Premier League tips for matchweek 20
The English top-flight produced thrilling fixture entertainment with its high-profile clashes on New Years Day, but there are even more glamour games to enjoy this midweek with elite teams in action across Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. So dive into Coral’s Premier League tips for matchweek 20, featuring Spurs v Chelsea odds and much more.
With teams such as the Blues, Tottenham, Manchester United, West Ham United and Arsenal all taking to the field, don’t miss out on a slice of the January betting…
Boro and Leicester to split spoils
Live on Sky Sports 1 at 12:30 GMT
Teesside team Middlesbrough are in the midst of a poor patch, with only one win in five, but have bagged the spoils in two of their last three matches at the Riverside, where they next host Leicester City.
Claudio Ranieri’s men ground out a much needed victory over West Ham last time out, but that was at their home fortress The King Power. Points on the road have proven more problematic, with only four picked up away all season.
To boot, Boro and the Foxes ended evenly in their last encounter too, earlier this term, so look good at 21/10 for another draw on Monday.
Anthony Martial to score and Man Utd beat Hammers
Live on Sky Sports 1 at 17:15 GMT
With this wrangle in east London set to be the seventh time across the past two seasons that Man Utd and West Ham have clashed, punters must feel as though they are always playing one another.
Still, the Red Devils showed Alex Ferguson era-esque character to come back from behind versus Boro on last time out and continue their run of five straight league wins, so the Hammers look unlikely to halt that after winning just one of those last seven meetings.
Anthony Martial was back on form for Man Utd with an instinctive goal on New Year’s Eve and boasts five in his previous four against the Irons. So, backing the France forward to dispatch again in a Red Devils victory at 3/1 is fine value.
Arsenal to beat Bournemouth and both score
Live on Sky Sports 1 at 19:45 GMT
The Gunners have kept just the one clean sheet from their previous six outings in all competitions and, if punters cast their minds back to November, the Cherries put one past them at the Emirates, giving Arsenal a brief first half scare before eventually losing 3-1.
Having lost Shkodran Mustafi to injury, the Londoners have looked vulnerable at the back. While, Bournemouth are certainly capable of finding the net at Dean Court and are fresh from smashing three past Swansea City. So, backing the Gunners’ firepower to come out on top with a win but their hosts to also score makes sense at 5/2.
Blues to better Spurs and over 2.5 goals
Live on Sky Sports 1 at 20:00 GMT
Chelsea downed London rivals Tottenham last in November, with a 2-1 triumph at Stamford Bridge, and Coral are offering a repeat of a Blues win and over 2.5 goals in the game at an enticing 16/5.
This time the Blues must travel to White Hart Lane to face a back in-form Spurs side, but have lost only one of their past 15 frays with their fellow capital club, so should feel confident.
The league leaders have also levelled the record for most consecutive PL victories in a single season with 13 in a row and now have their eye on emulating Arsenal’s 14 successive triumphs over two terms, so Mauricio Pochettino’s men will have a task on their hands to halt them.
