Form means everything at this stage in the season, the gap for relegation is about to get wider meanwhile the Champions League spots look open to all parties in the top six. It is turning out to be an exhilarating season which leaves betting opportunities endless.
One bet which stood out at Ladbrokes is their special on Manchester United. They have The Reds as 12/1 to win their next five matches in the Premier League and considering they are already on a seven-match streak, it looks a possibility. So, who are their next five opponents, Burnley (H), Leicester (A), Fulham (A), Liverpool (H), Crystal Palace (A).
Except for the match against league leaders Liverpool, you would take this wager with open arms. Burnley is struggling in the league and play Man City in the FA Cup, three days before they meet United midweek. Leicester is on a three-game losing streak to Newport, Southampton and Watford so they pose little threat to the bet at this moment. Fulham is 19th in the league and unless there is a huge upset ahead for Ole Gunnar Solsjgaer, his side should brush them past at Craven Cottage. Which brings us to the Liverpool showdown at Old Trafford, one of the finest fixtures in the sport but who will come out on top?
Liverpool hasn’t won at Old Trafford since 2014 and in the previous encounters, United just about edge their rivals. This won’t mean anything come game day and you’ll have to hope Solsjagaer can keep his 100% win ratio. If United are victorious over Klopp’s men, they will travel to Selhurst Park for the final leg of the bet. At 12/1 it is worth the risk of the potential loss to Liverpool, that doesn’t mean you can’t cash out before the fixture if it brings real concern.

Chelsea has made their second signing this window in Gonzalo Higuain who’s on loan from Juventus until the end of the season. The Argentinian is a goal-machine and has been a stand-out player in Serie A for a matter of years. He has a total of 290 goals in his professional career and most managers in Europe would love to have his services. Fortunately for Chelsea boss, Maurizio Sarri he now has Higuain in his squad during a tough time for the club. Chelsea has scored the least amount of goals in the top 6 but with Higuain, this could potentially change.
SkyBet is offering Higuain to reach 10 goals+ at 8/1 which is quite brave from them. Everyone is collectively criticising Higuain at the moment and many feel as if he has passed it. His time at AC Milan may suggest this, but he was unhappy in that six-month spell. His place at Juve was stolen by Ronaldo and the players at Milan are no way near up to the standards in Turin. However, he still managed to score 8 times in 22 appearances for AC Milan. Playing alongside Willian, Hazard and Kante will provide Higuain with the service he needs to fuel his goal tally. On his day, he is a colossus force and on paper this a good buy from Chelsea.
