Back in their halcyon days Wembley was Liverpool’s second home and for the last season and a bit it actually is where Tottenham play their home matches. Today’s fixture between the sides was to be played at the new White Hart Lane but delays in the construction means this Premier League fixture will take place at the national stadium. Tottenham have only failed to score in one of their last 48 home matches at the old ground and their temporary home. BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE is the bet when they play Liverpool today at 8/15 with Ladbrokes.
In their better days a Manchester United away match at somewhere like Watford would involve a team with four straight wins and opponents in the middle of the table. United would be the team with the unblemished record and Watford would have made an average start but this season the roles have been reversed. The home team have maximum points while the visitors have won and lost two matches. The natural order of things can apply again because MANCHESTER UNITED are the team to back at 10/11 with William Hill.
Lancashire play most of their home cricket matches at Old Trafford which is a miracle of modern stadium design. One week it is a Test match venue and seven days later it is the biggest league football stadium in Britain. However, it will be unused today because of Manchester United’s fixture at Watford and Lancashire are playing in the T20 finals day at Edgbaston in Birmingham. LANCASHIRE have been relegated to the second tier of English cricket but can win the T20Blast at 5/2 with Betfair. Meanwhile LAH TI DAR is the tip to win the St Leger at Doncaster (3.35) and the horse can be backed to win the oldest Classic in the world.
