Four to Watch – Super Sunday
This entry was posted on Sunday, January 22nd, 2012
For the neutral football fan, days in front of the television don’t get much better than Sunday. Manchester takes on London as four of the top five in the Premier League battle it out, with Arsenal looking to avenge their 8-2 mauling at Old Trafford, whilst Spurs will want to put right their August 5-1 home defeat to Manchester City.
The 1.30pm kick off sees Spurs face a Manchester City side yet to drop a point in the league at home, but who have lost their last two home games in all competitions; Manchester United in the FA Cup and Liverpool in the League Cup. It is over a year however since any visiting side scored more than once in a league game at the Etihad, (Wolves since you asked) and a Spurs clean sheet tomorrow seems unlikely. We recommend a bet of over 2.5 goals at 33/40 with Bet365.
We also reckon the 2-1 victory for City at 8/1 (also with Ladbrokes) is a fair price.
It isn’t often that Arsenal vs Manchester United plays second fiddle, but that is certainly the case on Sunday afternoon. Despite being far more successful than the Gunners over the past six seasons, United have only beaten Arsenal away once in a league match in that period and that is why we like Arsenal at the best priced 13/8 (Ladbrokes) to win the match.
We don’t think they’ll be many goals at the Emirates. None of Arsenal’s last six home matches have seen more than two goals, whilst United, apart from a rare blip at Newcastle where they conceded three, haven’t conceded more than a single goal in a Premier League away game since last April. With that in mind, we recommend under 2.5 goals at 23/20 with Bet365.
