Back to Domestic Matters
After the small matter of the UEFA Champions and Europa League, it’s back to domestic action for England’s Premier League big guns, but with Chelsea currently languishing in 17th
, Leicester hitting the heights of 2nd
, and Liverpool flailing in mid-table, the need for the advice of the best football tipsters around has never been so crucial. We look at three of the weekend’s most intriguing match-ups.
Chelsea V Arsenal, Saturday 19/09/15 at 12.45 GMT
The biggest match of the weekend sees a meeting between two of England’s biggest clubs and bitter London rivals who often find themselves battling for honours at the top of the Premier League table. However, while Arsenal sit comfortably in 4th
, Chelsea have had a nightmare start to the campaign which has seen Jose Mourinho fall out with everybody, most notably the club’s own doctors, rival coaches and numerous journalists.. Chelsea desperately need a victory in this London derby to prevent the gap to the top becoming chasm-like, while Arsenal will be looking to bounce back after an unexpected shock defeat in Zagreb in the Champions League on Wednesday night. Willian and Pedro are doubts for the Blues, while Petr Cech will be facing his old club for the first time. Arsene Wenger will be looking for his first ever victory over Jose Mourinho in the Premier League, after securing a first victory of any nature over the Portuguese from 14 attempts in August’s Community Shield . Everyone has an opinion on this weekend’s big game, but it’s the top football tipsters’ that matter. Visit Betadvisor.com.
Chelsea 2.30, Draw 3.50, Arsenal 3.10
Newcastle V Watford, Saturday 19/09/15 at 15.00 GMT
Any positivity Newcastle fans had brought into the season with a new manager (ex-England boss SteveMcClaren) has quickly dissipated after the club’s lacklustre start to the season which has seen them yet to win. On Saturday they surely won’t get a better chance than against one of the newly-promoted clubs, albeit one who seem to have adapted reasonably comfortably to life in the top flight. The Hornets also have a new coach in place, Spaniard Quique Sanchez Flores the latest in the managerial merry-go-round that is Vicarage Road, but it has been a positive start for the club with their only defeat to date coming away at leaders Manchester City. If Watford have already exceeded expectations, it is about time the Magpies started to match those of their long suffering supporters – surely a win is the only option to prevent further doubts surrounding the Geordie faithful and the wisdom of MCClaren’s appointment after he spectacularly failed to nail a play-off spot with Derby in the Championship last year?The Magpies’ Aleksander Mitrovic and the visitors’ Valon Behrami and Miguel Britos all miss out through suspension as the away side look for their first victory at St James’ Park in the league since 1981 – this could be their best opportunity to break that duck.

Newcastle 2.50, Draw 3.30, Watford 3.10
Liverpool V Norwich, Sunday 20/09/15 at 16.00 GMT
Another match where the two protagonists involved enter proceedings with very different emotions. Liverpool have had a particularlyindifferent start and will still be licking their wounds after their defeat at Old Trafford last week. You can’t help feel that Liverpool have gone backwards since their outstanding performances of two seasons ago almost catapulted them to the title, and the feeling also remains that without the impact of Luis Suarez, Raheem Sterling, Steven Gerrard and Daniel Sturridge, the talented nucleus of that side is missing. For that reason, the new signings at Anfield really need to step up if this campaign is going to deliver anything more than last season’s crawl to 6th
. Norwich, on the other hand, are fresh from their victory over Bournemouth last time out, and sit above their hosts on goal-difference. Like the two matches above, this is another game where a home defeat can only contribute to questions surrounding the management and summer transfer policy of the respective hosts. Brendan Rodgers will be delighted to be able to call on Phillipe Countinho again after suspension, while Norwich are able to recall Steven Whittaker for similar reasons. Liverpool remain unbeaten in their last ten against the Canaries, including nine wins. For the best football tips from the best football tipsters, it has to be Betadvisor.com.
