Last weekend saw the Premier League title run in confirmed as a two horse race as Spurs fell to defeat at home to the resurgent Manchester United, with the salt in the wound being an injury to Harry Kane and the awaiting departure lounge for Son Heung-min. This did bring Manchester United into the top four race though, but none of that really matters where we’re heading. The corners and cards markets await, and they don’t care what the Premier League table looks like.

Wolves vs Leicester
These two sides are battling it out in a widely contested mid-table war, with the winner of that war potentially claiming Europa League football next season. Saturday’s result could prove crucial at the end of the season, and there could be the potential for some red mists to descend. The hosts have picked up at least two cards in four of their seven home games against bottom 14 clubs this season, averaging 2 cards per game in these matches. Meanwhile, Leicester have seen their opponents pick up at least two cards in six of their eight trips away to bottom 14 clubs, so we like the look of Wolves Over 1.5 Team Cards here at 1/1.

Watford vs Burnley
Burnley have finally started to look like the team that romped to Europa League qualification last season, but their corner game is well off the mark. Not only have they conceded more corners than any other Premier League side, but they aren’t too adept at winning them at the other end either. They have won four or more corners in just three of their eight away games against teams outside the Big Six, and they’re facing a Watford side who have limited their bottom 14 opponents to under four corners in four of their six home matches. With the Clarets averaging a meagre 2.75 corners per game in these away days, we’re backing Burnley Under 3.5 Team Corners at 5/6.

Bournemouth vs West Ham
West Ham may have toned down their foul play in recent weeks, but they’re not exactly rule abiding saints down at the London Stadium. They have been carded at least twice in five of their eight away games against bottom 14 clubs this season, averaging 2.38 cards per game in these matches. They’re facing a Bournemouth side who love to get their opponents in trouble too, with seven of their eight home games against teams outside the Big Six seeing the visitors leave with more than one caution to their names. In fact, the Cherries have seen their opponents carded a Premier League high 63 times this season, so even odds of 4/7 for West Ham Over 1.5 Team Cards looks a good value offering.

Newcastle vs Cardiff
Given both teams’ positions at the moment, Cardiff’s trip to the out of sorts Newcastle on Saturday could prove absolutely crucial in the looming relegation battle. However, while Newcastle do struggle for points at home, the corners flow quite freely at St James’ Park. The Magpies have won at least six corners in five of their seven home games against bottom 14 teams, averaging 6.71 corners per game in these fixtures. They’re hosting a Cardiff side who have conceded at least six corners in all but one of their trips away to fellow bottom 14 teams, and with their average corner concession rate sitting at 8.29 per game we think Newcastle Over 5.5 Team Corners at 8/13 is a solid option.
Not only are Rafa Benitez’ side capable at winning set pieces, but they also manage to keep a remarkably cool head considering the calamitous position they are in. They have been carded twice or more in only three of their seven home games against teams outside the Big Six, and with Cardiff seeing their bottom 14 hosts carded just three times in total this season we’re not expecting Newcastle to get into much trouble with the referee. None of The Bluebirds seven trips away to these clubs have seen their opponents carded more than once, so backing Newcastle Under 1.5 Team Cards at 4/6 looks a good choice.

Southampton vs Everton
Ralph Hassenhuttl continues to try and make something of this Southampton team on Saturday, but with Everton involved as well the referee isn’t going to be looking forward to this one. The ironically nicknamed Saints have seen at least four cards brandished in seven of their 10 home league games this season, with an average of 4.3 cards being shown per game. Everton manage to better that tally though, with their trips away to fellow bottom 14 teams averaging 5 corners per game, making odds of 11/10 for Over 3.5 Cards look great value for money.

Arsenal vs Chelsea
The most eye catching match of the weekend is most certainly Chelsea’s short trip across London to face Arsenal at the Emirates, and they will be hoping to take advantage of the abundance of corners the Gunners tend to give away. Arsenal have conceded five or more corners in all but one of their six matches against fellow Big Six sides this season, including all three of their home matches. They have conceded an average of 7.33 corners per game in these home outings, and with Chelsea averaging 5.2 corners per game away from home this season we think backing Chelsea Over 4.5 Team Corners at 8/13 is a great bet.

Fulham vs Tottenham Hotspur
Tottenham enter this game without their two most prolific attackers this season, with Son Heung-min away on international duty and Harry Kane ruled out until March with an injury. This, along with Claudio Ranieri’s drastic improvement to this Fulham side, might make attacking opportunities a bit harder to come by on Sunday.
Even at the best of times Spurs aren’t making their way to the corner flag too often either. Only half of their 10 trips away to teams outside the Big Six have seen nine or more corners won, and while six of Fulham’s 10 home outings have their only hosting of a Big Six side saw a grand total of just six corners. Fulham and Tottenham are two of just six teams in the Premier League who’s games have averaged fewer than 10 corners this season, so generous odds of 13/8 for Under 9 Corners looks a very attractive bet.
