In partnership with SetantaBet, 7Cantonas.com brings you “Tonge’s Tips”, a look ahead to the Premier League games with a bit of a twist. This season, Alan, the 7Cantonas team and the good fellows over at GGMU are going head to head in their predictions, and want you, our readers, to join in.
Alan : A tough away fixture this one. The majority of teams who come into the Premier League in their first season seem to over achieve? I guess this is down to the zest, excitement and enthusiasm that the club brings with them and we are certainly in for a hard game. We are finding it difficult (for some reason?) to reproduce the early season brilliance with quite a few “ugly wins” over the past few weeks. Anyway, set aside from this, we’re Manchester United and we certainly won’t be fearful of Swansea City! I am going to go for a hard earned 2-0 victory (5/1 with SetantaBet).
For the bonus bet, I’m going for Norwich to frustrate Arsenal in the early Saturday kick off and pinch a point off them. I’ll go for a 1-1 in this one (6/1 with SetantaBet).
Mart : Welcome back! After what seems like forever since United last played, England have been crowned the World Champions after beating Spain at Wembley on Saturday, United travel to South Wales to face Swansea who boast an impressive unbeaten home record this season.
United who have ground out 1-0 victories in their last two league games will be looking to carry on a 4 game unbeaten run but will have to work hard to take home the three points. United don’t have the best record against Swansea in league games, United and Swansea sharing 6 wins each.
United haven’t conceded in their last 4 games and I see us carrying on this run, I’m backing United to pick up the 3 points in a tight 1-0 victory with Wayne Rooney bagging the only goal. (United to win 1-0 is 5-1 with SetantaBet)
In Sunday’s afternoon kick off, Liverpool travel to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea. Liverpool, who have had an indifferent away record so far will be looking to change that and I can see them grabbing a share of the points in a 2-2 draw. (14/2 with SetantaBet)
Tom @ GGMU : United’s trip to the Liberty Stadium to face Swansea on Saturday has all the makings of banana skin. The newly promoted side have acquitted themselves admirably thus far in the Premier League and lie in tenth position in the table – quite impressive really. Brendan Rogers has his team playing for each other and playing some good football to boot. Sinclair has caught the eye in midfield, among others. With the talent at Fergie’s disposal, you would always fancy United however, although it won’t be easy. United’s movement and pace up front should pose plenty of problems for the Swansea defence and I fancy us to nick a couple of goals in a tough encounter.
Prediction: Swansea 1 – 2 United (13/2 with SetantaBet).
Bonus Bet: Bobby Zamora to score anytime against Sunderland @ 13/8.
