It’s set to be a historical week for the Premier League with all ten midweek games to be streamed live on Amazon Prime for the very first time.
Six of those take place on Wednesday with Mourinho returning to Old Trafford and the small matter of a Merseyside Derby, buzzing. To celebrate and keeps things interesting we’ve put together a 143/1 acca.
Liverpool v Everton (KO 20:15)
Liverpool remain unbeaten in the league this season and they’ll be looking to maintain that record against rivals Everton.
The Toffees head to Anfield bereft of confidence and with many tipping Marco Silva to be the next Premier League manager to leave his position.
There were signs of improvement at Leicester but in the end the Foxes clinched a deserved three points making it just two league wins in ten for Everton. It would be fitting then for them to dent Liverpool’s title hopes by bagging all three points, but in all honesty I can’t see it happening.
Manchester Utd v Tottenham (KO 19:30)
Manchester United are currently eight points adrift of the top four and six points above the drop zone after back to back draws against newly promoted sides.
Ole is feeling the pressure, so the last thing he wants or needs is José Mourinho returning to Old Trafford with a rejuvenated Tottenham side.
Well that’s exactly what’s going to happen Wednesday. Spurs have won all three games so far under Jose and i expect the winning run to continue at Old Trafford.
Southampton v Norwich (KO 19:30)
After seeing off Watford at the weekend Southampton return to St Mary’s for another relegation six pointer this time against Norwich.
The Canaries sit just a point behind Saints after a win at Everton and then a draw against Arsenal more recently.
With very little between the two sides it’d be no surprise to see this end all square. Get on the Draw at 3/1.
Chelsea v Aston Villa (KO 19:30)
Chelsea will be looking to get back to winning ways when they entertain Aston Villa. A shock 1-0 defeat at home to West Ham on Saturday made it back to back Premier League defeats for Lampard. Villa meanwhile are unbeaten in two after a win against Newcastle and a point at Old Trafford on Sunday.
This is a game Chelsea could and probably should bag all three points. Chelsea win 1/3.
Leicester v Watford (KO 19:30)
Leicester’s relentless form continued against Everton on Sunday. The Foxes came from a goal down to secure their sixth league win on the bounce. Next up for Rodgers and co? Rock bottom and managerless Watford who look certain to be playing Championship football next season.
Wolves v West Ham (KO 19:30)
After a slow start to the season Wolves have hit some form heading into the festive period. Since losing to Chelsea in September, Nuno’s men have gone nine league games unbeaten and currently sit six points off the top four. Wednesday’s opponents West Ham will be no pushovers though.
The Hammers secured an unlikely three points at Stamford Bridge last time out, easing the pressure on under fire boss Pellegrini.
Wolves will probably have too much for the Hammers, especially on home soil – get on the 3/4 on the Wolves home win.
