Wednesday night provides another feast of footballing action in the Premier League with four games to get stuck into, including a London derby between West Ham and Chelsea.

Before that clash at the London Stadium, there are three games at 18:00 and one of those takes place at the Vitality Stadium, where relegation-threatened Bournemouth go up against Newcastle United (Bournemouth 29/20, Draw 21/10, Newcastle 9/4 – Match Betting).

The Cherries have lost both their matches since the restart, failing to score and conceding three times, and they occupy 18th spot heading into the fixture, only inside the bottom three on goal difference.

As for Newcastle, they are just one point away from reaching that magical 40 mark but Steve Bruce has confirmed he will need to utilise his squad due to the hectic fixture schedule.

Over at the Emirates, Arsenal take on Norwich City at 18:00 as both sides eye three points for very different reasons. The Gunners are still chasing a European finish while the Canaries, sitting bottom of the table and six points from safety, are desperately fighting for their top-flight status.

Mikel Arteta’s men (16/1 – Top 6 Finish) are nine points adrift of Manchester United in fifth but they should have enough to overcome a Norwich side that have lost their last four games in all competitions and look to be heading straight back down.

Also at 18:00, Everton welcome Leicester City to Goodison Park and the Toffees will need to come away with the win to stand any chance of recording a top-six finish (Everton – 33/1) this season.

Carlo Ancelotti’s men are 12th heading into the contest, 11 points adrift of the Red Devils in fifth, and they will be hoping to take advantage of a Leicester side that hasn’t won in their last three outings.

The final game of the evening takes place at the London Stadium as West Ham, who are only outside of the relegation zone on goal difference, play host to an in-form Chelsea in a big London derby.

The Hammers have lost their last three matches, failing to score in any of those, and they are expected to be without Sebastien Haller once again due to injury.

As for the fourth-placed Blues, they are on a five-game winning run across all competitions but there is a degree of pressure on them this evening, due to the fact United cut the gap to two points on Tuesday night.

West Ham are 5/1 to claim the spoils, a draw is priced at 10/3 while Chelsea are the 4/7 favourites.
