Premiership fans can look forward to a full round of midweek fixtures and there is plenty of value on offer.

<h2>Huddersfield v Wolves</h2><p>The Terriers have well and truly lost their bite and they are rooted to the bottom of the Premiership table after suffering five straight defeats. Wolves are unbeaten in eight games and occupying the lofty heights of eighth in the standings, so these clubs are very much headed in opposite directions. Nuno Espirito Santo’s men should be able to pick up a vital away win against Huddersfield, but they will need to play much better than they did when these teams met earlier this season. That finished 2-0 to Huddersfield at Molineux, the Terriers’ only away win of the campaign and one of only two victories they have secured all season. However, Wolves are now on a roll and Huddersfield are struggling badly, so the tables could well be turned.</p><p><strong>Tip:</strong> Wolves to win at 17/20 (1.85) with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=153&amp;a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6" target="_blank">Betfair</a></p><h2>Newcastle v Burnley</h2><p>Both of these teams are in fine form and they are up to 14<sup>th</sup> and 15<sup>th</sup> in the table respectively, having put a modicum of daylight between themselves and the relegation zone. Burnley will be surging with confidence after picking up a huge victory over title chasing Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend. Forwards Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes have been brilliant of late, while Tom Heaton is on fire between the sticks. Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez continues to earn plaudits for making the Magpies competitive despite a lack of investment in the team. They beat Huddersfield 2-0 at the weekend and new signing Miguel Almiron looked lively. Backing both teams to score is risky when Newcastle are concerned, as they keep things tight at the back, but Burnley have scored and conceded in their last four games and this should be another entertaining game.</p><p><strong>Tip:</strong> Both teams to score at even money (2.0) with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b" target="_blank">William Hill</a>, <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=b4150791-892f-469b-9b6a-7dfc6df0fb07" target="_blank">Ladbrokes</a>, <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829" target="_blank">Coral</a> and <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=1ba923f3-5341-4bda-b457-0138ac61ae7a" target="_blank">Betfred</a></p><h2>Arsenal v Bournemouth</h2><p>The Gunners swept Southampton aside with a dominant display last time out and they should feel confident in their ability to beat another south cost team on Wednesday. Bournemouth are strong at home but dreadful on the road, having lost their last nine away games in a row. They are unlikely to end that dismal run at The Emirates, where Arsenal have won 11 of 14 league games this season. They beat Bournemouth 2-1 at the Vitality Stadium in November, and they should take another three points in front of their home fans.</p><p><strong>Tip: </strong>Arsenal to win and under 4.5 goals at 19/20 (1.95) with Ladbrokes and Coral</p><h2>Chelsea v Tottenham</h2><p>Spurs were not at the races in that defeat at Turf Moor and they will have to bounce back quickly as they take on Chelsea on Wednesday. They are boosted by the return of Harry Kane, who has shaken off an injury, and they will be desperate to return to winning ways ahead of crucial clashes against Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund. Chelsea will be tired and jaded after suffering a penalty shootout defeat to Man City after extra-time in Sunday’s Carabao Cup final. The club is a mess right now, with the goalkeeper refusing to come off when substituted and manager Maurizio Sarri going berserk on the sidelines. Spurs should be able to capitalise on the confusion and pick up a vital win.</p><p><strong>Tip:</strong> Tottenham to win at 2/1 (3.0) with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18" target="_blank">Bet365</a>, Betfred and <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=3e56a0bf-7bdf-4fe1-b9a6-d22c7cc3dd2c" target="_blank">Betway</a>, or Tottenham draw no bet at 11/10 (2.10)</p><h2>Crystal Palace v Man Utd</h2><p>The Eagles are soaring at the moment, having picked up four wins and two draws in their last six games. They are nudging closer to mid-table and into the sixth round of the FA Cup and they will approach the business end of the season full of swagger. They thrashed Leicester 4-1 at the weekend, with Wilfried Zaha and Michy Batshuayi looking dangerous. Man Utd held on for a 0-0 draw against Liverpool, and their improvement under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is nothing short of remarkable. He has 11 wins, two draws and just one defeat in 14 games, but Selhurst Park is a tough place to visit and they will have to battle for every ball.</p><p><strong>Tip: </strong>Both teams to score at 8/13 (1.62) with Bet365 or both teams to score and over 2.5 goals for more value</p>
