It's a great time of the year to be a sports fan, particularly a soccer fan, with so many games taking place during the month of December, especially in the English Premier League. We’ve been blessed with midweek action this week for Match Day 15, as all 20 teams are set to play in the early hours of Wednesday and Thursday morning (AEDT). As usual, we’ve got you covered with previews and betting tips for the value games of the round. Good luck to all following!
The first match we’ve taken an interest to is the Bournemouth vs Huddersfield Town fixture on Wednesday morning. After starting the season strongly, Bournemouth currently find themselves in a league worst four game losing streak. However, three of those losses have been handed out by Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal, while the other was on the road against an inform Newcastle United outfit. The Cherries currently sit in ninth position on 20 points.
Huddersfield Town returned to losing form last weekend, going down at home to Brighton and Hove. In the three games prior to that they had managed seven points, with wins over Fulham and Wolverhampton providing a glimmer of hope for the Terriers. After 14 league games they find themselves in 17th position and just one point above the drop zone.
Although the Cherries haven’t been winning lately, we do feel that they’ve put in decent shifts against the top tier teams. They’ll be looking forward to playing a weaker team this time out and we believe they can win this by multiple goals.
Another game we’ve found value in is Everton vs Newcastle United on Thursday morning. The Toffees were left with nothing but heartbreak in the Merseyside Derby last weekend. They put in an exceptional performance and could’ve easily gotten the three points on the day if a bit of luck was on their side. However, it wasn’t to be and they’ll have to shift their focus to this game, where they will enter as red-hot favourites. Everton currently sit in sixth position on 22 points.
Newcastle were also left with the feeling of disappointment in their last outing against the Hammers. Coming into the game on a three game win streak, Newcastle would’ve been devastated with the way they played in their 3-0 loss to West Ham. That loss leaves them in 15th and only two points out of the drop zone.
Much like the first game we previews, Everton will be licking their lips at the prospect of returning to Goodison Park in a game they have every chance of winning. We expect them to come out firing and get back on the winners list in emphatic fashion.
Last but not certainly not least we have the Manchester United vs Arsenal fixture on Thursday morning. United would love to be coming into this huge game in good form, but unfortunately for them that just isn’t the case. They’re winless in their last three Premier League games and simply don’t look like a team that’s going to compete for top four this season.
Meanwhile, Arsenal continue to impress and are coming off a thrilling 4-2 win against Tottenham in the derby. They’re now undefeated in an incredible 19 consecutive matches in all competitions, which has helped them climb up to fourth position in the standings and just one point behind Chelsea.
In what’s been labelled as the match of the round and quite rightly so, we expect Arsenal to continue their unbeaten. However, despite not being in the best of form, Old Trafford still is a very tough place to grab all three points. For this reason, we’ve gone with the Draw No Bet market for a bit of insurance.
