24th Nov 2018 | Championship
Everton and Liverpool are expected to win but surely high-flying Norwich should be, while Fulham could get a shot in the arm from the Tinkerman.
We’re being bold with our Saturday afternoon acca, backing both Merseyside teams, the Championship leaders and Ranieri on his Premier League return at best odds of 17.65/1 with BetVictor.
Everton to win @ home to Cardiff (4/9):
Let’s start with the banker because the Toffees really seem to be going places under Marco Silva. They won 4 out of 5 matches before claiming a creditable draw at Stamford Bridge last time out. Cardiff also had a good day a fortnight ago but the Welsh club travel poorly taking just 1 point on the road so far.
Fulham to win @ home to Southampton (7/4):
Taking a punt on Ranieri to have an immediate impact at Craven Cottage where there’s no shortage of talent in the home dressing room. If the Leicester hero can organise the defence then who knows what’s possible. Saints lost their last away game 6-1 at City and Hughes’s job is hanging by a thread.
Liverpool to win @ Watford (4/7):
Several pundits are predicting dropped points for the Reds here but Liverpool are made of stern stuff this season as demonstrated by an unbeaten league record and just 5 goals conceded in 12 outings to date. Watford have had a great start to the campaign but if Klopp’s boys can survive trips to Spurs, Arsenal and Chelsea they’ll be ok here.
Norwich to win @ Swansea (2/1):
This one catches the eye because you don’t expect to see in-form table-toppers priced up as 2/1 underdogs! The Canaries have won 5 on the bounce in the Championship netting 8 goals in the last 2 fixtures. Swansea are improving but there’s no reason to think they are better than their opponents after their significant summer sales.
