FA Cup matches dominate this weekends fixtures other than the rescheduled Matchday 11 match between Aston Villa and Newcastle which takes place on Saturday evening.
Looking ahead to next weeks midweek Premier League fixtures, WhichBookie football analyst Matt Le Tissier shares his thoughts on upcoming games and along with his NAP, he has selected a double at odds of over 13/2 and his first patent bet of the season on three draws.
Crystal Palace v West Ham (18:00 Tuesday)
I think this will be a tough game for both sides and a difficult one to call. West Ham are in great form and Palace are always capable of doing something. I would say the value in this game would be on the draw at around 5/2 with Bet365.

Newcastle v Leeds (18:00 Tuesday)
This is another difficult one to call with both Newcastle and Leeds being out of form recently. I would probably side just with Newcastle as I think it’s a better chance for them to win a game given the form Leeds are in at the moment than perhaps against Villa on Saturday. You can get odds of just under 3/1 for Newcastle to win at home with William Hill which I think is where the value is.

Southampton v Arsenal (20:15 Tuesday)
I think with a full team in this game, the Saints have a good chance of winning it. Arsenal have picked up a bit recently but if Danny Ings is back and we have something near a full squad, I quite fancy us to get something.
I don’t really fancy us in the Cup on Saturday against Arsenal because I think the manager will play a youngish team again without Ings. However, in this league game, I think Southampton have a decent shot so I’ll be backing them at over 2/1 with Betfair.

West Brom v Man City (20:15 Tuesday)
In terms of a bet on this game, I think the only real value is in betting on how many City will win by. I imagine the way Sam will set his team up against City will be quite conservative so I think perhaps City to win by 1 goal may have a bit of value at over 3/1 with Boylesports.

Burnley v Aston Villa (18:00 Wednesday)
Burnley are just starting to pick up a bit after a poor start to the season but to me, the value here looks to be in the draw again. You can get odds of around 27/10 for the draw with Bet365.

Chelsea v Wolves (18:00 Wednesday)
I like the odds of 7/10 for Chelsea here. Wolves have struggled quite badly since Jiménez has been out this season. I think I’m right in saying that Wolves have conceded the first goal in every game so far this season since Jiménez has been out injured. They did manage to win one of those and draw a couple but they can’t keep doing that. Chelsea have too many good players to continue having such a poor run and so at 7/10 for Chelsea with Betfred, I’ll be making it my NAP this week.

Brighton v Fulham (19:30 Wednesday)
Fulham are starting to pick up and have had a lot of draws lately. Brighton don’t win many at home and I think they’re they only team in the league who haven’t had a home win this season. I’d be surprised if Brighton won this game and so I think the value is again in the draw in this match. I like to be a bit more decisive in my bets rather than pick too many draws but I can’t pick a winner here.
You can get odds of 27/11 for the draw with 10Bet.

Everton v Leicester (20:15 Wednesday)
I really like the way Leicester are playing at the minute. They’re in terrific form and their win against Chelsea was very impressive when they brushed them aside pretty easily. Everton are on a decent run as well but with the way Leicester are playing, I’d have to back them here at 31/20 with Unibet.

Man Utd v Sheff Utd (20:15 Wednesday)
Similar to the City match, I think this is again, how many goals you think United might win by. I think perhaps United to win by two goals is a way to get a bit of value out of this game. You can get odds of 3/1 for that bet with Bet365.

Tottenham v Liverpool (20:00 Thursday)
The way things are at the moment, Liverpool are really struggling to score goals and so I’ll have to go with Spurs in this match. You can back Spurs at around 21/10 with Betfred and Bet365.
