Roll-up for Gylfi Sigurdsson to get Arsenal fans huffing and puffing at the Emirates this afternoon.
The Gunners shuffled the pack for the Europa League on Thursday, showed plenty of graft and polish – then let in two goals in the last 20 minutes when 4-0 up.
Back to the first-choice Arsenal backline today (4pm) but Everton will still fancy their chances of goals, with Richarlison returned from his ban.
Everton ’s defence remains an accident black spot too, so the scorer punt to have first is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at 5/6 (Coral) .
The trouble here for the Toffees’ zonal theory of ‘marking space’ is that the lightspeed Gunner can be in two places at once and still get back before he left.
Big-price fans want Sigurdsson ‘anytime’ at 6/1 (Fred) .
In the last two years big-game Siggy’s scored for underdogs at the Etihad, Emirates, Old Trafford and Anfield.
Trust streaky Willian to bring home the bacon for Chelsea at West Ham (1.30pm).
The brilliant Brazilian seems to be entering another of his phases of fizzing form. He’s unplayable in the right mood, and with Eden Hazard back to wave him through with his wand, it looks grim for the injury-hit Hammers.
Split a stake and back Willian ‘anytime scorer’ at the general 2/1 and ‘first scorer’ at 7/1 (Boylesport) .
Strictly Come Dancing has returned to remind us all that we’re another year closer to the grave.
And what a series they’ve got lined up.
That bloke possibly from a hospital thing is in it. And there’s one of the girls from S Club 7, except it wasn’t them. And a YouTube, who you might describe as a bit of a ‘Marmite personality’, if Marmite makes you feel tired and irritable.
Assuming she got through last night’s live opener in good order, I fancy inspirational Katie Piper at 20/1 (Unibet) to ‘go on a journey’ with the nation’s fiver tucked in her spanx.
She’s got a good partner, a good vibe and will soon be hoofing like a good ‘un too if I’m any judge.
That said, I thought the foxtrots were something you got from eating roadkill. Small stakes.
Last week: Winner at 11/5
