Today, we look at some key games and provide our betting tips…
Brighton vs Liverpool
The Premier League champions were poor at Anfield on Wednesday night so Jurgen Klopp will be demanding a much-improved display on the south coast this weekend.
After drawing away to Manchester City last week, the Reds head into the game sitting level on points with Tottenham at the top of the league table with goal difference all that separates the two teams.
Spurs face a tough trip to Chelsea on Sunday so Liverpool will want to put the pressure on with a win at the Amex Stadium.
The draw can be backed at 16/5 but it’s difficult to see past an away win as Brighton are struggling at the wrong end of the table.
Liverpool to win 2-0 looks a solid bet at odds of 7/1 and if we add Sadio Mane to be the first goalscorer we get excellent odds of 27/1.
Southampton vs Man Utd
Manchester United head into the weekend action in good form having secured three consecutive victories including wins over Everton, West Brom and most recently a 4-1 win over Basaksehir in the Champions League.
That victory on Tuesday night put United in pole position to secure progress to the knockout stages of the Champions League but they’ll be fully focused on domestic matters this weekend.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have endured an inconsistent start to the new campaign and sit 10th in the Premier League table.
That won’t be easy though as the Saints are flying high up in fifth after winning five of their nine games so far this season so United can’t take anything for granted.
We think Southampton will give the Red Devils a stern test but expect United just to edge it. Manchester United are 19/20 with the bookmakers to win and a 2-1 away victory can be backed at odds of 7/1.
Bruno Fernandes continued his sensational form with another two goals in midweek and we can back the Portuguese attacker to open the scoring in a 2-1 Man Utd win at odds of 47/1 – which sounds like a terrific bet.
