The column was on fire in midweek with 15/2, 9/2 and 14/5 winners to take us roaring back into profit for the season. And we’ve got all the best betting angles covered on another busy weekend which sees Manchester United travel to Anfield to face in-form Liverpool.
Running total: +£20.79
Strange but true: Liverpool have not beaten Manchester United in the Premier League since 2014. However it would take a brave punter to back against them this weekend. Jurgen Klopp’s side are top of the table and will be full of confidence after securing their place in the Champions League knockouts with victory over Napoli in midweek. Mo Salah has emphatically answered those critics claiming he was a one-season wonder with a glut of crucial goals recently and he can help the Reds secure another vital three points. Liverpool’s front three have been excellent again this season but it’s their defensive improvements that might yet see them crowned champions for the first time since 1990. Jose Mourinho’s United have struggled against the top teams domestically so far, losing 3-0 to Tottenham and 3-1 to Manchester City and look right up against it on Merseyside.
Selection: £4 on Liverpool to win to nil at 7/4 with bet365.
The First Goal Flutter
He took a while to get going but Felipe Anderson now has six goals for West Ham and we fancy him at 15/2 when the Hammers face Fulham on Saturday evening. Fulham looked all at sea as they were crushed 4-1 at Old Trafford last weekend and worryingly have shipped 40 goals in just 16 matches so far this term.
Selection: £2 on Anderson to score first at 15/2 with bet365.

The Tasty Treble
Arsenal look a juicy price at 10/11 to beat a struggling Southampton on Sunday. Things could get worse before they get better for the Saints in the post-Mark Hughes era, and they are clearly a side devoid of confidence at the minute. As stated, Liverpool (4/7) should be too strong for a pretty average Manchester United side and Klopp’s men, who have kept three clean sheets in their last four Premier League matches, look bankers. Finally Wolves (evens) can continue their recent good form by sinking Bournemouth. The Molineux club have won their last two and can beat a Cherries side who’ve won just one of their last six matches. The treble is paying exactly 5/1 with bet365 and should go close.
Selection: £4 on the treble at 5/1 with bet365.
The Euro Wager
Juventus face Torino in the Derby della Mole this weekend, a fixture they have dominated in recent seasons. They won both matches against their city rivals without conceding last season and are heavy odds on shots to claim another win. Juventus have won 14 out of 15 matches so far in Serie A and might be worth backing at 11/2 to claim a 2-0 win at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino.
Selection: £2 on Juventus to win 2-0 at 11/2 with bet365.
The Wildcard Tip
Leroy Sane has been magnificent for Manchester City in recent weeks and the young German looks big at 6/1 to score first against Everton. Doubling Sane to score first against the Toffees with Mo Salah to bag first for Liverpool offers punters a first goal scorer double paying just shy of 30/1.
Selection: £1 on Sane – Salah first goalscorer double at 29.33/1 with bet365.
