Grim day for Clarets at Bournemouth

196

Eddie Howe can keep his former Burnley side entrenched in the relegation dogfight by guiding Bournemouth to victory against the Clarets on Saturday.

Howe spent almost two years in charge at Turf Moor before returning to Bournemouth in October 2012 and guiding the Cherries to two promotions and stability in the Premier League.

Bournemouth to keep a clean sheet @ 37/20

This season Bournemouth have been terrible on their travels but remain an entirely different proposition at home where they have won seven games.

Howe’s side slumped to a 4-0 defeat at Burnley in September and can gain some revenge for that humiliation by beating Sean Dyche’s side this weekend at 11/10.

Brendan Rodgers’ appointment as Leicester City has galvanised the Foxes who have won their last three matches.

They can make it four in a row by beating a Huddersfield Town team whose relegation was confirmed last weekend.

The Terriers lost 3-1 at the King Power Stadium earlier in the campaign and have been defeated in 17 of their last 19 top-flight matches. Youri Tielemans is good value at 9/1 to score the first goal in West Yorkshire.

Crystal Palace to draw 0-0 at Newcastle @ 29/4

Newcastle United are seven points clear of danger largely because of their recent home form – they have won their last five league games at St James’ Park.

They drew 0-0 at Saturday’s opponents Crystal Palace in September and Roy Hodgson’s side have been better away from home than at Selhurst Park this term. Another goalless stalemate is not out of the question and would probably suit both teams.

Arsenal have not kept a clean sheet away from home this season while Sunday’s opponents Everton have moved into the top half of the table after recording back-to-back victories against Chelsea and West Ham United.

The Gunners may miss out on a top-four finish because of their poor away form which looks set to continue at Goodison Park. An Everton win and both teams to score is available at 15/4.

Friday’s match sees Southampton take on Liverpool at St Mary’s and, while it may take the Reds a while to break down the improved Saints, Jurgen Klopp’s side can eventually pick up another three points. A draw at half time and Liverpool win after 90 minutes can be backed at 57/20.
