What do you get if you combine a week of European action and a competitive television schedule? The answer: four Premier League games on a Sunday.
The first is a London derby as Crystal Palace head north to take on Tottenham at Wembley. Spurs have rightly been in the headlines for beating Real Madrid 3-1 on Wednesday and will expect to add to that victory against the top flight’s bottom club.
Roy Hodgson will have been working hard on his side’s organisation but even the most positive Palace fan will expect defeat so perhaps eye the 23/20 on offer for the home win to zero.
Then at 14:15, Manchester City and Arsenal meet in a game that has traditionally been tough to call.
City shone at times in beating Napoli 4-2 in the week, while the much-changed Gunners drew 0-0 with Red Star Belgrade. It’s again hard to look past the home win but at a short price, maybe Sergio Aguero’s 14/5 to score first could appeal.
There are then two offerings at 16:30, including Everton against Watford. The managerless Toffees fielded a weakened team in losing 3-0 to Lyon in Europe and caretaker David Unsworth was probably saving his best for this game.
Watford have lost their last two but often play better away from home and with so much going on at Goodison, the 51/20 for a Hornets win may not be so foolish.
Finally and saving – what on paper at least – is the best till last. Chelsea against Manchester United is a star-studded affair but will probably be a boring one.
The pressure is bang on Antonio Conte and with Jose Mourinho set to park the bus on his latest return to Stamford Bridge, do not be afraid to back the away win at 21/10.
