Degsy has put the mortgage on an early flight home for England and is tipping Argentina and Sergio Aguero to fill their boots in Brazil...
Degsy got a whole load of stick last week for backing Sunderland to win at Man United so he's happy to put his head up again and back Newcastle at Liverpool...
Chelsea v Everton
Jose Mourinho's 'little horse' certainly has big bollocks and after 26 matches it finds itself leading the title race by a point. I reckon Chelsea are fair value at 8/13 here given their outrageous Premier League record at home under The Special One. However, I was really impressed with Everton last Sunday and reckon they can at least trouble the scorers at the Bridge.
Betting: Both teams to score at evens (Coral/Hills)
Arsenal v Sunderland
I went in heavy on both teams to score in Wednesday's Arsenal v Bayern Munich Champions League clash. So, to the German Gooner whose all-too-casual penalty was fluffed early on...I f*cking hate you! Eyebrows were raised at the inclusion of Yaya Sanogo but there was much to like about his display and this youngster seems to have the world at his feet. Indeed a certain Irish layer may live to regret going as big as 11/2 that he scores first against the Black Cats.
Betting: Sanogo to score first at 11/2 (Paddy Power)
Cardiff City v Hull
This one absolutely reeks of draw. And low goals.
Betting: No Goalscorer at 15/2 (Coral)
Manchester City v Stoke
Citeh should walk this, so long as Martin Demichelis doesn't start. The Argentine is a player Ron Atkinson would no doubt describe as 'deceptively slow'. Gawd I miss Big Ron and his use of 'Ronglish' on the box. "I've had this sneaking feeling throughout the game you know that it's there to be won." Boosh!
Betting: Yaya Toure to score anytime at 15/8 (Betfred)
West Brom v Fulham
I'd heard that much pony in the media about Felix Magath being this macho hard man type with a penchant for brutality I was half expecting him to turn up to his first news conference with a Bowie knife and a headband on. He's got his hands full at Fulham but then he's also got previous when it comes to firefighting and rescuing lost causes. It's going to be a culture shock for the players but if they embrace his methods they can still beat the drop. And they can do that by claiming a point here.
Betting: West Brom and Fulham to draw at 28/10 (bet365/Bet Victor)
West Ham v Southampton
West Ham are absolutely flying (three wins on the spin) and their revival has been influenced by Kevin Nolan, who looks to be back to his very best. Nobby did the business for this page at 10/1 recently and he can oblige again by scoring against the Saints.
Betting: Nolan to score anytime at 11/4 (Betfred)
Crystal Palace v Manchester United
One would have to be off one's f*cking nut to even consider backing ManYoo at 8/13 or worse here. The Red Devils have won twice in the league in 2014, an outrageous stat given March is almost upon us. And The Eagles have looked a different animal since Tony Pulis took over. Just back them on the goal handicap here, sit back and watch another Python-esque display from Davey Moyes and his band of chancers.
Betting: Crystal Palace (+1) to beat Manchester United at 11/8 (Sky Bet)
Liverpool v Swansea
Swansea, footballing down-and-outs just a few years ago, battled bravely against Italian giants Napoli on Thursday night but such a display surely came at a physical cost? With no European distractions the Reds will be fully charged and can wring the Swans necks here.
Betting: Liverpool to win 3-0 at 9/1 (Ladbrokes)
Newcastle United v Aston Villa
Good luck if you are backing the Mags at 11/10. I'd personally rather have a leg off. They are a club in crisis make no mistake and I reckon Villa are buying money here in the double result market.
Betting: Draw or Aston Villa's double result at 4/5 (Coral)
Norwich City v Tottenham
The Canaries can't buy a goal at the minute while Spurs' away form this season has been none too shabby. Ergo the plan this Sunday is to back Tottenham to win to nil, sink a steady 14 pints and when the bet lands croon Chas & Dave classic 'There Ain't No Pleasing You' at the top of my voice in the boozer knowing full well I'm off graft on Monday.
Betting: Tottenham to win to nil at 11/4 (Coral)
