Degsy thinks Arsenal will slip up in their tough trip to Stoke, but Chelsea and Spurs should find things pretty easy against basement strugglers Fulham and Cardiff...

Backing Newcastle At 14s, You T*ts...


Degsy got a whole load of stick last week for backing Sunderland to win at Man United so he's happy to put his head up again and back Newcastle at Liverpool...

All Articles

Everton v West Ham
Chicken dancers of the world unite! After scoring six goals in his last seven league games (does best BA Baracus voice) I pity the fool who dares to offer us 4/1 about Kevin Nolan scoring at Goodison.
Betting: Nolan to score anytime at 4/1 (Hills)

Fulham v Chelsea
It's top versus bottom in west London and there will be plenty lumping on the Blues at 4/9. They have kept eight clean sheets in their last 11 Premier League games and look the b*llocks at the back. However their lack of menace in the final third is a worry and given this should be keenly contested there could be mileage in backing Mourinho's little horse to win this by the odd goal in, er, one.
Betting: Chelsea to win 1-0 at 7/1 (Ladbrokes)

Hull City v Newcastle
The Tigers recorded a thumping 4-0 win last time out and while Le Toon stopped the rot with a 1-0 win of their own on Sunday I'm still not convinced about them in the post-Cabaye era. "All the creativity of an asthmatic gerbil," was how one Geordie pal of mine described recent performances. Home win.
Betting: Hull City to win at 29/20 (bet365)

Stoke v Arsenal
Whilst not quite a fortress, Stoke's Britannia Stadium has been something of a big f*ck off semi-detached house with barbed wire in the garden this term. Make no bones, Arsenal won't be relishing this and it's yet another test of the Wenger's boys' title credentials. The smart money here goes down backing Stoke to either draw or win at a thoroughly decent 5/4.
Betting: Draw - Stoke double result at 5/4 (Bet Victor)

Southampton v Liverpool
The Reds are now officially the highest scorers in the top flight with a plain scary 70 goals from 27 matches. And yer man Daniel Sturridge has now scored in eight straight Premier League games. To paraphrase the late, great darts commentary legend and all-round lunatic Sid Waddell: 'When Alexander of Macedonia was 33 he cried salt tears because there were no more worlds to conquer...Sturridge is only 24.'
Betting: Sturridge to score first at 5/1 (bet365)

Aston Villa v Norwich
I envisage a game low on drama and derring-do. Indeed, if those whacky cameramen from MOTD2 are to catch someone snoozing in the stands this weekend, I have a hunch it will be here.
Betting: Under 1.5 goals at 21/10 (Hills)

Swansea v Crystal Palace
The Swans showed some real cojones in the week against Napoli but the end result was glorious failure sadly and detractors will wonder just how much a gruelling trip has taken out of them physically. It shouldn't really be a factor though should it? These are professional sportsmen after all. Finely tuned athletes. I mean only last week I ate salt & pepper king prawns, chips and special chow mein less than one hour before starring in a fascinating 13-7 five-a-side win at the Hartlepool Sports Dome. Some observers were adamant that I had "rolled back the years" that night. And I had eaten two packets of Haribo Starmix earlier in the day. You get me blud?
Betting: Both teams to score - Swansea to win at 16/5 (Hills)

Tottenham v Cardiff City
It's looking ominous for Cardiff. Tonked 4-0 last week, their recent form has been consistently sh*te and they go to Spurs to face a side who will be full of it after midweek Europa League heroics. Try as I might I cannot see the Bluebirds returning from North London with anything other than a good hiding.
Betting: Tottenham to be leading after 30 minutes at 27/20 (Ladbrokes)
