No slip-ups at Anfield

Bet 1: Back Liverpool @ 3/4 - KO 16:30 BST

The Premier League title race comes into focus this afternoon as Liverpool take on Chelsea, just after Man City will have finished at Crystal Palace.

The Reds have been here before, and we all Gerrard's slip that enabled Demba Ba to score and crush their title dreams. Things will be different today though, as I really can't see Liverpool not winning this game.

Jurgen Klopp's side are back on-song at just the right time, and they come into the match on the back of six straight victories - and they have't been beaten in any competitions since the first Monday in January.

Chelsea have won four on the bounce, and they had the luxury of resting Eden Hazard at Slavia Prague on Thursday. He was required to come from the bench though, and they had to play 48 hours after Liverpool did - plus travel time.

I also have concerns about their away record in the Premier League - four defeats from their last six - and that includes 6-0 and 4-0 thumpings.

Goals galore in Serie A

Bet 2: Back Over 2.5 Goals in Frosinone v Inter @ 4/5 - KO 19:30 BST

It's all about goals in Italy this evening as Inter travel to Frosinone.

The hosts are second from bottom of Serie A, but they are mounting a bit of a late fightback. They are still seven points adrift of safety, but they have won their last two.

Inter meanwhile are trying to secure their place in next season's Champions League, as the sit in third place - two points ahead of Milan and a further one clear of Roma.

As far as the goals go, four of Frosinone's last six at home have seen this selection land, while the same can be said for Inter's last four on the road. Given the need of both clubs for the points, I expect an attacking affair.

Lille to hold form against PSG

Bet 3: Back Lille & Draw @ 1/1 - KO 20:00 BST

It's a clash of the top two in France tonight, where anything but a defeat for PSG will see them crowned as champions

Lille have had an excellent campaign and they look booked for second as they are five points clear of their nearest pursuers - and they have a game in hand.

Playing against PSG won't be easy, but they have only lost twice at home this term, and they were only narrowly beaten in the reverse fixture.

The champions elect are head and shoulders the best team in France, but they are still without Cavani and Neymar, and they couldn't beat Strasbourg at home last weekend. A point would secure them the title, and I'm sure they would be satisfied with that - as would we.
