Morata’s suspension could cost Chelsea


Alvaro Morata’s absence may be a crucial factor when third-placed Chelsea visit improving Everton on Saturday.

The Spanish striker is suspended after picking up his fifth yellow card of the campaign during the League Cup quarter-final victory against Bournemouth.

Without Morata, Antonio Conte’s side do not have a focal point for their attack and Everton, who have taken 10 points from their last four games, are good enough to beat last term’s Premier League champions at 5/1.

Brighton and Watford have both struggled recently and a draw at 43/20 could be the best option at the Amex Stadium.

The Seagulls are without a victory in their last six top-flight games while the Hornets have only collected seven points from their last 10 matches, and so a goalless draw at 29/4 may be worth a look.

There would appear to be little chance of Bournemouth ending Manchester City’s unbeaten run.

City have scored 97 league goals in 2017 so far and are 33/10 to beat Eddie Howe’s team by a three-goal margin to reach the century mark.

Inconsistent Southampton can return to winning ways by beating Huddersfield at 20/33 while Saints are 21/20 to keep a first clean sheet in 10 games.

West Brom can bring their 16-game winless sequence to an end by beating Stoke City and adding to the pressure on Mark Hughes. The Baggies are 15/2 to win 1-0.

Managerless Swansea City could slip further into the relegation mire given they are facing Crystal Palace at exactly the wrong time.

The Eagles clinched their first away win of the campaign at Leicester last weekend and are 31/20 to triumph again at the Liberty Stadium.

David Moyes has galvanised West Ham and they are 6/1 to edge to a 1-0 win against troubled Newcastle while Tottenham may have to settle for a draw at Burnley. The Clarets do not score or concede many goals and a 1-1 draw at 29/4 may be the best bet.

Two teams that crashed out of the League Cup in midweek meet at the King Power Stadium when Leicester take on Manchester United. Jose Mourinho’s side are available at 6/1 to beat the Foxes from behind.
