• Manchester United looking to easily overcome Sunderland
• West Hama and Crystal Palace set for a great game
• Aston Villa have recorded disappointing results so far
West Ham will be tested against Crystal Palace at home while Burnley will try to climb out of the relegation zone against Swansea. Manchester United will have an opportunity to make progress up the table when they go head to head with Sunderland at Old Trafford. And finally we will also take a look at the game between Newcastle and Aston Villa.
West Ham vs Crystal Palace and Burnley vs Swansea
West Ham have performed quite well this season considering the current crop of players they have at their disposal. They sit in 8th place with 39 points and will be aiming to add a few more points to their current tally and improve their standing against Crystal Palace. While playing at home they have managed to notch 7 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses, so it makes sense for Bet365 to favor 2.05 (12/11) them for the upcoming clash.
Crystal Palace have not enjoyed a very successful spell this campaign as they now sit in 13th place with 27 points. Over the last 5 encounters they have secured 2 wins, while the rest of the games ended in 1 draw and 2 losses. Due to their bad run mobile betting providers have decided to brand them as underdogs 3.75 (11/4) for the upcoming match. A draw between the two has been set at 3.40 (12/5).
Burnley got promoted from the Championship last season, however they have endured a very difficult time adjusting to the Premier League and are likely to be demoted back to the second division of English football after the season ends. Now they find themselves in 18th place with 22 points and have recorded 3 losses and 2 draws in the last five games they entered.
Swansea on the other hand lie in 9th with an overall of 37 points. While playing on the road they have secured 3 wins, 3 draws and 6 losses, stats that re not very convincing however they should be able to overcome Burnley on Saturday. Bet365 has Swansea odds of 2.75 (7/4) for a win, whereas the hosts have been dealt chances of 2.60 (8/5). A draw stands at 3.30 (23/10), an event that can also happen.
Manchester United vs Sunderland and Newcastle vs Aston Villa
Manchester United will host Sunderland and judging by the performances of the hosts in recent games, they should be able to clinch the all-important 3 points. The Red Devils have slipped to 4th place and they now boast 47 points while maintaining a home record of 10 wins, 1 draw and only 2 losses. Bet365 has branded as absolute favorites 1.33 (1/3) for the upcoming clash.
Sunderland don’t really have a fighting chance to clinch a victory and the best result they can hope for is a draw, which stands at an unlikely 5.00 (4/1). They sit in 16th position with only 25 points and have recorded 2 losses, 2 draws and only 1 win while playing in the last 5 encounters. Bet365 has therefore decided to give them highly unlikely chances 10.00 (9/1).
Newcastle will square off against Aston Villa in a game that should see the former side win the encounter. The Toon currently occupy 11th place and have notched 5 wins, 4 draws and 3 losses while playing on their own ground.Online sportsbooks in UK have identified them as favorites 1.95 (10/11) for the game, while the visiting side have been assigned limited chances 4.00 (3/1).
Aston Villa is currently undergoing some very tough times, as they lie in 19th position and have managed to accumulate only 22 points so far. In addition, they also lost each one of their last 5 games, which makes them unlikely to win their upcoming match. A draw between Newcastle and Aston Villa has been set at 3.50 (5/2), which is unlikely given recent performances.
