Premier League preview weekend 21-22 January 2017

Premier League preview weekend 21-22 January 2017

Chelsea extended their lead at the top of the Premier League with a fine win over the champions last weekend. At the other end of the table, just a point separates the four bottom sides in a tight relegation battle.

Two London title challengers have straightforward looking fixtures this week against promoted sides while there’s a terrific fixture on Saturday evening as Manchester City host Spurs.
Keep reading for our Premier League betting preview.

Premier League bet of the weekend

Everton‘s 4-0 win over Manchester City last Sunday represented Pep Guardiola’s biggest defeat as a manager. It was also a timely win for the Toffees who have now taken 10 points from the last 12 available after an indifferent run.
Outside the top six Ronald Koeman’s side are proving to be the ‘best of the rest’ and they can continue their excellent run this weekend as they travel to struggling Crystal Palace.
Sam Allardyce’s arrival seems to have failed to galvanise the Eagles who sit outside the bottom three on goal difference and who have lost five of their last six league matches. Only Hull and Swansea have conceded fewer league goals than Palace this season and this match starts a crucial run of matches against sides around them in the table.
Everton are in good form and look superb value to win this at 5/4.

All Saturday’s action

Liverpool‘s draw with Manchester United last Sunday means they have lost a little bit of ground in the title race although they should be able to return to winning ways this weekend as they host bottom side Swansea City.
The Swans have lost five of their last six in the league although it is so tight at the bottom that a win could see them climb out of the relegation zone. Paul Clement’s side are an enormous 12/1 to win at Anfield while the home side are just 1/5.
There’s a brilliant-looking fixture on Saturday tea-time as Manchester City host Tottenham.
City were awful in the second half against Everton last Sunday and their 4-0 hammering was their second defeat in three league matches. They face a Spurs team on a great run, with Mauricio Pochettino’s side having won six in a row, scoring 19 times in the process.
Spurs sit second in the table and look set to be the main challengers to the league leaders for the second season in a row. On current form they look terrific value at 5/2.
No wins in six have seen Watford slip down the table and their slide could continue this Saturday as they face Bournemouth. Eddie Howe’s side have won just one of their last five but this is a fixture they should really win at 4/5.
Middlesbrough are the lowest scorers in the division and so the 2/1 available on a West Ham United win at the Riverside will tempt many. West Bromwich Albion are just 7/10 to beat struggling Sunderland at The Hawthorns while Manchester United are just 8/13 to win at Stoke City.

The rest of the weekend’s matches

Chelsea have won 14 of their last 15 league matches and sit seven points clear at the top of the table. Despite the absence of top scorer Diego Costa the Blues were still too good for Leicester last weekend and they should have no trouble continuing their excellent run this Sunday.
Antonio Conte’s side face Hull City who dragged themselves off the foot of the table with a vital win last weekend. You can get a massive 16/1 on a Tigers win while Chelsea are just 1/6 to prevail.
Burnley have secured all but one of their Premier League points this season at Turf Moor and so it’s perhaps no surprise that they are also 16/1 to win in London this weekend. Sean Dyche’s side travel to Arsenal who are unbeaten in four and just 2/11 to win here.
Four consecutive defeats have seen Southampton slide down the table and they face a tricky match at St Mary’s against the champions Leicester City. The Foxes’ form isn’t particularly good – one win in six – but they face a Saints side on a bad run of form. Claudio Ranieri’s side will leapfrog Southampton in the table with a win and they look good value at 10/3.
