BetSlip Tips: Goals at the Emirates and Mane’s return?
Arsenal v Watford (Over 2.5)
There have been over 2.5 goals scored in 8 of Arsenal’s last 10 games (Premier League).
Also in the last 8 meetings between these sides there have been over 2.5 goals, so expect goals when there’s two meet today.
Bournemouth v Crystal Palace (Both teams to score)
This pits two of the highest scoring sides in the bottom half against each other. Palace are currently in a rut, winless in 5 while Bournemouth are not known for their stalwart defending. They have also lost a defensive mainstay in Nathan Ake.
Both teams can be expected to get on the score sheet although Palace’s goals seem to be drying there is no doubt they will give this match their all.
Burnley v Leicester (U 2.5)
If anything is going to keep Burnley up this time round it will be their form at Turf Moor. Sean Dyche’s team have picked up all but one of their 26 points at home and have 6 wins from the last 7 there.
Leicester on the other hand are without a win in 13 away matches, a low scoring match seems likely.
Chelsea v Liverpool (Chelsea win)
This one is more difficult to call, Chelsea are in fantastic form while Liverpool would prefer January come to an end quicker.
Chelsea will travel to an Anfield stadium that has seen 3 defeats from the last 3 and though Klopp’s side will no doubt put up a fight, this form is indicative of a larger malaise which will most likely be taken advantage of.
Genk v Oostende (Both teams to score)
Genk have won their last 3 home matches against Oostende in all competitions, they are also five from five in the cup.
Oostende were held to a one all draw in the first leg at home and so they will arrive needing a result. Only Genk (11) have scored more goals in the Belgian cup competition than Oostende (9) and so they have the firepower to disturb but they are unlikely to do more than that.
