Reds to go top on restricted weekend


The FA Cup means there is a limited schedule of Premier League action this weekend but there is still plenty to play for and Bournemouth can harm Newcastle’s hopes of sealing their top-flight place.

Bournemouth to win @ 21/20

The Magpies were the 2-1 winners at St James’ earlier in the season and head into the weekend sat six points clear of the bottom three thanks to last weekend’s dramatic 3-2 win over Everton.

However, they have never won in the Premier League at the Vitality and face a Cherries team who have got some of their big guns back, with David Brooks and Callum Wilson recently returning to fitness in time for the 2-0 win at Huddersfield.

Although Rafael Benitez may feel his team need more points, they are probably just about safe and have undoubtedly improved since Miguel Almiron’s January arrival from the MLS.

But, having lost only once in their last six at home – that defeat coming to Manchester City – Eddie Howe’s side can take an entertaining game and value-hunters may even extend to the home victory and BTTS at 59/20.

West Ham to win to zero @ 7/5

It could be a drabber affair at the London Stadium where West Ham take on rock bottom Huddersfield.

The Terriers’ stint in the Premier League looks set to be nearing its end with them collecting just 14 points from 30 games and having won just once away from home all season.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side threw in a typically inconsistent performance in last week’s 2-0 defeat at Cardiff but have been good at home in recent times, avoiding defeat on their own patch since December.

Having seen off Newcastle 2-0 in their last game in Stratford, a repeat of that scoreline is 5/1 and all in all it should be another three points for the hosts.

Liverpool to win and both to score @ 31/20

Finally to one of Sunday’s games and Liverpool should have no issues against a Fulham side destined to follow Huddersfield out of the Premier League.

Despite significant investment, it has simply not happened for the Cottagers and 17 points for the season. They have shown signs of improvement in caretaker boss Scott Parker’s two games in charge but are still some way short of the required standard.

In contrast, Liverpool seem to have rediscovered their mojo and sent out a statement to their European rivals by smashing Bayern Munich 3-1 on Wednesday.

Jurgen Klopp’s side still look a touch vulnerable at the back though, but this appears a good chance to build some confidence and they can ease to a victory that will take them to the top of the Premier League, with Manchester City in FA Cup action.
