George's Premiership Predictions November 28 2015

The Premiership is about a third of the way in and there is a lot of uncertainty surrounding this season's title race. Things could get a bit clearer after this weekend's round of fixtures.

Second place Manchester United are away at leaders Leicester with Jamie Vardy hoping to beat Ruud van Nistelrooy's Premier League record by scoring in his 11th consecutive game. The league's meanest defence with Chris "Mike" Smalling is excellent form will be out to stop him. Elsewhere Spurs face Chelsea in an important London derby as Tottenham push for a top four spot and Chelsea hope to get their season back on track.

Brummie Deeney 11/2 To Give The Holte End The Blues

Birmingham City fan Troy Deeney is 11/2 to score in front of the Holte End on Saturday as Watford visit bottom of the table Aston Villa.

The striker is also 13/2 to outscore Villa by himself, 100/1 to bag a hat-trick, 40/1 to score another own goal and 33/1 to see red at Villa Park this weekend.

The Lions, who currently sit bottom of the Premier League with 5 points, are bet365’s 2/7 favourites to be relegated with Watford quoted at 10/1.

Soccer - Baines return on Martinez's mind

‎ Manager Roberto Martinez is considering handing fit-again England left-back Leighton Baines a first Everton appearance of the season at Bournemouth. Baines has been sidelined by an ankle injury sustained on the eve of the new campaign, but he is back to the sort of fitness needed to feature for the Toffees, who travel to the South Coast on Saturday. However, Martinez remains cautious about the reintroduction of Baines, fearing that another setback could see his player's season ended prematurely. He told reporters: "Physically he is fine from a medical point of view. Now it's about giving him the right sort of introduction. "It's about giving him exactly what he needs, not rushing him back and losing him for the rest of the campaign." Everton currently lie in seventh place in the Premier League table, having taken seven points from a possible nine in their last three games, with striker Romelu Lukaku netting four goals in those three matches. The Belgium international can be backed at 13/10 with bet365 to score at any time against the Cherries on Saturday.

Soccer - City duo unlikely to feature

‎Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini expects to be without both Vincent Kompany and David Silva for the visit of Southampton this weekend. The pair missed the 1-0 midweek Champions League defeat at Juventus and Pellegrini believes that the clash with the Saints at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday will come too soon for both players. He said after the loss to Juve: "Vincent doesn't have any chance to play this week because he's not started running already, so he has two weeks more. "David improved a little bit more the last two days. He's working with the physio in Manchester. "We will see. We don't have many days until Saturday, but when we arrive in Manchester we will have a look." Pellegrini also has Pablo Zabaleta, Wilfried Bony, Samir Nasri and Eliaquim Mangala out of action, while goalkeeper Joe Hart suffered a hamstring problem during the loss in Turin, leaving the Citizens 5/4 with bet365 to keep a clean sheet on Saturday.

Soccer - United boss expects to progress

‎Louis van Gaal remains confident that Manchester United will qualify for the Champions League knockout stages, with the Red Devils 8/11 with bet365 to progress from Group B. A goalless draw at home to PSV Eindhoven left United in second place in their group with one round of fixtures left to play, with United heading to Germany to take on leaders Wolfsburg. PSV, who are just a point behind the men from Manchester, host CSKA Moscow, meaning that United must win in Germany to ensure they progress. However, a typically bullish Van Gaal has backed his players to get the job done, referencing the 2-1 home win over Wolfsburg earlier on in the group stage. He told reporters: "Going out to Germany is always tough, but we have to believe in ourselves and have the confidence in ourselves to do that. "It's not the way we wanted it to be, but that's the way it is and we believe we're good enough to go out there and get the three points. We won our home game against them, so why can we not win away?"

Soccer - Mourinho praises Chelsea efforts

Jose Mourinho believes Chelsea will take plenty of confidence from a hard-fought 2-1 Champions League win at home to Dynamo Kiev. The Blues looked like being held to a draw when they conceded an equaliser 13 minutes from time at Stamford Bridge, but a superb Willian free-kick six minutes later was enough to secure a valuable three points. And Mourinho was delighted with the final outcome, which moved his side closer to ensuring a place in the knockout stages of the competition, with the Blues now 1/8 with bet365 to progress. He told reporters: "We didn't need to win to qualify, so it was not a drama at 1-1. "We knew that with a draw we would finish second in the group if we won our next two matches, but from a mental point of view it was important to react to a negative moment. "This was perfect because we conceded a goal with 15 minutes or so left and the team emerged. They knew 1-1 would be acceptable, but they wanted to win and it will give them confidence."

Soccer - Minimum chance warns Wenger

Arsene Wenger accepts Arsenal have only a 'minimum' chance of reaching the knockout stages of the Champions League following a 5-1 mauling at Bayern Munich. The thrashing in the Allianz Arena leaves the Gunners needing to beat Dinamo Zagreb and Olympiakos to have any hope of qualifying for the last-16, with Wenger and co. also needing Bayern to do them a favour by seeing off Olympiakos. And, while Wenger retains a little hope of progressing, he accepts that the odds are now firmly against his side, with Arsenal 7/2 with bet365 to qualify for the knockout stages of the competition. The Frenchman admitted: "There is still a chance to qualify, Olympiakos have to lose here, we have to beat Zagreb and then beat Olympiakos - there is a small chance but it is a real one. "We have to realise with the kind of performance we had that our chance is at a minimum."

Colback blow hurts Newcastle

Newcastle United look set to be without the services of the former Sunderland midfielder Jack Colback until mid-December. Magpies boss Steve McClaren is already without Steven Taylor, Tim Krul and Curtis Good, but Colback has now been ruled out for six weeks after sustaining a knee injury in the Wear-Tyne derby last weekend. The 26-year-old picked up the problem when he was challenged by Lee Cattermole and had to leave the Stadium of Light on crutches wearing a protective knee brace. McClaren said: "Sadly we won't have Jack Colback in our line-up this weekend after the results of a further scan on his right knee. "Unfortunately this injury, which was sustained at the Stadium of Light on Sunday, will see him out for up to six weeks and we all wish Jack the very best in his recovery." Newcastle entertain Stoke City on Saturday and are 7/5 with bet365 to claim a much-needed victory.

Soccer - Lallana calls for patience

Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana has warned the Anfield faithful that they will have to show patience as new head coach Jurgen Klopp tries to change things around at the club. Klopp has seen his new charges draw both of their first two games since he took over at the club, with Lallana confident that success will eventually come for the Merseysiders. Ahead of a Sunday league clash with former club Southampton, Lallana told the Echo: "It was never going to just change overnight. Maybe the reaction to him coming in was a bit over the top, but he's a great manager who has had great success. "He's asking people to do different things to what they were used to, so it will take a bit of time. "It's not going to happen overnight, but I'm very confident we're going to succeed under him." Lallana is 15/4 with bet365 to score at any time against the Saints, with Liverpool 21/20 to claim a first victory under former Borussia Dortmund tactician Klopp.

Soccer - Vardy challenged by Ranieri

Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri has challenged striker Jamie Vardy to continue his fine goalscoring form for the rest of the season. The 28-year-old England international has nine Premier League goals to his name already this season and is currently 8/1 with bet365 to finish the campaign as the top scorer in the English top-flight. And Ranieri has challenged Vardy to maintain his high standards and prove himself as one of the top forwards in the game. He told reporters ahead of a clash with Crystal Palace at the King Power Stadium: "I hope he can continue, but football is strange. "It is not important to think about goal or no goal, but it is important for him to think about how he plays for the team. "It is the first year he has shown what he can do in the Premier League. He scored 16 in the Championship and now he starts to learn again and I hope he can improve again."
