4 to Watch
Surely Arsene Wenger falling over was plenty enough for all you entertainment-seekers out there. No? Well how about another Premier League midweek offering. Get involved in these four beauties.
1) First up is the visit to the Emirates of Arsenal’s traditional rival down the years – Manchester United. The Champions have looked anything but under David Moyes and we fancy Arsenal, although at a best-priced 6/5 with PaddyPower, we’re not sure it’s big enough to tempt us in. Instead, we like under 2.5 goals at 2.1 on Betfair. Both sides are short on confidence, and Arsenal are on a run of nine successive home league matches with two goals or less.
2) Southampton find themselves in a pointless mini league of their own, with just Newcastle United for company. As such, their FA Cup game at Sunderland on Saturday is a bigger one than their trip to Hull. So we’ll back Steve Bruce’s side on the Double Chance at 8/15 with Bet365.
3) West Ham United look to be back in form, and they could well follow up an impressive victory at Villa Park with a home win over Norwich City. We’ll back the Hammers to come out on top at 11/10 with PaddyPower.
4) Our final selection is to take a punt on Crystal Palace to spring a surprise at Everton. The Lukaku-less Toffees have looked toothless in recent weeks, averaging just a goal a game in their last six Premier League outings. With Palace in such fine form, a lay of Everton at 1.52 on Betfair could pay dividends.
