The penultimate round of Premier League fixtures kick off on Tuesday evening and with every single game being shown live on TV we’ve delved into all the stats to help you make the most of this midweek bonanza with an array of bet builder tips.

The likes of Manchester United vs Fulham and Brighton vs Manchester City may be effectively dead rubber affairs but the return of fans to stadiums is sure to add an extra element to the fixtures, while Chelsea vs Leicester is one of the few remaining fixtures that carries some real weight as both teams battle to consolidate their top four position. Elsewhere, Southampton face a Leeds side who still have a very slim chance of making Europe next term.

Match result markets

It’s hard to look beyond Manchester United here as the Old Trafford faithful return to back their team against a relegated Fulham side that have lost seven of their last eight Premier League matches.

Elsewhere we’re also backing Manchester City at the Amex Stadium. Brighton may have the home support on their side but they’re facing a Citizens outfit that have won 20 of their last 21 competitive away games.

Both teams to score markets

Manchester United may be hot favourites but Fulham should at least be able to land a counter-punch at Old Trafford. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s defence has looked a shadow of its former self without the injured Harry Maguire and with seven goals shipped in their last three games expect goals at both ends.

I’m fully expecting the same outcome in both games on the south coast as well. Southampton have seen both teams score in eight of their last nine home games while Brighton, inspired by Danny Welbeck’s form, can find the net against a Man City side that have conceded in five of their last six away games.

Goals markets

Sticking to the south coast, Southampton vs Leeds promises to be a high scoring match. Ralph Hasenhuttl’s Saints have put three past Crystal Palace and Fulham in their last two games and face a Leeds side that have scored seven times in their last two. Over 2.5 goals has landed in four of Southampton’s last five at home and Marcelo Bielsa has rarely deviated from his gung-ho approach, so backing the overs is recommended here.

On the flip side of the coin, Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea are a dream for under 2.5 goals backers. 23 of their 27 games under the German have produced fewer than three goals and with both sides desperate to avoid defeat in their pursuit of a top four spot this could be a very tight and cagey game.

Goalscorer markets

With a low scoring game expected at Stamford Bridge, Pep-roulette in full force at the Amex and Southampton and Leeds sharing out the goals among their squad there is little in the way of value in the goalscorer markets. That is, until you cast your eyes up north.

Mason Greenwood’s introduction against Liverpool improved the balance of Manchester United immeasurably and the young academy talent is expected back in the starting lineup on Tuesday. He has scored eight goals in his last 12 appearances and will have the backing of the home crowd, so he looks the best option to find the net.

Shot markets

Sticking with Old Trafford, Bruno Fernandes to have 4+ shots looks a solid value option. The Portuguese maestro – who also enjoys free-kick and penalty duties – has had at least four pops at goal in six of his last eight Premier League appearances, including having six attempts against Liverpool last time out.

Over at St. Mary’s I’m plumping for Jack Harrison to hit the target. The versatile Leeds midfielder has tested the keeper at least once in five of his last six outings and was in fine form as he scored and provided two assists at Burnley on Saturday.

Manchester City’s constant rotation makes the player markets a bit less appealing at the Amex, but over at Stamford Bridge it’s worth looking at Jamie Vardy to have 1+ shot on target. The Leicester hitman may be suffering a downturn in goalscoring form but he’s still tested the keeper at least once in five of his last six Premier League appearances.
