West Brom v Man United and Bournemouth v Liverpool on Super Sunday

Premier League double-header

There are two intriguing encounters to enjoy from the Premier League on Super Sunday.  

West Bromwich Albion will be looking to avoid extending their club-record run to 17 games without a win when they welcome Manchester United to the Hawthorns.

Meanwhile, Liverpool travel to AFC Bournemouth hoping to return to winning ways after two draws inside a week.

The Coral News Team have you covered for both matches this Sunday.

West Bromwich Albion v Manchester United

Man United have found trips to this part of the Midlands quite tricky in recent years. Jose Mourinho’s men have only won once at the Hawthorns on their last three visits. That victory came exactly a year ago when a Zlatan Ibrahimovic double proved the difference in a 2-0 success.

The Red Devils returned to winning ways on Wednesday against AFC Bournemouth and should make it two in two here. They’re 6/10 to collect all three points, with West Brom rated a 5/1 chance. You can back the draw at 11/4.  

Given the Baggies’ recent tribulations, it could be worth siding with United to Win to Nil at 29/20. Alan Pardew’s side have failed to score in their last three matches. By contrast, United have kept 14 clean sheets already this season.

Romelu Lukaku is also back amongst the goals after nodding in against the Cherries on Wednesday. He’s good value at 6/5 to score Anytime, although the Coral News Team like the 10/3 about the Belgian to Score First against his former loan club. Hal Robson-Kanu rattled the bar for the hosts at Anfield in the week and he looks their best bet at 3/1 Anytime.

However, United should have the firepower to swat the Baggies comfortably aside. The visitors on a -2 handicap at 19/4 could deliver a handy profit.

AFC Bournemouth v Liverpool

Last season these two sides shared a seven-goal thriller on the South Coast. Bournemouth emerged the eventual victors courtesy of Nathan Ake’s last minute goal.

The Cherries are 11/2 to take the win, with Liverpool favourites at 1/2 and the draw available at 17/5.

There may not be quite as many goals this time around, but it should still be an exciting affair. The two clubs have collectively shared 89 goals in their 34 Premier League games so far this season.

Both Teams to Score looks nailed on at 4/6. You can get more value on the favourites by backing the Reds to Win this goal-laden encounter and for Both Teams to Score at 15/8.

Jurgen Klopp’s men also tend to find things easier away from home. They’ve scored three goals or more in five of their last six away games in all competitions. It’s a tasty 9/4 for Liverpool to Win and Over 3.5 Goals.

In terms of goalscorers, the Coral News Team quite like the look of Ryan Fraser for the hosts. The 23-year-old bagged against Southampton a fortnight ago and against Liverpool last season. He’s well worth a go at 11/2 Anytime.

For the visitors, Philippe Coutinho is once again priced favourably at 6/4 Anytime. Mohamed Salah should start and looks most likely to break the deadlock at 3/1.
