Premier League: Count on Chelsea in treble…

There are three Premier League matches to enjoy this evening, starting with Crystal Palace hosting Chelsea.

The race is really on for Champions League qualification for next season, with Chelsea, Manchester United and Leicester all winning over the weekend.

Chelsea know they have to keep on winning to maintain their fourth spot, and will feel confident of turning Palace over tonight having won their last four clashes. We think they will with Palace struggling for goals.

Watford take on Norwich in the second match, and we expect the hosts to win.

Both teams have struggled for wins this season, but Norwich have virtually stopped scoring and look defensively weak.

Watford have beaten each of the teams below them in the league already this season, and we think they will do so again tonight.

The late game sees Arsenal host Leicester at the Emirates, in what looks a very tricky game to call.

Leicester have the incentive of Champions League football to play for, and in Jamie Vardy they have a top striker who can take advantage of any defensive slips.

That said, Arsenal have started winning games and their victory at Wolves on Saturday was an impressive result. They are unbeaten against Leicester in their last 22 home league games.

We think Arsenal are likely to win this game, but wouldn’t be surprised with a draw either. Consequently, we’re going to take the lesser odds associated with the home/draw double chance.


Chelsea, Watford and Arsenal/Draw as a treble, 1 pt, at approximately 5/2
