THERE won't be a dry eye in the ground as Leicester play at home for the first time since their owner's death.
The Foxes chanelled their emotions in the right direction to beat Cardiff last week before some players travelled to Thailand for Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha's funeral.
Leicester will wear shirts paying tribute to their late owner in the first half and up to 10,000 fans are expected to march to the King Power where they will be handed gifts and commemorative items.
It promises to be a special, if sad, day and players will be desperate to notch the right result.
Burnley are good opponents since they have won two in 11 and were well beaten at West Ham last week.
I expect the Foxes to honour a man whose loss has been heartfelt although they are no bigger than 1-2 at William Hill.
Jamie Vardy was one of the players close to Vichai and missed a great chance at Cardiff last week. Back him to kick off the tributes with the opening goal at 3-1 with William Hill.
Harry Maguire was another who travelled to Thailand and the England defender is always a threat at set-pieces. He is 15-2 at sportingbet to net at any time.
Cardiff are first up at lunchtime today at home to Brighton and could suffer another loss. Brighton have won three of their last four – all by 1-0 – and that could be the result again.
The big games are all tomorrow – Man City v Man United and home matches for Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal with a treble on them paying just 13-10 at 10Bet so consider backing them all -1 at 6-1 with Coral.
I'd have tipped City to win the derby before United hit back to beat Juventus in the Champions League. That will give Jose Mourinho's men massive belief and he'll take great pleasure on stopping Pep Guardiola's free-scoring side.
If City are at the best they'll be difficult to stop and best bet here could be over 2.5 goals at 1-2 with bet365 and maybe backing a red card at 3-1 with Marathonbet as it's bound to be fiery.
Newcastle downed my Super Single last week so I’m a little reluctant to back them at home to Bournemouth. The Cherries though have won on their two Premier League visits and tempt at 8-5 with bet365. Back Callum Wilson to score first at 6-1 with Paddy Power to celebrates his England call-up.
In the Championship I like Derby at home to Aston Villa and Leeds at West Brom. Birmingham also look a shout at home to Hull.
There are no League One or Two games as we have FA Cup first-round games spread across the weekend.
Most of the league sides will take care of non-league rivals but there will be a couple of shocks and I'll add some thoughts later.
- Maguire to score
- Man City v Man Utd over 2.5 goals
- Man City v Man Utd red card
- Liverpool/Chelsea/Arsenal treble
- Wilson to score first
