At 1.30pm it’s West Bromwich Albion v Liverpool

A measure of the task facing Pepe Mel at West Brom is that they have won just three of their last 15 Barclays Premier League games at the Hawthorns (D6 L6). They also conceded a two goal lead in losing 4-3 at Villa Park in midweek with some very weak defending.

Liverpool have only failed to score in one of their last 13 Barclays Premier League away games and have netted 33 in that run. Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge have played a combined 33 Premier League games this season and scored 36 goals and whilst much of the attention is on 23 goals Suarez, Daniel Sturridge has found the net in 12 of his 15 Premier League appearances for Liverpool this season.

No surprises to see Liverpool as short as 8/13 for this game, and there don’t seem to be many reasons to quibble with this. Bet Victor offer 5/1 about Sturridge being first goal-scorer. In this form, that seems an interesting price for an interest and potential return in excess of Liverpool on the outright

At 4pm, Arsenal host Crystal Palace

Arsenal are 1/4 for this home game against improving Crystal Palace, priced at 16/1. Arsenal have won 14 and lost just one of their last 20 Barclays Premier League games at the Emirates whilst Crystal Palace have scored just five goals away from home in the Barclays Premier League, fewer than any other team and never more than once in a single match.

Pulis has of course turned round Palace dramatically, with most of this improvement seen at Selhurst Park with organised defence and just enough goals to get by. It’s a different task at a top 4 side away from home. Take a look at the 9/10 BetVictor offer on Arsenal to win to Nil. One of the league’s best defences against a far from prolific attacking force.
