|All Five Results as an Accumulator||11.48/1|
- Chelsea vs Southampton: Yes – Chelsea’s excellent win at Tottenham was not without downsides: Cesar Azpilicueta has picked up a hamstring injury, and midfield dynamo Mateo Kovacic is suspended for this game. The Blues kept a rare clean sheet against Spurs, but we still expect Southampton to give them a good game at Stamford Bridge. Since losing 0-9 to Leicester, the Saints have been much improved and are now getting the results to go with those performances.
- Leicester City vs Liverpool: Yes – No Matip, no Lovren and no Fabinho could spell festive problems for Liverpool, whose exploits in Doha must immediately be put on the back burner as the return to the nitty gritty beckons. Leicester, hurting after defeat to Manchester City, will not operate as defensively here on home soil, and this could be a titanic Boxing Day treat for viewers.
- Barnsley vs West Brom: Yes – West Brom top the Championship table, but theirs is a success built on scoring goals rather than keeping them out – the Baggies have shipped in 78% of their matches so far. Barnsley, despite their own lowly league position, have scored two or more goals in four of their last five games, and will give the Midlanders a good game here.
- Leeds United vs Preston: Yes – As Cardiff (3-3) and Fulham (1-2) have evidently shown of late, if you want to get a result against Leeds you have to attack them. That’s a philosophy that suits Preston down to the ground, who always look more dangerous when set free of their shackles by Alex Neil. This feisty ‘War of the Roses’ style clash could well be a TV cracker as a result.
- Reading vs QPR: Yes – The Reading players have responded in fine fashion to Mark Bowen’s management, and now the goals are starting to flow too: the 3-0 win over Derby saw their ninth goal netted in five outings, and the second time they blitzed three inside 90 minutes in that spell. QPR, meanwhile, are no strangers to finding the net themselves: in their last four, they have won 2-0 twice, drawn 2-2 and lost 3-5.
