These fixtures will be broadcast live in the UK across Viaplay and TNT Sports.

Live Football on Thursday, April 4

La Liga

Granada (21/10) vs Valencia (6/4) - Draw (2/1) (19:00 - Viaplay Sports 2)

Granada are enduring a miserable campaign, winning just twice so far this season and they find themselves in 19th place in the standings, 14 points from safety. Valencia, meanwhile, have won just one of their last six outings, but will sense a big opportunity to get back to winning ways here.

The hosts were beaten 1-0 by Cadiz on Friday under new head coach Jose Ramon Sandoval, while Valencia shared the spoils with Mallorca in a goalless stalemate a day later.

Both sides struggle to win games, so backing the draw at 2/1 looks to be decent value, and they both lack firepower in front of goal, scoring just 30 and 32 times this season respectively, with under 2.5 goals being 7/4 to land.

Premier League

Liverpool (1/14) vs Sheffield United (25/1) - Draw (11/1) (19:30 - TNT Sports 2)

Title-chasing Liverpool will be looking to respond to both Arsenal and Manchester City winning on Wednesday evening, when they host Sheffield United at Anfield on Thursday. The Reds are looking to do the double over the Blades after winning 2-0 at Bramall Lane in December, and they're massive favourites to do so at 1/14implying they have a 93.3% chance of claiming the three points.

Sheffield United's win against Luton on February 10 marks their only victory in their last 10 matches across all competitions, and Liverpool's record at Anfield is incredibly strong.

The Blades drew 3-3 with Fulham in their last outing, and have shipped 11 goals in their past three matches so another high-scoring affair could be on the cards at Anfield. Over 3.5 total goals is available at 1/2, while Liverpool are 4/5 to win to nil.

Chelsea (5/6) vs Manchester United (13/5) - Draw (16/5) (20:15 - TNT Sports 1)

Both Chelsea and Manchester United come into this clash off the back of disappointing draws in the capital over the weekend, with the Blues held 2-2 at home by struggling, 10-man Burnley before United were perhaps fortunate to escape Brentford with a point. These are two sides with European aspirations but they're in danger of falling short as they currently sit sixth and 12th in the table, respectively.

Chelsea have scored at least two goals in their past four home encounters across all competitions, so backing over 1.5 home goals at 1/2 could be the way to go,

The Blues will be seeking revenge after United won the reverse fixture 2-1 back in December thanks to a brace from Scott McTominay, while United are bidding to complete only a second Premier League double over Chelsea - the first coming in 2019/20. A repeat of another 2-1 United win can be backed at 12/1, while both teams to score is currently priced up at 4/11.
