Odds and previews ahead of Premier League clashes

After a frantic Tuesday of football where Manchester City lost to Newcastle United and Manchester United dropped points against Burnley, there’s another clutch of games tonight.

The top-four race continues with Chelsea’s trip to Bournemouth and Tottenham hosting Watford at Wembley Stadium.

There’s also a relegation six-pointer between Southampton and Crystal Palace at St. Mary’s.

We have an in-depth look at the live game on BT Sport as Liverpool host Leicester City here. But stick around for all the odds and preview of the rest of Wednesday’s ties.

Bournemouth v Chelsea

After United dropped points last night, Chelsea can extend their lead over the Red Devils to five points.

The Blues are 6/10 to win away for the eighth time this league season.

Gonzalo Higuain is 6/5 to open his Chelsea account, with Eden Hazard also at 6/5 to bag anytime.

Bournemouth won at Stamford Bridge this time last year and are 17/4 to grab the victory. Former Chelsea youth Nathan Ake is 8/1 to hit the net.

Our traders have his team-mate Callum Wilson to grab 2 or more goals at 10/1.

Southampton v Crystal Palace

These two teams sit just outside the relegation zone on 22 points apiece. The Saints won the reverse fixture in September and are 27/20 to win here.

The home side haven’t lost in their last three league games and are 4/11 on the double chance.

But Palace will be buoyed by their FA Cup win and are 2/1 to move six points clear of the relegation zone.

Connor Wickham could get a second-successive start and is 7/1 to grab the opening goal.

Tottenham v Watford

Tottenham are 8/13 to bounce-back from consecutive defeats with a win tonight.

Fernando Llorente will likely start up-front yet again and is 5/4 to notch anytime. Spurs fans will be keen to see Son Heung-Min back in the squad.

The South Korean forward could come on in the second half and is 23/20 to hit the onion bag.

Watford are 21/5 to do the double over Spurs after their win the league back in September 2018.

Both teams to score is at 7/10 with Over 2.5 Goals at 4/6.
