With the Premier League title chase really stealing plenty of the headlines, we look set for another stacked weekend schedule. So, for those of you looking to place a Saturday acca, we have found a handful of helpful tips that are worth keeping an eye out for.
Saturday February 25th
BST 15:00 Leicester vs Arsenal
Managing to make a crucial return to winning ways last weekend as they picked up a last-gasp 4-2 victory away at Aston Villa, Arsenal will be desperate for a repeat display here. Watching Manchester City eventually have to settle for a costly 1-1 draw away at Nottingham Forest, the Gunners have found a route back to the top of the Premier League table. While Mikel Arteta’s side might have endured somewhat of a February wobble, Saturday’s guests are enjoying a famous domestic campaign. Opening this weekend’s fixtures holding a two-point buffer over the defending champions, Arsenal are sat in pole position to claim a first Premier League crown since 2004. Looking to lay down another marker here, Arteta’s side would have been glad to witness Leicester come crashing back down to earth at Old Trafford. While the Foxes might have opened February with a major flurry, Saturday’s hosts were last seen getting hit with a 3-0 drumming at the hands of Manchester United. With some in their camp still looking over their shoulder at the drop zone, Brendan Rodgers’ side should also be worried by a downbeat record against the title contenders. Including a 4-2 defeat when the two sides last met on August 13th, Leicester have lost each of their previous four consecutive meetings against Arsenal.
Tip: Arsenal win & Both teams to score @ 12/5
15:00 West Ham vs Nottingham Forest
Mounting a stunning late flurry at home against defending champions Manchester City last weekend as they snatched a famous 1-1 draw on home soil, Nottingham Forest are enjoying an eye-catching Premier League return. While the Reds might have come under some scrutiny for their blockbuster approach in the transfer market, Steve Cooper’s side are sat in pole position to extend on their top-flight status in 2023. With the mood around the City Ground at a continued high, the one-time Swansea boss should be smelling the chance for his side to make what could be a season-defining statement here. Holding a five-point buffer over the drop zone, Forest have now lost just one of their last seven top-flight battles – a run that stems all the way back to December 27th. Gaining a string of plaudits since returning from the World Cup’s winter break, they will be looking to cash in on a West Ham squad who are enduring a Premier League nightmare. Last seen getting hit with a toothless 2-0 defeat away at London rivals Tottenham, David Moyes’ men have slipped into the bottom-three and are really fighting for their future. Showing a host of issues this season, the ex-Manchester United boss has seen his side claim just five top-flight victories on either side of the festive interval.
Tip: Nottingham Forest draw no bet @ 11/4
15:00 Everton vs Aston Villa
While Everton might still find themselves at the heart of a Premier League relegation scrap, Saturday’s hosts have managed to claim a crucial boost since welcoming Sean Dyche to the club. Opening up Dyche’s tenure in charge with a famous 1-0 victory at home against Arsenal on February 4th, the Blues have found a route out of the drop zone. With the mood in their camp at the highest it has been in recent memory, the ex-Burnley boss saw his side claim another crucial victory last weekend. Eventually edging their way past fellow bottom-three scrappers Leeds on home soil, the Toffees have found quite a wave of momentum over recent weeks. Simply looking to extend on their charge for top-flight survival here, Everton should be relishing Aston Villa’s arrival on Saturday afternoon. Last seen eventually getting hit with an action-packed 4-2 loss at home against Arsenal, Unai Emery’s side are enduring a recent wobble. Along with opening February with another 4-2 defeat at the hands of Leicester, the ex-Villarreal boss has seen his squad lose each of their last three straight Premier League outings. Likewise, along with shipping 11 strikes on that three-match losing run, it should also be noted that Villa have recorded just a single clean in their last seven domestic matchups across all formats.
