Watford ($2) vs Norwich ($3.60) – Saturday 22nd January @7:00am AEDT

Norwich City will be looking for back to back wins when they travel to Vicarage Road on Saturday morning.

Manchester United ($1.90) vs West Ham United ($3.80) – Sunday 23rd January @2:00am AEDT

Manchester United take on West Ham in what could prove to be a pivotal match in the race for the top four.

United, who defeated Brentford midweek, albeit hardly convincing, are unbeaten in their last three and can leapfrog the Hammers with victory here.

Meanwhile, West Ham will be looking to give themselves breathing space from the likes of United, Tottenham and Arsenal, who are all closing in on the east London side.

David Moyes’s team will be looking to bounce back at Old Trafford following a disappointing loss at home to Leeds United last weekend.

 

Team News

Edison Cavani and Jadon Sancho could potentially be missing, as they were against Brentford.

David Moyes’s will be giving details of West Ham’s injury news at the pre-match press conference.

Over/Under:  Under 2.5 ($2.17)

 

Chelsea ($1.66) vs Tottenham Hotspur ($5) – Monday 24th January @3:30am AEDT

Chelsea will be looking to beat Tottenham three times in the space of a fortnight at Stamford Bridge on Monday morning.

The Blues defeated Spurs in both legs of their recent Carabao Cup tie, winning 2-0 and 1-0 respectively.

However, Chelsea’s league form has been far less impressive. Thomas Tuchel’s side are winless in their last four, with their most recent fixture ending in a 1-1 draw away at Brighton.

Tottenham remain unbeaten in the league since Antonio Conte became Spurs boss in November, though they are very much a work in progress.

They were thoroughly outclassed by their London rivals in the Carabao Cup semi-final, however they bounced back incredibly well, beating Leicester 3-2 with the last kick of the game, when they were 2-1 down only 90 seconds earlier.

 

Team News

Antonio Conte will be desperate for starting centre-halves Cristian Romero and Eric Dier to be available for selection following long-term injuries.

Chelsea have defensive problems of their own, with star full-backs Ben Chilwell and Rhys James still unavailable to play.

Match Result: Chelsea ($1.66)
