Mourinho to park bus at Chelsea? Back Manchester City vs. Arsenal

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol says Chelsea away is a must-win for Manchester United.

This column smashed it out of the park in midweek, napping 11/2, 13/5, 12/5 and 20/21 winners in the Champions League. Indeed only Basel's failure to beat CSKA Moscow prevented a European clean sweep.

The Premier League returns this weekend and as always we have all the best betting angles covered.

Running total: -£71.88

The Home Banker

Apart from being held to a 1-1 draw by Everton, Manchester City have looked flawless at home this season and they'll be out to make it five consecutive league wins at the Etihad by seeing off Arsenal on Sunday. City have plundered 21 goals in just five Premier League home games so far but defensively they've been excellent too and as a result they are already as short as 1/5 to win the title. They should have too much for an Arsenal side who have been very inconsistent on the road and Pep Guardiola's men -- who have won six of their 10 league games by two goals or more -- look worth backing here to cover the handicap.

Selection: £6 Manchester City (-1) to win at 5/4 with bet365

The Tasty Treble

Newcastle have been extremely reliable on home soil and look a decent bet at a shade under even money to beat Bournemouth at St James' Park. The Cherries look a poor imitation of the side who helped light up the Premier League last season and have lost four out of five on the road this term. Manchester City (1/2) look good things to see off Arsenal while Liverpool (4/6) will have their backers to beat West Ham away. Slaven Bilic's side tend to struggle against the big boys and they've taken just one point from a possible 15 against teams in the top half. The treble pays 3.77/1 and looks solid.

Selection: £2 on treble at 3.77/1 with bet365

The Euro Wager

AC Milan may have won only one of their last six games but the fixture list has not been kind to them in recent weeks and they can get back to winning ways by doing the business against Sassuolo. The Modena outfit are without a win at home this season and the Rossoneri look worth a punt here at odds against.

Selection: £2 on AC Milan to win at 23/20 with bet365

The Wildcard Tip

Under Jose Mourinho, Manchester United tend to play a more pragmatic brand of football on the road and rarely go for it in big games like their teams of old used to. Jose's decision to play safe brought criticism following that turgid 0-0 draw at Anfield recently but was vindicated last weekend as United claimed a priceless 1-0 win over Tottenham. Mourinho's men have scored just one goal in their last four trips to Stamford Bridge so recent history suggests Mourinho will again set up defensively and goals could be at a premium at the Bridge..

Selection: £2 on No Goalscorer at 15/2 with bet365

The Bookie Basher

Richarlison has already bagged three goals for Watford this season and he looks a big price at 5/2 to score anytime against out-of-sorts Everton. The Toffees are in the bottom three and look very poor defensively just now. Elsewhere, Wilfried Zaha could be value at 4/1 to find the net against Tottenham. Zaha's recent form has lit a fire under Crystal Palace and he will be the man Spurs fear most at Wembley.

Selection: £1 score anytime double at 16.5/1 with bet365
