David Easson previews the Premier League - Thursday 1st February 2024


Premier League Predictions for Thursday

David Easson

We'll start with the game at the London Stadium, which is West Ham against Bournemouth and The Cherries have had a couple of heavy defeats after a really good run of form - beaten 4-0 at home by Liverpool and 3-1 away at Tottenham Hotspur, but in the Premier League in total, particularly away from home, they really have been great in recent weeks. They weren't before that, but something clicked in November when they went on that run of four consecutive away victories at Sheffield United, Palace, Manchester United and Nottingham Forest.

It has come to a bit of a grinding halt with those two big defeats, but you still think they have got it in them to turn things around, particularly at a side like West Ham United. However, West Ham’s home form is particularly good. They are unbeaten in their last five at home, they've conceded just three goals and none in their last three at home. I do wonder here whether Bournemouth have got it in them to completely win this game or if they can just grab something, particularly the way they score goals away from home, I think they can score, but I think West Ham will also score. They might have Kudus from AFCON, we'll wait and see if he starts that game but I do think a score draw at 17/5

 

I was looking for a score draw at Wolves-Manchester United even though I am tempted, incredibly tempted by a Wolves home victory. They're in really really good form at home and generally in fact: Wolves are 7 unbeaten in all competitions. They've won five of those. They won the particularly feisty game in the Black Country Derby in the FA Cup on Sunday and they want a bit of revenge from that opening game of the season where they were beaten, but they really should have won at Old Trafford on the opening day.

Wolves have lost just twice at home all season against Brighton and Liverpool. They've beaten City, Tottenham and Chelsea at Molineux, whereas Manchester United well, they just struggle from game to game. They're either reacting to some terrible performance, or they are somehow putting in something awful week to week and off the off the pitch it's pretty bad as well. ETH is struggling, bumbling along to the end of the season, although the ghost of Jose Mourinho is in the background.

They drew 2-2 with Tottenham in their last league outing and I think that the 2-2 or something like that score draw is the one for me in this one as well.

I think Thursday night, completing the midweek match week will be two score draws between Wolves and Manchester United and West Ham and Bournemouth and the price for that double with 17/5 for West Ham game and 7/2 for the Wolves-Man United game and that is an 18 /1 double.
