Premier League preview weekend 25-27 February 2017

Premier League preview weekend 25-27 February 2017

After a mixed bag of results in the FA Cup, the Premier League returns this week with eight intriguing matches.

Chelsea can cement their lead at the top of the division with a home win while there are also some vital games at the bottom of the table. Keep reading for our Premier League betting preview.

Premier League bet of the weekend

Hull City looked all but doomed at the turn of the year but despite still being in the top three, the Tigers have been more impressive in recent weeks and could lift themselves out of the relegation zone this weekend.
City have beaten Manchester United and Liverpool in recent weeks and were a little unfortunate to lose 2-0 at Arsenal last time out. They have a great chance to grab a vital three points this weekend as they welcome Burnley.
While they may sit comfortably in mid-table, Burnley have secured just one point away from home in the league this season, scoring just five away goals. The Clarets have the worst away record in the division and come into this match with injury problems and on the back of an embarrassing 1-0 defeat to Lincoln City in the FA Cup.
Hull have improved under Marco Silva and have won their last four home matches in all competitions. They look terrific value to win at 6/5.

All Saturday’s action

With just 13 matches to go, Chelsea sit eight points clear at the top of the league and they have a chance to consolidate their lead as they face Swansea City at Stamford Bridge.
A few weeks ago this would have looked like a nailed-on home win but the Swans have been in good form under new boss Paul Clement. They have won three of their last four matches to climb to 15th in the table and were unlucky to lose at Manchester City earlier this month.
It’s no surprise that the Blues are just 1/4 to win but on current form the 12/1 on Swansea looks very long.
There’s a relegation six-pointer at Selhurst Park on Saturday as Crystal Palace welcome Middlesbrough.
Palace have taken just four points from the last 30 available in the league and have dropped to 19th in the table. Boro have won just one of their last ten league games and so this is a match between two out-of-form sides.
Aitor Karanka’s side have scored the fewest goals in the division but they also boast the fourth best defensive record. The 0-0 draw is available at 11/2.
Despite their poor run Sunderland are just two points from safety although they face a tough task this week at Everton. Ronald Koeman’s side are unbeaten in eight matches and should win this at 2/5. West Bromwich Albion look absolutely exceptional value at 21/20 to beat Bournemouth while improving West Ham United look decent value at 9/5 to win at inconsistent Watford.

The rest of the weekend’s matches

With just one league win in four, it’s been a rocky few weeks for Tottenham who now sit ten points behind league leaders Chelsea. With other teams breathing down their neck for a Champions League berth it is a vital few weeks for Spurs and they can secure a much-needed win this Sunday as they face Stoke City.
The Potters’ last nine matches have seen them win three, draw three and lose three which rather underlines their inconsistent form. Considering Stoke have precious little to play for I expect Spurs to win this at 4/11.
Five consecutive defeats have seen Leicester City fall to just a place above the drop zone and the champions are in serious relegation trouble. The Foxes can’t buy a result currently and they still haven’t scored a league goal in 2017. They welcome Liverpool to the King Power Stadium on Monday night with the away side having ended a poor run with a 2-0 win last time out.
Jurgen Klopp’s side can consign Leicester to a sixth successive league defeat at 6/10.
