Leagues Tipped:
HERE'S a question that wouldn't have sparked much debate at the start of the season: Who is the best Portuguese boss in the Premier League?
It would have been Jose Mourinho all day long but now he has a rival in the shape of Nuno Espirito Santo.
The Wolves boss is impressing everyone after following last season's promotion with a stunning start to the Premier League.
Ironically Nuno learned from the master himself when he played under Mourinho in the great Porto side that won the UEFA Cup and Champions League back to back. Now he finds himself being linked with a move to Man United if Mourinho is axed.
For now his full concentration is on Wolves and lifting them even higher than seventh with victory at home to Watford today.
Wolves have conceded just six and and are 5-6 with William Hill against a side without a win in four.
If Nuno is the best Portuguese boss then Eddie Howe is the No.1 English boss – although to be fair there isn't much competition.
Howe is again working wonders at Bournemouth who sit one place above Wolves ahead of their south-coast derby at home to Southampton.

The Cherries are unbeaten at home but odds against as they welcome a Saints side who have lost three on the road out of four and sit 16th with five points.

Wolves and Bournemouth will be on loads of coupons and I wouldn't put anyone off backing the double at 14-5 with William Hill.

Before that we have the big lunchtime game between Chelsea and Man United and while I'd favour the Blues many players could be fatigued after being away for internationals.

Mourinho has lost on his last three visits to his old club, failing to score, and that probably explains why Chelsea are no bigger than 19-25 with Marathonbet – and that's a little short for me.

I'd rather back the exceptional Eden Hazard to score at 7-5 with Marathonbet. The Belgian takes penalties and has netted seven already this season.

Liverpool are aiming to get back on track after four without a win and should do so at Huddersfield. They are no bigger than 1-3 so try the Reds -1 at 19-20 with BetStars. The Terriers are yet to score at home so Liverpool to win to nil is another option at evens with McBookie.

Finding value in the Man City v Burnley game is even tougher with the champions no bigger than 1-10. City -2 at 4-5 with Paddy Power should land or what about Raheem Sterling to score at 9-2 with bet365 after his double for England in Spain.

In the Championship there are series of games that look tough to call as usual. Goals could be the way to go ahead of WDW but I like the look of Preston at 17-10 with bet365.

They have netted 13 goals in five games although only two have been victories. Hull have scored once in four games so will struggle to live with their opponents' firepower. West Brom have hit nine in three and are 11-8 at Betway to win at off-form Wigan.

In League One three of the top four – Peterborough, Portsmouth and Doncaster – are at home and while all should win best bets are Donny at 3-4 at Marathonbet.

Barnsley have beaten Peterborough and Fleetwood in recent weeks and should win at a Charlton side whose games have been goal-laden. Back Barnsley and over 2.5 match goals at 12-5 with Coral.

In League Two best bets are leaders Lincoln at home to Cambridge. They hit six at Port Vale last week and look good for accas at 4-7 with Ladbrokes. Lincoln -1 looks big at 13-8 with bet365.
