There are two games scheduled Sunday, with the second clash the more enticing. Manchester United put their recent resurgence on the line by traveling south to Wembley to take on Tottenham.
United have been impressive since replacing Jose Mourinho with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as manager. They have won four consecutive Premier League matches for the first time since April. But this is the big test.
Spurs defeated United 3-0 at Old Trafford earlier in the season, the most recent victory in a run of three consecutive Premier League wins.
Both teams have been scoring for fun, netting 40 between them in their last six matches in all competitions. But United’s defence still looks a concern, and we think Tottenham have the players to take advantage.
Harry Kane has scored in his last six matches in all competitions for Spurs, opening the scoring on three occasions. We think the 4/1 Skybet offers for him to score first today creates value.
The early afternoon kickoff today sees Bournemouth travel north to take on Everton.
Neither side is in any danger of relegation but they have both been in poor form of late. Everton have lost four of their last five Premier League games while Bournemouth have won only two from their last 13 in all competitions, losing 10.
Both sides have attacking talent but have not been defending very well, and this tends to suggest there will be goals today.
Three of the last six games between these two teams have ended 2-1. We’re going to side with the home team, and will take a punt Everton win by that score.
Tottenham/Man Utd: Kane to score first, 1 pt, at 4/1, SkyBet
Everton/Bournemouth: Everton to win 2-1, 1 pt, at 8/1, bet365
