Chelsea Premier League Betting Tips

bet on the premier leagueMark Rawlinson

It’s a bumper weekend of action in the Premier League, as we head for the home straight this season, with the race for the title reaching its climax.

Chelsea v Sunderland Betting Tips

Chelsea need another three points against bottom of the table Sunderland as they bid to keep up the heat on Liverpool, ahead of their key meeting next weekend.

After back-to-back losses, Jose Mourinho’s side have won their last three on the bounce but still trail Liverpool by two points. Their only absentee this weekend is Eden Hazard who misses out with a calf strain.

Sunderland pulled out an excellent 2-2 draw at Manchester City on Wednesday but still need a miracle to avoid the drop. Winless in nine in the league, Gus Poyet’s side are without the injured Steven Fletcher and Ki Sung-Yong whilst Phil Bardsley is suspended.

Although they were beaten in the League Cup quarter-finals in December, you have to go back to 2001 for the last time Chelsea were beaten by Sunderland in the league.

Chelsea are obviously 1/5 favourites with Bet 365 whilst Bet Victor offer the best odds on a Sunderland win at 17/1.

Catch this match live on Sky Sports 1 from 5:30pm on Saturday.

Norwich City v Liverpool Betting Tips

If Liverpool win their final four games, they will be crowned Premier League champions. Their next hurdle is against strugglers Norwich City who, as it stands, remain just outside the bottom three.

However, with a hellish run-in with fixtures against Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal, their chances look bleak.

Their home form hasn’t been too bad with just one loss in eight, including a draw against Manchester City and a draw with Tottenham, but they’ll have to be at their best to take anything out of this game.

Liverpool meanwhile are unbeaten in 15 in the league and are hot favourites ahead of this one. Jordan Henderson could be a key absentee in their run-in as he serves the first of his three-match ban, whilst Daniel Sturridge and Jose Enrique are both injured.

Liverpool have won the last nine meeting between the two sides, with Norwich’s last win in this fixture coming back in 1995. Liverpool are 2/5 favourites with Paddy Power whilst William Hill price a Norwich win at 8/1.

BET OF THE DAY: Over 3.5 goals at 23/20 with Sportingbet.

Catch this one live on Sky Sports 1 from 12pm on Sunday.

Everton v Manchester United Betting Tips

Everton’s hopes of taking the final Champions League spot took a massive hit in midweek as they were beaten at home to Crystal Palace.

The result meant Arsenal returned to fourth spot and are a point ahead of the Toffees and Roberto Martinez’s men must now win a tricky home game with Manchester United to stand any chance of finishing in the top four now.

James McCarthy is available for Everton after injury but skipper Phil Jagielka faces a late fitness test if he’s to be involved. Stephen Pienaar, Darron Gibson, Arouna Kone and Lacina Traore all remain sidelined.

United’s only hopes of European action next season remain on securing a Europa League spot. They will be the fresher having not had a match for 11 days, which was their 3-1 defeat to Bayern Munich.

Wayne Rooney and Marouane Fellaini are both set for returns following injury but Robin van Perise, Rafael and Jonny Evans all remain out.

Everton won their last encounter 1-0 at Old Trafford back in December and they head into this one as 3/2 favourites with Paddy Power. There are however good odds on a United win at 2/1 with William Hill.

This match is live on Sky Sports 1 from 4:10pm.
