Reds to squeeze past Burnley

337
Jurgen Klopp

There are three Premier League games on Sunday and it could be a significant day in both the title race and the battle for the top four.

Liverpool to win and both to score @ 17/10

It all starts at high noon when Liverpool welcome Burnley to Anfield looking to maintain their title hopes. Rivals Manchester City play on Saturday and should have too much for Watford meaning the pressure will be on the Merseysiders to respond.

The scheduling of this game looks unkind considering the Reds are set to play Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday and Jurgen Klopp could hand starts to some of his squad players in a bid to preserve his stars.

Klopp’s team need a win having drawn four of their last six but look to be facing Burnley at the perfect time with their resurgence seemingly having come to an abrupt end with defeats to Newcastle and Crystal Palace.

The Clarets have scored in their last four games against Liverpool and could cause some trouble. However, that is unlikely to be enough to get anything from Anfield and either 2-1 or 3-1 at 29/4 and 17/2 respectively could be the answer.

Chelsea to win and both to score @ 43/20

Sunday’s middle match comes from Stamford Bridge and Chelsea will feel they are well equipped to dispatch with an impressive Wolves side.

These two start the weekend sixth and seventh but the 13-point gap that separates them illustrates the difference between the best and the rest in the English top flight.

Wolves have been great when facing the big teams this season, beating Tottenham away, and they also won the reverse fixture against the Blues at Molineux.

Although Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have impressed, their hosts’ have built their Premier League campaign at home, winning their last three at Stamford Bridge.

They have not been perfect though and considering the likes of Cardiff, Crystal Palace and Newcastle have scored at Stamford Bridge, Wolves could get a goal and again the 6/1 for a 2-1 to the home team maybe worth consideration.

United to win @ 2/1

You may have heard but if not, an under-strength Manchester United did the unthinkable by beating Paris Saint-Germain 3-1 on Wednesday and despite their continued injury issues, will head to Arsenal full of hope.

One man who will return is Paul Pogba after being suspended for the game in Paris and he will look to engineer another performance akin to January’s 3-1 FA Cup win in north London. That was the third occasion in four meetings where there has been over 3.5 goals and a continuation of that run is 7/4.

That result has contributed to a record nine straight away wins for the Red Devils and the Gunners fielded a strong team as they went down 3-1 at Rennes on Thursday.

In their defence, Arsenal have been decent in N7, winning their last four since that drubbing by United but it is their defence that is a worry, conceding in their last three outings.

They have fallen behind Sunday’s visitors by a point in the fight for Champions League football and the edge Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are demonstrating should expose the home team’s lacklustre rearguard.
