ENGLISH football returns on Saturday with the Community Shield curtain-raiser and a few EFL Cup clashes.
The focus will be on Wembley where champions Liverpool hope to celebrate their first title for 30 years by flooring FA Cup winners Arsenal.
Jurgen Klopp's men are hot favourites at 4-6 with McBookie to win in 90 minutes and 2-5 at William Hill to lift the trophy.
I'm with Liverpool but I'd rather back both teams to score at 8-13 with McBookie.
While Klopp's men finished a massive 43 points ahead of the Gunners they did lose 2-1 at the Emirates after clinching the title.
And Mikel Arteta's Londoners have the experience of victories against Chelsea and Man City at an empty Wembley on their way to cup glory so can't be ruled out.
Last season Liverpool won the Anfield league meeting 3-1 and the sides drew 5-5 over 90 minutes in an incredible EFL Cup clash – so the fixture has been producing goals.
In fact the last 10 meetings between the sides have produced 52 goals so consider Liverpool and over 2.5 goals at 13-10 with McBookie or even Liverpool and over 3.5 at 11-4 at Paddy Power.
Mo Salah is first-scorer favourite at 10-3 with McBookie while Sadio Mane is 4-1.
Arsenal are boosted by the continuing presence of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and the skipper is their most likely scorer at 6-4 with McBookie.
Championship side Preston are fairly priced at 8-15 with William Hill to beat League Two Mansfield at home in the EFL Cup.
League One Portsmouth should win at League Two Stevenage who lost their last nine games of the previous campaign. Pompey are 4-6 at BetVictor.
Michael O'Neill achieved his first target last season by keeping Stoke in the Championship and finished with a 4-1 win at Nottingham Forest that denied their opponents a play-off spot.
Stoke look a decent price at 6-10 with William Hill at home to League One Blackpool.
Elsewhere we have week two of the new French season and PSG's match with Lens has been postponed to give the Champions League finalists more time to recover.
Marseille's opener was called off but they should get off the mark in style with victory at a Brest side battered 4-0 at Nimes. Evens with betfair on Marseille tempts.
Complete a French treble with Monaco at Metz. Niko Kovac's men were held by Reims last week but the former Bayern boss should notch his first win here.
