The hectic Premier League festive program keeps coming thick and fast, and we’ve a tip for Saturday’s teatime match between Manchester United and Southampton, as well a tip for the Sunday lunchtime match between Crystal Palace and Manchester City, and a tip for the Sunday teatime match between West Brom and Arsenal.
Manchester United vs Southampton
(Saturday 30 Dec, 5.30, BT Sport)
Betting Guide: Manchester United 2/5, Draw 9/2, Southampton 9/1)
Southampton may have failed to park the bus in their 5-2 defeat to Tottenham over Christmas, but they’ve generally tried to keep things tight against the big teams this season. They’ve lost 1-0 to Chelsea on their travels, and only succumbed to a late goal in a 2-1 defeat at Manchester City. They also lost to a solitary goal at home to United earlier in the season, the fifth consecutive Premier League game between the two clubs that produced less than 2.5 goals. Meanwhile, 3 of United’s last 6 home games have also produced that result.

Crystal Palace vs Manchester City
(Sun 31 Dec, 12.00, BT Sports)
Betting Guide: Crystal Palace 12/1, Draw 11/2, Manchester City 3/10)
Manchester City may have the Premier League wrapped up, but Pep Guardiola is unlikely to let his players take their foot off the gas anytime soon, as he aims to beat his own record for the most consecutive wins by a top-flight team in Europe. If that’s not enough motivation for City, then Pep Guardiola is sure to remind his players that City have won their last 7 against Palace. Palace shouldn’t go down without a fight though, as they’re playing well under Roy Hodgson’s guidance, and they may be able to restrict the score to 1-0 or 2-0.

West Brom vs Arsenal
(Sun 31 Dec, 4.30, Sky Sports)
Betting Guide: West Brom 4/1, Draw 3/1, Arsenal 13/16
West Brom have a decent record in this fixture in recent years, winning the last two renewals, and drawing two of the previous three. Arsenal’s away form is also far inferior to their home form this season. However, the best bet could be for both teams to score, a bet that would have paid out in 7 of the last 8 renewals. West Brom have also scored against Manchester City and Manchester United at home this season.
