Premier League Game Week 20 Tips & Preview

We’re set for a gruelling 15 hour wait between the end of Game Week 19 to the opening whistle of Game Week 20.

The round kicks off with a couple of Aussies in action as Brighton welcomes the Cherries to Amex Stadium.

Elsewhere, the Spurs bid to break there way into the top four when they take on the league whipping boys Norwich, Liverpool face a tricky contest at home to the Wolves, while Chelsea and Arsenal both look to get back to winning ways in a highly anticipated London Derby.

I’ve provided my best bet for every match across GW20 below.

Brighton v bournemouth
Draw $3.50

Bournemouth look to build on a solid showing against the Gunners when they travel to Brighton to kickoff GW20.

Both sides are only one loss away from the relegation zone and will be see this as a huge opportunity to earn three points.

Brighton are out to create history as they have never bettered the Cherries in the Premier League.

Neither side presents a strong case in their fixture, with a draw looking a likely outcome. 

Southampton v crystal palace
SGM: Palace or Draw + Under 2.5 Goals $2.69

Both Southampton and Palace collected impressive wins over Chelsea and West Ham respectively on Boxing Day.

The Saints have dragged themselves out of the drop zone following an impressive run of form which has seen them win four from their last six matches.

The Eagles have also been flying with one loss from their last six off the back of their resolute defence, only conceding three goals over that spell.

Roy Hodgson’s side have been outstanding on the road this season and I can see them stifling the Saints go forward.

 

Newcastle v Everton
Everton to Win $2.10

Ancelotti is out to improve on his perfect record at the helm of the Toffees.

Everton were in total control throughout their match against Burnley and were unlucky not to rack up a cricket scoreline.

The Toons were humbled by a youth inspires Man United side, Steve Bruce’s side were unable to hold out the fiery Red Devils after going 1-nil up early on.

Everton are undefeated in four matches and are playing with enough confidence and energy to see off the Toons in Newcastle. 

watford v aston villa
Watford to Win $2.00

Stinker alert. 

18th plays 19th in the Drop Zone Derby.

Aston Villa scrapped past bottom of the table Norwich in GW19 off the back of another huge performance from club captain Jack Grealish.

Watford picked up a point away to Sheffield, the Hornets have looked the goods since the arrival of Nigel Pearson and should edge out the Villans at home.

norwich v tottenham
SGM: Spurs to Win + Kane to Score $2.47

Norwich find themselves ion the bottom of the PL ladder after a gutless performance against the Villans on Boxing Day.

Tottenham on the other hand are knocking on the door to the top four after overrunning a one goal deficit against the Seagulls last round.

The Spurs are progressing well under Jose’s rule and should see off the Canaries with relative ease.

west ham v leicester
Leicester to Win $1.83

West Ham crashed to defeat against Palace following an injury time winner from Jordan Ayew.

The Hammers have looked anything bar convincing across the opening 19 game weeks and will need to improve substantially if they harbour any desire to finish close to the top 8.

Leicester’s hopes of challenging Liverpool for the title were all but ended as the Foxes were dismantled by Klopp’s men in a 4-nil defeat.

Despite two straight losses, the Foxes outclass the Hammers across every part of the ground and should claim all three points in this one.

Burnley v Manchester United
United to Win $1.83

Burnley showed little to no fight in their loss to Everton in Game Week 19, Sean Dyche’s men have claimed a couple of lowly scalps over the past months but have been largely ineffective against sides within the top half of the table.

Man United rebounded from a disappointing trip to Watford to completely tear apart the Toons at Old Trafford. 

Young stars Greenwood, Martial and Rashford were all amongst the goals as the Red Devils fired four past Martin Dúbravka.

Paul Pogba is set to return to Ole’s starting XI providing United the edge they need to grab all three points on offer at Turf Moor.

Arsenal v Chelsea
Chelsea to Win $2.35

Arsenal started life under Arteta with a 1-1 draw away to Bournemouth, the Gunners created the lions share of chance but lack conviction in front of goals.

Chelsea fell to a disappointing defeat at home to the Saints, Frank Lampard was guilty of changing too many pieces in his starting XI and his side never looked settled.

I’m expecting the Blues to revert back to a 4-3-3 for their trip to the Emirates, with a front three of Abraham, Pulisic and Willian to prove too potent for the Gunners defence to contain.

liverpool v wolves
SGM: Liverpool to Win + Both Teams to Score $2.96

Liverpool are seemingly unbeatable this season, Klopp’s army traveled to King Power Stadium and proceeded to pull down the Foxes pants in-front of their home fans.

The Wolves are in impressive form themselves only tasting defeat on three* occasions this season. *(At time of writing)

Nuno’s side have not been kept scoreless since Game Week 1, with fixtures piling up the Reds defensive depth is dangerously thin.

I’m tipping the Reds to out gun the Wolves in a high scoring affair. 

Manchester City v Sheffield United
SGM: City to Win + Under 3.5 Goals $2.35

Since losing to cross town rivals United, Man City have shifted up a few gears especially star man Kevin De Bruyne.

The Blades are in impressive nick themselves, the PL newcomers have lost just once since GW8 and have only conceded more than two goals on one occasion.

City have the quality to get the job done against Blades but will be made to work for it.
