I DON'T like including an early kick-off in the line but it's difficult to resist Liverpool v Arsenal.

Seven of the last eight meetings between the sides at Anfield have seen both score and the respective squads go into the live TV games on a high.

Hopefully the players involved in midweek internationals will have recovered sufficiently to put on a show.

Previous meetings include a 6-3 Arsenal cup win and famous 4-4 league draw and games between the top-six teams have produced loads of goals this season.

Arsenal come into the contest lifted massively by their 5-2 demolition of Spurs and league top scorer Robin van Persie should be fine to start after being rested for the second of Holland's friendly against England.

Liverpool will still be celebrating their Carling Cup win last weekend and this could be a cracker with goals galore.

If you don't fancy the early one consider Blackburn v Aston Villa as a viable Premier League alternative.

My second choice from the Premier League is West Brom v Chelsea. The Baggies were unbelievably good going forward against Sunderland last week and the 4-0 win didn't flatter them.

If they play the same way they'll surely find cracks in a Chelsea defence that has looked ropey for most of the season. Chelsea looked better in attack last week as they hit three past Bolton so I'd expect them to score – and concede.

Next it's Hereford v Wimbledon and this has goals written all over it. Hereford lost 5-4 at Gillingham in midweek while Wimbledon's last outing was a 3-3 draw at Crewe.

It was a score draw when they met earlier this season and it has the feel of a 2-2.

Next try Exeter v Stevenage. After three blanks Stevenage returned to scoring form with a 2-2 draw against Huddersfield in midweek. Recovering from a 2-0 down will have done their confidence a world of good and they'll visit Exeter in good spirits.

Exeter's only blank in five was at Huddersfield and they beat Bury 3-2 in their last home outing.

Finally, look at Crewe v Shrewsbury in League Two. There have been 18 goals in Crewe's last four home matches and they take on a Shrewsbury side who are going well and have netted in six of their last seven.

    Alright Paul,

    do you know which bookmakers offer prices on a particular player to be booked anytime?

    I’m thinking of Lee Cattermole (surprise, surprise) in derby on Sunday.

      Ross, the market is usually widely available for live games but you probably won’t get them on odds comparison sites. Go directly to the sites of firms such as William Hill, Paddy Power, bet365 and Skybet and I’m sure you’ll get a price.
