Spurs vs Fulham (6pm) - POSTPONED DUE TO COVID OUTBREAK AT FULHAM
Newcastle United vs Liverpool (8pm) - Prime Video
Liverpool to Win both Halves (vs Newcastle United)
Liverpool face Newcastle in the late Wednesday evening game. Let's hope this one is played!
Liverpool will be extra keen to make sure they take all three points after dropping two points to a late WBA goal at Anfield. Newcastle come off the back of a 2-0 defeat against Manchester City.
Newcastle United are winless in their last seven games against Liverpool so you would have to believe in Santa, to seriously consider backing 10/1 with Betfair on the Newcastle win!
Newcastle are without Jonjo Shelvey, Ryan Fraser, Allan Saint-Maximin and Jamaal Lascelles, so will have a bit of threadbare depth to them. Liverpool have defensive problems with Joel Matip unlikely to play after coming off injured against West Brom.
Newcastle haven't kept a clean sheet at home since beating Sheffield United 3-0 in June. You can get 9/1 with Paddy Power on Newcastle keeping a clean sheet in this one.
Liverpool usually don't let up after going 1-0 up, but against West Brom, that's exactly what they did. This might not be best time to play Liverpool for Newcaslte as I fully expect Klopp to read the riot act to get a performance out of his side. I can see a ruthless 2, 3, 4 goal win for Liverpool as they lay down a marker.
I'm backing a proper dominant Liverpool display against Newcastle United. I reckon the best way to bet on that is with a bet on Liverpool to win both halves at 9/5 with Paddy Power.
TOTTENHAM VS FULHAM POSTPONED - DUE TO COVID OUTBREAK AT FULHAM
Tottenham Win and Over 2.5 Goals (vs Fulham)
Tottenham face Fulham at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the early evening game on Wednesday.
Bale, Moura and Vinicius are doubts and Giovani Lo Celso is also expected to be absent. Fulham should have a near full strength team as they face Spurs for the first time since a 2-1 league defeat in January 2019 .
Fulham have made big strides since the early weeks of the season, but still don't look like winning many games (5/1 with Paddy Power to win this game).
Surprisingly five out of the last six Premier League games for Spurs has resulted in under 2.5 goals, but that's bound to reverse at some point. You can get even money on over 2.5 goals with Betfair if you fancy it to change on Wednesday.
Fulham last beat Spurs in March 2013 with 1-0 away win, and you can get 16/1 with Bet Victor on the same score line. If you were going to give Fulham a chance a 0-0 (10/1 with bet365) or 1-1 (7/1 with bet365) seems to be results Fulham like, with two of each in their past four games.
Spurs have been on a dodgy run, but at home against Fulham should be good way to restore confidence for Jose Mourinho's team. I can see a 2-1 (8/1 with Bet Victor) or 3-0 Spurs (13/1 with Bet Victor) victory, so reckon the best way to bet on this match is backing Tottenham win and over 2.5 goals at 6/4 with Betfred. This is a bet that would won in the last five matches between the sides.
