Hull and Swansea can boost survival hopes


The Premier League action continues over the weekend and with a number of the top teams playing in the FA Cup, those at the bottom will be looking to take the limelight.

Hull will be aiming to boost their survival hopes when they welcome Watford to Humberside. The Tigers sit 17th in the table but have won five of their last six at home and are 10/11 to extend that run.

Their opponents are 10th and now appear safe following three wins in their last four. The Hornets’ away form is not great though but they are still a tempting 16/5.

The draw is 13/5 but Marco Silva’s men are desperate for the win and a home victory with both to score at 53/20 looks a likely outcome.

It’s 18th place Swansea who also need the points and are set to host another side who appear safe, Stoke.

Paul Clement made an excellent start to life in South Wales but his team now find themselves on a run of six without success.

This could be their chance and they are 6/5 for the victory against the Potters who ended their recent poor run last time out with a win over Hull. Another triumph is 5/2 and they will be hoping for a similar outcome to the 3-1 they secured against the Swans in October.

A draw is 23/10 but the Welsh club’s desperation means they are hard to ignore, especially with Fernando Llorente expected to be fit.

Elsewhere and Bournemouth can perhaps condemn second bottom Middlesbrough at the Vitality Stadium.

The Cherries are another who have allayed relegation fears but defeats to Chelsea and Tottenham mean they probably need another victory (20/23) to secure their top flight status.

Boro have not won in 15 and that is perhaps demonstrated in their price of 33/10. The Teessiders have shown more attacking intent in recent weeks but may once again fall short.

Finally on Sunday, Burnley host Manchester United. The Clarets have never lost at home to United in the Premier League and are a good price for an 11th victory of the season at Turf Moor (23/4).

The Red Devils beat Chelsea last time out and need the points to maintain their hopes of breaking into the top four. An away victory is 5/9 but this could be a cagey one and the draw at 3/1 could be on the cards.
