We analyse and preview all three …. with our recommended bets posted below.
Southampton vs Man Utd: Saints half-time, United full-time 20/1 here :
Chelsea vs Spurs: 1-1 correct score 15/2 here :
Southampton vs Man Utd, 2pm
United weren’t overly extended in beating Istanbul Basaksehir on Tuesday, but consider this … the Old Trafford outfit have dropped Premier League points following their last NINE Champions League victories (D3, L6).
The visitors have won three, drawn one and lost one of their last five league games – but Saints have scored first in seven of their nine league games, United have conceded first in five of their eight and gone on to recover nine points (W3, L2).
United have also come from behind to win nine head to heads between the two sides in the Premier League era.
So a small wager on Southampton to lead half-time and United to win at a huge 20/1 is recommended.
Chelsea v Spurs, 4.30pm
The irresistible force meets the immovable object in a genuine super Sunday showdown.
Chelsea have won seven and drawn three of their last 10, including a Champions League win on Tuesday which sealed a place in the knockout stages. Tottenham went top of the table by beating Manchester City last weekend, part of a won six drawn two sequence which might have been even more impressive but for conceding last minute levellers at home to West Ham and Newcastle.

Expect Jose to park his usual bus. Since arriving at Spurs, the pragmatic one has presided over nine encounters with top-six teams, only one of which have featured four goals or more with five paying out for Under 2.5 Goals backers.
Arsenal v Wolves, 7.15pm
The Gunners are seeking to avoid an unwanted record – three successive home defeats without scoring for the first time since December 1908.
Arsenal ’s defence, the division’s joint-second best, has been let down by an attack that hasn’t scored in open play for five consecutive Premier League matches. Nine goals after nine rounds is Arsenal’s lowest tally since 1986/87.
