PREMIER LEAGUE FIXTURES: ROUND 24 BETTING TIPS
Liverpool v Leicester City
Second-placed Liverpool are still without key players Sadio Mane and Mo Salah due to international duties in the AFCON Final. Jurgen Klopp went against his traditional means of business to spend big money in the January transfer window, as he managed to sign Luis Diaz from Porto to the tune of £34M. The Reds won their previous fixtures in a comfortable manner scoring three goals in both games, seeing off Crystal Palace and Brentford in the process.
Leicester had a very quiet transfer window with no signings nor departures as the team remains the same for the remainder of the season. Brendan Rodgers seems to be happy with the options that he has available. In-form striker Patson Daka has been the main source of threat for the Foxes – netting four times in nine appearances in the Premier League. The FA Cup defeat against Nottingham Forest will surely dampen the spirits as they conceded four, something they need to improve on when facing the heavy hitters Liverpool.
Liverpool will be wary of the threat that the Foxes pose as in the reverse fixture at the King Power Stadium Leicester came out as the victors with a 1-0 victory. We’ve got Liverpool on offer to take all three points at Anfield at 2/7 (1.28), while Leicester are priced at 35/4 (9.75), to secure a double over their rivals this season.
Wolves vs Arsenal
Wolves, who are on a five-game unbeaten run, impressively beat Manchester United and drew to Chelsea to push themselves into the top half of the table. Bruno Lage, named January’s Manager of the month, brought in Chiquinho while offloading star man Adama Traore as he joined his former club Barcelona. On Saturday, the Wanderes were knocked out of the FA Cup against Norwich City, with a below-par performance where they struggled to create clear cut chances despite having the majority of the ball. Wolves have enjoyed success in previous years against Arsenal as they won their previous two meeting with an identical score of 2-1.
Arsenal, who are in sixth with two games in hand, have stalled in their quest to finish in the top four, with a recent draw against Burnley. This comes after an impressive four consecutive wins in the festive period where they conceded only once and scored an impressive 14 in the process. Without the addition of any January reinforcements and the loss of fringe players, Mikel Areta’s hopes for a top four spot will rest on his star players remaining fit and sharing the burden of scoring goals. In recent visits to the Molineux, Arsenal have lost three of their last five games.
Wolves are at 13/5 (3.60), to win and make it three wins in a row, while Arsenal are valued at 6/5 (2.2), making them the favourites on the night to take all three points.
LV BET are offering as well Arsenal to win and over 2.5 goals in the game for 53/20 (3.65)
Newcastle vs Everton
Newcastle United’s new owners have dished out the cash by luring in talented players that they hope will be enough to keep them in the division. The Magpies spent a total of £91M, and with new manager Eddie Howe, things are looking better than in previous months. The important thing now is putting in good performances and getting points on the board to justify the expenditure in the transfer window.
Newcastle United are now on a three-game unbeaten run, drawing two and winning against Leeds. Knowing that a win on Tuesday will move the team out of the relegation zone for the first time this season, with potential six-pointer games still to come against Burnley and Norwich
Everton also made some notable additions to their squad in the January transfer window, bringing in Delle Alli from Spurs and Donny Van de Beek from Manchester United on loan until the end of the season. Both players have piled on praise towards manager Frank Lampard as he played a big part in making their move happen. Everton currently occupy 16th place – just four points above the relegation zone with four defeats in their last five matches played. Everton’s faithful will be hoping that their new manager and singings will push towards a mid-table finish. Victory over Brentford in the FA Cup will surely appease the Evertonian crowds as they had very few moments to cheer during Rafael Benitez tenure.
Previous fixtures favour Newcastle as they are unbeaten in the last three encounters against the Toffies, as they won two and drawn one. At LV BET we are offering Newcastle at 8/5 (2.60) to win, with Frank Lampard starting off this career with Everton with three points valued at 17/10 (2.70).
You can get a 2-1 victory for the home side at 35/4 (9.75).
