There are three cracking games lined up for Sunday, with two of them live on Sky. We’ve put together a tasty 15/1 acca to set you up for the festive period.
Wednesdays much needed win against Watford helped keep Pep’s charges 7 points behind Chelsea. City’s form has been indifferent, suffering heavy losses against Leicester and Chelsea in recent weeks and they will be hoping for an improvement in Sunday’s headline game with Arsenal.
The Gunners had picked up three wins on the bounce, including a 5-1 away victory over West Ham, before they were undone by two set pieces, to lose in Goodison Park on Tuesday.
Guardiola is without Aguero, Ferandinho and Gundogan for this one. City have not won any of their last six matches against Arsenal and those absences form the starting line-up will make the task of beating them on Sunday very difficult.
We’re expecting a cagey affair and backing the draw at 5/2.
The Saints have only scored more than once in a game on two occasions this season and couldn’t manage a goal v 10 man Stoke in midweek, with Jay Rodriguez failing to convert an unmissable chance. Sofiane Boufal was impressive against on Wednesday causing Stoke’s back line serious problems, Bournemouth will have to keep a close eye on him on Sunday afternoon.
Howe’s team are having no such problems in front of goal having scored nine times in the last six league games. As the recent 4-3 win over Liverpool demonstrates, The Cherries are not afraid of leaving themselves exposed at the back when going in search of goals.
Their caviler attacking attitude matched with the abundance of form players Howe can select makes the home side 17/10 favourites for this one and enough for us to put them into the Sunday acca.
We will be running our 2 Up You Win offer on and all Premier League and La Liga matches across the weekend.
Burnley have only taken one point from their seven away matches so far this season, their struggles on the road look set to continue when they visit White Hart Lane on Sunday. Spurs boast a formidable home record and made short work of other relegation threatened sides Swansea and Hull.
Sean Dyche will be hoping to frustrate Tottenham and prevent them from taking an early lead in the game, however the firepower in the Spurs front line will prove too much for the Clartes here and we expect proceedings to the fairly one sided.
Tottenham on the -2 handicap at 8/5 makes up the final leg of the Sunday acca.
City v Arsenal Draw 5/2
Bournemouth to win 17/10
Tottenham to win (-2 h’cap) 8/5
