Bank on City to tear Saints apart
EVERY acca needs a banker and the one for today is MAN CITY who take on Southampton at the Etihad.
The bookies have them at long odds-on for a reason and they can tear apart Mark Hughes side who have tightened up in recent weeks and gone back to basics but as much as they will defend they will not be able to keep out Pep Guardiola’s well-oiled machine.
There could well be a few goals in this game with City having all the possession despite the latest injury to Kevin De Bruyne.
Despite City being short, they add a valuable dividend to our acca, just as Liverpool did in our successful foursome last Saturday.
Another Premier League side is the choice for our second team to beef up our multiple this weekend.
Brighton travel to Goodison displaying probably their best form since arriving in the Premier League and Glenn Murray defying his age to record six league goals already this season.
Their opponents though are best suited at home and they will be looking to bounce back after an unlucky defeat to United at Old Trafford last weekend.
The Toffees are a much better side this season than last and have more attacking options available to them than in previous years.
The addition of Richarlison from Watford has proved a masterstroke by Marco Silva and he can help EVERTON to another three points.
The competitive League One is the destination for our next pick with Rochdale playing host to LUTON TOWN.
The Hatters would be mad to pass up the opportunity of gaining three points at Spotland that would keep them well within touching distance of the automatic promotion places.
At present they lie in fifth place just three points off third placed Sunderland who have played a game less.
They have forward Danny Hylton in fine form having hit five in eight games since his free transfer from Oxford in the close season including a hattrick against fellow high flyers Accrington two games ago.
League Two sees second bottom Cheltenham play host to 10th placed MANSFIELD.
The Stags can help us punters jump for joy by winning at the home of the world-famous race festival.
They have lost just once this season and their only downfall has been their inability to score the goals their play has deserved.
That said, they are tight at the back having conceded just ten goals in their first 14 games and with Cheltenham finding goals hard to come by David Flitcroft’s side can just get their nose in front and edge home.
Depending on which bookie you use and their odds, a winning acca would add up to around 15/2.
Good buy: Richarlison has lifted Everton
