Tuesday Premier League fixtures, odds and free bets

We’re just a few days away from the FA Cup final, although Liverpool have a date with Fulham before playing another west London side for a chance to claim a second piece of silverware

Meanwhile, Stoke City will entertain an in-form Everton side that scored four times against Fulham on Saturday thanks to the prolific Nikica Jelavic.

Liverpool v Fulham 19:45 BST
Kenny Dalglish will be pondering over team selection for Tuesday night’s game considering it takes place four days before Saturday’s FA Cup final against Chelsea which will ultimately decide whether or not it has been a successful season for Liverpool.

The Reds have been distinctly underwhelming in the Premier League for most of the campaign, sitting 8th in the table although they looked like title contenders when winning 3-0 at Norwich on Saturday which suggests they are in form ahead of the Wembley showdown.

Dalglish will want to keep the momentum going against the Cottagers and Liverpool are a best price 8/13 (Paddy Power free bets) to claim a three-point haul at Anfield, something that has not been commonplace throughout the season.

The Merseyside club have won just 5 of their 17 home games which is worse than Blackburn and QPR, explaining why they sit 24 points behind Manchester United. However, they might be playing Fulham at a good time and Luis Suarez will be a popular bet at 9/2 (Coral bookmaker) to score the first goal.

Perhaps Suarez will be given the night off, with the Cottagers licking their wounds after losing 4-0 at Goodison Park on Saturday, something that saw Martin Jol’s team suffer their 9th defeat on the road.

It has been a common trait for Fulham to be strong in front of their own supporters but suffer from travel sickness, although there is the possibility that they will catch Liverpool on the hop ahead of the cup final and the away win is a 21/4 chance (Bet Victor).

Stoke City v Everton 19:45 BST
At the halfway stage of the season, it appeared as though Stoke City were certain to finish above Everton, although the Toffees have been one of the form sides in the Premier League over the past few months and now sit in 7th place.

David Moyes’ side are characteristically strong as the campaign draws to a close, although the signing of Nikica Jelavic has proved to be an inspired one and the Croat has scored nine goals in his past seven matches which has helped the Merseyside club enjoy an excellent run.

Perhaps he will help Everton to victory at the Britannia Stadium, with the visitors available at 7/4 (Stan James) to claim three points against a Stoke side that are stationed in 14th place after a creditable 1-1 draw with Arsenal on Saturday which saw Peter Crouch once again find the net against one of the top Premier League sides.

The England hopeful has a habit of scoring against the better sides in the Premier League and he will want to continue this trend and persuade Roy Hodgson that he is worthy of a place in the Three Lions set-up this summer.

City are 7/4 (Boylesports free bets) to claim an eighth home win and it would mean the Potters rising several places in the table after Tony Pulis set his team a target of 50 points at the end of the season.

Perhaps this is a game which could easily finish all square considering that Stoke don’t lose too many at home and Everton certainly aren’t accustomed to defeat right now.
