Premier League betting tips - March 22-23 - Both teams to score

Premier League

Chelsea vs Arsenal

The home side go into this crucial clash on the back of qualifying for the quarter-finals of the Champions League. However, they are without both Willian and Ramires, who picked up red cards at Aston Villa last weekend.

Despite this, Arsenal have a number of key players missing in Jack Wilshere, Theo Walcott, Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey. With this in mind, you would have to say Chelsea are the strong favourites in this game.

The Gunners will find it difficult with a weakened midfield and have seen only one of their last five away trips in the Premier League end in victory. The Blues have won all but two at home in the league this season, and I fully expect them to maintain that.

Champions League betting tips - March 18-19 - Both teams to score

Chelsea vs Galatasaray

The main focus of this tie will be the return of Didier Drogba to Stamford Bridge as Roberto Mancini’s side travel to the capital. The clash is tightly poised with the first leg producing a 1-1 draw.

In their last outing, Chelsea suffered a shock defeat to Aston Villa, but will surely get back to winning ways. In the last leg, their failure to turn their dominance into goals cost them dearly. However, with home advantage, you will find it hard to bet against the Blues recording victory and progressing to the next round.

Galatasaray played through a 0-0 draw away to Karabukspor which ended in star striker Drogba producing a fit following substitution. The Istanbul outfit have only managed one win in their last six outings on the road in the Turkish league, against somewhat mediocre opposition.

Premier League

Fulham vs Newcastle

The Cottagers have had quite a dismal season to say the least, finding themselves in 20th position having conceded an astronomical 65 goals in the league.

However, they have a prime opportunity to claim maximum points in a bid to increase their survival chances with the Magpies missing key players in Loic Remy and Mathieu Debuchy. With the two Frenchman ruled out the clash, particularly Remy, the pressure will be eased on the ever so leaky Fulham back four.

Whilst the stats don’t swing in Fulham’s favour, with a now fully fit Kostas Mitroglou raring to go, I can see the Whites pulling off a surprise at Craven Cottage and claiming all three points. It would be fair to say that anything less than a win would add what could be the final nail in the coffin to their Premier League status.

Premier League

Fulham vs Newcastle

A marooned Fulham have the chance to pick up their only win of the last 9 games and gain ground on 19th-placed Cardiff this weekend but will have to shore up their backline in order to do so.

The Cottagers have the leakiest defence in the League which sees them sit rock bottom on -36 goal difference, an average of 2.2 goals per game this season. They are without a home clean sheet since the beginning of December and have lost the last 4 in front of their own crowd, conceding 13.

At the other end they aren’t much better, managing exactly a goal-per-game. The visitors have the worst defensive record in the top half with 39 against, and have kept just one clean sheet away from home in their last 5. Their 4-1 rout at Hull was the first time they had scored away from home in nearly 200 minutes. The Toon have managed more goals overall this season with 1.4 goals per game.
