Premier League Betting Tips 9/10 November

Arsenal were the big winners last weekend €“ their 2-0 victory over Liverpool extended their lead at the top of the Premier League to 5 points after five of the chasing six dropped points. Arsène Wenger's side followed that up with an impressive result, beating Borussia Dortmund 1-0 in Germany on Wednesday night in the Champions League. The Gunners travel to Manchester United on Sunday. David Moyes' side were victorious again last week, beating Fulham 3-1 and closing the gap between them and 4th place to 3 points after Tottenham drew 0-0 with Everton. United are coming off of a disappointing 0-0 draw with Real Sociedad in the Champions League. Chelsea will be looking to bounce back from their 2-0 defeat at Newcastle when they host West Brom this weekend. José Mourinho has won 51 of his 65 Premier League games drawing the other 14 and his Blues are heavy favourites to pick up 3 points this weekend. Liverpool too have a home tie they are expected to win following a 2-0 loss themselves last weekend. Brendan Rodgers' side host an out-of-sorts Fulham at Anfield on Saturday. Tottenham's home game with Newcastle has been pushed back to Sunday after André Villas-Boas' side's exploits in the Europa League on Thursday. Newcastle may be buzzing from last weekend's victory over Chelsea but face a tough trip to the capital where they've often struggled for success in the past. Norwich City host West Ham in the televised Saturday evening game €“ two sides who are not scoring many of late. Fingers crossed Sky Sports have got this one right! Manchester City's trip to Sunderland is also televised on Sunday. A match that sees the league's highest scorers travel to the league's leakiest defence.
