Welcome to your ATL Extra weekend email...

It’s FA Cup semi final weekend at Wembley, with Chelsea v Tottenham on Saturday (BBC) and Arsenal v Man City on Sunday (BT Sport).

We’re left with just the 6 games in the Premier League but that hasn’t stopped me, Paul Merson or Mark Lawrenson from chipping in with match Predictions. You can join in, too – see below.

But first, let’s take a look at the stats for the Super Sunday 4pm game...

THE BIG GAME – Liverpool v Crystal Palace

Premier League, Sun 4.30pm – Sky Sports

Match odds:

Liverpool 1/2 (1.50) Draw 7/2 (4.50)      Palace 6/1 (7.00)

This is 3rd v 15th in the Premier League table and the Home Win is odds-on at 1/2 (1.50). But Liverpool have won just 2 of their last 6 league encounters with Palace – and Sam Allardyce’s team have beaten both Arsenal and Chelsea in recent weeks...

The Match Result betting looks a bit hairy to me. Liverpool are in must-qualify-for-the-Champions-League mode – while Palace have been in Relegation Escape form.

Looking at the alternative markets, the stats on our Across the Leagues members-only website tell us that...

  • Liverpool have kept just 4 Clean Sheets at home all season (25%), and Palace have kept just 2 Clean Sheets in their 16 away games (13%)
  • Liverpool are the top-rated team in the Premier League for Both Teams to Score bets, with a 75% home record

Goals expected at both ends, then. And a look at the previous meetings shows each of the last 9 games in all comps between Liverpool and Palace have paid out on both Over 2.5 Goals and Both Teams to Score.

And in the Corners, Cards & Booking Points stats...

  • Liverpool have won the Most Corners in 75% of home games. And landed -3 and -4 Corner Handicap bets have paid out in 4 of their last 5 at Anfield
  • Liverpool haven’t received the Most Bookings in any of their last 5 home games

Several bookies are offering Goals, Corners, Cards & Bookings markets for Liverpool v Palace – including William Hill, Marathonbet and Skybet.

TOP 10 TABLES – 9 out of 10 for Walsall...

RUSKO64 was the top scoring player in our Premier League Mini League last weekend, with 3 Correct Scores and 6 out of 10 correct Match Results.
Last season’s winner CHRISSIE13 remains top of the overall table. With the end-of-season run-in approaching, can Chrissie go on and do the championship-winning double?

Here are my Predictions for this weekend’s Premier League games. And as ever, in the interests of comparison, here’s what Paul Merson on Sky Sports and Mark Lawrenson on the BBC think, too...





Bournemouth v Middlesbrough 1-0 3-1 2-0
Hull v Watford 1-1 3-1 2-1
Swansea v Stoke 2-2 2-1 1-1
West Ham v Everton 2-3 1-1 1-1
Burnley v Man Utd 1-0 1-2 1-1
Liverpool v Crystal Palace 2-1 3-2 2-0

I’ll be back next week with more stats and predictions for you.

Enjoy the football...
