Manchester City’s victory over Liverpool has kept the title race alive as we head into the second half of the season
Burnley v Fulham
Burnley’s mini-recovery has coincided with the re-introduction of Heaton in goal after a long injury absence, a flashback to the line up Burnley had when they were notoriously difficult to break down when they returned to the Premier League. Two successive wins has lifted them outside the bottom three and they will see this as an opportunity to continue their climb.
Fulham under Ranieiri have attempted to become more solid first and foremost and this has led to some low scoring draws, though they have only scored three goals in their last five league games.
My feeling here is a narrow home win is the most likely result, a Burnley win is available at 6/4 with BetVictor
Cardiff v Huddersfield
Huddersfield really are in trouble, bottom of the table with two wins all season and on a run of five successive defeats in the last month. Cardiff will be happy to be outside the bottom three at this stage, thanks to their late win at Leicester in between Christmas and the New Year they are 17th with 18 points.
Not a game where we can expect a lot of goals and a Cardiff win at 5/4 with BetVictor appeals
Tottenham v Manchester United
After four successive wins at the start of Solksjaer’s temporary reign United are back comfortably in the top six and this is seeen as their first major test for their newly found expansive style against a Tottenham side in the top three with sixteen wins in their 21 league games and winners of four of their last five
It’s easy to see goals here and the value to me looks to be 3/1 the draw with BetVictor
