- Chelsea vs Everton – Chelsea may have beaten Liverpool in midweek – and potentially unearthed a star in Billy Gilmour, but they still have plenty of problems: on the absentee list here will be Jorginho, Kante, Kovacic, Pulisic, William and Abraham. Everton (W3 D3 L1) have been excellent under Carlo Ancelotti, and if nothing else they are very difficult to beat at the moment.
- Barnsley vs Cardiff City – A run of three straight victories for Barnsley was ended last time out against Reading, ironically in a game in which they dominated the Expected Goals count. But there’s no reason to think the good times have ended for the Tykes, and especially so against a Cardiff outfit that is treading water at the moment. The Bluebirds have gone four without a win, conceding seven in that span.
- Preston vs QPR – A wobbling Preston will still go off as a warm favourite here, but they will be tested to the hilt by a QPR outfit that remains one of the most stylish attacking firms in the Championship. The hosts here have lost three of their last four games, and while we acknowledge the inconsistency of the Hoops they are at least on a five-game unbeaten run, blasting eight goals in their last four into the bargain.
- Swansea City vs West Brom – Despite going down to Wigan last time out, we still consider that to be something of an anomalous result for West Brom, who along with Leeds are streets ahead of the rest in the Championship. Swansea’s downturn (W1 D4 L3) in form has coincided with long-term injuries to key figures, and so there isn’t a long queue forming to back them here.
- Fleetwood Town vs Blackpool – It’s difficult to oppose the obvious claims of Fleetwood here at an excellent price against their local rivals. On a run of W6 D1 L0, Joey Barton’s side are playing confident, winning football, and that is a major plus against a Blackpool side that is hardly pulling up any trees. Their results have improved since the departure of Simon Grayson, but underlying performance data suggests an element of good fortune nonetheless.
