Liverpool vs Chelsea – Predictions and Betting Tips for Sunday

Liverpool vs Chelsea predictions and betting tips for Sunday, 27th April in the Premier League, free Liverpool v Chelsea tips this weekend.

Liverpool could virtually seal their first League title since the black and white days of 1990 with a victory over Chelsea on Sunday afternoon and sadly I think they will do so.

Their price has collapsed to best priced 7/10 with Coral since Jose has threatened that he will field a weakened side as he has an eye on the all-important second last clash with Atlético. Should he carry out his spineless promise and they lose, then hopefully the blues will suffer the same fate and get dumped out of Europe as well.

Given the odds on price for the Liverpool win I was looking at the Suarez/Liverpool win price but given the fact he doesn’t score against any decent teams that is overlooked in favour of a 9/2 betting tip in the same market. Raheem Shaquille Sterling has been playing well in recent weeks scoring four goals in his last eight matches and scaring teams with his fast direct approach. Given the injuries in Chelsea’s defence and their less than mobile midfield he will cause problems and get in many goals scoring positions. He isn’t afraid to shoot and with 77 year old Mark Schwarzer in goal he can easily get a goal. At 9/2 with Ladbrokes for Sterling to score and Liverpool to win that’s the first Liverpool v Chelsea betting prediction.

Sticking with Sterling, of the four goals he has scored, two have been the first of the game, Bet365 go 9/1 for this to happen. We’ll back him e/w as they pay unlimited places should he score but not bag the first.

Finally we opt for a bet which has won 11 times out of the last 17 matches at Anfield and that is for a Liverpool win with over 2.5 Goals. Given the above ratio it’s somewhat surprising that this is priced up at 27/20 with Ladbrokes.

Aston Villa not to lose away to Cardiff

The match from the 26th round of the Premier League between Aston Villa and Cardiff will be played on Tuesday at 20.45 local time. Cardiff is on the second to last place in the current standings with 21 points. Aston Villa has six points more for now, which means that an eventual victory for the away team tonight will be decisive for their salvation among the best teams in England.

The appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as a manager of Cardiff didn’t gave the major boost the Welsh needed to come off from the bottom. The Norwegian, who recorded great results as a manager of Molde recorded five losses in his first six matches in the team.

The style of the team was not improved too as Cardiff continued to perform poorly and didn’t create enough goal attempts. In the last six Premier League matches the players from Cardiff have scored only four goals, which is not good at all.

Aston Villa is with two straight losses and six in the last ten matches they have played in the Premier League. This is a result that is more than unconvincing for the team, although Villa leads the group of teams that are fighting to escape relegation. Nevertheless, Aston Villa has players in the squad like Christian Benteke and Gabriel Agbonlahor that can decide a match against Cardiff with just one touch.

This is exactly why it is not strange that the big bookmakers offer odds for a match between equal teams. Bet365 favors the hosts as they offer odds for their victory of 2.5 versus 3 for an away win. The bookie’s proposal for a draw is 3.4.

Much lower coefficient for a draw is proposed by William Hill as it is only 3.1. The same rate is the eventual victory for Aston Villa, but the home team’s chances in this match are estimated at 2.4.

bet-at-home offers rates as follows 2.3, 3.3 and 3 for a home win, a draw and a victory for the visitors in the match.

I personally don’t see how Aston Villa will lose this match, although honestly I don’t see how they will win it. That’s why I would bet the home not to win. The highest odds for this bet comes with the bookmakers 12BET, 5Dimes and Dafabet and is 1.63.

Magpies to test the Gunners on Tyneside

he Magpies will be looking to not only dent Arsenal’s title challenge on Tyneside on the weekend, but all get themselves in the hunt for a top four place. A win for the Magpies would see them move to within just three points of leader’s Arsenal. The Gunners took their first win in four on Boxing Day but this is going to be another big test of their mettle.

The Magpies are in a pretty good stride after posting a comfortable 5-1 win over Stoke at St James Park on Boxing Day. There has been a return of eight goals in their last two games now from the Magpies and both Loic Remy and Yohan Cabaye have two in their last two. The latter has scored in three of his last four and is worth a look in the Anytime Goalscorer market at 4/1. Remy is a lot closer to the top of the market at a price of 2/1 for the Magpies. So with seven wins in their last nine matches now, Alan Pardew’s men are not going to fear this one. In that run the have beaten Chelsea, Spurs and Manchester United, so Arsenal shouldn’t faze them really. The Magpies have been good at home this season, posting five wins, three draws and just the one defeat. They may have been going along quietly for some, but they have scored at a rate of almost two per game at home this term.

Only in one of their last seven home matches in the Premier League have Newcastle failed to put at least two goals on the board. That should present a pretty big challenge to Arsenal. Newcastle are unbeaten in their last six at St James Park now. There is certainly enough in Newcastle’s form at the moment to suggest that they are capable of taking all three points here. It would be a turnaround in form, as they haven’t scored in their last two home games against the Gunners, and haven’t taken a win against Arsenal in the last five attempts. Arsene Wenger’s men snapped a three match winless streak in the top flight with a comeback 3-1 win over West Ham at Upton Park on Boxing Day. The Gunners have been looking a bit tired and leggy through December and really haven’t risen up to the challenge of some tougher matches. The West Ham game had became so important for Arsene Wenger that he only made one chance from the previous 0-0 draw against Chelsea instead of rotating his squad.

Arsenal have been decent on the road this term, winning six, drawing one and losing two. Those two defeats have come in their last four away games though (at Man City and Man United). They may need to get Olivier Giroud firing again, as the Frenchman hasn’t netted since November 23rd in the Premier League, a six match barren streak. Arsenal have averaged two goals per game against over their last four matches, so you can see goals coming in this one and Over 2.5 Goals is trading at 8/11 with Stan James. The Gunners still managed to hold on to top spot after Boxing Day, but the pressure is increasing all of the time. Do they have the legs to sustain themselves? There will be big questions asked of them of them on Sunday. They are unbeaten in their last seven visits to St James Park in all competitions though. Good enough for a point perhaps? Both Teams To Score offers some value at price of 4/6 it is isn’t a bad option at all in a game which really could go either way.

There does look to be some straight forward betting options in this one and some may be surprised that Newcastle go as underdogs in this one. The good news in that, is that there is brilliant 5/6 value at Stan James in a Newcastle-Draw Double Chance bet.
