Goals galore in Liverpool vs. Chelsea? Lewandowski to score for Bayern

The FC crew answer your tweets on Liverpool's weekend clash against Chelsea, the La Liga title race, Thanksgiving and more.

It took a late Raheem Sterling goal to deny us an audacious 11/1 coup in the Manchester City vs. Feyenoord game but nevertheless it was another huge week of profit for the column in the Champions League this week. The focus now returns to the Premier League -- including Liverpool's big clash against Chelsea on Saturday.

Running total: -£71.53

The Home Banker

Liverpool are unbeaten in their last five Premier League meetings with Chelsea and the Reds are a 23/20 chance to win at Anfield on Saturday evening. However it's also worth noting they have failed to win any of their subsequent Premier League games this season after playing in Europe, and confidence must be low following that shocking midweek collapse in Sevilla. Chelsea chalked up a resounding 4-0 win against Qarabag but might be jaded after that long trip to Azerbaijan. Both teams have looked suspect defensively this season so the sensible punt here is surely backing both teams to score and over 2.5 goals on Merseyside.

Selection: £5 on both teams to score and over 2.5 goals at evens with bet365.

The Tasty Treble

Crystal Palace (21/20) look a solid shout to beat a Stoke side who have shipped 20 goals in their last eight league matches. Wilfried Zaha is in great form and can propel the Eagles to victory in this one. Elsewhere Manchester United (8/15) are a tempting pick to cover a one goal handicap when they host Brighton. The Seagulls don't score many away from home and United are a different animal with Paul Pogba back in their ranks. Add in form Arsenal (1/2) to win at Burnley for a treble paying almost 11/4.

Selection: £2 on the treble at 3.71/1 with bet365.

The Euro Wager

Robert Lewandowski has been on fire for Bayern Munich this season and, having scored five goals in his last four games for the Bavarian giants, he looks the logical call at 9/4 to score first against Borussia Monchengladbach on Saturday.

Selection: £2 on Lewandowski to score first at 9/4 with bet365.

The Wildcard Tip

West Ham have shipped 10 goals in their four home Premier League games to date and look very flimsy favourites to beat Leicester on Friday evening. David Moyes needs a result here as the Hammers face a daunting set of fixtures in December but Moyes must be worried with how easy Watford cut through their defensive rearguard last Sunday. They might struggle against the pace of Jamie Vardy or the guile of Riyad Mahrez and the Foxes look a decent outside pick at the London Stadium.

Selection: £2 on Leicester to win and both teams to score at 4/1 with bet365.

The Bookie Basher

Marcus Rashford is a 4/1 chance to score first when the Red Devils face Brighton this weekend and the young England man has the pace to trouble a fairly pedestrian Seagulls defence. Elsewhere Alexandre Lacazette is a 12/5 poke to notch the opener when Arsenal travel to Burnley on Sunday. The Frenchman has scored six Premier League goals so far this season and looks the man to strike first at Turf Moor. The first goalscorer double is a 16/1 shout with bet365.

Selection: £1 on Rashford - Lacazette first goalscorer double at 16/1 with bet365.
