Chelsea to beat Leicester

Chelsea, one of three Premier League sides yet to lose at home in the league this season, are worth backing this weekend despite their short price.

The Blues ended Manchester City’s unbeaten start with a 2-0 victory last time out at Stamford Bridge and have only failed to beat Everton, Manchester United and Liverpool at home in all competitions.

Leicester’s only away victories this season have come against strugglers Cardiff, Southampton and Newcastle, while they have failed to take any points in their four games against the big six.

Southampton to beat Huddersfield

Southampton looked invigorated last weekend as they beat Arsenal 3-2 at St Mary’s in Ralph Hassenhuttl’s first home game in charge.

That was the first time the Saints have scored three league goals since March 2017 and their second victory this season as the new manager brings about positive change.

They are great value to make it back-to-back victories against a Huddersfield side that have lost four straight matches and scored only 10 league goals – the fewest in the Premier League.

Manchester City to beat Crystal Palace and over 3.5 goals

Manchester City have a 100 per cent home record in the Premier League this season and it’s hard to see them slipping up here.

Just three of City’s nine victories at the City of Manchester Stadium have had fewer than four goals, while the aggregate score from their last four home games against Crystal Palace is 19-1.

The visitors have lost six and drawn one of their last seven away games in all competitions so, at evens, this represents brilliant value.

Newcastle to beat Fulham

Newcastle’s 1-0 win away to Huddersfield last weekend ensured they would spend Christmas outside the relegation zone.

The Magpies have won both of their games against sides in the bottom three and are unbeaten against any team currently below them in the table.

Bottom-of-the-league Fulham were beaten 2-0 at home to West Ham last weekend and have now lost 10 of their last 12 matches in all competitions.
