Key storylines in Tuesday’s Premier League games
What to watch out for in all four matches
It’s always a treat when there’s a full Premier League schedule to enjoy in midweek.
This time is no exception, with four games taking place on Tuesday evening. The results will have an impact at both ends of the table.
Here’s the Coral News Team with a look at the big storyline going into each game…
Can Crystal Palace get a crucial win against their rivals?
Crystal Palace’s last-gasp win over Stoke City means they’ve avoided defeat in successive league games for the first time this season.
Roy Hodgson’s side are still bottom of the table. But they’re only three points away from safety now.
They’ve got a huge game against rivals Brighton & Hove Albion on Tuesday. As well as giving their fans bragging rights, a 9/4 Palace victory could help them climb out of the bottom three.
Will Tottenham get back on track?
For all the recent talk of a power shift in North London, Tottenham Hotspur are now one point and one place behind Arsenal in the table.
Spurs’ disappointing draw with West Bromwich Albion means they’ve only won one of their last four league games.
Mauricio Pochettino admitted the gap between Spurs and league-leaders Manchester City is “massive” on Saturday. His team needs a win against Leicester City at 3/4 to regain some momentum.
Is an upset on the cards at Vicarage Road?
Manchester United responded to their midweek defeat against Basel with a sluggish display against Brighton.
They were fortunate to win through an own goal. They may not get so lucky against eighth-placed Watford. Marco Silva’s side demonstrated why the Portuguese tactician is so highly-regarded in their 3-0 win over Newcastle United.
Watford are underdogs at 17/4. They did beat United at Vicarage Road last season though. Jose Mourinho’s team can’t afford to take the Hornets lightly.
Are West Brom going to win a game?
West Brom began the post-Tony Pulis era with an impressive 1-1 win away at Tottenham. But the club are still searching for a first win since August – a run that now stretches 12 games in all competitions.
Newcastle United could be ideal opposition. Rafa Benitez’s side have lost their last four league outings. They’ve also lost four of their last six away games in the top flight.
The West Brom fans could finally have something to cheer with a home win at 27/20.
