Battle for EPL second spot heats up as Arsenal host Man City

Fri, Mar 31, 3:26pm by Staff Writer

Three teams have a chance of taking second spot behind Chelsea on the Premier League table this weekend.

Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham are all separated by just three points ahead of tough matches this week.

Tottenham are 10 points behind Chelsea on 59 and will need to win their encounter at Burnley to retain their spot.

While Spurs are the far stronger team on paper, Burnley have an enviable home record, winning nine of their 14 matches at Turf Moor this season with just three losses.

William Hill is tipping Tottenham’s class to shine through, paying $1.70 for a win, $5 for a loss and $4 for a draw.

Third-placed Manchester City are just a point behind Spurs and will be desperate to claim a valuable three points when they travel to London to face Arsenal.

The Gunners have lost four of their past five Premier League games, including a 3-1 defeat at West Bromwich Albion last week, but are expected to put on a strong showing at home.

City, meanwhile, managed just a 1-1 draw with Liverpool last week, but are still the $2.35 favourites to take the win this week, with Arsenal on $2.90 and $3.60 for a draw.

Liverpool – in fourth place on 56 points –  have the most to play for, sitting a game behind their top-of-the-table rivals on 29 matches to 28 as they host Everton in a Merseyside derby.

Seventh-placed Everton are much improved since losing at home to Liverpool in the final seconds in December and have narrowed the gap on their cross-town rivals.

Nonetheless, Liverpool will be hard to beat at home and are paying $1.66 for a win and $5.50 for a loss with $3.80 for a draw.

Fifth-placed Manchester United will be desperate to keep in touch with the frontrunners when they host West Brom, and should come away with the points.

United have two games in hand on its rivals, after postponements due to Cup fixtures, and are on $1.36 to remain in striking distance with a win at Old Trafford. West Brom is paying $10 with $4.40 for a draw.

Chelsea’s incredible run should continue as they keep the Premiership firmly in their sights.

The London club the table with 69 points and is on target for a domestic double with its FA Cup hopes still alive.

Not in even a Palace side rejuvenated under Sam Allardyce are likely to pose a problem, with $1.28 on offer for a Chelsea win, $12 for a loss and $5 for a draw.

Hull are in for a tight encounter with West Ham, paying $2.50 for the home win against $2.85 for a loss and $3.40 for a win, while Leicester’s late return to form should be rewarded against Stoke at $2.05 for the victory, $3.75 for a loss and $3.50 for a draw.

In other matches, Watford are paying $1.83 to beat Sunderland, Southampton are on $1.61 to defeat Bournemouth and Swansea are the $2 favourite against Middlesbrough.

Suggested Bet: Take Leicester, Liverpool and Chelsea all to win at $4.51
