The key storylines in Tuesday’s Premier League games

| 12.12.2017

Champions could be in for another shock

Tuesday night’s Premier League fixtures see a trio of clashes that could have a bearing on both ends of the table.

Chelsea, Burnley, and Crystal Palace are all involved with a number of intriguing plotlines developing.

The Coral News Team take a look at the key storylines and best bets.

Can Terriers bite the Blues?

These two clubs saw contrasting weekends in the Premier League. Huddersfield stopped the rot with a win over Brighton and Hove Albion, while Chelsea suffered a shock loss at West Ham United.

Can David Wagner’s side continue their mini-revival against the Champions? And can Chelsea get back on track?

The Terriers have already beaten Manchester United at home this season. And the Blues could be their next big victims.

Chelsea have only won two of their last five away from home in the league, while Huddersfield have won three of their last four at home.

The Yorkshire club are 15/2 to win. But a better play might be to take them on the Double Chance market at 19/10.

Mark Hughes is a man under pressure

Speaking of contrasting fortunes, things couldn’t be more different at Burnley and Stoke.

Sean Dyche’s side are level on points with Tottenham Hotspur in seventh after another good win over Watford.

Stoke shipped five at home to Spurs during the same round of games. Mark Hughes is a man under pressure. One wonders how much time the ex-Blackburn Rovers manager has left at the Potteries.

The Clarets have won five of their last seven and kept three clean sheets from their last four at home. Stoke have kept just one clean sheet away from home this term.

Backing the Burnley win at 5/4 just makes sense.

Can Palace revival continue under Hodgson?

Since Roy Hodgson’s arrival at Crystal Palace, there has been a marked upturn in the Selhurst Park outfit’s results.

The Eagles are unbeaten in five. But have won just one of those games. That’s meant the London club remain at the foot of the table.

But for Christian Benteke’s stoppage-time penalty miss against Bournemouth, it would have been two more points under their belt.

Hodgson’s side are definitely playing much better stuff. Against Watford, they will have to perform at their very best to get something.

Watford aren’t in the best form, and this has to be an opportunity for Palace. They’re 6/5 to win and backable at that price.
