Blues battle for Toffees revenge

After being toppled in their previous meeting, Premier League champions Chelsea will seek domestic revenge over Everton as they collide once again at Stamford Bridge during this weekend’s top-flight afternoon clashes.

Chelsea v Scunthorpe United - Emirates FA Cup - Third Round - Stamford Bridge

The Blues were dispatched 3-1 in that previous league meeting under Jose Mourinho, and they are 7/2 with Coral to face another disappointing defeat at the hands of Roberto Martinez’s Toffees this time around.

Although, the Londoners have enjoyed a domestic revival under their temporary Dutch coach Guus Hiddink and are 13/5 to triumph with both sides getting on the scoresheet.

Steven Naismith hit a hat-trick in that last meeting and is 7/2 for another goal anytime, though in-form frontman Romelu Lukaku is a more likely threat, with the clinical Belgian 13/2 to open proceedings. Meanwhile, rejuvenated Blues forward Diego Costa 3/1 to net two or more after a recent run of rampant form.

Man City chase Palace victory at home

Manuel Pellegrini’s Manchester City are looking to keep the pace with league leaders Arsenal with a victory over Crystal Palace, but they face a side which they have already toppled twice this season.

The Sky Blues overcame Alan Pardew’s Eagles (7/1) narrowly at Selhurst Park domestically with an injury-time winner from youngster Kelechi Iheanacho (9/2 last scorer) but thumped their opponents 5-1 in a League Cup meeting.

Iheanacho was again on target in that most recent hammering, with record signing Kevin De Bruyne also playing a starring role, and the Belgium international is 7/4 to net anytime. Meanwhile, Eagles star man Yohan Cabaye is always worth backing in the anytime market at 4/1.

The Cherries sit one place and two points below Alex Neil’s Canaries in the fight to avoid relegation, with the south coast club 10/3 to taste a potentially fatal defeat on home soil.

Cameron Jerome and Wes Hoolahan starred in that previous 3-1 win last year and are 15/8 and 6/1 to strike anytime again, while Cherries new January signing Juan Iturbe is 5/1 to net the game’s last goal on his possible full debut.

Toon target further Hammers home success

Following a gallant 3-3 stalemate with Manchester United, Newcastle United will look to continue their slight revival over West Ham United, a side they have lost to just once at St James’ Park since 1998.

With such a strong home record held over the Hammers, Steve McClaren’s Magpies are 13/4 to win to nil on Tyneside, while Slaven Bilic’s men are 19/10 for three points on their travels.

Toon maestro Georginio Wijnaldum is one goal away from reaching double figures for the current campaign and is 2/1 to achieve that target anytime, while West Ham’s returned playmaker Dimitri Payet is 7/1 to score first.
