Aston Villa v Sunderland
Rest assured anyone putting Villa in their betting mix this Saturday will not be disappointed. With the Black Cats having lost 11 of their last 13 away games in the Premier League and Villa showing signs of life again recently this looks a mortgage job.
Betting: Aston Villa to beat Sunderland at evens (Hills/Bet Victor)

Cardiff City v Arsenal
The Bluebirds have certainly been able to get themselves up for the big occasions this season as last week's draw with ManYoo, coupled with their win over Man City, proves. That said I feel that Arsenal will have too much quality against a side that doesn't retain the ball well. Olivier Giroud, the big bastard Frenchman, is bang in form and at 5/1 to score first looks like a play from my vantage point.
Betting: Giroud to score first at 5/1 (Coral)

Everton v Stoke City
I expect the Toffees to get it done here, but given they have drawn their last three matches and how Stoke will set up, I can think of worse bets than the 15/8 currently on offer that this one is 0-0 at half-time.
Betting: Half-time score 0-0 at 15/8 (Hills/Sky Bet)

Norwich v Crystal Palace
Palace threw themselves a lifeline by winning at Hull last week and with Tony Pulis now at the helm they will be bullish of pulling off a great escape. It's not happening though. The Eagles are going down like rabid dogs on the highway and they are booked in for another ignominious defeat at Carrow Road.
Betting: Norwich to beat Crystal Palace 2-0 at 9/1 (Bet Victor)

West Ham v Fulham
Massive game down at the bottom in East London this weekend as 'Big Sam' and 'Groot Martin' go head to head. West Ham and Fulham have been p*ss poor so far this term and are both clearly struggling for goals. I'd rather have an arms off than back the hosts, who have failed to win any of their last five at home in the league (losing four), so instead I'm going to have a speculative punt that this one ends without either onion bag being bothered.
Betting: No goalscorer at 11/1 (Coral)

Newcastle V West Brom
The Mags have got their act together in recent weeks and will be well backed for this but I can definitely see Shane Long scoring on Tyneside. The genial Irishman (is there any other type?) has bagged four in his last four competetive matches and after a shocking start to the season he seems to have caught fire recently.
Betting: Long to score anytime at 11/4 (Hills)

Tottenham v Manchester United
Quite simply, if ManYoo set up like they did in Germany the other night, with Shinji Kagawa playing in his favoured position, then 17/10 about an away win is f*cking massive. Wayne Rooney was unreal in Leverkusen and has been the heartbeat of this side for several weeks now. In contrast Spurs are in crisis with AVB hitting outrageously low odds at one stage this week to be the next Premier League manager to get the bullet following that 6-0 humbling at the Etihad. Whatever 'system' is in place doesn't seem to be working and they look totally toothless up front. I'm amazed by United's price here and will be smashing into it accordingly.
Betting: Manchester United to win at 17/10 (Bet Victor)

Hull City v Liverpool
Away win. No danger. Hull will still be reeling after their horror show against Palace last time out (where collectively they really were flatter than their manager's nose) and I think there is much to like about backing the Reds to win by at least a couple of goals in this one.
Betting: Liverpool (-1) to beat Hull at 13/8 (Paddy Power)

Chelsea v Southampton
I won't be knocking folk over to back the Blues at 4/7 or shorter here. They were poor in Europe in the week while Soutahmpton continue to impress with their expansive brand of football. Make no bones, the Saints won't fear a trip to Chelsea and will not be coming to park the bus and claim a shameless point. With this in mind I will probably get conkers deep on the 10/11 about both teams finding the net at the Bridge.
Betting: Both teams to score at 10/11 (Hills)

Manchester City v Swansea
I'll level with you. Since all that carry on in the Falklands and then the 'Hand of God' goal in '86 I haven't had much time for the Argies. But show me someone who reckons Sergio Aguero is not currently one of the best five players on the planet and I will show thee a liar. Sixteen goals in all competitions already for Citeh and having bagged three in his last two the question really is can we afford not to back him at 3s to open the scoring here against a Swansea side who are clearly struggling to replicate last season's level of performance?
Betting: Aguero to score first at 3/1 (Coral/Paddy Power)

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think


ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

Wenger hails important win


s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
