LEICESTER, Southampton and Bournemouth – all have faced the might of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and all have bowed down to the great man.

Anyone who thought the Swede was finished didn't watch PSG last season and anyone who thought he'd switched to England to boost his pension doesn't realise one thing … he loves scoring goals.

The superstar striker has been unstoppable for Man United in a perfect start to Jose Mourinho's reign.

Ibrahimovic has bagged four goals in three games and is 21-20 with Stan James to net in tonight's live TV game at Hull. To score first you can have 10-3 at Betfred.

Hull have been the surprise guys with two wins under former United assistant Mike Phelan, including a shock defeat of champions Leicester.

It was a great achievement but United look in a great place and I don't see them slipping up. They have won 10 of their last 11 meetings with Hull and are a best 1-2 with William Hill to take the points.

English refs have been told to clamp down on dissent and diving and Jonathan Moss has flashed 12 yellows in two games. Consider over 45 booking points at 3-1 with William Hill.

The earlier TV game could be a cracker as Spurs entertain Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp's Reds were frustrated by Burnley last week but will be given space to counter by Spurs.

Tough one to call but the five of the last six at White Hart Lane have gone over 2.5 goals so let's go with that at 3-4 with bet365.

Chelsea shouldn't be frustrated by Burnley in the way Liverpool were but are no bigger than 2-7 so consider Diego Costa, who has made a rampaging start, at 10-11 with Ladbrokes to score.

Leicester have made a stuttering start but boosted by seeing their name up in lights at the Champions League draw I reckon they'll get going against Swansea today. Back the Foxes at 3-4 with Ladbrokes.

In the Championship there are three sides I like. Barnsley should take care of Rotherham with Alan Stubbs's side losing both their away games and conceding six. The Tykes are 10-11 at William Hill.

Aston Villa have taken their summer spending to £25million and should be serious promotion contenders. They travel to a Bristol City side who have beaten promoted Burton and Wigan and lost to relegated Newcastle and Norwich.

If that pattern rings true Villa will win at Ashton Gate and are 7-4 at BetBright to do so.

Blackburn are unebeaten in two now and that will please Owen Coyle whose side survived an EFL Cup scare against Crewe. Fulham are visitors to Ewood Park and having made an unbeaten start to the season I'm willing to risk them at 13-10 with bet365.

In League One best bets are Bradford who have made a decent start under new boss Stuart McCall. They are 9-11 with 188BET at home to Oldham.
