DONALD TRUMP’S not the most popular American in Wales – but Swansea fans will probably back him ahead of bungling Bob Bradley.
The former USA gaffer’s appointment didn’t go down well and there’s been no new-boss bounce to appease the support.
The Swans have taken one point in four games since Bradley arrived and are unlikely to leave Everton with anything even if their hosts have won one in seven.
Before the break the Toffees were softened up 5-0 by Chelsea but that was down to the Londoners’ brilliance and I expect them to win at Goodison at 11-18 at Marathonbet.
Romelu Lukaku could be the difference between the sides. He bagged two for Belgium last week and has only failed to net in three of his last 11 outings.
The £28million man is 10-3 at bet365 to break the deadlock and 9-10 at Winner to score at any time.
Everton could be a safer bet than trying to a find a winner from today’s big lunchtime game between Man United and Arsenal.
Both sides will want to assess players who have been on international duty and Arsene Wenger is concerned about star striker Alexis Sanchez who was Chile’s hero at the weekend despite not being 100 per cent fit.
Arsenal look the better placed just but two glaring stats prevent me from tipping them at a best 2-1 with Ladbrokes – Jose Mourinho hasn’t lost to Wenger in 11 league meetings and it’s 10 years since the Gunners won at Old Trafford.
United put on one of their best displays of the season before the break at Swansea but with Zlatan Ibrahimovic banned and Wayne Rooney a doubt they’ll have to rely on youngsters such as Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard for goals.
Mourinho’s men are 13-8 at Betfred but I’m sitting on the fence and taking a draw at 12-5 with bet365 – and it should be a scoring one at 18-5 with McBookie. Alternatively try Arsenal draw no bet at 8-7 with Marathonbet.
Elsewhere Man City should win at Crystal Palace after returning to form and best bet could be over 2.5 goals at 4-6 with Marathonbet.
There should be a cracker as Southampton entertain Liverpool and I’ll be on both to score at 9-13 with 10bet.
In the Championship best bets could be Derby who have been revitalised by Steve McClaren. They are 6-13 at 188Bet to beat struggling Rotherham at home.
My Super Single today are Wimbledon who welcome Bury for the second time in five. On Tuesday their 5-0 FA Cup replay win was the final nail in the coffin for David Flitcroft who was sacked.
Bury have lost seven in a row in the league and failed to keep a clean sheet in 19 – conceded 28 in 11 games.
My only concern is sides often react to a manger going but not always as we’ve witnessed with Swansea. Back Wimbledon at evens with Ladbrokes.
Another League One outfit I like are Sheffield United who go for five wins in a row at home to Shrewsbury. They are 4-9 at Coral.
One side who have reacted well to a new man in charge are Newport. Graham Westley seems to do that everywhere he goes and the Welsh are unbeaten in seven and last week ended Carlisle’s record as the only English not to have lost.
Newport are a big price at Notts County but on current form are worth a look at 5-2 at William Hill.
