Tottenham’s 1-1 draw at home to West Ham on Thursday, followed Arsenal and Chelsea playing out a 2-2 draw on Wednesday night, meaning in the race for a top 4 finish, Liverpool were the big winners.
Betfair currently have Chelsea looking a cert at 2/13 in Top 4 Finish Betting. The Blues are then followed by both Man Utd and Liverpool, who are both priced up at 3/10. On the back of tonight’s 1-1 draw, Spurs have now drifted out to 5/4, with Arsenal the main outsiders at 3/1.
It’s onto the FA Cup this weekend, so the Premier League will be taking a break for a few days. When it does resume on Saturday 13th January, Chelsea open up the proceedings at home to Leicester (3pm kick-off). They are then followed by Tottenham who have a tricky looking home fixture to Everton in the evening kick-off (5.30pm).
Arsenal are away to Bournemouth on Sunday, in what looks like a winnable match for Wenger’s men. The big showdown of the whole weekend comes on Sunday, when Liverpool host Manchester City at Anfield, kick-off 4pm (this match can be watched with a Sky Sports Day Pass), this fixture surely has the potential to open the door for Spurs and Arsenal to close the gap on Klopp’s team.
The weekend’s fixtures are then rounded off by Manchester United, who are at home to Stoke on Monday 15th, kick-off is at 8pm. It’s hard to see anything other than 3 points in that match for United.
