Manchester United are unbeaten against Liverpool in eight matches and it would appeal to Jose Mourinho’s nature to extend that run when the sides meet in a Premier League fixture at Anfield today. The home team have reached the break in 15 of 16 league matches this season without conceding a goal. Mourinho could park the bus or go for broke but the former is likely and UNDER 2.5 GOALS is 6/5 with Coral.
But for losing their first two fixtures Arsenal would be unbeaten in the Premier League like Liverpool. Another strange anomaly is that Arsenal have not been in front at half time in the Premier League this season. They are at Southampton today with the second string playing in defence. Class should prevail after the break and the DRAW/ARSENAL Half Time – Full Time result is 4/1 with bet365.
Harry Kane is the favourite to win the BBC Sports Personality of the Year award and the World Cup top scorer would be a worthy winner. Despite a format tweak which sees the contenders announced at the start of tonight’s show he could be the victim of recency. TYSON FURY made his claim two weeks ago in drawing a fight many judges thought he had won and can be backed to win SPOTY at 14/1 with Betfair.
There is a decent meeting at Navan in Ireland today and the feature race is the Grade 2 novice hurdle over two miles and four furlongs at 12.30. On ratings and the betting it’s a wide open affair and any one of the nine runners could prevail. On bumper form from last season and a win in a maiden hurdle 36 days ago RHINESTONE can win this race and that outcome is 3/1 with William Hill.
