London's calling as Leicester visit Spurs with both teams battling for a top-four spot.

Jamie Vardy scores for Leicester

Watford will get the chance to move a step closer to safety this week when they take on fellow strugglers West Ham United on Friday night.

The two sides are level on 34 points each, and a third successive win for the Hornets could all but secure their safety.

Victories over Norwich City and Newcastle United have given Nigel Pearson’s men a massive confidence boost, and they can make their lives easier with a win at the London Stadium this week.

West Ham have also won two of their last five games to give themselves a fighting chance, and they have also won three of their last four in the league against Watford.

However, 60 per cent of Watford’s Premier League wins have come away from home, and they are 13/5* to grab all three points this week.

European Football in Burnley’s Sights

With two games remaining, Burnley still have the chance to finish in the top seven, which would earn them a spot in the Europa League.

Sean Dyche’s side are unbeaten in six games in the league, and they travel to Norwich this Saturday. Burnley have not played at Carrow Road in the top flight since 1976, but with Norwich already relegated they should have enough in the tank to win at odds of 5/4.

On Sunday, there are only two games to look forward to, with the FA Cup fixtures putting a spanner in the Premier League works.

Southampton looked destined for the relegation places before Christmas, but Ralph Hasenhuttl has worked his magic to steer his team into mid-table.

They make the short trip to Bournemouth, who need to win to maintain their hopes of avoiding the drop.

The Cherries are looking to record their first-ever league double over Southampton, in what is the 13th different campaign in which they have met.

However, four of the last six meetings have ended in draws, and the same outcome is 27/10.

All Eyes on Europe in London

Sunday’s other fixture sees Tottenham welcome Leicester City to north London, with both sides harbouring European ambitions.

Leicester’s win over Sheffield United has given them fresh belief they can finish in the top four, while Tottenham’s victory over Newcastle United means they can still qualify for the Europa League.

While Tottenham have been criticised for their negative style under Jose Mourinho, there have been 28 goals scored in the last six league meetings between the pair and over 3.5 goals is 5/2.

Leicester ace Jamie Vardy currently leads the way in the race for the Golden Boot, with 23 goals to his name.

He has a three-goal lead over Danny Ings, and he will be looking for more goals to ensure he claims the trophy.

With that in mind, it is worth considering Vardy to score anytime at odds of 13/10, particularly as he has also rediscovered his form in front of goal, having scored four in his last five..
