Premier League Tips – 30th August – 1st September

Author: Published: August 29, 2022

Premier League TipsAfter a great start to the season which saw me over £100 in profit, the last couple of matchdays have been a bit of a disappointment with a small loss in Matchday 3 and another loss on Matchday 4.

My biggest regret this week was not staying true to my hunch that Raheem Sterling would score for Chelsea sooner rather than later. I backed him last week, when he had two great chances to score, but I went for Havertz this week, only for Sterling to score twice in the win over Leicester.

I suppose there is a lesson to be learnt there about having faith in your predictions, even if they don’t quite pan out as early as you would have hoped.

The midweek games are required to ensure that the EPL can finish its season while still incorporating the World Cup Finals later this year and there are set to be more of these midweek dates, especially in the second half of the season.

This time we have some great games with Leeds hosting Everton, West Ham facing off against Spurs, Liverpool and Newcastle locking horns at Anfield, Arsenal taking on Aston Villa and in the final game of midweek, Leicester City host Manchester United at the King Power.

We did see a fair few goals in the Premier League this weekend, and it looks likely we could have a few in midweek too. Let’s take a look at the games and bets I have backed in the Premier League in midweek.

And remember to join me on Saturday for my tips for the top weekend fixtures!

Football Betting Tips: Tuesday 30th August

Fulham VS Brighton
30/08/2022 7:30 pm GMT

Key Stats

Fulham are mid-table having collected 5 points from their 4 games so far.
Brighton are in the Champions League qualifying spots after a brilliant start to the season.
No team has conceded fewer goals than Brighton in the EPL (just 1 in four games).
Going back to last season, Brighton are unbeaten in their last nine EPL games.

Analysis

Aside from Arsenal and Manchester City, the team that have impressed me the most in the Premier League this season have been Brighton. I love the way Graham Potter has this team set up to play and it is no coincidence that they have gone nine games in the Premier League, going back into last season, without tasting defeat.

Fulham have started brightly in the Premier League but they were beaten at the weekend by Arsenal despite putting up a brave show in that game at the Emirates and I think that is going to test their resolve, especially in a game against a top four side just a few days later.

The home side have proven they are tough to beat at Craven Cottage, but Brighton have won both their away games this season and if anything, look a more dangerous side on the road than they do at home.

So with that in mind I am backing Brighton to win this game and for their super-talented defence to keep Fulham down to one goal while the visiting Seagulls should find the net twice to land a 2-1 win and that is the Correct Score bet I am making here.

Prediction

Correct Score – Brighton to win 2-1 - £10 returns £110.00

Leeds United VS Everton
30/08/2022 8:00 pm GMT

Key Stats

Leeds are comfortably placed in the top five despite losing to Brighton on Saturday.
Everton are 18th with 2 points from their four games and are without a win.
The last six games between the two have been shared 2 wins each with 2 draws.
However Leeds last EPL home win over Everton was back in December 2001 (3-2).

Analysis

I was so impressed with Leeds performance against Chelsea a couple of weeks back, but then they struggled against a good Brighton side in their next game, however I think the home fans will be happy to see the team back at home and against an Everton side that I think are going to be struggling at times this season.

Frank Lampard’s team have drawn their last two games but still sit in the drop zone and that will certainly be worrying the former Chelsea star. The problem Everton have is that they are not scoring very many goals, but they are conceding them at the other end, especially late in games.

Leeds effort and endeavour against Chelsea saw them earn a big win and I think a similar level of performance here will see them pick up another valuable three points in their quest to finish as high up the Premier League table as they can.

As for Everton, they may grab a consolation, but at the moment I see these as two teams on different paths, Leeds seem to be improving, while Everton do seem to be a team very much on the slide and with seemingly little hope of stopping it.

Prediction

Leeds United to win and both teams to score - £10 returns £42.00
18+. Play Safe. From 00:01 on 17.10.2022. 3x £10 free bets. Free bets expire after 30 days. New customers signing up through mobile or tablet device only. Minimum £10 stake on odds of 1/2 (1.5) or greater on sportsbook (excluding Virtual markets). Further terms apply. #ad T&C's apply

Football Betting Tips: Wednesday 31st August

West Ham VS Tottenham
31/08/2022 7:45 pm GMT

Key Stats

West Ham have had a slow and disappointing start to the season with 1 point from 3 games.
Spurs lie in the top four in the Premier League and are unbeaten in 3 games.
The Hammers won this game 1-0 last season, before losing 3-1 in the return.
Both teams have scored in 5 of the last 7 matches between the two in all competitions.

Analysis

At the time of writing, West Ham are leading Aston Villa by a goal to nil in what would be a huge win for David Moyes’ team if they can hang on and if they do then this result would certainly give the Hammers a huge confidence boost heading into this midweek clash against their London rivals Tottenham.

Spurs have started the season with some dogged performances under Antonio Conte and while they may not be playing the free-flowing football of other Spurs teams of late, they have been picking up good results and remain very much in the race for things at the top of the table.

One positive for Spurs is that their forward line of Son, Kane and Kulusevski (with Richarlison and Moura as back ups) does look hugely potent and you would expect them to score bags of goals this season and be a threat to any team, home or away.

As such, I feel West Ham may find this game is a tricky one, especially coming just after a tricky away game at Villa Park on the Sunday. I can see the home side scoring, but I think Spurs will get two or maybe even three in reply to claim the win.

Prediction

Tottenham to win and both teams to score - £10 returns £37.00
18+. Play Safe. From 00:01 on 17.10.2022. 3x £10 free bets. Free bets expire after 30 days. New customers signing up through mobile or tablet device only. Minimum £10 stake on odds of 1/2 (1.5) or greater on sportsbook (excluding Virtual markets). Further terms apply. #ad T&C's apply

Football Betting Tips: Thursday 1st September

Leicester VS Man Utd
01/09/2022 8:00 pm GMT

Key Stats

Leicester languish in the relegation zone after a poor start to the season.
Two wins in their last two has moved United up to 7th in the EPL table.
Only Bournemouth (16) have conceded more than Leicester’s 10 goals this season.
Leicester are unbeaten in their last 4 against United, winning the last three of those games.

Analysis

There is no doubt there is real pressure on Brendan Rodgers and his Leicester team ahead of this game with Manchester United. A poor start has left the Foxes in the relegation zone and in desperate need of a win to kick start their season.

However, they face a Manchester United team that has won their last two games to move into the top half of the table after being bottom after the first two games of the season. Erik Ten Hag has made some bold changes in personnel after those two defeats and it does seem to have paid off.

The problem I have with United is that while they were excellent against Liverpool, they struggled against Southampton and I think even against a poor Leicester side shipping goals, they are going to offer up chances to the Foxes at the other end of the field too.

I do believe Leicester are a much better team than their position in the table suggests and they have a very good record against Manchester United of late. I also feel United are perhaps not quite as strong as their recent form suggests and with that in mind I think a score draw is the most likely outcome here.
