The main focus today may be on Wembley and the Carabao Cup final (see here for our betting suggestion), but there are also two Premier League games scheduled.
The early game sees Crystal Palace entertain Tottenham. The Eagles have had some bad luck with injuries of late and now face a Spurs side that has been playing very well against much stronger opposition in both the Champions League as well as the Premier League. A continuation of that form should result in an away win.
Tottenham striker Harry Kane has been in red hot form, scoring 19 goals in his last 14 away league games, including three hat tricks. Kane now has serious competition for the Golden Boot, with Mo Salah scoring again yesterday, and we’ll take a punt that he responds, this time with a brace.
The second game is a big one – Manchester United versus Chelsea and Jose Mourinho taking on Antonio Conte.
The two managers do not get on, but at least this time they have managed to avoid trading insults. However, this means there will be plenty of heat in this game.
Both teams came out of their Champions League clashes midweek with draws, but United will feel the happier despite Chelsea putting in the better performance.
Yet as well as Chelsea played against Barcelona, their season has been very patchy and it’s highly debatable whether they could follow up with another stellar game.
We’ll take Manchester United to win this clash–they need to to climb back into second position–and think they will do so without conceding.
Kane to score a brace, 1 pt, at 100/30, Betfair
Manchester United to win to nil, 1 pt, at 4/1, Betfair
