Chelsea 8/1 (9.0) to beat Leicester

The defending champions clash with the champions-elect as Chelsea set out to put their last defeat by Tottenham behind them. Originally priced to win at a mere 8/13 (1.62) with Paddy Power to win, new players can take advantage of a whopping hike to 8/1 (9.0).

With Leicester looking a shadow of their former selves, they look in no position to build on their record of just one win in their last nine games versus the Blues. Indeed, Chelsea have won three of their last four visits to the Foxes, with their impressive form making the position of Antonio Conte's men as favourites all the more convincing.

The striker has scored in two of his last three outings against Leicester and been involved directly in 11 goals during Chelsea's last 11 games. That, combined with the fact Saturday's hosts will be missing Riyad Mahrez, Islam Slimani and Daniel Amartey - a trio who have contributed nine goals and six assists between them - to AFCON 2017 duty, and odds of 8/1 (9.0) on a Chelsea win appear even more cast-iron.

Arsenal 7/1 (8.0) to beat Swansea

Arsene Wenger's men will be keen to demonstrate their mettle when they visit lowly Swansea City. Paddy Power's overwhelming favourites at 4/9 (1.44) originally, Arsenal can now be backed at a generous 7/1 (8.0) to seal all three points at the Liberty Stadium and get back on the title track.

Saturday's visitors have never failed to score in their past five matches in Wales and that trend only looks set to continue with red-hot Olivier Giroud leading the line again. The Frenchman is celebrating a new lease of life and has netted 12 goals from his last 17 shots on target in all competitions, scoring in each of his last eight starts for Arsenal to rack up a total of 10 goals.

Backed up by Alexis Sanchez, who has scored or assisted 30 goals in his last 31 Premier League appearances, the Gunners seem a sure-fire bet to net against Swansea. Though they have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last seven Premier League matches, Arsenal's firepower to outscore any opponent makes backing them to win at 7/1 (8.0) an easy choice.

Arsenal, Chelsea and West Ham all to win at 20/1 (21.0)

While Chelsea and Arsenal are clear favourites in their respective games , things appear a little less straightforward for troubled West Ham ahead of their tie against Crystal Palace.

With Slaven Bilic's revelation that wantaway Dimitri Payet is refusing to play for the side, the Hammers lose their most potent attacking outlet. Desperate for a win to aid their chances of survival, though, and the hosts will give their all to secure a morale-boosting London derby win against their direct rivals for survival.

In Payet's place, West Ham will turn to derby specialist Manuel Lanzini, who has scored in all three of his Premier League games against the Eagles - meaning that the winger has netted six of his nine league goals in an all-London affair. Combine that with the hosts not daring to get things wrong in front of their fans here and backing Bilic's side as part of a treble with Chelsea and Arsenal at 20/1 (21.0) makes good sense.
