Premier League Preview: Tuesday 30th June / Wednesday 1st July / Thursday 2nd July
Premier League Odds & Betting Tips
The battle for a European berth continues in the English top-flight over the next three nights and we take a look at the best Premier League odds available for these midweek matches.
Tuesday 30th June
Brighton & Hove Albion v Manchester United – 8:15pm Sky Sports
We don’t exactly believe that Manchester United will run riot in this one and similarly we don’t believe that Brighton & Hove will even manage to find the back of the net. As such the belief is that this will prove to be a low-scoring affair with the outcome likely settled by a solitary goal. Harry Maguire is certainly a handful right now and the Seagulls will have a hard job keeping him at bay, however our fancied goal scorer option is Bruno Fernandes, the Portuguese playmaker impressing right now having found the net three times in seven league outings. He is also a very proficient free-kick taker and should he find himself within range, he will doubtless be going for goal on the south coast tonight.
Wednesday 1st July
Arsenal v Norwich City – 6pm BT Sport 1
Arsenal are undoubtedly heading in the right direction having managed back-to-back wins and they will be going all-out to make it three on the bounce when they entertain Norwich City on Wednesday evening. The line will likely be led by Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who should return to the goal trail against the Premier League’s worst defence. Backing Aubameyang to break the deadlock at the Emirates Stadium certainly holds plenty of appeal and we’ll be siding with him to get the Gunners off to the best possible start in this midweek outing.
Bournemouth v Newcastle United – 6pm Sky Sports
Newcastle United have impressed of late in the Premier League with four points collected from their first two outings after the enforced break. As such we fancy their chances of taking another three at the expense of an AFC Bournemouth side which are dreadfully out of form right now. The Cherries have collected just a single point from six matches and they have lost three of these 2-1, therefore we’ll be sticking with this and backing Newcastle United to edge past them by the same scoreline on Wednesday evening.
Everton v Leicester City – 6pm Sky Sports
Leicester City have failed to impress since returning from the break, however this could be a chance for them to add three points to their total and boost their chances of claiming a Champions League berth at the end of the season. The Foxes enjoyed a 2-1 win over Everton in their last league meeting earlier in the campaign and we envisage the Toffees adding to the scoreline this week. Nevertheless Leicester are certainly the stronger of these two sides and we’ll be keeping things nice and simple and going for an away win and both teams to score.
West Ham United v Chelsea – 8:15pm Sky Sports
Chelsea have been in excellent fettle since returning to action and we believe that their 100% post-lockdown record when they travel across the capital on Wednesday evening. Opponents West Ham United have suffered defeat in nine of their last thirteen games across competitions with just a solitary win during that time . With four of their last defeats being to the tune of 2-0, it’s certainly tempting to back Chelsea winning by this scoreline in this midweek London derby.
Thursday 2nd July
Sheffield United v Tottenham Hotspur – 6pm Sky Sports
Sheffield United are falling behind in the race for a European berth and having collected just a single point and scored no goals in their three post-lockdown league matches, they will be desperate to turn things around. The Blades did manage to find the net in their weekend FA Cup clash with Arsenal, however it was little more than a consolation and we expect their woes to continue when Tottenham Hotspur come to town on Thursday evening. Spurs brushed aside West Ham United to the tune of 2-0 in their last outing and we envisage the visitors keeping a clean sheet on their way to three more points at Bramall lane this week.
Manchester City v Liverpool – 8:15pm Sky Sports
The top-two in the Premier League lock horns on Thursday evening in what could either be a thrilling affair or a disappointing damp squib. The Reds have clinched the Premier League title with room to spare while Man City have been by-and-large disappointing this season. Pep Guardiola’s men are certainly a force to be reckoned with when at their best and the bookies have them chalked in as odds-on favourites to win the title next season, however the current campaign belongs to Liverpool and we expect the Merseysiders to continue in winning ways with victory at the Emirates Stadium.
