Both sides to score in Reds triumph
Saturday, January 21st. 12:30 GMT kick-off. Live on BT Sport 1.
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are nine games unbeaten at home this term and sit joint second in the table.
The Reds are a relentless pressing and scoring force that most cannot deal with.
They have only failed to score in three of 21 league games this term and possess the best offence in the division, scoring 49 goals this season.
Expect the Anfield outfit to record a comfortable home win, but Swansea look likely to test the Merseyside club’s defence.
The Reds have conceded in three of their previous four games and Swansea will be determined to drag themselves out of the relegation dogfight.
Back Liverpool to win but both teams to score in this weekend opener at 17/10 with Betfair.
Kane to bag brace or better
Saturday, January 21st. 17:30 GMT kick-off. Live on BT Sport 1.
Fresh off the back of hitting the hat-trick and celebrating the birth of his first child, Kane will look to take advantage of City’s porous defence.
The England striker has netted an outstanding 13 in 16 Premier League games this term and will have watched John Stones’ dire performance at Goodison Park with glee.
Spurs come into the clash flying high on six consecutive wins. While, the Etihad outfit have lost twice in their previous three PL games.
Kane has netted two or more four times in the league this season and is a generous 17/2 with Paddy Power to bag a brace or better against City.
Foxes to fell Saints to nil
Sunday, 22nd January. 12:00 GMT kick-off. Live on Sky Sports 1.
Southampton are in free fall and have lost each of their last four league outings.
Combine this with their offensive record, the second worst in the division, and a Leicester City victory looks likely.
With the Champions League over until mid-February, reigning Premier League champions Leicester can focus solely on their league exploits.
Despite losing Riyad Mahrez and Islam Slimani to the Africa Cup of Nations, a 15/8 punt on the Foxes defeating sinking Saints to nil with BetVictor looks worth it.
Giroud to net first in Clarets clash
Sunday, 22nd January. 14:15 GMT kick-off. Live on Sky Sports 1.
Burnley have lost their last five away games and the recent history of this fixture doesn’t make pretty reading.
Arsenal are unbeaten in this encounter over the last seven clashes with the Clarets and haven’t lost at home in nine league matchups this term.
A huge part of Arsenal’s recent resurgence has been France forward Olivier Giroud hitting a purple patch at the right time.
The Frenchman has four goals in the same number of games and is 3/1 with Betfred to open the scoring at the Emirates. Giroud has broken the deadlock in three of his last four outings.
Solid at home, Burnley have struggled on the road this season and are rock bottom when it comes to away results.
Losing nine and drawing the one, the Turf Moor side are winless on the road and unlikely to threaten the Gunners’ goal.
Chelsea to win by three goals
Sunday, 22nd January. 16:30 GMT kick-off. Live on Sky Sports 1.
Hull City have only beaten Chelsea once since 1925 and it doesn’t look like that record will change anytime soon.
Marco Silva got off to a perfect start as Tigers boss, winning 3-1 home, but this Antonio Conte side is a three-point juggernaut.
Despite losing Diego Costa to a ‘back injury’, Conte’s Blues cruised to a 3-0 triumph over Leicester.
This sees Chelsea maintain a seven point gap between their nearest title challenger.
The Stamford Bridge side’s joint most common result this season has been a 3-0 triumph, recording it on four occasions.
So, with Hull possessing the worst away defensive record, back the Blues to win by three goals this Sunday at 15/4 with Bet365.
