With the games really starting to pile up, Saturday promises to produce plenty of action from across England’s footballing tiers. On that note, we here at Soccer News have found a handful of helpful tips to boost your weekend acca:
Saturday 29th December
BST 15:00 Tottenham vs Wolves
We backed Heung-Min Son to find the net on Boxing Day and we’re once again trusting the South Korean international will enjoy another successful afternoon this weekend. With Tottenham leapfrogging Manchester City to second place in the Premier League table, Mauricio Pochettino’s side have now scored a staggering 11 goals in their last two outings. Picking up a 5-0 win over Bournemouth in midweek, the form of Son has played a huge part in Spurs’ rise. Grabbing yet another brace against the Cherries on Boxing Day, the 26-year-old has now scored five goals in his last three matches across all competitions. Even more impressive, Tottenham’s #7 has now recorded six Premier League goals in his last five league appearances. Given Wolves’ inability to record a clean sheet away from Molineux, Son should be confident of extending his tally on Saturday. Nuno Espírito Santo’s side have recorded just one win on the road in their last five attempts and haven’t recorded an away day clean sheet since the start of October.
Tip: Son Heung-min to score anytime @ 7/5
15:00 Preston vs Aston Villa
While it might have been a sluggish start for last year’s playoff finalists, Aston Villa are enjoying a new lease of life under former Brentford boss Dean Smith. Coming off the back of a 1-0 win away at Swansea on Boxing Day, the Villans sit three points adrift of the playoffs and another victory on Saturday could see them end 2018 in the top-six. Smith will also be incredibly impressed by his sides form away from Villa Park. Unbeaten in their last four matches on the road, the visitors have also beaten the likes of Middlesbrough, Derby and Swansea on their travels, three teams who were tipped to lead the promotion race. Coming up against a Preston team who have now lost their last two on the bounce, including a 2-1 loss at home to Hull on Boxing Day, Villa should be confident of extending their unbeaten run. It is also worth noting that the last time Villa made the trip to Deepdale they came away with a very convincing 2-0 victory.
Tip: Away win @ 11/8
15:00 Birmingham vs Brentford
While Dean Smith’s arrival in the Midlands may have handed Aston Villa a much-needed boost, his former side Brentford are still struggling to fill his void at Griffin Park. Freefalling down the Championship table under new boss Thomas Frank, the Bees are coming off the back of a 1-1 draw away at Bristol City on Boxing Day. Saturday’s visitors have now recorded just one league win in their last eight attempts. Even more worrying for the London based side, Brentford have failed to win any of their last 14 Championship away games, a run that stems back to March. While the Bees might be looking over their shoulder at the bottom of the table, Birmingham are enjoying a very eye-catching run of form and will be dreaming of ending 2018 in the playoff positions. Coming off the back of an impressive showing in their 2-0 win over fellow top-six contenders Stoke on Wednesday, Gary Monk’s side sit just two points adrift of the playoff positions. It is also worth noting the Blues stellar record at St. Andrew’s. Birmingham have remarkably lost just one of their last 19 matches on home soil, the best record in the Championship.
Tip: Home win @ 13/10
