Premier League Betting Predictions Match Week 14
Manchester City v Chelsea
Sky Sports 1 UK
All eyes will on the Etihad Stadium on Saturday lunchtime as Pep Guardiola's Manchester attempt to stop the Chelsea juggernaut. City made hard work of a victory over Burnley last weekend, but two Sergio Aguero goals made the different. City have kept just a single clean sheet in all competitions since the 17th of September and look shaky at the back. Vincent Kompany will miss this which leaves the unconvincing partnership of John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi at the back. David Silva was rested last weekend whilst Kevin De Bruyne came off the bench so Pep's side should be fresh for this. They will be helped by the lack of midweek activity which is a rare commodity for a side involved in European competitions. Chelsea have been solid, but conceded their first goal in 600 minutes of football against Spurs last weekend. Antonio Conte has settled on his 3-4-3 formation with the likes of Victor Moses and Pedro excelling. The Blues have won the last three games on the road without conceding, but their defence was breached at the Bridge last week and it's going to take some effort to keep Manchester City at bay. Chelsea haven't had much luck on their previous visits to this stadium with a 3-0 defeat here last season and a 2-0 loss in the FA Cup back in 2014. The Blues should be able to breach the City defence at least a couple of times.

Crystal Palace v Southampton
Alan Pardew's future continues to be up for discussion. His side still possesses the worst form across all four of the English divisions and were involved in the ludicrous 5-4 loss to Swansea last weekend. Palace showed threat, but complete incompetence at the back. All 5 of Swansea's goal appeared preventable and they'll have to tighten up when the Saints come to town. The news of Connor Wickham's season ending injury won't have helped the mood at Selhurst Park and there won't be many Palace fans feeling optimistic ahead of this one. The Eagles are level on points with third bottom Hull and haven't won since the 24th of September. Southampton got back to winning ways against their former boss Ronald Koeman on Everton. Charlie Austin netted in under a minute and they held firm for the remaining 89. There was a debut for Josh Sims, who impressed on his first start and Claude Puel will once again have his team well-drilled for this. They have conceded just three goals in their last four away games, although the bare results haven't been great. Injuries are starting to ease and the Saints will surely get something from this encounter.

Spurs v Swansea
Spurs lost their unbeaten start to the season against Chelsea last weekend. They took the lead, but couldn't hold on and eventually Chelsea broke through. Toby Alderweireld and Harry Kane's returns are a timely boost for a side who have been eliminated from the Champions League. They're solid here at White Hart Lane and came from behind to beat West Ham a couple of weeks ago. Some of Spurs' summer signings have not been up to scratch yet and the fans will be hoping they strengthen substantially in January. Spurs have lost their last couple of games in all competitions and will see this as the ideal chance to bounce back. Swansea were involved in a topsy-turvy affair with Crystal Palace last weekend and there are plenty of positives for Bob Bradley to take from their recent performances. There is a certain togetherness about the squad and the American has clearly made his mark. Fernando Llorente looks to be finally living up to his potential in South Wales and scored twice last weekend. He is likely to be given a start here and could ask questions of the Spurs defence.
Back Harry Kane to score anytime at 4/5 & Fernando Llorente to score anytime at 11/4 with Bet365
Stoke v Burnley
Stoke weren't fancied by many to beat Watford, but they caused an upset at Vicarage Road putting in a superb defensive display. Bruno Martins-Indi performed heroics deputising for the absent Ryan Shawcross and will surely get another start here. Mark Hughes' side started the season poorly, gradually improved and have fluctuated between the two since. They somehow lost their last match here to Bournemouth, but stand a good chance of bouncing back against poor travellers Burnley. The Clarets were hammered at the Hawthornes two weeks ago putting in their worst performance of the season. They are yet to collect maximum points on their travels so far, but are very solid at Turf Moor. Sean Dyche's side will work hard for one another and are roared on by the home faithful, but away from home, they often struggle to keep sides out. They've only scored once all season away from Turf Moor and Stoke could be tough to break down once again.

West Brom v Watford
West Brom were close to making it three victories in a row at the weekend but failed to hold onto a lead against a determined Hull side. Gareth McAuley had give the Baggies the lead with a trademark bullet header, but opposite number Michael Dawson fired home for the Tigers. West Brom have significantly improved in recent weeks and put four past Burnley here two weeks ago. It was the second time they've netted four times here and despite his reputation for negative football, Tony Pulis has got his side playing in an attacking style. Nine goals in four home games suggest they are moving in the right direction here and I'm sure there will be more entertainment on offer here. Watford would have been disappointed to lose to Stoke on Sunday. The Hornets had impressed at home beating Manchester United, Hull and Leicester, but they couldn't find a way past a dogged Stoke resistance. They'll be hoping for more luck this time around, but will be without Miguel Britos who was dismissed late on for a second yellow.

Sunderland v Leicester
Sunderland put in a terrific defensive display, but couldn't quite leave Merseyside with a point. Jason Denayer was part of a Sunderland backline who shackled the Reds superbly and kept Jurgen Klopp's side at bay. David Moyes' side have improved dramatically in recent weeks and suddenly appear upwardly mobile. Beating Bournemouth and Hull in quick succession was a fillip and they could follow up with another victory here. The Black Cats will fancy their chances of getting something against an out-of-form Leicester. Claudio Ranieri's side were probably lucky to emerge with a point from their match against Middlesbrough, netting a last minute penalty to level proceedings. They have their final Champions League game on the horizon, but having already qualified, the Italian is likely to prioritise this game. They've netted just five times on the road and have picked up just two points on their travels so far.

West Ham v Arsenal
BT Sport 1
West Ham were much improved against Manchester United at the weekend and deserved their point at Old Trafford. Jose Mourinho was disappointed, but Slaven Bilic will be pleased with his side's effort. The Croatian had been under pressure with the Hammers slipping towards the relegation zone. The injuries are easing for the hosts with Diafra Sakho's return very timely. They are unbeaten in the last four home games in all competitions and will look to restrict Arsenal for as long as possible. West Ham have lost five of the last six meetings here against the Gunners and will want to reverse that statistic on Saturday evening. Arsene Wenger's side picked up all three points against Bournemouth at the weekend thanks to Alexis Sanchez. There could be a slight over-reliance on the Chilean and his fitness is key to their title chances. Arsenal were perhaps a touch fortunate to get a point against Manchester United, but prior to that had won their last four away matches.

Back Alexis Sanchez at 10/11 anytime.
Bournemouth v Liverpool
Sky Sports 1 UK
Bournemouth scored their first ever goal against Arsenal last weekend, but it wasn't enough to collect something from the game. They sit 12th in the Premier League and have lost three of the last four games. Eddie Howe's troops always produce a result to get themselves out of a poor run, but this could be a tough ask. Callum Wilson netted from the penalty spot and he will need to add more goals to his game if the Cherries are to move up the table. Liverpool haven't been at their fluent best of late and have found recent opposition tough to break down. Southampton set up defensively and picked up a deserved point. Sunderland almost did the same, but didn't quite have enough puff to get over the line. Phillipe Coutinho will be missing for at least 6 weeks and the fitness of Adam Lallana remains a concern for this one. Klopp's side will hope the Bournemouth defence is a little more generous and the matchwinner Divock Origi may get a start here.

Everton v Manchester United
Sky Sports 1 UK
Everton are in a rut and it's tough to see them getting out of it. Ronald Koeman is struggling for ideas and his side looked devoid of attacking quality against Southampton. Fans were pleased to welcome the former Southampton manager to Goodison, but he could be under pressure if the results don't start to pick up. Ross Barkley and Phil Jagielka have both underperformed recently and Romelu Lukaku has lacked sharpness. Changes are needed. They still sit 7th in the league, but that's mostly down to their positive start. Saying all of this, they remain unbeaten at Goodison Park with three wins and three draws so far and will fancy their chances of getting something from this game. Manchester United continue to drop points and have drawn four home games in a row for the first time in their history. Jose Mourinho looks rattled and his side simply aren't scoring enough. They've won just two of their last five away games, but they've come against two of the bottom three.

Middlesbrough v Hull
Sky Sports 1 UK
Middlesbrough are sitting just above the relegation zone, but based on their recent performances, Aitor Karanka's should have more than enough to survive. The Teessiders are solid and tough to break down and few sides will beat them at the Riverside. They picked up a point at Leicester last weekend, but were perhaps unlucky not to bag all three. Alvaro Negredo grabbed a couple of goals and will surely come into this tie full of confidence. If he can find the form he showed in La Liga, he could be a real force. Hull picked up a point against West Brom last week and will look to build on that. Josh Tymon impressed and will surely be used again throughout the season. They have lost four of their six away games so far and might find Boro too combative. There are a number of injury concerns for the visitors and they are lacking firepower with Abel Hernandez still injured.
Back Middlesbrough at 3/4 with Bet365
Alvaro Negredo should strike again, back him at 7/5 anytime.
