Premier League Football Tips: 24th & 25th October

Author: Published: October 23, 2020

Premier League TipsIf you’re on the email list for tips you’ll know I was going for four profitable tips posts in a row on Thursday night…

Well we smashed it out the park with a £97 return from £10 bets (£57 profit)!

Needless to say we’re high on confidence at the moment and looking to make it five in five with this weekends Premier League football tips.

This week’s set of tips features three games from Saturday and one from Sunday and of course includes the big game at Old Trafford as Manchester United face Chelsea in what should be a cracker.

Let’s take a look at the tips I have put together for this coming weekend in more detail.

Premier League Tips: Saturday 24th October

West Ham VS Man City
24/10/2020 12:30 pm GMT

Key Stats

West Ham lie 9th in the table with 7 points from their 5 games (+3 GD).
City lie 11th but have played just four games and also have 7 points.
City have won all of the last 10 between the teams. Scoring 25 conceding 4.
The Hammers have scored just one goal in the last 5 games between the two.

Analysis

If you are a West Ham fan, the one team you don’t want to face if you are looking at recent records, is Manchester City. The Citizens have been West Ham’s nemesis in recent years winning all of the last ten and scoring 25 goals in those games, conceding just four. Go back to September 2009 and in all the games between the teams since then, West Ham have won just two.

So it doesn’t look great for West Ham in this one historically but recent form does offer them some hope. A spirited fightback from 3-0 down to grab a last gasp draw at Tottenham last week kept their unbeaten run going for three games and in turn, Manchester City themselves have not been at their best losing one and drawing one of their four games so far this season.

City were stronger defensively against Arsenal last week, but I think they still look susceptible on the road and while I still expect them to beat West Ham on Saturday, I still feel that the Hammers may yet manage to score a rare goal against City in reply.

For me though, with Aguero now back in the team, I am backing City to come away with a 2-1 or 3-1 victory from this game.

Man City to win & both teams to score - £10 returns £25.00

Fulham VS Crystal Palace
24/10/2020 3:00 pm GMT

Key Stats

Fulham are still bottom of the table on goal difference, although they now have 1 point.
Palace lie 14th in the table with 7 points but with a -2 goal difference.
Palace have won the last two between these teams, both by a 2-0 scoreline.
Fulham hold the all-time win record with 17 wins to Palace’s 13, with 15 draws.

Analysis

Last weekend both these teams picked up draws but could have won but for late equalisers for their opponents. That will have stung most for Fulham who were on the verge of three points at Sheffield United before giving away a penalty that Billy Sharp converted for the home side.

Similarly, Palace were leading against Brighton before Alexis Mac Allister’s 90th minute leveller handed the Seagulls a point that they probably just about deserved.

As a London derby, you can expect plenty of passion in this game, but I think the odds favour Palace here. I think their team is better set up to hit on the counter away from home than by trying to push the game at home and as such, I feel that is why their better performances tend to come on the road.

I remain firmly unconvinced by Fulham at the moment and while Scott Parker’s team will battle hard, I think that Palace will likely run out 2-1 winners in this one.

Prediction

Crystal Palace to win & both teams to score - £10 returns £55.00

Football Betting Tips: Sunday 25th October

Man Utd VS Chelsea
24/10/2020 5:30 pm GMT

Key Stats

United lie 15th in the table having played a game less than most with 6 points from 4 games.
Chelsea are 8th in the table with 8 points from their 5 games so far.
Chelsea won the last encounter, 3-1 in the FA Cup Semifinal back in July.
Prior to that, United had won four of the last six between the two, drawing two.

Analysis

Last season, Manchester United won this fixture 4-0 on the opening weekend of the season, but it would prove to be a false dawn for the Red Devils as they struggled to match that form over the majority of the rest of the season.

Still their recent record over Chelsea is excellent with just two defeats in the last ten games with the Londoners, a record that Frank Lampard’s side improved with their 3-1 win in the FA Cup Semifinal at Wembley last season.

However, Chelsea’s last Premier League win over United came back in November 2017 and in truth, given how they have shown a worrying propensity to throw points away already this season, notably against Southampton last week, I am not sure they have much chance of improving on that record in this game.

That said, I am also not convinced United’s defence have the capability to deal with Chelsea’s lightning fast attack with Timo Werner the real threat and as such, I can see both teams scoring a goal or maybe two, but I think a draw remains the most likely outcome.

Arsenal VS Leicester
25/10/2020 7:15 pm GMT

Key Stats

With 9 points from 5 games, Arsenal are 5th in the Premier League table.
Despite losing their last two, Leicester are 4th in the table also with 9 points.
The Foxes have won three of the last five between the two teams in the Premier League.
Leicester’s last away win against Arsenal in London was in September 1973 (0-2).

Analysis

It is fair to say that despite a relatively strong recent record against Arsenal on home soil, Leicester are not used to getting much out of their trips to London to face the Gunners. They have picked up a few draws over the years, but their last league win against the Gunners away from home came way back in September 1973, when the Foxes were 2-0 winners.

Brendan Rodgers men have also lost their last two home games to West Ham and Aston Villa over the past two weeks and it is clear that their confidence has taken a hit with those two results and that could be something Arsenal can profit from.

The Gunners battled hard ultimately in defeat away to Manchester City last time out, but I think they will be more confident of picking. Up the points here against a Leicester City side that have produced a stunning win on the road over Man City this season but who have since looked a little flat and uninspiring.

As such, I am going to go for another close and tight game like both teams had last week and I think that the home side will do just enough to snatch the win by a single goal, probably by a 1-0 scoreline.

Prediction

Arsenal to win to nil - £10 returns £38.00
