Whilst it would appear Liverpool’s trip to Old Trafford focuses on a handshake, there will be a pretty big football match afterwards too. Goals should be on the agenda too, with nine of United’s last ten games involving three goals or more, and this fixture has also seen over 2.5 scored in the last four seasons. Back it at Evens with Bet365. Incredibly, there hasn’t been a draw at Old Trafford in this evenly-matched fixture since the 1999/2000 season. United have won six of the last seven however, and we think they’re a good bet to make it seven out of eight. At 17/20 with Bet365, it’s a fair enough price.
Everton’s home Premier League form has suffered from a lack of goals; in fact they’ve scored just seven in their last nine and exactly one in each of the last five. Chelsea themselves have only scored five across their last five league away games so the one bet for us in this game has to be under 2.5 goals at 3/4 with Bet365. In fact we quite like under 1.5 goals at 3.4 on Betfair.
Harry Redknapp started the week on charges of evading tax and has ended it pretending he wishes to evade the England job. Spurs fans will no doubt give him a teriffic reception this weekend and we expect them to have a victory to applaud as well. However, Newcastle have only failed to score in one Premier League away game this season, so back both teams to score at 10/11 with Ladbrokes. The straight Spurs victory is 1/2 with Ladbrokes and we also like 3-1 Spurs at 13.0 on Betfair.
Aston Villa host Manchester City in the televised match on Sunday, hoping to repeat last season’s 1-0 smash n grab. Yet McLeish hasn’t masterminded a home win for over three months, and we fancy City to win by 3-0, available at 17.5 in Betfair.
