20:00 - Chelsea v Fulham
On Friday night, west London rivals Chelsea and Fulham meet at Stamford Bridge. The Blues are the current FIFA Club World Cup champions, while the Cottagers were plying their trade in the EFL Championship last season, but Fulham are two points above Chelsea in the standings and will be far happier with their work in the first half of the campaign. Still, Graham Potter’s boys are the odds-on favourites to win this one and, buoyed by their many new signings, we think they will get the job done.
Chelsea have been in poor form over the last few months, picking up just two Premier League victories since October. Fulham are enjoying a fine season back in the top tier, though Marco Silva’s men have lost the last two. We fancy Chelsea to get the points on home turf, and there is good value in 6/4 for the hosts to win -1.
20:00 - West Brom v Coventry
In-form West Bromwich Albion take on Coventry City at The Hawthorns in EFL Championship action on Friday night. The Baggies have been flying of late but have lost their last two in league and cup. As for the Sky Blues, they ended a six-game winless run with a much-needed 2-0 home victory over Huddersfield Town in the Championship last weekend. Who will come out on top in this all-West Midlands matchup?
West Brom were bottom not so long ago, but new boss Carlos Corberan has turned the club’s fortunes around. Despite losing at Burnley in their last Championship game, Albion are knocking on the door of the play-off places. Coventry will be buoyed after last weekend’s win, but our money is going on the hosts here. Take a punt on the West Brom win and both teams to score (11/4).
12:30 - Everton v Arsenal
Saturday’s early Premier League game will see struggling Everton host leaders Arsenal at Goodison Park. Sean Dyche will be desperate for a positive result in his first match in charge, but Mikel Arteta’s in-form Gunners are the favourites in Merseyside. Before Manchester City’s game on Sunday, an Arsenal win will take the Londoners eight points clear at the top, whilst defeat could well see the hosts drop to the foot of the table by the end of the weekend.
Everton are in a precarious position after 20 games, sitting joint bottom on just 15 points. The Toffees have struggled for wins all season, claiming just three. Moreover, amazingly they were the only top-flight side not to sign a single player in the transfer window, compounding that by letting their current top scorer leave! In contrast, Arsenal have won a staggering 16 of their 19 Premier League matches. Unfortunately for Dyche, we fancy the Gunners to secure another three points this weekend. Back Arsenal to win -1 at the solid odds of 11/10.
12:30 - Norwich v Burnley
We have an EFL Championship cracker to look forward to on Saturday afternoon, as Norwich City and Burnley do battle at Carrow Road. Both sides were relegated from the Premier League last term and both have a decent chance of going straight back up. Vincent Kompany’s Clarets are riding high at the summit and look nailed on for an instant return to the top tier. As for Norwich, they have improved under new boss David Wagner and will fancy a play-off charge.
After two excellent away wins at Preston North End and Coventry City, Norwich’s promotion push is back on track. Burnley have been the team to beat in the Championship this season, as Kompany’s boys are a whopping 17 points above third. This intriguing fixture could go either way, and our money is going on the draw at 23/10.
12:30 - Rotherham v Sheffield United
South Yorkshire sides Rotherham United and Sheffield United meet at the New York Stadium in the EFL Championship this weekend. This is a massive game for both, as Rotherham look to move further away from the bottom three, while Sheffield United aim to take another step towards the Premier League. The Blades are the bookies’ favourites in this one and despite being on the rod we fancy them to get the job done.
Rotherham have had a tough return to the second tier, winning just seven of their 29 matches. As for Sheffield United, they have picked up 17 wins and are chasing down leaders Burnley. More importantly, Paul Heckingbottom’s men are 12 points clear of third. We fancy the away team to seal a vital three points in this one. The away win and under 3.5 goals is nicely priced at odds of 5/4.
15:00 - Manchester United v Crystal Palace
Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United welcome Patrick Vieira’s Crystal Palace to Old Trafford in the Premier League this weekend. The Red Devils were held to a frustrating draw by the Eagles in the reverse match last month, but United are the red-hot favourites in this one. Will in-form Man United take the points on home turf and keep up the pressure on City?
United have won three league and cup fixtures on the bounce since losing a thriller to Arsenal. They have been in great form over the past few months, winning 12 of their last 14 in all competitions. In contrast, Palace have picked up just one win since early November. We are backing Man United to be winning at half time and full time in this one at the nice price of 11/10.
15:00 - Wolves v Liverpool
Jurgen Klopp takes his wounded Liverpool side to Molineux to play Julen Lopetegui’s Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League this weekend. The Reds picked up an FA Cup win at Wolves last month, and Klopp will be desperate for another victory at Molineux on Saturday. Despite their troubles, Liverpool head to the Midlands as favourites, though fans are deeply concerned about their midfield after a relatively quiet transfer window.
Lopetegui has made Wolves tough to play against since taking over, but Wanderers have lost two league and cup matches in a row to Liverpool and Manchester City. Liverpool, who were knocked out of the FA Cup last weekend, have won just four of their last nine Premier League fixtures. We are backing Wolves to hold Liverpool to a score draw this weekend (15/4).
17:30 - Newcastle v West Ham
On Saturday evening, Newcastle United and West Ham United go head-to-head at St James’ Park. These two teams are at opposite ends of the Premier League table, and the Magpies are the odds-on favourites to rack up another three points in what has been a hugely impressive campaign. However, the Hammers will be buoyed after their much-needed win over Everton in their last league match.
Newcastle are having a sensational season under Eddie Howe. They are in the EFL Cup final and look a decent bet to take one of the four UEFA Champions League spots in the Premier League. As for West Ham, they have struggled in the league this term, though they did manage to see off Everton in the last one. The Irons will have a go, but we fancy Newcastle to nick it. Take a punt on the hosts to win and both teams to score at the big odds of 3/1.
14:00 - Nottingham Forest v Leeds
Nottingham Forest and Leeds United meet in a big Premier League fixture at the City Ground this Sunday. With both teams desperate for points, this is likely to be a tight and tense tussle in the East Midlands. Forest are currently in 13th spot in the Premier League table, with Leeds three points behind in 15th with a game in hand. That make this sound like it isn’t an early six-pointer in the relegation battle but with just six points separating the hosts from the bottom of the table, in some respects it is.
That said, Nottingham Forest have picked up of late, winning two and drawing two of their last five league games. Leeds have gone six Premier League matches without a win since back-to-back victories over Liverpool and Bournemouth in October, though three of their last four have ended all square. We can see these two cancelling each other out at the City Ground so back the draw and both teams to score at 10/3.
16:30 - Tottenham v Manchester City
Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City lock horns in a heavyweight Premier League matchup at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday afternoon. This is rarely a dull affair, with 11 goals scored in the last two meetings between the teams. Spurs may be on home soil, but Man City head to the capital as the odds-on favourites to get all three points from this big fixture.
These two sides met in a thriller at the Etihad Stadium just last month, with City coming from two goals down at the break to claim a much-needed 4-2 home win. Tottenham have won two on the bounce since then, while Man City have also won both games in the league and cup. Spurs won this fixture last term, but we fancy City to get the points this Sunday. There is excellent value in 11/8 for the away win and over 2.5 goals.
20:00 - Blackburn v Wigan
On Monday night in the EFL Championship, Blackburn Rovers and Wigan Athletic go head-to-head at Ewood Park in a tasty-looking Lancashire derby. As Rovers push for the play-offs, while the Latics look for safety, Monday’s match in Blackburn is a huge one for the pair. Despite winning just one of their last five in the league, the home side are the favourites to get the three points.
Jon Dahl Tomasson has had a mixed bag of results since taking over at Ewood Park. Blackburn have spent most of the season in the top six but have already suffered 13 defeats. On the flip side, only Burnley and Sheffield United have won more games in the Championship. Wigan, who parted company with Kolo Toure recently, are rock bottom. All things considered, we’ll be backing Blackburn to win this one at odds of 19/20.
19:45 - Sheffield United v Wrexham
Sheffield United and Wrexham meet in an FA Cup fourth-round replay at Bramall Lane on Tuesday. These two played out a thriller in Wales in game one, with the Blades netting at the death to rescue a 3-3 draw. United are flying in the EFL Championship and are the strong favourites to get the job done on their own patch.
Wrexham gave Sheffield United a real scare at the Racecourse. The National League side were seconds away from causing an almighty cup upset, but John Egan levelled in injury time. Promotion is the aim for the clubs this season, but both will want to win this one. Sheffield United should make home advantage count and as such we’ll be plumping for the hosts to win and both teams to score at odds of 13/8.
19:45 - Burnley v Ipswich
EFL Championship leaders Burnley will be looking for another win when EFL League One outfit Ipswich Town visit Turf Moor in an FA Cup replay on Tuesday night. The Clarets are top of the Championship, while Ipswich are currently sitting in third place in League One. Burnley are the odds-on favourites to get the victory and progress to round five.
Vincent Kompany’s men are on their way to the Premier League after winning nine Championship games in a row. Last time out, they secured an impressive 3-0 win at Norwich City. Ipswich are going well in League One, but the Tractor Boys have won just one of their last six league games. Burnley should be too strong, and we like the look of the odds of 9/4 for the hosts to win with a -1 goal handicap.
19:45 - Sunderland v Fulham
Sunderland and Fulham clash in FA Cup action at the Stadium of Light on Wednesday night. The EFL Championship Black Cats battled hard at Craven Cottage to hold the Premier League Cottagers to a draw in the first match. Fulham, who are flying in the top tier, are the favourites to get the win in Sunderland.
The Mackems are having a solid first season back in the Championship, sitting just two points away from the play-off spots. As for Fulham, they are in eighth place in the Premier League after collecting 32 points from 22 games. These two drew 1-1 at Craven Cottage, and it could be close on the scoreline at the Stadium of Light. However, we fancy Fulham to edge it and we’ll be backing the away team to win by a one-goal margin at a price of 11/4.
20:00 - Manchester United v Leeds
Rivals Manchester United and Leeds United lock horns in Premier League action at Old Trafford on Wednesday night. The Red Devils are flying right now, and Erik ten Hag and his troops will be looking for another victory in midweek. United would go level with Manchester City if they muster the three points at Old Trafford.
Man United currently sit third in the table after winning 13 of their opening 21 games. Ten Hag’s boys are in excellent form and have picked up 13 victories from their last 15 matches across all competitions. As for Leeds, Jesse Marsch’s men have not won a game in the league since early November. United should be too strong for their rivals in this one, and there is good value in the odds of 5/2 for the hosts to win both halves.
20:00 - Birmingham v West Brom
On Friday night, West Midlands sides Birmingham City and West Bromwich Albion clash at St Andrew’s. The pair may be at opposite ends of the EFL Championship table, but this promises to be an entertaining encounter. The Baggies, who are flying under Carlos Corberan, are the bookies’ favourites to get the points but anything can happen when these sides clash.
After five consecutive league defeats, Birmingham secured a massive three points in their last match, edging a seven-goal thriller at Swansea City. West Brom have been in stunning form of late, winning 10 of their last 12 matches in the Championship. We are backing Corberan’s troops to edge this one, and you can get a price of 11/4 for Albion to win by a one-goal margin, which is the bet for us.
12:30 - West Ham v Chelsea
The Premier League weekend gets up and running with a tasty London derby between West Ham United and Chelsea. The Hammers have taken four points from their last two games in the league and will be looking for another positive result here. As for the Blues, they are searching for their first away league win since October and could really do with a big performance here.
West Ham still have work to do in their fight for survival, but the last couple of results and performances have been promising for the Irons. After a 2-0 win over fellow strugglers Everton, United drew 1-1 at high-flying Newcastle United last weekend. Chelsea head to the London Stadium having won just two of their last 12 matches in the league. The Blues’ last two Premier League matches have ended in goalless draws, and we are backing the draw here at odds of 9/4.
15:00 - Arsenal v Brentford
Premier League leaders Arsenal entertain in-form Brentford at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League at 3pm on Saturday. After suffering a rare league defeat last time out, the Gunners will be looking to get back on track with three points on their own patch. The Bees will not be an easy nut to crack, though, and the home side will need both invention and determination to get the job done.
Mikel Arteta’s men have been incredible in front of their home fans this season. They have won eight and drawn one of nine Premier League matches at the Emirates. Brentford are having a superb season in the top tier, and Thomas Frank’s troops have won five and drawn four of their last nine games in the league. The Bees will play their part, but Arsenal should have enough quality and ambition edge it. As such we’ll be plumping for the home win and both teams to score in this one at odds of 11/5.
15:00 - Leicester v Tottenham
Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur meet at the King Power Stadium in the Premier League this weekend. Antonio Conte’s Spurs have picked up of late and will be looking for all three points in Leicester this Saturday. The Foxes have had a tough season so far, but Brendan Rodgers’ troops have won two league and cup games on the spin and might be turning things around.
Both teams picked up impressive wins last weekend. Leicester battled hard to secure a much-needed 4-2 victory at Aston Villa. As for Tottenham, a record-breaking Harry Kane goal gave them a 1-0 triumph over champions Manchester City. Tottenham have won three in a row, and you can get odds of 11/10 for Conte’s side to get the three points at the King Power this weekend.
17:30 - Bournemouth v Newcastle
In-form Newcastle United make the trip to the Vitality Stadium to face struggling Bournemouth in Premier League action this Saturday evening. After dropping points against West Ham United in the last one, the Magpies will be looking for maximum points in Dorset. The Cherries are in the bottom three, while United are in the top four at present.
Bournemouth have had a tough time on their Premier League return, winning just four games so far. In contrast, Newcastle have been excellent and have collected 40 points from their 21 matches. Eddie Howe’s men are unbeaten in 16 Premier League fixtures, and we are backing Newcastle to get the win at the Vitality. As such, we’ll be having a punt on the generous odds of 11/8 for the away team to win to nil.
14:00 - Leeds v Manchester United
Leeds United and Manchester United meet again in the Premier League this weekend. After playing out a four-goal thriller at Old Trafford earlier in the week, and we’re expecting more fireworks at Elland Road this weekend. Man United dropped points in the home meeting, but Erik ten Hag’s troops are the bookies’ favourites to win on the road.
Leeds were two up in Manchester on Wednesday and looked like they might get the victory. However, second-half goals from Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho gave the Red Devils a share of the spoils. Ten Hag’s side have been in superb form in the Premier League for months, and we are backing Man United to get the win at Elland Road. There is good value in the odds of 5/2 for the away win and both teams to score in this one.
16:30 - Manchester City v Aston Villa
Sunday’s late game in the Premier League will see Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City take on Unai Emery’s Aston Villa at the Etihad Stadium. City must put the off-field issues to one side and get back to winning ways after last weekend’s disappointing reverse at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Man City are the clear favourites with the bookies.
Leaders Arsenal were let off the hook after their loss at Everton last Saturday. Man City had the chance to close the gap at the top to just two points, but Pep’s boys were beaten by Spurs. Villa also lost last time out, as they were beaten 4-2 at home by Leicester City. Man City should return to winning ways here, and we like the look of the price of 4/5 for the hosts to be winning at half time and full time.
20:00 - Liverpool v Everton
Merseyside rivals Liverpool and Everton square off at Anfield in the Monday night game. With the Reds in mid-table and the Toffees in a relegation battle, both teams are desperate for maximum points. After shocking Premier League leaders Arsenal in his first game in charge last week, can Sean Dyche guide Everton to victory at Anfield?
The pressure is seriously on Jurgen Klopp at the moment after Liverpool crashed to another heavy defeat last time out. The Reds have taken just one point from their last four league games and have conceded nine goals along the way. Everton will still be buzzing from Dyche’s first win, and we fancy the Toffees might muster enough to edge past their rivals on Monday. The away win is available at the top odds of 11/2 which looks a value bet to us based on the contrasting levels of confidence.
20:00 - AC Milan v Tottenham
Antonio Conte takes his Tottenham Hotspur troops to the San Siro on Tuesday to face AC Milan in a huge UEFA Champions League match. After a heavy 4-1 defeat to Leicester City in the Premier League last time out, Spurs will be desperate for a positive result in the first leg of this Round of 16 tie.
Milan ended a run of four straight league and cup losses with a much-needed Serie A win last time out. Olivier Giroud got the only goal in a 1-0 home victory over Torino. Tottenham were starting to put a run together, but the 4-1 loss at the King Power Stadium was a real setback for Conte and his men. Still, we fancy the Londoners to bounce back with a European draw in midweek.
20:00 - PSG v Bayern Munich
Heavyweights Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich lock horns in a mouth-watering UEFA Champions League tie on Valentine’s Day with the first leg of this Round of 16 tie taking place at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday. Despite being on home soil, Paris are the second favourites. Who will come out on top in this huge match in the French capital?
PSG go into this Champions League fixture having lost back-to-back league and cup games to Marseille and Monaco. However, they are unbeaten at home across all competitions this season. Bayern have been their usual formidable selves of late, undefeated since a 1-0 league loss at Augsburg back in September. All things considered, we’ll be backing Munich to do the business and win by one goal in Paris at odds of 7/2.
20:00 - Burnley v Watford
Runaway leaders Burnley take on Watford in midweek EFL Championship action at Turf Moor. Vincent Kompany’s Clarets have been unstoppable of late and look nailed on for an instant return to the Premier League. As for Slaven Bilic’s Hornets, they have blown hot and cold of late but are capable of causing an upset. This promises to be an entertaining Championship clash in Lancashire.
Since a 5-2 loss at Sheffield United before the 2022 FIFA World Cup break, Burnley have won 10 Championship games in a row to open up an unassailable lead at the top. Watford will have a go at Turf Moor, but Burnley should come out on top again. There is good value in the odds of 7/4 for the hosts to win with a -1 goal handicap.
20:00 - Reading v Rotherham
In the EFL Championship on Tuesday, Reading and Rotherham United square off at the Select Car Leasing Stadium. The Royals currently sit 18th in the table on 38 points, with the Millers five points behind in 20th. Both are looking over their shoulder at the bottom three, so this is a massive matchup for the pair.
Reading started well under Paul Ince but have gone off the boil in recent months, winning just two league games since returning from the 2022 FIFA World Cup break. Rotherham have had a tough first season back in the Championship, winning only seven of their 30 league matches. This is tough to call, so back the draw and both teams to score at the solid odds of 15/4.
19:30 - Arsenal v Manchester City
Premier League title rivals Arsenal and Manchester City meet in a mouth-watering match at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night. A home win would take the Gunners six points clear of City with a game in hand, but a Man City victory would put the pair level on points at the summit. Which way will this gigantic game go in the capital?
Arsenal have failed to win in two games, collecting just one point from a possible six, which is being viewed as something of a blip. After a 1-0 loss at Tottenham Hotspur, Man City got back to winning ways with a 3-1 home success over Aston Villa at the weekend. The winners of this could well go on to win the title, but we fancy the duo to play out an entertaining draw at the Emirates. You can get the nice price of 10/1 for the draw and over 2.5 goals which could be worth a punt.
20:00 - Borussia Dortmund v Chelsea
Graham Potter takes his Chelsea troops to Germany this week to face Borussia Dortmund in the Round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League. The Blues will be looking for a positive result at Signal Iduna Park, but Edin Terzic’s in-form side will be a tough nut to crack on their own parch. A draw would be a good outcome for Chelsea but even that might be a tall order.
Since returning from the 2022 FIFA World Cup break, Dortmund have won every single one of their matches. They are flying in the Bundesliga, closing the gap on leaders Bayern Munich to just three points. In contrast, Chelsea have won just two of their last 12 league and cup matches. We fancy Dortmund to nick it on home soil, and you can get the price of 10/3 for the hosts to win by a one-goal margin, which looks good to us.
20:00 - Club Brugge v Benfica
Club Brugge and Benfica lock horns in Wednesday’s other UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie. Both teams will fancy their chances at the Jan Breydel Stadium, though the Portuguese outfit are the favourites with the bookies to get the win. This is likely to be a tight and tense two-legged Champions League tie and it’s certainly a tricky one to call.
Club Brugge currently find themselves in fourth spot in the Belgian First Division A standings, 20 points behind runaway leaders Genk. Benfica lead the way in Portugal’s top league, collecting an impressive 53 points from 20 games. Rui Costa’s Eagles should just about get the win in Belgium in midweek though it could be close. We’re backing the visitors to prevail and both teams to score in Bruges at odds of 11/4.
20:00 - Sheffield United v Middlesbrough
Premier League chasers Sheffield United and Middlesbrough clash in EFL Championship action at Bramall Lane on Wednesday night. The Blades sit second in the second tier as things stand, having collected 61 points from their 30 games. Boro are in third position but are 10 points behind United. This is a huge match for both teams in the promotion picture and it could feasibly go either way.
Sheffield United look a good bet to take second place behind runaway leaders Burnley. Paul Heckingbottom’s men have been incredibly consistent all season, winning 18 of 30 of their league matches. Boro are flying under Michael Carrick, but we can see United chalking up another three points here. As such, we’ll be backing the home win and both teams to score at a price of 7/2.
20:00 - West Brom v Blackburn
Carlos Corberan’s West Bromwich Albion and Jon Dahl Tomasson’s Blackburn Rovers do battle at The Hawthorns in the EFL Championship on Wednesday night. West Brom are two points away from the top six in ninth place, with Rovers a point and a position above. Both sides will be desperate for all three points in the West Midlands.
West Brom have lost three of their last four league and cup games after a string of excellent results under their new boss. After no draws from their opening 27 Championship games, Blackburn have now drawn three on the spin. Rovers would take another draw here, but we are backing West Brom to nick the points on their own patch – the home win by one is available at odds of 13/5.
17:45 - Barcelona v Manchester United
Barcelona and Manchester United meet in the standout UEFA Europa League tie of the round. Though this might be a huge clash for the Europa League, in many ways it is a sign of just how far these giants have fallen in recent years. The first leg of this two-legged knockout play-off will take place at fortress Camp Nou on Thursday night. This will no doubt be a tough task for Erik ten Hag’s troops, but can the Red Devils leave Catalonia and return to Manchester with a positive result in the bag? A win would be special but even a draw would do very nicely.
Barca are enjoying a fine season domestically, as they are flying at the top of La Liga right now. Only Bayern Munich have won on their patch this term. Man United are third in the Premier League and have been in fine form under Ten Hag. This could be close, and we fancy United to grab a draw in Spain. Take a punt on the draw and both teams to score at big odds of 4/1.
20:00 - Juventus v Nantes
In the UEFA Europa League on Thursday, Juventus and Nantes go head-to-head at the Juventus Stadium in Turin. Juve are looking to put their off-field issues to one side and have a go at the Europa League after dropping out of the UEFA Champions League. The Old Lady are the strong favourites in this two-legged European knockout tie.
Massimiliano Allegri’s men have got their heads down and picked up three successive league and cup victories since losing at home to Monza in Serie A. As for Nantes, they have won two on the bounce in Ligue 1. The French side could be tricky opponents over two legs, but Juve should make home advantage count on Thursday. Back the hosts to prevail by one goal at 5/2.
20:00 - Cardiff v Reading
Sabri Lamouchi’s Cardiff City and Paul Ince’s Reading do battle in EFL Championship action at the Cardiff City Stadium on Friday night in what could prove to be a relegation six-pointer. After ending their long winless run in midweek, can the Bluebirds secure back-to-back wins for the first since October? The home team are the favourites to get the points but they have hardly been a model of consistency this term.
Reading have been even worse though and they are still in the relegation picture, as the Royals have picked up just one win in seven. However, that victory did come on Tuesday night against fellow strugglers Rotherham United. Both teams are desperate for three points, but we can see the pair cancelling each other out in Wales. As such, our betting tip here is to back the draw and under 2.5 goals at the top price of 3/1.
12:30 - Aston Villa v Arsenal
The Premier League weekend gets up and running with a tasty fixture between Aston Villa and Arsenal at Villa Park. After no wins in three league games, the Gunners will be desperate for all three points in the West Midlands on Saturday. Arsenal lost top spot to Manchester City in midweek, falling to a 3-1 home loss to the champions and if they don’t get the win here, it could spell trouble for their title ambitions.
Unai Emery will be hoping to pile more misery on his former club. Villa could do with a win themselves after back-to-back Premier League losses to Leicester City and Man City. Arsenal are without a triumph in four league and cup fixtures, but we are backing the Londoners to claim a vital victory at Villa Park. You can get a price of 11/4 for the away team to win by one goal, which looks like the bet for us.
12:30 - Millwall v Sheffield United
Premier League chasers Millwall and Sheffield United square off in EFL Championship action at The Den on Saturday afternoon. The Lions sit in seventh place in the table at present, while the Blades are in second place on 61 points. Both sides are looking to bounce back from midweek defeats, and this intriguing fixture in the capital could go either way.
Gary Rowett is doing a fine job with this Millwall team, and the Lions are well and truly in the play-off picture right now. Sheffield United lost at home to Middlesbrough on Wednesday, which saw Boro close the gap to just seven points. Both will be desperate to bounce back with a win, but we fancy the draw and both teams to score at The Den at a price of 15/4.
15:00 - Chelsea v Southampton
On Saturday afternoon, Chelsea and Southampton meet at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League. The Blues are in pretty bad form at the moment, while the Saints sit rock bottom at the foot of the table, so this is a massive match for both sides. Despite winning just two of their last 13 Premier League fixtures, Chelsea are the clear favourites to pick up all three points on home turf.
Graham Potter is having a tough time of things at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea were beaten again in midweek, losing 1-0 in the UEFA Champions League to Borussia Dortmund. Southampton are looking for a new manager again after the sacking of Nathan Jones, and Chelsea should heap more sorrow on the struggling Saints on Saturday. It might not be a complete rout, but we’re backing the Blues to win with a -1 goal handicap at odds of 21/20.
15:00 - Nottingham Forest v Man City
Steve Cooper’s Nottingham Forest welcome Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City to the City Ground in the Premier League this weekend. The Reds are fighting for survival, while City are pushing to retain their title. After taking top spot from Arsenal in midweek, Guardiola’s superstars will be looking for another big three points at the weekend.
Man City beat the Gunners in a huge title battle at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday. Goals from Kevin De Bruyne, Jack Grealish and Erling Haaland gave the Citizens a deserved 3-1 success. Forest have been in good form of late, but the leaders should leave with all three points. There is good value in the odds of 7/4 for the away team to win both halves at the City Ground.
17:30 - Newcastle v Liverpool
On Saturday evening in the Premier League, Newcastle United and Liverpool clash at St James’ Park. Jurgen Klopp’s Reds are the only side in the Premier League to have beaten Eddie Howe’s Magpies this season, and United will be out for revenge on home soil. The bookies are having a tough time splitting these two in the betting.
Newcastle are having an exceptional season under Howe as they push for a place in next season’s UEFA Champions League. They are also through to the EFL Cup final. In contrast, Liverpool are having a campaign to forget, by their high standards, having collected just 32 points from 21 games. However, they did beat rivals Everton last time out which is always a morale booster. Newcastle have drawn five of their last six in the league, and we like the look of the draw and both teams to score at odds of 10/3 in this one.
14:00 - Manchester United v Leicester
On Sunday, in-form Manchester United welcome Leicester City to Old Trafford in the Premier League. After the midweek result between Arsenal and Manchester City, the Red Devils are just five points behind the joint leaders. The Foxes have improved of late, but United will be looking for all three points on home soil.
Erik ten Hag is having a fine first season at Old Trafford. The Dutchman has recovered from a bad start to turn Man United into real title contenders. Leicester head to Manchester having won two games in a row, scoring four goals in each of them. However, our money is going on a routine home win here. You can get the solid odds of 6/4 for the hosts to win with a -1 goal handicap.
16:30 - Tottenham v West Ham
London rivals Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United lock horns in a Premier League match at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday. Spurs are looking to strike back after a bad week, while the Hammers hope to continue their revival with a positive result at the home of their rivals. This promises to be an entertaining London derby.
Tottenham have lost two games on the spin since the win over Manchester City. After a big 4-1 loss at Leicester City, Spurs were beaten at AC Milan in the UEFA Champions League in midweek. West Ham are unbeaten in four league and cup games, having won two and drawn two. The Irons will fancy their chances of snatching a point in north London, and we like the look of the draw and under 2.5 goals here at odds of 15/4.
20:00 - Watford v West Brom
Watford and West Bromwich Albion square off at Vicarage Road in the EFL Championship on Monday night. With both teams pushing for a play-off place, this will be an intriguing encounter in Hertfordshire. The Hornets are winless in five in the Championship, while Albion have won just one of their last five league and cup games. Both clubs may be low on confidence and we predict a tight, hard-fought clash, with little to choose between the pair.
Watford will be desperate for a win after collecting just four points from the last 15 on offer. Slaven Bilic’s boys have not won since beating Blackpool at home in mid-January. Carlos Corberan has done an excellent job at The Hawthorns, but the Baggies have stuttered a little and have suffered three losses in their last five matches in all competitions. We fancy the pair to play out a score draw (15/4).
19:45 - Millwall v Burnley
Two form sides in the EFL Championship clash in midweek as Gary Rowett’s Millwall welcome Vincent Kompany’s Burnley to The Den. The Lions are currently sitting pretty in sixth place in the table with 49 points to their name. As for the Clarets, they are 11 points clear at the summit and look nailed on for an instant return to the Premier League.
Millwall have been tough to beat at The Den this season, with just Reading and Queens Park Rangers leaving their patch with all three points. They are unbeaten at home since the QPR defeat in mid-September. Burnley are undefeated in 12 league games, dropping just two points along the way. Overall we can’t see past a Burnley victory and we’ll be backing the away win and both teams to score in this one at the solid odds of 9/2.
20:00 - Liverpool v Real Madrid
European giants Liverpool and Real Madrid square off at Anfield in UEFA Champions League action this Tuesday night. These two met in the final last year, with the Spanish heavyweights edging past the Reds in Paris. Can Jurgen Klopp’s men get revenge and take a lead to next month’s second leg in Spain’s capital?
Liverpool have had a pretty forgettable season on the whole, but the Merseysiders have shown an improvement of late. In their last two games in the Premier League, the Reds have beaten both Everton and Newcastle United by two goals to nil. This will no doubt be a tough two-legged tie against the European champions, but Liverpool will fancy their chances in the home leg. As such, we’re confident enough to back the hosts to prevail at odds of 5/4.
20:00 - Eintracht Frankfurt v Napoli
Eintracht Frankfurt and Napoli lock horns in UEFA Champions League action in Germany on Tuesday night. The Italian side are flying in Serie A right now and have impressed in Europe this term. Will Luciano Spalletti’s in-form Blues leave Frankfurt with a positive result in this Round of 16 Champions League tie?
Eintracht, last term’s UEFA Europa League winners, find themselves in sixth spot in the Bundesliga at present. As for Napoli, they are miles clear at the top of Serie A after a stunning season so far. Partenopei have won 20 of their 23 league matches. We fancy the in-form Italians to get past Frankfurt at Deutsche Bank Park on Tuesday. You can get the top price of 3/1 for Napoli to win with a -1 goal handicap, which looks good to us.
20:00 - RB Leipzig v Manchester City
Pep Guardiola takes his Manchester City troops to Germany to play RB Leipzig in the UEFA Champions League in midweek. The Premier League champions are the favourites in this two-legged Round of 16 tie. Man City will be looking to leave Germany on Wednesday with a win.
Leipzig are doing okay in the Bundesliga, sitting just four points away from leaders Bayern Munich. After losing a big match against Union Berlin, the Red Bulls bounced back last weekend with a 3-0 win at Wolfsburg. Man City dropped points against Nottingham Forest in the Premier League last time out, but they should strike back with a Champions League victory in midweek. We’ll be backing City to be winning at half time and full time in this one at odds of 7/4.
20:00 - Inter Milan v Porto
The other Round of 16 UEFA Champions League fixture taking place on Wednesday is the intriguing clash in Italy between Inter Milan and Porto. The Portuguese outfit are more than capable of causing an upset at the San Siro, but the Serie A giants will be looking to make home advantage count on Wednesday night.
Inter have been excellent in the San Siro in recent months, suffering just one home defeat across all competitions since early October. Porto are flying right now, unbeaten in 13 league and cup matches (11 wins, two draws). The away side will play their part, but Inter should come out on top on home turf. We like the look of the home win and over 2.5 goals at a nice price of 15/8.
17:45 - Nantes v Juventus
Nantes and Juventus go head-to-head in UEFA Europa League action at the Stade de la Beaujoire this Thursday. The French Ligue 1 outfit did superbly well to hold the Old Lady to a draw in Turin in leg one so will fancy their chances here for sure. However, Juve remain the favourites to win on the night and book their place in the Round of 16 of this season’s Europa League.
Juventus were pretty dominant in terms of match facts in the first leg, and Dusan Vlahovic’s 13th minute goal gave them the perfect start. However, Nantes hung in there and rescued a draw at the Juventus Stadium, with Ludovic Blas scoring on the hour mark. Juve will have to be at their best in France, but Massimiliano Allegri’s side should get the job done. Back the away win and both teams to score (10/3).
17:45 - Monaco v Bayer Leverkusen
Monaco and Bayer Leverkusen square off in a UEFA Europa League knockout play-off at the Stade Louis II this Thursday. The first leg was a five-goal thriller, with the Ligue 1 outfit edging it on German soil in what was a bit of an upset. Can Philippe Clement’s troops get the job done in front of their home supporters on Thursday night?
Monaco are in red-hot form right now, winning five league and cup matches in a row. The first leg at BayArena was a superb match, with Monaco running out 3-2 winners. With a lot at stake in this second game, we could be in for another entertaining matchup. Take a punt on the home side to win and over 3.5 goals at the top price of 9/2.
20:00 - Manchester United v Barcelona
Manchester United and Barcelona meet in the second leg of their UEFA Europa League tie on Thursday. The two European heavyweights played out a thriller at the Camp Nou last week, leaving this second leg at Old Trafford delicately poised, though the hosts are favourites to progress. Can Erik ten Hag’s Red Devils make home advantage count and book their place in the last 16 as they continue their four-pronged bid for glory this term?
Man United battled hard to leave Catalonia with a 2-2 draw last Thursday. They fell behind but went 2-1 ahead thanks to a Marcus Rashford effort and an own goal. However, former Leeds United man Raphinha rescued a draw for Barca late on. We are expecting another brilliant battle between the giants, but we fancy Man United, who were the better side in the first game, to edge it. Take a punt on the hosts to win by exactly one goal here at the very nice price of 3/1.
20:00 - Fulham v Wolves
Fulham and Wolverhampton Wanderers go head-to-head in Premier League action at Craven Cottage on Friday night. The Cottagers are enjoying a fine first season back in the top tier after winning the EFL Championship last term. Victory for Marco Silva’s men will put them level on points with Newcastle United and whilst a Champions League place is probably beyond them, they will hope to qualify for the Europa League. As for Wolves, they are three points above the drop zone in 15th place and in desperate need of a result.
Fulham have taken many people by surprise this season, winning 11 of their 24 matches. Silva’s side will be eyeing up a European place at the end of the campaign. In contrast, Wolves are in a relegation scrap, although their results have improved under new boss Julen Lopetegui. We fancy Fulham to rack up another three points here though. Take a punt on the home win and both teams to score at 15/4.
12:30 - Coventry v Sunderland
Coventry City and Sunderland square off at the Coventry Building Society Arena in Saturday’s first fixture in the EFL Championship. The Sky Blues sit 11th at present, five points adrift of the play-off places. As for the Black Cats, they are just a point away from sixth in eighth. This is a huge matchup for both teams.
Mark Robins’ men are in good form, winning three of their last five in the Championship. After back-to-back wins over Millwall and Rotherham United, the Sky Blues have put themselves in the play-off picture. Before the midweek loss at the New York Stadium, Sunderland had taken seven points from three games. We fancy the evenly matched sides to play out a score draw at the Coventry Building Society Arena (7/2).
15:00 - Leicester v Arsenal
Premier League leaders Arsenal make the trip north to the King Power Stadium this weekend to face Leicester City. The Foxes are in patchy form, winning three in a row before last weekend’s heavy defeat at Old Trafford where, unusually for them, they failed to score. As for the Gunners, they secured a vital victory at Aston Villa in their last matchup but they too have been a little patchy of late, by their high standards at any rate.
Leicester recently picked up back-to-back league victories, winning 4-2 at Villa Park and thumping Tottenham Hotspur 4-1 at the King Power. However, they crashed to a 3-0 loss at Old Trafford last weekend. After no wins in four in all competitions, Arsenal hit back with a crucial three points against Aston Villa last time out. We fancy Mikel Arteta’s men to win again this Saturday. You can get 9/4 for the away victory and both teams to score and given Leicester’s long-term BTTS record that seems a very decent price to us.
15:00 - Everton v Aston Villa
Everton and Aston Villa do battle at Goodison Park in the Premier League this Saturday. Sean Dyche has taken six points from a possible nine as Toffees boss, and another victory here would be massive in their survival quest. The Villans are having a solid season, but Unai Emery’s troops have suffered three defeats in a row. Should the Toffees get the win here they would move to within to within four points of their opponents but who will come out on top in Merseyside this weekend?
Dyche has certainly lifted the spirits at Goodison. Everton have won back-to-back home games, beating both Arsenal and Leeds United by a goal to nil. They don’t create all that much but look very tight at the back and full of energy in the middle of the park. In contrast, Villa have suffered a trio of losses to Leicester City, Manchester City and Arsenal. We are backing Everton to secure another crucial three points here. You can get the home win at the solid odds of 6/4.
17:30 - Bournemouth v Manchester City
Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City travel to the Vitality Stadium to play Gary O’Neil’s Bournemouth in the Premier League this Saturday. After dropping two big points at Nottingham Forest last weekend, the champions will be desperate for all three points from this one. As you would expect, City are the strong favourites at the Vitality.
Bournemouth have had a tough time of late, but last weekend’s much-needed 1-0 win at fellow relegation strugglers Wolverhampton Wanderers has lifted the doom and gloom. Man City drew 1-1 at the City Ground after their recent win at the Emirates Stadium, gifting top spot back to Arsenal. City will be eager to return to winning ways, and they should be too strong for the Cherries. We like the look of 13/8 for Man City to win both halves.
19:45 - Crystal Palace v Liverpool
Patrick Vieira’s Crystal Palace and Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool go head-to-head in Premier League action at Selhurst Park on Saturday night. After a humiliating UEFA Champions League loss to Real Madrid in midweek, Klopp will be demanding the right response from his players. Can the Reds make it three league wins on the trot to force themselves back into the battle for a top-four finish?
Palace have spent the majority of the campaign around mid-table, and the Eagles are in 12th place at present after six wins, eight draws and nine defeats. However, they have not won in 2023, drawing four and losing four of eight league and cup games. Liverpool have improved in the league of late, sealing back-to-back 2-0 wins over Everton and Newcastle United. Put some money on the Reds to win to nil again at 2/1.
13:30 - Tottenham v Chelsea
London rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea meet at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday. Spurs are hoping to cement their place in the top four, while the Blues are looking for their first away victory in the Premier League since winning 2-0 at Villa Park way back in mid-October. Both teams are desperate for three points but we fancy the struggles of the Blues and their 678 (ok, we exaggerate) new signings will struggle.
After losing 4-1 at Leicester City in the league and 1-0 to AC Milan in the UEFA Champions League, Spurs secured a vital victory last time out, beating rivals West Ham United 2-0 at home in the Premier League. Chelsea are in miserable form, winning just one of 10 in all competitions. The pressure is growing on Graham Potter, and we fancy Tottenham to nick this one (31/20).
15:00 - Rangers v Celtic
Old Firm rivals Rangers and Celtic lock horns in the 2023 Scottish League Cup final at Hampden Park this Sunday. It will be the 16th time that these two rivals have met in the League Cup final. The Bhoys are the current cup holders after beating Hibernian in last term’s final. As for the Gers, they have not won this competition for over 10 years.
Celtic lead the way in the Scottish Premiership right now, nine points clear of Rangers after 26 games played. The pair have met twice already this term. Back in September 2022, the Celts thumped the Teddy Bears 4-0 at Celtic Park. However, Rangers picked up a 2-2 draw in the Ibrox meeting at the start of 2023. The in-form Hoops are the favourites, and we are backing Ange Postecoglou’s boys to win a thrilling final. You can get 2/1 for the Celtic victory and over 2.5 goals.
16:30 - Manchester United v Newcastle
Manchester United and Newcastle United do battle at Wembley Stadium in the 2023 Carabao Cup final this Sunday. Man United will move into third place in the all-time EFL Cup winners’ list if they get the better of the Magpies. As for Newcastle, victory on Sunday will be their first EFL Cup success. This promises to be a thrilling final, as both clubs seek to deliver some overdue silverware to their fans.
These two met in Premier League action back in October, with Eddie Howe’s men holding Erik ten Hag’s troops to a frustrating, from the Dutchman’s point of view, draw. The Magpies, who are having an excellent season, will no doubt be tough opponents for the Red Devils, but we can see Man United edging a tight and tense final at Wembley. There is great value in big odds of 3/1 for Man United to win by exactly one goal, with 2-1 a decent shout at bigger odds.
20:00 - Swansea v Rotherham
Swansea City and Rotherham United meet in the EFL Championship on Monday at the Swansea.com Stadium. The Swans have struggled for consistency of late but will fancy their chances of seeing off the lowly Millers on home soil. Swansea currently sit 12th in the Championship table, while Rotherham are 20th.
The Welsh side still have hopes of reaching the play-offs, with the places between 16th and fifth covered by just nine points. Ahead of this weekend’s matches, City are eight points adrift of sixth place and know a decent run would see them climb into the top six quickly enough. Russell Martin’s men desperately need to put a winning run together. Rotherham are in a relegation scrap, but Matt Taylor’s side are five points above 22nd. We fancy Swansea to edge this one on home soil, and you can get solid odds of 13/5 for the hosts to win by one.
19:15 - Stoke v Brighton
At the bet365 Stadium on Tuesday night, Stoke City and Brighton & Hove Albion clash in FA Cup action. The Potters have struggled in the EFL Championship this season, but can they see off Premier League opposition in the cup in midweek? Brighton, who are eighth in the top tier, are the bookies’ favourites in this fifth-round tie.
Stoke are currently languishing in 17th place in the Championship, though they have moved nine points clear of the bottom three after recent wins over Huddersfield Town and Swansea City. Brighton are having a great season in the Premier League. However, Roberto De Zerbi’s men were beaten at home by Fulham in their last match. This could go either way, and we are backing the draw in the 90 minutes at odds of 10/3.
19:30 - Leicester v Blackburn
Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City take on Jon Dahl Tomasson’s Blackburn Rovers in the FA Cup this week. The Foxes are the favourites to get the win at the King Power Stadium and progress. Leicester currently sit in 14th position in the Premier League table, while Rovers are riding high in fourth place in the EFL Championship. This promises to be an intriguing cup tie and it could feasibly go either way.
Blackburn’s ultimate aim will be to gain promotion to the Premier League. They are an unpredictable outfit, and Tomasson’s team could give Rodgers’ troops problems at the King Power in midweek. However, Leicester should make home advantage count and seal their passage through to the quarter-finals. We’ll be taking a punt on the home victory and both teams to score at the solid price of 11/5.
19:45 - Fulham v Leeds
Two Premier League teams clash in the fifth round of the FA Cup in midweek, as Marco Silva’s Fulham welcome Javi Gracia’s Leeds United to Craven Cottage. The Cottagers have had a sensational season in the Premier League, while United are in a relegation scrap. Both teams will be desperate to book their spot in the last eight of the FA Cup.
When these two met in the Premier League back in October, Fulham ran out 3-2 winners in a thriller at Elland Road. Silva’s side have done exceptionally well in the top flight after winning the EFL Championship last term, and we fancy the Londoners to see off fellow Premier League side Leeds in the cup in midweek. There is great value in the odds of 3/1 for the hosts to win with a -1 goal handicap.
19:45 - Preston v Coventry
Preston North End and Coventry City clash in midweek EFL Championship action at Deepdale. North End ended their winless run with a comeback victory over struggling Wigan Athletic on Saturday. As for the Sky Blues, they head to Lancashire having won three Championship games on the spin. Can Mark Robins’ men make it 12 points from a possible 12?
Preston are in 12th spot, eight points away from the play-offs. Coventry’s fine form has taken them into 11th, three points above the Lilywhites. These two are close in the table, and Tuesday’s game at Deepdale is likely to be a tight one. However, we fancy Coventry to just about edge it. Take a punt on the Sky Blues to win by one goal at odds of 10/3.
20:00 - Bristol City v Manchester City
Manchester City are in FA Cup action on Tuesday, as Pep Guardiola takes his superstars to Ashton Gate to play EFL Championship side Bristol City. The Robins are unbeaten in all competitions in 2023, but Man City head to Bristol as the overwhelming favourites to get the win. Will the Premier League champions be too strong for the second-tier team?
Bristol City are unbeaten since a 2-0 home league defeat to West Bromwich Albion on Boxing Day. As for Man City, they have lost just one of their last nine. The Citizens have seen off Chelsea and Arsenal in the cup and should ease past the Championship side on Tuesday. You can get the decent odds of 6/5 for Man City to win both halves at Ashton Gate, which looks a solid bet to us.
20:00 - Luton v Millwall
Rob Edwards’ Luton Town and Gary Rowett’s Millwall meet in a huge EFL Championship match at Kenilworth Road on Tuesday night. Both teams have Premier League aspirations, and this Championship clash could go either way. The home side are the favourites with the bookies to get the points.
Edwards is doing a fine job with Luton after taking over from the popular Nathan Jones. After a narrow home loss to leaders Burnley, the Hatters bounced back with a big three points over Birmingham City last time out. The Lions are also going great guns, and Rowett’s side won 1-0 at Stoke City in their last outing. We are struggling to pick a winner, so our money is going on the draw and both teams to score in this one at a price of 15/4.
19:15 - Southampton v Grimsby
Southampton entertain Grimsby Town in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Wednesday. The Saints, who are bottom of the Premier League, will be looking for a routine win over the EFL League Two side. The confidence is low at St Mary’s, but Ruben Selles’ side should be too strong for the fourth-tier team even if the magic of the cup sometimes throws up some big surprises.
Selles recently guided Southampton to a stunning 1-0 victory over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, but the Saints were brought back down to earth with a bump last weekend, as they lost 1-0 to relegation rivals Leeds United. A win in the FA Cup could be the perfect tonic, though, and they should be too hot to handle for Grimsby. We’ll be backing the hosts to be winning at half time and full time at odds of 10/11.
19:30 - Burnley v Fleetwood
EFL Championship high flyers Burnley will be looking for a routine FA Cup win when they welcome EFL League One side Fleetwood Town to Turf Moor on Wednesday night. Vincent Kompany’s troops are going great guns in the second tier, 12 points clear at the summit. Fleetwood have won five and drawn one of their last six matches but are the huge underdogs in Lancashire.
Burnley are well on their way to an instant return to the Premier League after racking up an incredible 76 points from 34 games. In the FA Cup, Kompany’s Clarets have seen off Bournemouth and Ipswich Town. They should make light work of Fleetwood on Wednesday, and there is good value in the price of 10/11 for the home side to be winning at half time and full time.
19:45 - Arsenal v Everton
Arsenal and Everton go head-to-head at the Emirates Stadium in Premier League action this Wednesday night. With Manchester City playing in the FA Cup, a Gunners victory would lift Mikel Arteta’s men five points above Pep Guardiola’s side. The Toffees won the reverse game, but Arsenal are the big favourites to get the job done in this one.
Arsenal are two points above Man City at the top of the Premier League table as things stand. Since a bad run of form, Arteta’s troops have bounced back with two vital victories over Aston Villa and Leicester City. Sean Dyche has won two and lost two as Everton boss so far, with one of those victories coming against Arsenal. The Gunners should get revenge, and we fancy the London side to win this one with a -1 goal handicap at a price of evens.
19:45 - Manchester United v West Ham
Manchester United and West Ham United square off in an all-Premier League FA Cup battle at Old Trafford in midweek. Just days after their EFL Cup final victory over Newcastle United, Erik ten Hag and his boys will be looking for another win in the cup. As you would expect, the Red Devils are the bookies’ favourites on home soil.
Ten Hag is having an exceptional first season at Old Trafford. United have won the EFL Cup and are through to the Round of 16 of the UEFA Europa League. They are also in the top four of the Premier League at present. The Hammers could be tricky opponents for the Red Devils, but Man United will fancy their chances on their own patch. As such we’ll be taking a punt on Man United to win with a -1 goal handicap at odds of 7/4.
19:55 - Sheffield United v Tottenham
EFL Championship side Sheffield United take on Premier League giants Tottenham Hotspur in an intriguing FA Cup fixture at Bramall Lane this Wednesday night. The Blades are flying in the Championship as they hunt down a Premier League return, while Spurs are in the UEFA Champions League places in the top tier.
Promotion is the main aim for Sheffield United, but the Blades are looking to go far in the cup. In the last round, United edged past plucky non-league side Wrexham. Tottenham would love to win the FA Cup this year, but they are in the hunt for the top four and are also still in the Champions League. We can see Antonio Conte’s side edging it at Bramall Lane and we’ll be backing Tottenham to win by one goal at a price of 11/4.
20:00 - Liverpool v Wolves
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool welcome Julen Lopetegui’s Wolverhampton Wanderers to Anfield in the Premier League on Wednesday night. The Reds have taken seven points from a possible nine in the league since losing to Wolves a month back. Will Liverpool get revenge on their own patch in midweek?
Klopp’s boys are having a season to forget, but their form has improved of late. They drew 0-0 at Crystal Palace last weekend but picked up Premier League wins over Everton and Newcastle United in their previous two. Wolves have been going okay under Lopetegui, and we fancy Wanderers to hold the Reds to a draw at Anfield. You can get the solid betting price of 5/1 for the draw and both teams to score which looks like a decent option to us.
