The Premier League returns after a two-week international break on Saturday and there are some exciting games to look forward to.

Heavy investment in Portuguese talent has paid dividends and they find themselves seventh in the table as we approach the final eight games of the campaign. They will be keen to nail down a spot in next season’s Europa League and they can take a giant stride towards it at Turf Moor on Saturday. Burnley finished seventh last season, but they have struggled badly this term. They are no longer a force to be reckoned with at home and a run of four straight defeats has left them 17<sup>th</sup> in the table, just two points above the relegation zone. They are fighting for their lives, and desperate for points, so it is risky to oppose them, but odds of 153/100 (1.53) at Marathon Bet and 29/20 (2.45) at William Hill on a Wolves win look attractive. Both teams to score is also tempting at evens (2.0) with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b" target="_blank" title="William Hill">William Hill</a>, as each team has scored in four of their last five matches.</p><h2>Crystal Palace v Huddersfield</h2><p>Palace have a dreadful home record this season, having won just three of 15 games at Selhurst Park. They have scored a mere 11 goals at home all season, giving their fans very little to cheer. Fortunately, they have the league’s seventh best away record and they are pretty much clear of relegation danger as a result of that. Yet this represents a great opportunity to improve upon that home record, as Huddersfield have lost 11 of their 15 away trips. The Terriers are rock bottom of the table and heading back to the Championship with a whimper after enduring a truly miserable campaign. Crystal Palace now have a real livewire up front in Michy Batshuayi, while Wilfried Zaha will surely wreak havoc from wide areas, and that should see them overwhelm Huddersfield’s feeble defence. Crystal Palace -1 Asian handicap looks good at 17/20 (1.85) with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&a=8e57de00-8c0e-4848-b6da-ea2a0f565fb1" target="_blank" title="888 Sport">888 Sport</a>.</p><h2>Leicester v Bournemouth</h2><p>The Foxes have been galvanised by the arrival of new manager Brendan Rodgers and two straight wins before the international break catapulted them up to 10<sup>th</sup> in the table. They are just three points behind Wolves and might well fancy their chances of making that European place their own. Bournemouth have been pretty horrendous on the road this season, with 11 defeats in 15 games. Only bottom clubs Huddersfield and Fulham are in worse form than the Cherries, and Leicester should feel confident in their ability to win this one. Bournemouth have a number of injury problems, and Andrew Surman has now joined captain Simon Francis and several others on the treatment table. A Leicester win at 43/50 (1.86) looks attractive in the <a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/" target="_blank" title="football betting odds">football betting odds</a> on this game.</p><h2>Liverpool v Tottenham</h2><p>Liverpool desperately need a win as they bid to keep pace with Man City in an extremely tense title race. Yet Spurs also need points as they now have Arsenal, Man Utd and Chelsea breathing down their necks in the battle for a top four place. It finished 2-1 to Liverpool when these teams met at Wembley last season, but Spurs have an excellent away record this season. They are in poor form, but the international break could have given them a great chance to regroup. Spurs are still a strong team, blessed with the world class talents of Harry Kane, Son Heung Min and Christian Eriksen in attack. For those reasons, it is hard to justify backing Liverpool at just 11/20 (1.55). Both teams to score looks more interesting at 8/11 (1.83) with William Hill, as Liverpool’s attacking trio of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino should have plenty of joy in this game, but Kane is always dangerous.</p><h2>Arsenal v Newcastle</h2><p>Arsenal should head into this game full of confidence after securing impressive back-to-back wins at The Emirates. They beat Man Utd 2-0 to end Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s long unbeaten run in domestic competition, and then swatted aside Rennes to surge into the Europa League quarter-finals. They will have their work cut out against a tough, stubborn Newcastle side, but the Gunners should prevail in this one. They have been close to immaculate at home this season, with 13 wins and two draws from 16 games, and they should have too much pace and quality for the Magpies in attack. Arsenal and under 4/5 goals looks good here at 4/5 (1.80) with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&a=b4150791-892f-469b-9b6a-7dfc6df0fb07" target="_blank" title="Ladbrokes">Ladbrokes</a>.</p></div></div></div></div></div></div>
