We’ve a stacked card of Premier League action on the first Sunday of the year as the relegation-threatened and mid-table squabblers get down to business at 2pm before the wannabe title-contenders Chelsea and Liverpool take centre stage in the Super Sunday 4.30pm kick-off.


We were due to have four matches all kicking off at 2pm but Southampton v Newcastle has since been postponed. So, instead of a dishy four-fold acca we’ve got a treble to get stuck into instead.

Brentford v Aston Villa: Under 0.5 Brentford Goals

TV: Sky Sports Premier League

Or as it’s known to you and me away from the betting markets – Villa to keep a clean sheet. Steven Gerrard’s biggest achievement at Rangers wasn’t making them competitive again, it was making them consistent and trustworthy. The hallmark of that was clean sheets against bad teams, and we’re seeing that early doors at Villa now.

A 2-0 win over Brighton, a 2-0 win over Norwich and a 95th-minute consolation at Palace suggests we’re seeing the same. Given Brentford have fired blanks in their last two games, I like the look of this here.

Everton v Brighton: Brighton and the Draw

If we discounted goals conceded in the last five minutes of halves, Brighton’s only losses this year would have come to Man City and, well, Everton.

But that’s a very different time and place. Everton are in freefall and look sure to move on from Rafa Benitez. Brighton’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea is a great festive boost to them and I don’t really see any situation in which Brighton leave Liverpool pointless.

Leeds v Burnley: Burnley and the Draw

One of these teams has lost their last three games while the other has lost just once since October 17th. It’s a bit of a wild season for Burnley and their lowly league position comes with a huge asterisk pointing out that their five games in hand on Man City could see them put a better title fight than Liverpool, rather trying to claw themselves away from Newcastle and co.

Once they get some games under their belt – and they will have by the time this kicks off – I think they’re good for a point.
