ENGLAND PREMIERSHIP ............ Liverpool unchanged shock horror!

Just so there is no misunderstanding, I am not putting any of my stronger football selections for today on the blog, any matches previewed, will be taken from "the best of the rest". This will not be the case with the NFL, where all my selections will be posted online.Because the matches are so huge, I feel compelled to write something about the Premiership games, so will start with them....


Two mouth watering ties here. Not much love lost in the first fixture and surprisingly, they do not do draws !

Only once in 17 meetings have these huge clubs finished all square, so you could consider a lay of the draw, but that does seem a risky proposition, maybe this is an option "in play", if the scores are still level late in the game.

United have had the upper hand recently, losing just 2 from 10, infact, Pool have only scored 4 in those games, just once in the last 6. I can see Rooney , Ronaldo and Tevez targeting Hyypia and trying to draw him out of position. Fantastic game in prospect , wher I just favour the away win.
Liverpool team in full: Reina, Arbeloa, Riise, Hyypia, Carragher, Mascherano, Gerrard, Benayoun, Kewell, Torres, Kuyt. Subs: Itandje, Babel, Crouch, Aurelio, Lucas.

The other game is very different historically, with 5 of the last 10 ending all square, amazingly Chelsea won the other five, so no wins in 10 for the Wenger boys ! Given Arsenal's recent blips and no Drogba and Essien for Chelsea, both could settle for a point yet again, which would leave both firmly in title contention and it is certainly attractively priced.

4.5 points Manchester United level ball 2.16 asian line.
4 points Arsenal- Chelsea draw 3.25 general

Back shortly.
