Premier League Wednesday Preview - The Gambling Times

Premier League Wednesday Preview

Liverpool look to keep pace with leaders Manchester City on Wednesday.

Jurgen Klopp’s men are still unbeaten in the Premier League and they will look to continue that form as they travel across Lancashire to face second from bottom Burnley.

The game of this midweek, though, is surely at Old Trafford as in-form Arsenal could rise to third with victory over out-of-sorts Manchester United.

To go into third, Arsenal would also need Chelsea not to win – and they face a trip to Wolves, who have lost five of their last six league games.

Tottenham are looking to bounce back from their weekend loss in the North London derby as they host manager-less Southampton at Wembley.

Everton moved into sixth at the weekend and they will remain with victory over Newcastle at Goodison.

The final game of the evening travel to Craven Cottage to face Fulham.

See below for a preview on the games, including predictions from former England, Crystal Palace and Tottenham midfielder Andy Gray and our own Football Insider Graeme Bailey and bet365’s Steve Freeth.
