Premier League & FA Cup Preview : 17th - 18th March
The FA Cup enters the quarter-finals stage this weekend with tournament favourites Man Utd, Chelsea and Spurs all separated in the draw. In the Premier League, Liverpool have the chance to move above Tottenham if they avoid defeat at home to Watford. Check below for Dafabet's latest match odds on both competitions (prices 23:00 Thursday 15th March, subject to change)
In the Premier League, Liverpool host Watford in the weekend's only live TV game with Klopp's side coming off defeat to Man Utd last Saturday. Javi Gracia has helped push the Hornets clear of the relegation battle - currently sitting 10th in the league and all but safe. Although the odds suggest an easy Liverpool win, Watford remain a danger to the top sides as they demonstrated when beating Chelsea at the start of February. Amongst Saturday's other Premier League matches, West Brom position in the league is looking grim and Bournemouth away looks a must win for the Baggies while Huddersfield v Crystal Palace and Stoke v Everton look tight affairs.
The FA Cup quarter-finals open with Spurs visit to Swansea at 12:15 on Saturday. Carlos Carvalhal's miraculous transformation of the Swans has seen them pull clear of the Premier League relegation zone and despite Spurs being odds-on away from home, the Welsh side must have claims at 7-1. Man Utd host Brighton in a rare Saturday evening game (19:45) with the FA Cup Mourinho's one remaining chance of silverware after being dumped out of the Champions League midweek by Sevilla.
Sunday see's 2013 FA Cup holders Wigan hosting Southampton with Mark Hughes taking charge of his first game with the Saints. Despite the gulf between League One Wigan and Premier League Southampton, the odds-against (23-20) on the south-coast side reflects a question mark over whether Hughes will prioritise the competition over Premier League survival. The final game of the quarter-finals is Leicester at home to a stuttering Chelsea side with Antonio Conte hoping for a reaction after the midweek Champions League elimination to Barcelona.
