Everton slipped up against Crystal Palace in midweek, but Degsy's tipping them to beat United on Sunday. Plus, there will be no problems for Liverpool and Chelsea...
Liverpool and Man City have 174 goals between them so far and Degsy is tipping more of the same when the two sides meet at Anfield on Sunday...
Manchester United v Newcastle United
Both of these Uniteds suffered morale-sapping defeats in midweek. But only one made me shout "f*ck off" and throw a fried egg Haribo at my TV set. That was ManYoo, who I had in a rather tasty double with Arsenal to be winning at half-time against Hull. David Moyes rightfully came to grief in the press after another insipid display from his team, who are now 20/1 shots for the league title. I simply cannot have the hosts at twos on here and think a more solid shout is the 4/5 with Ladbrokes that both teams will find the net.
Betting: Both teams to score at 4/5 (Ladbrokes)
Crystal Palace v Cardiff City
The Eagles are stirring. Two wins from three matches now for Palace and a team that looked like lost causes just a few short weeks ago suddenly have a genine squeak at avoiding the drop. I'm still uber sceptical they will mind but I like the look of them at 9/5 here against a Cardiff side who are pretty sh*te on the road.
Betting: Palace to beat Cardiff at 9/5 (Bet Victor)
Liverpool v West Ham
What can you say about Luis Suarez's display against Norwich in the week? Some of those goals were just outrageous but talk of him being in the same class as Leo Messi or CR7 is surely a bit premature. Does he do it week in, week out? Where was he at Hull the Sunday before? He's a special, special player no doubt and there is room for improvement but as long as Messi and Ronaldo are sporting shinpads of a weekend he'll never be mistaken for the best in the world. That said, I am all over 11/4 quotes about him scoring first against West Ham, who are still struggling at the wrong end of the table.
Betting: Suarez to score first at 11/4 (Coral)
Southampton v Manchester City
The Saints, so impressive during much of the opening third of this campaign, have slumped alarmingly in recent weeks and they are leaking goals. That's not something you want to be doing with Sergio Aguero around, the Argentine whon is averaging a goal in the Premier League every 118 minutes. It's a brave bookie then who puts his head above the parapet and offers better than evens about 'Kun' scoring in a match. But that's exactly what Stan James are doing this weekend and this is a price that should be jumped on.
Betting: Aguero to score anytime at 11/10 (Stan James)
Stoke City v Chelsea
When you consider the fact that Suarez has scored more goals on his own than the entire Stoke team in the league so far this season (and the fact he was banned for a few games early doors) you will concur that the Potteries outfit are a side are struggling for goals. I will therefore be taking on Sky Bet's 7/4 quote that Chelsea win this to nil. The Blues have not been as ruthless defensively as they were during Senor Mourinho's first tenure in London but they do have some quality at the back and can keep Stoke out here.
Betting: Chelsea to win to nil at 7/4 (Sky Bet)
West Brom v Norwich City
The Canaries have shipped 14 goals in their last three away matches, so good luck to anyone backing them at the Hawthorns. I fancy the Baggies to edge this, just, possibly by the odd goal in three.
Betting: West Brom to win 2-1 at 8/1 (bet365/Bet Victor)
Sunderland v Tottenham
There was enough to like about Sunderland's spirited 4-3 defeat to Chelsea in the week to think they might be worth a punt here ar 7/2. AVB still doesn't know his best team and Spurs are not scoring enough goals. It'll be cold and raw on Wearside and I like the Black Cats to raise a few eyebrows by winning this.
Betting: Sunderland to win at 7/2 (Ladbrokes)
Fulham v Aston Villa
I have literally no idea how this one ends and could make a case for all three results in west London. I do however fancy Darren Barker to punch out a clear win on the cards in his IBF middleweight title defence against Felix Sturm. Sturm is a fighter on the slide while Barker looks to be in his absolute prime right now. So forget about Fulham v Villa and get your dough on Barnet's finest doing the biz in Germany.
Betting: Barker to beat Sturm on points at 13/8 (Bet Victor)
Arsenal v Everton
Gunners are four points clear at the top but you can still get 12/5 about them winning the Premier League for the first time since 2004. This weekend is another serious test of their title credentials as Everton roll into town. The Blues will be buoyed by their midweek win at Old Trafford and have the players to cause Arsenal all sorts of grief. But in Aaron Ramsey, Arsenal have one of the hottest midfielders in Europe right now. The Welshman has scored a staggering 15 goals in all competitions this term and I like the look of him at better than twos to notch in Sunday's late game.
Betting: Ramsey to score anytime at 5/2 (Sky Bet)
