Chelsea vs West Bromwich Albion
Chelsea have yet to taste defeat under Thomas Tuchel, a full 14 games into the German’s tenure, and remarkably, the Blues haven’t conceded a single goal Stamford Bridge since their new taskmaster’s appointment seven home games ago.
WBA meanwhile, remain one of the Premier League’s least threatening teams, and the Baggies have failed to score in four of their last five top tier assignments. With Chelsea looking rock solid in defence, bettors are advised to back them to win to nil against a toothless Albion side.
Betting tip: Chelsea to win to nil
Leicester City vs Manchester City
Leicester City impressed everyone with their fine 3-1 FA Cup triumph over United before the international break, though turning the Red Devils’ Manchester rivals City over in similar style will be a far tougher task.
The relentless Citizens are purring, and having won 25 of their last 26 fixtures in all competitions, Pep Guardiola’s juggernaut should prove too powerful a force to resist at the King Power Stadium.
Betting tip: Manchester City to win
Arsenal vs Liverpool
Arsenal have only beaten Liverpool once in the clubs’ last 11 Premier League encounters since 2015, and that victory came against an unmotivated Reds team that already clinched the title last July.
Liverpool’s troubles at Anfield have been well documented, though they have won four of their last five league matches away from Merseyside, and Jurgen Klopp’s charges have the counter-punching power to punish the Gunners at the Emirates Stadium.
Betting tip: Liverpool to win
Southampton vs Burnley
Southampton and Burnley have identical points totals and goal difference figures after 29 games of the Premier League season, though the Clarets have the edge on their hosts in terms of recent form.
The Saints are drifting south towards the drop zone following a run of ten defeats in their last 12 assignments, while Burnley have been beaten only twice in their last nine games. Sean Dyche’s dogged troops took seven points from their last three trips to St. Mary’s Stadium, and that record suggests Burnley are priced generously in the double chance market for Sunday.
Betting tip: Burnley double chance
Newcastle United vs Tottenham Hotspur
Toxicity levels around Newcastle United are rising, and the Magpies’ 3-0 reverse against relegation rivals Brighton before the international break felt like a defining moment for the club and manager Steve Bruce.
In contrast, Tottenham have built a head of steam thanks to a surge of four wins in five matches, and Spurs can advance towards the top four with another victory against their hapless hosts in the north east.
Betting tip: Tottenham Hotspur to win
Aston Villa vs Fulham
Aston Villa looked flat and sapped of energy in the lead up to the international hiatus, and Dean Smith has a real job on to stop the Villains’ campaign petering out towards a limp finish.
Fulham meanwhile, are still within a hair’s breadth of safety, and the Cottagers’ only defeat in their last ten away tests came against champions-elect Man City. Expect Scott Parker’s improving side to take something from the game at Villa Park.
Betting tip: Fulham double chance
