Premier League Matchday 14 Preview – Prediction + Tips 2019/20

It’s week fourteen of the EPL, already a third of the games have gone by and now the league is beginning to take shape. Liverpool remain top, and Leicester are nipping at their heels. 

There are no massive games this week, yet there could be a couple of banana skins for the top teams. City won’t want a repeat of last season and some of the other games will have relegation implications.

Match of the Day

The best game of the week is the a London Derby between Chelsea and West Ham. Both teams are going in opposite directions, and the Hammers really need to find some form. See our prediction below. 

Chelsea v West Ham

  • Venue: Stamford Bridge
  • Saturday 30 November 15:00
  • Referee: Jon Moss
  • Quick Glance OddsH: 2/7 D: 5/1 A: 8/1

About the Game:

Chelsea bounce into this game on the back of a defeat away at the defending champions Man City. They drew 2-2 midweek in the Champions League and will be looking at getting back to winning ways. If they win in this one it will be their seventh in eight PL matches. 

A stat that is favourable for Chelsea is that they haven’t lost at home to West Ham in 14 games, and it will most likely improve in this one. Chelsea will be sweating over the fitness of Tammy Abraham who suffered a hip injury midweek. 

Bet on Chelsea v West Ham at 22Bet

In stark comparison to the Blues, West Ham are in dreadful form. They haven’t won in seven games and are now just three points above the relegation zone. They haven’t beaten Chelsea at Stamford Bridge since 2002. It most likely won’t change this weekend. 

Issa Diop will serve a one-match ban. They still remain without Lukasz Fabianksi, and have struggled without him. They will also be missing Manuel Lanzini, Jack Wilshere, and Winston Reid. The team is struggling and this will be another tough game. It is hard to see them taking anything from this one. 

Prediction: Chelsea to win – There doesn’t seem to be any other outcome possible, the Blues will be too good. 

Rest of the Premier League Games

Here’s our previews and betting tips for all the rest of the weekend’s action.

Newcastle v Manchester City

  • Venue: St James’ Park
  • Saturday 30 November 12:30
  • Referee: Chris Kavanagh
  • Quick Glance OddsH: 13/1 D: 7/1 A: 1/6

About the Game:

Last season, Newcastle sprung a surprise with a 2-1 victory against City, and they will be looking for some more today. They have been in decent form, yet they come into this one on the back of a poor performance away at Villa. Their defence will be key in this one, and have a good record at home, with only four goals conceded at home. 

Man City are looking to win their fifth match in six games, and have scored in their last 21 games against the Magpies. If they get in front early this will be a walk in the park. 

Prediction: City to win – It will most likely end up being a routine victory for City as they are just too good for Newcastle. 

Burnley v Crystal Palace

  • Venue: Turf Moor
  • Saturday 30 November 15:00
  • Referee: Peter Bankes
  • Quick Glance OddsH: 5/4 D: 9/4 A: 23/10

About the Game:

Burnely have won two on the trot, both successive 3-0 victories. They sit seventh in the table and are once more looking at pushing for a European place this season. Ashley Westwood is suspended for this game, but Danny Drinkwater and Matej Vydra could be available for selection. 

After a very tough run of fixtures, Palace are without a win in five games. This has seen them plummet from sixth to 13th. They’ll see this game as a chance to get back on track. They’ll be without Joel Ward, but other than that they have no fresh injury concerns to contend with. 

Prediction: Burnley to win – It might be a tight game, but Burnley should just have enough for a home win. 

Liverpool v Brighton

  • Venue: Anfield
  • Saturday 30 November 15:00
  • Referee: Martin Atkinson
  • Quick Glance OddsH: 2/11 D: 6/1 A: 14/1

About the Game:

Despite a midweek draw in the Champions League, the Reds have been absolutely dominant so far this season. Only dropping points in one game. Their home form is incredible and they have scored 17 goals in six games. This one will be a case of by how much they will win, not whether they will win. 

Brighton’s form has been up and down this season, and come into this one sporting back-to-back defeats. They will be boosted by the return of Lewis Dunk, but in all honesty, they will do well to escape with anything here. What’s more, they’ve lost four PL away games in a row, so we can’t imagine the travelling fans will be leaving happy in this one. 

Prediction: Liverpool to win (-1.5 handicap)  – This will be a routine victory for the Reds. They could score more than four here. 

Tottenham v Bournemouth

  • Venue: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
  • Saturday 30 November 15:00
  • Referee: Lee Mason
  • Quick Glance OddsH: 4/11 D: 9/2 A: 13/2

About the Game:

Life has been good so far for Jose Mourinho with back-to-back victories. The midweek game looked in peril, before they came back to win 4-2 in a thrilling match. They have another very winnable game and have won all of their previous home games to Bournemouth. 

Bournemouth are having a pretty average season, and have lost two games in a row. They would have thought that they could have gotten more out of those matches, and will be hoping to stick one to Jose and Spurs in this one. It will be a tough one, but Spurs are prone to conceding some goals. 

Prediction: Spurs to win – Another win for Jose and things are starting to look up at Tottenham already!

Southampton v Watford

  • Venue: St. Mary’s Stadium
  • Saturday 30 November 17:30
  • Referee: Michael Oliver
  • Quick Glance OddsH: 11/10 D: 12/5 A: 5/2

About the Game:

Southampton haven’t won in eight games now, and are desperate to get three points. This is the truest of relegation scraps that you will find. The Saints will be encouraged by grabbing a point away at Arsenal last week, but will come into this came without Stuart Armstrong who pulled his hamstring in that game. 

Watford remain planted to the bottom of the table and will be without Craig Dawson, Christian Kabasele, Daryl Janmaat (knee), Tom Cleverley, Danny Welbeck, and Sebastian Prödl. It will be a tough match and is hard to predict. It will most likely be low in quality and will be decided by one scrappy goal. 

Prediction: Draw – It’s the toughest match to predict of the week. A draw would be a bad result for both teams, but a defeat would be worse. 

Norwich City v Arsenal

  • Venue: Vicarage Road
  • Sunday 1 December 14:00
  • Referee: Paul Tierney
  • Quick Glance OddsH: 3/1 D: 10/3 A: 3/4

About the Game:

Norwich finally won last time out to move up to 18th. They are still three points from safety, but it was a much needed win. Now, they face an Arsenal side that will come into town looking to impress their new boss. It’s hard to see the Canaries walking away with anything from this one. 

Unai Emery is no more. Arsenal have sacked the Spaniard and replaced him with Freddie Ljungberg for the time being. They haven’t won in five Premier League games and the overall feeling around Arsenal has been poor for a long time. They will be hoping this move sparks something that has been lacking within the squad. 

Prediction: Arsenal to win – The Gunners win in style and forget the Emery was ever even there.  

Wolves v Sheffield United

  • Venue: Molineux Stadium
  • Sunday 1 December 14:00
  • Referee: David Coote
  • Quick Glance OddsH: 10/11 D: 5/2 A: 16/5

About the Game:

Wolves are in incredible form, they are unbeaten in eight PL games, and Nuno Espirito Santo’s boys are looking sharp. They will be without Romain Saiss in this game, whilst Ryan Bennett and Morgan Gibbs White are doubts. 

Sheffield United still haven’t lost away from home. It’s an incredible feat for the promoted side, and shows the benefit of keeping a squad together. Dean Henderson will return for this game after missing the previous match due to loan restrictions and will provide a much needed boost for the Blades. 

Prediction: Draw – Although this one could go in Wolves’ favour, the Blades are draw specialists away from home. 

Leicester v Everton

  • Venue: King Power Stadium
  • Sunday 1 December 16:30
  • Referee: Graham Scott
  • Quick Glance OddsH: 8/13 D: 3/1 A: 3/4

About the Game:

Leicester are the form team in the league at the moment. Powered by 12 goals in 13 games from Jamie Vardy, they are sitting pretty in second place. Although the fans shouldn’t expect another title, Champions League football looks set to return to the King Power Stadium. Their home record suggests this will be another three points for the Foxes. 

On the contrary, Everton’s season has been one of disappointment and Javi Garcia seems to be on the hot seat. Moise Kean has been a failure and there just seems to be a negative vibe around the Toffees. It won’t get better this weekend. 

Prediction: Leicester to win – The Foxes will win and Jamie Vardy will score. Is there a more iconic duo?

Manchester United v Aston Villa

  • Venue: Old Trafford
  • Sunday 1 December 16:30
  • Referee: Craig Pawson
  • Quick Glance OddsH: 9/20 D: 7/2 A: 6/1

About the Game:

Manchester United are firmly in mid-table. They are just as close to the relegation zone as they are the Champions League places. After another abject start in their previous match, they ended up drawing with an encouraging second half display. They’ll need more of where that came from this week, and anything less than a victory will be a disaster. 

Aston Villa bounced back with a win last week, and sit just three points behind United in the table. In previous years, this would have been a one-sided match, but we wouldn’t put it past the Villains to pinch something in this one. 

Prediction: Manchester United to win – They need to be winning games like this when they are playing at home.
