Premier League Preview – Week 11

Premier League Preview Week 11

No early game this Saturday and all 6 matches kick off at 3pm with the other 4 all being played on Sunday.

We only had 2 winners last week and the bad spell continues for now but keep the faith we must!

Aston Villa host Cardiff and other than their rather flukey win against City, they failed to win any other of their 6 games. Cardiff will be full of confidence after winning the first ever all Welsh Premier League match and I have an away win here.

Chelsea are at home to West Brom now managed by Mourinho’s old friend Steve Clarke. Chelsea had a surprise defeat at Newcastle last week and will be cautious in this one. Hazard returns to the squad after being left out for disciplinary reasons and Chelsea are too short for me. West Brom have proved they can beat anyone on their day and the draw at 5-1 looks like a good price.

The prem’s whipping boys Crystal Palace are at home against Everton and it looks like it will be an 8th successive defeat for the low soaring Eagles.

Liverpool are ridiculously short at 1.25 against Fulham. I struggle to see anything other than a Liverpool win especially now Coutinho is fit again and pushing for a place but the price is ridiculous in my opinion and the value on Fulham snatching a shock at 14-1.

The 2 teams that I’ve been massively underrating so far meet each other on Saturday. They are Southampton and Hull and I’ve since come to the conclusion that the Saints are the real deal but still expect Hull’s form to drop off and the saints should win this one,.

Norwich v West Ham has all the makings of a bore fest. Norwich will want to keep it tight after getting thumped at City last week and this looks set to be a low scoring affair. Morale will be low at Norwich and I make West Ham favourites here.

On to Sunday and the game of the weekend is undoubtedly Man Utd v Arsenal. United’s form is picking up, albeit slowly while Arsenal are continuing to impressive. Aaron Ramsey is in red hot form and you struggle to see how United’s midfield will compete with Arsenals and I don’t think United should be favourites.

Arsenal are far from water tight at the back though and with Van Persie and Rooney in good form this game could still go either way but the value definitely with the Gunners.

Swansea v Stoke is on at the same time unfortunately so we won’t get to watch this potential classic. Stoke have played some good football under Hughes but are struggling to get results and won none of their last 6. Swansea aren’t in great form either though and Stoke are a decent price to snatch this.

Before those two we have Tottenham at home to Newcastle which could make for an entertaining match and Sunderland against Man City. Spurs are pretty short but I think they get the job done against the Magpies.

Sunderland won their home fixture with Man City 1-0 for the third successive season on Boxing Day 2012 and although it’s tough to see that happening again on Sunday, 8-1 is a huge price and looks value to me.

You can see the estimates for this week in full here as well as the results so far: Why not have a go yourself.
