Same Old Story For Manchester City
Manchester City dealt with a newly-managed Chelsea in the Community Shield and they can handle Arsenal today in the same way. It will be strange to see Arsenal not led by Arsene Wenger but the new boss Unai Emery will be under pressure for a home win. However, MANCHESTER CITY look as good as ever and they can begin the defence of the Premier League by beating Arsenal and that outcome is 5/6 with William Hill.
Liverpool begin their Premier League campaign with a home match against West Ham. They are being touted as potential champions so these are the type of matches that must be won. West Ham will be more attacked minded than last season and Liverpool’s two season openers under Jorgen Klopp have produced 13 goals. Therefore, the standout bet is OVER 3.5 GOALS at 29/25 with Betfair.
Some of the best footballers on the world will be playing in the Premier League today but the star of the show is a superstar filly who is running in a Group 1 race in France. Racing in Britain was introduced on Sunday to provide high class action on the second day of the weekend but it is ordinary fare. Other racing countries like Ireland and France stage some of their best races on the seventh day of the week.
ALPHA CENTAURI can overcome unsuitable ground and can be backed at Evens with Ladbrokes to win the 3.20pm race at Deauville. The trainer of ADVERTISE cannot see his horse being beating in the Phoenix Stakes at the Curragh (3.35pm) and the horse is 5/4 with Ladbrokes to win the race. The double pays 7/2 with that bookmaker.
