HERE'S a good quiz question: Which three teams are unbeaten in the English leagues?

Most people will get Man City and Man United but not the third.

The answer is Shrewsbury who top League One with 10 wins and four draws.

When sides are on such good runs a defeat is usually just around the corner but the Shrews are going from strength to strength.

On Tuesday they battered Bristol Rovers 4-0 with all the goals coming before half-time and boss Paul Hurst insisted it was his side's best display of the season.

For people who did huge both to score accas Rovers might have beaten them as they were the only side in League One not to hit the target in midweek.

Todays visitors to New Meadow are Fleetwood who sit ninth and are unbeaten in four – two wins and two draws.

I always put form ahead of stats but if you don't be concerned by the fact Shrewsbury have never beaten Fleetwood – they've met seven times – and last season lost both League One meetings.

However, form suggests they'll put the record straight and they'll be keen to do so. And the stats explain why the home win is as big as 5-4 with betfair when they could have been odds on.

Another side who look a great bet are League Two leaders Luton who head to Crawley. Luton have hit 11 goals in their last two and 16 in four and boast the best away record in the division with six wins from seven.

Conversely lowly Crawley have the worst home figures – one win and six losses. Luton are a biggest 11-10 at Marathonbet.

The reason I've focused on the lower leagues is today's Premier League cards isn't the most exciting – and many of the games are tough to call.

Leaders City entertain Burnley and may not find it as easy as recent outings. City have rammed in 12 in their last two home games against Stoke and Crystal Palace and netted 29 in eight overall.

However, Burnley opened their campaign with a 3-2 victory at Chelsea and are unbeaten on the road without conceding since.

Sean Dyche's men are extremely organised and with City so short at 1-8 I'd take a chance on both teams to score at 6-4. Burnley are 33-1 at betfair to notch a surprise success.

Jose Mourinho's showed his pragmatic side with a 0-0 draw at Liverpool followed by 1-0 success against Benfica in the Champions League.

United are a best 2-5 at Marathonbet to win at Huddersfield but a better bet could be United to win to nil at 21-20 with McBookie.

Injury-hit Chelsea face a big test at home to a Watford side who sit two points above them in fourth. If the season ended now they'd be in the Champions League.

Watford, like Burnley, are unbeaten away having won three out of four and Chelsea are too short at 1-3 with the visitors 10-1 at McBookie.

Chelsea are winless in three and that includes defeat at Crystal Palace. Back Watford not to lose at 11-4 with sportingbet.

In the Championship I like Derby at home to Sheffield Wednesday at 13-10 with BetStars. Mark Warburton's Nottm Forest should bounce back from their loss at Derby by beating Burton at 4-5 with McBookie.

Premier League game of the weekend is tomorrow as Spurs welcome Liverpool to Wembley. Both sides notched good results in midweek with Spurs holding Real in the Bernabeu and the Reds thumping Maribor 7-0 away.

It's an interesting match-up and there is a chance the sides will cancel each other. If it wasn't for poor Wembley form I'd back the home but a draw is likely at 13-5 with Paddy Power.
