Dyche to outshine Howe at the Vitality


There’s more Premier League action on Wednesday with six games to choose from and plenty of drama is expected in a rare midweek domestic treat.

All of the 7.45pm games are enticing as Bournemouth welcome Burnley, Arsenal take on Huddersfield and Chelsea meet Swansea.

Things are starting to settle on the south coast following a difficult start with them three unbeaten and now firmly in mid-table. The Clarets have impressed this campaign and will be licking their wounds after a second dubious home defeat to Arsenal in as many years.

Both are going well but Sean Dyche has further displayed his ability to set up a team to outmanoeuvre the opposition and it could be Burnley’s night at 16/5.

Meanwhile, at the Emirates, the aforementioned Gunners will be keen to add to Huddersfield’s current woes. A bright start looks set to turn into a long winter for the Terriers and the trip to north London is unlikely to bring much joy.

A home win to zero at 4/5 could be on the cards, the same as at Stamford Bridge where Swansea are the visitors. Chelsea are another who have had their issues but the Swans are on the slide and a win to nothing for the Blues is hard to ignore at 20/31.

At 8pm, Manchester City are obviously a short price to beat Southampton, but the Saints will be buoyed by Sunday’s 4-1 win against Everton.

This fixture provided an entertaining 1-1 draw last term and despite a lack of goals this term they will be hopeful of breaching a City defence without John Stones.

It is hard to look past City but maybe the home win with both to score at 29/20 could catch your eye.

Stoke against Liverpool promises to be an intriguing match with both in need of the points for differing reasons. The Potters are in danger of being dragged into the relegation battle while the Reds need every point they can muster for their top four shot.

Encouragingly for Jurgen Klopp’s men, they have won on both of their visits to the Potteries since being thumped 6-1 on the final day of 2014-15, and the away win seems sensible at 20/39.

Finally, the game of the night could be at Goodison Park where Everton take on West Ham. Both are in odious form, although the Hammers did show signs of improvement in Friday’s 1-1 draw with Leicester.

The Toffees are still searching for a manager and their shambolic displays, combined with David Moyes’ presence at his former ground in the away dugout, means the away win at 23/10 could be on the cards, especially with Everton seemingly far from good enough to do anything right.
