Manchester United V Watford
Surprisingly these sides have only met 27 times, as expected Man Utd dominate winning 17 of them. They have drawn 5 times and Watford have won 5.
Before this season Man Utd had won 11 in a row but they were comfortably beaten earlier this season at Vicarage Road 3-1. Etienne Capoue put Watford 1 up in the first half. Marcus Rashford equalised in the 2nd half but late goals from Zuniga and Deeney sealed the points for the Hornets.
Utd have been struggling a little of late winning only 2 of their last 6 in all competitions and drawing 3. They did win comfortably last time out against Champions Leicester.
Watford have a good recent record having won 3 of their last 6 and drawn 2 of them. The last 2 matches they won both of them 2-1 against Arsenal away and at home against Burnley.
Man Utd to win is @1/4 across the board. The draw is @11/2 with Bet365 and Bet Fred, Watford are as big as @14/1 with Bet Victor.
Middlesbrough V Everton
These two have met 131 times in their history, Everton have won almost half of them with 63 wins. Middlesbrough have won 34 and they have drawn 34 times.
Middlesbrough have not won in 8 and have lost the last four against the toffees including last time out in the reverse fixture at Goodison when Everton came out on top in a convincing 3-1 win. Boro went ahead through a Stekelenberg own goal early on but then conceded 3 first half goals from Gareth Barry, Seamus Coleman and Romelu Lukaku on the stroke of half time.
Boro have been quite inconsistent of late winning 2, drawing 2 and losing 2 of their last 6 games in all competitions. Last time out they lost 1-0 away at high flying Tottenham.
Everton have been in very good form of late winning 4 drawing 1 and losing 1 of their last 6 games. That defeat came in the F.A Cup so their recent league form is fantastic. Last time ourt they scored 6 past Bournemouth in a 6-3 victory.
Middlesbrough are best priced with Bet365 @29/10. Everton are bet @6/5 with a few of the firms, the draw is best @23/10 with a few of the firms.
Stoke City V Crystal Palace
Stoke have faced Crystal Palace on 57 occasions, Palace have won 26 times they have drawn 12 and Stoke have won 18 times.
Palace have actually won the last 5 times these 2 have met including in this reverse leg when Palace destroyed Stoke 4-1. Goals from James Tomkins, Scott Dann, James McArthur and Andros Townsend sealed the victory and a late consolation goal from Marko Aunautovic completed the scoring.
Stoke have won 2, lost 2 and drew 2 of their last 6 games. They were on a decent unbeaten run until last time out when they slipped up in a 1-0 defeat at the hands of West Brom.
Palace have won 2 and lost 4 of their last 6 and have struggled this season. Last time out at home against relegation rivals Sunderland they suffered a shock 4-0 hammering.
Stoke can be backed @23/20 with a few of the bigger firms. The draw is best with Bet Fred @5/2 Palace are best @29/10 with Bet365.
Stoke @ 23/20 is my bet of the day!!!
Sunderland V Southampton
These 2 have faced off 67 times and its very close between them with Southampton just edging it with 26 wins to Sunderland’s 24. They have drawn 17 times.
Southampton are unbeaten in the most recent 4 clashes including a draw earlier this season and a victory in the EFL Cup in October, a Sofiane Boufal secured the win in that tie.
Sunderland have only won 1 of their last 6 and lost 3 times within that period. That win did come last time out though and was extremely impressive. They hammered Crystal Palace 4-0.
Southampton have won 3 and lost 3 of their last 6 but unfortunately they are on a run of 3 defeats including last time out when they lost at home to West Ham 3-1
Southampton are @11/10 to get a win here with most firms. the draw is @5/2 with a few of the firms and Sunderland are best priced with Bet365 @29/10.
