Back Chelsea to beat City, Mane to score in Reds' win at Newcastle

Harry Kane did the business for the column at 12/5 in midweek as he struck a fine hat trick for Tottenham in Europe, but Borussia Dortmund ultimately cost us as they failed to oblige at 2/1 against Real Madrid.

This weekend sees the return of the Premier League, including Chelsea's key clash with Manchester City ...

Running total: -£48.34

The Home Banker

Chelsea produced a masterful performance in the Champions League as they won 2-1 at Atletico Madrid on Wednesday and Antonio Conte's men can put themselves right back in the title picture with victory over leaders City. The Blues did the double over City last season and look a big price at 7/4 to win at home. They've tightened up defensively since that horror show on the opening day of the season against Burnley and with Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata firing up front, they rate as a fine choice on the coupon for punters this weekend.

Selection: £4 on Chelsea to win at 7/4 with bet365

The Tasty Treble

Arsenal and Manchester United look nailed on against Brighton and Crystal Palace respectively, two teams that have found goals hard to come by in recent weeks. As you'd expect, outright prices are prohibitive so it could pay to back both teams to cover a one goal handicap. So too Liverpool, who have the players in attack to cause Newcastle's defence all sorts of trouble on Tyneside. Philippe Coutinho has been excellent for the Reds since his return and the minus one handicap treble is paying in excess of 5/1.

Selection: £1 on (-1) treble at 5.48/1 with bet365

The Euro Wager

Real Madrid's home form has been a real cause for concern and the Spanish giants are already seven points behind Barcelona in the title race. Los Blancos host Espanyol on Sunday and while they are fancied to finally get a home win at the Bernabeu they've only kept one clean sheet in six La Liga games so far so there could be some value in punting them to be level at half-time in this one before eventually getting the job done.

Selection: £3 on Draw Half-Time - Real Madrid Full-Time at 100/30 with bet365

The Wildcard Tip

Arsenal won 14 of 19 home games in the Premier League last season and they've continued that hot form into this term. With this in mind, the visit of Brighton will hold no fears and Alexandre Lacazette will be hoping to continue his dazzling scoring streak in north London. The Frenchman has scored in all three home games so far and can be backed at 12/1 to score a hat trick against the Seagulls.

Selection: £1 on Lacazette to score a hat trick at 12/1 with bet365

The Bookie Basher

The returning Sadio Mane will be salivating at the prospect of testing himself against a Newcastle defence that has really struggled against pace so far this season. Liverpool still have some major flaws defensively but should prove too lively for the Toon here and a 4-2 result with Mane among the goals can be backed at a hefty 50/1 with bet365.

Selection: £1 on Mane to score anytime and Liverpool to win 4-2 at 50/1 with bet365
