Premier League Heavyweights Kick Off Weekend Betting

After a week dominated by Champions League football, on and off the field, the Premier League resumes this weekend with all twenty teams in action across three days. You may be forgiven for overlooking the football with the looming super fight between heavyweight giants, Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder, but there is some incredible football to enjoy, starting with Jose Mourinho’s return to Stamford Bridge. Here at Compare Betting Sites we’ll preview all ten Premier League games taking place from Saturday to Monday, providing odds courtesy of our betting partner, InterBet. 

Saturday 22nd February 

Chelsea vs Tottenham Hotspur (12:30pm)  

The weekend starts at Stamford Bridge with a meeting of master and apprentice as former Chelsea boss, Jose Mourinho, locks horns with his former player and current Blues boss, Frank Lampard. The two fierce London rivals are embroiled in an intriguing battle for Champions League qualification.  Whilst Manchester City’s potential ban from Europe will open the door for the fifth-place team to enter next season’s Champions League, the top four remains the target for a handful of clubs. Chelsea currently occupy fourth spot, one place and one point above Spurs. 

Despite their lofty league positions, both teams are struggling for form with a raft of injuries a major contributing factor. Spurs will be without Harry Kane, Heung-Min Son and Moussa Sissoko whilst Chelsea could be without Tammy Abraham, Christian Pulisic, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Andreas Christensen. N’Golo Kante will definitely sit out the visit of Spurs after limping out of Chelsea’s defeat to Manchester United.

Chelsea have already lost more games at home in all competitions this season (7) than in any season since 1994/95. With both clubs deprived of so much attacking talent, under 2.5 match goals is our preferred bet here at Evens. The draw will also prove popular amongst bettors but don’t rule out the possibility of Spurs’ European hangover continuing on Saturday lunchtime. 

Match odds 

Chelsea – 5/7 

Draw – 3/1 

Tottenham Hotspur – 7/2

Burnley vs AFC Bournemouth

Burnley are making a late charge towards European qualification and with ten points from their past four games, the Clarets are one of the Premier League’s most in-form teams. Next up for Sean Dyche’s side is a home tie against struggling Bournemouth. The Cherries have lost seven of their past eight league games and are just two points above the drop zone. 

Callum Wilson has scored twice in his past three league games, ending a run of 15 goal-less matches. Wilson remains Bournemouth’s main goal threat and at 11/5, he will no doubt be popular in the anytime scorer market.

Burnley has the upper hand in recent head-to-head fixtures between these sides having won each of the past three Premier League meetings. Burnley’s Premier League record against Bournemouth now stands at five wins from seven matches and we are tipping them to win again at Turf Moor.

Match odds 

Burnley – 6/5 

Draw – 11/5 

AFC Bournemouth – 5/2 

Crystal Palace vs Newcastle United 

A couple of weeks ago both Crystal Palace and Newcastle United looked secure in mid-table but the loser of this fixture at Selhurst Park will be looking nervously over their shoulders at the chasing pack. Palace’s poor form is of record-breaking proportions. The Eagles have gone seven Premier League games without a win – the longest in the club’s history. They have also failed to keep a clean sheet in ten consecutive league games which is also a record. Having lost each of the past three games, Crystal Palace are now just six points above the bottom three. However, it is not all doom and gloom in south east London, a win at home to Newcastle will give the Eagles their highest ever Premier League points tally after 27 games (33). 

Newcastle United are just a point better off but are also winless in three league games. Steve Bruce’s side have fired a blank in consecutive games having failed to score against both Arsenal and Norwich City. Incredibly, the last six goals scored in games between these sides have come from set-pieces, therefore, you may get excellent value in the first goalscorer markets. The trip to Selhurst Park will be Jamaal Lascelles’ 100th Premier League appearance, why not back the visiting captain to score first at 40/1? 

Match odds 

Crystal Palace - Evens 

Draw – 11/5 

Newcastle United – 3/1 

Sheffield United vs Brighton & Hove Albion 

Sheffield United are the Premier League surprise packages this season and are in with an excellent chance of finishing in the European qualification places this season. The Blades are currently in sixth position but with the teams in fourth and fifth set to go head-to-head at Stamford Bridge, a win would be enough to move them up to fifth.

Chris Wilder’s team has been built on a solid defence, conceding just 24 goals in 26 games so far; a record bettered only by runaway leaders, Liverpool (15). Remarkably, their return of 28 goals scored is three less than Saturday’s visitors, Brighton, yet they are 12 points and 9 places better off than the Seagulls.  

Inevitably, we’re backing Sheffield United to win at Bramall Lane but given their record as one of the league’s best defences and worst attacks, we’re not expecting a glut of goals. A 1-0 home win is 5/1 and should be considered. 

Match odds 

Sheffield United – 20/21 

Draw – 9/4 

Brighton & Hove Albion – 3/1 

Southampton vs Aston Villa 

Aston Villa manager, Dean Smith, has insisted his side can drag Southampton back into the relegation mix with a win at St Mary’s and we have to agree. A Danny Ings-inspired Southampton have moved clear of the drop zone in recent weeks but consecutive defeats have left them vulnerable again. Southampton are seven points clear of the bottom three but their home form remains a major cause for concern. Southampton have won just three of their 13 home league games; the worst in the division. 

Aston Villa have won just once of their past five league games and are the only Premier League side yet to keep a clean sheet this season. Southampton and Aston Villa have the two worst defensive records in the Premier League and have already conceded a combined 98 league goals this season. Over 2.5 match goals seem a near-certainty at 8/13, you may also be tempted by the 6/4 on offer for over 3.5 match goals. 

Match odds

Southampton – 5/8 

Draw – 3/1 

Aston Villa – 4/1 

Leicester City vs Manchester City (5:30pm) 

Saturday’s late kick-off will see third host second with Leicester City and Manchester City set to meet at the King Power Stadium. Leicester City’s form has dipped slightly in recent weeks with the Foxes winning just two of their past five league games. Their loss of form has coincided with a goal-scoring drought for top scorer, Jamie Vardy. Vardy remains the league’s top scorer with 17 goals but he’s failed to find the back of the net in any of his last six matches. However, with five goals in his last seven games against Manchester City, Vardy may halt that barren run on Saturday. The 33-year old can be backed to score first at 9/2 or 6/5 to score at any time. 

Sergio Aguero is breathing down Vardy’s neck in the race for the Golden Boot. City’s all-time top scorer is now just one goal shy of Vardy with 16 Premier League goals. However, with a Champions League clash with Real Madrid on the horizon, Pep Guardiola could opt to rest his top scorer. Gabriel Jesus is a more than able deputy for Aguero and the Brazilian has scored in all three matches he’s started against Leicester City. At 20/21 to score at any time, Jesus could be one of the best bets of the weekend. 

Match odds 

Leicester City – 7/2 

Draw – 16/5 

Manchester City – 4/6 

Sunday 23rd February 

Manchester United vs Watford (2:00pm) 

Manchester United’s midweek win away at Chelsea has catapulted them right back into contention for a top-four finish. The Red Devils are just three points adrift of Chelsea and welcome struggling Watford to Old Trafford on Sunday. 

United’s hopes of Champions League qualification were rocked by a long-term injury to top scorer, Marcus Rashford. However, without Rashford in attack, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has opted to shore up his defence, switching to a five-man backline. Manchester United are yet to concede a league goal at Old Trafford in 2020. Our suggested bet is Manchester United to win to nil at 7/5. 

Odion Ighalo was brought in on loan in January to bolster United’s depleted attack and the ex-Hornet will be in line to start against his former club. The Nigerian international scored 36 goals in 90 league games for Watford and can be backed at 8/5 to score at any time on Sunday. 

Match odds 

Manchester United – 4/7 

Draw – 14/5 

Watford – 5/1 

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Norwich City (2:00pm) 

Wolves warmed up for the visit of the Premier League’s bottom club, Norwich City, with a comprehensive 4-0 Europa League win against the team rock bottom of La Liga, Espanyol. Nuno Espirito Santo’s team have quietly crept up the Premier League table and are now just five points off Chelsea in fourth. 

Wolves are however winless in three league games and have drawn 0-0 in their last two. It's more than four years since West Ham United became the last Premier League team to record three consecutive goalless draws. 

When you’re struggling for goals in the league, a home game against Norwich City is just the ticket. The Canaries are hemorrhaging goals, conceding 48 in the league already this season. They also boast the league’s worst away record, winning just once. 

DIogo Jota fired a Europa League hat-trick against Espanyol, taking his tally in Europe to nine goals for the season. However, the Portuguese international has managed just three Premier League goals so far. Domestically, Raul Jimenez remains Wolves’ main goal threat. Jimenez has eleven league goals for the season and can be backed to score first at 3/1. Alternatively, Raul Jimenez is 9/2 to score two or more.

Match odds 

Wolverhampton Wanderers – 8/15 

Draw – 3/1 

Norwich City – 11/2 

Arsenal vs Everton (4:30pm) 

At the beginning of the season, not many would’ve predicted Arsenal versus Everton to be a mid-table clash in February. Both clubs were expected to challenge for the top four but a poor start to the campaign led to both clubs making a managerial change. Carlo Ancelotti was linked to Arsenal before making the move to Everton whilst the new Gunners boss is former Everton midfielder, Mikel Arteta. 

Since their respective new managers took charge both Arsenal and Everton have enjoyed an upturn in fortunes. Arsenal are now on a season’s best run unbeaten run of six league games whilst Everton have lost just once in their past eleven league games. 

Arsenal and league leaders, Liverpool, are the only two Premier League sides yet to suffer a loss in the league in 2020 whilst only Liverpool have earned more points than Everton in the last eleven matches. 

Arsenal are looking for a third consecutive clean sheet in the Premier League for the first time since November 2017 but we’re expecting goals at the Emirates. Everton have scored in every single Premier League game since these sides played out a goalless draw at Goodison Park in December but they have kept just two clean sheets in that time. Both teams to score is available at 4/7. Arsenal have won on each of the past five occasions that they have hosted Everton, you can back Arsenal to win and both teams to score at 5/2. 

Match odds 

Arsenal – 21/20 

Draw – 5/2 

Everton – 5/2 

Monday 24th February 

Liverpool vs West Ham United (8:00pm) 

We are running out of superlatives to describe Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool and it’s now a matter of when and not if the Reds claim a first league title in 30 years. Liverpool have been handed a blow by the news that captain, Jordan Henderson will miss the next three weeks through injury but they should have no problem defeating a West Ham side deep in relegation trouble. 

Liverpool are 22 points clear of Manchester City in the Premier League table and will need to win no more than five of their remaining 12 matches. Anfield has become a fortress for Klopp’s side, winning every single home league this season. 

In contrast, West Ham United are languishing in the bottom three having won just six games all season. The Hammers are without a win since New Year’s Day, losing four and drawing two of their six subsequent matches. 

With Sadio Mane fighting fit, Liverpool’s three key attacking players are all set to start on Monday evening. Therefore, Liverpool to win with over 3.5 match goals at 21/20 could prove popular against a team that have conceded 45 times in the league this season. 

Match odds 

Liverpool – 2/13

Draw – 7/1 

West Ham United – 14/1
