We take a look at some of the potentially profitable markets from the 36th gameweek of the Premier League featuring Manchester United vs Chelsea and more.
Liverpool will attempt to keep the pressure on Manchester City when they take the field at Anfield on Friday night against already relegated Huddersfield, who only have pride to play for at this point. Tottenham go up against West Ham United on Saturday, with a win in the London derby likely to guarantee their place in the top four of the Premier League.
Wolves can take a decisive step towards the securing the 7th spot to themselves when they go up against 8th placed Watford at Vicarage Road. Everton, on the other hand, will hope to take advantage of any potential result in the aforementioned match as they face Crystal Palace.
Brighton can put some daylight between themselves and 18th placed Cardiff City with a win over Newcastle United. Sunday starts off with another tricky test for Arsenal, as Leicester City host the Gunners. The game is followed by another crucial tie as Manchester City travel to Burnley to maintain their slim lead in the title race.
Manchester United go head-to-head against fellow top four hopefuls Chelsea, with the winner likely to get an edge in the race.

Favourable Bets Result: 6/11
Underdog Bets Result: 2/6
THT Favourable Bets Overall: 178/325
Liverpool vs Huddersfield Town
The fixture looks done and dusted on paper, with Anfield proving to be an impregnable fortress and Huddersfield having nothing but pride to fight for on Friday night. But, the Terriers showed some positive signs against Watford, with players likely to be pumped to perform better to either get on the radar of other clubs or ensure their place in the team for the coming season.
This should be a Liverpool win but we expect Huddersfield to not be blown out of the water.
1. Huddersfield Asian Handicap +3.5 @ 1.575
2. Liverpool Clean Sheet – YES @ 1.53
1. Over 0.5 Cards in First 10 Minutes @ 10.00
Leicester City vs Arsenal
The Gunners’ Premier League season has been of incredible runs, both of wins and without them. Their latest two-game losing streak has seen them slip to fifth on the table, with the danger of missing out on a top four spot, something that looked to be in sight a couple of games ago.
Leicester are outside contenders for the seventh spot and have seen their own form take a bit of a dip in the last couple of games. But, overall, the Foxes have looked convincing once again, with the main change coming in the form of Jamie Vardy, who has found his footing once again. This is expected to be another tough fixture for Arsenal, who will be lucky to come away with all three points.
1. Both Teams to Score – YES @ 1.50
2. Full Time Result – Leicester or Draw @ 1.53
3. Jamie Vardy to score anytime @ 2.37
1. Jamie Vardy to score 2 or more @ 8.00
Manchester United vs Chelsea
Two teams who are in disarray. The home side have had to face the harsh reality of just not being good enough after the initial blitz under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Chelsea, on the other hand, seem like a team that cannot adjust to Sarri-ball, despite almost a full season of playing the same brand of football.
They are still pretty much in with a real chance of qualifying for the Champions League. A defeat for Manchester United would almost knock them out of the top four race. Solskjaer will be looking for a statement from his players after facing 7 losses in their last 9 games and we expect them to get a result against Chelsea on Sunday, with the home crowd cheering them on.
1. Manchester United Draw No Bet @ 1.83
2. Over 10.5 Corners @ 2.00
3. Manchester United to Win either half @ 1.80
1. Under 1.5 Match Goals @ 3.75
Wolves are winless in their last six away games and could be pumped to use the confidence gain from the 3-1 win over Arsenal to snap the streak when they face Watford. Brighton should do well to secure a result against Newcastle. Everton will be buoyed by the 4-0 win over Manchester United and should use the momentum to good effect against Crystal Palace.
Fulham vs Cardiff should have goals in it, irrespective of the result.
1. Watford vs Wolves – Full Time Result – Draw or Wolves @ 1.50
2. Watford vs Wolves – Both Teams to Score – YES @ 1.90
3. Crystal Palace vs Everton – Full Time Result – Draw or Everton @ 1.50
4. Fulham vs Cardiff – Over 2.5 Match Goals @ 1.72
1. Brighton vs Newcastle – Full Time Result – Draw @ 3.20
2. Southampton vs Bournemouth – Full Time Result – Draw @ 3.90
