It’s time to throw out your Paderborn jersey and scrap that copy of ‘German for Dummies’, because Premier League football is back!
The joy of football’s return may be short-lived for Arsenal fans though, as the Gunners face a daunting trip to Man City this evening following Aston Villa’s clash with Sheffield United.

Sorry Gooners, but City will be rubbing their well-sanitised hands together with glee at the prospect of facing Arsenal here.
Pep Guardiola’s side have won their last six games against Arsenal across all competitions, while Sergio Aguero has scored 10 goals in his last 12 appearances against the Gunners; including a hat-trick in their 3-1 win in this exact fixture last season.
The striker is 5/2 to score two or more goals here with Betway.
If that’s a little too short for you, then perhaps you’ll fancy this? To celebrate the Prem’s return, Betway are offering 10 extra-special boosts, including Aguero to score all four games after restart at 10/1.
12 of the last 16 Premier League goals Man City have scored against Arsenal have been in the first half, scoring at least twice in the opening 45 minutes in four of their last six meetings.
If you’re backing history to repeat itself and Pep’s boys to run riot in the opening stanza, maybe Betway can interest you in Man City to score over 1.5 goals in the first half at 13/8.
- Aguero to score two or more goals, 5/2 with Betway
- Aguero to score in all four games after the restart, 10/1 with Betway
- Man City to score over 1.5 goals in the first half, 13/8 with Betway
Amongst all the excitement about how many goals City are going to put past Arsenal, we shouldn’t forget that tonight’s helping of Premier League action kicks off with Aston Villa hosting Sheffield United.
Jack Grealish’s days in claret and blue are more than likely to be over after this season, but you just know that the boyhood Villa fan isn’t going to throw in the towel until the very last second.
Betway are offering boosted odds on Grealish to score first and Villa to beat Sheffield United at 14/1.
Blades manager Chris Wilder is a Sheffield hometown hero himself and has built something special at Bramall Lane.
Sheffield United are notoriously tricky to break down and a Villa side that have struggled for goals this season might find it tough to breach the Blades’ watertight defence.
We’re backing under 2.5 goals to be scored in this one at 21/20.
- Grealish to score first and Aston Villa to win, 14/1 with Betway
- Under 2.5 total goals, 21/20 with Betway
Oh boy, how we’d missed you, Messi!
It’ll come as a surprise to absolutely nobody that the little Argentine and Barcelona have taken to La Liga’s return like a duck to water.
Back-to-back wins for Barca against Mallorca and Leganes, in which Messi has scored in both, has made La Liga’s return a very welcome one indeed for punters everywhere!
Over in the capital, Real Madrid even held up their side of the bargain with a 3-1 win over Eiber in their return to action.
It’s worth noting that Los Blancos relied on two defenders to get the ball rolling, as both Sergio Ramos and Marcelo found the back of the net.
Hopefully Karim Benzema and Eden Hazard will get up from their comfy deck chairs eventually and chip in with some goals!
Hands up if you backed Cristiano Ronaldo to score on his return to the pitch… all of you? Yep, that’s what we thought.
Well, the Juventus star went to within the width of the post to scoring against AC Milan in their Coppa Italia semi final clash, but sadly his penalty thrashed against the post in question.
I guess he’s human after all?
While we’d backed Ronaldo to score and Juventus to win, sadly only the latter part of our bet came in.
Thanks for nothing, Cristiano… we always preferred Messi.
Elsewhere in Italy, Inter Milan shocked us by failing to get past Napoli in their Coppa Italia semi-final.
After we’d confidently backed Romelu Lukaku to score two or more goals against the Naples side, the Belgian decided to do his best impression of the Invisible Man.
Inter slumped to a 1-1 draw vs Napoli – a result that saw Antonio Conte’s side crash out of the cup.
