Bet on BTTS and Liverpool to win at 9/4 odds

BET NOW

Liverpool hope to overturn a 1-0 deficit at home when they meet Southampton in the second leg of their EFL Cup semi-final clash on Wednesday night.  Liverpool have struggled in their recent matches and suffered another severe blow to their title challenge on Saturday as they surrendered the points to relegation fighters Swansea at home. Fernando Lllorente struck twice within the opening minutes of second half before Roberto Firmino scored a brace to restore parity. But Liverpool had no answer to Gylfi SIggurdsson’s 74th minute strike and tasted defeat at home for the first time this season.

Southampton enjoyed an easy win over defending Premier League champions Leicester after going through four straight defeats. The 3-0 win on Sunday helped Claude Puele’s men avoid five successive league defeats for the first time since 1998 and brought them to the 11th position in the league. The Saints were dominant from the start and went 2-0 up at halftime, thanks to goals from James Ward Prowse and Jay Rodriguez. The Foxes failed to make any impact after the break and conceded yet another goal as Dusan Tadic scored from the penalty spot.

Liverpool vs Southampton Tips

PREDICTION

As we already said, Liverpool seemed off color in their recent outings. Their last three league games have yielded only two points and pushed them to the 10th place in the table; 10 points adrift of leaders Chelsea. They also needed two attempts to see off a second division Plymouth Argyle side in the FA Cup. Southampton haven’t been on great form either. They rejoiced a 3-0 victory at weekend but it came against a team who didn’t win a league game on the road this season. With Van Dijk a doubt and Jose Fonte being sold to West Ham, defending their one goal advantage might not turn out to be easy against the leading goal-scoring side in the Premier League. We are expecting both teams to score in this game and Liverpool to go through.

Stoke vs Everton Betting Tips, Predictions, and Preview

Stoke City will host an in-form Everton side on Wednesday night after a quiet weekend without FA Cup football. Stoke have been in and out of form this season but Mark Hughes won’t be too much disappointed with his side’s position in the table. The Potters are currently ninth in the standings but they missed out on a great opportunity to move within 2 points of 8th placed West Brom when they played out a 1-1 stalemate at home against Manchester United last week. Juan Mata’s 19th minute own goal seemed to be decisive before Wayne Rooney curled in a sublime equalizer in the fourth minute of injury time to earn the Red Devils a share in the spoils.

Manchester United vs Hull Betting Tips, Predictions, and Preview

Manchester United return to Premier League action on Wednesday night after playing two cup ties in four days time. United’s Wednesday visitors Hull City are fresh from their uplifting win over the Red Devils in an EFL Cup semi-final tie last midweek. Jose Mourinho’s men walked into the game with a two goal advantage but failed to establish their command at the KCOM Stadium as the Tigers started strong with a mix of young and promising players in their squad. Omar Niasse and Sam Clucas hit two powerful strikes at David de Gea before Tom Huddlestone scored the first goal for the hosts. Huddlestone made no mistake from the penalty spot after Marcus Rojo was penalized for fouling Harry Maguire inside the penalty box. Manchester United equalized in the 66th minute as Paul Pogba scored his seventh goal for Manchester United. Omar Niasse’s late strike reinstated the lead for Hull but it wasn’t enough to let them through to the final as United won the semifinal on 3-2 aggregate.

West Ham vs Manchester City Betting Tips, Predictions, and Preview

West Ham hope to continue their resurgent form when they host Manchester City on Wednesday night. Slaven Bilic’s men seem to have put aside all the drama involving Dimitri Payet as they fired six goals in their last two games. The Hammers picked up an emphatic 3-1 victory over Middlesbrough last week, becoming only the second team to have scored three goals at the Riverside Stadium this season. Andy Carroll had only two touches inside the Middlesbrough box during the whole game but managed to score in both instances to put his team 2-1 ahead at the interval. Middlesbrough came back strong in the second half but Christian Stuani’s first half strike remained the only consolation for the home-side as Jonathan Calleri scored his first goal for West Ham in the stoppage time to pile more misery on the Boro.

Liverpool vs Chelsea Betting Tips, Predictions, and Preview

Antonio Conte visits Anfield with his high-flying Chelsea side on Tuesday night with a view to avenging their home defeat to Liverpool earlier this season. A win in the crunch clash will also see them 13 points clear off Jurgen Klopp’s side and maintain their 8 point lead at the top even though nearest rivals Arsenal manage to win against Watford the same day. Diego Costa, who reportedly had a fall-out with his manager and demanding an exit in summer, showed no lack of concentration as he netted the ball in the first half injury time from a Victor Moses cross. It was the Spaniard’s 15th goal of the season, highest in the Premier League. However, maintaining the lead was no cakewalk for Antonio Conte’s men as they were repeatedly ambushed by Hull from counter-attacks. Gary Cahill secured the points in the 81st minute when he flicked a header into the Hull goal from a Cesc Fabregas free-kick.

Bournemouth vs Crystal Palace Betting Tips, Predictions, and Preview

Bournemouth eye a return to winning ways when they host Sam Allardyce’s Crystal Palace on Tuesday night. Eddie Howe’s men are winless in their last four matches and should consider themselves lucky to escape with a point from their last week encounter with Watford. It was Walter Mazzarri’s men who started off on the right foot at Vitality Stadium and instilled panic into the Bournemouth backline. The visitors were awarded for their persistent pressing and took the lead midway through the first half. Christian Kabasele rightfully punished the Cherrie’s for their poor marking as his header went in from a Jose Holebas corner. Joshua King threw the homeside a lifeline by netting the ball from an Adam Smith cross. But the hosts were put to the sword once again as Troy Deeney headed home from another corner. In spite of their defensive errors, Bournemouth looked threatening on attack and continued to probe the opposition half for an equalizer. After a series of attacks, it was substitute Benik Afobe who scored the equalizer late into the game. The draw left Bournemouth with only one win in their last seven games and just outside the top half of the table.

Sunderland vs Tottenham Betting Tips, Predictions, and Preview

Rock bottom Sunderland will host Tottenham Hotspurs on Tuesday night hoping for an upset to kick-start a move out of the drop zone. David Moyes’s men have been regular residents of the relegation zone since September and the manager is very much aware that the next few matches might define the future for his team. The Black Cats produced another impotent display last week as they suffered a 2-0 defeat against West Brom at Hawthorns. Sunderland failed to create clear cut opportunities and were ruled out of the game within the first 36 minutes as the Baggies raced up to a 2-0 lead. David Moyes attempted a three men backline, probably being inspired by Chelsea and Tottenham, but it didn’t prove much useful for him.

Burnley vs Leicester Betting Tips, Predictions, and Preview

Burnley welcome Premier League champions Leicester City to the fortress they built at Turf Moor for Tuesday’s Premier League action. The Clarets have ensured 25 out of 36 points available at home and have proved to be a formidable force to be dealt with at Turf Moor. Sean Dyche’s men are currently 10 points clear off the drop zone and seem like a safe bet for Premier League survival. They have picked up only one point on the road and came agonizingly close to ensure their second away point last week but was denied by a last minute penalty from Alexis Sanchez. Burnley forward Andre Gray had leveled the game in the injury time by scoring from the penalty spot against his boyhood dream club. But Arsenal were thrown a lifeline by referee Jon Moss when he awarded them a penalty in the final minute of injury time for a foul on Laurent Koscielny. Sanchez kept his cool and sent the ball to the net, scoring his 15th Premier League goal of the season. Earlier, Shkodran Mustafi scored his first Arsenal goal to give Arsenal the lead.

Middlesbrough vs West Brom Betting Tips, Predictions, and Preview

Middlesbrough would be hoping for a far better outcome after their 3-1 defeat to West Ham at home last week, when they entertain West Brom on Tuesday night. The score-line suggests absolute domination from West Ham throughout the game but actually, Middlesbrough were the ones who enjoyed long spells of possession. They couldn’t make much out of their 60%+ possession and 27 crosses into the opposition box. The visitors took the lead in the ninth minute when Andy Carroll pounded a bullet header into the net from a Manuel Lanzini corner. Boro were quick to react and pulled themselves level as Christian Stuani scored from Callum Chambers’ cross. Adama Traore threatened to steal the lead for the hosts a couple of times but it was West Ham once again, who took the lead. Andy Carroll scored in the brink of half time to make it 2-1 for the Hammers. Middlesbrough dominated the entire second half but failed to find their way back into the game. On the contrary, Jonathan Calleri scored in the injury time to rub salt into Middlesbrough’s wounds.

Swansea vs Southampton Betting Tips, Predictions, and Preview

After relishing a historic win at Anfield, the Swans are back on home to face Claude Puele’s Southampton on Tuesday night. Last week’s win over Liverpool was Paul Clement’s first win after taking over on January 3rd. Clement should be overwhelmed by the character his team had shown to outplay Liverpool. Fernando Llorente scored twice in a four minute spell two earn the visitors a 2-0 lead in the 52nd minute. Roberto Firmino responded with a brace to restore temporary parity which was decisively broken by Gylfi Sigurdsson’s 74th minute goal. The win dragged Swansea out of the drop zone and moved them to the 17th position.

Arsenal vs Watford Betting Tips, Predictions, and Preview

Arsenal might get a golden opportunity to cut the gap with Chelsea ahead of their clash with their West London rivals, when they host a striving Watford on Tuesday night. Chelsea will be visiting Anfield at the same time and if Jorgen Klopp’s men succeed to beat Chelsea, a win against Watford would see Arsenal standing within five points of the Blues. Arsenal kept their Premier League title ambitions alive in the most dramatic way last game-week, when Alexis Sanchez secured the points for his team through a majestic 98th minute Panenka from the penalty spot. The Chilean’s goal came five minutes after Andre Gray leveled the score from a penalty and seemed to have ensured a share in the points for Burnley. Earlier, Shkodran Mustafi scored his first goal for Arsenal to give them the lead. The German outmuscled Stephen Ward to meet Mesut Ozil’s corner in the near post and headed it past Tom Heaton in the bottom corner. But Granit Xhaka’s 65th minute dismissal for a double footed tackle on Steven Defour granted a one match advantage for the visitors. However, the home side managed to fend off the Clarets before the injury time dramatics. The win sent Arsenal second in the league but still they are trailing top positioned Chelsea by a substantial 8 point margin.

Manchester United vs Wigan Betting Tips, Predictions, and Preview

Manchester United will play their second cup tie in four days time when they host Wigan Athletic on Sunday afternoon. Jose Mourinho’s men’s 17 match unbeaten run were brought to an end by an impressive Hull City at midweek but they still managed to qualify for the final, winning the semifinal 3-2 on aggregate. The Red Devils are unbeaten in all competitions since September and they should expect their unbeaten run against Wigan, who are striving for survival in Championship football. The Latics have won their last two games in the Championship but still, they are 21st in the table and the relegation threat still looms large. Mourinho have shown that he doesn’t treat this matches lightly and is expected to field a strong squad against Wigan to ensure progress to the next round of the competition.

Liverpool vs Wolves Betting Tips, Predictions, and Preview

Liverpool will host another cup tie on Saturday after their disappointing exit from the EFL Cup semifinal at midweek. The lunchtime kick-off will see the Reds take on Championship side Wolverhampton Wanderers, who sit 18th in the Championship standings. This might be the perfect opportunity for Jurgen Klopp’s men to lift up their morale ahead of a crunch clash against Chelsea on Tuesday night. Even though Liverpool had a horrible start to 2017, they would still be favorites to get the job done against the Wolves who aren’t in prime form either. Wolverhampton enter the fray after a 3-1 defeat to Norwich last week. The Wolves were also unlucky in their last three confrontations with Liverpool, having lost each of them and scoring only once.

Manager Mark Phelan has made his mark by defeating Swansea in the FA Cup and Bournemouth in the following week. The Tigers travelled to London at weekend to face the top placed Chelsea and produced an admirable endeavour to derail the Blues’ title charge. The match ended in 2-0 for the West Londoners but Chelsea were often cornered by a Hull attack who were missing their nucleus figure Robert Snodgrass.
