The Premier League features four matches in midweek, with the FA Cup semi-finalists playing rescheduled fixtures before the big weekend at Wembley. Check out a brief preview and tips on each below.
All pricing comes from William Hill and correct at the time of writing.
Brighton v Tottenham (Tuesday 7:45pm)
Brighton take on Tottenham at the Amex Stadium, with the home side looking to secure safety and Tottenham looking to bounce back from defeat.
Brighton’s 3-2 loss to Crystal Palace was their fourth loss in five games without a win, as Chris Hughton’s side struggle to get across the line and keeping their Premier League status. Tottenham lost their first league game in fourteen, as Man City did a double over them at Wembley in a lacklustre Spurs display, that was probably their poorest of the season.
Tottenham eased to a 2-0 win in the previous meeting and on current form, you have to expect another win for the visitors, as they look to maintain a Champions League spot. Brighton can cause a few issues and get on the score sheet, but it’s at the back, where they will falter/
Tottenham to win and both to score @11/5
Bournemouth v Manchester United (Wednesday 7:45pm)
Bournemouth take on Man United, with neither side having much to play for, as the Cherries find themselves safe and Man United look destined for second place, after City won the title.
Bournemouth have won just once in the last eight games and were brushed aside by Liverpool at the weekend. Man United’s three match winning run was ended by West Brom on Sunday, in a poor performance by the Red Devils, as the Baggies continue to fight the drop.
Man United won the earlier encounter 1-0 at Old Trafford between the sides and with Jose Mourinho expected to rest one or two players, Bournemouth may have a minor chance, with the draw, their best option.

Burnley v Chelsea (Thursday 7:45pm)
Burnley take on Chelsea at Turf Moor, with the Clarets looking to get into the top six and Chelsea looking to close the gap on sides above, as they hunt a Champions League place.
Burnley have been superb this season and Sean Dyche’s side are currently on a run of five successive wins, beating Leicester 2-1 at the weekend. Chelsea kept alive their slim hopes of a top four finish as they came from behind to beat Southampton 3-2, for a first win in three.
This will be a tough game for Chelsea, especially against a Burnley side in such good form. The Clarets have not lost to Chelsea in the last two meetings, including a superb win at Stamford Bridge last time out. I expect another close game, with a draw on the cards.
Draw bet @12/5
Leicester City v Southampton (Thursday 7:45pm)
Lastly, Leicester City take on a Southampton side desperate for points, as Claude Puel looks to condemn his old Saints side to likely relegation with another loss
Leicester have been off the boil somewhat, losing the last two matches and picking up a single win in the last four games. Southampton find themselves five points adrift of safety and without a win in the last seven game, despite some encouraging performances at times.
This looks likely to be a Leicester win, with home advantage and Southampton’s poor form, both big factors. The Saints loss after being two goals up will have severely dented confidence and I can only see vardy and co enjoying a few goals here.
Leicester -1 goal handicap @16/5
