I mention the Premier League but the same principles would apply to most leagues. Once into August, most serious football pundits and punters will have framed their shortlist of teams that could win the Premier League, finish in the top 4 or 6, or be fighting a relegation battle.That process can’t be finalised in June or July but some preparation must (even subconsciously) go into it long before coming to any conclusions. How they go about it will vary from... [ Read More ]

Man Utd vs Chelsea - Preview and Tips from a Man Utd Fan

 Last updated Nov 15, 12:13pm     garethp1981 on Premier League    0 Comments    1277 Views

Match Preview Both teams come into this game after midweek draws in the Champions’ League; Chelsea managed an admirable draw against Barcelona whereas United drew in Sevilla. On the face of things Chelsea probably got the best result although with a home side against a lesser side, United probably have the better chance of getting through to the quarters. Nether team has a perfect record in terms of recent Premier League recently, both having lost two of their last three.... [ Read More ]

LEICESTER V Bournemouth. Premier League January 2nd.

 Last updated Nov 15, 11:59am     davidg3907 on Premier League    0 Comments    1167 Views

LEICESTER CITY v BOURNEMOUTH The last 6 fixtures of 2015 were deemed to be a very difficult set for Leicester. Trips to both Merseyside clubs as well as Swansea, along with hosting Chelsea and the two Manchester clubs at the King Power, Leicester emerged with 11 points from a possible 18. Bournemouth's return to form has seen them pick up the same number of points in that period, with only Arsenal and Watford (13 each), Crystal Palace (12), Tottenham (11),... [ Read More ]

Tottenham v LEICESTER. Preview and tips.

Tottenham v LEICESTER CITY Two seasons ago, a slightly unlucky defeat against Tottenham in the league match at the King Power was followed by a City win at White Hart Lane in the cup, and a thrilling 4-3 league defeat at WHL, with Leicester finding the goal scoring touch that may ultimately have proved the catalyst to them staying up. Leicester's win in the corresponding match last season helped to put distance between the clubs in the table; a gap... [ Read More ]

Betting tips and preview as Swansea hosts Liverpool

Picked out my third consecutive winning bet last weekend as Fernando Llorente scored his first goal in Swansea colors and the team is also streaking, but sadly it's a negative streak. A 3-1 loss to Man City means there have been no win in the last five league outings with only one point picked up during that stretch. A total of only 4 points leaves the side dangerously close to the relegation zone. Manager Francesco Guidolin looks like a dead... [ Read More ]

LEICESTER CITY v SOUTHAMPTON Two seasons ago, Leicester were just getting their great escape under way, with Southampton having little to play for. Last season, Leicester were marching towards the title; Southampton eyeing a European place. Prior to that, their profiles had been similar with both going into administration, and both being clubs that needed to sell players to balance the books, leading to convincing returns to this level. After a rather disappointing start in the league this season, Leicester... [ Read More ]

Betting preview and tips for Bradley's debut as Swans boss at the Emirates

 Last updated Nov 13, 7:24pm     Epic on Premier League    2 Comments    1004 Views

4 managers in 10 months. That's something very common in Italian football (shout-out to Palermo, who's had 8 managers in 2016 alone), but quite unusual for Premier League sides. Yet Swansea City has managed exactly that. In less than a year, we have gone from Garry Monk and a stable, bright future, to Alan Curtis, Francesco Guidolin and now Bob Bradley. Guidolin was sacked at the start of October, even though the last two games brought some of the best... [ Read More ]

Chelsea v LEICESTER Preview and betting tips

Chelsea v LEICESTER CITY This is a match full of possibilities, with sub-plots and hidden agendas bubbling under the surface. Jose Mourinho lost his position at Chelsea when they lost at Leicester last December, and some money seems to say that Antonio Conte could be facing a similar fate should his side suffer a similar fate. Leicester's new love adventure with the Champions' League has seen the club have mixed results on the pitch; maybe or maybe not as a... [ Read More ]

Leicester may put Palace to the sword. Preview and betting tips

LEICESTER CITY v CRYSTAL PALACE The corresponding match last season saw Leicester keep the first of what became customary clean sheets. Things have not quite been the same this season, but have won all three Champions' League matches to nil, while the only goal conceded in 6 matches at home was a consolation for Swansea on a heavily rain-affected pitch. Team selection has been at the back of this to some extent, with a desire to keep an unchanged side... [ Read More ]
