City can cope without KDB


Sunday’s programme shows three Premier League games, with the main talking point just how Manchester City will cope without the injured Kevin de Bruyne.

The Citizens play host to Huddersfield Town shorn of the services of Belgian playmaker De Bruyne, who faces around three months out of action due to a knee injury.

Total goals Under 2.5 – 21/10

Last season the meeting of these two sides at the Etihad Stadium finished goalless and the hosts will be eager to avoid a repeat of that result, with Gabriel Jesus being tipped to start in attack in place of Sergio Aguero.

Premier League champions City will surely get on the scoresheet this time around, but goals may still be at a premium against a Terriers outfit who are always dogged, although whether they have the firepower needed to respond if they do concede is open to serious question.

Kicking off at the same time as City and Town are Burnley and Watford, who meet at Turf Moor three days after the hosts were involved in Europa League action.

Burnley to win to zero – 12/5

The Clarets have won their last two top-flight games at home to the Hornets without conceding a goal, having won 1-0 last season and 2-0 in September 2016.

However, another tight game appears to be in prospect, with the Lancastrians having only scored once in their last three games, that arriving via Jack Cork in extra-time of the Thursday evening 109 win over Istanbul Basaksehir.

One goal might be enough to do the trick on Sunday as well, with Burnley always rugged and organised at the back under the astute leadership of head coach Sean Dyche.

Paul Pogba to score at any time – 59/20

The late game sees Brighton play host to Manchester United at the Amex Stadium, with both league meetings of these two sides last season having been won 1-0 by the home side.

The Red Devils began their league campaign with a 2-1 win over Leicester City, with World Cup winner Paul Pogba taking on the responsibility of captaincy and calmly converting the opening goal from the penalty spot.

Should he maintain that level of performance, then the France schemer could finally be ready to justify the world record fee which brought him back to Old Trafford for a second spell.
