Managerless Chelsea and Leicester City feature in 25/1 acca

Leicester City and Chelsea begin new eras on Tuesday as they each head into their Premier League matches without a manager, and we're featuring both clubs as part of our mid-week Premier League accumulator.

Sunday was a dramatic day for the top flight as the Foxes parted company with Brendan Rodgers in the afternoon before the Blues dispensed with Graham Potter later. 

As of writing, neither has appointed a successor, with interim coaches set to take charge for their respective games on Tuesday. 

Leicester take on an improving Aston Villa side, while Chelsea face a familiar foe in Liverpool, themselves enduring their own relatively mediocre season. 

There are two other games on Tuesday, as relegation rivals Leeds and Nottingham Forest meet at Elland Road. 

Meanwhile, there could be goals on the south coast as Bournemouth host Brighton, with both teams still having plenty to play for this term.

Tuesday four-fold 25/1 Premier League acca:

Bournemouth v Brighton - Over 2.5 Goals @ 4/5
Leeds to beat Nottingham Forest @ 4/5
Aston Villa to beat Leicester @ 9/5
Mohamed Salah to score at anytime against Chelsea @ 2/1

All prices are correct at the time of writing and are subject to change.

Expect excitement on the south coast

Bournemouth have boosted their survival hopes by winning their last two home matches, beating Liverpool 1-0 and Fulham 2-1 to lift themselves out of the bottom three. 

They host European contenders Brighton on Tuesday, a side who have lit up the Premier League under Roberto De Zerbi. 

The Amex outfit have lost just once in 14 games in all competitions so far in 2023 to station themselves in sixth in the table and book their place in the semi-finals of the FA Cup. 

Their free-flowing style has seen them become a favourite for the neutral, with four of their last five matches featuring over 3.5 goals. 

However, Bournemouth's improvement makes it tough to go all out by backing Brighton but a more entertaining affair than the Seagulls' 1-0 win in the reverse fixture feels more likely.

Leeds can edge out relegation rivals

WhatLeeds v Nottingham Forest

When19:45, Tuesday 4th April
OddsLeeds 4/5, Draw 13/5, Nottingham Forest 7/2

Leeds (17th) and Nottingham Forest (15th) meet at Elland Road with just a point separating the sides in their battle to avoid relegation. 

The Whites again showed some positive signs despite losing 4-1 at Arsenal on Saturday and have lost just one of their last six at home in all competitions. 

Forest drew 1-1 at home to Wolves over the weekend to extend their winless run to seven matches, with their last victory a 1-0 success against Tuesday's opponents on 5th February. 

However, the Tricky Trees have the worst away record in the Premier League, while four of the Yorkshire club's six Premier League wins this season have come at home and they could improve that tally on Tuesday.

Villa to punish managerless Foxes

WhatLeicester v Aston Villa
WhereKing Power Stadium, Leicester
When19:45, Tuesday 4th April
OddsLeicester 6/4, Draw 23/10, Aston Villa 9/5

Leicester were in the headlines on Sunday for letting Rodgers go following their 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace 24 hours earlier. 

Long-term backroom staff members Adam Sadler and Mike Stowell have been installed in temporary charge and have been tasked with preparing the team to take on an improving Aston Villa side who beat Chelsea 2-0 on Saturday. 

That result was the one that ended Potter's spell at the Blues and the 47-year-old is now being lined up as Rodgers' replacement. 

Villa also replaced their manager earlier this season, moving quickly to employ Unai Emery after a slow start under Steven Gerrard. 

The West Midlands club were 17th when Gerrard was sacked but now sit ninth and head an hour or so east unbeaten in five. 

Leicester won February's reverse fixture 4-2 but the pair's respective form since then has seen them go in different directions and Villa can further demonstrate their improvement under Emery by getting revenge.

With Potter out, Bruno Salter has been placed in interim charge of Chelsea for Tuesday's game at home to Liverpool. 

The Reds were also on the wrong side of the scoreline on Saturday, losing 4-1 at Manchester City. 

Both teams have some catching up to do if they are to finish in the European places and their current issues are a far cry from last season when they met in both the EFL and FA Cup finals. 

Those two matches ended goalless and went to penalties, while the reverse fixture earlier this season at Anfield also finished 0-0 to contribute to a run of five straight draws between the sides.

However, with Chelsea failing to keep a clean sheet in their last three and Liverpool losing their last three, this could be a bit more open and that will suit Mohamed Salah. 

The Egyptian opened the scoring at the Etihad and, having netted in both league meetings last season, could strike again against his former club.
