The excitement never stops as the Premier League 2017/18 story continues with a new round of fixtures in the 1st three days of the New Year. We are here to analyze the most interesting matches and find the best value for your football betting.
Burnley vs. Liverpool
Burnley are winless in their last 4 EPL matches but despite that they are still sitting in a stunning 7th place with 34 points earned in 21 rounds. From the other side, the Reds are in excellent form being unbeaten in their last 15 matches in all competitions. They came back from one goal down to win their clash against Leicester 2-1 and close the gap on the top spots. Liverpool have been scoring goals for fun this term with Mo Salah being their main attacking weapon. He netted 17 goals in 21 rounds sitting 2nd in the EPL top scorers chart but unfortunately for Liverpool, he picked up a knock against Leicester having trouble walking as he left the pitch. It seems doubtful that he will be used against Burnley at Turf Moor, so the scoring responsibility will surely fall on Firminho’s shoulders. Burnley suffered just 1 loss in their last 5 EPL fixtures but Liverpool are likely to produce another amazing performance and win this away game to maintain the pressure on Manchester United and Chelsea. Best pick for the match: Liverpool to win and over 2.5 goals in the match at +125 with Coral.
Everton vs. Manchester United
The Toffees suffered their 1st loss under Sam Allardyce last round away at Bournemouth placing them 9th in the standings with 27 points earned this season so far. Their poor form continues as they are winless in their last three EPL fixtures dropping points with Chelsea and West Brom in the process and struggling to find the back of the net scoring just 1 goal in their last 3 matches. From the other side, the Red Devils lost their 2nd place in the standings after 3 back-to-back draws against Leicester, Burnley and Southampton. Not just that but their main striker Romelu Lukaku suffered a head injury against Southampton getting treatment for several minutes on the pitch and being ruled out for this clash. Jose Mourinho will be forced to use Marcus Rashford in the attack as Zlatan Ibrahimovic is also ruled out for a month. Both teams have a defensive approach trying to keep a clean sheet and score on the break, so this encounter should not be a scoring thriller. Best pick for the match: Under 2.25 goals AH (Asian Handicap) at -119 with 10Bet.
Swansea vs. Tottenham
Swansea are fighting to avoid relegation sitting 19th in the standings with just 16 points earned in 21 rounds. They enter this match full of confidence and determined to escape the danger zone after their crucial win 2-1 away at Watford. On the other side, Tottenham bounced back after their 1-4 defeat away at Manchester City with 2 convincing victories against Burnley and Southampton. Tottenham’s Harry Kane broke the Premier League record for most goals in a calendar year, netting 39 goals in 2017. We expect him to continue his amazing form and find the back of the net also against Swansea on Tuesday at Liberty Stadium. He is priced at +210 with William Hill to be the 1st goalscorer in the match. This is a must-win for the Spurs as they are eyeing a top 4-finish and a Champions League spot at the end of the season. They should have enough to win this match in style and cover the Asian Handicap lines. Best pick for the match: Tottenham to win with -1.5 AH at -107 with Unibet.
