Fulham vs. Southampton

Saturday 26th December, 03:00 PM Kick-Off

Craven Cottage

Fulham On the Rise

Scott Parker's Fulham squad have been confronted with relegation talks for much of this season. But a newfound undefeated streak has sparked a 'lil' flare between the team, as the Cottagers are set to defend their home turf versus a travelling Southampton.

Unfortunately for Fulham, Southampton's streak is more impressive; a twelve-game stretch has seen the Saints lose on a mere two occasions. Southampton is sixth in the Premier League and besides their Manchester City fixture, have scored in their previous thirteen fixtures.

Form, Mentality, Premier League Odds and Trends

  • Fulham has won a minor two games from their fourteen EPL fixtures.

  • In their previous four games, Fulham has seen under 2.5 goals scored.

  • Southampton has not lost a single game from their previous six matches.

  • Southampton has avoided defeated in eleven of their previous twelve away games.

  • Southampton has won five of their last six meetings with Fulham.

Final Thoughts| Premier League Betting Tips

The Saint’s are not accustomed to losing this season, and it is doubtful that relegation zone Fulham are going to crack the Southampton equation.

Arsenal vs. Chelsea

Saturday 26th December, 05:30 PM Kick-Off

The Emirates Stadium

Dark Days Ahead for Arsenal

Arsenal's winless streak of seven games did not get any better midweek. Optimism arose with their Carabao Cup hopes, but Pep Guardiola gave Arsenal fans a stern reminder of their season thus far. A 4-1 quarter-final defeat for Arsenal has only added to the problems in North London.

Chelsea is flying high in their 20/21 EPL campaign, sitting comfortable in 5th place, Frank Lampard's side is one point adrift of third place, two points from second & six points separated from the top spot.

Form, Mentality, Premier League Odds and Trends

  • Arsenal has won one of their last ten EPL fixtures.

  • Arsenal has lost four of their previous five home games.

  • Chelsea has avoided defeat in eighteen of their last twenty matches in all competitions.

Final Thoughts| Premier League Betting tips

The available odds are no longer siding with Arsenal at home or on the road, Mikel Arteta struggling with the squad and a January transfer window is desperately needed.

This time last season, Chelsea capitalised on a declining Arsenal, one year later they will face a weaker squad whose confidence is at an all-time low.

Liverpool vs. West Bromwich Albion

Sunday 27th December, 04:30 PM Kick-Off

Anfield

Liverpool Remain Dominant

A new manager in Sam Allardyce, relegation worries and just one win this season should give West Brom little hope as they travel to Anfield on Boxing Day. Coping with a broken squad and expecting results won't happen overnight with big Sam, and when faced with the best team in the division, the Baggies won't expect much from their upcoming fixture either.

Final Thoughts| Premier League Betting Tips

When a club enters a fixture as the current EPL Champions and smashes seven goals past their opposition, challenging clubs should begin to worry. Liverpool decimated Crystal Palace 7-0 as the league leaders sent a clear message to the entire division.

Now faced with a weaker side than Crystal Palace, Jurgen Klopp and the Reds can feast their attacking display for consecutive weeks.

The available odds for Liverpool are steep, but we can collect even money backing the home team to win both halves.
