Danny Fullbrook’s TV Tips

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


The TV footy doesn’t get going until Sunday where a couple of clubs look to push their own ambitions.

Newcastle v Liverpool, Sun 1st Apr, 13.30, Skysports 1
Alan Pardew deserves every credit with the work he’s done at Newcastle and BetVictor have him as 7/2 joint fav to be LMA Manager of the Year, which I like the look of.

If his Newcastle beat Liverpool as William Hill’s 2/1 chances at home, which I think they will, then they will be practically guaranteed a top 6 place. Papiss Cisse has been a great bit of business and is whopping at 13/2 (bet365) to open the scoring while Coral are 2/1 for him to net anytime. Dalglish’s Liverpool don’t seem to have got it right in the league and I can see a 2-1 home win, 10/1 courtesy of Betfred.

Tottenham v Swansea, Sun 1st Apr, 16.00, Skysports 1
Later in the day, Brendan Rodgers (the other manager on 7/2 in the LMA Manager race with BetVictor) takes his Swansea side to Tottenham.

Though I think Harry’s Spurs are set to win, 4/9 with Paddy Power. They were much better at Chelsea than they have been and looked really tasty against Bolton. I think there will be goals – Coral go 10/11 for 3 or more while I fancy 4 or more at a bumper 9/4 with Stan James as both teams can knock them in.

Adebayor should have scored in the Cup replay and he is 4/1 (Skybet) to open up while a 3-1 home win is what I like the look of, 11/1 with bet365.

Blackburn v Man United, Mon 2nd Apr, 20.00, Skysports 1
Finally, on Monday night, Manchester United are 2/5 courtesy of Betfred to assert their authority at the top of the Premier League with a win at Blackburn.

Blackburn are much improved at Ewood with just 1 defeat in 5 and they’re massive at 8/1 (Paddy Power) to win but I think they are more likely to draw, 4/1 with BetVictor.

Sir Alex’s side are title masters but this could be one slip up on their path to glory. Don’t forget it was Blackburn who inexplicably won at Old Trafford a while back and William Hill price the game at 17/2 to finish 1-1 while Rovers are 3/1 (Blue Square) to score the opener. Yakubu is really coming good for them, at such an important time, and he is 9/1 (Ladbrokes) to open the scoring.

I still think United will win the league, 4/11 with Skybet, and Blackburn can avoid the drop.
