Premier League Betting Tips – 20-21 September
After predicting results for Everton and Manchester City last time out, the Alien EPL Analyst returns to further improve upon his profitability betting on the Premier League this weekend.
Premier League Betting Tips
Aston Villa (4.75) v Arsenal (3.60); Draw (1.85)
Arsenal will be looking to bounce back from a humbling defeat to Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League this week, with a trip to high-flying Aston Villa on Saturday.
The Gunners carry an impressive record at Villa Park and have not lost in any of their last 15 meetings to the Midlands in all competitions, winning eight games and drawing seven.
Manager Arsene Wenger has a number of players unavailable with right back Mathieu Debuchy the latest casualty, but Jack Wilshere and Matheiu Flamini should both return in the double pivot to give the north London side some much needed stability, given that the Gunners have yet to keep a clean sheet in the Premier League this season.
Opponents Aston Villa picked up a surprising victory at Anfield last time out, with the Villains climbing up to second place in the league.
Paul Lambert has recently signed a new deal at the club, alongside long-term outcast Alan Hutton, but it’s the influence and galvanizing qualities of assistant Roy Keane, which has seen to be the overriding difference at the club this time around.
The return of Christian Benteke will provide some much needed competition up front, with Aston Villa’s six shots on target this season a divisional low.
Three consecutive draws has left Arsenal down in seventh place and after a disappointing showing in the week, the visitors should get back to winning ways this weekend.

Arsenal to win @1.85
Swansea (2.50) v Southampton (3.00); Draw (3.40)
Southampton will be looking to build on their comfortable 4-0 victory over Newcastle, with a trip to south Wales this weekend.
The Saints appear to be starting to click into gear under Ronald Koeman with new additions Toby Alderwield, Dusan Tadic and Graziano Pelle all beginning to show their worth.
Southampton have not lost in any of their last five meetings against Swansea and a new cutting edge up front should see the south coast side at least get on the score-sheet at least once here.
Hosts Swansea will be hoping their 4-2 defeat to Premier League leaders Chelsea is not a sign to come, after winning three of their opening four games in the Premiership.
Garry Monk’s side has kept two clean sheets in the league so far, but the long-term injury to defender Jordi Amat is a blow to the Swans.
Southampton have lost only one of their last eight games in the league and the visitors look well priced to avoid defeat in the Premier League this weekend.
