Benitez to draw a blank

Rafa Benitez

Newcastle United boss Rafa Benitez will be desperate to clinch victory over Liverpool, a team he managed between 2004 and 2010, but on this occasion the Reds should win out.

The Magpies’ three-match winning run came to an end at Brighton last Sunday and, with Joselu missing a hatful of presentable chances and appearing to lack confidence, it is difficult to see where Newcastle’s goals are going to come from.

Jonjo Shelvey impressed against the Seagulls though and could be worth a bet at 11/2 to score at any time at St James’ Park.

Liverpool have managed to concede 11 goals in their first six Premier League fixtures but Sunday’s match may be the perfect time for Jurgen Klopp’s side to tighten up at the back and they are available at 33/20 to keep a clean sheet on Tyneside.

Arsenal enjoyed a fine September, taking seven points from a possible nine in the Premier League – and keeping three clean sheets in the process – as well as progressing in the Carabao Cup and winning their first two Europa League group matches.

Arsene Wenger made nine changes to his starting line-up for the midweek victory against BATE Borisov and the Gunners should have too much quality for a Seagulls outfit that seem certain to head to the capital looking for a draw.

A routine 2-0 home win for Arsenal can be backed at 11/2 while Alexandre Lacazette is 3/1 to score the first goal in the match.

Despite coming from behind to beat Bournemouth last weekend, Everton continue to struggle and Burnley, who have already drawn at Liverpool and Spurs, as well as beating Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, can secure a draw at Goodison Park at odds of 11/4.
