With just five games to go in the Premier League the Easter weekend will have a huge effect on both the title betting and the relegation betting.

At the top of the league Manchester United will have to beat Everton to fend off a late charge from Chelsea who host West Ham, and Tottenham Hotspur must beat West Brom if they want a top four spot.

Wolves will be hopeful of leapfrogging West Ham and Blackpool who host Newcastle, while Wigan will be quietly confident of upsetting Sunderland.

Match odds and stats

After consecutive setbacks Manchester United will be eager to get back to winning ways and considering Sir Alex Ferguson’s side have three clean sheets in their last four league games so we’re tipping them to win to nil at 6/4.

West Ham are awful away from home and at Stamford Bridge so we’re backing Didier Drogba (5 goals in 9 against the Hammers) to score first and Chelsea to win 4-1 at 33/1.

Unbeaten in their last 15 league games, Arsenal have won their last eight games against Bolton and they offer all the value this weekend at 8/11 to win.

Manchester City’s Monday night fixture with Blackburn will be the most dire fixture of the Easter weekend so get on under 1.5 goals at 12/5.

West Brom have scored and conceded in each of Roy Hodgson’s seven games in charge and after losing their unbeaten run to Chelsea last week, back both teams to score and Spurs to win at 9/4.

Unbelievably the last seven games between Liverpool and Birmingham have ended in draws and with the Blues having scored exactly one in each of their last five away games, we’re tipping the trend to continue with a 1-1 result available at 6/1.

Only one game at Blackpool’s Bloomfield Road has produced under 2.5 goals this season so backing over 2.5 goals is a banker at 4/7 and we’re tipping Newcastle to win at 7/5.

Villa will be without manager Gerard Houllier for their tie with Stoke and with just one win in secen matches against the Potters, we’re tipping Stoke to cause an upset at 7/2.

Wigan are the form side at the bottom of the table and having lost just one of their nine league games with Sunderland, the Lactics are a huge price at 5/2 to win at the Stadium Of Light.

This could yet be a huge game in the relegation fight but with Fulham’s penchant for drawing away games, we fancy this one to finish 0-0 at 8/1.

A £10 treble on Newcastle, Wigan and Stoke winning would return £378. New customers can sign up here to take advantage of a free football bet worth up to £30.
