Southampton really turned up the heat on under fire West Ham boss Slaven Bilic after raiding the London Stadium for three points yesterday.
The Hammers new home woes continue, with their only wins coming against Bournemouth and lowly Accrington Stanley – they needed a 96th minute winner from Dimitri Payet for that one.
Goals from Charlie Austin, Dušan Tadić and James Ward-Prowse saw the Saints win at a canter and Bilic move into the second favourite slot in our sack race at .
It was 80/1 for the back-in-form Austin to net first with Southampton to win 3-0 and amazingly 12 lucky punters had it!
Major props must go to one bettor in particular, who was confident enough to stick £30 on it happening.
Ward-Prowse’s late goal will have made it a fairly sweet Sunday for him as the punt landed him £2,430.
Our traders spotted this one from a mile away and had Liverpool huge favourites at 1/4.
They didn’t disappoint either, spanking 10-man Hull 5-1 at the new redeveloped Anfield.
Adam Lallana opened the scoring for the Reds in the 17th minute and that was followed by a handball in the box from Hull’s Ahmed El Mohamady, which saw him see red. James Milner made no mistake from the spot to double Liverpool’s lead.
Sadio Mané continued his fine start to the season with a third before half-time, but Ireland’s David Meyler pulled one back for the Tigers in the 51st minute. Philippe Coutinho wasted no time restoring Liverpool’s three-goal advantage battering one in from outside the box a minute later.
Another Milner penalty then sealed the win for Jurgen Klopp’s men with 19 minutes remaining. Klopp has been confirmed for Monday Night Football tonight by the way, so we know what we’re watching!
Having headed into the contest at Dean Court with Bournemouth on the back of four straight Premier League wins, unbeaten Everton must have seemed like bankers to punters.
Especially when you add in the fact that Bournemouth were stung in midweek by Championship side Preston in the EFL Cup and had lost 4-0 to Man City the previous week.
However, a smashing first half drive from Junior Stanislas handed Ronald Koeman’s side their first win of the season and let down an army of people on accumulators.
Everton have the chance to redeem themselves at home on Friday night against Crystal Palace, but the high-flying Eagles are no pushovers.
It only took Man City’s talismanic striker Sergio Aguero a total of nine minutes to open the scoring against struggling Swansea at the Liberty Stadium on his return from a three-game ban.
Aguero had been punished for an elbow on West Ham’s Winston Reid and he let out his frustrations with a brace on Saturday.
He was 13/5 for the first goal and 403 clever punters called it, including one who was so confident in the little Argentine that he stuck a grand on it.
Best of luck keeping him quiet on Wednesday Celtic!
With Ryan Giggs name being muttered under the breath of Swans fans, Francesco Guidolin stands on the brink of being the first Premier League manager to be sacked this season. That’s to happen if you are wondering.
Unfortunately for punters, no one had the foresight to back this in full, as United battered the champions in Saturday’s early match.
José Mourinho’s men returned to form after back-to-back defeats in the league with a sparkling display in the first period.
Smalling’s headed opener was backed by 77 customers at 25/1 and goals from Mata, Rashford as well as a first United goal for big money signing Paul Pogba saw them climb back to sixth in the table.
Demarai Gray handed Leicester a consolation on the hour mark to see the game finish 4-1, a result that was also 25/1 before kick-off.
78 punters were on that, but none of them put the two bets together and that would have landed at a whopping 300/1 shot had anyone seen it coming.
