Back in action after FA Cup fourth round weekend
Brighton v Watford
Two mid-table teams meet on the South Coast. Brighton in 13th are a solid side at home defensively and don’t give much away whilst Watford are in seventh. The two teams have combined for two wins in their last ten games. Watford have drawn 3 of their last five. The draw here is the outsider of the three options in the 1-2-X market at 12/5 with BetVictor which looks an appealing price.
Burnley v Southampton
Southampton have really picked up under Hassenhuttl with superb organisation and more width leading to the creation of ore chances. Two wins and a draw in their last three matches have seen them rise to 15th in the table and this has to be an opportunity to pull further away from the bottom three.
Burnley are a place below Southampton and defensively they have picked up since the reintroduction of Heaton in goal and three league wins in their last five games is the result. With both in improved form the 12/5 about the draw with BetVictor seems another reasonable option.
Leicester v Manchester United
Manchester United have won all their eight games under Solksjaer, with the players freed to enjoy their football and set up to both attack and counter-attack. Here Manchester United are rightly favourite to win against at 10/11 with BetVictor against a Leicester side in inconsistent form and where Puel is under pressure
