Super Sunday Tips: Another Arsenal win and more woe for Mourinho?

| 26.10.2018

Super Sunday provides the nourishing bread either side of a tasty El Clasico filler this afternoon.

Crystal Palace host Arsenal in the early kick-off at Selhurst Park. Then Romelu Lukaku will be looking to haunt his old club as Manchester United take on Everton at Old Trafford.

We’ve previewed both matches below.

Crystal Palace v Arsenal (1:30pm, Sky Sports Main Event)

Arsenal are flying under Unai Emery. The Gunners are looking for their 12th straight win in all competitions, and their recent record against Palace confirms their 8/11 favourites tag.

The North Londoners have won 11 of their last 14 matches against the Eagles, scoring two or more goals in 10 of those encounters. That chimes well with their recent form too.

There have been two or more goals in all but one of the Gunners’ matches this season. Our traders have an Arsenal Win and Over 2.5 Goals down at 29/20, a Gunners Win and Over 3.5 Goals at 29/10.

Emery has no shortage of in-form forwards to choose from either. Alexandre Lacazette is 23/20 to Score Anytime, with Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang slightly further back at 6/5.

The latter has had the last word in three of Arsenal’s last four Premier League matches. He’s 4/1 to Score Last again here, or 7/2 to Score 2 or More.

Luka Milivojevic is 5/1 to score the third time in five matches against the Gunners.

Manchester United v Everton (4pm, Sky Sports Main Event)

Man United may have displayed grit and determination in comebacks against Chelsea and Newcastle United recently. But reports of a revival in fortunes at Old Trafford could still be off the mark.

Jose Mourinho’s men have only won one of their last seven matches, and today face an Everton side buoyant after picking up three league successes in a row for the first time since January 2017.

The Toffees are 15/4 for a fourth straight success, with 27/10 about the draw and 8/11 for a United win. Everton on the Double Chance may also appeal at 11/10.

Despite finishing strongly in recent weeks, the hosts are becoming renowned as slow starters. They’ve been behind inside 25 minutes in each of their last three Premier League matches.

Marco Silva’s men are 5/1 to be leading after 30 minutes, with the Toffees 27/10 in the First Team to Score in the First Half market.

Our traders have Richarlison as their joint-most likely goal-getter at 14/5 – a price he shares with Cenk Tosun and Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

United will look towards Lukaku at 11/8 Anytime, with Marcus Rashford slightly further back at 15/8. Everton have conceded twice through defenders this term. Chris Smalling is 17/2 Anytime.
