Back Alexis Sanchez to give Arsene Wenger a farewell poke in the eye.
Wenger’s happy ending is already going slightly wonky, though on the upside this should be his last trip to the cursed Old Trafford (4.30pm).
It’s been 13 and a half years since Wenger’s Invincibles got bullied to tears there, ending their historic unbeaten run.
It was auld Fergie who suffered the glancing blow from a slice of pepperoni stuffed-crust in the tunnel afterwards.
But it was poor Arsene who never really got the stain out.
A decade or so of gossamer-winged Wenger sides later… and Arsenal are 15/2 today.
That almost rates them in the Stoke-at-Anfield class. No wonder Sanchez was out the door.
The Chilean is blooming again for Manchester United , full of the old scurry. Arsenal’s first-choice defence is leaky. Heaven help the second string if Wenger does the Europa shuffle.
Sanchez at 17/10 (Paddy) ‘anytime scorer’ is right.
If champions Manchester City are wearing their scoring boots at the Boris Blunderdome today, leaky West Ham are booked in for an old-fashioned shoeing.
But a mass outbreak of flip-flops in a World Cup year has to be a genuine concern for anyone pondering some very thin City prices.
Punters are left trying to guess what might get a millionaire footballer out of bed in the morning. Though there’s surely at least one Etihad star we can trust to turn up for work (2.15pm).
Germany’s Leroy Sane has probably still got some grafting to do if he wants to upgrade his Russia ticket to first-class.
Get on Sane ‘first goalscorer’ each-way at 6/1 (Bet365).
Two reasons to swerve Harry Kane when Tottenham entertain Watford tomorrow night (8pm).
One, the England goalmachine is looking a bit leggy. Two, his prices have been shrunk beyond a joke.
My forecasts rate this one a bit more goal-lite than advertised. The value could be the 15/8 ‘UNDER 2.5 total goals’.
So far, you’d have collected in 11 of Spurs’ 16 Prem homes, and in 11 of their 25 domestic wins all told.
Last week: Winners at 3/1 and 10/11
