Tof­fees can kick off our 7/1 acca cracker

The Racing Paper - - Football - by Mar­lon Ket­tle

GAME of the week­end is no doubt the clash be­tween Tot­ten­ham and Chelsea at Wem­b­ley, but we look to Mersey­side for the first team of our mul­ti­ple in the shape of EVER­TON.

The Tof­fees play host to Neil Warnock’s Cardiff and the Blue­birds haven’t won at Good­i­son since 1926 and that run won’t be bro­ken to­day de­spite the south Wales side’s re­cent im­prove­ment.

Marco Silva’s men have lost one in the last six and that was an un­lucky, nar­row de­feat at Old Traf­ford as United went on a three-match win­ning run.

Ever­ton are likely to add to their squad in the Jan­uary win­dow but those who are al­ready in the side will be look­ing to make sure they are not re­placed.

The Blues have per­formed well at home, es­pe­cially Gylfi Sig­urds­son, who has re­dis­cov­ered his form and scor­ing boots hav­ing hit five al­ready this term and al­lied to his skill and cre­ativ­ity he is show­ing why Ron­ald Koe­man splashed £40m to sign him from Swansea. He can be the cat­a­lyst for a good home win.

The Cham­pi­onship is where our next se­lec­tion lies and it’s a north v south clash where WI­GAN take on Read­ing.

The Lat­ics may have lost the last four but they can bounce back af­ter the in­ter­na­tional break feel­ing fresh and con­fi­dent in front of their own fans where they have dis­played their best form so far and three of those re­verses were away from home.

Their main player is Nick Pow­ell and the ex-Man United player has a touch of class about him that pro­duces a good part­ner­ship with front man Will Grigg and if those two per­form Read­ing could be on a hid­ing to noth­ing.

BARNS­LEY are the third se­lec­tion as they play host to York­shire rivals Don­caster in League One.

The Tykes are the stronger team of the two and have a tighter de­fence than Donny who have shipped in 25 goals in their 18 games.

With Ki­ef­fer Moore hav­ing hit nine in 16 for Barns­ley they should just have enough fire­power for the win.

CHARL­TON com­plete our acca line-up and they are chas­ing a play-off place in League One.

They have a great op­por­tu­nity to se­cure the three points that will keep them within reach of the other top sides when they play host to Bris­tol Rovers who are near the bot­tom.

Although de­fen­sively sound they have found goals hard to come by, but the Ad­dicks have Kar­lan Grant bang­ing them in from mid­field along with front­man Lyle Tay­lor who’s look­ing for his 10th of the sea­son.

The four-timer adds up to around 7/1 de­pend­ing on your choice of bookie.
