Leicester City famously beat Manchester United 5-3 last season and the Foxes will be fancying their chances of another scalp on Saturday evening.

Claudio Ranieri’s team sit top of the Premier League table and it’s a surprise that 11/5 (bet365) is available about the Midlands team winning this clash.

The Red Devils are a point behind their opponents and have been chalked up as 13/10 favourites with Ladbrokes.

Louis van Gaal’s side have won four of their seven away matches this term, although can they stop the in-form Jamie Vardy? William Hill make him the 9/2 favourite to open the scoring at the King Power Stadium.

Everton are 6/4 with Ladbrokes to claim a third win in four matches, with Romelu Lukaku looking to follow up his brace with a goal against a Bournemouth side struggling at the wrong end of the table.

The Belgian can be backed at 9/2 (BetVictor) to break the deadlock against a Cherries side who have only won one of their six games at home.

Bournemouth are as big as 19/10 (Paddy Power) to win this game, with Eddie Howe having seen several key players get injured this season, while the draw is a 5/2 poke (Sky Bet) and it’s worth noting that Everton’s last away match ended all square.

Crystal Palace are 8/11 (Stan James) to beat Newcastle although the Eagles stumbled against Sunderland on Monday night.

Steve McClaren will hope his team can follow a similar game plan and the Magpies are 21/5 (BetVictor) to land a much-needed three points.

Manchester City were also beaten last weekend and they are 1/2 (Winner.com) to beat Southampton, although the Saints could pose problems for a team who played a midweek Champions League game in Turin.

Ronald Koeman’s side are chalked up at 5/1 (Ladbrokes) to nab an away win.

Sunderland clash with Stoke and it doesn’t look a game for the purists, with Paddy Power offering 2/1 that the Black Cats follow up that win at Selhurst Park with another victory.

The Potters have been grinding out results on the road and they are 7/5 favourites (Sky Bet) for this match.

Tottenham clash with Chelsea on Sunday lunchtime, with Spurs slight favourites at 6/4 (William Hill) to beat a Blues team who are 10 points behind their opponents right now.

However, Jose Mourinho’s side are 2/1 (Stan James) to get their campaign back on track at White Hart Lane.

West Ham have hit a slump although they are warm favourites (10/11 Stan James) to beat West Brom on Sunday afternoon.

Nevertheless, the Baggies beat Arsenal last weekend and 16/5 (Winner.com) looks like a big price about the away win.

Norwich could be facing Arsenal at a good time, with the Gunners missing a raft of players through injury and BetVictor are among those firms laying 4/7 about the away win.

The Canaries are 5/1 (Paddy Power) to get over the line in this game and claim a precious three points.

Liverpool will hope to push towards the top four places after that fabulous 4-1 win over Manchester City.

Winner.com have 8/15 about Jurgen Klopp’s team landing three precious points, with Swansea a 6/1 shout and the draw has been chalked up at 3/1 (bet365).

The Reds have only won two of their six Premier League matches at Anfield, although the players are starting to adjust to the new manager’s tactics, with another 4-1 victory priced up at 25/1 (Stan James), while a more modest 2-0 scoreline is available at 7/1 (BetVictor).

The National Hunt racing season is in full flow and it is the Hennessy Gold Cup on Saturday, with Coneygree having been withdrawn from the race during the week.

That means a wide open contest and Saphir Du Rheu is the 7/2 favourite (Sky Bet) despite being top weight.

Bobs Worth is a 6/1 chance (Ladbrokes) and the one-time Cheltenham Gold Cup winner has got claims at Newbury, while Smad Place is trading at a similar price and has been the subject of money in the lead-up to the race.

If In Doubt’s odds have also started to shrink and the 9/1 (bet365) might not be available on the day for a race where the bookies will pay ¼ odds for the first four places.

Betting tips: Stoke to beat Sunderland @ 7/5 with Sky Bet, Crystal Palace to beat Newcastle @ 8/11 with bet365.
