AFTER THE GLAMOUR of the Champions League we are back to the regular weekend grind of the Premier League. To prepare you for the weekend’s games, we have five bets for you to consider before you clock off for the evening.

As always, these bets are absolutely guaranteed to come through provided a large number of variables fall into place.

Mario Balotelli to score anytime in Man United vs Liverpool – 5/2

Wasn’t this the game that Balotelli was bought for? He has been brutal in front of goal all season and is apparently touch-and-go to feature this weekend, but it would be just like Balotelli to stick it to his critics in such a big game. He was similarly maligned at Man City before his famous ‘why always me?’ display at Old Trafford a couple of years back.

Aston Villa to win/draw away to West Brom  - 4/6

Villa haven’t been overwhelming teams recently, but they have quietly been going on a very good run – winning their last two and unbeaten in their previous five. Conversely, West Brom haven’t won in their last five games. Villa have only conceded three goals during their good run, and we fancy them to get something tomorrow.

Man City -1 away to Leicester – 6/5

Leicester haven’t won a game since 21 September while Man City will be brimming with confidence after their impressive away win in Roma on Wednesday night. After Chelsea’s slip-up last weekend, the champions have Mourinho’s men in their sights, and they aren’t likely to pass up a chance at an easy three points.

Southampton under 1.5 goals away to Burnley – 20/23

Besides being in a very poor run of form, Southampton have only scored more than one goal once in their last seven league games. Likewise, Burnley are in a bit of a rut too, but haven’t conceded more than one goal in their last three home league games.

Man City to win, Chelsea to win at home to Hull, Arsenal to win at home to Newcastle and West Ham to win/draw away to Sunderland – 5/2

Happy fourfold, everybody!
