MIDWEEK PREMIER LEAGUE FIXTURES: BETTING TIPS
ASTON VILLA VS LIVERPOOL
PREMIER LEAGUE FORM: W – W – D – L – L VS D – W – W – W – D
Aston Villa piled on the misery at Burnley, winning 3-1 thanks to the front trio all getting on the scoresheet. For Liverpool, it was a challenging game at home against Tottenham, in no small part due to Conte’s side implementing defensive strategies and playing out from the back and creating spaces to attack.
The previous fixture between the two sides ended in a narrow Liverpool win, with Mo Salah scoring a penalty on the day. Gerrard’s side haven’t enjoyed the best of seasons, as they find themselves in 11th place, closer to the bottom three than the top six. Liverpool, on the other hand, have yet again gone on an incredible run of games. However, it’s not all good news at Anfield, although they’ve gone six months unbeaten in the league, the Reds are still three points away from the league leaders Manchester City.
Regardless of the Premier League chase being out of their hands, Jurgen Klopp will be pushing his side to not to give up and win the remaining fixtures.
We are pricing a commanding victory of 3-0 for the away side at 9/1 (10.00), with the likely goalscorers being Mo Salah at 49/50 (1.98) and Diaz at 9/5 (2.80)
If you are anticipating a tactical encounter with Aston Villa frustrating Liverpool and closing the gaps, we are pricing under 2.5 goals in the match at 5/4 (2.25)
Aston Villa are at 9/1 (10.00) to win and over 2.5 goals scored in the match, with a Philippe Coutinho scoring against his old employers at 18/5 (4.60).

WATFORD VS EVERTON
PREMIER LEAGUE FORM: L – L – L – L – L VS W – W – L – D – W
Watford host Everton this Wednesday as the Hornets attempt to finish their season on a high by dragging their opponents down into trouble. Fans at Vicarage Road will once again see their side drop from the Premier League as a 1-0 defeat to Crystal Palace sealed their faith in the relegation battle.
Everton beat Leicester 2-1 to make it two in a row, pushing them up to 16th place with a game in hand and a point above Burnley and Leeds. The goal from Mykolenko was a thing of beauty, hitting the ball on the volley and leaving Schmeichel stranded. After Leicester pulled themselves back into the contest, it was the one and only Mason Holgate, who once again headed the winner through a clinical set-piece.
With the Home side already relegated, this might be the best scenario for Everton to claw themselves well past the danger zone and get a valuable three points.
We are pricing Everton to win to nil at 21/10 (3.10) and Richarlison to score anytime during the match at 7/5 (2.40)
Both teams to score is at 3/4 (1.75)
A Watford correct score win of 2-1 is at 12/1 (13.00)

WATFORD: Kamara, Kucka, Pedro, Louza
EVERTON: Nathan Patterson, Van de Beek, Andros Townsend
MATCH ODDS: Watford are valued at 31/9 (4.45) to win, whilst Everton are at 6/7 (1.85), and a draw at 11/4 (3.75)
LEEDS VS CHELSEA
PREMIER LEAGUE FORM: L – L – D – W – D VS D – L – D – W – L
Leeds find themselves in danger of relegation as they suffered another damaging defeat at the hands of Arsenal. Chelsea, on the other hand, let a comfortable lead against Wolves slip, with Bruno Lage’s side equalising in the 97th minute to make it 2-2, much to the dismay of Thomas Tuchel.
Leeds came undone in the game’s opening minutes against Arsenal as an unaware Meslier tried to play it out from the back. Eddie Nketiah, who was rushing the goalkeeper, managed to sow chaos and poke the ball into the back of the net, giving the home fans something to cheer about. Five minutes later, Nketiah was on hand to make sure a ball from Martinelli was converted into a goal, doubling the lead in only the first 10 minutes of the game.
Chelsea have struggled to string positive back-to-back results, with defeats against Everton and Arsenal disrupting their progress. In their last five games, the Blues only won once – two draws and two losses, making it a disappointing end to the season.
Chelsea to win to nil at 2/1 (3.00), with the Belgian Romelu Lukaku to score anytime during the match at 3/2 (2.50)
Leeds to win and over 2.5 goals in the match 23/4 (6.75)
