Premiership Preview – 12 September 2014
This entry was posted on Friday, September 12th, 2014
The half-term holiday for the Premier League that is the International week is finally over and with England more or less securing their place in Euro 2016 attention can turn to domestic toils for the likes of Phil Jones and Rooney as they try to get Manchester United away from the relegation zone.
The Red Devils welcome Harry Redknapp’s QPR to the Theatre of Dreams and if it’s anything like QPR’s last away performance – at Spurs – then it could be a long afternoon for the Londoners. However, has there ever been a better time to go to Old Trafford? Indeed it’ll be a rare trip up north this season where The Hoops lie above their opponents in the table. In our opinion backing Man United at 2/7 with Bet365 this weekend cannot be the way to go, instead lay United to be leading at Half-Time at 1.73 on Betfair. They’ve led just five times in their last 14 home league games.
Everton haven’t had the start to the season that many expected, but if they can shore up a defence that has shipped 10 goals in the opening three fixtures then surely they’ll start to pick up the points. They have a wonderful opportunity to grab three when they visit the Hawthorns this weekend. West Brom have been tipped by many to get relegated and their weak showing against Swansea only cements those thoughts. Everton should have too much firepower and are a value pick at 6/5 with Bet365.
As with many new top flight teams, Burnley have found it hard to score goals at this level, with just one strike in their opening three games. Palace may only have one point on the board this campaign but they have scored five goals already have only failed to score in one of their last 11 Premier League fixtures. It may not be a classic at Selhurst this weekend, but back the Eagles to come out on top at 5/4 with Bet365.
Spurs travel to the North East on Saturday and curiously of their last eight Premier League away games, seven have seen only one side get on the scoresheet, whilst two thirds of Sunderland’s last six have only seen at least one of the sides fail to score. Back ‘No’ in the both teams to score market at 2.1 on Betfair.
