Spurs can get at least a draw at Man Utd, but it looks ominous for West Ham at Liverpool


Manchester United are 23/20 with BetVictor to beat Tottenham for the 20th time at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Sunday and they are certainly due a change of fortune. charlie-mcCann_Aff

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has now scored four times in his last three league away games after his goal at Everton, and the Swedish superstar is 4/1 to open the scoring and 23/20 to add to his impressive tally of 71 goals in 70 home appearances since the start of the 2012-13 season.

Spurs talisman Harry Kane has not scored against United in five games and if they can again keep him quiet they ought to win what promises to be a fabulous game.

Spurs showed in the first half against Chelsea just what they are capable of, and I feel they can pick up at least a point.

United, lest we forget, have now won just one of their last eight games in the division and Leighton Baines’ late penalty last weekend means Jose Mourinho’s side have dropped seven badly-needed points from goals conceded in the last 10 minutes of league games this term – more than any other side in the division.

Hammers face tough task

West Ham did the league double over Liverpool last season for the first time since the 1963/64 season but they are unlikely to make it three in a row at Anfield on Sunday as the Reds look to bounce back from their defeat to Bournemouth last weekend.

One interesting statistic ahead of the game: Liverpool have played three times on a Sunday so far this season and all three games have seen seven goals scored.

So, Liverpool are 70/1 to win 6-1, 125/1 to win 7-0 and 60/1 to win 5-2! For the more optimistic Irons fans, West Ham are 200/1 to win 4-3!

Blues home banker

Chelsea are now our 6/5 favourites to win the Premier League after their brilliant 3-1 win against Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium last weekend.

City, who were our title favourites before the Blues’ victory, have been pushed out to 3/1.

West Brom are the visitors to Stamford Bridge this weekend and the Blues are unbeaten in their 10 league games against the Baggies at the Bridge. It is hard to see past another home win for Antonio Conte’s side.

Cesar Azpilicueta scored in both games between the sides last season and is 35/1 to score the opener and 10/1 with BetVictor to find the back of the Albion’s net again this time around.

We won’t get rich backing Chelsea at 1/4 but I fancy them to win by two clear goals, which is 2/1.

Diego Costa is 5/2 to score the opening goal and only 15/8 to end the season as the league’s top goalscorer.

Costa is currently tied at the top of the scoring charts on 11 with Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez (6/1) with Sergio Aguero, who starts a four-match domestic ban at the weekend, short enough at 3/1.

Arsenal can’t stumble

Arsenal are in to 16/1 for the Champions League ahead of Monday’s draw for the last 16 in Nyon, having secured top spot in the group stages with an emphatic win in Basel.

The Gunners entertain Stoke on Saturday before a trip to Goodison on Tuesday.

With Chelsea, seemingly, relentless at present, Arsenal cannot afford any slip-ups.

They are odd-ons favourites at 1/3 to beat Stoke at the Emirates but odds-against (21/20 with BetVictor) to beat Everton on the road on Tuesday.

The latter makes plenty of appeal, despite the fact that it is never easy under lights at Goodison, and a maximum six points are needed if Arsenal are to stick to the coat-tails of an impressive Chelsea outfit.

Bet on Benteke

Crystal Palace travel to Hull looking to build on a tremendous win over Southampton last weekend.

Christian Benteke’s first Premier League goals at Selhurst Park (on his birthday) against the Saints now means he has now scored as many goals in his last 12 league appearances as Hull have done in their last 12 games.

The Eagles are a big-looking 5/4 at BetVictor to win this one, with the Tigers, who really were toothless at the Riverside on Monday, 5/2 and the draw at 23/10.

Benteke is 9/2 to open the scoring and 11/8 to find the back of the Hull net with BetVictor, and the latter is my recommendation.
