Five Tips for The Weekend

Last weekends tips included Alexandre Lacazette to score the first Premier League goal of the season and Romelu Lukaku to score in a Man Utd victory and this weekend I’ve got five more tips for you to get your teeth into heading into another busy weekend of sport.

1) Marcus Rashford to Score at Any Time vs Swansea – 21/20 (Ladbrokes)

Manchester United were superb on the opening weekend of the Premier League season as they swept West Ham United aside on their way to a 4-0 victory. New signings Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic got most of the plaudits on that day, but Marcus Rashford turned in an excellent performance on the wing. I’m backing him to score at any time this weekend and the odds of 21/20 on offer look like a great price.

2) Leicester to win and BTTS – 11/4 (Ladbrokes)

Leicester City can count themselves very unlucky to have lost to Arsenal last Friday night after two late goals from Arsenal saw them grab a 4-3 victory. This weekend they take on a Brighton & Hove Albion side who lost 2-0 to Manchester City last weekend and I’m backing Leicester to win this one at a canter.

3) Liverpool (-2) vs Crystal Palace – 9/4 (Ladbrokes)

Crystal Palace were terrible last weekend, losing 3-0 at home to Huddersfield Town and star man Wilfried Zaha also picked up an injury in the game to compound a terrible start for new manager Frank de Boer. They come up against a Liverpool side who have scored five times in their first two games and I fancy them to beat Palace comfortably on Sunday.

4) AC Milan (-1) vs Crotone – 6/4 (Ladbrokes)

AC Milan will be interesting to watch this season after spending nearly 200 million Euros this summer on new talent. The club have brought in quality players and I fancy them to finish second in Serie A this season and hopefully they can challenge Juventus at the top. They start their season away at Crotone and I’m backing them to win with a -1 handicap in this one.

5) Under 2.5 goals, Southampton vs West Ham – 19/20 (Ladbrokes)

Southampton averaged less than a goal a game at home last season and they began their campaign with a 0-0 draw against Swansea City. Meanwhile, West Ham were roundly beaten 4-0 by Man Utd on the opening weekend and looked short of ideas in attack. Under 2.5 goals at just below evens in this one looks like easy money to me.
