The Premier League returns this weekend after FA Cup and Champions League matches have commenced since the previous gameweek.
Chelsea host Swansea City looking to at least maintain their lead at the of the league, whilst Liverpool have to wait until Monday night to see if they can close the gap on the leaders when they travel to Leicester City.
The EFL Cup final on Sunday between Manchester United and Southampton means four teams aren’t in action this weekend – Manchester City and Arsenal are the other sides.
Here are this week’s Premiership Tips:
Hull City vs Burnley
Hull City have seen a great early turnaround under Marco Silva which includes a 0-0 draw at Manchester United and beating Liverpool 2-0 at the KCOM Stadium.
Burnley have still only collected one point on their travels this season and will be without Jeff Hendrick, Steven Defour and Dean Marney in centre midfield for the trip to Hull on Saturday.
The hosts are putting real pressure on Leicester City in the relegation battle and three points this weekend would be another blow to the reigning champions who don’t play until Monday. It’s not often that the hosts versus Burnley will be odds-against this season so I think there’s real value in the hosts. Incidentally, Burnley have lost their last four away games all by the same score of 2-1.
Best bet: Hull City to win is 2.2 with Betfair
Leicester City vs Liverpool
Sadio Mane showed Liverpool what they were missing in January when the Senegalese forward netted both goals in the 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur.
Mane, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino are all available to Jurgen Klopp this weekend – the same trio that were scoring for fun earlier this season.
Leicester City have lost five straight in the Premier League and have still yet to score a single goal in the top flight in 2017. They were beaten 2-1 at Sevilla in the Champions League midweek whilst Liverpool have been resting for two weeks now.
Liverpool have the attacking talent to open up this leaky Leicester defence and pick up three points in their race to finish in the top four this season.
Best bet: Liverpool to win is 1.66 with Betfair
