Thursday Premier League Multi
Thursday's footballing action is best consumed with this $7.70 three-leg multi!
Bournemouth v Chelsea - 6:45am
If Chelsea want to finish in the top four, they can’t mess around: Gonzalo Higuain must be thrown straight into the mix.
The Argentine has endured a poor season so far, and his loan spell at AC Milan didn’t live up to expectations, although there can be little doubt about the sheer quality of the man – regardless of his troubles this campaign.
Chelsea have won all three of their matches at The Vitality Stadium in the Premier League, scoring eight in the process, which is a record Higuain would love to add to. Eden Hazard will likely return to his previous (and more effective) position out wide, giving the former-Real Madrid man plenty of freedom.
I’m backing him to open his account on the south coast.
Liverpool v Leicester - 7:00am
While Liverpool have dropped points just once at home – the goalless draw with City – Leicester have just been a bit…inconsistent. Five defeats and three wins in their last eight has made predicting Leicester results fairly tough, although if they defend like they did at Molineux during their 4-3 loss against Wolves, Liverpool will absolutely batter them.
Liverpool should and probably will win this, so I’m backing them to be winning at half-time and full-time. The Foxes have conceded 66% of their goals in the first half this season, while they have scored just two goals away from home during the first 45.
And finally, I have Roberto Firmino to score against Leicester.
The Brazilian, after a somewhat lean first half of the season by his high standards, has rediscovered his shooting boots - smashing in five goals in his last four Premier League matches.
His goal against Leicester back in September proved decisive as Liverpool navigated their way to victory, and Jurgen Klopp would absolutely love a repeat.
Firmino to score is my final selection for this multi.
