Its a ‘Super Sunday’ today with Paddy Power releasing the latest live odds on Swansea v Man Utd & Chelsea v Aston Villa as well as announcing a new free bets offer on the Sunday coupon.
There are two big games taking place in the Premier League on between four teams who all need the points for very different reasons.
First up, Manchester United make the journey to Wales to take on Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium.
The Swans will be delighted with their first half of the campaign, but have lost their last two so will not want to enter the busy Christmas period on the back of another defeat.

Its another Super Sunday of Premiership action kicking off with Swansea v Man Utd & Chelsea v Aston Villa, as Paddy Power celebrate with a new free bets offer worth £250/€250 to customers to spend on any game! Claim here!
Chris Hughton’s Norwich spoiled there party at the Liberty in their last game, winning 3-4, and if the Swans can score another three goals at home today they should get something out of the game, as their price of 4/1 for the home win looks just about right.
Michael Laudrup knows what a tough game this is sure to be, but with the way his men have played in recent months, they are sure to fancy their chances of taking something from this one, especially on home soil. Much will depend on Premiership top goalscorer Michu, who may start alongside Danny Graham or Luke Moore in a two pronged attack.
At 7/1 to find the net first, he could well attract plenty of attention in the first goalscorer markets considering United’s defensive frailties at the moment.
As for United, their lead at the top of the table could be cut to just three points by the time they kick-off, so only a win will do.
Sir Alex Ferguson’s men have won their last five, so come here in superb spirits. Although they know Swansea is a difficult place to come and take points, the Red Devils should have enough to come out on top as they also won last season’s game at the Liberty Stadium.
Clean sheets have been difficult to come by in recent weeks for Utd, having conceded six goals in their last three games so there may be a glimmer of hope for ‘The Jacks’.
Then, Chelsea take on Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge and with both sides scoring plenty of goals at the moment, this could be a cracker.
The Blues are playing their fourth game in just ten days, so Rafael Benitez could make a few changes from the side that won 5-1 at Leeds United in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday.
However, the Spaniard has to put a very strong side out to win this one as Villa have hit a bit of form in recent weeks.
Paul Lambert’s men come to Stamford Bridge on the back of a superb 3-1 win at Liverpool on Saturday, so are sure to be full of confidence. Christian Benteke & Andrea Weimann look to be forming a productive partnership up front for Villa, and their odds of 9/1 to secure all three points look more than a touch of value.
If there is an early goal in this one, then we could be in for a scintillating 90 minutes of attacking football.
Both games are sure to entertain and will be fitting ways to round off the weekend’s action in the Premier League.
