Leeds set for crunch clash

Jesse Marsch

There are no less than six Premier League games taking place on Sunday, five at 14:00 and one at 16:30, and there will be huge attention on the contest at Elland Road between Leeds United (11/8 – Relegation) and Norwich City.

Leeds made the decision to sack Argentine tactician Marcelo Bielsa in the wake of the 4-0 loss to Tottenham at the end of February and bring in former RB Leipzig boss Jesse Marsch (pictured) as his replacement.

However, the change in manager is yet to have the desired effect, with the Whites losing 1-0 to Leicester City before shipping three goals and failing to score again in the 3-0 defeat to Aston Villa last time out.

It’s now six defeats in a row for the West Yorkshire outfit, a run of results which leaves the club two places and two points above the drop zone, and Sunday’s home clash against rock-bottom Norwich couldn’t come at a more crucial time.

The Canaries, also on a six-game losing streak across all competitions, are five points from safety but a victory at Elland Road would put them right back in the mix to retain their top-flight status.

Leeds are 8/13 to claim a crucial three points, while the draw is priced at 16/5 and Norwich are 9/2 to triumph.

Also at 14:00, relegation-threatened Everton, 17th in the standings and just a point above the relegation zone, welcome top-four chasing Wolverhampton Wanderers to Goodison Park (Everton 11/8, Draw 23/10, Wolves 9/4 – Match Betting).

Over at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea will be looking to forget about the issues surrounding owner Roman Abramovich when they play host to a Newcastle United looking to extend their unbeaten league run to 10 matches.

The Blues are 2/5 favourites to claim all three points, while the draw is priced at 4/1 and the Magpies, who are set to be without Joelinton and Allan Saint-Maximin for the second straight game, are 15/2 to triumph.

In Sunday’s two other games kicking off at 14:00, Southampton face relegation-threatened Watford at St Mary’s and top-four chasing West Ham United welcome Aston Villa to the London Stadium.

The final match of the day, getting underway at 16:30, will see Arsenal and Leicester City do battle at the Emirates (Arsenal 8/15, Draw 7/2, Leicester 11/2 – Match Betting).

The Gunners, sitting in fifth place but with games in hand on those around them, will leapfrog Manchester United into fourth with a win.
