PREPARE for another bumper weekend of Premier League action as the top-flight heads into a frantic December.
We’ve betting pointers for you from 3 Super Sunday clashes, beginning at St Marys where Manchester United make the long trip to face Southampton.
Southampton vs Man Utd, Sunday 2pm
First off and we have the 2020/21 surprise plan.
Southampton are a group reborn under Ralph Hassenhuttl, with the Saints seven video games unbeaten and starting this video game 4 points ahead of Manchester United.
No Ings, no issue for the South Coast clothing who saw off Newcastle here in their last home video game prior to a solid point on the roadway at Wolves.
They invite a Man Utd team who are back on the best track and looking for a fourth-straight win in all competitions.
Their 1-0 triumph over West Brom last weekend was ugly – extremely awful – however 3 points was all that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer required.
Historically, this is a quite sorrowful fixture for Southampton and they have actually not beaten Man Utd on home soil considering that 2003.
That’s 12 home conferences without a win for the Saints, however they have actually gotten draws over the last two seasons.
Fans on the South Coast feared the worst when Danny Ings was eliminated for 6 weeks, but Che Adams has stepped up to the plate and there are lots of goals in this talented young side.
They’ve scored 2 objectives exactly in all 4 of their house matches this season, winning three without conceding.
As ever, we’re warning all of you about banking on the win market when it pertains to this Male Utd group.
Yes they’ve been exceptional on the road this term, however an odds-on price of 19/20 is simply too much of a threat – especially at a team unbeaten in seven and rupturing with self-confidence.
Rather, we reckon you offer Saints your full support on Sunday – not with the win at 27/10, however with objectives.
If they were to go down on house soil, it’ll be with a bang and we reckon they can continue their run of scoring a minimum of 2 objectives at St Marys.
Saints to score over 1.5 objectives is a massive 2/1, fantastic value when you consider they have pillaged 17 in just 9 games.
Futher to that, United have yielded in each of their Prem away matches up until now this season.
Goals are the order of the day and if you want to play it much safer, over 2.5 at 5/6 is an exceptional price.
For the visitors, Bruno Fernandes continues to steal the program.
He’s gone to another level in the last 3 weeks, scoring 5 in his last 3 for the Red Devils.
The Portuguese now has 21 in 35 games considering that joining in January, along with 15 helps. World class.
The bookies have actually taken notification and he’s now shorter than every Guy Utd striker to net at anytime – 6/4.
Nevertheless, with the magician on penalty task and looking in frightening type, you opt for the hot hand.

Chelsea vs Tottenham, Sunday 4pm
A potential cracker on the cards as Tottenham make the short journey to West London.
Jose Mourinho is back at his old stomping ground and eyeing up his very first Premier League title since 2015.
Too soon, Spurs fans? Not to jinx it, however it was a Mourinho masterclass in video game management as the North Londoners outfoxed Manchester City last week.
Chelsea on the other hand have lastly hit their stride under Frank Lampard and there are signs their big-money summertime signings are gelling.
The Blues have won their last 6 in all competitions and are quite in the hunt for the title themselves this season – if they can keep up the consistency.
They appear to have actually plugged the dripping defence which saw them slip to 3-3 draws against West Brom and Southampton, with Edouard Mendy looking an astute signing.
Chelsea can surpass Spurs in the table with 3 points and there’s plenty at stake at the Bridge – but do not expect Mourinho to take his foot off the gas.
There’s an appropriate steel about his Tottenham side and the Unique One appears to have his mojo back, with gamers understanding their jobs and system inside out.
Even so, it will take a lot to get over the mental block which has prevented Spurs from performing on this ground over the years.
Tottenham have actually won on just one of their last THIRTY-FOUR gos to here. Yep, 34.
A 3-1 win in 2018 was their very first given that 1990 on this ground and ever since, it’s been three defeats on the spin.
We’re massive fans of the way Spurs are playing at the moment though and reckon there’s lots of value in them getting an outcome – even if the history books disagree.
This is the here and now, without any fans allowed the ground on Sunday and a group absolutely breaking with self-confidence on the road after four wins from four.
Tottenham double opportunity is a great 8/11 which covers a Spurs win or the draw.
We’re expecting objectives in this one, with Child Heung-min and Harry Kane set to partner with their double-act show as soon as again.
3 of Chelsea’s four home video games this season have actually included over 3.5 goals and on what could be a frantic Sunday afternoon of action, back that once again at 9/5.
Social network was awash with winning slips when Kane and Boy laid on goals for each other versus West Ham and Burnley.
Boy is a huge 9/4 anytime and Kane a generous 6/4. Double them up or go singles, but whatever you do don’t miss out on those prices.

Arsenal vs Wolves, Sunday 7.15 pm
Things simply aren’t working at the moment for Mikel Arteta and Arsenal.
The Spaniard is struggling to get a consistent ignore of a skilled team, with 3 beats in the last 5 leaving the Gunners in the bottom half of the early table.
Goals have actually been the concern for the Toolbox this season and they’ve netted simply 9 times in nine matches, leaving them with a goal distinction of -1.
That’s no way to construct for an effective season, no matter what division you remain in.
Wolves are also having a hard time to discover the net this term after their great project last time out – however have four wins from their opening nine.
That’s barely a catastrophe and Nuno Santo’s men battled back well after going behind to in-form Southampton on Monday Night Football.
Since going back to the top-flight, the Emirates has actually been a pleased hunting ground for Wolves who have two times gone back to the West Midlands with a point.
Both meetings here have actually ended 1-1 and we’re anticipating something similar in what could be an appropriate chess match.
Arsenal simply need to return to scoring and with objectives, the wins will come.
But there are genuine concerns about Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s kind, with the Gabon striker without an objective from open play because the first game of the season – and signing that profitable new contract.
Nicolas Pepe is too hectic headbutting individuals to make a meaningful contribution, while the only imagination Mesut Ozil is producing these days comes through Twitter.
If Thomas Partey returns from a thigh problem we’re more hopeful of the Gunners’ possibilities on Sunday – however we won’t be backing them to take three points at a large even cash.
Rather, both groups to score looks the play which has actually been a winner on the last 3 meetings in North London.
That’s likewise 1/1 – a huge rate in that market – and well worth a dabble over the result.
If you are wishing to back the Gunners with your hard-earned this Sunday, play it more secure than the full time result and rather trust Arteta’s males to win a minimum of one half at 8/13.
Aubameyang is 7/5 to score anytime and will be popular, but we ‘d leave him alone up until he becomes reliable once again infront of objective.
Instead, back Raul Jimenez at a heftier rate of 9/5.
The Mexican has seven objectives in 14 games for club and country this season, so depend on him to do the business again simply as he carried out in the 1-1 draw here last November.
