Spare a thought for those Spurs fans this week.
Before the season started they probably thought January’s repeat of the Champions League final would be a crucial decider of whether the title goes to North London with Mauricio Pochettino or Anfield.
As it turns out Liverpool are 28 (TWENTY EIGHT) points ahead of Spurs, Jose Mourinho is in the hotseat and Harry Kane has just been ruled out until April.

Still with these two teams involved there should definitely be some fireworks. Will Jose park the bus? Is that even possible against this Liverpool side?
If we’ve told you once we’ve told you a thousand times, Liverpool to win and BTTS to score is the best bet of the season and Betway have even boosted it to 3/1 today. Lump on.
As for the rest of the Prem it is a real day for the favourites – Everton, Leicester, Man United , Chelsea and Wolves all playing lower ranked sides at home.
Let’s see what you’ve got then, Betway:
- ROBERTO FIRMINO TO SCORE FIRST AGAINST SPURS, 11/2 WITH BETWAY – Bobby Dazzler scored against the Spuds home and away last season. He absolutely loves it.
- TAMMY ABRAHAM, JAMIE VARDY AND MARCUS RASHFORD ALL TO SCORE, 4/1 WITH BETWAY BOOST – The English boys are back in town and ready to do the damage on a Saturday afternoon.
After 40 minutes at Old Trafford Man City suddenly looked like the all-conquering slick outfit we knew and loved from last season.
3-0 up and cruising, we were hoping that we might even get another 6-1 at old Trafford – can you imagine Bernardo Silva banging one in and pulling up his shirt to reveal ‘Why always me?’. No, us neither.
Anyway, after losing their certified banker™ tag thanks to the defeats to Wolves and United and the draw at Newcastle, we think Pep wanted to make a little statement here.
The boys in blue are back and as good as ever.
Brendan Rodgers we’re looking at you.
The Foxes are absolutely flying this season, sit second in the table and had a home semi-final against a Villa side who are 17th in the Premier League and had just lost to a Championship side in the FA Cup.
Add into the mix that Leicester have the second best defence in the league and had thrashed Villa 4-1 in their own backyard a matter of weeks ago and you begin to get the scale of the upset here.
Everyone I know backed Leicester to put one foot in the final with an easy home win, so you can imagine my suprise to turn the TV on and find Brendan’s boys 1-0 down with 20 minutes to go.
Kelechi Iheanacho’s equaliser gave us some hope but it wasn’t enough.
UP THE TICS
Come on Wigan, let’s start the year right.
Today’s visitors Bristol City are horribly inconsistent and have won just once in their past five games. I smell a Wigan win here.
But as you know by now, it means absolutely nothing unless they snatch victory from the jaws of defeat by overturning a half-time deficit into a full-time victory.
THE CASH OUT
