A Must Must Win Match For Mourinho
Manchester United were well organised at the back and showed some commitment in the goalless draw against Valencia in the Champions League at Old Trafford. If you look back at some of the big European nights at the ground in the past during the Sir Alex Ferguson era the football under him and Jose Mourinho was like chalk and cheese. The current boss needs a win at home against Newcastle today but will he go against type and instruct his players to gamble and Attack, Attack, Attack? MOURINHO is the favourite in the sack race at 1/5 with Betfair.
If he could have chosen a must-win game it could have been Newcastle on United’s home patch. Losing 3-1 at West Ham was not a disaster but the manner of the defeat was and a similar effort and result today could be the end for the Special One. His long term prospects in the job he craved most are not good but Mourinho can extend his reign through the international break with a win. Newcastle do not have the quality to take advantage of the dire state of the opposition so a win for MANCHESTER UNITED TO NIL is the bet at 11/10 with Ladbrokes.
There are five matches in the Premier League today that kick-off at the traditional time of 3pm. That means half the fixtures now start at different times at the behest of television. The broadcasters put huge amounts of money into the Premier League so get to call the shots. Only Wolves at Crystal Palace are favourites to win on the road and the nap is BURNLEY to beat Huddersfield at home at 13/10 with bet365.
Tomorrow’s Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe is the richest race in Europe. The draw has worked out well for Enable and the filly can win the race again. However, despite a high draw the each-way value is KEW GARDENS at 10/1 with William Hill. There is Group 1 action at Newmarket today in a race over one mile for fillies and mares (3.15). WIND CHIMES on form and ratings is the selection at 2/1 with Coral.
