Danny Fullbrook’s TV Tips

The Daily Star’s Chief Football writer, Danny Fullbrook, gives his verdict on the four Premier League opening weekend TV fixtures.


Newcastle v Arsenal, Sat 15th, 17.30, ESPN
Earlier this week you could have taken a bet on whether the Premier League was actually going to get started this week. But thankfully top flight football is back, starting with Newcastle v Arsenal on TV first on Saturday.

Both clubs are in turmoil so nothing new there. The good thing for the Gunners is that Robin van Persie is fit and raring to go and he has had a good pre-season. I would back him to score anytime in this game at 5/4 with Paddy Power.

The Toon, 3/1 with Betfred, will have virtually a new team out on display and it is going to take Alan Pardew’s side a while to gel so this will be a winning start for the Gunners (21/20, bet365).

Stoke v Chelsea, Sun 14th, 13.30, Skysports 1
Chelsea and Champions Manchester United both have to wait until Sunday to get started.

Andre Villas Boas’ first game is at Stoke and what a baptism of fire that will be. It is unclear what his starting line-up will be and it is amazing to think there has been no big name signing.

The Britannia is a tough place to go and I think this will end up as a draw, 14/5 with Boylesports, and a 1-1 at that (13/2, Skybet) with old faithful Frank Lampard getting on the scoresheet; he is 15/8 (Stan James) to notch anytime while Coral have 6/1 about him getting the opener.

West Brom v Manchester United, Sun 14th, 16.00, Skysports 1
Manchester United could take immediate advantage with a well oiled side starting out against West Brom.

The Champions were dodgy on their travels last season but they can quickly put that right as 8/15 favs () by winning this game 2-0 (7/1, Unibet) with Wayne Rooney scoring first (9/2, Coral).

Manchester City v Swansea, Mon 15th, 20.00, Skysports 1
Premier League newboys Swansea will have to wait until Monday night to get going when they will take on Manchester City.

For me Sergio Aguero is a brilliant signing and City will make a flying start to their campaign as 2/7 favs with William Hill. I expect Swansea to be nervous and they could be swept away 3-0 by Roberto Mancini’s team, something Totesport price up at 7/1.

Compare all Premier League odds and bet at the best prices.

Happy Punting
