After a very busy Saturday we have just two Sunday English Premier League fixtures to look forward to and we take a look at each game from a betting angle.
Arsenal v Nottingham – Click here to bet
Arsenal are top of the log, but they have seen their lead cut to 2 points after a disappointing 1-1 away draw at Southampton, a game where they took the lead, but conceded the equalizer. That broke a run of 4 successive victories for the Gunners and they now return home where they have a 100% record in their 5 matches, scoring 2 goals to every 1 of their opponents.
Nottingham are bottom of the table, but picked up a much needed win last time out beating Liverpool 1-0 at home, a result which could be backed at 8/1. That was only their second win of the season and a closer look at their away form shows that they are still looking for their first victory after 6 games. They have only scored 1 goal on the road while conceding 14.
All 5 of Arsenal’s home matches have delivered profits for over 2.5 goal backers, but only 2 of the 6 Nottingham away games have reached the 3 goal mark. Arsenal lost in Europe on Thursday night, but I think their focus is very much on the League now and I a backing them to score at least 3 goals in this one.
Suggested Bet: Arsenal over 2.5 goals at 9/10

Manchester United v West Ham – Click here to bet
Manchester United are currently 6th on the log and are undefeated in their last 4 starts, 2 of those have been draws though including last time out 1-1 away at Chelsea. Their last home game was a 2-0 win over Tottenham. A closer look at their home form shows United have won 3 and drawn 1 of their 5 matches and 3 of the 5 Manchester United home games have breached the 2.5 goal barrier.
West Ham are currently 10th on the table and they have had 3 wins in their last 5 starts, most recently beating Bournemouth 2-0 at home. Prior to that they lost 1-0 on the road to Liverpool and their problems this season have come away from home and they have only won 1 out of 6 games with 4 defeats. A closer look at West Ham away matches shows they have been very low scoring averaging just 1.5 goals each with only 1 of the matches reaching the 3 goal mark and West Ham have been outscored by an average of 2 goals to 1.
West Ham are much improved, but their form on the road is a concern and their record at Old Trafford is poor having lost 4 and drawn 1 of their last 5 matches. The last 3 Manchester United victories against West Ham in Manchester have been by 1 goal margins and I am backing that trend to continue.
Suggested Bet: Handicap, Manchester United -1 the draw at 11/4
