Saturday Select includes some choice selections that are worth considering for this Saturday’s fixtures however you are looking to bet on the games this weekend. With Premier League to Conference selections, check out which fixtures are on the hitlist this time around.
Chelsea v West Bromwich Albion
Chelsea are looking at their imperious best this season but Mourinho will again be keen to get his squad back together from the international break and regain that all important momentum as the blues look to tighten their stranglehold on the top spot and crank up the pressure on the chasers. Diego Costa has ten goals in nine appearances and he has shaken off his tight hamstring. Now that he is back to full fitness he will be a big danger. They have won all of their games at Stamford Bridge so far this season conceding just three goals in the process.
West Brom have just one win in their last six games in all competitions and are heavily reliant on Saido Berahino as there source of goals. He has contributed 54% of their total goals scored but the likes of Terry and Cahill will be very alive to his threat in this match and they may need inspiration to come from elsewhere on the pitch.
Blackburn v Leeds
Blackburn are unbeaten in their last seven games and have only been beaten once at Ewood Park back in September. They do have a few injuries to contend with though but still have enough amongst their ranks to be able to get a decent result.
Leeds have only won once in nine away games in all competitions this season. They won there last match which ended a nine game winless run but consistency is not a feature in Leeds United season whether in the board room or on the footbal pitch and they face another tough away trip.
MK Dons v Port Vale
MK Dons have only lost one of their seven home league matches played so far this campaign whilst Port Vale have only picked up two victories in eight on the road. The two clashed in their last fixture in the FA Cup where MK Dons ran out 4-3 winners so they will know they can outscore their opponents which may give them the edge again.
Mansfield v Plymouth
Mansfield are in woeful form; the Stags have not won in their last nine games in all competitions and could only manage a draw in the FA Cup against non league Concord Rangers in their most recent match. They have just parted company with manager Paul Cox so will go into the game managerless which may effect the players preparation and mindset.
Plymouth on the other hand have been in great form with five wins and two draws in their last seven. They have the best defensive record in the division bar none boasting 10 clean sheets in 17 fixtures and face one of the worst attacks; Mansfield have only scored 14 goals in 17 games.
Exeter v Shrewsbury
Shrewsbury Town are top of the League Two form table after having won six consecutive league games. They look one of the strongest teams in the division without a doubt this season and will want all three points when they travel to the Grecians who will be missing the aerial threat of captain Scot Bennett.
