The big TV clash of the weekend is Liverpool vs Chelsea in the Saturday teatime match, whilst we’ve also got tips for Southampton vs Everton and Huddersfield vs Man City.
Liverpool vs Chelsea (Saturday 5.30, BT Sports)
Betting Guide: Liverpool 6/5, Draw 13/5, Chelsea 5/2
Chelsea currently sit 3 points and 2-places above Liverpool in the Premier League, and 5 victories in 6 away matches means they should be no pushovers for a Liverpool side who has won 4 and drawn 2 of their home matches this season. However, Chelsea have failed to win any of their last 6 Premier League matches against Liverpool, whilst the last 3 renewals of this fixture have a definite pattern with all 3 matches being 1-1 draws. Sure, the pattern will get broken at some point, but the draw again looks the value, with 1-1 available at bigger odds for those who fancy being a little more adventurous.

Southampton vs Everton (Sunday 1.30, Sky Sports)
Betting Guide: Southampton 10/11, Draw 5/2, Everton 4/1
14th and 16th positions in the Premier League aren’t positions you’d usually associate with Southampton and Everton, but both teams have been poor this season so far. The biggest problem both teams have had is in front of goal, and Southampton have failed to score in 4 of their home games. Meanwhile, Everton have failed to score in 3 of their away games. That statistic is also a good fit for previous matches between the two teams, with only team scoring in 6 of their last 8 matches, and in all of the last 4 renewals of this fixture.

Huddersfield vs Man City (Sunday 4.00, Sky Sports)
Betting Guide: Huddersfield 18/1, Draw 15/2, Man City 2/9
It’s amazing to think that you can get 18/1 about a team playing at home, especially one that has won 3, drawn 2 and lost one of their home games this season, and boasts a home win over Manchester United. Huddersfield also held City to a 0-0 draw at home in the FA Cup last season, before admittedly succumbing 5-1 in the replay. However, it’s easy to see why the bookies are trying to tempt punters in as City are looking dominant at the moment, having won all 6 of their away games this season, 4 of those to nil. Therefore, I’m sure there will be plenty of takers for City to win to nil again – and I’ll be one of them.
