Liverpool v Leicester City – H 2/7 (1.28) D 9/2 (5.50) A 9/1 (10.00)
Fourth-placed Liverpool will welcome Leicester City at Anfield on Saturday, but it could well be a hard battle, especially since the Reds have conceded two draws at home in the last three matches. Online sportsbooks in UK give Liverpool favourite odds for the encounter and we’d place normally place our money on them, but the Foxes have known to surprise on occasion this season while playing on the road.

Leicester City have performed poorly in recent games which has seen them recording two losses and a draw, with the other two games ending in wins over the last five encounters. Currently, they sit in 8th position with 27 points – a far cry from their position two years ago at the same time of the year, a season which they clinched the Premier League title and made history.
Newcastle v Brighton – H 11/10 (2.10) D 11/5 (3.20) A 13/5 (3.60)
When Man City visited St James Park on Wednesday they managed to extend their lead at the top of the table with a slim 0-1 victory, and now they have an astonishing 58 points from a possible 60. With Man United suffering a second draw in a row, they hold 15 points less than their cross-town rivals.

The defeat against Pep Guardiola’s men was Newcastle’s fourth loss in the last five encounters, with their only victory during this time coming away against West Ham. The good news for the Magpies is that Brighton have lost the last three games they played away from home, so this could give Newcastle a slight boost in confidence when they face them this weekend at St James Park. We’re willing to place a bet on a win for the home side with a potential draw with goals.
Manchester v Southampton – H 1/3 (1.30) D 4/1 (5.00) A 8/1 (9.00)
Jose Mourinho’s men first recorded a 2-2 result against Leicester City on the road and then followed that up with another 2-2 tie against Burnley at Old Trafford on Boxing Day. Can they break the curse against Southampton this weekend? We are willing to bet with providers of internet betting in UK they will clinch a much-needed victory, although the gap between them and Pep Guardiola’s side is significant – 15 points.
The Sparks currently maintain a terrible form that has seen them lose on three occasions and two draws over the last five matches. And with their defensive star set for a move to Anfield imminently during the January transfer window, they’re likely to lose confidence as they gear up to face Jose Mourinho’s side.
