Super Sunday throws up a North London vs Merseyside Battle
Super Sunday looks set to be a cracker as North London faces Merseyside with two tremendous matches in prospect. Wayne Rooney’s late penalty rescued a point for the Toffees at the AMEX stadium on Sunday but Ronald Koeman’s side continue to underperform this season despite their summer spending.
They host an Arsenal side who have been poor on the road so far this season and slipped up at Vicarage Road on October 14, with Tom Cleverley’s header snatching all three points for the Hornets. The Gunners have scored just once on the road so far this campaign and will need to start picking up points away from home if they are to return to the top four. Top UK bookmakers such as 888Sport have priced Arsenal up as even-money favourites despite their troubles on their travels this campaign.
Liverpool put in a swashbuckling performance against Maribor on October 17, hitting seven past the Slovenian champions and Jurgen Klopp must ensure it isn’t a case of after the Lord Mayor’s show when they visit Wembley in the later kickoff.
Spurs may not have fully acclimatised to life at the national stadium yet but they will be full of confidence after holding Real Madrid to a 1-1 draw at the Bernabeu. It’s the first of two difficult games for Mauricio Pochettino’s side, who visit Old Trafford to face Manchester United on October 28 and they will be aiming to make it successive victories at their temporary home when hosting Liverpool. bet365 have priced the North London outfit up as 11/10 favourites for this clash, with the Reds chalked up at 23/10 for yet more success against fellow top-six opposition.
