Jose Mourinho faces more Watford woe with Manchester United
The column drew a blank at the weekend but redemption could be just around the corner with a full program of midweek Premier League games -- including Manchester City's home clash with Southampton.

The Home Banker
Pep Guardiola may be busy playing down Manchester City's prospects of finishing the season unbeaten but who is going to stop them? Eight points clear at the top of the table with goal options all over the park, they are heavy odds on to beat Southampton on Wednesday evening. The bet here could be backing City to win to nil. They've kept seven clean sheets so far in the Premier League and are an even money shout to keep the Saints out.
The Tasty Treble
Can Tottenham be trusted at odds on to turn Leicester over after toiling against West Brom at the weekend? Mauricio Pochettino's men have excelled in Europe but have slipped off the pace domestically. It won't be easy but they've punched out some fabulous results away from home this season and might be too good for an inconsistent Foxes outfit. Liverpool look a solid enough shout at 4/7 to win at Stoke while there might be some value in backing the draw when Brighton host a resurgent Crystal Palace. The treble is available at almost 8/1 with bet365.
The Euro Wager
Paris Saint-Germain are running away with Ligue 1 and are also top scorers in the Champions League. They are a virtually unbackable 1/33 on to beat Troyes at home on Wednesday, but Edison Cavani looks a fair shout at 5/6 to score two or more for the Parisian giants. Cavani has scored seven in his last four games and has looked razor sharp in front of goal this season.
The Wildcard Tip
Manchester United were largely unimpressive in their 1-0 win over Brighton at the weekend and in-form Watford look live underdogs here at bigger than 4/1. The Hornets beat Jose Mourinho's men 3-1 at Vicarage Road last season and will fancy their chances of doing a number on them again, with Richarlison pulling the strings for the hosts.
The Bookie Basher
Everton have won just one in seven since David Unsworth took temporary charge and are just two points clear of the bottom three as things stand. West Ham are third bottom and in a real scrap for survival after a nightmare start. It's a huge game at Goodison and it could be a cautious, cagey affair. No goalscorer is an 8/1 chance and could be worth a punt with both teams aware this is a "must not lose" fixture.
