Chelsea, Everton and Newcastle treble given profitable price boost
It may come as somewhat of a surprise that less than half of the 150 Premier League fixtures to have taken place so far this season have been won by the team playing at home, but this does not detract any confidence in Chelsea, Everton and Newcastle all securing three points in the next round of games.
And the urge to place a bet on this treble is increased by Coral’s price boost on the trio all winning to 3/1.
Chelsea have only dropped two points at Stamford Bridge this season in their seven home games and they host a Crystal Palace team that have lost all their road trips to top-flight opposition so far by exactly two goals.
Tony Pulis will not have the fondest memories of Stamford Bridge either, as it remains the scene of his heaviest Premier League defeat when Stoke were smashed 7-0 in 2010.
Pulis has clearly made defensive improvements since taking over at Crystal Palace which should prevent another hammering, but six goals in their last 12 games suggests they may have difficulty creating chances at the other end.
Palace haven’t beaten Chelsea for 20 years either and they have lost all 10 league games this season in which they have conceded first. With Jose Mourinho needing to win this, a fast start is especially pivotal.
When it comes to away records against certain clubs, Fulham’s record at Everton is even worse. The Cottagers have never triumphed on a league visit to Everton, losing 20 in a row at Goodison Park, dating back to 1975.
Everton are also unbeaten at home in the whole of 2013, while Fulham have lost all of their previous Premier League games this season against opposition currently in the top half of the standings.
Seven goals in their last two home fixtures additionally suggests Everton can win this, especially as Fulham have conceded 13 times across their last four away games in all competitions.
Finally, although Newcastle and Southampton sit seventh and eighth respectively in the league table, both come into this meeting at St James’ Park in entirely different form.
Newcastle have won five of their last six in the Premier League, including three on the bounce on their own patch.
Meanwhile, Southampton have only taken one point from the last possible 12 available and are winless on the road since October.
Another enhanced price that ties in with these fixtures is the double of Romelu Lukaku and Loic Remy both scoring in their respective 90 minutes, which is inviting at 7/2.
Remy is certainly due a goal, as over 350 minutes without a Newcastle goal represents his longest drought of the season.
As for Lukaku, he has gone two games without a goal, but does have three in his last two appearances at Goodison Park.
