Chelsea’s enchancment beneath Thomas Tuchel has been exceptional and so they can proceed that good type on the expense of Manchester United on Sunday.
Admittedly, the Blues weren’t at their finest in opposition to Southampton of their newest Premier League task, however we are able to anticipate United to be a little bit extra adventurous than the Saints, affording Chelsea extra room to assault.
Ultimately, defence could possibly be the important thing to this one. Under Tuchel, Chelsea have conceded simply two targets in six outings, whereas United stay distinctly fragile on the again, so in a good contest, I shall be siding with the house workforce right here.
Northampton have been having fun with an upswing in type in current weeks and so they look an excellent wager to beat Bath in Sunday’s Gallagher Premiership conflict.
The Saints have received 4 in a row within the top-flight, with their most spectacular win coming in opposition to reigning champions Exeter at Sandy Park final weekend, and they’re closing in on a prime 4 spot.
It is true that the house facet shall be with out some key gamers in Courtney Lawes, Dan Biggar and Teimana Harrison, however their opponents have been extra significantly affected by worldwide call-ups with 9 of their squad concerned in Six Nations responsibility. That may make the distinction right here and I’m backing the in-form Saints to get the win.
John Higgins has by no means received the Players Championship, however he presents loads of worth in Sunday’s remaining as he bids to assert the trophy.
His opponent, Ronnie O’Sullivan, goes into the match as favorite, however that is not justified primarily based on his performances to date on this match. He struggled to beat Ding Junhui within the first spherical and slipped to a 3-0 deficit in opposition to Barry Hawkins within the semi-final, earlier than ultimately scraping by.
By distinction, Higgins has been in ruthless type, dispatching Mark Selby within the quarters and Kyren Wilson within the semis with out dropping a single body. In this way and at odds in opposition to, he appears a superb wager.
