There are two English Premier League matches taking place on Sunday and we take a look at each of them from a betting angle.
These will be the final 2 matches in the EPL until after Christmas as the League takes a break to allow for the World Cup in Qatar.
Heading into this weekend Manchester City are still strong favourites at 1/5 to win the English League title with Arsenal at 5/1 and you can get 50/1 and better the balance.

Brighton v Aston Villa – Click here to bet
Brighton have recovered from a mini slump and they are back up to 6th on the table after back-to-back victories 3-2 away at Wolves and 4-1 at home to Chelsea. Brighton’s last 3 games have all seen 4 or more goals scored, 50% of their matches at home this season would have delivered you a profit had you backed over 2.5 goals.
Aton Villa are 13th on the table and have won 2 of their last 3 fixtures both of those coming at home against Manchester United and Brentford. Their last away game was a 4-0 hammering at Newcastle and Aston Villa have yet to win on the road this season with 2 draws and 5 defeats. Aston Villa’s last 4 games have all seen over 2.5 goal backers collect profits.
Aston Villa did the double over Brighton this season, but based on current form I can’t look past the home team here and I am backing them to take all 3 points. If you are not as confident on Brighton another option could be the over 2.5 goals currently trading at 10/11.
Suggested Bet: Brighton win at 17/20
Fulham v Manchester United – Click here to bet
Fulham are currently 9th on the table and are coming off a 2-1 away defeat to Manchester City. Their last home game was a goalless draw against Everton and overall at home this season they have won 3 and drawn 3 of their 7 fixtures.
Manchester United are 5th on the table and saw a 5 match run without defeat ended last time out when they lost 3-1 away to Aston Villa. They have taken 10 points from a possible 21 on the road this season.
Looking at the goal stats, 6 of the 7 Fulham home matches have reached the 3 goal mark while 4 of the 7 Manchester United games have done likewise.
Current betting sees Manchester United trading at 9/10 favourites with Fulham and the draw both trading at 29/10. Fulham will be no pushover at home and I fancy both teams to find the net here however it is trading fairly short at 6/10 and I am going to settle on Fulham to get at least a point out of this game.
Suggested Bet: Handicap, Fulham +0.5 goals at 19/20
