Leicester vs Manchester United

Over 3.5 Goals – 8/5 with Paddy Power

Manchester United have hit a run of solid results in the league and are suddenly being talked up as outside title challengers. That may be a bit premature the run of results needs to be taken seriously.

Solskjaer has got his side scoring a lot of goals in some very high-scoring games. A 6-2 win over Leeds was in no small part thanks to their opponents chaotic match approach but recent scorelines suggest the goals will keep coming.

Both sides should score in a game likely to see a few goals.


Aston Villa vs Crystal Palace

Jack Grealish Anytime Goalscorer – 2/1 with Paddy Power

The Aston Villa captain didn’t get on the scoresheet against West Brom last time out but was absolutely pivotal to his team’s success. Grealish set up two goals and created eight chances as he continues his fantastic form.

Crystal Palace will no doubt allow Villa space to attack and Grealish has the ability to punish them with a well-placed effort from the edge of the box or timely run between the defensive lines. He offers value at 2/1.


Fulham vs Southampton

Southampton to Win – 13/10 with Paddy Power

The Saints lost to Manchester City in their last outing thanks to a narrow 1-0 scoreline. Despite that, Southampton can be pleased with their performance and their season up until now. Ralph Hassenhuttl has transformed this side during his tenure and a top-half spot looks likely at the very least.

Fulham meanwhile have picked up in performance levels recently but are back in the relegation zone thanks to Burnley’s Monday night win. Southampton are the stronger side and have shown they are capable even without Danny Ings in the XI. As such, the odds are awfully kind at over evens for an away win.


Arsenal vs Chelsea

Chelsea to Win 10/11 with Paddy Power

‘Crisis’ is the word on everyone’s lips in North London right now. Arsenal are flirting with the relegation zone at Christmas and on current form, could drop points against just about anyone in the division.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have bounced back from consecutive defeats to rise to fifth, keeping another clean sheet in the process. There could not be a better time for Chelsea to play their London rivals and at just shy of evens this is surely overpriced.


Manchester City vs Newcastle

Raheem Sterling Anytime Scorer – 5/6 with Paddy Power

Sterling was the scorer of the only goal of the game as Manchester City defeated Southampton last time out. The English forward hasn’t been on top form in front of goal this season but two goals this month may have helped his confidence.

City are expected to brush aside an overly negative Newcastle side at the Etihad. The fact Newcastle are likely to sit deep boosts Sterling’s chances of finding the back of the net with a trademark well-timed run into the six-yard box for an easy tap in.


Sheffield United vs Everton

Everton to Win – 4/5 with Paddy Power

Sheffield United fans had their first win of the season snatched away from them at the death when Brighton equalised in their last league fixture. The result means the Blades are sat rock bottom of the table on two points with 14 games played.

Things are looking very bleak for Sheffield United and Everton’s recent purple patch is only likely to add to that. Fourth in the table heading into Christmas, the Toffees have put together an unbeaten streak of four league games with three wins on the bounce. At just under evens this looks like another value pick.
