Arsenal are a banker at 8/15 courtesy of Stan James as they head to Carrow Road on Saturday evening to face Norwich and the Gunners appeal in the handicaps at 5/4 with Ladbrokes, when starting a goal in arrears.
Manchester rivals City and United meanwhile, can also pick up victories; Paddy Power quote the champions at 3/4 to collect three points at West Brom and the same bookie marks 3/10 against Sir Alex Ferguson’s charges as they host Stoke.
After a frustrating 0-0 draw against Stoke last time out, Liverpool are still waiting for their first home triumph of the campaign but at 4/11 (Ladbrokes) they should remedy that by getting the better of winless Reading at Anfield.
The Royals’ fellow strugglers QPR could also find the going tough against Merseyside opposition, Paddy Power pricing rock bottom Rangers at 5/4 to slump to another defeat, this time at the hands of fourth-placed Everton.
Earlier on Sunday, it’s the Tyne-Wear derby as Sunderland and Newcastle face-off at the Stadium of Light and the pair’s respective solid but unspectacular starts to the campaign point to a stalemate, a result bet365 chalk up at 9/4.
Finally, a trio of potential home successes complete this weekend’s coupon; at Craven Cottage Hills post 5/6 against Fulham, who tackle Aston Villa, West Ham are 10/11 with Skybet to see off Southampton and Stan James quote Swansea at even money to get back to winning ways at the expense of Wigan.
