I’M FOCUSING on the big games for today’s both teams to score treble.
I’ve already suggested goals in the Capital One Cup Final between Chelsea and Spurs on a separate.
I also fancy goals in the big Premier League game between Liverpool and Man City. Al lot of people are tipping City to win but it’s tough to call especially when you look at the stats.
City have won none of their last 11 Premier League trips to Anfield (drawn 4, lost 7) but have scored two or more goals in each of their last six Premier League games against Liverpool.
Four of those six have finished 2-2 and there was also a 3-2 so games at Liverpool between the sides recently have been high scoring.
Complete the treble with Celtic v Aberdeen – first v second – in the Scottish Premiership. I still don’t believe Aberdeen are genuine title contenders but will go level at the top if they win and Derek McInnes will go for it.
He has in-form attacker in Adam Rooney and David Goodwillie and Niall McGinn are others who can provide a goal threat. I can see a score draw and while the Dons have lost their last 11 league visits to Parkhead they won in the Cup last season.
In six of their last seven defeats in the east end of Glasgow both sides have scored and both meetings this season ended 2-1 to Celtic.
Other games on my radar included Sassuolo v Lazio, Werder Bremen v Wolfsburg and Palermo v Empoli.
Both to score treble
Chelsea v Spurs (4pm)
Liverpool v Man City (12pm)
Celtic v Aberdeen (12pm)
