Manchester United Vs Arsenal
Sunday 10th November 2013: 4:10pm
If Arsene Wenger's men want to prove how ready they are to win the Barclay's Premier League, they could do no worse than a win at the fortress of fortresses, Old Trafford.
While United have been extremely below par for their very high standards under David Moyes, they will represent a stern test for Wenger's team on Sunday, possibly more because of a mental block than the standard of play they have to offer. Win in Manchester, and the pressure on Arsenal to win the title this year will certainly be taken up a notch.
United to be outplayed and outgunned
After wins against Liverpool, and even more impressively, Borussia Dortmund, we can see Arsenal taking all three points on Sunday. They have been extremely classy this season, and well worth the extortionate ticket prices they continue to charge. The Gunners are outsiders for this one given United's home advantage, so you should look to jump on this fast. Arsenal are best-priced at 23/10 with William Hill, while United are 7/5 with Paddy Power. The draw is 5/2 with Bet365.
For our money, a narrow 2-1 Arsenal win at 9/1 with Betfair looks very good. A slim victory looks on the cards, and if you like the margin but not the scoreline, the Arsenal win by one goal is 9/2 with BetVictor.
Ramsey the game-changer yet again
Aaron Ramsey's transformation from perennial Arsenal scapegoat to match-winner is nothing short of amazing this season. Many say he always had the talent anyway, but the way he has clawed his way back from the shortness of confidence he exhibited before the end of last season is exemplary. We fancy the young Welshman to continue his goalscoring form against United, and he is a hefty 4/1 Anytime Goalscorer with Betfred at the moment.
We also like the look of Boylesport's Anytime Assist market, and Ramsey is 4/1 for that as well, while his teammate Mesut Ozil is 3/1 to provide a killer ball on Sunday.
One team a man light?
This game has always been a feisty one, and with a lot more than pride on the line for both teams it may get a little bit heated. Odds for a sending off in the match are 21/10 with Stan James.
Tottenham Vs Newcastle
Sunday 10th November 2013: 12pm
As a piece on the Guardian website said this morning, it must only be a matter of time before Tottenham click into first gear and give someone an absolute tonking. Whether it will be the early Sunday-afternoon game against Newcastle however, remains to be seen.
Spurs by the skin of their teeth again
We've come to expect narrow Spurs wins in the Premier League recently, and this might be the case again against Newcastle. Andre Villas-Boas has bemoaned the Spurs fans when the team aren't winning, and it may hamper the team again. Spurs are odds-on at 3/5 with Paddy Power to win the match, while Newcastle are 6/1 with Sportingbet. The draw is 23/4 with Unibet.
Like their North London neighbours, we reckon a narrow Spurs win is on the cards at White Hart Lane. The Spurs win by one goal is 11/4 with Ladbrokes.
Soldado first off the mark
Spurs' beastly frontman must surely start hitting the back of the net from open play soon, and against Newcastle would be a good time to do it. The Spaniard is 9/2 with Bet365 to score first, something that is well within his capabilities if the supply is good.
Loic Remy looks like a good shout for Anytime Goalscorer as well. The Frenchman looks well at home in the Premier League and will definitely give Spurs' solid defence a scare on Sunday. He is 3/1 with Paddy Power to get on the scoresheet.
