Premier League Wednesday Preview

Liverpool have the chance to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table to seven points on Wednesday.

The Reds will have been boosted by the shock loss of Manchester City on Tuesday, and they will look to take full advantage of that as they host Leicester City.

Tottenham and Chelsea look to maintain their grip on the top-four. Spurs host Watford at Wembley, whilst Chelsea travel to Bournemouth.

The final game is a huge one at the bottom as 16th plays 17th with Southampton hosting Crystal Palace – both are just three points above the drop-zone.

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.
