Now that it’s March, we are officially in the business end of the season. While the Premier League title is soon to be wrapped up, there is still much to play for and plenty of cracking fixtures ahead. We take a look at some of this weekend’s offerings.
Liverpool to get back to winning ways vs Bournemouth
Liverpool have shown that they are, in fact, human over the last few weeks. An FA Cup defeat by Chelsea on Tuesday preceded a 3-0 defeat by Watford at the weekend, not forgetting a first leg loss to Atletico Madrid in the Champions League round of 16 two games prior.
That second leg takes place just four days after Saturday’s match-up against Bournemouth, so Jurgen Klopp will want to use the game to gather some positive momentum going into the Atletico tie but will also want to be fresh for it.
Bournemouth will no doubt be a threat at times but the Reds should have this one in the bag. On the seven occasions that they’ve hosted bottom-half clubs this season, Liverpool have put away 30 goals, so we could see a few from Klopp’s side here. Over 3.5 total match goals is priced up at 5/4.
Burnley to leave Tottenham feeling blue
It would seem that not a lot has gone well for Tottenham in recent weeks. Their injury woes, as well as a recent dumping out of the FA Cup by bottom-of-the-league Norwich, has stalled much of the momentum that they had put together just prior.
A trip to Burnley on Saturday isn’t exactly an easy task, especially when you consider that they have kept the highest number of clean sheets in the Premier League this season (11), save for Liverpool’s 12. They have also conceded fewer goals from set pieces, penalties aside, than any other Premier League outfit this campaign.
The fact that Jose Mourinho has never lost against Burnley doesn’t seem to hold that much weight here and it’s easy to see the visitors frustrated once again. Take the 17/10 on offer for a Burnley win.
Chelsea to reign supreme over Everton
Everton make the trip on Sunday down to the capital to take on a Chelsea side who they are looking to beat for the third time in a row, a feat they haven’t achieved since 1984. They will be buoyed by the knowledge that the Blues have only won two of their eight Premier League games since the turn of the calendar year.
That said, Chelsea’s last match saw them eliminate Liverpool from the FA Cup and a home game here could be a great chance for them to continue their winning ways against an opponent who are winless in their last 24 Premier League games on the road against the Blues. Chelsea are 17/20 for the win.
