The big game in the Premier League this Sunday comes from Stamford Bridge, as Chelsea take on Manchester United.
The Blues haven’t beaten United in their last seven league meetings, but are hot favourites today. They lie top of the table, having lost only one league game all season, and now take on a manager-less team.
Reece James has been one of Chelsea’s stars this season, and is currently their top scorer with 4 goals in 7 starts with the team’s wing backs seemingly being given free license to roam. He’s a hefty 8/1 to score anytime today, which we think is too good to turn down against what has been a leaky United defense.
The early game sees Brentford host Everton, with both teams desperately looking for their next three points.
Both teams have lost four of their last five games, and while Everton are more highly regarded they could have as many as ten first-team players unavailable for their trip to the capital.
We’re really not sure how this match is going to turn out, but with notice with interest the reliance Everton have on Andros Townsend for attacking impetus this season.
The attacking midfielder has had 10 shots and 1 goal from outside the penalty area this season, and in a game potentially bereft of incisive play this willingness to shoot for distance could be important.
