Gareth Southgate’s England side take on Croatia at Wembley on Sunday (kick-off 2pm), and Betfair have a great enhanced odds offer for new customers if you think England will go some way to avenging their world cup semi-final defeat, by beating the Croats.
This is the final match in the UEFA Nations League, widely regarded to now be a success. It is a winner takes all fixture with both England and Croatia on 4 points. Spain currently top Group A4, with 6 points.
A draw between England and Croatia would see the Spanish win the group and go through to next summers finals, while if England or Croatia win, they would win the group.
The match kicks off at 2pm on Sunday. It is live on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Football, with coverage starting on both channels at 1pm.
Tottenham take on Liverpool later today (12.30) at Wembley, and Spurs will be looking to bounce back after a disappointing defeat away at Watford before the international break, while Liverpool will be looking to maintain their 100% record.
This is the Premier League fixture of the weekend, and with such a big match comes new customers offers, which can be found below……
The news that Tottenham are without the injured Hugo Lloris and Dele Alli has seen Liverpool backed in too favourites. On the Betfair betting exchange, Liverpool are now into 2.36, having previously been trading at above 2.5. While Tottenham have drifted from around 2.9, out to 3.2.
It’s not all doom and gloom for Spurs though, they do have Son Heung-min back from the Asian Games, where he won the gold medal Spurs were hoping he would, and if you’re looking for a good stat for Spurs, Harry Kane has scored 4 in his last 2 matches against Liverpool.
I’m not going to have a recommended bet in this match as it is just too difficult to score. A 2-2 scoreline or Harry Kane to score anytime could be a fun bet, with the 2-2 draw at 12/1 with Betvictor, and Kane to score anytime at 11/8 with 888Sport.
What Time Does Spurs V Liverpool Kick Off And Where Can I Watch It?
The match has been switched to Wembley Stadium due to Spurs’ new stadium not being ready.
Kicks off is at 12.30pm, and is live on Sky Sports. Coverage and build up starts on Sky Sport Premier League, and Sky Sports Main Event, at 11.30am.
The World Cup is over and its back to the day job for England, as Gareth Southgate’s team host Spain in their opening UEFA Nations League fixture on Saturday night, and Coral have a great new customers offer on this match if you fancy Harry Kane to hit the back of the net.
The normal odds on Kane in the Anytime Goalscorer Betting market with Coral is 11/8, making him the favourite. The Spurs striker is also the favourite in the first goalscorer betting at 10/3, followed by Alvaro Morata, Diego Costa, and Rodrigo, all at 5/1.
Kane has got off to a steady if not spectacular start to the Premier League season so far, with 2 goals from his 4 matches played. He opened his account in the 3-1 win over Fulham, and then followed that up with the opener in the 3-0 win over Manchester United.
Liverpool look to keep their 100% record going when they visit the King Power Stadium to take on Leicester City in the Saturday lunch time kick off (12.30pm), live on Sky Sports.
After thrashing West Ham on the opening weekend of the season, the – usually – rampant Reds have had to grind out results in their two most recent fixtures, in winning 2-0 away at Crystal Palace, and then 1-0 at home to Brighton last weekend.
Punters and pundits seem to be suggesting that Liverpool’s ability to grind out a win when not at their best, is a major asset to Liverpool this season, one that they didn’t have previously.
This could be true, but it could also just be a sign that Liverpool aren’t yet firing on all cylinders, and that maybe a slip up isn’t far away.
For Leicester’s part – after a seemingly all doom and gloom summer, when it was only a matter of time before Claude Puel got sacked – they have started the season remarkably well, with wins over newly promoted Wolves (albeit very lucky), and Puel’s former club, Southampton.
Klopp’s Liverpool are unsurprisingly the favourites at 4/9 with Betfair. The draw is 4/1, and Leicester are 13/2. If you are considering a bet on the Foxes, bear in mind that Jamie Vardy (who has a good record against Liverpool) is out, suspended.
I expect this to be a close match. Leicester are no pushovers at home, and Liverpool had to dig deep to win their last two matches. The Reds also haven’t conceded a goal yet this season, although I expect that run to end at Leicester.
This match has the look of 1-1 about it, or maybe a Liverpool win by the odd goal, so for that reason I would be backing Both Teams To Score at 10/11 with Betfair.
Manchester United host Spurs at Old Trafford tonight (kick off 8pm), and it remains to be seen whether it turns out to be the football that is the story, or if Mourinho will end up being the centre of attention with another of his curve balls.
I’m reluctant to talk about the moaning one as all he does is create diversion tactics that the media seems to keep falling for. He has become a master of making the issue about him and what he says, rather than what’s happened on the pitch, so lets put that aside and look at the betting options on the match.
Man Utd V Spurs Betting Tips
With the unclear situation we are currently seeing at Old Trafford, it’s hard to know which Manchester United side is likely to turn up. I can see United winning tonight, but I couldn’t back them with too much confidence given their recent performance at Brighton.
Betway make United 6/4 favourites, Tottenham are 2/1, and the Draw is 23/10. On paper it’s a very close looking match.
Big matches tend to see the best players putting in a performance, so that could see some value in the Anytime Goalscorer markets, Harry Kane is 6/5 favourite to score anytime, while Romelu Lukaku is 7/4.
I’m not planning on going near the match betting tonight, for the reasons listed above. For a bit of interest I’m just going to have a couple of small correct score bets. I’m doing 2-0 to United at 10/1, 2-1 Spurs – also at tens, and I might have a couple of quid on a 1-1 draw in-play, when/if, the odds drift out a bit. At the moment it is too short at 5/1.

What Time Does Man City V Swansea Kick Off At And Where Is It Being Played?
The match kicks off at 4.30pm, and is being played at Man City’s Etihad Stadium.
Despite Man City having already won the Premier League, they are still a massively short 2/13 to beat relegation threatened Swansea City today. Sergio Aguero is out for the rest of the season, meaning no Golden Boot, but they still have a massive array of attacking talent to choose from.
With City always on the look out for new talent, the likes of Gabriel Jesus, Raheem Stering, Leroy Sane, etc, know they can’t take their futures for granted at City, so they can’t step off the gas in matches like this.
The draw is 9/1, and an unlikely Swansea win is a huge 23/1.
Liverpool are red hot at the moment, as was shown in their Champions League demolition of Manchester City on Wednesday night.
A performance that even demonstrated their newly found defensive qualities. Liverpool scoring three goals wasn’t a huge surprise, keeping a clean sheet was though.

Arsenal V Chelsea Betting
In standard 90 minutes betting, Antonio Conte’s Chelsea side are the slight favourites, they can be backed at 8/5 with Betfair. It’s not very often Arsenal aren’t the favourites at the Emirates, if you think that can do it tonight, they are a nice looking 15/8. A stalemate can be backed at 5/2.
Liverpool take on German side Hoffenheim in the 1st leg of their Champions League qualifier on Tuesday, and both Betfair and Ladbrokes are giving new customers the chance to grab themselves some free bets with some great enhanced odds offers.
Liverpool are starting the match as 7/5 favourites, with Hoffenheim at 9/4, and draw at 13/5. Liverpool were in good form pre season, but came down to earth with a bump with their defensive frailties again exposed – this time – by Watford last weekend.
Anyway the two offers on Liverpool to beat Hoffenheim are………..
