Roy’s boys to add to survival chances

Roy Hodgson

The FA Cup semi-finals mean the Premier League action is fairly limited this weekend but there is still plenty of value to be had in the five games for us to feast on.

First up is the clash at The Hawthorns where having beating Manchester United last time out, West Brom will be hoping to do the same against Liverpool.

Jay Rodriguez netted the only goal at Old Trafford and having scored twice in January’s 3-2 FA Cup win at Anfield, is 27/10 in the Anytime Goalscorer market.

This is a game that gets tougher to call the more you look into it, with Liverpool likely to rotate with one eye on Tuesday’s Champions League semi-final first leg against Roma.

West Brom are 6/1 to win but the 8/5 on a home Double Chance may be the way forward.

In Saturday’s only 3pm kick-off, Crystal Palace can take another step towards survival at Watford.

The Hornets appear to be in the midst of their annual slump and head into this one without a win in five.

Palace battled to a 3-2 victory over Brighton last time out and Wilfried Zaha’s form alone virtually gives them a goal head-start against most sides.

Zaha can be backed at 11/4 as an Anytime Goalscorer and Palace could be the value bet of the weekend with them available at 6/4.

Onto Sunday and Arsenal’s form woes mean West Ham are another side worth backing on Double Chance at 7/5, while Manchester City’s focus on a record points total should help them win to zero against Swansea but with that outcome so short, 1/1 for over 3.5 goals looks reasonable.

The game that is likely to produce the most excitement on Sunday comes from the Potteries where Stoke welcome Burnley.

To be fair, excitement maybe stretching it but this is likely to be an intriguing encounter between two teams who need the points for differing reasons.

Stoke currently sit 19th in the standings and will be keen to bounce back from Monday’s draw at West Ham. Burnley have an eye on Europe and they too will want the points following Thursday’s loss to Chelsea.

The last four meetings between these sides have produced under 2.5 goals and another 1-1 draw for the Potters could be on the cards at 5/1.
