Premier League predictions: Leicester can pounce on ponderous Chelsea

Our betting skilled Jones Knows is again with some midweek prediction motion and thinks Leicester are completely geared up to pounce on ponderous Chelsea.

West Ham vs West Brom, Tuesday 6pm (Play Super 6 right here!)

So, it occurred. Sam Allardyce discovered a formulation and has shoehorned gamers into taking part in his approach.

Not solely did they defend at Wolves in typical Allardyce vogue, particularly within the second half, they carried a risk in ahead areas with Callum Robinson providing an athletic outlet to play the counter-attacking model that Allardyce needs to be applied. Matheus Pereira caught my eye too in a efficiency of actual be aware. Allardyce has noticed his expertise and given him a licence to play very excessive and central in help of Robinson. The interchanging between that front-line will give West Ham issues on this one.

The Hammers are unbeaten in 5 video games now however stay a crew to deal with with warning, particularly in opposition to deep defences. Burnley, uncharacteristically, gifted Michail Antonio the opening aim on Saturday which then allowed David Moyes’ facet to play extra on the break and take in stress. The good state of affairs.

West Brom will provide rather more in transition than Burnley did while additionally defending deep on the different finish. I’m but to really be satisfied that West Ham are a top-10 facet on this league, due to this fact, the 4/7 for a house win appears to be like brief and I’m joyful to get a assured Baggies onside within the double likelihood market, particularly with Conor Gallagher prone to return in midfield.

JONES KNOWS PREDICTS: 1-1 (8/1 with Sky Bet)

ALSO LOOK OUT FOR: Matheus Pereira to have a shot on goal & West Brom to keep away from defeat (7/2 with Sky Bet) & Aaron Creswell to have a shot on goal from outdoors the realm (7/1 with Sky Bet) – learn why right here!

Leicester vs Chelsea, Tuesday 8pm, stay on Sky Sports Premier League (Play Super 6 right here!)

Leicester City

Tuesday nineteenth January 8:00pm

Kick off 8:15pm

Never have the probabilities of a crew successful a soccer match hinged a lot on the provision of 1 participant. Many punters can have been ready with bated breath, like me, for Brendan Rodgers’ press convention concerning the health of Jamie Vardy. The line that the striker is match to play was music to my ears as Leicester at 2/1 are a implausible betting alternative with Vardy match.

Leicester are completely drilled to beat a ponderous possession-focused crew like Chelsea. Under Rodgers, we have now seen time and time once more that the Foxes are far more practical in video games after they aren’t required to make the operating.

Without possession, they’re a harmful beast on the counter as proven by successful six of their seven matches this season when having lower than 50 per cent of the ball. Chelsea will fall into that lure right here.

Chelsea fairly merely can’t be relied on away from residence. They made such heavy climate in ending off 10-man Fulham on the weekend with their artistic gamers all wanting devoid of confidence. The Blues have misplaced 10 of their 28 Premier League away video games below Frank Lampard – a report which may simply worsen come Tuesday night.

JONES KNOWS PREDICTS: 2-0 (10/1 with Sky Bet)

Manchester City vs Aston Villa, Wednesday 6pm

Dean Smith’s boys are again in match motion this week after greater than a fortnight off because of the Covid outbreak and I’m anticipating them to proceed the place they left off, taking part in courageous, attack-minded soccer.

Aston Villa proceed to be underestimated by the betting markets, even on this recreation, and their efficiency information places them proper within the combine for a top-six end. In reality, taking a look at anticipated targets, each offensively and defensively, it ranks them down because the league’s fourth-best crew.

  • Who will win the Premier League title?

Despite City’s imperious type, Pep Guardiola’s facet look woefully brief at 1/5 with Sky Bet for the victory. It’s nonetheless not fairly flowing for City within the last third to the degrees that the markets have them priced up as. In their previous two fixtures they’ve scored the primary aim at essential instances vs Brighton and Crystal Palace when it essentially did not appear like coming.

I need Villa on my facet right here. Unlike most groups that rock as much as the Etihad Stadium, Smith’s facet do not play with concern and are working at a mean of 15.9 photographs per recreation this season, together with registering 15 away at league leaders Manchester United and 18 of their loopy win over Liverpool.

I’m on the draw.

JONES KNOWS PREDICTS: 1-1 (12/1 with Sky Bet)

Aston Villa have the attacking risk to bother Man City

ALSO LOOK OUT FOR: Aston Villa to have 13 or extra photographs 11/2 with Sky Bet – learn why right here!

Fulham vs Manchester United, Wednesday 8pm

For all Fulham’s plaudits, their effectivity in each containers is holding them again. Since their 2-1 win at Leicester, they’ve scored simply three targets – a league low for that interval. And, each Tottenham and Chelsea allow them to off the hook considerably of their final two video games with some mediocre ending of their very own.

Unlike Spurs and Chelsea, Manchester United are well-equipped to punish groups like Fulham when given intervals of dominance in video games.

This can be seen via their photographs on goal metrics this season. No crew have hit the goal greater than Manchester United (105). With possibilities prone to fall their approach at common intervals at Craven Cottage, backing them to have seven or extra photographs on goal at 6/4 appears a better approach of getting a constructive United efficiency in your favour fairly than taking a brief value on the victory – one which must be achieved with out a lot fuss.

The photographs on goal angle is a wager that has copped in related fixtures in opposition to relegation-threatened groups like Newcastle, Burnley, West Brom and Sheffield United already this season.

JONES KNOWS PREDICTS: 0-2 (8/1 with Sky Bet)

ALSO LOOK OUT FOR: Manchester United to have seven or extra photographs on goal (6/4 with Sky Bet)

Liverpool vs Burnley, Thursday 8pm, stay on Sky Sports Premier League


Thursday twenty first January 7:30pm

Kick off 8:00pm

Burnley – the lowest-scoring crew within the Premier League – have managed to attain extra targets of their final three video games than the champions Liverpool. A bizarre season is simply getting weirder.

Sunday’s drab draw at Anfield was the primary time in over two years that Liverpool have failed to attain in a Premier League recreation there. And, that is the primary time that Liverpool have failed to attain in three consecutive Premier League video games since March 2005 – virtually 16 years in the past.

When you want a aim or your confidence is drained, Burnley aren’t precisely essentially the most very best of opponents. If you ignore the annual 5-0 defeat at Manchester City, Burnley have solely conceded three targets from open play of their final 900 minutes of Premier League soccer. Sean Dyche will ask Liverpool to interrupt his boys down in the event that they can and can hope Nick Pope is in the identical type as he confirmed on this fixture final season when Burnley walked away with a 1-1 draw.

This is a tough encounter to discover a betting angle in. You suspect any win will do for Liverpool, so a low-scoring win with out conceding appears to be like the good play.

JONES KNOWS PREDICTS: 2-0 (6/1 with Sky Bet)
