English Premier League 2023/24 Matchweek 19 – Betting tips & Predictions

EPL 2023/24 Matchweek 19

All 20 Premier League teams will be back in action on Boxing Day, with a fantastic round of fixtures in prospect. 

Arsenal find themselves top of the pile, with Liverpool and Aston Villa hot on their heels.

World champions Manchester City have work to do if they are to catch them, but they can never be written off with EPL betting sites, whilst it is Sheffield United who endure the ignominy of being bottom at Christmas. 

Matchweek 19 Fixtures

Newcastle United vs Nottingham Forest

St James’s Park, 27th December 2023 – 00.30

Top 4 chasing Newcastle United will be looking to put their strong home record to good effect, as they take on Nottingham Forest. 

Toon haven’t hit the heights of last season under Eddie Howe and with plenty of other sides improving too, they have work to do if they are to be playing Champions League football next season. 

Nottingham Forest are being tipped with a few betting apps to be battling the drop this season and whilst they have a new manager in Nuno Espirito Santo, they will probably find this tough going here at St James’s Park.

Bournemouth vs Fulham

Vitality Stadium, 27th December 2023 – 03.00

Bournemouth have been catching the eye with soccer betting sites of late for their excellent results and they will be looking to keep things going against Fulham.

The Cherries left it late to beat Nottingham Forest last time out and look to have a top half finish within their grasp this term. 

Fulham meanwhile were stunned by Burnley at home but they have been showing serious signs of development under Marco Silva. 

This will be a good one, with an entertaining draw potentially on the cards.

Sheffield United vs Luton Town

Bramall Lane, 27th December 2023 – 03.00

A potential relegation battle grips here, as Sheffield United take on Luton Town. 

The Blades have made clear improvements under Chris Wilder and look to be mounting a serious survival bid already. 

Luton meanwhile are going about their business very well under Rob Edwards and their win over Newcastle United last time out was a statement one. 

Calling this one is tough, with home advantage perhaps telling for Sheffield United.

Burnley vs Liverpool

Turf Moor, 27th December 2023 – 05.30 

Title chasing Liverpool will be looking to set the pace on Boxing Day, as they travel to a revitalised Burnley side. 

For Vincent Kompany’s Clarets, this will be a chance to have a crack at one of the big boys, in front of their passionate home support. 

Meanwhile, Liverpool will want to get back to winning ways – having drawn their last two games against Manchester United and Arsenal. 

Burnley will be up for this one but Liverpool should win on the road.

Manchester United vs Aston Villa

Old Trafford, 27th December 2023 – 08.00

Soul searching will be the order of the day at Old Trafford, as a struggling Manchester United side take on Aston Villa. 

United have been very poor this season and it looks as if the top 4 may even be beyond Erik ten Hag’s side at this point. 

Aston Villa meanwhile are flying high in the top 4 and they will see this as a chance to prove their worth in the Champions League mix this season. 

This will be a good game and although Villa are confident, a draw could well be the outcome.

Chelsea vs Crystal Palace

Stamford Bridge, 28th December 2023 – 07.30

Following yet another defeat for Chelsea, this time at the hands of Wolves – it is now crunch time in the Premier League. 

The blues were outfought at Molineux and know they will be in for a serious challenge here against a plucky Crystal Palace side. 

For the Eagles, this is a true free hit and they will be feeling confident they can get a result on the road here. 

However, Chelsea need a win and they may well manage to get it at Stamford Bridge.

Brentford vs Wolves

Gtech Community Stadium, 28th December 2023 – 07.30

Two sides hoping to crack the top half are Brentford and Wolves and the pair clash in West London. 

Injuries have checked the progress of Brentford but they remain a side that all soccer betting sites are very wary of. 

Wolves meanwhile are much better at home than they are on the road but they will certainly have a crack here. 

This should be a super watch, with Brentford most likely to prevail.

Everton vs Manchester City

Goodison Park, 28th December 2023 – 08.15

A resurgent Everton side will be looking to test themselves against current club world champions, Manchester City. 

Everton have been finding form of late and will be looking to ramp up the atmosphere from the off here at Goodison Park. 

Manchester City meanwhile return to Premier League action, knowing that a win here would enable them to keep pace with the sides above. 

City have a tough schedule and injuries to manage and they could drop more points on the road here in Merseyside.

Brighton vs Tottenham

AMEX Stadium, 29th December 2023 – 07.30

A blockbuster clash is on the agenda on the South coast, as Brighton host Tottenham. 

The Seagulls haven’t hit the heights of previous seasons, but they are always an entertaining watch and they will fancy their chances here. 

Tottenham however are playing with renewed vim and vigour and they look well placed to have a real crack at least the top 4 this season. 

This should be a good one, which Tottenham will fancy prevailing in.

Arsenal vs West Ham

Emirates Stadium, 29th December 2023 – 08.15 

A London derby concludes the schedule, with Arsenal hosting West Ham in what should be a belter at the Emirates Stadium. 

The Gunners are top of the table at Christmas, and they will be eager to keep the chasing pack at bay over the festive period. 

West Ham had too much for Manchester United last time out and will take heart from that result on the road here. 

This won’t be a landslide, but Arsenal should prevail in this one at home.
