Newcastle's John Carver looking above in table, not at relegation zone

John Carver says he's 'not giving up on anything' as Newcastle look to climb the Premier League table.

Newcastle coach John Carver is looking upwards rather than over his shoulder as the Premier League season enters its final phase.

The Magpies sit in 11th place in the table ahead of Saturday's home clash with struggling Aston Villa, 10 points clear of the drop zone, but four short of the top 10.

Newcastle's pride at stake in clash with Aston Villa

On Saturday, versus Aston Villa, Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul will be hoping his day will not be as busy as it was last week at Manchester City.
On Saturday, versus Aston Villa, Newcastle goalkeeper Tim Krul will be hoping his day will not be as busy as it was last week at Manchester City.

There's no love lost between Newcastle United and Aston Villa.

Period.

When Newcastle were sent crashing into the Football League by virtue of their 1-0 loss at Villa Park six years ago, it inflicted plenty of wounds on Geordie fans. It was bad enough seeing an expensively assembled team mismanaged by former manager Joe Kinnear, who laid the foundations for the drop before Chris Hughton (March to April) and Alan Shearer (April till late May) followed him in management, but by then it was too...

Premier League's best weekend bets

James Milner and Manchester City meet Raheem Sterling and Liverpool on Sunday.
James Milner and Manchester City meet Raheem Sterling and Liverpool on Sunday.

It's been a difficult week for Premier League clubs in European competition, with Manchester City and Arsenal suffering defeats at the hands of Barcelona and Monaco in the Champions League, and then Liverpool and Tottenham crashing out of the Europa League on Thursday night.

The biggest challenge here for some of England's leading clubs could be putting those setbacks behind them and re-focusing on domestic matters -- such as Liverpool and Manchester City, who meet on Sunday.

Here's a look at the best value bet for that match as well as three others, including Manchester United-Sunderland, Newcastle-Aston Villa and Stoke City-Hull City.


Manchester United (home) vs. Sunderland

Asian handicap: Man Utd -1.25 (-122) vs. Sunderland +1.25 (+114)
3-way line: Man Utd -282 / Sunderland +988 / Draw +427
PickCenter public consensus money line pick: 82 percent picked United
Total: 2.5 (Over -116, Under +106)

You need a masochistic streak to back Manchester United this season. Just when you think Louis van Gaal's side have turned a corner, they hit the wall or drive into a dead end.

Jonas Gutierrez could make an emotional and timely return for Newcastle after beating cancer just as Cheick Tiote's season looks to have come to a premature end.

The 31-year-old Argentina international has a chance of being named among the substitutes for Saturday's Premier League visit of Aston Villa, almost 17 months after his last appearance and more than 21 since he last pulled on the black...
