Premier League acca: Best bets for Saturday

Adrian Mills' accumulator for Saturday's action includes a win for Wolves and a high-scoring affair at Villa Park.

The feast of festive football continues with a cracking card of Premier League action on Saturday. 

Chelsea secured a late winner against Crystal Palace on Wednesday night and the Blues head to Luton this weekend.

Palace entertain London rivals Brentford, while Aston Villa will be looking to bounce back from their Old Trafford collapse at home to Burnley. 

Man Utd impressed in the second-half against Villa and the Red Devils will be looking for more of the same at Nottingham Forest. 

We have three tips to make up a Saturday Premier League acca that pays over 8/1.


Luton or draw v Chelsea @ 13/10

Aston Villa v Burnley: over 2.5 goals @ 4/7

Wolves to beat Everton @ 6/4

Accumulator pays 8/1

Luton v Chelsea (12.30)

Chelsea found a way past Crystal Palace on Wednesday, but it was anything but a convincing performance.

The narrative that the Blues are creating plenty of chances, but failing to convert them continues to grow and it’s almost as if all other factors can be ignored. 

Chelsea have lost four away matches on the bounce. They were hammered 4-1 by Newcastle, lost the shot count 20-10 in a 2-1 defeat at Man Utd and they have been stuffed by Everton and Wolves. 

Yes, Mauricio Pochettino’s men have created chances in those matches, but they have also looked ill-disciplined and wide open at the back and it takes more than just charging forward to win football matches. 

Luton have beaten Newcastle at Kenilworth Road, they held Liverpool to a draw and gave Arsenal and Man City major problems.

The Hatters won at Sheffield United on Tuesday night and Rob Edwards’ men look to have every chance of taking a point against the underpriced Blues on Saturday. 

Aston Villa v Burnley (15.00)

Aston Villa threw away a two-goal lead and lost 3-2 at Manchester United in midweek, but that’s unlikely to change the approach of manager Unai Emery. 

There have been 45 goals in Aston Villa’s last 13 Premier League matches and the Villans’ 14 home matches in all competitions are averaging 3.2 goals per game this season. 

Vincent Kompany is another manager unwilling to compromise on his principles and Burnley continue to go on the front foot.

The Clarets kept their first away clean sheet of the Premier League season at Fulham last time out, but that is unlikely to be repeated at Villa Park. 

That said, Burnley have looked dangerous going forward and Kompany’s men can contribute to a high-scoring contest. 

Wolves v Everton (15:00)

Everton have been performing with credit in recent weeks, but the Toffees put a huge effort into a 3-1 defeat to Man City on Wednesday night and that could leave its mark against Wolves. 

Gary O’Neil’s men have enjoyed a fantastic festive period beating Chelsea 2-1 and hammering Brentford 4-1, and Wolves can make it three victories on the bounce on Saturday.
