WE’VE a real Super Sunday on offer this weekend.
There’s four of the big six in action on a packed Premier League schedule – and we’ve found some value for Manchester United’s trip to East London, Arsenal’s clash with Villa and the big one at Stamford Bridge between Chelsea and Liverpool.
West Ham vs Man Utd – Sunday, 2pm
IT was spot on for Ole and his men last week on home soil.
Harry Maguire masterminded a clean-sheet against his former employers to lift the pressure on his boss – and leave our five-fold losing by just a single leg in the process.
United were given yet another penalty – their FOURTH in just five Premier League games – with Marcus Rashford this time making no mistake from 12 yards.
They head to West Ham this weekend and the 10/3 available on another spot-kick is far too big to turn down.
Just don’t let Pogba take it.
The Hammers spent wisely over the summer and things look like they’re starting to click.
They did everything but score against Villa on Monday night and might have gone on to get the winner if Mike Dean hadn’t decided to make his mark on the game and needlessly brandish his cards.
West Ham memorably dispatched United 3-1 here less then a year ago and have only lost once in their last four meetings between the sides in East London.
Both of United’s away games so far this season have ended in stalemate – and we fancy their travel sickness to strike again in the capital.
A draw is a decent price at 13/5, whilst another 1-1 on the road for Ole is a tempter at a juicy 6/1.
Stalemate at the London Stadium: 13/5
Game to finish 1-1: 6/1
Man Utd to be awarded a penalty: 10/3
Victory for United against Leicester eased the pressure on manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
Arsenal vs Aston Villa – Sunday, 4.30pm
VILLA might as well give the Gunners a two-goal head start here.
It’ll probably give them more of a chance.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was fuming after his brace was cancelled out by a second-half horror show at Watford – and sulked by staying out on the time until 3am the following morning.
One thing that is firing for the Gunners is their forward line – and Auba is odds on to net again in this one.
If you’re looking for a beefy single for the day, that’s where you should head.
Weekend five-fold acca
Tottenham to beat Leicester – 13/10
Newcastle vs Brighton over 1.5 goals – 4/9
West Ham and Man Utd to draw – 13/5
Arsenal vs Aston Villa over 3.5 goals – 11/10
Chelsea vs Liverpool both teams to score – 1/2
£10 returns £376 at Ladbrokes
He’s 5/2 to score first and that’s well worth a bet – but this is an Arsenal side that you can’t back with confidence to win, no matter the opponent.
They could easily win this 4-0 or slip to a 2-3 defeat, you just can’t trust the defence to keep it tight when it matters most.
As such, the goals market is where you need to play – just as we tipped last week when recommending over 3.5 goals at Vicarage Road in our acca.
Cheers for that one, Mr Luiz.
We’re confident that a return to the Emirates won’t stop the goals from flowing, so back the same again.
But as a covering bet Gunners fans, the 16/1 on your side to blow yet another two-goal lead is well worth a quid.
It’ll buy a few pints to drown the sorrows at least. You might even see an exasperated Aubameyang at the bar…
Aubameyang to score first: – 13/5
Over 3.5 goals at the Emirates: 21/20
Arsenal to blow another two-goal lead: 12/1
Chelsea vs Liverpool – Sunday, 4.30pm
YOU never win anything with kids.
Someone should tell Super Frank.
The new Blues boss might have been forced to play the youth products due to the club’s transfer ban, but they’re doing him proud right now.
Who would have guessed that Chelsea‘s seemingly endless production line of talent would produce some absolute gems? Funny that.
Tammy Abraham has always looked a natural goalscorer on his various loan moves and has made the step up to the top-flight look effortless.
We fancy him to continuing his current scoring streak – especially as Liverpool’s goalkeeper situation continues to be a worry.
It’s EIGHT years since the Reds kept a clean-sheet here in the Premier League, when Pepe Reina and Co fought their way to a 1-0 victory in 2011.
Liverpool are five from five and looking ominously good. Really, really good.
They’ve won two of their last four visits to this ground and nowhere seems to hold any fear for Jurgen Klopp’s heavy metal side.
On paper, this one screams goals. And lots of them.
In their ten Premier League games so far this term, there’s been 39 goals involving these sides. At nearly four per match, we’re all set up for another goal-fest.
Both sides to net is our banker of the day at 1/2 – whilst Ladbrokes special on Abraham to score and Roberto Firmino to provide an assist looks a snip at 12/1.
The Brazilian was outrageous off the bench against Newcastle, setting up Mo Salah with a ridiculous back-heel.
The way both those players are performing at the moment, you gobble up that price.
If you’re chasing a bit of value, Liverpool to win and Chelsea to score is 11/5 – that’s £32 back from a tenner. Overpriced.
Both teams to score at the Bridge: 1/2
Liverpool to win and Chelsea to score: 11/5
Abraham to score and Firmino to assist (double): 12/1
