Football Betting Tips: 9th & 10th November
by David Lenton
Last weekends football tips and predictions managed a profit of £12.50 from £10 stakes. Not exactly a home run but still more profit collected at the expense of the bookmakers to add to the several weeks of profit I have racked up already this season.
So while we posted a profit last week, I wasn’t that happy with how much it was, so I am looking to get back to much more profit this weekend in what is going to be one of the most definitive of the season.
Not only do we see the bottom two, Watford and Norwich City, locking horns at Carrow Road on Friday night, we also have third placed Leicester taking on fifth placed Arsenal, Southampton and Everton, in 18th and 17th, also meeting and of course, we have the big game on Sunday as Liverpool take on Manchester City.
With so many key games, and close games, taking place this weekend I am hoping that this selection of tips lands us another bumper weekend at the expense of the bookmakers.
Football Tips: Saturday 26th October

November 9, 2019
Chelsea lie 4th in the table, Palace are currently 9th, 8 points behind.
Chelsea are the form team in the Premier League with five wins on the bounce.
Crystal Palace have not won in their last three games.
Palace have won just 4 of the last 24 games between the teams. Chelsea winning 16.
Chelsea are the form team in the Premier League over the last five games, winning them all since their defeat at home to Liverpool. Palace had started the season well but have not won in their last three and this looks like being a daunting trip to Stamford Bridge for Roy Hodgson’s team.
That said, Palace have won at the Etihad and Old Trafford in the past 12 months and they have also given Liverpool a real fright at Anfield. So this is by no means a straightforward win for Chelsea and I feel the Eagles will make things very difficult for them in this game.
Having conceded four to Ajax in midweek, Frank Lampard will know his leaky defence needs to improve and while I can see Palace perhaps stealing a goal in this one, I do feel Chelsea have enough quality going forward to ensure that they claim what would be another important victory in the Premier League.

Southampton lost their last home match in the league 9-0 to Leicester City.
Everton’s last Premier League away win was in April 2019 a 2-0 win over West Ham.
Southampton lie in 18th place, while Everton are three points ahead in 17th.
Southampton won this fixture last season 2-1 back in January 2019.
It’s hard to know what to make of these two teams at the moment. Southampton were humiliated at home by Leicester last time out at St Mary’s, going down to their biggest ever Premier League defeat, but they face an Everton side whose only wins on the road this season have come in the Carabao Cup against lower league opponents.
I also feel of the two teams, Southampton probably showed the greater character, narrowly going down to a 2-1 defeat away to Man City last weekend, than Everton did in their 1-1 draw with Spurs, which was a nervy and fractious game, punctuated by an awful injury to Andre Gomes, Everton’s ex-Barcelona midfielder.
While the bookies may feel an Everton win or a draw is the most likely outcome here, I disagree. I think Southampton will be heavily motivated to put that Leicester result behind them in front of their own fans here and I think Everton’s away form is such that I am backing the Saints to get back to winning ways here, likely with a 2-1 victory.

Leicester are third in the table, six points ahead of Arsenal who lie fifth.
Leicester have won both the last two at home to Arsenal, 3-1 and 3-0.
Despite that Arsenal have a great record against Leicester winning 10 of the last 16.
Jamie Vardy, the EPL top scorer with 10 goals, netted three times in Leicester’s two wins.
There’s no doubt for me that of these two teams, Leicester City have been by far and away the better and most consistent of the two this season. The Gunners may be the more familiar face at the top end of the Premier League, but I feel Brendan Rodgers is starting to build something very impressive at the King Power Stadium.
Jamie Vardy is back amongst the goals and with Ndidi and Tielemans providing perfect balance in midfield, plus the help of the advancing full backs, I can’t see any way that Arsenal have the defensive capability to stop the Foxes and come away from the game with anything.
The Gunners form has been poor of late and for all their attacking prowess, defensively they look absolutely amateurish at times and I feel Leicester away from home is one fixture where they cannot afford that to be the case. Arsenal may well score a goal, but I still expect Leicester to run out comfortable winners here.

Liverpool have dropped just two points all season to lie 1st in the Premier League.
City are 2nd in the table, six points adrift of Liverpool and two points clear of Leicester.
Liverpool have won five of the last 10 between the teams, City winning three.
City’s last victory at Anfield came back in May 2003. A 2-1 victory.
There is no doubt that this is the biggest game of the weekend and perhaps one of the most crucial games ever to have been played in the Premier League at this point of the season. A Liverpool win would move the Reds nine points clear of City and could see City drop to fourth in the table. A City win would cut the gap on the Reds to just three points, and City have a far superior goal difference to the Reds at the moment.
Liverpool will be without Joel Matip for the game, as well as long-term injury absentee Shaqiri, but City have a host of players missing through injury including Sane, Laporte, David Silva, Rodri and Zinchenko, which could see Fernandinho continue in a central defensive role for the visitors.
City came close to beating Liverpool at Anfield last season, Riyad Mahrez blasting a late penalty high and wide for City in a game that finished 0-0. However, after missing out to City for the title by one point last season, the Reds fans will be up for this game as they were that crucial Champions League semifinal against Barcelona and in that electrifying atmosphere, it is hard to back against a team that have not lost a league game at home since April 2017.
