Betting Tips

QPR v Liverpool Match Facts and Prediction

Attacking Soccer at related • 0 views

There's talk of a crisis at Anfield but Brendan Rodgers seems happy enough to progress slowly through the Premier League stages but their fans may not have the patience for that following their second placing last season.

And Harry Redknapp also has worries about his position following a torrid start to the season and a defence which makes Manchester United look like the Milan side of the late 80's early 90's.

Newcastle v Leicester Match Facts and Predictions

Attacking Soccer at related • 0 views

Every week I've been predicting a Newcastle defeat and the dismissal of Alan Pardew of the Magpies and yet he's still knocking about and though I do believe the Toon Army will again call for the Silver Foxes dismissal it may take another week for that defeat to put the final nail in his coffin!

Everton v Aston Villa Match Facts and Predictions

Attacking Soccer at related • 1 view

Aston Villa visit Goodison Park on the back of three consecutive defeats and Paul Lambert and Rot Keane will no doubt have been working on shoring up there defence during the International break while Everton haven't had the best of starts to the season either with Roberto Martinez's honeymoon period well and truly over and another defeat for either of these two sides tomorrow will have alarm bells ringing both from Liverpool to Birmingham!

Crystal Palace v Chelsea Match Facts and Predictions

Attacking Soccer at related • 1 view

I'm sure Jose Mourinho will remind his troops of the defeat to the opposition last season at Selhurst Park and with the Premier League's leading scorer Diego Costa and leading playmaker Cesc Fabregas two major changes from last season's Chelsea, the League leaders should account for Neil Warnocks up and down Crystal Palace side!

Burnley v West Ham Match Facts and Predictions

Attacking Soccer at related • 1 view

Burnley may have to wait a little longer for their first win of the season with in-form West Ham the visitors to Turf Moor tomorrow and while Burnley have struggled in-front of goal the visitors have flourished in-front of goal and can continue that trend tomorrow!

Prediction:

West Ham Win.

Hull v Manchester City Match Facts and Predictions

Attacking Soccer at related • 0 views

Manchester City will be smarting from their 1-1 draw last week and having banged home seven goals without reply against Sheffield Wednesday in midweek Hull's defence will be on red alert and if not they should be!

Hull haven't been shy of goals themselves scoring in all 9 competitive games thus far this season but they haven't come up against a defence like City quite yet!

Crystal Palace v Leicester Match Facts and Predictions

Attacking Soccer at related • 0 views

If the past few games these two have been involved in is anything to go by we could be in for a goalfest.

New boy's Leicester are coming of three fantastic results including their epic 5-3 win against Manchester United last week and confidence will be sky high which could be a major problem for Neil Warnock who's still trying to find his feet upon his return to Selhurst Park.

Chelsea v Aston Villa Match Facts and Predictions

Attacking Soccer at related • 0 views

Chelsea's 100% record was halted last week against 10 man Manchester City and former Chelsea legend Frank Lampard who scored the equalizer at the Etihad last week while Aston Villa were beaten following six minutes of madness against Arsenal as they conceded all three in that time allotment.

Southampton v QPR Match Facts and Predictions

Attacking Soccer at related • 0 views

Harry Redknapp probably sat down with the fixture list when they were released and ear marked this one down as an away game which they could get a positive result from given the Southampton exodus in the Summer, however given the start Southampton have had under Ronald Koeman that may have been an oversight as the Dutchman has put his more experienced Countryman in the Premier League firmly in the shadows.

Manchester United v West Ham Match Facts and Predictions

Attacking Soccer at related • 0 views

Given the imbalance at Old Trafford between defence and attack at the moment this one could go anyway at any score and West Ham will be looking to add another scalp to their name having beaten Liverpool 3-1 last weekend!

PREDICTION:

LVG can't afford to drop anymore points with the media vultures ready and waiting and despite West Ham's stunning win against Liverpool last week I think Manchester United should have enough even in defence to see off the Hammers tomorrow and my bet of the day at Old Trafford is Manchester United to win and both teams to score at 6/4!

Arsenal v Tottenham Match Facts and Predictions

Attacking Soccer at related • 2 views

Despite Arsenal occupying fourth spot after 5 games they have been far from impressive with last weeks 3-0 win over Aston Villa coming in a six minute blitz and their North London rivals have faired no better with defeat against West Brom last week serving up proof of their lack of consistency so long a trait accompanying many a Spurs team in the Premier League era.

Sunderland v Swansea Match Facts and Prediction

Attacking Soccer at related • 0 views

Having started the season with three wins from three, Swansea seem to have hit a block wall with two defeats in their last two Premier League games against Chelsea and Southampton respectively, while Sunderland have been as indifferent as they were last year with four draws and a loss to QPR to their name thus far.

Merseyside Derby Liverpool v Everton Match Facts and Predictions

Attacking Soccer at related • 0 views

Neither of these two side's will be happy with their starts to the season with Liverpool having already lost 3 of their 5 games, while Everton have only managed 1 win in their 5 openers!

However this is a Merseyside derby and as per usual both sides will be all fired up for this one with both sides needing all 3 points as not to be disappointed come May!

Stoke v Leicester Pre-Match Facts and Predictions

Attacking Soccer at related • 0 views

Stoke will come into this game with maximum confidence having accounted for Manchester City at the Etihad when last they togged out and given the Brittania has been somewhat of a fortress over the past few season's the visit of Leicester should hold know fears for the homeside!

Prediction:

The 11/10 on offer for a home win looks incredibly generous and I for one will be taking it with a small wager!

Southampton v Newcastle Pre-Match Facts and Predictions

Attacking Soccer at related • 0 views

Poor old Alan Pardew is under enough pressure as it is without having to visit a Southampton team who have an exemplary record against Newcastle with another Saints victory surely putting the final nail in Alan Pardews coffin with the fans already turning on him as it is!

Crystal Palace v Burnley Pre-Match Facts and Predictions

Attacking Soccer at related • 0 views

This tie has already taken the six pointer tag even at this early stage as both teams prop up the table with a point a piece!

However Sean Dyche's troops have had a tough return to the top-flight with losses against Chelsea and Swansea before deservingly grabbing a point at home to Manchester United before the International break kicked-in.

Chelsea v Swansea Pre-Match Facts and Predictions

Attacking Soccer at related • 0 views

Who would have thought these two would top the Premier League even at this early stage?

Well I bet none? Yes Chelsea would have been on many lists but not Swansea who will fear no-one having already taken three points from Old Trafford regardless of all the hype of their new manager Louis Van Gaal, Garry Monk showed he's a dab hand when it comes to setting up teams for wins also!

Arsenal v Manchester City Pre-Match Facts and Predictions

Attacking Soccer at related • 0 views

Champions Manchester City will travel to the Emirates tomorrow looking to bounce back from their shock defeat at home to Stoke just before the International break.

However Arsenal will be in confident mood having thrashed City at Wembley 3-0 just last month, despite that the Gunner's having really kicked on from that success but Arsene Wenger as always at the Emirates will be confident his side can continue their fine form over the visitors.

Tottenham v Liverpool Pre Match Facts and Prediction

Attacking Soccer at related • 0 views

Tottenham fans have had so many false dawns it's been hard to count over the years, however new manager Mauricio Pochettino could change all that as he quietly goes about his business much like he did at Southampton where he had relatively good results while also producing some great football.

Manchester City v Stoke Pre-Match Facts and Prediction

Attacking Soccer at related • 0 views

Manchester City should make it three wins from three tomorrow as they take on an out of sorts Stoke tomorrow at the Etihad with the homeside looking as strong as ever to retain their Premier League crown for the first time in their history.

Betting Prediction:

A home win at 1/5 is not really the value bet I go for unless it's an accumulator so for value purposes I'd go for over three bookings tomorrow at 7/4 with Paddy Power especially given Stoke's physical game!

Burnley v Manchester United Pre-Match Facts and Prediction

Attacking Soccer at related • 1 view

Manchester United will be the visitors at Turf Moor in the Premier League's early game which is due to kick-off at 12:45.

Bothe Burnley and Manchester United are still looking for their first League win of the season with both teams having lost to Swansea United in their opener and Burnley last week something has to give?

Champions League: Arsenal v Besiktas Pre-Match Facts and Prediction

Attacking Soccer at related • 0 views

Arsenal's Champions League experience should be enough to see them safely through to the Group stages, however with the absence of Aaron Ramsey in centre midfield the Turkish side managed by mad-cap former Croatian manager Slaven Bilic have a fair chance of upsetting the odds at the Emirates tonight and wouldn't it be ironic if one time transfer target Demba Ba was to score the goal to send Besiktas through?

Manchester City v Liverpool Match Facts and Prediction!

Attacking Soccer at related • 0 views

It's probably a bit early to be calling this a title decider however given how closely Liverpool ran Manchester City to the title last season it takes on the magical 6 pointer conundrum.

Add in the return to the Premier League of former City striker Mario Balotelli whom won't play to-night for Liverpool and a little bit of spice could be added to a clash which is normally fiercely contested.

Crystal Palace v West Ham Pre-Match Facts and Predictions

Attacking Soccer at related • 0 views

Tony Pulis would have been proud of his former sides performance last week against Arsenal despite going down 2-1 with just a few minutes left on the clock while todays opponents West Ham were also denied a share of the spoils against Tottenham in the final moments last week!

BETTING PREDICTION:

Can't see past the draw @2/1 in this one with both sides equally matched by spirit and battling prowess!

Southampton v West Brom Pre-Match Facts and Predictions

Attacking Soccer at related • 0 views

West Brom could only muster a 2-2 draw with Sunderland last week while Southampton could easily have snatched the same result last week had Shane Long been more clinical infront of goal!

BETTING PREDITION:

A tentative pick would be a home win here and Shane Long to score @5/2.

Chelsea v Leicester City Pre-Match Facts and Predictions

Attacking Soccer at related • 0 views

Chelsea's first-half demolision of Burnley last week was probably the best we've seen from them since the "Special One's" return to the Chelsea fold and a repeat performance should be more than enough to despatch of another newcomer Leicester who themselves got a creditable draw with Everton in their opener!

Swansea v Burnley Pre-Match Facts and Predictions

Attacking Soccer at related • 0 views

Swansea will no doubt be buzzing having beaten Manchester United 2-1 at Old Trafford in last weeks opener while Burnley will be hoping to avoid a repeat performance of their first half against Chelsea in their opener in which Burnley could have been licking their wounds had Chelsea not taken their foot off the throttle for the second half!

Everton v Arsenal Pre-Match Facts and Predictions

Attacking Soccer at related • 0 views

Arsenal laboured to a 2-1 win against managerless Crystal Palace last week, however a repeat performance this evening against Everton at Goodison could see a repeat of their 3-0 drubbing at the hands of the Toffeemen last season.

Having seen both in action last week in which neither were convincing, it's fair to say they both need to up their games if they want to make the Top 4 come the end of the season and given Arsenal's performance last week it has done nothing too suggest they can overturn a three goal deficit from last season so I'm going for an Everton win @17/10.

The Rest

Groan’s season preview – 2013/14 – optimism aplenty

The Beautiful Groan at related • 0 views

A little late in the day, as the season has technically started, but I'm back with a few predictions for the season ahead who will shine, who will step up, and how it will all go. Like many, I'm optimistic about Arsenal's chances this season the difference between now and a year ago, when we entered into the season under a cloud (that grew poisonous in our defeat to Villa), is remarkable we've been efficient in the market, signed some genuinely excellent players, and while there is still work to do, the signs are overwhelminglypositive.
