Newcastle United have eighteen matches to save their Premier League skins, with Stan James offering 7/2 about them beating Manchester United on Tuesday night. The Red Devils are no bigger than 17/20 (Paddy Power) to claim three points, although Louis van Gaal’s team hardly look enticing at those odds.
The draw is a 5/2 chance (William Hill) and the reverse fixture ended in a goalless draw, although Steve McClaren will be confident he can get one over his former club, with a Newcastle win to nil available at 7/1 (BetVictor).
Aston Villa look doomed and Sky Bet are prepared to go 2/1 about the Midlands side beating Crystal Palace on Tuesday, with Remi Garde seemingly at a loss to arrest the Villans’ decline.
Alan Pardew saw his Eagles side thrashed 3-0 at home to Chelsea although the London side do tend to prosper away from Selhurst Park and bet365 make Palace the 6/4 favourites to continue that winning habit.
Bournemouth clash with West Ham in the other Premier League clash on Tuesday night, with the Cherries looking to put further daylight between themselves and the bottom three.
Slaven Bilic’s side beat Liverpool 2-0 and the return of Dimitri Payet could help West Ham enjoy the sort of performances and results that saw the London side beat Manchester City and Arsenal earlier in the campaign.
