There are four more Premier League matches to enjoy Sunday, starting with Tottenham‘s home game with West Brom.
Spurs are long odds on to win today, but they did suffer their third successive league defeat against Chelsea on Thursday. It’s true West Brom have picked up only one point from their past four games and are 10 points from safety, but this means they desperately need the three points.
This could result in Tottenham having more space to play that would be expected, and we think this will suit Heung-min Son, particularly with star striker Harry Kane passed fit to start. Son has been very quiet over the last few games, but we’ll take him to net, at 5/6, now his partner in crime is back.
Next up sees Wolves taking on Leicester. We’ve been impressed with the way the Foxes have coped withoiut their star striker Jamie Vardy over the last few weeks. In the past two months, Leicester have beaten Brighton, Tottenham, Southampton, Chelsea and Fulham to nil – while Wolves have lost four times without scoring and really struggled for goals.
Leicester have lost just one of their 11 Premier League away games this season, and we’ll take them to leave with the spoils today. Harvey Barnes has the pace to cause problems on the break, and we’ll take the winger to score today, at 11/4.
Next is the big one, Liverpool versus Manchester City. The Reds have been very inconsistent over the last few weeks, and readily acknowledge that without a win today their title defence is probably over.
On the flip side, a draw will readily suit City, keeping their seven point lead over Liverpool intact. We think this will mean that City will make sure their defensive line stays secure, a stance which has troubled Liverpool in home games over the last month. We’re consequently going to leave Liverpool scorers alone, and side with City’s midfield general Ilkay Gundogan to net today, at 11/4.
The late game sees Sheffield United host Chelsea at Bramall Lane. Sheffield are trying desperately hard to recover from their dreadful start to the season. They have won three of their past five Premier League games, but they are still 11 points from safety.
However, they now play a Chelsea side that have earned seven points in three league fixtures under Thomas Tuchel, as many in their final eight matches under Frank Lampard. Additionally, they have kept clean sheets in their last three games, meaning this will be tricky for the Blades.
We think Chelsea will win this game, and we’ll take a punt of penalty taker Jorginho scoring for the Blues during the match, at 7/2.
Son (Spurs), Barnes (Leicester), Gundogan (Man City) and Jorgonho (Chelsea) to all score anytime as a Yankee (prices from Paddy Power)
