Leicester City v Huddersfield Town
Leicester City’s initial run under Claude Puel has come to a halt with no win in five games in all competitions albeit a tough run of games including Man U and Liverpool. With Maguire suspended for this game and Simpson injured changes in the back four are enforced
Huddersfield continue to perform creditably with three league draws and a win in their last four league games, extremely well organised and with 24 points comfortably away from the bottom three
The Draw here is a whopping 3/1 with BetVictor, a price that has to be supported for draw specialists against slightly makeshift opponents
Brighton and Hove Albion v Bournemouth
Brighton continue to grind out a point here and there, as at Newcastle last Sturay without much in the way of goalscoring threat,somethingthey will have to addressin the January transfer window, and with 22 points are just outside the top half. Here they play a South Coast derby against a Bournemouth side that gained a crucial late win against Everton to climb the table to 14th at the time of writing.
The draw also looks likely here and a point might suit Bournemouth. 9/4 with BetVictor
Southampton v Crystal Palace
Writing ahead of the trip to Manchester United, Suthampton are on a very poor run of form with no win and only three points in their last six games. They have to be vulnerable home facoutires hereon Tuesday night.
Palace’s run of eight games unbeaten under Roy Hodgson was spoilt with a 3-2 loss at home to Arsenal but at least they showed the attacking threat that has been developing in recent months.
They are a dnagerous side on the counter-attack, Zaha especially, and against opponents with their main goal threat Charlie Austin suspended the 16/5 offered by BetVictor about the away win is the bet here
