Leagues Tipped:

THERE are four English Premier League games on Sunday with much of the focus on Spurs v Chelsea.

All last week up until Thursday I was planning to back Spurs to beat Chelsea but now I'm not sure.

I expected, and manager Mauricio Pochettini suggested as much, Spurs to field pretty much a reserve team against Qarabag in midweek. It was a 12-hour round trip to Azerbaijan for a Europa League tie yet he put out his star men including Harry Kane.

Was that wise just three days before a big league game? Only time will tell.

Chelsea sit 15th place after a dire season and can't lose much more ground on the top four before a Champions League place becomes unattainable. However, they've bounced back from three defeats with back-to-back wins and after a 4-0 win away to Maccabi Tel-Aviv need a point to reach the last 16 in Europe.

Bookies are finding it tough to split the sides with Spurs 8-5 at firms including bet365 and Ladbrokes and the Blues 19-10 with several bookies. Draw pays 5-2 at Betfred.

Spurs have only lost one of the last six meetings at White Hart Lane including a 5-3 win last season. So while I have my doubts about home men I don't think they'll lose so I'm on Spurs draw no bet at 4-5 with bet365 and Coral.

All six of those matches have seen both score so take that at 4-6 almost across the board.

Kane hit the only goal in Qarabag and that's nine in six games. He's a good shout to score at 13-8 with Paddy Power.

Elsewhere can we trust Liverpool at home at a short price and Arsenal away at equally low odds?

The double pays 6-4 at Paddy Power and I like it a lot with Jurgen Klopp making a huge difference at Anfield in a short space of time even though their best displays have come at Chelsea and Man City and not in front of the Kop.

Even so it's a good time to be facing Swansea whose only recent win came at home to Aston Villa. Phillipe Coutinho is performing superbly for Klopp and is 2-1 at bet365 to score.

Arsenal are a best 8-13 at Norwich and although some people won't back aways under evens this should come in. Norwich have tightened up a bit at the back but have won just one of their last 13 in the league.

The Gunners have lost just two of their last 13 on the road and after a super show against Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League should be full of confidence.

Norwich only conceded only once at Chelsea and two at Stamford Bridge and earned a first clean sheet against Swansea in their last home outing so defensively there is improvement but Arsenal have enough top quality players such as Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud to break them down.

West Ham v West Brom is best left alone. The Hammers have done their best work on the road and won just two out of six at home and against are missing their best player Dmitri Payet and we saw the effect his absence had when they crashed 4-1 at Spurs last week.

The Baggies beat Arsenal at home last week and will do their best to frustrate their hosts. It could be a draw but I'm not touching it.

    Swansea are actually three without a win after drawing at home to Bournemouth. Even in that game they trailed 0-2 early on and Garry Monk is under increasing pressure. Liverpool look a decent bet to me.
