TODAY'S English card starts with a cracker and finishes with what used to be one of the highlights.
Arsenal v Spurs is the first live TV offering at lunchtime and at 5.30 we're treated to Man United v Newcastle.
Spurs are clearly better than their north London rivals – they've proved that with superb displays in the Champions League against Real Madrid and Dortmund and will storm seven clear if they win at the Emirates.
The Gunners have struggled against Liverpool, Man City and Man United this season but have won their last 10 at home in the league and the previous three against Spurs have been 1-1 draws.
Spurs, whose star men Harry Kane and Dele Alli will be fresh after missing England's friendlies, tempt at 2-1 with Betfred but I'll keep a stalemate on side and back Spurs draw no bet at evens with McBookie.
A fourth successive 1-1 at the Emirates pays 7-1 at William Hill while Kane is 21-20 at Ladbrokes and McBookie to score against the Gunners for the sixth league game in a row. To net first he is 7-2 at Unibet.
Later Man United must beat Newcastle or risk losing sight of Man City even at this stage.
Jose Mourinho's men have won five out of five at home, scoring 15 and conceding none, so it's a perfect record. They are 3-10 at Betfred and 5-6 with Betway to win to nil against a side who have failed to score in two against Bournemouth and Burnley.
Man City are eight clear of United after dropping just two points and there is no sign of them letting up.
Leicester are unbeaten in four since Craig Shakespeare was axed but I can't see anything but a City win although a best price of 4-9 at Sky Bet doesn't dazzle.
Liverpool have recovered well from their mauling by Spurs to score 10 in three consecutive wins and are 9-20 with Marathonbet at home to Southampton. They've won just one out of five against Saints at Anfield but this is the worst Southampton side for years.
Chelsea are a similar price at West Brom and while they should win it's a little short.
Burnley and Bournemouth can edge out Swansea and Huddersfield respectively and I like Crystal Palace's chances of beating Everton at home.
Palace remain rooted to the foot of the table with just one win but the Toffees have just two points on the road and Roy Hodgson will fancy his chances at 6-4 with McBookie and William Hill.
In the Championship there is a tricky card and best bets could be Derby at a Fulham side winless in five. They are a best 5-2 at bet365.
On form Plymouth are a big price at home to Oxford in League One. They've won three out of four while their visitors have lost four in a row. Derek Adams's side are 2-1 at Ladbrokes.
Forest Green continue to climb the League Two table after three wins in four. Back them at 13-10 with William Hill to beat Crewe..
- Spurs draw no bet
- Kane to score
- Man United to win to nil
- Crystal Palace
- Forest Green
