Tielemans the man for Leicester

In-form Leicester City kick off the latest round of Premier League fixtures this Friday and, with the finishing line in sight, the Foxes should maintain their charge towards a seventh-place finish.

Five wins from six since Claude Puel was sacked in February have seen the former Premier League champions move above Wolverhampton Wanderers into seventh, although Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have a game in hand on them.

Leicester’s rise has been built on the flourishing link-up play between attackers James Maddison and Jamie Vardy with the ex-England striker having bagged five goals in their last four matches.

Youri The One That I Want

Youri Tielemans is also finally showing the sort of form that Foxes’ fans had been hoping for when he arrived from Monaco in January.

And the Belgian looks a value play at 4.00 to bag anytime against Newcastle United after three goals in his last six for club and country.

The House of the Rising Son

Harry Kane left Tottenham Hotspur’s new stadium in a protective boot after injuring his ankle against Manchester City on Tuesday and Spurs are likely to miss him if he cannot play again this season.

But step forward Heung-min Son, who did an admirable job of keeping Spurs’ season on track between January and March when Kane was struck down by a similar problem.

Expect the South Korean to be pushed further forward again while Kane is out and he can be backed at an attractive 3.95 to score the opener against relegated Huddersfield in Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off.

Son loves Tottenham’s new surroundings too and scoring first is something he has done in both matches at the ground so far.

Saints Are Coming

Last Sunday, Wolves were left licking their wounds at Wembley when Gerard Deulofeu sparked an amazing Watford comeback to deny them a first cup final appearance since 1960.

Those sort of defeats aren’t easy to brush off so expect Southampton to be the beneficiaries of any hangover from Nuno’s men at St Mary’s.

Saints have notched in every home game since Ralph Hasenhuttl took the reins and have scored over 1.5 in three of their last six on the south coast. It means the 2.75 on offer for another multiple goal offering looks inviting enough.

End of the road for Cardiff?

And, if Southampton pick up the three points, Cardiff’s match at Burnley on Saturday becomes an absolute must-win for the Bluebirds.

Already five points adrift of safety, Cardiff are running out of time and winnable games in order to avoid an instant return to the Championship.

Five defeats in their last six and injuries to key players like Sol Bamba and Callum Paterson have hurt their brave survival bid and another mortal blow could be dealt to them by resurgent Burnley – 1.90 to win at Turf Moor.

Back-to-back victories for Sean Dyche’s men have eased their own relegation fears and they can virtually ensure another season in the top-flight on Saturday as a win would take them 11 points clear of Cardiff with five to play.

Blues Never Fade Away

The clouds that had been hanging over Everton have suddenly lifted after a winning run that extended to three games when they turned Arsenal over at Goodison Park last weekend.

They should maintain their upward trajectory against relegated Fulham, who fell apart in the second half against Watford last time out.

Marco Silva appears to have found a formula to keep goals out as his side have kept five clean sheets in their last six and it seems an obvious play to back another against lowly Fulham.

However, the Cottagers have not found scoring goals as much of a problem as keeping them out with 19 in their 16 previous home games this term so a better option might be to take them to score one goal exactly at 2.25.

That Ole Devil Called Love

Manchester United go up against West Ham in Saturday’s late game with the Hammers woeful away form unlikely to scare Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men.

Only one point from the last possible 21 on the road and only one goal in those last seven away trips suggest United are going to see plenty of support to keep a clean sheet at 2.30.

The top two are in action on Super Sunday with the leadership of the Premier League likely to change hands twice more before the day is out as Manchester City go first against Crystal Palace.

City to bounce back

Pep Guardiola’s side can put Tuesday’s loss to Spurs behind them as they return to London with a whiff of revenge in their nostrils as they will surely remember December’s 3-2 home reverse by the Eagles.

Palace virtually assured themselves of another season in the top-flight last weekend so one or two might take their foot off the gas for City, who will be looking for their ninth straight Premier League win.

Early goals have set City on their path to easy wins in their last two and this looks set up for another HT/FT stroll for City at 1.71.

Garden Of Eden

However, Liverpool face a tough test at home to a Chelsea side who won at Anfield in the EFL Cup earlier this season.

The Blues have not lost any of their last eight visits to the red half of Merseyside – a run which started in 2013 when Eden Hazard was on the scoresheet in a 2-2 draw.

The Belgian star stole the show on Monday night against West Ham and with a summer move to Real Madrid beckoning seems in the mood to help Chelsea extend their unbeaten run at 2.25 in Double Chance betting.

Goals in the game at the Vic

Watford look set to provide another stern test of Arsenal’s away form on Monday and might appear value to some to inflict a seventh loss on the road for the Gunners this season.

But goals look more predictable for this one with the 1.55 for Over 2.5 in an interesting play, given that the last five meetings between the sides have delivered it.
