Chelsea v Southampton Betting Tips
Southampton may have overcome a disappointing Terriers side in their last road game but David Wagner was without his star midfielder Aaron Mooy that day. In fact, the Saints lost six of their previous seven winless road games prior to that victory, including at Cardiff in Ralph Hasenhuttl’s first game in charge.
Chelsea will still be kicking themselves after they came away pointless when hosting the Foxes just before Christmas and they’ll want to give their West London fans a much better showing this time around. Indeed, they have won six of their other nine unbeaten games at Stamford Bridge this term, while against bottom-half sides here, they have won 20 of their last 24 outings since 2016/17.
Moreover, 11 of those victories were accompanied with a clean sheet and 15 were by more than a single strike, including all four this season.
West Ham v Brighton Betting Tips
The Hammers will want to get back to winning ways at the London Stadium after they were downed by Watford in their last appearance here. They had the majority of the possession that day, as well as 18 shots to their oppositions 11, and if it wasn’t for some wasteful finishing they would have come away with some points.
Manuel Pellegrini’s men did win four of their previous six games on home turf though with victories over Man Utd, Burnley, Cardiff and Palace as they scored at least three times in each of these, while only Spurs and Man City could defeat them. Moreover, the hosts are in a brilliant run of form after a slow start to the season and even with their long injury list they have been grinding out impressive results.
Brighton again this season seem to be struggling on the road as they have lost seven of their 10 matches away from home. Each of those outings where they picked up points came against all of; Southampton under Mark Hughes, a Newcastle side enduring a 10-game winless run (losing eight of them) and a woeful Terriers outfit. What’s more, they have lost both their last two trips without scoring with one of these at a Burnley side who had lost six of their previous seven winless matches.
Newcastle v Manchester United Betting Tips
Rafa Benitez still thinks his side will need a miracle if they are to stay up after a 4-0 embarrassment against league leaders Liverpool. This could well follow a similar path with the Red Devils having their tails up since the introduction of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Magpies put in a valiant effort when these two met in the reverse fixture earlier this season as they went 2-0 up only to disappointingly lose 3-2. So, against a Man Utd side in their current free flowing form, we don’t give them much hope.
Benitez’s men have lost each of their six encounters with ‘Big Six’ opposition so far this term while since 2012/13 they have won only one of their five meetings United here at St James’ Park, losing three of these. Moreover, the hosts have lost seven of their 10 matches here so far this term and with this being one of the stronger sides they’ll come up against, it should be routine victory for United.
