EPL Preview: Chelsea face Old Trafford challenge

Fri, Apr 14, 5:44pm by Staff Writer

Tottenham’s premiership hopes should come through unscathed this week when Spurs host Bournemouth and Chelsea face a tough encounter at Manchester United.

Tottenham, who trail Chelsea by seven points on 68 heading into round 32, trounced Watford 4-0 last week for their sixth league win in a row and seventh looks extremely likely this week.

Bournemouth have impressed as an attacking outfit, but have crumbled under sustained pressure, especially in the face of class sides.

The 15th-placed team lost 3-1 to Chelsea last week and are unlikely to fare better against Spurs.

Tottenham are also likely to be buoyed by the return of leading scorer Harry Kane from an ankle injury and are deserved of William Hill’s $1.25 favouritism. Bournemouth is on $11 for a win with $6 for a draw.

Chelsea meanwhile could see their lead narrowed to within two games with a loss at Manchester.

Jose Mourinho’s United are desperate for revenge after being bundled out of the FA Cup by the Londoners and a humiliating 4-0 loss at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season.

A fourth-place finish and a Champions League spot is also on the line for the once-mighty United.

With just seven matches to go, Alberto Conte’s Chelsea will be equally motivated to preserve their premiership lead.

United’s home-ground advantage makes it the slight favourite heading into the match at $2.50, with $2.85 for Chelsea and $3.20 for a draw.

Third-placed Liverpool also have a Champions League spot in their sights as they line up against West Bromwich Albion.

Liverpool last played in Europe’s elite club competition in 2014, but with five wins and two draws from their last eight matches, direct qualification this season is theirs to lose.

West Brom is paying $4.20 for a home win, with $1.80 for Liverpool and $3.75 for a draw.

Manchester City should hold on to fourth spot with a win at Southampton, especially with striker Sergio Aguero in ominous form scoring 10 goals in his last 10 matches.

City are paying $1.75 for a win, while mid-table Southampton are on $4.40 with $3.80 for a draw.

Arsenal’s 3-0 loss at Crystal Palace last week leaves them in a precarious position in sixth-place an us convinced we will never put them in a multi again. They are seven points outside the top four as they head to Middlesbrough.

The Gunners desperately need a win and are on $1.50 to take the points this weekend, with $6.50 for a loss and $4.20 for a draw.

Everton are level on 54 points with Arsenal, but have played an extra two games and can see their European hopes slipping away, despite a lopsided home match against Burnley in the offing.

Everton are on $1.44 for a win and $7.50 for a loss with $4.25 for a draw.

In other matches, Palace are on $1.80 to defeat Leicester at home, Stoke are paying $2 for a win over Hull, West Ham are at $2.25 to win at Sunderland and Watford are on $2.40 to sneak past Swansea.

Suggested Bet: Take a draw in Chelsea v Manchester Utd into a Stoke win over Hull at $6.40
