Premier League preview: Tuesday’s action including Chelsea vs Leicester

Premier League preview: Tuesday’s action including Chelsea vs Leicester

Man United vs Fulham

Man United have lost three of their last four matches in all comps. And while United have faced opposition significantly better than Fulham in those games, maybe the on-going absence of the injured Harry Maguire gives the Cottagers a chance at Old Trafford.

The west London team are already relegated, and haven’t won a game since they beat Liverpool at Anfield back in March. Oddly, Scott Parker’s side also beat Leicester at the King Power in November, so the side are capable of pulling off a result against the Prem’s better sides. Fulham to win at 8/1 then?!

If you can’t be having that, fair enough; certainly, the Cottagers don’t have a great record with Manchester United, who have won 18 of their last 22 encounters with Fulham.

Perhaps a more realistic bet would be Marcus Rashford to score; he found the net last time out and has scored in back-to-back games (across all comps) on six occasions already this season. Rashford is 8/5 to score at any time here.

Southampton vs Leeds United

After a season that’s followed the old “sublime to the ridiculous” template in masterful fashion, Southampton are at least finishing strongly; they’ve earned successive 3-1 victories over Crystal Palace and Fulham in the last week.

But Leeds are ending the season in style too, smashing four past Burnley at the weekend, having done for Tottenham before that. There should be potential for plenty of goals here then; another match with over 3.5 goals looks a real possibility, and is available at 5/4.

Brighton vs Man City

Brighton are looking for their first ever Premier League victory against Man City – could they get it against a side that have already wrapped up the Prem, and may not be at quite their most intense on Tuesday night?

City certainly dropped a few clangers away against Newcastle last time out – but still ended up winning 4-3 thanks to a Ferran Torres hat-trick.

Even with their foot off the gas, Pep’s side remain formidable, and City to have over 61.5% of the Total Ball possession at 4/5 sounds reasonable – they had 82% against Newcastle last time out, and 70% away against Crystal Palace earlier this month.

Chelsea vs Leicester City

It will be small consolation after the FA Cup final defeat, but it’s hard not to fancy Chelsea to take all three points in this game – even though a lot is still riding on this one for both sides.

If Chelsea win they overtake the Foxes in the table, moving up to third – and Liverpool could still edge Leicester out of the top four for a place in the Champions League next season.

Brendan Rodgers is unlikely to be complacent, but even so Chelsea have the talent to take the spoils here; a win for the west London side is available at 7/10, or you can back Chelsea to win and under 3.5 goals in a double at 6/5. With the Blues generally continuing to score two or fewer goals under Thomas Tuchel when they do win, that sounds like a reasonable punt.
