Premier League odds and betting tips
One of football’s most bitter rivalries, full of bile and spite, is renewed – and what a jolly-up it could be for punters.
The animosity between Manchester United and Leeds United (4.30pm) has simmered on, but it’s been nearly 11 years since the Yorkshire side were last at Old Trafford, shocking the then reigning champions 1-0.
Sir Alex Ferguson, chasing a fourth straight title, might have thought his side really had bigger fish to fry than the FA Cup third round that season. As it turned out, they really didn’t.
The chances of United dishing up a belated revenge battering here are surely increased by Leeds’ commitment to the full-wallop vibe of Marcelo Bielsa. The bucket-squatting genius is all about the hit-or-bust.
Back Bruno Fernandes ‘anytime scorer’ at the widespread 6/5.
Leeds’ set-piece frailty suggests a bit of Harry Maguire ‘anytime’ at an almost-fair 17/2 (Bet365) too.
Brendan Rodgers drew hurtful ridicule a few years back when a TV documentary showed he had a painting of himself on his wall at home. Thank goodness Jose Mourinho’s subterranean gallery of waxwork Joses remains the best kept secret in football.
The cat’s out the bag on Tottenham ’s title credentials, but the shapes are murky for Leicester ’s visit (2.15pm) – back a DRAW at the general 5/2 .
Same DRAW call at 14/5 for Sheffield United at Brighton (12pm), the least mouthwatering brunch ever.

Villa found the cupboard bare against Burnley in midweek, but created so many chances you have to fear for West Brom (7.15pm).
Jack Grealish is the call at 23/10 (BetVic, Skybet) ‘anytime scorer’ to give us a lift, or at least share an Uber.
In Spain, bet NO ‘both teams score’ at Evens (BetVic) when reborn Real Madrid go to goal-shy Eibar in La Liga (8pm).
Last week: Winners at 17/10 and 5/6
