Manchester United and Leicester City to draw 5/2

Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur to draw 5/2

Newcastle to beat Crystal Palace 19/20

 

Manchester United v Leicester City

Having only lost three games all season and on a run of seven wins and two draws in their last nine games Leicester, after Tottenham dropped two points on Mnday night, go to Old Trafford needing three points for an incredible league win. They will have to travel without Jamie Vardy, whose ban was extended by a game this week. On the one hand the team showed against Swansea that the squad depth is stronger than many have thought but on the other in an away game where they are not gonig to have a lot of possession to miss Vardy and his pace, which gives such a counter-attacking threat, is a big loss

United also have something to play for, with Arsenal’s recvent dropping of points meaning the hosts have a shot, still, at a top four finish. In better form now, with Rooney in a deeper lying role and the pace of Rashford and Martial a threat, I would be surprised if they lost this game but to win it they are going to have to break down the Leicester defence which is a tough job with Kante protecting central areas and the central defensive partnership repelling crosses all season long

Prices for the game are United 11/10, Leicester 14/5 and the Draw 5/2. I like the look of the draw here

Chelsea v Tottenham Hotspur

Leicester play on Sunday ahead of this game on Monday night football and obviously the result in Manchester will have a bearing here. As it stands Tottenham need to win their last three games and hope Leicester slip up. They are likely to have to play here without Alli, facing a violent conduct charge but nevertheless Tottenham are clearly an excellent team with a huge future.

Much has been made of Chelsea’s motivations here, no love lost between the two sides and Chelsea have players desperate to find form ahead of Euro 2016. Tottenham are going to face a real battle here and are priced as 6/4 favourites, Chelsea 9/5 and the draw the outsider at 5/2. It is the draw with Skybet that appeals at those odds

Newcastle v Crystal Palace

Newcastle might be regretting not appointing Benitez a month soon as results have begun to pick up to give Newcastle a chance of escaping the drop. Based off solid defensive organisation first and foremost Newcastle have secured five points fgrom their last three games.

This really is a must win, given Newcastle have a game less to play than Sunderland and Norwich and it is probably helpful that Crystal Palace have reached the cup final. Safe on 39 points, the visitors thoughts are going to be on Wembley and Newcastle should capitalise.

Newcastle are best priced 19/20 for the game with Skybet, odds which should be supported.
