The winter break is officially over and it’s time to get stuck into a more familiar footballing schedule this weekend. With all 20 Premier League teams in action across three days, we’ve taken a look at some of Sunday’s best bets.
Patience a virtue for United against Watford
Any hopes being harboured by Manchester United of finishing this season in the top four were hugely boosted by their 2-0 victory against Chelsea on Monday night. The Red Devils enter this fixture with Watford as 4/7 favourites in a match that could potentially reshuffle the teams directly above them.
They face Watford who have everything to play for, namely their plight for Premier League survival. Though it’s difficult to look past the hosts at Old Trafford here, their quest to bag all three points may have to be a patient one. The Hornets have not been in a losing position at half-time in any of their last nine games in the league.
A potential stumbling block for United here is that they had to navigate an away match against Club Brugge in the Europa League on Thursday evening. That 1-1 draw may have led to a few tired legs which could prove costly in a game that they may have to grind out. Under 2.5 goals is available at 17/20.
Wolves to pile on the Canaries’ misery
At the start of the season you would have been forgiven for laughing at the idea that Wolves would be in the mix for a Champions League spot at this stage of the year.
Nonetheless, it’s the end of February and they now face rock-bottom Norwich in a bid to further their ambitions to qualify for Europe’s most elite competition. Wolves are rather understandably 1/2 to take the match compared to the Canaries’ 6/1 shot.
Despite the massive gulf between the two teams in the Premier League table, neither side has had goals in plentiful supply, whether that’s on the road or at home.
Arsenal to edge it over Everton
The day’s late kick-off sees Arsenal host Everton in what is almost certain to be a great Premier League contest. Featuring two teams who have been progressing well under their recent managerial appointments, it should be an entertaining Emirates showdown.
The home side are 21/20 favourites to emerge victorious and will be further buoyed by the fact that Alexandre Lacazette ended his two-month goal drought when netting against Newcastle in their last home game, before scoring against Olympiacos on Thursday. He’s 9/2 to score first on Sunday.
It’s safe to say that the 4-0 win over the Magpies and Europa League victory against Olympiacos puts Arsenal in good stead here. But though the Gunners are unbeaten in 2020, they will be coming into this fixture off the back of that trip to Greece and any tired legs could prove costly.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin has 11 goals to his name for Everton this season and is enjoying a current scoring streak of six in his last eight appearances. The Toffees forward is 4/1 to get his name onto the scoresheet first on Sunday evening.
