Leicester City’s title charge is HAPPENING


There is a full programme of midweek Premier League matches, with Leicester City looking to stay top of the table

Leicester City’s title charge is HAPPENING. The Foxes are the only team to average more than two points per match and the Midlands side clash against Liverpool on Tuesday night looking to keep up the good work.

There are seven other clashes that evening, with Arsenal hosting Southampton at the Emirates looking to gain revenge for a surprise 4-0 mauling at St Mary’s during the festive period. However, the Saints were recent 1-0 winners at Old Trafford and can’t be dismissed.

Norwich will have gone back to defensive basics after a 5-4 reverse against Liverpool although Tottenham look tricky opponents and there’s a chance that Spurs could lift the title come May.

Sunderland have a thankless task when hosting Manchester City and a red-hot Sergio Aguero, with Sam Allardyce looking to contain opponents who continue to score buckets of goals.

West Ham v Aston Villa is the BT Sport-televised clash, with the Hammers looking to keep hold of that top six spot, while Crystal Palace entertain a Bournemouth team fresh from a 2-1 win at Fratton Park in the FA Cup.

Manchester United are up against Stoke City, with Mark Hughes looking to complete a rare Premier League double over his former club, while Louis van Gaal will hope to see his team play with the sort of freedom that got the job done at Derby in the FA Cup.

West Brom are probably the most boring team in the league so we might not expect too many goals against a Swansea team who are picking up nicely in a bid to avoid relegation.

On Wednesday, Everton will hope to gather some momentum from beating Carlisle in the FA Cup and they host a Newcastle team in the bottom three.

Watford and Chelsea clash at Vicarage Road, with John Terry revealing he’s set to leave Stamford Bridge in the summer although perhaps the central defender will now be offered the contract he’s hankering after.
