Fifth and sixth meet in the Premier League today at Villa Park where a win for Aston Villa will take them back in to the Top 4.
Chasing them are Manchester United, who, if they are to sneak in to the Top 4 themselves, need to win this one. The Red Devils find themselves eight point behind today’s hosts.
Villa’s home form has been brilliant but they’ve lost their last two on their own turf so need to get back to winning way in front of their own fans.
United are aiming to win a fourth consecutive match for the first time this season and they appear to have found their mojo again in front of goal. They’ve hit 11 in their last four and Marcus Højlund has scored in each of those.
The last six meetings have finished 3-2, 1-0, 4-2, 3-1, 2-2 and 2-2 and we should goals today with Over 3.5 at 13/10.
Arsenal make the trip across London for a visit to West Ham in the earlier kick-off.
The Hammers have already beaten the Gunners twice this season so this one is far from a gimme for Mikel Arteta’s men.
Davie Moyes’ side are unbeaten in ten at home (W6 D4) and will fancy this today so don’t rule them out at 11/2 nor 6/4 on the Double Chance market.
Despite winning seven of their last eight and drawing the other there’s unrest at Celtic following a series of insipid performances. From hasn’t been great and St Mirren could smell blood in Paisley this afternoon.
Injuries haven’t helped Brendan Rodgers and again it’ll be a bit of a second-string back four that lines up for the Hoops.
Celtic won comfortably on their last visit to the SISMA Stadium but St Mirren had a few players out themselves at the start of the year. This time they’re going in to the game off the back of two good wins against Hibs and Dundee.
3/10 looks far too short for Celtic who edged past struggling Ross County, drew with Aberdeen last week and needed a last gasp penalty to win at Hibs in midweek.
Therefore the value is with St Mirren at 8/1 to dump the holders out of the Scottish Cup.
In the Premiership St Johnstone could make it a spectacular All Saints Double. Craig Levein’s men can overtake today’s opponents Dundee and move in to the top six with a win.
The former Scotland boss has made the Saints hard to beat and for a small stake the Double pays 33/1.
