Chelsea’s re­cent woes look set to con­tinue when Manch­ester City roll into town this evening. A frag­ile de­fence could strug­gle to con­tain City’s po­tent at­tack. With Ra­heem Ster­ling, who is ar­guably the sea­son’s stand­out player, set to start af­ter be­ing rested against Wat­ford, Pep Guardi­ola’s team look great value to win the match at 10-11.

How­ever, the best bet in the Premier League this week­end is Burn­ley to beat Brighton at 2-1. Burn­ley per­formed well in de­feat against Liver­pool and were im­proved by the re­turn from in­jury of James Tarkowski and Rob­bie Brady. With mid­fielder Steven De­four close to mak­ing his come­back, Burn­ley could be about to turn the cor­ner and are fan­cied to beat a Brighton team miss­ing cen­tre-back Shane Duffy through sus­pen­sion and who have won just four of their 26 away games since re­turn­ing to the Premier League.

Boxer Kell Brook could set up a Bri­tish su­per­bout with Amir Khan if he beats Aus­tralian Michael Zer­afa tonight. Brook is a best­priced 1-33 to win the fight, but should be backed to win be­tween rounds one-four at 11-4.

The eyes of ev­ery racing fan will be on the Tin­gle Creek Chase at Sandown, where Cham­pion Chase win­ner Al­tior makes his sea­sonal re­turn. A class act, he has most to fear from Ir­ish chal­lenger Un De Sceaux.
