I'M not messing about with the English Premier League card this weekend – it looks tough to pick winners so I'm firing on a weighty double on Man Utd and Chelsea.
United entertain Hull full of confidence after last week's smash-and-grab win at Arsenal and Chelsea must feel they take on anyone after smashing Schalke 5-0 away in the Champions League.
Hull weren't one of the sides to take advantage of Davie Moyes's hospitality last season and Steve Bruce's men last won at Old Trafford in 1952. Bruce hasn't beaten the team he played for in 20 battles as a boss and I don't see that record changing today.
Jose Mourinho's men lost to Sunderland in the Capital One Cup last season and crashed to them in the league at Stamford Bridge while winning 4-3 in a Stadium of Light thriller.
But this season it's a different Chelsea – one that refuses to be beaten and has added quality through Diego Costa and Cesc Fabregas while Eden Hazard is one of the world's best on the day.
Odds-on aways in the top flight are tough to back but even at 2-5 (various) I want a piece of Chelsea.
Back Rooney to score first for United and look at Costa for Chelsea assuming he's not rested. The double returns 17-1 at bet365.
Elsewhere in the Premier League Liverpool need to start picking up points and should see off Stoke at home.
The Reds were better away to Ludogorets in the Champions League in midweek and face a side who were beaten at home to Burnley last week. Stoke haven't won in 35 visits to Anfield and this won't be their day with news a bug has visited the camp so they may be without players too.
If Liverpool don't tickle your fancy at a biggest 8-11 at bet365 what about Rickie Lambert to score first at 9-1 (various). The ex-Southampton star is off and running at last after netting against Crystal Palace last week and the Bulgarians on Wednesday.
I was impressed by Swansea as they crashed 2-1 at Man City last week and the Welsh look a decent bet at 5-6 with bet365 at home to Palace who have won just once on the road.
Arsenal face West Brom in the early game and I'm not taking the Gunners at odds on even I feel they'll edge it.
Aston Villa played better in holding Southampton on Monday and travel to a Burnley side who won at Stoke last weekend. Again I'm leaving it out.
QPR v Leicester looks a draw or a narrow home win and I can't split in-form pair West Ham and Newcastle.
Rooney/Costa first-scorer double
