United to bounce back and the Toffees to get a result: 5 bets to consider this weekend

We also think a draw in Liverpool v Man City is a good shout.

AFTER THE GLAMOUR of European football we return to the Premier League and as per usual, we’ve brought you five bets to take a look at before the action starts.

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

Liverpool and Man City to draw – 5/2

Both sides performed very poorly in Europe in midweek and the short turnaround should mean that neither squad are at 100%. You would have fancied Liverpool given their recent form but only having 48 hours to prepare makes the game a more even proposition.

Everton to win/draw away to Arsenal – 6/4

Everton haven’t hit the heights of last year but have only lost one of their last six league games – a 1-0 defeat away to Chelsea – and will be confident after two big wins in Europe. Arsenal’s league form has been good but their home loss to Monaco was such a dire performance that there could easily be some carry-over into this weekend.

Man United -1 vs Sunderland – evens

While LVG’s men have struggled against teams in the top half of the table they have done well against the bottom-feeders, especially at home. Burnley, QPR, Hull and Newcastle were all beaten by two or more at Old Trafford and after a disappointing loss to Swansea the United players will want to put things right in front of their fans.

Under 1.5 goals in West Brom v Southampton – 17/10

The visitors are struggling for confidence in attack at the moment, only scoring more than one goal once in their last five league games. West Brom have only scored more than two twice in their last nine league outings so there shouldn’t be many goals here.

Man United to win, Man City to win/draw, Swansea to win/draw away to Burnley and Stoke to win at home to Hull – 9/2

Happy fourfold, everyone!
