The lunchtime kick off on Saturday should be a game to look forward to as old rivals Sunderland and Newcastle lock horns at the Stadium of Light. Newcastle have been pretty poor of late and aren’t great on the road whilst Sunderland have performed ok at home so far this season and will fancy themselves to get something out of the game. Sunderland might shade it but I think the draw is a better bet at 23/10 with Totesport. If you fancy a crack at the correct score then 1-1 has to be the pick at 11/2 with Betfred whilst Kenwyne Jones can score the first goal and is 6/1 with Bet365.

Saturday’s evening kick off sees Liverpool host serial drawers Fulham. Fulham would be very happy with a point here but they are unlikely to get it and it’s hard to see anything apart from an easy Liverpool victory. 3-0 looks about right and the 15/2 on offer with VC Bet looks a fair price. Peter Crouch hasn’t been playing many games recently but his performance in Europe during the week might sway Rafa Benitez’s mind and he looks worth a bet to score first at 5/1 with Betfred. Don’t forget that if he doesn’t play you will get your stake back.
On Sunday there is another derby with Birmingham facing Aston Villa. Villa are yet to win away this season and as many local derbys end up in draws it looks sensible to stick with that outcome. 11/5 is the price with Bet365 and it should also be worth backing no goalscorer at 8/1 with Stan James. Birmingham have failed to score in two of their home matches already this season.
In yet another local game Blackburn face a short trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United where a good result is not unfamiliar to Mark Hughes. He had plenty of them as a Manchester United player but has also won his fair share of matches there as a manager. Having said that, now is not the time to be facing Manchester United as they are in formidable form and it is hard to look past the home side. A 2-0 home win looks a fair call and is 11/2 with Stan James. There are many players capable of scoring for Manchester United so it looks a safer bet to have a go at the anytime goalscorer market with Carlos Tevez at 11/8 with Bet365.
