If recent games between Chelsea and Leicester are anything to go by, then the match between the two most recent Premier League Champions should be worth watching, with the prospect of plenty of goals. As there’s also only 7-points between 12th placed Brighton and 19th placed West Brom, their match should also be a hard-fought battle. Meanwhile, there also looks to be a value-bet in the match between Crystal Palace and Burnley.
Chelsea vs Leicester (Saturday 3.00)
Leicester took 4 points off Chelsea when they won the Premier League in the 2015/16 season, but they’ve lost the other 11 of the last 13 matches between the sides. The last 6 renewals of this fixture have finished 3-0, 1-1, 2-0, 4-3, 2-1 and 2-0. Chelsea have also won their last 9 home games since a 1-0 defeat to runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City. Meanwhile Leicester, despite finding some form recently, have lost their last 2 Premier League away games, but have now scored in 9 of their last 10 games. Therefore, it could be worth backing Chelsea to win and both teams to score.

Crystal Palace vs Burnley (Saturday 3.00)
Crystal Palace have bounced back under Roy Hodgson after a disastrous start to the season, and their defence was good enough to keep the mighty Manchester City at bay as the two teams fought-out a 0-0 draw. They’ve also drawn 0-0 recently against West Brom and Brighton. Burnley also like to keep things tight, and they’ve also had two recent 0-0 draws against Huddersfield and Brighton. Brighton have actually enjoyed the upper-hand in winning the last 3 games between the sides but, with Crystal Palace tougher to beat now, and the fact this ended 0-0 two seasons ago – it could be worth chancing a 0-0 score-line.
Correct Score: 0-0 @ 7/1 WilliamHill or 13/2 Betway
West Brom vs Brighton (Saturday 3.00)
Two teams without much relevant previous history to go on and, though it was Brighton who won the reverse fixture 3-1 earlier in the season, both teams have been racking-up a high-percentage of draws since. West Brom have drawn 10 of their last 19 Premier League Games, including their last 2, and it’s notable that they’ve drawn at home 7-times this season. Meanwhile, Brighton have also drawn 7 of their last 15 Premier League games, including their last 2. Therefore, the draw may represent fair-value.
