With a quiet Thursday ahead it gives us the chance to take an early look at some of the weekend fixtures and to claim a bit of early value.
In Scotland it's League Cup semi-final weekend with holders St Johnstone meeting Celtic at Hampden on Saturday evening, then on Sunday Rangers must adjust to life without Steven Gerrard and attempt to reach the final by getting past Hibernian.
The Glasgow giants are obvious favourites to progress and the double on them both to win inside 90 minutes pays just under 11/10 at Bet365.
Lower down the leagues John Hughes will be in the home dugout for the first time at East End Park and Dunfermline can make it two wins in a row against an out-of-form Ayr. Killie and Partick Thistle also look strong contenders for home wins.
In England two cracking matches bookend the day's action. Leicester City welcome Chelsea at lunchtime while Arsenal visit Liverpool in the early evening kick-off. The Chelsea & Liverpool double pays 6/4 at Bet365.
Steven Gerrard's first match in charge of Aston Villa is at home to Brighton and it's 7/4 that he kick-off his tenure with a win. Former Villa boss Dean Smith didn't take long to jump back on the managerial merry-go-round and he too will be looking to start his stint as Norwich City boss with a win over Southampton at 5/2.
High-flying West Ham face a tricky trip to Wolves who have hit a bit of form themselves. The Hammers are favourites at 11/8 to build on their brilliant run of form which saw them beat Liverpool 3-2 last time out.
In the Championship Fulham have been good to us this season but we'll need to dig deep for some value in their match against Barnsely where they're just 2/7 to win. It could be worth holding off until Sunday for Bournemouth‘s visit to Derby where the Cherries are 3/4 to win.
