12.30pm: Chelsea v West Brom

It’s hard to see West Brom having any chance here given how much Chelsea have improved since Thomas Tuchel came into the job. They’ve only conceded two goals in their 10 Premier League matches under Tuchel so I like Chelsea to Win to Nil at a short price. It’s one to include in all your weekend accumulators.

At a bigger price I like Kai Havertz to Score First. He’s played as Chelsea’s central striker in the last two matches and has been unlucky not to find the net. If he starts again in the same position, at the price on offer, that’s decent value.

3pm: Leeds v Sheffield United

It’s hard to see beyond Leeds here but the Leeds price looks relitively short. Sheffield United did show some improvement in their cup semi-final defeat to Chelsea as well. The angle I’m looking at here is Patrick Bamford. People won’t be surprised to know how good Bamford’s statistics actually are.

Only Son-Heung Min, Harry Kane and Bruno Fernandes have more combined goals and assists than him this season and he’ll certainly push to get into the England squad. With him looking to have a point to prove I’m backing Bamford to Score Anytime here.
