Second place up for grabs in this week’s Premier League action

Fri, Mar 17, 5:52pm by Staff Writer

Competition at the top of the Premier League ladder hots up this week with Tottenham, Manchester City and Liverpool all vying to take sole possession of second spot.

With many teams making up for fixtures lost to mixed rounds due to Cup competitions in recent weeks, only league-leader Chelsea’s spot, 10 points ahead of the pack after 27 games, looks safe.

Tottenham and Manchester currently share second place on 46 points after 27 matches, with Liverpool a point behind after 28.

Liverpool travels to Manchester City with one eye on an all-important Champions League spot as it loos to shore up its place in the top-four.

William Hill, meanwhile, is tipping City to take the home win and narrow Chelsea’s lead heading into their final 11 games. Manchester is paying $2 for a win, $3.75 for a loss and $3.60 for a draw.

Tottenham will be looking to maintain its impressive unbeaten home record this season when it hosts Southampton.

Spurs will be in high spirits after comprehensively demolishing Millwall 6-0 in the FA Cup in their last match.

Despite injured star striker Harry Kane watching from the sidelines this week, Tottenham is paying $1.70 for the win, $5.50 for a loss and $3.75 for a draw.

Chelsea’s march it expected to continue unhindered when it travels to Stoke City.

Stoke is capable of an upset and impressed by beating Middlesbrough and drawing with Manchester City in its previous matches, but a victory over Chelsea may be too much to hope for.

Chelsea is paying $1.60 to take the points this week, with Stoke on $6 and $4 for a draw.

Arsenal is still a chance of recovering some form and making the top-four, and a win at West Bromwich Albion will help keep the Gunners in touch with the leaders.

London’s Arsenal has won just once in their past three visits to West Brom, while the Birmingham side is yet to beat a top-seven team this season.

West Brom is not expected to turn its record around this week, with $1.72 on offer for an Arsenal win, $5 for a loss and $3.80 for a draw.

Sixth-placed Manchester United remains in the hunt for a Champions League berth next season and should further its claim with a win at Middlesbrough.

While the bookies have United as favourite, manager Jose Mourinho has predicted a loss for his weary side.

William Hill still maintains the Manchester club has the legs to defeat Middlesbrough at $1.61 for a win, $6.50 for a loss and $3.75 for a draw.

Everton is probably the final challenger with a chance of threatening the top-four this season and will keep its mathematical hopes alive with a home win against Hull. The Liverpool side is on $1.50 for a win, $7 for a loss and $4.20 for a draw.

In other matches, Crystal Palace is paying $1.90 to hold out Watford, West Ham is on $2.30 to edge Leicester, Bournemouth is the $2.20 favourite to defeat Swansea and Sunderland should edge Burnley, paying $2.60 for a win and $2.85 for a loss.

Suggested Bet: Take Everton and Chelsea to win: $3.10
