It’s great to have some midweek Premier League action this week. The highlight could be Wednesday’s match at Old Trafford and we’ve a free tip for Manchester United vs Arsenal. We’ve also got free tips for Tuesday’s matches between Bournemouth and Huddersfield and Brighton vs Crystal Palace, as well as Wednesday’s match between Wolves and Chelsea.
Bournemouth vs Huddersfield (Tuesday 7.45)
Backing a team at odds-on that has lost its last four matches may not be everyone’s idea of a good bet, but Bournemouth have not played like a team lacking in confidence in their last two matches against Arsenal and Manchester City. They may lack the class to be able to compete with the big Premier League teams but have shown they can beat anyone else, especially at home.
If they need a little more motivation to get back on the winning trail, they only need to look at last season’s 4-0 win in the corresponding fixture, despite having a player sent-off at the end of the first-half. Callum Wilson also bagged a hat-trick last season and looks a good bet to get on the scoresheet.

Brighton vs Crystal Palace (Tuesday 7.45)
It’s hard to see why the bookies are so keen to make Crystal Palace favourites for their trip to Brighton, where they drew 0-0 last season in the league and lost 2-1 in the FA Cup. It’s not like Palace have set the world alight recently. Admittedly, they managed to get a 0-0 draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford in their last away game, but they lost their previous four away games before that draw.
Brighton also come here fresh from an away win at Huddersfield and they’ve took seven-points from their last three home games. Brighton are also six-points and three-places above Crystal Palace in the table.

Wolves vs Chelsea (Wednesday 7.45)
Consecutive home defeats to Watford, Tottenham, and Huddersfield have seen Wolves tumble to twelfth place after a decent start to the season and, having scored more than once just three-times in the Premier League this season, they could be in trouble against a Chelsea side that have beaten Burnley, Southampton, Newcastle, and Huddersfield on their travels already, scoring between two and four goals in those games. I didn’t expect Chelsea to be any bigger than around 8/13, so anything around the 4/5 mark looks well worth taking.

Chelsea Win @ 1.84 Smarkets
Manchester United vs Arsenal (Wednesday 8.00)
Jose Mourinho seemed to have the knack of beating Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal, but it will be interesting to see if Mourinho can get the better of new Arsenal manager Unai Emery. Arsenal haven’t always managed to capitalise on their possession this season but, after fighting back to beat bitter London rivals Tottenham at weekend and leapfrogging them in the table, they’re bound to be full of self-belief for this trip to Old Trafford.
Arsenal look sure to go for goals and, as United’s suspect attack has failed to fire on too many occasions this season, it could be time for the Gunners to march on towards next year’s Champions League with another three-points in the bag.
