After Arsenal opened up a four-point gap at the top of the Premier League its all about the chasing pack today.
Ange Postecoglou will have 10 players missing for their trip to Manchester City as he attempts to avoid four straight defeats in the league for the first time since 2004.
That’s reflected in the 2/7 odds on the home win, City would’ve been nowhere near that price in this fixture a few weeks ago. It's hard to see anything other than a home but they're too short to back at those odds.
Liverpool have been ticking along quietly this season and should be comfortable against Fulham this afternoon at Anfield where they’ve lost just one of the last 48 matches in the league.
Fulham have a woeful record at Liverpool, scoring just four goals in 16 Premier League visits.
It’s just 1/4 on the Reds win. The 5/4 on a win to nil appeals with Alisson will be missing in goals which could cause some doubt in the backline so look to corners as a way to profit.
Fulham have the second lowest corner count on the road with 3.43 per match, while Liverpool boast the third highest at home, 8.33. In a game that Liverpool will dominate they should beat the -3.5 Asian Handicap at even money (2.00).
Aston Villa have been flawless at home but they’ve been a real mixed bag away from home. If they’ve aspirations of finishing in the top four they need to win games like this afternoon’s at Bournemouth.
The Cherries stunned Newcastle in their last home match but have lost to Spurs, Arsenal and Wolves at the Vitality and could be vulnerable today. Villa at even money looks the call.
In Scotland, Rangers failed to capitilise on Celtic’s slip up to Motherwell last week so the Hoops have the chance again to go 11 clear of the rivals if only for an hour or two.
A trip to St Johnstone usually yields three points for the Bhoys and they can win without conceding at 10/11 at McDiarmid Park.
St Mirren make the short trip to Ibrox in search of a win that could restart their season. The Buddies have lost four of their last and have dropped to fourth in the table.
Rangers boss Phillipe Clement is feeling some heat for the first time following a last-gasp draw at Aberdeen and a disappointing 1-1 draw at home to Cypriots, Aris Limassol on Thursday.
James Tavernier has scored six in his last five domestic matches since, five of those coming from the penalty spot – and he’s missed two spot kicks. He’s 6/4 to net today and is always worth a punt at that price.
