MANCHESTER UNITED are making heavy weather of chasing down a top-four place and desperately need a win when they host Southampton today.

Ralf Rangnick hasn’t really fared much better than Ole Gunnar Solksjaer and also looks set to miss out on a trophy after a shock FA Cup exit to second-tier Middlesbrough.

United followed that up by drawing 1-1 at lowly Burnley in midweek on the same night Saints were claiming a thrilling 3-2 victory at Tottenham.

That did the Red Devils a favour in their Euro push but now Southampton can do some damage to Rangnick’s men. I fancy Saints to score but BTTS is sadly a best 4/5 at William Hill.

Backing over 1.5 first-half goals is more appealing at 18/11 with SBK as quick starts have been a hallmark for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men.

Things are much better on the other side of Manchester with Pep Guardiola’s men marching towards the title.

City travel to Norwich today and should grab a few goals against a defence that has conceded 46 times in 23 league games this term.

Kevin De Bruyne scored in the midweek win over Brentford but is more renowned for setting goals up and I fancy him for an assist (11/10, McBookie).

It has been a mixed bag for Frank Lampard so far at Everton with a thumping FA Cup win over Watford followed up by a midweek loss at Newcastle.

That 3-1 defeat has left the Toffees in danger at the bottom and they badly need a win when Leeds come calling this afternoon.

Marcelo Bielsa’s men are four points above Everton having played a game more so it’s a massive match.

Going for goals paid off for me at St James’ Park in midweek and I can this being a thriller too.

BTTS is just 10/17 at SBK and over 2.5 goals isn’t much better at 4/6 (Bet365). But over 1.5 first-half goals pays 28/17 at Sport Nation and that looks decent.

Lampard needs star man Richarlison to start firing and the Brazilian is 39/19 with VBet for a goal.

Chelsea are away at the Club World Cup and face Brazilian side Palmeiras in tonight’s final.

The Blues won to nil in their semi-final and I can see the same outcome here. That bet pays a decent 7/5 at McBookie.

The best English game tomorrow is probably Aston Villa’s trip to Newcastle.

That midweek win over Everton lifted Eddie Howe’s men out of the drop zone but Villa have been going well under Steven Gerrard.

Goals look on the cards and over 2.5 strikes pays 7/8 with SBK which is good value for accumulators.
