"Two teams in direct survival battle for their Premier League status. Both will feel they need to get 3 points from this game. Even if there's a cagey slow start I think it should become an open very entertaining game today at Villa Park and we will see goals from both sides."
Liverpool v Sunderland
Yes (Both Teams to Score) (BTTS)
"Liverpool has to bounce back from that 2-0 away defeat at Leicester and I expect them to have a good go against lowly Sunderland.
But I fancy Sunderland will be well up for this, they can feel that Liverpool has problems and I think they'll think that Liverpool is there for the taking today.
Sunderland is desperate for points and I think they'll take the positives from their 0-1 defeat against Man City last time out, and they can at least score today."
Liverpool v Sunderland
"I can't trust Liverpool on current form @1.5 to get the win against a desperate and dangerous Sunderland.
Last time out Liverpool lost at Leicester 2-0, I had backed Leicester more on the bases that I didn't think Liverpool could get a positive outcome rather than Leicester's form.
Similarly today I think that with Liverpool's problems and Sunderland's desperation and also in the battle of the managers, I think Big Sam has the upper hand in this league against Klopp; I'm taking a punt for a big profit @8 on the away win."
Man City v Leicester
Yes (Both Teams to Score) (BTTS)
"This has the makings of a classic! OK there's a chance that Man City run away with it, but I think Leicester will have a good go and try to produce another amazing performance and an upset, so I see both teams scoring in a high octane encounter at the top op the table."
Newcastle v West Brom
"Newcastle are in trouble in the relegation zone and they should have this game as a must win against a team like West Brom at home.
Newcastle have defensive problems at the left-back position and might have to start with someone in this position from the U-21 squad. Having said that I still think that this is a game which Newcastle has to win and they can win.
West Brom has not won in their last 6 away games. Their last away win was in October at Norwich 0-1.
Newcastle beat West Ham 2-1 at home in January and drew 3-3 with Man Utd."
Stoke v Everton
"10th Stoke against 11th Everton! only one point separate the teams but the goal deference is clearly in Everton's favor with a +13 swing, so I think most probably Everton will finish the season higher than Stoke.
Having said that Stoke need's to steady the ship after consecutive 3-0 away defeats at the hands of Man U and Leicester. Coming back at the Britannia Stadium must spur the team to produce a good performance against an Everton team that has only won 3 of their away games this season in the league drawing 7 and losing 1."
Swansea v Crystal Palace
"I think if there's a winner at the end will most probably be Swansea, but I'm going for the draw here. Mainly because Palace's streak of 5 defeats will come to an end sooner rather than later. Palace hasn't scored in their last 3 away league games but I think they'll score today, they have to tighten their defence and given that Swansea only scores an average of 1.00 goal at home I think Palace will stop their league loosing run here."
Tottenham v Watford
"Tottenham is on fire at the moment! they've won their last three league games and in total they scored 10 and conceded 2 goals!
Watford have two great results back to back of their own, first beating 2-1 Newcastle and then 0-0 against Chelsea but both at home.
Today Watford visiting White Hart Lane and I think they'll have very hard time keeping the ball and so I think Spurs will have the vast majority of the possession and will create enough chances to score goals and get the win."
30 January 2016
Liverpool v West Ham
"West Ham have beaten Liverpool two times earlier in the season 2-0 at home and 0-3 away! so they will have confidence on their side today and @4 its definitely worth a bet to do it again and produce the treble over Liverpool.
Slaven Bilic is a manager I trust and I think he will have West Ham ready to beat the bookies this evening."
Reading v Walsall
"Even though the Championship side reading is a league above League One Walsall there are only 11 places between them.
Walsall is a team that's used to winning this season so they will have a confident performance. Reading have only won 3 of their last 13 games in all competitions.
I think @4.75 the away win has good value in this FA Cup game."
Rotherham v Charlton
"Rotherham is just out of the relegation spots with just 4 points more than Charlton who are 2nd from bottom. So this is a huge game in the relegation battle and one which I think Rotherham's home advantage must help the home team to a win.
Rotherham have a good home record, they have won their last 4 of 5 home games including 4 clean sheets and scored 2 or more in those 4 wins.
Charlton's last 5 away show 1 draw (1-1) and 4 defeats; those 4 defeats where 3-2, 4-0, 5-0 and 6-0.
Rotherham at home they've scored 21 and conceded 23 goals. Charlton away scored 7 and conceded 32.
Rotherham beat at home two other relegation candidates Bristol City 3-0 and Bolton 4-0. They've even beat current league leaders Hull 2-0 in December.
Rotherham's home advantage to be the telling factor in this one."
