Leicester v Chelsea

Chelsea beating Dortmund  should not have surprised anyone they have far too many good players to be too bad for too long. Whether Potter is the right man for the job remains in question – would Brighton have become as good under him as they have under his replacement De Zerbi? He has bought himself a little time. The question, though, is whether the players, fans and the board believe in him, the latter would rather avoid the embarrassment of sacking the man they brought in to replace the Champions League-winning Tuchel. League form need to desperately improve, immediately and with how poor Leicester have been at times this season also with Chelsea’s sheer strength and quality in the squad

Leicester are embroiled in a battle against relegation no doubt about it and are only 3 points off the bottom of the table team Bournemouth and have played the same amount of games. Rodgers (Leicester Manager) admitted this week they will need to do the dirty work in this game. “You need to have aggression and you may have to go against what you are,” he said. “You cannot let players do what they want to do against you”

3.77 for The Foxes and Potters men coming in at a lot lower at 1.99 nice option is a draw at 3.50


Fulham v Arsenal

Should Arsenal become champions, last weekend’s late win over Bournemouth will doubtless be seen as a key moment. What should not be ignored is how it came about. Mikel Arteta started Fábio Vieira in midfield and replaced Jorginho with Thomas Partey, who scored; at half-time, he removed Takehiro Tomiyasu to introduce the more enterprising Ben White, who also scored; and having sent on Emile Smith Rowe for the injured Leandro Trossard, he then subbed his sub with Reiss Nelson, who scored the winner. Or in other words, Arteta is now able to pick particular players for particular games that might suit them, and if things go wrong, the options on the bench to change them. As such and though Fulham are decent, chances are they will be playing against a well organised Arsenal squad

Fulham are punching way above where they were expected to be in the table with European football next season starting to become a dream into a reality. Sure Silva will be brushing off rumours of his consideration for the top job at Spurs and will be stubborn test for Arteta’s men

Arsenal are coming in favourites still at 1.60 with Fulham at a big price of 5.48


Crystal Palace v Manchester City

Crystal Palace have not won a game since the last day of last year, and pressure on Patrick Vieira is mounting. Twenty-one goals in 25 games is a dreadful return for a squad boasting some dangerous attackers and though the likelihood is that there are three worse sides in the division, there is no way that, this deep into the season, that Viera’s men should be so close to the relegation zone.

Pe7p’s visit to Selhurst Park will not help the situation. Manchester City have been unusually lax lately, failing to punish Arsenal for defeat at Everton – the following day they lost to Spurs – then after beating Arsenal, immediately surrendered two of the three points they gained by drawing at Forest. Though this might give Palace a glimmer of hope, another miserable weekend for the side looks likely – and with Brighton then Arsenal up next, things might not get any better for their league position

The Eagles are priced way out at 8.98 with Guardiola’s Cityzens coming in favourites at 1.35


Manchester United v Southampton

A 7-0 hiding to your arch rivals in Liverpool is one game anyone affiliated or supporter of United will want to forget. Erik ten Hag will tell his players that, beyond personal and team reputation and the mocking rights it gives all opposition fans, it was only three points. A glance at the table shows a relatively small gap to Jürgen Klopp’s side in fifth. This means Ten Hag can also lift his charges by pointing to how with 13 games left they hold a cushion in the chase for Champions League football and that with the League Cup claimed and United still in Europe after their relative demolition job against Real Betis and the FA Cup, the overall picture remains more positive for Bruno and the boys


Southampton still firmly embedded in the relegation zone need to continue their varied vein of form but a win albeit against Leicester City in their last Premier League match they also still hold a better win record than the 4 teams around them (2 wins in last 5 EPL matches) at the bottom of the table. Will Ward-Prowse want to play his way into the thoughts of more top team with rumours that Eddie Howe is a big fan of the Southampton captain. The trip to Old Trafford is the start of a very big week – and even if Southampton don’t win, they need to show a level of performance that doesn’t dent their confidence for the next two games.

Ten Hag’s men are priced for the win at 1.36 with the south coast men at 8.98
