Premier League preview: Saturday’s action including Chelsea vs Everton

Premier League preview: Saturday’s action including Chelsea vs Everton

Aston Villa vs Bournemouth

Bournemouth claimed an unforeseen win against Liverpool last week, and the Cherries have shown unexpected fight in recent weeks. They took the lead against Arsenal after one minute and were only denied a point against the Gunners by a last-gasp moment of inspiration from Reiss Nelson.

With the south coast side showing plenty of tenacity in their bid to escape the drop zone, Gary O’Neil’s men could give Villa a run for their money this week.

The Villans are unquestionably improved since Unai Emery took the reins. But they have lost two of their last three league games at Villa Park. Both Teams To Score seems likely, with Bournemouth having scored against City, Arsenal and Liverpool in recent weeks.

BTTS is a 22/25 shot; backing Bournemouth or the draw in the Double Chance market at 11/10 is tempting too.

Brentford vs Leicester

It’s five straight defeats for Leicester in all competitions, and the Foxes have only scored twice in that run.

Even with James Maddison returning, the team have failed to spark much in the way of entertaining or effective football. And with just 24 points, Brendan Rodgers’ side are definitely in the mix for relegation.

Leicester could use an away win, but Brentford are unbeaten at home in nine league outings. They saw off Southampton at St Mary’s earlier this week, and striker Ivan Toney has scored eight goals in his last eleven appearances for the Bees. He may figure prominently again here.

Brentford are evens to win; Toney is 5/4 to score at any time.

Southampton vs Tottenham

There was room for cautious optimism for Southampton after they took four points from recent meetings with Leicester and Man Utd. But after losing 2-0 at home to Brentford midweek, the Saints are back in the doldrums.

Ruben Selles’ side remains mired at the foot of the league table, and the Saints have lost five of their last six home games in the Prem. And as chronically unreliable as Tottenham seem to be, they’re still currently fourth in the Prem. They should fancy this one.

After all, Spurs have won five of their last seven league matches – even though they’ve won just one of their last four games in all competitions.

Whatever, this seems the kind of match where the hosts will be hanging doggedly on for whatever they can take, even if a point doesn’t do them much good right now.

Will Southampton be able to restrict Tottenham’s goalmouth opportunities? The Saints have only conceded three goals in their last five matches, while Spurs have drawn blanks in their last three away games in all comps. It’s not a bet to set the world alight, but under 2.5 goals at 22/25 may at least be a reliable flutter.

Wolves vs Leeds

Leeds are 19th in the Prem, Wolves 13th – yet just four points separate these sides. Last time the hosts played at Molineux they saw off Tottenham 1-0, but that’s the Old Gold’s only win in their last five league games.

Leeds are in a still more unspectacular run, with just one Prem victory in a 13-game sequence dating back to November. The home side must view this encounter as an excellent opportunity to pick up a win – so can the West Yorkshire team flummox them?

Both Teams To Score – No at 22/25 could be the way to go. That bet would have paid off in six of Leeds’ last eight league games, and in six of Wolves’ last nine.

Chelsea vs Everton

After three straight wins for Chelsea, Graham Potter may have ridden out the storm at Stamford Bridge. So do Everton offer an inviting opportunity for the hosts to record an emphatic win, or could Sean Dyche’s side cause the Blues a setback?

The Toffees haven’t mustered an away win since they beat Southampton back in October, though they did manage a 2-2 draw against Forest at the City Ground earlier this month.

They should find it tougher to penetrate Chelsea’s defence; despite the west London side’s recent struggles to win, they’ve stayed fairly adroit at keeping out the opposition.

Four of Chelsea’s last five home games have seen the visitors fail to find the net. It could be a similar story here, and so backing Chelsea to win and Both Teams To Score No in a double at 26/25 might be a decent option.
