But onto this weekend’s Premier League action, and the big game of the weekend is the Saturday tea-time clash between Manchester City and Spurs. We’ve a tip for that match, and tips for Crystal Palace vs Everton and Stoke vs Manchester United.
Crystal Palace vs Everton (3.00 Saturday)
The last 3 renewals haven’t produced many goals as they’ve finished 0-0, 0-1 and 0-0, but there’s little in either Palace’s or Everton’s recent form suggesting this is going to be a low-scoring affair. Indeed, Everton will be hoping that they can repeat their win of two-years ago after 3 victories in their last 4 games, including 4-0 and 3-0 victories over Southampton. Meanwhile, Crystal Palace have won just 1 of their last 7 Premier League home games. Okay, so three of those were against Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United, but they’ve also lost to Swansea and West Ham – and they may find Everton too hot to handle in their present from.
Stoke vs Manchester United (Saturday 3.00)
There’s no doubt Manchester United have hit form recently, and they’ve won their last 3 away games. However, Stoke have been playing pretty decently too with 2 wins and 2 draws in their last four home games, and they held United to a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford earlier in the season. The last 6 renewals also suggest this could be tougher for United than the odds suggest, as they’ve won just two of them. Therefore, the 16/5 for a draw looks a value-bet.

Manchester City vs Spurs (5.30 Saturday)
Man City may be a more high-profile side than Spurs, but there’s some compelling evidence to suggest quotes of 11/10 are way too short for them to beat an in-form Spurs side that sits 3 points and 3 places above them in the Premier League Table. Firstly, Spurs beat them 2-0 earlier in the season, which was their third win in succession against City, including a 2-1 win at the Etihaad last season, though, admittedly, City had won the previous 5 renewals. Secondly, this isn’t the first time that Spurs have enjoyed a dominant spell over City in recent years, as they also won all four games in the 2008/9 and 2009/10 seasons, and won 8 games on the bounce against them starting in 2004. Therefore, the 11/4 for them to make it four wins in a row is far too big to resist.
