You’ve almost done it! After having to sit through a drab weekend of the FA Cup action, your patience will be rewarded early as the Premier League returns on Saturday.
With a couple of fascinating encounters in store we’ve had a look at all the markets for you and picked out a deadly double for our punters that could make Saturday even sweeter if it delivers at over 6/1. Let’s example ourselves…
You’d have never thought it at the start of the season, but it has to be said. Tony Pulis has turned West Brom into one of the Premier League’s toughest challenges to face.
Since the start of November only Chelsea, Man United and Arsenal have managed to beat the Baggies in the league, and they’ve won their last two on the spin. It takes a top team to beat them, unfortunately this weekend they face a top, top side in Spurs.
Tottenham have won their last five games and are undefeated at home all season. Mauricio Pochettino has turned White Hart Lane into a fortress that even Pulis’s blunt force will find hard to batter down.
We fancy Spurs to pull up the drawbridge on Saturday and, with 3 clean sheet victories in their last four home wins, we’re going to tip them to win to nil at .
This meeting of the last two teams to win the Premier League could well become a meeting of sides who have won the past three crown next season (if the Foxes stay up of course). As the way things are going, could you really back against Chelsea winning the title in May?
An amazing run of 13 games league victories in-a-row ended at Tottenham a couple of weeks ago, but The Blues are still five points clear at the top looking down on everyone else. Manager Antonio Conte has taken to English football like a duck to water and will be keen to put that Spurs blip to rest quickly.
Leicester on the other hand are in dire need of sorting themselves out. They’re still in danger of being the worst champions in history and only two victories in their last 11 does not help in that regard.
Our dig around the markets has us leaning towards Chelsea to win with both teams scoring at . Chelsea have conceded in their last three games and Leicester have found the net in seven of their last eight at the King Power Stadium, so that will do us nicely.
