Premier League Gameweek 20 Tips: 12/1 Accumulator

The Premier League's festive period continues at a furious pace this weekend with Gameweek 20 taking place either side of the new year.

High-flyers Arsenal visit Fulham in what should be a gripping London Derby, while on New Year's Day Liverpool host Newcastle at Anfield.

We have picked out the best bets from Gameweek 20, selecting games at Luton, Aston Villa, Wolves and Nottingham Forest for our four-game acca, which pays out at 12/1.

Tip 1 – Luton or draw double chance v Chelsea @ 27/20

The great escape is on for Luton Town, who have narrowed the gap between themselves and 17th-placed Everton and they can avoid defeat against inconsistent Chelsea on Saturday.

Many would have expected the Hatters to be cut off from the rest of the pack at the bottom of the table at this stage of the season, but they have put in some valiant performances in the first half of the campaign.

They have collected 15 points from their 18 league matches, but nine of those points have been accrued since November 25th.

Indeed, Luton have won back-to-back games in the Premier League, beating Newcastle and Sheffield United either side of Christmas, and they can be troublesome opponents at Kenilworth Road.

Chelsea edged Crystal Palace 2-1 at Stamford Bridge last time out but it was not the most convincing performance with Mauricio Pochettino's men relying on an 89th-minute penalty from Noni Madueke.

The Blues have failed to win six of their nine away fixtures in the league this season and are worth opposing against Luton.

Tip 2 – Aston Villa to beat Burnley @ 4/11

Aston Villa dropped points in both of their matches either side of Christmas but they can respond with a win over Burnley this weekend.

Unai Emery's men were held to a 1-1 draw by Sheffield United at Villa Park last week, failing to win on home turf for the first time in the league this season, before they relinquished a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 to Manchester United on Tuesday.

It is a bit of a setback but, given their exceptional start and the busy schedule, results were inevitably going to drop off and they can dust themselves down and get back to winning ways against Burnley.

Villa have still won 12 of their 19 league fixtures this season and they have collected 28 points more than their opponents, who are in the thick of the relegation battle.

Vincent Kompany's side were pretty toothless in their 2-0 loss to Liverpool last time out, failing to record a single shot on target, and they have won just one of their last five games.

Tip 3 – Wolves to beat Everton @ 13/8

Wolves have started a stealthy ascension of the Premier League table, racking up three wins in December already, and they can see out 2023 with a win over Everton.

Things are starting to click for Gary O'Neil's men, who have beaten Burnley, Chelsea and Brentford this month, and they look a value bet to pick up another three points.

While the recent home win over Chelsea was a composed, counter-attacking performance, Wolves took things up a gear away to Brentford on Wednesday by crushing the Bees 4-1 having led 3-1 by the 28th minute of the contest.

Another quick start should see them on their way to three points against Everton at Molineux.

Everton have also enjoyed an upturn of results recently but their confidence will have taken a slight knock after successive defeats to Tottenham and Manchester City and, like Chelsea, they are worth opposing.

Tip 4 – Nottingham Forest or draw double chance v Manchester United @ 16/25

Rasmus Hojlund's first Premier League goal for Manchester United completed a stunning 3-2 comeback win over Aston Villa on Boxing Day but the Red Devils may fail to follow that up with a win over Nottingham Forest.

United took just four points from their first four league games in December and looked on course for another defeat against Villa when they fell 2-0 down after 26 minutes at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

But Erik ten Hag's men rallied and levelled the scores by the 71st minute thanks to a brace from Alejandro Garnacho before Hojlund found a late winner.

However, it is hard to ignore United's poor run of form beforehand. They have dropped points in five of their nine away assignments in the league and so could be worth taking on in the betting.

Hosts Nottingham Forest have had to deal with a catalogue of injuries recently, most notably to forward Taiwo Awoniyi, but that did not seem to faze them last time out as they ran out 3-1 winners against Newcastle.

That should give them a tremendous confidence boost ahead of this clash at the City Ground, where they can pick up at least a point.
