Premier League Saturday Accumulator: Manchester City headline 33/1 four-fold

There are eight matches to enjoy in the Premier League this Easter Saturday, including an evening clash at St Mary's Stadium where bottom-of-the-table Southampton will be aiming to spring a surprise against title-chasing Manchester City.

Saints will head into the fixture sitting four points adrift of safety, while City need the victory for entirely different reasons, as they look to close the gap on league leaders Arsenal at the top of the standings - with the Gunners not in action until Sunday. 

That match gets underway at 17:30, while the early kick-off also involves a team from Manchester taking on a side battling against relegation, as Manchester United welcome Everton to Old Trafford. 

There are also six matches kicking off at 15:00, the pick of which may come at Molineux where Wolves will play host to a Chelsea side that will have the returning Frank Lampard in the dugout for the first time since he was named interim manager earlier this week.

Saturday four-fold acca:

Our Premier League four-fold selection is priced up at almost 33/1:

Manchester United to win and under three goals against Everton @ 13/5 
Aston Villa to beat Nottingham Forest with -1 handicap @ 8/5 
Chelsea to win at Wolves @ 10/11 
Manchester City to win to nil against Southampton @ 10/11

Odds were correct at time of writing and are subject to change.

United to come through sticky Toffees test

OddsMan Utd 1/2, Draw 10/3, Everton 11/2

Last weekend's defeat at Newcastle threatened to derail Manchester United's top-four hopes, but they returned to winning ways with their midweek 1-0 home success over Brentford - a result that extended the Red Devils' unbeaten run at Old Trafford to 23 matches across all competitions. 

With 20 of those 23 matches ending in victory, it is fair to say Erik ten Hag has turned Old Trafford into something of a fortress over recent months, with only the top two, Arsenal and Man City, collecting more home points than United in the Premier League this season. 

That record will give Everton cause for concern ahead of Saturday's lunchtime kick-off, especially as the Toffees have only won one of their 14 league matches on the road this season, with that sole victory coming over six months ago. 

The Toffees have become harder to beat since Sean Dyche's arrival as manager and, with United having failed to score more than one goal in four of their last five games, this could end up being a low-scoring contest. 

However, United should still have enough quality to, just about, get over the line, with the home win and under three goals in the match perhaps providing good value at 13/5.

In-form Villa to breeze past hapless Forest

OddsAston Villa 3/5, Draw 16/5, Nottm Forest 17/4

Unai Emery is certainly enjoying life in the Aston Villa dugout, as since the Spaniard's arrival at the club in November, only Arsenal and Manchester City have accumulated more Premier League points than Villa. 

That run of form, which includes Villa winning five of their last six league fixtures, has turned the second city club from relegation candidates into European hopefuls. 

Villa can further underline those European credentials with victory at home to Nottingham Forest this weekend, and they will fancy their chances of picking up the win given Steve Cooper's side have accumulated the joint-fewest away points in the division this season. 

Forest are also without a win - home or away - for eight matches, and Villa's comprehensive 3-0 win over another relegation-threatened team, Bournemouth, in their last home fixture outlines value in backing the hosts to win with a -1 handicap at 8/5 in the Handicap Result market this weekend.

Lampard's return to start with a victory

OddsWolverhampton 31/10, Draw 5/2, Chelsea 10/11

A familiar face returned to Chelsea this midweek, with the club's former manager and all-time record goalscorer Frank Lampard taking over as interim boss until the end of the season following last week's departure of Graham Potter. 

Lampard will be hoping to steady the ship at Stamford Bridge, with Chelsea having slipped into the bottom half of the standings following a three-match winless run, and a trip to Molineux to take on struggling Wolves could provide the ideal tonic. 

Wolves will head into the fixture sitting just a point outside the relegation zone and having won just one of their last seven games, while they were comfortably dismantled 3-0 by Chelsea in the reverse meeting between the two sides earlier this season. 

Saturday's fixture may not be as comfortable for the Blues, but they still look the value option at 10/11 to win the match, which would certainly send Lampard and Co home happy.

City to get their Saints revenge

OddsSouthampton 10/1, Draw 5/1, Man City 1/4

Manchester City can move to within five points of leaders Arsenal at the top of the standings if they secure victory at Southampton, and they will fancy their chances of doing just that given they are on a seven-match winning run across all competitions. 

City will also have revenge on their mind at St Mary's, as Saints claimed a surprise 2-0 victory when the two teams met in the EFL Cup in early January. 

That result was a shock for many reasons, not least as Southampton's home form has been disastrous for much of the campaign, as they have only won twice in 14 top-flight games at St Mary's. 

Ruben Selles' side are also struggling for goals - averaging just a goal-per-game at home this season - and there could be more misery on the cards this weekend, with City looking good value at 10/11 to win the match to nil in the Result/Both Teams to Score market.
