Eastbridge Betting Review – Thursday 4th December
Chelsea v Tottenham Hotspur
Tottenham’s dire record at Stamford Bridge continued last night as they lost 3-0 to the league leaders. Chelsea turned on the style to remain unbeaten in 23 games in all competitions to equal their club record. The blues were without Diego Costa who has been prolific this season but it made no difference with Hazard instrumental and both Remy and Drogba on the score sheet. Chelsea covered their Asian handicap of -1.25 as they won their 7th game at home this season, 6 of those by 2 or more.
Sunderland v Man City
Man City made it 3 league wins on the bounce in an impressive display over a Sunderland side that had beaten the Citizens in four previous encounters 1-0 at the Stadium of Light. Sergio Aguero scored a goal in each half to take his season’s goal total to 19, proving he is one of the best striker in the world. City remain 6 points behind Chelsea but are improving week on week, their early season slip-ups to the likes of West Ham and Stoke are well behind them. City’s 4-1 victory last night saw them cover their Asian handicap of -1 comfortably.
Everton v Hull
Hull climbed out of the bottom 3 with a draw against an Everton side that are now without a win in 5 league games. Everton took the lead as Lukaku scored his 6th goal of the season but their defence looked frail as they went on to concede in the second half. Steve Bruce will be hoping the draw last night will give his side some confidence after losing their last 4 league games. Everton looked a good value bet -1 @ 1.95 but a poor second half cost the Toffee’s and the punters.
Arsenal v Southampton
Alexis Sanchez continued his emphatic start to the season, scoring his 9th league goal and earning Arsenal a 1-0 victory over Southampton who are now just 3 points ahead of the Gunners. The Saints have never won at Arsenal in the Premier League and only managed 1 shot on target last night as they slipped to their 2nd successive defeat with Man Utd to play next Monday. Arsenal dominated but it wasn’t until the 89th minute, after 19 shots, they snatched victory. If you were on the advised trade of Arsenal -0.75, you would have picked up half a win.
