On Wednesday night it’s Manchester City and Spurs‘ chance to close the gap on leaders against Brighton and Fulham respectively.
Scott Parker is seriously unhappy at the fixture reshuffle that’s led to their match in North London only being confirmed on Monday. Spurs are short enough at 2/5 but Parker’s comments don’t suggest Fulham will travel across London with much enthusiasm for the fixture.
Man City are even shorter at just 1/7 and this feels like one of those games where Pep’s side, who are hitting some belated form, will just sweep aside the opposition. Brighton have some maojor players out in the shape of Danny Welbeck, Aaron Connolly and Tariq Lamptey, Adam Lallana and Yves Bissouma who is suspended.

Turning into quite the Tayside derby between Dundee United and St Johnstone.
