27th February: Wednesday’s Football Accumulator – 10/1

With the fixtures really starting to pile up both in England and Scotland, we here at Soccer News have found a handful of helpful tips to boost your midweek acca:

Wednesday 27th February

BST 19:45 Arsenal vs Bournemouth

While Arsenal’s problems away from North London may have been highlighted this season, Unai Emery’s side have continued to shine at the Emirates. Coming off the back of a 2-0 win over Southampton on Sunday, the Gunners once again find themselves in the top four and will have their sights firmly set on securing Champions League football. Now enjoying an eight-match winning run on home soil, Arsenal have remarkably not lost a Premier League fixture at the Emirates since a 2-0 loss to Manchester City on the opening weekend. Finding the net in Sunday’s victory over the Saints, the former PSG boss will be growing more excited by the ongoing form of Frenchman Alexandre Lacazette. Appearing to be Emery’s number one choice to play in a central role, the 27-year-old has four goals in his last five Premier League appearances. Also scoring in his last four consecutive matches at the Emirates, Lacazette should be confident of extending that tally in midweek. Despite sitting in the top half of the table, Bournemouth’s form away from the South Coast has been nothing short of abysmal. Eddie Howe’s side have now lost their last eight top-flight matches on the road and have conceded 15 goals in just their last five away matches. Without a win away from the Vitality since the end of October and leaking goals for fun, we’re backing Lacazette to enjoy another successful night.

Tip: Alexandre Lacazette to score anytime @ 10/11

19:45 St. Johnstone vs Hibernian 

After turning to former Leeds boss Paul Heckingbottom to replace Neil Lennon earlier in the month, few would have expected Hibs’ impressive resurge. Coming off the back of a 4-2 win away at Dundee, Wednesday’s visitors are now enjoying a three-match winning run and will have the opportunity to extend their buffer in the top six to three points in midweek. It will be their form in the final third really starting to impress fans around Easter Road. Booking their spot in the quarterfinals of this year’s Scottish FA Cup and now scoring nine goals in their last three appearances, Heckingbottom will be looking for the red hot Marc McNulty to carry on his very eye-catching run. Bagging a brace against Dundee over the weekend, the former Coventry man has now bagged four goals in just his last three matches across all competitions. Really starting to shine following his Deadline Day move to Scotland, McNulty should be relishing the chance to face a St. Johnstone side drastically short on form and confidence. Putting on another lackluster display in their 2-0 loss at home to Aberdeen over the weekend, the Saints are enduring a seven-match winless run and more worrying for Tommy Wright, his side have lost six of those contests. Also now losing four of their last five Premiership matches at McDiarmid Park and conceding 10 goals in their last six home outings, Hibernian’s leading man should be looking to extend his tally on Wednesday.

Tip: Marc McNulty to score anytime @ 11/5

20:00 Manchester City vs West Ham

Picking up their first piece of Silverware over the weekend, Pep Guardiola will now be demanding his side reclaim their spot at the top of the Premier League table. Chasing down a one-point buffer to Liverpool in the race for the title, the former Barcelona boss will be most impressed by the performances of his side at the Etihad. Putting six past Chelsea in their last showing on home soil, the Sky Blues have now won their last seven home matches in Manchester and have scored 35 goals on that winning run. Led by Sergio Aguero, who has now bagged seven goals in his last four top-flight appearances, Guardiola’s side comfortably hold the best-attacking stats across Europe’s elite divisions. The defending champions should also be boosted by their very impressive record against the Hammers. Picking up a 4-0 win in the reverse fixture back in November, City have now scored an astonishing 22 goals in their last six meetings with West Ham. While former City boss Manuel Pelgrinni sees his new side sat inside the top half of the table, the Londoners have struggled on the road once again this season. Unable to win any of their last five matches away from the capital, including an embarrassing 4-2 loss against League One outfit AFC Wimbledon, Wednesday could prove to be another tough night on the road for the Hammers.
