Harry Kane to deepen Jose Mourinho gloom at Manchester United
More profit for the column in midweek as Ajax came through for us against Dynamo Kiev. It's another busy weekend of Premier League action and we fancy Harry Kane to put Manchester United to the sword and Liverpool to ease past Brighton.
Running total: +0.71
We are only a few games into the season and already the Premier League looks a two-horse race, with Liverpool and Manchester City looking excellent so far. The Reds finished fully 25 points behind Pep Guardiola's champions last season but did some brisk transfer business in the summer and looked really impressive in easing past Crystal Palace last time out. Liverpool host Brighton this weekend, and having kept six consecutive clean sheets at home look a decent shout at 4/5 to win to nil at Anfield. In Naby Keita the Reds may have unearthed the perfect player to wear their iconic No.8 jersey and he can help them to a third straight win against the Seagulls.
The Tasty Treble
Fulham have enough quality to see off Burnley this weekend and look worth including in any accumulator at even money. A Europa League trip to Greece on Thursday won't help the Clarets' cause, so Fulham can be trusted to claim a first win of the season at Craven Cottage. Huddersfield (5/4) face a crunch clash against Cardiff and after a horror start (nine goals conceded in two games) they can get their their season going by beating Cardiff at home. Finally Chelsea (8/13) have made a blistering start to the season and they can make it three wins on the spin by beating Newcastle. The Blues have a wretched recent record on Tyneside (four defeats and a draw from five matches since 2011) but they've been playing some fine football under Maurizio Sarri and could be getting the Toon, who are still without a win, at the right time. The treble looks solid and pays over 6/1 with bet365.

The First Goal Flutter
Chelsea's Alvaro Morata led the line impressively and scored against Arsenal last time out, and the Spaniard looks a tempting price to score first at 9/2 on Tyneside. It's early days but Morata is clearly enjoying life under Sarri and the Blues, who have scored three times in each of their opening games, look a cut above the Magpies.
The Euro Wager
Hoffenheim have proved something of a bogey team for Bayern Munich in recent seasons, with the Bavarian giants winning just one of their last four against Die Kraichgauer. Niko Kovac's side should get the job done eventually on Friday evening, but they may need time to break down an organised and stubborn Hoffenheim outfit. With this in mind, backing draw - Bayern at 3/1 in bet365's double result market could be the way to go.
The Wildcard Tip
It's an absolutely huge game for Manchester United on Monday when they face Tottenham at Old Trafford. The pressure is now firmly on Jose Mourinho, who is favourite with the bookmakers to be the next Premier League manager to lose his job. His whole mood and manner this summer has been so negative, and things could get worse when Spurs come to town. United have looked all over the place defensively so far, and Harry Kane could be just the man to exploit them. The England striker proved last weekend he can actually score goals in August, and you can get 11/2 that he scores two goals or more against United.
