Manchester United vs Chelsea is the big Premier League clash of the weekend, and it’s a match with plenty of significance with Tottenham breathing down their necks in the race for a Champions League spot for next season. We’ve tips for Manchester United vs Chelsea, Crystal Palace vs Tottenham, Leicester vs Stoke, and Watford vs Everton.
Leicester vs Stoke (Saturday 12.30, Sky Sports)
Stoke have managed three draws with Leicester in their last five head-to-heads but they were all at Stoke, whilst the two games at Leicester in this time resulted in 3-0 and 2-0 wins for Leicester. Stoke’s away form has also been poor or late with just one point from their last five away games. They’ve also lost three of those five games to nil. Meanwhile, Leicester’s home form has been decent with three wins and two draws in their last five home games, winning three of those games to nil against Watford, Huddersfield and Bournemouth. Therefore, as those three teams all sit above Stoke in the Premier League, there must be every chance that Leicester will again win to nil.

Watford vs Everton (Saturday 5.30, BT Sport)
Everton are four points above Watford in the Premier League but will be hoping to stop a run of three consecutive away defeats. They have won their last two matches against Watford but, as those were at Goodison Park, it may be more significant that Watford won last season’s renewal of this fixture 3-1, whilst the season before it ended 1-1. Watford have also won two of their last four home games and, with those wins coming against Chelsea and Leicester, they’re probably decent value to win and close the gap on Everton.

Crystal Palace vs Tottenham (Sunday 12.00, Sky Sports)
Tottenham travel to Crystal Palace on the back of five consecutive away draws in all competitions but will surely be all out for the win needed to keep them in the race for an all-important Champions League spot for next season. However, despite a decent recent run of form, Crystal Palace can’t afford to take their foot off the gas either as still only one point above the relegation zone. That means this could be hard-fought affair, which would be very much in keeping with recent games between the two sides. The last four games between them have actually ended 1-0, with Tottenham winning the three league games and Crystal Palace winning an FA Cup match. It’s tempting to go less than 1.5 goals again but, with Palace playing well, it may prove wiser to with a bit of a buffer and go less than 2.5 goals.

Manchester United vs Chelsea (Sunday 2.05, Sky Sports)
Home advantage has proved just that in the last four matches between the two teams, but last season’s win in this fixture for Manchester United was their first win in this fixture in the last six, with four draws and one Chelsea win. Chelsea have been struggling away from home in recent weeks though and, with United going for a fourth straight home win, the current run of home advantage may continue.
