The following are betting tips for selected fixtures in Gameweek 11 of the 2019/20 English Premier League.
Bournemouth vs. Manchester United
Bournemouth bring 0-1-3 form into this clash and they haven’t scored a goal in their last three games. One of those games was against Norwich, who are among the worst defences in the league. Man Utd defeated Norwich 3-1 last week despite missing two penalties. The week before that they drew Liverpool to become the first side to take points off the league leaders. Man Utd have won their last four straight against Bournemouth and their last three straight at Dean Court.
Back Man Utd +0.5 at 1.40 (Betfair)
Man Utd are unbeaten in their last seven clashes with Bournemouth.
Brighton vs. Norwich
Back Brighton in the head-to-head at 1.77 (Betfair)
Norwich have gone 0-1-4 away from home this season and they have been held scoreless in four of those games. This doesn’t bode well for a team that is conceding 2.4 goals per game on average. Goalkeeper Tim Krul’s heroics last week prevented an ugly blowout in their 3-1 defeat to Man Utd, but he will undergo scans on an injured knee this week and might not feature. Brighton will enter this clash high on confidence after winning their previous two home fixtures against Tottenham 3-0 and Everton 3-2.
Back Brighton -1.5 at 3.10 (Betfair)
All four of Norwich’s away defeats this season have been by more than a goal.
Back Brighton to win to nil at 3.25 (BetEasy)
Three of Norwich’s away four defeats this season were to nil while 3 of Brighton’s 5 home wins over the last 12 months were to nil.
Sheffield Utd vs. Burnley
Back Under 2.5 goals at 1.66 (bet365)
Both Sheffield United and Burnley are well organised units that make themselves hard to break down. Sheffield United in particular are a tough nut to crack (0.8 goals per game), while at the same time they are only scoring 0.9 goals on average. Eight of their ten EPL fixtures this season have gone under 2.5 goals, including the last six straight.
Aston Villa vs. Liverpool
Back Liverpool in the head-to-head at 1.38 (Unibet)
Liverpool have gone 18-1-0 in their last 19 EPL fixtures and they have won their last five straight visits to Villa Park. Aston Villa have picked up three wins this season but they have gone 0-0-3 against the big six clubs.
Six of Liverpool’s last nine EPL fixtures have resulted in 2-1 or 3-1 scorelines.
Watford vs. Chelsea
Back Chelsea in the head-to-head at 1.71 (Betfair) – BEST BET
Watford are winless in their last nine home fixtures and they have scored just one goal in their last five games. They currently sit bottom of the table with 5 points. Chelsea have won their last six away fixtures in all competitions and they have scored 16 goals (3, 5, 4, 4) in their last four EPL away fixtures. Chelsea completed the double over Watford last season and have won 5 of their last 6 fixtures against the Hornets.
