The FA Cup semi-finals take centre stage this weekend but there’s some pretty important Premier League action jostling for top billing.
Chelsea for example, will open up what would probably be an unassailable ten-point lead if they get the better of Manchester United at Stamford Bridge.
Unbeaten on their own patch this term, the Blues are Stan James’s even-money jollies but the visitors have won six on the spin in the league and one or two shrewd punters might think they can nick a point (5/2, bet365).
They look well placed to do just that, especially as Jose Mourinho won’t consider a stalemate a bad result and BetVictor’s 4/1 about a score draw is particularly eye-catching in West London, where betway quote a 1-1 scoreline at 13/2.
Champions Manchester City have lost four of their last six league matches but are 2/7 (William Hill) to get back on track by overhauling West Ham, Stan James rate Tottenham at 13/10 to claim maximum points at beleaguered Newcastle and Everton (8/11, Stan James) should be too strong for relegation-threatened Burnley at Goodison Park. A treble on that trio comes in at 4/1 with BetVictor.
Elsewhere, Ladbrokes’s 5/4 chances Leicester are worth considering as they entertain Swansea, Stan James chalk Crystal Palace up at even money to defeat faltering West Brom and it’s 9/4 at betway to prove inconclusive as Stoke entertain Southampton.
Chelsea v Man Utd score draw – 4/1 (BetVictor)
Leicester and Crystal Palace double – 7/2 (Coral)
Man City, Tottenham and Everton treble – 4/1 (BetVictor)
Stoke v Southampton draw – 9/4 (betway)
