Revenge in the Old Trafford air


Huddersfield Town produced one of the shocks of the season when they beat Manchester United in October but is difficult to see how lightning will strike twice when the teams meet at Old Trafford on Saturday.

The Terriers saw off United for the first time in 65 years three-and-a-half months ago at the John Smith’s Stadium as they brought their opponents’ unbeaten start to the season to an end.

But David Wagner’s side are now in freefall and start this weekend’s round of fixtures only one point above the relegation zone after failing to win any of their last seven top-flight fixtures, losing the last four.

United will be keen to get back on track after losing against Tottenham at Wembley in midweek and a 3-0 win for Jose Mourinho’s side looks good value at 21/4. Recent signing Alexis Sanchez is available at 4/1 to score the first goal.

Burnley caused Manchester City some problems last month when they took the lead in the FA Cup third-round tie before Pep Guardiola’s side eventually won out and it could be a similar story at Turf Moor.

A City victory from behind is available at 11/2 which would extend the Clarets’ winless run to nine matches.

Bournemouth are one of the form teams in the top flight, with their incredible 3-0 midweek win at Chelsea extending their unbeaten sequence to six games. Eddie Howe’s team have scored 13 goals in that run and are 49/20 to beat Stoke City and both teams to score.

West Ham can edge to victory at a Brighton side that have only scored 18 goals all season and have won just one of their last 14 Premier League games. A Hammers win on the south coast is available at 13/5.

Leicester can bring Swansea’s recent revival to an end by beating Carlos Carvalhal’s team at 10/13 and keeping a clean sheet in the match.

The match between West Brom and Southampton has all the makings of a grim draw, with a goalless stalemate at the Hawthorns available at 27/4, while Arsene Wenger can get the better of Sam Allardyce and a 2-0 victory for Arsenal against Everton can be backed at 25/4.
