Football Betting Tips: 26th & 27th October
by David Lenton
We booked a £21.00 profit in the Champions League this week and some late drama in the Europa League lead to another £45.00 profit.
After a small win last weekend as well I’d say we’re rocking at the minute!
For this weekends football tips, I am going to back a number of different games across both days of action, and there are some intriguing games to look forward to including Chelsea’s tricky trip to Burnley on Saturday and the Arsenal v Crystal Palace London derby on Sunday, while Manchester United will be hoping their away form can improve as they face Norwich at Carrow Road.
Here’s my selections for the games this weekend in the Premier League.
Football Tips: Saturday 26th October

A 2-1 defeat last week at Aston Villa leaves Brighton 16th in the EPL table.
Everton’s 2-0 win over West am moved them up to 13th in the table.
The teams have only met 15 times in total, Everton winning 7, Brighton 3 with 5 draws.
Everton lost 1-0 in this fixture last season, but won the game at Goodison 3-1.
I think last weekend’s results have left this game as one of the more tricky to predict. Brighton were unfortunate to lose to a very late Matt Targett goal at Aston Villa, despite playing with 10 men for a large part of the game, but Everton were excellent in defeating West Ham 2-0 at Goodison Park.
However, of the two teams, I think Brighton have been the more consistent, if not with results then in terms of performances and I don’t feel that one swallow makes a summer for Everton, and this long away trip is going to be a tough examination for them.
Marco Silva’s team were much better at home to West Ham but in truth, they could not have played any worse than they have in previous games and I am not convinced this is a signal that they are about to go on a strong run of performances. As such, I am backing my instinct more here than perhaps recent form and taking the Seagulls to land the home win and claim the points, though I do feel this year’s game will see more goals, at both ends, than last year’s fixture, which finished 1-0 to the home team.

A 2-1 defeat at Leicester means Burnley dropped to 8th in the table last weekend.
Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Newcastle saw them move into 4th in the Premier League.
Burnley have won just one of the last 10 games, Chelsea winning six.
Chelsea won 4-0 at Turf Moor last season but were held 2-2 at Stamford Bridge.
I must admit to being a little surprised that Chelsea didn’t manage to land a few more goals in defeating Newcastle last weekend. Steve Bruce’s team put in a dogged performance to keep Chelsea to just the one goal and although they did win, Frank Lampard will know his team need to perform better, especially at home.
Burnley were narrowly beaten away to Leicester despite taking the lead in the game. The Clarets put in another very solid display and perhaps against a lesser team, may have earned a draw for their efforts. I feel though they could also face something of a struggle this week against a Chelsea side that I feel are best set up to play on the counter.
I am not surprised Chelsea’s best performances this season have come on the road where their pace on the counter is more effective against teams coming at them. As such, I am backing them to record another win here on a ground where teams do tend to find things tough. I do feel Burnley are good enough to grab at least one goal against this leaky Chelsea defence however.

Liverpool’s 100% winning record was ended at Old Trafford in a 1-1 draw with Man Utd.
Tottenham were held disappointingly at home 1-1 by Watford. They are 7th in the table.
Spurs conceded a late own goal winner here last season to hand Liverpool a 2-1 victory.
Spurs have won one of the last 15 games between the teams. Liverpool have 10 wins.
Liverpool’s lacklustre recent performances continued somewhat last week at Old Trafford where the Reds dropped points for the first time this season in the EPL in a 1-1 draw. However, the way they ended that game, on top and pushing hard to win will have pleased Jurgen Klopp.
Tottenham’s draw with Watford will have been a frustration for manager Maurico Pochettino and his team come into this game in poor form on the road and seeking revenge for the Champions League final defeat inflicted by Liverpool back in early June.
However, Spurs form at the moment is so poor and lacking confidence that it is hard to see them getting anything from a game at Anfield, where Liverpool are unbeaten in the last 42 Premier League games. Although with Liverpool’s defence a little shaky at times, I can see Spurs finding the net at Anfield as they have done in most recent games between the teams.
I still feel Liverpool should do enough to claim the win here most likely by a 2-1 or 3-1 scoreline.

Norwich kept a clean sheet in a rare 0-0 draw away to Bournemouth. They remain 19th.
Manchester United earned a 1-1 draw at home to Liverpool but remain in 13th in the table.
Manchester United have not won an away game since beating PSG in Paris in March.
Norwich have won 3 of the last 21 between the teams. United winning 17 in that time.
After both teams earned creditable draws last weekend, both managers will feel that their teams proved a point, without being rewarded with a win last weekend. Norwich’s new approach saw them earn a 0-0 draw at Bournemouth, while Man Utd played well to hold Liverpool to a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.
United’s worrying away form will be tested at Carrow Road against a Norwich side who have beaten Manchester City here this season, but who have also lost 5-1 to Aston Villa in front of their home fans. This Jekyll and Hyde consistency is a worry for Canaries fans, especially against the top sides.
United fans will be desperate to end that run of away games without a win and that draw with Liverpool is something to build on. With players coming back from injury too, I just feel United could be in with a chance of ending that run of poor results on the road here. I do see goals at both ends, but I feel United could just shade this one 2-1.
