Our tipster Andrew Cunneen is all about the romance.

We’re approaching a very key time in the Premier League now. It’s when fixtures begin to become an issue again post-Christmas. Teams have FA Cup games, some even have a Cup final and the Champions League knockouts are the huge elephant in the room.

You’ll begin to see squads being juggled, results become inconsistent and a lot of angry managers on the sideline complaining that their game should have kicked off two hours later, as if that’s some justification for their left back tucking in too far and letting the opposition right winger have a tap-in at the back post.


Sunday at 2pm is a fine time for a few mistakes, too. You’re not the early game on a Saturday or the late game on the Sunday so it doesn’t feel like a huge fixture. It’s also not a standard 3pm kickoff where it feels routine.

So, wipe that gravy off your chin, tell the people around you what they want to hear and settle to find your winning 2pm Sunday treble with me. After all, you may well have forgotten to buy a Valentine’s Day present for tomorrow, but a few quid can sort you a nice surprise dinner and smooth things over.

Burnley v Liverpool – A Weghorst Shot in Each Half

This is one of my favourite markets, particularly in February after new signings have come in and they’re keen as mustard. And before you ask – no, I’ve no idea why mustard would be keen. I heard Rik Mayall say it once and it just stuck.

But Wout Weghorst was seen as the replacement for Chris Wood when he’s, in fact, a pretty sizeable upgrade. His performance against Man United was excellent and he will get the space on the edge of the box to at least fire off a few efforts while at home. I fancy Weghorst to Have a Shot in Each Half.

Newcastle v Aston Villa – Both Teams to Score

TV: Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League

Newcastle have turned over a new leaf. They look remotely functional and most importantly, they’ve scored in each of their last four games having lost 11-1 on aggregate over their previous three ties in the competition.


Now, Villa are clearly on the right path to become a top six club again under Steven Gerrard, which, I assure you, pains me more than I can possibly express. But it’s now almost undeniable.

As Everton and Leicester begin to fade into the background, Villa got first jump on a young, energetic manager and it appears to be paying off. They’ve scored in each of their last six but do have a tendency to go blank for a 15-minute spell every week. Both Teams To Score should be a great play in this one.

Spurs v Wolves – Wolves Win/Draw Double Chance

As someone who works with data, it was always going to be a case of when and not if Wolves turned it around. Their xG tally was higher than half the league’s and yet they couldn’t find the net on any given week time and time again.

Spurs were looking like a typical Antonio Conte side up until recently, but shipping three to Southampton, two to Chelsea, and a further two to Leicester the week before, spells a mini crisis of sorts. Wolves have won four of their last six and weirdly, have only lost by multiple goals this season in two of their 22 games. There’s a good chance they get something out of this game with the Wolves Win/Draw Double Chance.
