The busy Premier League action continues this week with a full list of fixtures over Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, with the pick of the games Manchester United’s visit to Arsenal.
Cardiff City v Aston Villa Betting Tips
One of the key relegation battle matches this evening sees second-bottom Cardiff City take on Aston Villa.
Cardiff are in desperate need of picking up some points over the coming weeks after registering just one win in their last nine league matches.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Craig Noone should be available for selection after nursing an injury on the bench during Saturday’s 3-0 loss at Swansea but Andrew Taylor and Mark Hudson remain sidelined.
Opponents Villa currently sit 12th and four points above the drop zone but are looking for their first win in three following defeats to Everton and West Ham in recent weeks.
The Midlanders may be without Ryan Bertrand, who hurt his ribs in the West Ham match after a collision, and skipper Ron Vlaar who has an ongoing hamstring problem.
Catch this match live on BT Sport 1 from 7:45pm.
Arsenal v Manchester United Betting Tips
Arsenal will be looking to bounce back from their humiliating 5-1 defeat to Liverpool at the weekend against a Manchester United side also looking to restore some pride following their 2-2 draw at home to bottom-of-the-table Fulham.
Arsenal had previously gone eight games unbeaten in the league before Saturday’s result which knocked them off the top of the tree.
Thomas Vermalen could be available for selection after recovering from a calf injury but midfielder Aaron Ramsey is still a few weeks away from contention with a hip injury.
Despite them having Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie back from injuries, United’s draw on Sunday cost them more ground on the race for the Champions League and they are now nine points adrift from the top four.
David Moyes’ side haven’t won back-to-back league games since December 28th and Phil Jones faces a late fitness test after missing Sunday’s game with concussion.
This match is live on Wednesday evening from 7:45pm on BT Sport 1.
Newcastle United v Tottenham Betting Tips
Another interesting match on Wednesday evening sees eighth placed Newcastle host Tottenham, who moved up to fifth following Sunday’s 1-0 win over Everton.
The Magpies seem destined for mid-table obscureness this season, being ten points adrift the European places, whilst having a comfortable cushion over the relegation dog fight.
They’ll no doubt want to throw a spanner at Spurs’ European hopes on Wednesday and Alan Pardew could have the services of Yohann Gouffran, Gabriel Obertan and Papiss Cisse who are all fit following injury lay-offs.
Tottenham are in good form though with just one defeat in their last nine league games and boss Tim Sherwood has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the match.
