It has been another miserable week for Chelsea, as a second defeat to Liverpool in 12 days heaped further pressure on Andre Villas Boas. We think it is going to get worse for the Chelsea pensioners this weekend as the Blues travel to Newcastle, a side yet to lose at home this season. Back Newcastle in the draw no bet market, 7/4 with Ladbrokes.
Whilst it wasn’t a full strength United team that went out to Crystal Palace in the Carling Cup this week, nine internationals featured for the Red Devils and Sir Alex will be looking for a response. However, we feel Aston Villa, who have drawn seven of their opening 13 Premier
Vertigo all around White Hart Lane these days, with a win on Saturday set to propel Spurs into second. Redknapp’s men are yet to draw at home whilst Bolton haven’t drawn at all this season. Spurs have won their last four Premier League games by a two goal margin and should do so again. Back Spurs -1 on the Asian Handicap at 43/50 with Ladbrokes. We also like the look of 3-1 Spurs at 11.5 on Betfair.
Blackburn fans were joking this week how manager Steve Kean couldn’t even win the sack race but their league form is not a laughing matter. Swansea on the other hand, have impressive recent performances to their name at Arsenal and particularly Liverpool (where they claimed a point), so will fancy coming away with something. The Swans haven’t scored in the last three but we fancy a score draw at Ewood Park. Back the draw at 12/5 with bet365 and we’re happy to dabble on the 2-2 at 14/1 with Ladbrokes.
