Cherries aim to pick off United


A packed day of Premier League football on Saturday kicks off with Manchester United facing a tough trip to Bournemouth.

However, the Red Devils can take heart from the fact that they have won at Dean Court on both of their last two visits, although the Cherries are currently enjoying their best start to a season in the top-flight.

Bournemouth to win @ 11/4

The hosts are also unbeaten in their last six games in all competitions, winning five of those fixtures, with striker Callum Wilson having netted four times in that run.

Bournemouth have also yet to lose on home turf in the league this season and offer good value to take all three points off a still unconvincing United outfit.

The teatime fixture is a massive one, as Arsenal welcome Liverpool to the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal v Liverpool, score draw @ 3/1

New Gunners head coach Unai Emery is already making a big impact, with his side unbeaten in their last 13 games in all competitions, winning 11 in a row before drawing 2-2 at Crystal Palace.

However, that run of success has come against sides not of the calibre of Liverpool, who have won their last three in all competitions after a blip of four games without a win.

Four of the least eight meetings of the two sides have ended in draws, with a goalless game in August 2015 a real anomaly in a run of clashes which have been full of goals – including a 3-3 draw at the Emirates last season.

Tottenham to win by one goal @ 27/10

A Saturday evening game is also on the schedule, as stuttering Wolves welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Molineux.

The hosts made a flying start to life back in the Premier League, before losing to Watford and Brighton in their last two games, while Spurs have been inconsistent as injuries have meant chopping and changing to their starting line-up.

However, with Christian Eriksen and Dele Alli back in the fold, you would expect the Londoners to start improving, especially against a Wolves side who have failed to score in three of their last five games.
