Chelsea V Spurs Tops A Busy Weekend of Premier League Action

November 25, 2020

It’s strange to think that after this weekend, we will be over a quarter of the way through the Premier League season. Given that at this point of the season in the past two years, Liverpool and Manchester City have been running away with things, the fact that there are just seven points between the top teams and Arsenal in 12th, does make it seem like this Premier League season will be a lot closer.

Especially when you consider that those 12 teams do not include 13th placed Manchester City who do have a game in hand and 12 points from their eight games so far.

So this weekend could be a crucial one in the title race especially when you consider the teams that lie third and first in the table will be clashing at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea welcome league leaders Tottenham for what should be a cracking London derby.

If you are keen to enjoy a wager on this huge game, or indeed any of the others we have tipped below and you need to sign up with a sports betting site to do that, then a good place to start is with the current bet365 Sport New Player Offer which sees up to £100 available in Bet Credits once you start betting on the site.

Premier League Preview and Tips

Friday 27th November

Crystal Palace v Newcastle United (8pm)

The first game of the weekend takes place at Selhurst Park with these two mid-table sides battling it out to stay away from the drop zone. Both sides have not been consistent this season and both come into the game on the back of a defeat, but Palace’s home form has been very erratic these past two years and with both sides not that prolific in front of goal, but decent defensively, I think a single goal may decide the winner here. Correct Score – Crystal Palace 1-0 Newcastle – 13/2.

Saturday 28th November

Brighton v Liverpool (12.30pm)

A solid win at home to Leicester moved Liverpool to second in the table on goal difference behind Spurs and they now face a tricky trip to Brighton, who picked up a huge win at Aston Villa last weekend. With Diogo Jota in such great form the Reds should be confident here but the AMEX is never an easy place to get a result, so I do think this will be a closely fought contest. Correct Score – Brighton 1-2 Liverpool – 8/1.

Manchester City v Burnley (3pm)

Burnley landed their first win of the season last weekend at home to Crystal Palace but their chances of improving that to two wins in a row looks slim against a Man City side which, although out of form, should still be very confident of landing a win here against a team that has scored just four goals so far this season. Correct Score – Manchester City 4-0 Burnley – 9/1.

Everton v Leeds United (5.30pm)

Everton halted a run of three defeats with a win at Fulham last weekend to move to 6th in the table while Wolves held Arsenal 0-0 to lie 14th. Leeds have won lots of admirers with their style of play this season but it hasn’t translated into many wins of late with just one in their last five games. Everton have a similar run of form at this time too and as such, I think this could be something of a surprise here as I am backing Leeds to land a point. Correct Score – Everton 2-2 Leeds United – 12/1.

West Brom v Sheffield United (8pm)

The bottom two in the Premier League clash at the Hawthorns in a game that both Bet365 EPL Poker Promotionteams will likely feel is a must win game. Neither has landed a win all season long in the Premier League, although the Baggies have two more points than the Blades at the moment. I also feel that they are plauing slightlu better and with home advantage, that could be enough to secure a win here. Correct Score – WBA 1-0 Sheffield United – 7/1

Sunday 29th November

Southampton v Manchester United (2pm)

Which Manchester United will turn up for this game. Solskjaer’s men have been like Jekyll and Hyde this season, brilliant one week, awful the next. Southampton after a slow start have been hugely consistent of late and I think they won’t be afraid of United here. That said, I just feel United have gained a bit of momentum and I am backing them to continue that with a very good win on the road in this one. Correct Score Tip – Southampton 1-2 Manchester United – 17/2.

Chelsea v Tottenham (4.30pm)

The biggest game of the weekend comes at Stamford Bridge as Chelsea take on Spurs in what should be a corking encounter. In the last eight between the two, there have been four wins apiece and the added spice of Jose Mourinho’s return to the Bridge should see even more sparks fly. Both teams are in good form at the moment and both have lost just once this season. Their records are very similar and that to me all points to one most likely outcome. Correct Score Tip – Chelsea 1-1 Tottenham – 13/2.

Arsenal v Wolves (7.15pm)

Having spent a fortune for the guaranteed goals of Aubameyang on a new contract, Arsenal’s return of 9 goal sin 9 games is pretty paltry and the team now lie 12th in the table. Wolves lie 9th after their 1-1 draw with Southampton on Monday and I think this has the hallmarks of being a very good game. Both side stack up well against each other and at the moment, I feel like Wolves probably have the edge in terms of form. Correct Score Tip – Arsenal 1-2 Wolves – 14/1.

Monday 30th November

Leicester City v Fulham (5.30pm)

After suffering a defeat at Liverpool last weekend, Leicester dropped to fourth in the table and they now face Fulham at the King Power Stadium with the London side 18th in the table, having picked up just four points so far this season. It’s hard to make any real case for Fulham here, although Leicester have come unstuck at home this season a couple of times already. Even so, I expect them to land a confidence-boosting win here. Correct Score Tip – Leicester City 3-0 Fulham – 11/1.

West Ham v Aston Villa (8pm)

The final game of the weekend is an intriguing one between two teams that have had better than expected starts. Villa have faltered a couple of times now but bounced back to lie 7th with the Hammers just one spot behind in eighth. West Ham’s form is slightly the better of the two teams at the moment and with home advantage, I just feel that they have the quality to get the job done here. Correct Score Tip – West Ham United 2-1 Aston Villa – 9/1.
