OddsMan Utd 29/20, Draw 5/2, Tottenham 7/4

Spurs' Premier League title ambitions will be given a good test on Wednesday when they make the trip to Manchester United. Tottenham have had some joy at Old Trafford in recent years, winning on two of their last four visits to the Theatre of Dreams.

Spurs star Harry Kane will return to a ground where he has had some joy, having scored in three of his last four visits.

The England striker will also have the added motivation that, if he does get on the scoresheet against United, he will become the first Tottenham player to have scored in six consecutive Premier League games.

Kane is 6/4 to score anytime and 9/2 to bag the opening goal of the game against a United side that have kept just one clean sheet in their last four home games in the Premier League.

OddsBournemouth 13/8, Draw 23/10, Southampton 13/8

Wednesday throws up a battle between two sides that are determined to make sure they avoid a relegation battle come the business end of the season.

Southampton head to Bournemouth sat in the bottom three going into this week’s games, while the Cherries have impressed in recent weeks to climb up to 10th place in the standings.

Gary O’Neil has done a sterling job since taking over on an interim basis from Scott Parker, with Bournemouth currently on a six-game unbeaten run after a 9-0 demolition by Liverpool.

Without a win in their last five Premier League games, the pressure is well and truly mounting on Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl.

The Cherries look good value at 13/8 to continue their positive form in what could be the end of the road for Hasenhuttl at Southampton.

New Chelsea boss Graham Potter has started to get a tune out of the Blues as they make the short trip to Brentford.

What has been most impressive about the Blues since Potter’s arrival is how his side have tightened up in defence.

OddsLiverpool 2/5, Draw 4/1, West Ham 6/1 

An injury-plagued Liverpool made a real statement over the weekend as they edged out Manchester City with a 1-0 win at Anfield.

The Reds’ troubles at the start of this Premier League season have been well documented, with injuries and poor form allowing the likes of Arsenal to pull ahead at the top of the table.

However, Mohamed Salah’s goal against Pep Guardiola’s side could be the catalyst needed to kick-start the Reds’ season as they welcome West Ham to Anfield next.

The Hammers have not found Anfield to be a happy hunting ground in recent years, having lost on all of their last five trips to the home of the Reds.

Keep an eye out of Salah once again, as the Egyptian seems to like playing against West Ham.

The former Chelsea forward has scored nine goals in seven Premier League appearances against the Hammers and is 11/10 to score anytime on Wednesday night.

Newcastle have been hit by the news they will have to do without striker Alexander Isak until after the World Cup, as the Magpies prepare to host Everton.

Newcastle will have to continue to cope without Isak as they look to build on a goalless draw against Manchester United last time out.

Everton have lost their way after wins over West Ham and Southampton, as they have suffered back-to-back defeats to Manchester United and Tottenham.

Six of the last eight Premier League games between these sides have ended with both teams getting on the scoresheet and the same to happen at St James’ Park on Wednesday is currently at 10/11.
