t’s that time of the week again. Time to start preparing your betting slips for another epic weekend of Premier League football.
Thomas of Footballtips.com gives us three essential bets.
Before the tips, let’s just have a quick word on the Champions League and the criticism directed at Arsenal. Let’s be honest, they came up against a European super power and their players are shattered.
It baffled me how Arsene Wenger didn’t get a striker in January and from the moment Mesut Ozil had his penalty saved on Wednesday – it was game over. That was their chance.
In defence of the Gunners though, they are playing their part in one of the best Premier League title races in years. They are tired, because they play in the most entertaining and competitive league in the World.
Bayern are 16 points clear at the top of the Bundesliga and coasting. I think it’s fair to say, as English football fans, we’d rather have a competitive league than one team running away with it.
Until there’s a winter break, this could cost us having a Champions League winner, or at least a team as good and dominant as Bayern. If that’s the case – so be it!
Anyway, onto the tips…
Eden Hazard to score first
What a player Eden Hazard is. The best youngster in the World according to Jose Mourinho and just like a broken clock is right twice a day – you can’t argue with the Special One here.
I had the privilege of being invited to go and watch a game at Stamford Bridge recently and Hazard was a different class. Everything is effortless and he will go on to become one of the best ever.
As a result, he’s a good shout for first goalscorer this weekend. Chelsea host Everton and you can back him at 6/1 with Coral. He lacks a top striker to provide, so looks set to do it all himself!
Wayne Rooney to score twice or more
Wayne Rooney has signed a new contract at Manchester United and although the weekly wage is a massive £300,000 – you can’t argue with it. Think the Champions are struggling now? Take Rooney out of it and it would only get worse.
With Rooney on board, United can build with David Moyes, both in the short-term and the long-term. Immediately, it should get the team and Rooney himself a lift ahead of the trip to Palace.
It will be a tough evening for the Red Devils at Selhurst Park, but Rooney will celebrate in some style, bagging his first goals since returning from injury.
You can back Rooney to score twice or more at a very generous 7/1 with Paddy Power
Man City, Chelsea and Arsenal to win
Lastly, it’s worth pointing out an excellent enhanced treble at 188BET. You can get full details of this offer here, but essentially you get 2/1 for Man City, Chelsea and Arsenal to win on Saturday.
All you have to do is sign up to 188BET and boom – you have yourself a banker for this weekend.
While Man City are at home to Stoke, Arsenal take on Sunderland and Chelsea – with a fantastic home record – take on Everton at Stamford Bridge.
It’s definitely worth a few quid!
Have a great weekend everyone.
