EPL 2019-20: Matchday 22 Preview & Betting Tips

January 11th 2020, 10:24am, By: SundayLeagueShark

EPL Week 22 offers some great games and as we head into the back half of the season, Liverpool continue to stretch out their dominant lead atop the table. Can they be caught? They face another big six club this weekend as they travel to Tottenham on Sunday morning.

As usual, we have a full preview and betting tips for some of the key games of the weekend below!

EPL Week 22 Betting Tips

Crystal Palace vs Arsenal (Saturday 11.30pm AEDT)

Palace have had a pretty strong year to date, currently sitting in 9th place on the EPL table with a 7-7-7 record. They are coming off a three game unbeaten stretch which saw them beat West Ham 2-1 at home before securing a 1-1 draw on the road to both Southampton and Norwich City.

They’ll be back at home this weekend against Arsenal, where they have a 4-3-3 record this season, while the Gunners have been pretty deplorable on the road by their standards at just 2-5-3. Arsenal have had a season to forget, but seem to have found some form on Matchday 21 when they defeated Manchester United at home 2-0.

Palace are no doubt an underrated team this season and we think there is real value on them to pinch at least one point at home. Arsenal have been on the road 10 times this season and have allowed a point on eight occasions.

Chelsea vs Burnley (Sunday 2am AEDT)

To say Chelsea’s season so far has been inconsistent would be an understatement. Over their last eight Premier League games, they have managed to pick up three points in alternating weeks. The results of those games read WLWLWLWD, so it’s safe to say they could be in line for another win at home against Burnley this weekend.

Burnley have won seven games this season, which is right around the mark we predicted them for in the pre-season, however, just two of those wins have come on the road. They have a 2-3-5 record away from Turf Moor this season and their 34 goals allowed this season is the fourth most in the league behind only Nowich, Southampton and Aston Villa.

We think the Blues will win this game, but Burnley should be able to find the back of the net. Chelsea have managed to keep a clean sheet in just four of their 21 games this season, which has them ranked in 15th place in the league.

Tottenham vs Liverpool (Sunday 4.30am AEDT)

Liverpool is in the midst of the most dominant EPL season in history. Amazingly, through 20 games, they have failed to secure maximum points on just one occasion, which was a draw with Manchester United all the way back in Week 9. They scored 49 goals and allowed just 14 to boast a league best goal difference of +35.

Tottenham are another big six club that have had a season to forget so far. They currently sit in sixth place with an 8-6-7 record, and are coming off a two week stretch that saw them draw with bottom of the table Norwich and lose to 12th placed Southampton.

Liverpool went through a stretch early in the season where they were allowing a goal in nearly every fixture, however, over their last seven games in all competitions, they have secured a clean sheet victory. They will be too good for Tottenham here and we expect them to extend that streak.
