Arsenal v West Ham – Arsenal to win to nil at 6/4

Arsenal have hardly put a foot wrong in the Premier League this season and can pick up where they left off against West Ham on Boxing Day.

They have the joint-best defensive record in the top flight with just eight goals conceded and have won four of their last five league games to nil. They have already beaten Chelsea, Liverpool and Spurs this season and face a West Ham side enduring a horrid season. 

The visitors have lost four of their last five in the league and failed to score in three of those, so backing Arsenal to grind out another three points with a clean sheet looks solid.

Union Saint-Gilloise vs Oostende – Union to win & both teams to score at 13/8

Oostende lost their last three away games in the league before the break, having failed to win in their last seven on their travels (D2 L5). They returned to action at Union Saint-Gilloise in midweek, losing 2-1 in that cup trip.

Now the visitors return, with the hosts out for a fourth successive win in all competitions. However, USG have seen both teams score in each of their last four, while the hosts have scored in eight of their last nine league games – including a 6-1 home loss in the last league meeting between the pair.

Second-placed USG have won three of the last four meetings between these two, while 17th-placed Oostende have lost all of their eight clashes with the top eight. Given that the hosts have conceded in 82% of their league games this term, back a home win and BTTS.

Rochdale vs Hartlepool – Hartlepool to win at 14/5

Hartlepool have only won three League Two games all season – but two of those wins have come in their last five games and they look overpriced at close to 3/1 to win at fellow strugglers Rochdale.

Pools claimed a 2-0 win at Crawley last time out and performed well in recent losses at promotion chasing Barrow and Stevenage. They were well beaten by former boss Dave Chaallinor’s Stockport, but aside from that they have looked better in recent weeks. In contrast, Rochdale are sliding and have lost each of their last three – including a demoralising 4-1 defeat at home to Harrogate – so I’m backing Hartlepool to claim the spoils in this relegation six-pointer.

Leicester vs Newcastle – Both teams to score at 4/6

Leicester and Newcastle were the two in-form teams in the Premier League before the World Cup break and they can serve up a high-scoring affair at the King Power Stadium on Boxing Day.

The Magpies sit top of the league’s form table going into Boxing Day with five wins from their last five games, while the Foxes have won four of their last five league fixtures, putting them second in those standings.

Both sides are also fresh from EFL Cup victories and have consequently been drawn against one another in the quarter-finals next month.

The likes of Miguel Almiron and James Maddison were in exceptional form before the break and both teams have scored in five of Newcastle’s seven road games, so that could be the best bet in the Midlands.

Mansfield vs Northampton – Northampton double chance at 8/11

Mansfield had Northampton’s measure in the League Two playoffs last season but the Cobblers look much-improved this term and could frustrate the Stags at Field Mill.

Jon Brady’s visitors took their unbeaten run to eight as they came from behind to beat Carlisle at Sixfields on Tuesday and they are flying high in third, some eight points better off than fifth-placed Mansfield.

While Cobblers are getting stronger as their injury situation improves, Mansfield’s form is starting to look patchy and their only two wins in their last eight league games have come against relegation-threatened duo Rochdale and Colchester.

Northampton have recorded away wins at second-placed Stevenage and fellow promotion hopefuls Bradford and Swindon, while also holding league leaders Leyton Orient to a draw at Brisbane Road. At 8/11, they make plenty of appeal to at least go home with a point.

Sunderland vs Blackburn – Sunderland to win at 13/10

Mid-table Sunderland have had a solid opening half to the Championship season and they can edge closer to the playoff positions by defeating third-placed Blackburn at the Stadium of Light.

The Black Cats have been boosted by the return from injury of key striker Ross Stewart, who came off the bench to grab their equaliser in a 1-1 draw at Hull last time out.

Stewart is set to return to the startling lineup and should link up with talented Manchester United loanee Amad Diallo, who has netted five goals in his last eight games.

Blackburn are having a decent season but they face a tough test on Wearside and may struggle to avoid defeat.

Salford vs Barrow – Salford to win at 11/8

Salford welcome Barrow on the back of a three-match winning streak, a 3-0 romp at Gillingham sandwiched by EFL Trophy successes against Bradford and Port Vale.

They are without a home win since the end of August in the league so those two cup wins at Moor Lane will have provided a timely lift for Neil Wood’s side.

And they are playing Barrow at a good time with the Cumbrian outfit on a run of five defeats in their last six, the sole success coming against hopeless Hartlepool.

The Bluebirds are punching above their weight but seem to have lost their way during the ongoing suspension of key midfielder Josh Kay, who is out again.
