Midweek round in Premier League. 3 matches scheduled on Tuesday.
In this post tips and reviews of Aston Villa - West Bromwich, Hull City - Sunderland and Southampton - Crystal Palace.
ASTON VILLA - WEST BROMWICH ALBION
Aston Villa is having a really bad period. It has collected 7 defeats in a row, the last against Newcastle and in the last 11 matches has scored 3 goals only and won 1 match: an awful trend, in short.
The opponent is West Brom which has kept its goal unbeated in 5 of the last 7 matches.
Our opinion is resolute on the UNDER 2.5 wich would be the 5th in a row for West Brom in the last 5 away matches.
POSSIBLE SCORE: 1-1
ASTON VILLA: Guzan, Hutton, Vlaar, Clark, Cissokho, Sinclair, Cleverley,
Delph, Gil, Agbonlahor, Benteke.
WEST BROM: Foster, Dawson, McAuley, Lescott, Brunt, McManaman, Fletcher, Yacob, Gardner, Sessegnon, Ideye.
HULL CITY - SUNDERLAND
Sunderland has some unavailable players for this match (Giaccherini, Buckley and Alvarez).
Hull City doesn't score a lot, and to say the truth, Sunderland neither.
Considering this is a match to avoid the relegation, 1X and UNDER 2,5 are the best choices.
POSSIBLE SCORE: 1-0
HULL CITY: McGregor, McShane, Bruce, Dawson, Elmohamady, Livermore,
Huddlestone, Meyler, Robertson, Jelavic, N’Doye.
SUNDERLAND: Pantilimon, Reveillere, Brown, O’Shea, Van Aanholt, Cattermole, Johnson, Larsson, Gomez, Wickham, Defoe.
Crystal Palace has become very offensive in the last two months with the new coach Pardew. Results came fast since its team has collected 3 away wins in a row.
Southampton has the best defense of the whole Premier League with 20 goals conceded but Koeman's team problem is its weakness when it comes to score.
In the first part of the season Southampton has perfectly taken advantage of the few occasions created during the match, while in the last period it seems like they mainly pay attention at their defensive phase.
Moreover, Crystal Palace can't rely upon t two forwarders Chamakh and Campbell, both injured.
In our opinion this is an UNDER 2.5 match since Southampton was unable to score in the last three home matches and this would be the 9th UNDER 2.5 in the last 10 Premier League matches.
CRYSTAL PALACE: Speroni, Ward, Dann, Delaney, Kelly, McArthur, Ledley, Zaha, Puncheon, Bolasie, Gayle.
