Some big games this weekend, none more so than Burnley's home clash with Cardiff City - a win for the Clarets at 10/11 will virtually see them safe for another season.

There is nothing in Cardiff's away form to suggest they are a bet - they have been desperately unlucky in recent weeks, but Burnley have the experience to see them through.

Peter Crouch is out for the season which is a blow as he has had some impact in the later stages of the games he has played, but in Ashley Ward and Chris Wood, Burnley have proven scorers which is what Cardiff lack.

Dyche has said he will wait before deciding whether to offer the liekable Crouch another year, and survival may be key to that decison. In the Prem, they can afford the luxury of a Crouch on the bench.

Elsehwere, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be under real pressure only half a dozen games in to his permenant reign if Man United lose to West Ham.

United have lost four of their last six in all competitions and this is must win. United have won four and drawn two of the last six renewals and a home win looks certain to us. United will not be as cautious line up wise as they were against Barcelona on Tuesday.

Those looking for a shock on the coupon could do worse than back Southampton to beat Wolves. Wolves will find it tough mentally recovering from the semi-final defeat to Watford last Sunday and Southampton are the sort of team to stiffle Wolves attacking counters.

Tottenham have an easy task at home to Huddersfield and 3-0 and 4-1 correct scores look a punt.
