DAVIE MOYES is being tipped for the sack if Sunderland don’t win at Bournemouth today – and there’s little chance of that happening.
Sunderland have equalled the worst start to a Premier League campaign having taken two points from 10 games and there is nothing to suggest they can win spark to life at the Vitality Stadium.
Bournemouth hammered Hull 6-1 in their last home game and will relish a visit from another set of strugglers.
Eddie Howe’s been happier with his side’s home form – three wins in four games – and a best price of 4-6 with William Hill is fine for accumulators.
West Ham have improved their record at the London Stadium with back-to-back wins but face a tough test at home to Stoke.
I watched Stoke beat Swansea on Monday and they were impressive. A 3-1 win could have been six or seven and that followed an equally convincing 2-0 victory at Hull.
The Hammers will have to be at their best and Stoke look value not to lose – consider them draw no bet at 7-4 with Ladbrokes.
Man City have rediscovered their mojo with three wins in a row and will be feeling good about themselves ahead of a meeting with Middlesbrough.
The logic is if you beat Barcelona at home you should see off Boro – only if betting was so predictable. Bookies believe it though with City no bigger than 1-4 at Paddy Power.
Boro held Arsenal 0-0 at the Emirates but I don’t think they’ll shut out Sergio Aguero, Kevin de Bruyne and Raheem Sterling. Aguero’s confidence will be sky high after netting against Barca and is 11-4 at bet365 to break the deadlock.
Chelsea are a much better price at 4-7 with Betfred at home to Everton and that looks about right as they bid to make it five league wins a row. Antonio Conte’s side looked superb as they won 2-0 at Southampton on Sunday and Diego Costa and Eden Hazard look unstoppable.
Both were on target at St Mary’s and to score today Costa is 19-20 and Hazard 6-4 respectively at betfair.
Burnley were battered by Man United last week but held firm to claim a 0-0 draw and return to Turf Moor to take on Crystal Palace who have lost three in a row.
That was Burnley’s first point on the road to go with 10 at home and they are 9-4 at McBookie to add three more.
Big game tomorrow is the North London derby between Arsenal and Spurs. The Gunners have been more impressive of late with Spurs, who are missing Harry Kane, winless in six.
In other games tomorrow Liverpool should beat Watford and Leicester can extend their unbeaten home record by seeing off West Brom.
In the Championship I’m tempted by revitalised Leeds at a Norwich side bashed 5-0 at Brighton last week. Leeds are 15-4 at Coral which means not to lose is over evens at 21-10 with the same firm.
I also like on-form Brighton, who have a good record at Ashton Gate, at 8-5 with Betfred at Bristol City.
Safer bets are leaders Newcastle at 1-2 at home to Cardiff and Sheffield Wednesday, 3-4 at McBookie, should see off Ipswich.
League One and League Two matches make way for FA Cup first-round ties and team news is important when it comes to these as some teams will rest players.
Bets to Consider
Stoke draw no bet
Aguero to score first
Leeds not to lose
