Leicester City v Chelsea
The last four league meetings between these teams have produced just three goals so ‘Under 2.5’ goals at odds against could be worth exploring in Saturday’s early kick-off. I had an interview last week and they asked me if I could perform under pressure. I said sadly no but I do a cracking Bohemian Rhapsody.
Betting: Under 2.5 goals at 6/5 (Bet365)
Bournemouth v Aston Villa
Two clubs battling for their lives down among the dead men and I wouldn’t put anyone off backing the draw here. However Jack Grealish anytime at 3/1 also looks tidy. His stats this season are comparable to anyone’s and he’s just a baller. I’ve said it before and I will say it again. If I’m a ‘Big Six’ boss, Grealish would be my priority in the summer. Over any other player. Just don’t ruffle his barnet…

Crystal Palace v Sheffield United
Brexit Day is upon us then. Rupture or rapture? Am actually curious as to how Neil Warnock voted so you you are reading Neil just post in the comments please. Folk from Blighty promised a better life even though it will cost them double to get to Benidorm, and worse than that they will only be allowed to bring back 200 fags. But let’s see how it all plays out eh? Anyway, the Blades have had a bit of a wobble in recent weeks and Palace, who should be fresh, could be the bet. The Eagles had no FA Cup tie at the weekend so have had more than 10 days to prepare for this.
Betting: Crystal Palace to win at 43/20 (888Sport)
Liverpool v Southampton
The Reds have the best defence in the Premier League so why then does this old maverick feel a stirring in his skimps for Liverpool to win and both teams to score here at 7/4? Maybe it’s because Southampton have scored in every one of their last 11 away games.
Betting: Liverpool to win and both teams to score at 7/4 (Bet365)
Newcastle United v Norwich City
If the bookies are to be believed the Canaries are doomed (1/10 now for the drop) and with the Toon unbeaten in their last six matches in all competitions they look good things at odds against on Tyneside. Steve Bruce night drink pints of gravy but he’s been magic for the Magpies this season.
Betting: Newcastle to win at 5/4 (888Sport)
Watford v Everton
Everton are 12th and have lost only one of their last nine. Also, Everton reject bid of £85m for Richarlison from Barcelona? F**k right off. If true, Bill Kenwright needs a medical, never mind the jinky Brazilian.
Betting: Everton to win 1-0 at 17/2 (Bet365)
West Ham v Brighton
I can’t see many queuing up to smash West Ham here. The east London outfit have never beaten Brighton in the Premier League in five attempts (D2 L3) and have looked hopeless in recent weeks.
Betting: Brighton to win at 7/4 (Bet365)
Manchester United v Wolves
Ole’s mob have been leaking goals at home in recent weeks and were proper s**t in their last league outing at Old Trafford, losing 2-0 to Burnley. That doesn’t condone those absolute knobjockeys launching fireworks at Ed Woodward’s house by the way. That said I’m all over Raul Jimenez scoring at the Theatre of Dreams. The Mexican has scored three in his last two games and should cause Harry Maguire and Co all manner of problems.
Betting: Jimenez to score anytime at 9/4 (Paddy Power)
Burnley v Arsenal
After back to back wins Burnley are level on points with the Arsenal. However the Clarets have lost their last 11 matches against Gunners in all competitions, a run stretching back almost a decade to March 2010. Furthermore, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang loves playing Sean Dyche’s team. The Gabon star has scored seven goals in four Premier League appearances against Burnley, averaging a goal every 51 minutes.
Betting: Aubameyang to score first at 7/2 (888Sport)
Tottenham v Manchester City
Pep Guardiola’s men have won their last five Premier League away matches in north London and are heavy odds on to beat Mourinho’s Spurs on Sunday. Sans Harry Kane it’s just hard to see how Spurs deal with City, who have scored two or more goals in 30 of their 38 matches in all competitions so far this season. Also, Tottenham have kept just two clean sheets in 12 Premier League matches under Mourinho. So do yourself a big favour and following your Sunday dinner enjoy a succulent slice of Man City minus one this Sunday.
Betting: Manchester City (-1) to win at 7/5 (Paddy Power)
