Liam Canning’s Friday night Pick 8 Preview

Friday 7.45 PM Arsenal v Liverpool kicks off and so does our £10,000 jackpot. Liam Canning has written us a preview for his syndicate fixtures that you can get involved with here.

Arsenal v Liverpool (Friday 7.45)

This is a hugely important clash for both teams on Friday night, given they occupy fourth and fifth. It is likely to be between these two teams, and Spurs, for the final position in the top four come the end of the season. This fixture promises goals, but really could go either way.

1, 2

Everton v Chelsea

Sam Allardyce has been the catalyst to Everton’s mini revolution since taking over. The English coach has recorded 13/15 available points, only dropping points away at Anfield, which was a very good draw. Antonio Conte’s future will continue to be a talking point, but Chelsea have looked strong in recent weeks. No clean sheets here.

X, 2

West Ham v Newcastle

David Moyes has done a stellar job since coming in, especially with a win against Chelsea and a draw at the Emirates to Arsenal. Rafa Benitez’s Newcastle are in a world of trouble, with talks still ongoing about a potential takeover. Moyes will deliver a Christmas three points for West Ham.

1, X

Swansea v Crystal Palace

Paul Clement has just been sacked by Swansea, so we could expect to see a resurgence in form for Swansea, especially with player-turned-caretaker-manager Leon Britton in charge. Roy Hodgson has got Crystal Palace out of the bottom three and into 14th. It is going to be a tight game.

X, 2

Stoke v West Brom

Mark Hughes is under immense pressure with news coming out from Stoke that if he fails to beat West Brom, he will be sacked. With that type of intensity on his shoulders, performances can drastically change. Alan Pardew hasn’t inspired the West Brom players as of yet, and finds themselves second from bottom, with a mighty mountain to climb.

1, X

Brighton v Watford

After all of Watford’s good results, they have seemingly fallen off a cliff in recent fixtures. Some incredibly poor results have now put them into 10th. There will be no hint of a relegation scrap, but their performances must improve drastically. Brighton have done better than expected, but they are far too inconsistent. The Seagulls will fancy their chances, though.


Burnley v Tottenham

The surprise story of the season so far has been Burnley, under Sean Dyche, who has them playing in an incredibly structured and organised manner. The Clarets love to keep things tight knit and have conceded the joint-least amount of goals this season. Spurs’ form has been disappointing and they are in for a tough time against Burnley, especially at Turf Moor.

X, 2

Leicester v Manchester United

Claude Puel rested some of his first-team players to focus on survival in the Premier League, which should be attainable now. Riyad Mahrez is back to his best and will be hoping he can impress José Mourinho with a view to move to Old Trafford. Manchester United were knocked out of the EFL Cup to Bristol City, and so their confidence levels will be low. They simply have to bounce back with a win.
