Foxes to fluster Saints, Man Utd to conquer Toffees on Super Sunday

Holly Thackeray | April 2, 2016

Super Sunday should live up to its reputation this Premier League weekend, with four fantastic teams in televised action, as title hopefuls Leicester City host Ronald Koeman’s revived Southampton, while Manchester United and Everton do battle in a typically bitter Northwest derby.

Foxes set for a scrap with Saints

Leicester face a fierce challenge to their title aspirations with their next potential road block a visit from Southampton to the King Power stadium.

Of course, tremor-causing home support should be in full swing at the Foxes’ fortress, where the league leaders have lost once in the top flight this term, making them 23/20 to win and keep their noses ahead of the pack.

Having sniffed out four 1-0 victories in their last five games, Leicester are 11/2 to triumph by the same tight scoreline again, after a swathe of their players came back from promising international break outings.

Fantastic forward Jamie Vardy, who bagged a brace versus Saints earlier in the season, notched two in two for England recently, so is 4/1 to fire the Foxes ahead first, while midfield dynamo N’Golo Kante clocked up his maiden France strike so is now 9/1 to net anytime on his return to club duty.

While, wily wingman Riyad Mahrez is always a superb scorer shout and dispatched his own deadly double against this opposition last campaign, so makes sense at 5/1 to deliver the final blow to Koeman and co.

Southampton sneak up on European places

Leicester may have sunk Southampton in their previous two at the King Power, but this time their south coast guests also still have much to play for, having slithered up the table with quiet efficiency and into contention for a top six slot.

With a splitting of the spoils back at St Mary’s already this season another draw is 9/4 to occur, with formerly shaky Saints solidified again after going three games unbeaten to reach seventh.

Lurking to try and catch Claudio Ranieri’s rearguard out is Graziano Pelle (a superb 6/4 anytime) and Sadio Mane (7/4), with both bagging peaches in their previous 3-2 smash and grab win over Liverpool. Shane Long is still a striking doubt for the guests, but the hosts expect to field fit again stopper Kasper Schmeichel, with Ranieri stating a war cry of: “Now we have to ‘fight’. This word is our trademark!”

Red Devils to be decisive in another derby

Manchester United have rightfully come in for criticism of late but, despite their Europa League undoing against Liverpool, Louis van Gaal has guided his side to decent results in big games and local derbies.

There have been wins over Tottenham, Liverpool in the league, Arsenal and Manchester City, so the Red Devils are value at an enticing evens to complete a double over Everton in this Northwest encounter.

The Toffees are usually tenacious in their tussles with Man Utd, but have been triumphant in only one of their last 23 attempts when at Old Trafford in any competition, so seem a better bet at 12/5 to draw than 14/5 for a famous three points.

Toffees can still trouble hosts

Still, with both teams vulnerable at the back, there is scope for strikes galore, as the Red Devils have kept just one clean sheet in their previous five frays, while Everton have recorded just one shut-out in four.

So, Man Utd at 17/5 to win and both teams bag looks mighty fine value, with the Merseysiders arguably possessing just as potent an attack as their Mancunian hosts.

Delectable derby doubles

There are a host of exciting young attackers plying their trade up north and a superb selection will be on show in this Saturday scuffle. So, if you can’t pick between excellent Anthony Martial and rampant Romelu Lukaku, fear not as Coral are offering both buoyant goal threats in an anytime scorer double at a fabulous 5/1.

While, if your loyalties are with the Mersey men in blue, opt for Toffees talents only in lethal Lukaku and robust Ross Barkley both to bag at 17/2, with man of the moment Marcus Rashford and Martial also an option at a nifty 9/2 for Red Devils-leaning punters.

With rumours abounding that big Belgian Lukaku could be on Man Utd’s summer transfer wishlist however, the towering target man is also available as a solo act, having hit five in his past five across all competitions, and is 5/1 to get the goals underway at Old Trafford.
