Sean Dyche’s Burnley are flying right now. Sitting seventh in the top flight table, the Clarets have won three of their last four Premier League games at Turf Moor – all three without conceding a goal.
Meanwhile, Crystal Palace have shown signs of improvement in recent weeks whilst Watford have now gone three games without a win. A tough one to call, but it could be a real entertaining affair for neutrals.
Last but not least, we have Huddersfield Town hosting Chelsea. Antonio Conte’s men will be quietly confident of getting the job done but Huddersfield have already shown that they can go toe to toe with the Premier League’s big boys on their own patch – just ask Manchester United.
Check out our thoughts on Tuesday’s three top flight fixtures…
Burnley vs Stoke City
Chris Wood could be Burnley’s difference maker on Tuesday evening. The former Leeds United man is a real talent in the penalty area and it would be foolish to back against the hosts with Wood in decent form.
Stoke were once one of the toughest teams in England’s top flight but the Potters may struggle to cope with Burnley’s relentless pressure.
Burnley have conceded just two Premier League goals on home soil since the beginning of September and plenty of punters will fancy the Clarets to notch another win to nil in this fixture.
Stoke are languishing just above the relegation zone right now and Mark Hughes is under pressure. The 13/10 for a home win represents excellent value…
TIP: Burnley to win @ 13/10
Crystal Palace vs Watford
Opting for a draw may be the safest option here. Christian Benteke squandered a golden opportunity to snatch a winner for Palace last time out but the Belgium international missed from the penalty spot on that day...
Roy Hodgson was clearly annoyed at the striker immediately after the contest and he could do with a big game against Watford on Tuesday night. Expect Benteke to bounce back...
The Hornets, possibly distracted by talk surrounding Marco Silva’s long-term future at the club, have slipped down the Premier League table in recent weeks.
Watford are decent on the whole and some bettors will be keen to check the odds on an away victory. For me, the draw looks fair and very well priced at 49/20.
TIP: Match to be drawn @ 49/20
Huddersfield Town vs Chelsea
The Terriers have been pretty hit and miss so far this season – just as you’d expect from a newly promoted side.
Huddersfield were excellent against Manchester United earlier in the campaign and were very unlucky to lose to Pep Guardiola’s City last month. Staying in the Premier League remains Huddersfield’s number one priority this season.
Conte conceded that the title race was over after losing to West Ham United last weekend but the Blues will still look to cement their status in the top four.
Chelsea are up there with the strongest clubs in English football and another win looks likely here. Huddersfield will be up for it but Chelsea’s quality should shine through.
TIP: Chelsea to win @ 4/11
