RETURN OF THE MAC (MOU)
It’s always calm and definitely in no way eventful whenever Jose Mourinho returns to one of his former clubs, right?
Spurs host Man United tonight and we can see this one getting very ugly… for Spurs, that is.
The form of Mourinho’s side was seriously troubling before the lockdown, with five defeats on the bounce, a stark contrast to the results that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s boys were turning in.
United had won five of their last six games in all competitions, conceding only one goal in the process, and Man United to win to nil has caught our eye at 16/5.
United won the reverse fixture at Old Trafford back in December thanks to a brace from the lockdown hero of the hour Marcus Rashford.
The Red Devils have also won their most recent away trip to Spurs, once again with Rashford providing the winner… he’s got history.
Fancy Rashford to score two or more goals against Spurs? Betway have you covered on that at 13/2.
It’s not all doom and gloom for Spurs though, they do welcome back Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min from a combination of injury and military service.
Mourinho has the firepower at his disposal to cause an upset, and we can’t help but shake the feeling that Kane might yet have a say in this game.
Betway are offering 12/1 on the England captain to score from outside the box… tempted?
- Man United to win to nil, 16/5 here
- Marcus Rashford to score two or more goals, 13/2 here
- Harry Kane to score from outside the box, 12/1 here
TALE OF TWO STRIKERS
Before all the fun and games at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, we have the not so small matter of Norwich vs Southampton.
The Canaries need points and they need them fast if they’re to have any chance of avoiding the drop this season.
Crucial to Daniel Farke’s plans of survival will be Teemu Pukki bettering the eleven goals that he’s already got in the league, and you can back the Finn to score first against Southampton at 7/2.
Southampton are blessed with their very own deadly finisher in Danny Ings who has notched 16 goals in the league this season, just one short of Sergio Aguero’s tally.
Ralph Hasenhuttl has relied on his starman to steer the Saints to safety this season and Betway have boosted Ings to score a header to 7/1.

Arsenal fans, don’t say that we didn’t warn you!
In the last Bets Club you would have remembered that we backed Man City to fill their boots against the Gunners and, well, they did just that.
Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and David Silva stole the show on the Premier League’s (re)opening night at the Etihad.
Anyone who backed City to win and over 2.5 goals to be scored, we salute you, punters!
I know that Sterling was a very popular bet for first goalscorer and De Bruyne also getting himself on the scoresheet would have pleased a host of you too, I’m sure.
Another week, another Cristiano Ronaldo disappointment!
Juventus were beaten to the Coppa Italia on penalties by plucky Napoli in a game that brought more frustration for CR7.
That now makes it back-to-back appearances without a goal for everyone’s favourite underwear model – at which point do we start labelling him as ‘finished.’
Juventus not dispatching of Napoli in 90 minutes would have sent a lot of accas crashing down (ours included), with Ronaldo failing to score anytime also ending any hopes of our goal-scorers multiple coming in.
It’s always the ones you least expect who let you down, right?
