This weekend we have a Super Sunday that might just live up to the hype!
We have managers at big clubs playing for their jobs, managers linked with moves away, teams flirting dangerously with relegation and Everton are playing as well.
Let’s have a look at the four matches and find a value accumulator.
Norwich vs Arsenal: Norwich +1 – 10/11
Norwich’s home form in the league isn’t exactly terrific, they’ve not won at Carrow Road since that famous victory over Manchester City in September – losing all three of their home matches since, conceding 10 goals and scoring just two. They’ve averaging 1.67 goals per match and conceding 2.67, that’s hardly survival form.
Their opponents on Sunday Arsenal, who have finally sacked Unai Emery, have gone five Premier League matches without a win now though, and their away form is very poor.
They’ve not won on the road since beating Newcastle 0-1 in August and on their travels they’re averaging 0.83 goals per match, while conceding 1.50.
Norwich have nothing to fear here and will be looking to heap more pain on Arsenal’s managerless side, so home advantage will play a huge role and the value is on Norwich’s side in the handicap market.
Wolves vs Sheffield United: Both Teams to Score (Yes) – Evens
While Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo might be linked with the Arsenal job, he can put some distance between his team and the chasing pack with a win here.
The Blades are just a point behind Wolves in sixth position in the league though. However, their away form is a bit dull, with one win and four draws in their last five.
Wolves’ scoring form at Molineux isn’t the best, averaging 1.50 goals per match and conceding 1.50 as well. But of late it’s improved somewhat and in their last three league matches at home, they’ve scored five and conceded just two.
Sheffield United are averaging 1.17 goals and conceding 0.83 and it’s that stingy defence they have to thank for their lofty Premier League position. No doubt they’ll play it safe against Wolves, but we all know Santo’s men love their late goals.
BTTS has landed in five out of five previous home league matches for Wolves and in three of five away league matches for United, get on it!
Leicester City vs Everton: Leicester to Win and Over 2.5 goals – 6/4
Leicester under Brendan Rodgers are a joy to watch again, strutting with a confidence they’ve not had since Caludio Ranieri steered them to the Premier League title a few seasons ago.
They’ve won their last six matches in a row in all competitions and it’s hard to argue against them beating an Everton side who are pretty bad away from Goodison Park.
The Foxes have scored 14 goals in their last five matches at home (conceding just three), while Everton have netted just five times in their last five away matches, they drew a blank in two of those matches though.
Over 2.5 goals has landed in four out of five previous home matches for the Foxes and in three times in away Everton matches over the same period.
Man United vs Aston Villa: Man United HT/FT – 6/5
We all know that Man United are having a ‘crisis’ season, but at home in the Premier League their record is still very good. Of their six matches at Old Trafford this season, they’ve lost just one.
It’s pretty much the opposite for Villa, who have won just once on the road this season in the league.
United have been winning at half-time in four of their five previous home league matches, so getting The Red Devils at 6/5 in the HF/FT market is too good to ignore.
