Tipster Dave Tindall with his latest betting column and best wagers for Sunday's big Premier League matches

Liverpool v Everton

Are Liverpool missing Luis Suarez? The 6-0 thrashing of Newcastle last week suggests not and, interestingly, that wasn't a one-off. The Reds have actually won six of the seven games the Uruguayan striker has missed, racking up 18 goals in the process. Add in the fact that David Moyes hasn't managed a single win as Everton boss in away games at Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea and Man Utd and everything appears to point to a home win in the Merseyside derby at Anfield on Sunday. Brendan Rodgers' men are available at a fraction under even money and that seems a very fair price given the above and the fact that they've won seven of their last 11 Premier League games against their Merseyside neighbours. This match-up has seen more red cards (20 in the last 32 meetings) than any other Premier League fixture so also back a sending off at 2/1. Finally, Steven Gerrard scored a hat-trick in this fixture last year so take him at 12/5 to find the net again.

Man Utd v Chelsea

If you're looking for goals in the Premier League this weekend then Old Trafford is the place to turn to (live on Sky Sports at 4pm). Chelsea are the visitors to Manchester United and the last six meetings between the pair have produced 29 goals. That works out at an average of 4.8 goals per game so backing over 4.5 goals at 4/1 is a bet worth chancing. Amazingly, United have scored in their last 66 home Premier League games so that's at least one guaranteed and there are plenty of likely goalscorers on both teams. Chelsea's Brazilian star David Luiz has netted three times in his last five games so is worth a dabble at 6/1 to score anytime while, keeping it simple, also back Robin van Persie to score the game's opening goal at 9/2. He's bagged six goals in his last four appearances so is flying again after a bit of a dip in form.

Champions League

Sky Bet already have over 30 markets on the Champions League final between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund at Wembley on May 25. Bayern, after their incredible 7-0 aggregate defeat of Barcelona, are the 10/11 favourites to win in 90 minutes while Dortmund are 12/5 and the draw 13/5. Bayern 1-0 and Bayern 2-1 share favouritism in the correct score market at 15/2 while Jurgen Klopp's men are 11/1 to nick it 1-0 and 10/1 to triumph 2-1. Interestingly, Dortmund have won five of their last eight meetings against Bayern although, this season, the Munich outfit have won two and drawn the other of their three match-ups.

Lions Tour

The British & Irish Lions squad for the tour of Australia was named on Tuesday and features 15 Welshmen, 10 Englishmen, nine Irishmen and three Scots. Sky Bet have already chalked up a plethora of prices and make Warren Gatland's men just 4/6 to win their first series Down Under since 1989. The Lions play 10 matches on their tour and Sky Bet go 9/1 that they win them all. It's 100/30 for nine and 2/1 for eight. Welsh pair George North and Alex Cuthbert are the joint 7/2 favourites to be the top tryscorers for the tour. You can also bet on how many points the Lions rack up in the three-Test series and it's 5/6 for over 125.5 and the same price for under. A 3-0 series win for the Lions is just 3/1.

* Also check the golf section for Dave's weekly betting previews. He's tipped winners at 55/1 (Jamie Donaldson), 25/1 (Phil Mickelson) and Dustin Johnson (14/1) already this season and also had three runners-up each-way at 50/1.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
