Sunday’s Premier League Betting Tips: Wins for Chelsea and Liverpool?

Betting preview and odds for Super Sunday
A huge weekend of derbies at home and abroad concludes with Fulham v Chelsea and Everton v Liverpool on Sky Sports Main Event this afternoon.
Brendan Rodgers will also take charge of his first match as manager of Leicester City when they visit Watford in the day’s early kick-off.
The Coral traders have been busy pricing them all up, and we’ve been busy previewing them.
Watford v Leicester City (12pm, Sky Sports Main Event)
Leicester looked to have rediscovered their groove at home to Brighton & Hove Albion on Tuesday night. Brendan Rodgers’ presence in the dugout should only improve that even further.
The Northern Irishman has a glut of exciting attacking players to choose from. He should utilise them to much better effect than former Foxes boss Claude Puel.
That could start today, against a Hornets side who tend to lose their sting in the second-half of the season. Javi Gracia’s men picked up eight points from March onwards last season. They bagged nine points in the same period during the 2016-17 season.
The Foxes have won five of their last seven matches against Watford. They’re 19/10 to prevail today, with Jamie Vardy a 6/4 chance to get on the scoresheet. Leicester have kept clean sheets in each of their last four wins over the Hornets. The Coral traders go 21/5 about City to Win to Nil.
Fulham v Chelsea (2:05pm, Sky Sports Main Event)
A change of manager is unlikely to bring about a change of fortunes for Fulham. The Cottagers not only need wins at the bottom of the table, they need snookers too. Chelsea are unlikely to oblige.
Maurizio Sarri’s men appear much-improved of late. They’ll look to take full advantage of a Fulham side that have shipped 28 goals against the division’s top-six teams already this term.
Everton v Liverpool (4:15pm, Sky Sports Main Event)
Jermaine Beckford and Tony Hibbert came off the bench the last time Everton beat Liverpool. Their current respective form suggests a repeat victory for the Toffees is unlikely this afternoon.
The Reds have lost just once in the Premier League this term. They head into this off the back of a 5-0 win over Watford. Everton, on the other hand, have won just four times since November.
Jurgen Klopp’s men are 6/10 for all three points, with Mohamed Salah (23/20) and Sadio Mane (6/4) the obvious goalscorer picks. Yet it’s Divock Origi who has developed a knack of scoring against Everton.
