The last fixtures before the busy Christmas programme
Newcastle v Fulham
Newcastle’s form has picked up after their tough start of the season with three wins in their last six games and an important away victory at Huddersfield last weekend. Their run of kind looking fixtures continues with the visit of bottom of the table Fulham who have one point in their last four games after a win in Ranieri’s first game in charge.
Newcastle are best priced 21/20 here with BetVictor
Huddersfield v Southampton
After the home loss to Newcastle, Huddersfield are in the bottom three with two wins in 17 games and ten goals scored all season. Southampton are also in the bottom three with one win and 13 goals in their games and yet to show any benefit from their recent managerial change. For two such sides in poor form and lacking goals the 9/4 about the draw (0-0 anyone?) appeals with BetVictor
West Ham v Watford
West Ham are climbing the table rapidly with four wins in a row despite the absence of Arnatovic and Lanzini with Anderson scoring five goals and in terrific form. Watford got their first win in six holding on to beat Cardiff and were unlucky to be pegged back to a draw against Everton on Monday Night Football.
The 11/8 available about a home win here with BetVictor is very tempting though and should be supported.
