Pete Nordsted has two selections from the latest round of Premier League action, including games involving Chelsea and LiverpoolWell, last weekend we suffered a couple of poor results, with both teams scoring in the Stoke v Southampton game and, unfortunately, the Rayo Vallecano-Real Madrid proved something of a goal-fest.
Here, we are following a system bet and you are advised to keep stakes reasonable and always try and obtain the best price available.
This weekend both our selections are from the Premier League, with high-flying Chelsea taking on West Bromwich Albion and Liverpool taking on a Fulham side struggling for form of late.
Jose Mourinho was certainly not happy with his side’s performance last weekend when they went down 2-0 at Newcastle and will be looking for a victory to take them closer to leaders Arsenal.
Chelsea have an outstanding record when playing teams of the Baggies’ stature that reads won nine, drawn none and lost one, with eight of the nine victories coming to nil.
When looking at Steve Clarke’s side, they have obviously improved of late and are now sitting in a comfortable mid-table position.
However, their away record against the Premier League elite is very poor and reads won one, drawn none and lost nine, with eight of those nine defeats having come to nil.
Looking at the above stats suggests nothing but a comfortable afternoon for the Blues, and they can be backed here at a very appealing looking 11/10 (2.10) with Paddy Power to win to nil. Otherwise, the NO on both teams to score can be backed again at a solid looking 4/5 (1.80).
For our second match, we once again head over to Anfield, where Liverpool will be looking to get back to winning ways after last weekend’s 2-0 defeat at the Emirates against table-topping Arsenal.
This Saturday they come up against a Fulham side who sit just above the drop zone and their manager Martin Jol is now coming under some pressure.
Brendan Rodgers’ side do not have a great home record against teams of Fulham’s grading, which reads an average won five, drawn two, lost three. However, in these 10 matches both teams scored in only three.
When looking at Fulham's record away to the second-tier sides in the Premier League, though, it reads a poor won two, drawn one and lost seven, and here, both teams scored in only two of the matches.
The stats above are strong and when also looking at the recent head-to-head record the last five have also seen at least one team fail to find the net.
Here, those more adventurous may wish to back Liverpool at Evens (2.00) to win to nil. However, there is still some good value in backing the NO on both teams to score and this can be backed at 8/11 (1.73) with Paddy Power.
