April 4th: Thursday’s Premier League Double – 3/1 Special, Betting Tips & Predictions

With Liverpool looking to extend on their Premier League title charge in midweek, we have a pair of heavyweight showdowns on the cards.

As Chelsea welcome Manchester United to Stamford Bridge on Thursday night, there are plenty of intriguing betting markets that are available.

So, for those of you looking to stick on a Thursday flutter, we have found a pair of eye-catching Premier League betting tips.

19:30 Liverpool vs Sheffield United

With Jurgen Kloop shockingly announcing his Anfield retirement plans back in January, Liverpool are desperate to make real history this season. With the German tactician looking to sign off his nine-year stay in the red half of Merseyside with a second Premier League crown, the mood in Klopp’s camp appears to be at a red-hot high.

Last seen marking their return from March’s international break with a 2-1 victory away at Brighton, the former Borussia Dortmund boss finds his squad firmly at the heart of a title scrap over the final couple of months.

Extending on their Europa League adventure last month and storming their way to a quarter-final ticket, Thursday’s hosts have also lost just a pair of their 29 top-flight appearances this season.

Gaining a reputation for their free-scoring performances in the final third, Klopp’s side have bagged 17 goals in their last five matchups across all competitions.

Rightfully tipped as a landslide contender on Thursday night, there is no doubt that fans around Liverpool will be smelling a golden opportunity at Anfield.

While Sheffield United might have clinched a Premier League return this season, the Blades have endured a public top-flight crisis this time around.

Breaking a string of unwanted records this year and sat rock-bottom of the table, Chris Wilder’s men are limping their way to an immediate Championship return in 2024.

Mustering just 15 points from any of their 29 Premier League appearances this season, Thursday’s guests also currently find themselves sat 10 points adrift of safety.

Losing all of their last six showdowns against Liverpool by an aggregate score of 13-1, Wilder’s side couldn’t have asked for a tougher challenge on Thursday night.

20:15 Chelsea vs Manchester United

Suffering a major Champions League nightmare back in December, it is no secret that Erik ten Hag has found a huge amount of scrutiny over his long-term future at Old Trafford. Lucky to have left Brentford with a 1-1 stalemate on their return from March’s international break last weekend, Manchester United have continued to struggle with their consistency this season.

Already accepting that another crucial top-four finish is off the table, the former Ajax boss has seen his inconsistent squad muster just a single win from any of their previous four Premier League appearances.

While United might hold an eye-catching record against Thursday’s hosts, ten Hag has seen his squad gain a reputation for their struggles on the road.

Including a 3-1 loss away at bitter local rivals Manchester City prior to March’s international break, the Reds have won just a trio of their last nine showdowns away from Old Trafford.

Although Chelsea might currently find themselves in the midst of a five-match domestic unbeaten run, Mauricio Pochettino’s side have endured another Premier League struggle at Stamford Bridge.

Forced to settle for an action-packed 2-2 stalemate against leading relegation scrappers Burnley, the former Tottenham boss will also have a real headache over his side’s glaring defensive issues.

If Chelsea are to make a heavyweight statement here and extend on their late European charge, then there is no doubt that the red-hot Cole Palmer will have a leading role to play in west London.

Bagging a brace against Burnley last week, the England international has notched 13 Premier League goals since arriving at Stamford Bridge over the summer.
