Chelsea and Arsenal look set to retain the top two spots on the Premier League ladder with a pair of lopsided Round 15 matches scheduled for this weekend.
Chelsea lead the EPL by three points after beating Manchester City last week while Liverpool suffered a shock 4-3 loss to Bournemouth.
The London club should retain the top spot after their home match against West Bromwich Albion, with William Hill paying just $1.25 for a win against a whopping $13 for a loss at Stanford Bridge, with $6 for a draw.
Fellow Londoners Arsenal are free to concentrate on the Premier League for the time being after downing FC Basel 4-1 during the week to finish atop their Champions League group for the first time since 2011.
Arsenal have not conceded a goal to Stoke for more than two years, since its 3-2 loss on December 6, 2014.
Liverpool and Manchester City will be looking to put last week’s disappointment behind them and stay in touch with the lead when they play West Ham and Leicester City respectively.
The two teams are level on 30 points, four off the lead, and should retain their third and fourth spots on the ladder.
City are on shorter odds for its match at Leicester, who are expected to welcome back Denmark goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel from injury.
Sixth-placed Manchester United are tipped to make the most of its home-ground advantage against fifth-placed Tottenham.
United are 13 points off the lead on 21 and must win at Old Trafford if they are to have a chance of contesting for the title this year.
Southampton have a chance to move into the top half of the table with a home win over Middlesbrough.
