expect more of the same against a United side growing in confidence.
