Sunday’s live Premier League games start with Bournemouth hosting Southampton. The Saints make the short journey along the south coast to square off in what looks like a mid table 6 pointer. The Cherries who may have been some peoples fancy to go down this season find themselves in 10th spot just one behind Southampton and level on points.
The winner of this tie could find themselves as high as 7th spot depending on other results this weekend. Bournemouth have recent wins over Liverpool and champions Leicester but lost to Burnley in between these. Southampton themselves are also inconsistent with a recent draw with Stoke, a victory over Middlesbrough and a 3-0 defeat to Crystal Palace. This is such a tough one to call so don’t let us change your mind if you fancy something but I think there is a bit of value in the home side with @2/1 available generally my bet would be Bournemouth HT/FT @4/1 with Ladbrokes.
The afternoon game is a big one which sees 4th Vs 3th with Man City taking on Arsenal in what looks to be a juicy encounter. City are without their hit-man Sergio Aguero who is suspended following his horror tackle which caused mayhem against Chelsea a couple of games back. Fernandinho is also still suspended following his red card in the same game. Club Captain Kompany and Gundogan are expected to miss out with knee injuries which could give the edge to Arsenal. They themselves have a few injuries but their big guns are all fit including the in form Alexis Sanchez who looks set to lead the line again. You can get @5/2 with Ladbrokes on a Gunners win which I think is good value and Sanchez to score first is best price with Paddy Power @6/1 to score the first goal.
The 3rd Sunday game which is not live is Tottenham against Burnley. Although the Clarets boast some big wins this season over the likes of Everton and Liverpool and a draw at Old Trafford they have won only once in their last 5 games and seem to be in a bit of a free fall at the moment. Spurs who have recent big loses to Chelsea and Man Utd still seem to know how to beat the sides they are expected too. We see no difference here and it should be a comfortable home win. Spurs @2/9 with Ladbrokes is best price but that’s a little short for us so Total Tottenham goals Over 2.5 @10/11 with Ladbrokes is where we will be investing.
