Newcastle To Beat Aston Villa @ 7/5 - 18:00, Wednesday 24th June
Newcastle shocked Sheffield United with an impressive 3-0 win at St James’ on Sunday. The Magpies looked sharp from the outset, and even before the John Egan red card, they looked the better side. Second half goals from Allan Saint-Maximin, Matt Ritchie and Joelinton were enough to give Newcastle their biggest league win of the season. Considering their upcoming fixtures, Steve Bruce’s side have a solid chance of making a late run into the top 10. They face Aston Villa on Wednesday, who despite having already played 2 games, looked a step behind Chelsea on Sunday. Jack Grealish has failed to make an impact so far, and even the return of John McGinn has left Villa without much hope. They’ll need a completely different performance tonight, but Newcastle’s previous performance wouldn’t have filled them with confidence.
Man United To Beat Sheffield United @ 20/49 - 18:00, Wednesday 24th June
Manchester United weren’t at their best in a 1-1 draw against Spurs, but there was plenty of reason to be hopeful. Paul Pogba made his return to the squad and was influential in the second half, showing glimpses of a potential partnership with Bruno Fernandes. Fernandes himself was again on the scoresheet and was as influential as ever. That game was last Friday, giving Manchester United two extra days of recovery time, which could come in vital at this point of the season. Sheffield United on the other hand will be playing their 3rd game in a week, and although they might be fitter for it, their performance against Newcastle proved otherwise. Particularly defensively, the Blades looked leggy and the suspension of John Egan won’t help their cause. Chris Wilder has built his side around solid defensive work, and without that, they’ll be overwhelmed by a clearly superior Manchester United side.
Wolves To Beat Bournemouth @ 5/9 - 18:00, Wednesday 24th June
It’s no surprise that a team as fit and technically sound as Wolves were hardly affected by the midseason break. Nuno Espirito Santo’s squad is so strong that Adama Traore can effectively be used as a super sub, and his introduction completely changed the game against West Ham. His pace down the right hand side set up Raul Jiminez’s header, before a superb Pedro Neto volley wrapped up a 2-0 win. That performance was the polar opposite to the one we saw from Bournemouth against Crystal Palace. The Cherries looked woeful all across the pitch, with David Brooks re-introduction to the side the only real positive for Eddie Howe. If Bournemouth don’t pick up points soon, their stint in the Premier League could well be over. A trip to Wolves would hardly have been the game they would choose to start that turnaround.
