Can the Special One Halt Liverpool’s Title Charge?

Sheffield United host West Ham United on Friday evening but it is Liverpool’s trip to Spurs that is undoubtedly the stand-out fixture in the Premier League this weekend. Here at Compare Betting Sites we will preview the clash in North London, as well as the other eight fixtures taking place on Saturday and Sunday. As usual, our weekend Premier League preview will include team news, betting tips and odds courtesy of our betting partners, Coral. 

Saturday 11th January (kick-off 3:00pm unless stated)

Crystal Palace vs Arsenal (12:30pm) 

Saturday kicks off with a London derby at Selhurst Park where Arsenal are the visitors. Arsenal are aiming for a third consecutive win in all competitions for the first time since September. The Gunners have shown improvement in recent weeks and are unbeaten away from home since former manager, Unai Emery, left the club. 

The Gunners have scored 11 league goals on the road this season and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored 8 of them. Therefore, Aubameyang will inevitably be popular in the goal scoring markets. Coral are offering 21/20 on Aubameyang to score at any time on Saturday or 14/5 for him to open the scoring. 

Hosts, Crystal Palace, can equal their best ever points return after 22 Premier League games with a win on Saturday. Roy Hodgson’s side sit one place and one point above Arsenal with 28 points from 21 games. 

Match Odds 

Crystal Palace – 7/2 

Draw – 27/10 

Arsenal – 5/6 

Chelsea vs Burnley 

Despite occupying a top four spot, Chelsea’s home form is becoming a cause for concern for Frank Lampard. The Blues have lost each of their past two league games at Stamford Bridge, going down to defeat against both Southampton and Bournemouth. Chelsea have not lost three home league games in a row since 1993. 

Meanwhile, Burnley arrive in west London as one of the division’s most out-of-form sides. Sean Dyche’s side have lost six of their last eight league games to slip to 15th in the league table. The Clarets have failed to score in half of those eight games so Chelsea to win to nil should be considered at Evens. 

Match Odds 

Chelsea – 3/10 

Draw –9/2 

Burnley – 11/1 

Everton vs Brighton & Hove Albion 

Everton have improved since the sacking of Marco Silva with Carlo Ancelotti and Duncan Ferguson before him overseeing an upturn in fortunes. The Toffees have lost just once in the league since Silva left but could rotate their team after a disappointing FA Cup loss to local rivals, Liverpool. 

Brighton have slipped to 14th in the league after winning just one of their past six league games. The struggling Seagulls have never won at Goodison Park, only avoiding defeat on two occasions. 

Since Carlo Ancelotti took charge at Everton, no side have had more Premier League shots than the Toffees. It seems just a matter of time before they start converting those shots into goals. Richarlison (13/10) and Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Evens) should both be considered in the any time scorer market whilst over 3.5 match goals could prove great value at 2/1. 

Match Odds 

Everton - Evens 

Draw – 13/5 

Brighton & Hove Albion – 29/10 

Leicester City vs Southampton 

The reverse fixture at St Mary’s finished in a 9-0 win for Leicester City but their meeting at the King Power is likely to be a much tighter affair. Since that embarrassing defeat at home, Southampton have improved considerably. The Saints have conceded just 13 goals in 11 league games since and are currently on a five-game unbeaten run, winning four. 

Danny Ings is one of the division’s most in-form forwards, scoring nine goals in his last nine league starts. Ings has 13 Premier League goals already this season and is 7/5 to score again at the King Power. Only Jamie Vardy (17) has more league goals this season and will return to the starting lineup after a short absence following the birth of his third child.  Vardy can be backed at 8/13 to make a goal-scoring return or 11/5 to score first. 

Whether Vardy starts or not, Ayoze Perez could be the Foxes’ danger man. Perez has scored a hat-trick in each of last two games against Southampton, including the 9-0 win this season. Perez is 21/10 to score at any time or a massive 14/1 to claim two or more goals. 

Match Odds

Leicester City – 7/10 

Draw – 3/1 

Southampton – 4/1 

Manchester United vs Norwich City  

After their miserable Carabao Cup performance in midweek Manchester United need to produce an impressive display on Saturday to ease the pressure on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his players. The Red Devils’ return of 32 points from 21 league games is their worst return in the Premier League era.

Visitors, Norwich City, are without a win in any of their past eight league games and have claimed just one win in the past 16. The Canaries have the worst defensive record in the league, conceding 41 league goals. At Old Trafford they’ll face one of the division’s most in-form forwards in Marcus Rashford. Rashford was on target in the 3-1 defeat to Manchester City in the week and already has 12 league goals this season – his best ever Premier League goal tally. 

You should consider Marcus Rashford at 8/13 to score at any time against Norwich City. However, the Canaries have led in six of their last eight league games so top scorer, Teemu Pukki, may prove excellent value at 11/2 to score first. Manchester United have just three clean sheets in the league this season and in what is a must-win game they should be backed at 19/10 to win with both teams to score. 

Match Odds 

Manchester United – 4/11 

Draw – 4/1 

Norwich City – 15/2  

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Newcastle United 

Two sides in need of a win meet at Molineux where Wolves host Newcastle United. Home side, Wolves have lost two consecutive league matches and could lose three league games in a row for the first time under Nuno Espirito Santo. Injury-hit Newcastle United visit the West Midlands having lost three league games in a row. 

With both sides desperate to end their losing streak, a draw could be the sensible bet here. The reverse fixture at St James Park ended in a stalemate; the sixth draw in the past nine meetings between the sides. 

Match Odds 

Wolverhampton Wanderers – 1/2 

Draw – 16/5 

Newcastle United – 7/1 

Tottenham Hotspur vs Liverpool (5:30pm) 

In the day’s late kick-off, Liverpool will hope to move another step closer to a maiden Premier League title in a mouth-watering match-up with Spurs in north London. Jurgen Klopp’s side have dropped just two points all season, opening up a 13-point lead at the league’s summit. 

The Reds have been sensational in the league this season, winning 19 of their first 20 fixtures. Manchester City’s all-conquering team from 2017/18 are the only other Premier League team to match that record. No side has ever won 20 from 21 at the start of a league campaign in any of Europe’s big five leagues. 

Liverpool’s chances of winning have been boosted by the news that Spurs forward, Harry Kane, has been ruled out until April. However, it is the league leaders’ own fire power that has seen them relentless charge to a first title in 30 years. Liverpool have had 16 different goal scorers already this season and have scored in 29 consecutive league games. 

Fresh from being crowed African Player of the Year, Sadio Mane, will start for Liverpool, hoping to add to the 11 league goals he’s scored already this season. The Reds’ top scorer is 11/8 to open the scoring at Spurs whilst he is 7/2 to score at any time. Mohamed Salah is one league goal behind Mane’s 11-goal haul this season but the Egyptian remains an equally serious threat to the Spurs defence. Salah is 4/1 to score first and 11/10 to score at any time. 

If Spurs are to earn an unlikely win then Heung Min Son will be their best attacking hope. Son returns from a recent ban to lead the line in Kane’s absence. The South Korean international is 5/2 to score at any time against Liverpool. 

Since Jose Mourinho took charge at Tottenham Hotspur they have earned just one clean sheet in eleven games yet with Kane out injured he will look to park the proverbial bus. If you’re a fan of the Special One then you could be tempted by the 0-0 draw at 14/1. Alternatively, Liverpool to win and over 2.5 match goals is 21/10.

Match Odds 

Tottenham Hotspur – 15/4 

Draw – 3/1 

Liverpool – 8/11

Sunday 12th January 

AFC Bournemouth vs Watford (2:00pm) 

Two of the Premier League’s bottom three meet on the south coast as AFC Bournemouth host Watford at the Vitality Stadium. Injury-hit Bournemouth have struggled over the past few weeks and find themselves in the Premier League’s relegation zone for the first time in over two years. Eddie Howe’s side have earned just four points from the past 30 available. The Cherries have won just twice in the league since September but incredibly those wins came against Manchester United and Chelsea. 

Watford may be a place below Bournemouth in 19th but the Hornets are on the up. Under new manager, Nigel Pearson, Watford have earned ten points from their past five matches, compared to the 9 points gained in 16 pre-Pearson matches. In fact, since Pearson took charge only Liverpool and Manchester City have earned more Premier League points than Watford. 

Watford’s upturn in fortunes has been down to a huge improvement in their defensive form. The Hornets conceded 30 goals in their first 16 games but have let in just four in their subsequent five matches, keeping two clean sheets. 

Seven of the nine previous top-flight meetings between Bournemouth and Watford have finished in a draw including the reverse fixture earlier this season and the meeting between the pair at the Vitality last season. 

Match Odds 

AFC Bournemouth – 33/20 

Draw – 23/10 

Watford – 33/20 

Aston Villa vs Manchester City (4:30pm) 

The final Premier League game of the weekend will see Aston Villa host last season’s champions, Manchester City, at Villa Park. By the time they kick off Villa could find themselves in the bottom three and City could be 17 points adrift of league leaders, Liverpool. 

Home side, Aston Villa, have won two of their last three Premier League games but were handed a double injury blow last week with both goalkeeper, Tom Heaton and forward, Wesley, ruled out for the rest of the season. Stand-in goalkeeper, Orjan Nyland, impressed against Leicester City in the Carabao Cup but the absence of Wesley will be a major concern for manager, Dean Smith. Jonathan Kodjia was expected to deputise but he may also miss out through injury, leaving the home side without a fit centre forward. Aston Villa to score under 1.5 goals in the game is a short price at 1/5 but, it could still be worth a punt. 

Visitors, City, could recall Sergio Aguero to the starting lineup for the trip to Villa Park. City’s all-time top scorer is one goal short of equalling Thierry Henry’s Premier League record goal tally (175) for a foreign player. Aguero has scored six goals in the last four Premier League games he’s started against Aston Villa and should be considered at 13/5 to score at any time or 1/2 to score first. 

Match Odds 

Aston Villa – 16/1 

Draw – 7/1 

Manchester City – 1/6
