No shock victory for Palace

245
Roy Hodgson

Liverpool can make it an unhappy Anfield return for Roy Hodgson by easing to a routine victory against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The 71-year-old struggled during his seven-month spell on Merseyside during the 2010/11 campaign and moved on to West Brom before taking charge of England in 2012.

Liverpool to win by two goals @ 11/4

Since becoming manager at Selhurst Park, Hodgson steered Palace away from relegation danger last term and they look set for another mid-table spot this season.

They lost 2-0 to Jurgen Klopp’s team on home soil in August but have shown they are capable of beating the leading sides as they won 3-2 at Manchester City last month.

Although they also clinched a creditable 2-0 victory at Wolves earlier in January, the Eagles look set to struggle to contain Liverpool.

Arsenal have been poor on their travels recently but remain formidable at home and, despite the puzzling recent omission of Mesut Ozil, they can hold Chelsea to a draw at 13/5.

Wolves to draw 1-1 with Leicester @ 5/1

Wolves and Leicester City have been frustratingly inconsistent this season, beating the top teams but losing to the struggling sides, and they look set to share two goals this weekend.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can guide Manchester United to a sixth Premier League victory in a row following Jose Mourinho’s departure last month, by beating Brighton 2-1 at 35/4, while West Ham can extend Bournemouth’s recent dire run to 10 defeats in 13 games by beating the Cherries with both teams to score at 16/5.

Newcastle United can leapfrog Cardiff City and move out of the relegation zone by beating the Bluebirds 1-0 at 11/2 while Everton can stall Southampton’s recent revival by drawing at St Mary’s at 47/20.

Finally Burnley have eased their drop fears by winning their last three league matches but Sean Dyche’s return to Vicarage Road may not be a successful one as Watford can beat the Clarets. The Hornets are 31/20 to score in both halves.
