Previewing This Weekend’s Best Premier League Games – 14-15 April
Southampton battled admirably against Arsenal on April 8th but they inevitably came up short against the Gunners and the fixtures don’t get any easier as they welcome Chelsea to St. Mary’s. Despite that encouraging display, very few people are giving Mark Hughes’ side much hope against the Blues on April 14th.
Betfred make Antonio Conte’s side 5/6 favourites for this tie despite their patchy recent form. Chelsea are winless in two and weren’t able to beat West Ham during their last Premier League game but they should be able to show their class against the struggling Saints.
After securing their place in the final four of the Champions League, Liverpool will be desperately hoping there is no sign of a hangover when they take on Bournemouth at Anfield. The Reds are fancied to ease past the Cherries.
Jurgen Klopp’s side survived a first-half onslaught against Manchester City but held firm and they have been made 1/4 favourites here. They can be backed at 7/10 on the -1 handicap and Bet365 make Mo Salah 11/4 favourite to open the scoring here.
It’s been a forgettable week for Manchester City and Pep Guardiola but the Citizens are still on course to wrap up the Premier League title. They could bounce back at Wembley.
Spurs have been made the 29/20 favourites for this tie whilst the visitors can be backed at 7/4 to pick up an away win. Harry Kane is back in the side and Ladbrokes make him the 11/10 favourite to score anytime.
Newcastle Looking to Continue Their Good Form Against Arsenal
Rafa Benitez has done a superb job at St. James’ Park this season and he has guided Newcastle to mid-table safety despite a perceived lack of investment in the transfer window. The Magpies are well fancied to beat Arsenal, who could be weary from their trip to Russia in the Europa League.
The Toon are a tempting 5/2 to pick up all three points on Tyneside and continue their excellent run of form. The Gunners are priced at 21/20 but they’ve lost four consecutive away games in the Premier League.
Manchester United take on West Brom and it should be plain sailing for the Red Devils. The Baggies are not mathematically relegated yet but they look destined for the Championship and they are unlikely to give the hosts too many problems here.
