Aston Villa vs Norwich: Double Chance Norwich-Draw $2.90 at PlayUp 

After a promising start to life as a Premier League manager for Steven Gerrard, things have gone a bit flat for him and his Aston Villa side of late. 

Struggling to score goals, keep clean sheets and, of course, accumulate points, Villa have slid down the table at an alarming rate and aren’t quite out of the woods as far as relegation is concerned.

One side destined for the drop are Villa’s weekend opponent, Norwich. 10 points adrift at the foot of the table, The Canaries are at least showing some spirit, defeating Burnley, drawing with Brighton and putting up a good fight against Man United in recent games.

Only a win will keep Norwich’s ultra-slim chances alive and with Dean Smith also returning to his old stomping ground for the first time since being sacked by Villa, we anticipate Norwich having enough motivation to delay the inevitable for at least one more week.

Everton vs Chelsea: Everton Draw No Bet $3.40 at PlayUp

Despite losing pretty much every game on the road, Everton are at least picking up points at Goodison where they’re unbeaten in three (2 wins and a draw) and demonstrating more resilience. Can they extend their mini home run when Frank Lampard’s ex-employer, Chelsea, visits on Sunday?

Well, that kind of depends on what Chelsea turns up. Erratic is the best way to describe the way Thomas Tuchel’s side are performing right now. Despite having an FA Cup Final coming up, you sense that Chelsea are looking forward to the end of a testing season.

Even more so if Everton can keep up their recent good form in this fixture. Believe it or not, Everton have had the edge in recent seasons, winning this game three years in a row; you have to go back to 2017 for the last time Chelsea left Goodison Park with all three points.

While it’s a tough one to call, history points to Everton making life difficult for Chelsea so backing them with Draw No Bet at 3.40 is excellent value.
