Andy Gray says back United, Spurs and Everton as part of this 5/1 treble

There's value in the goalscorers as well, so keep an eye on Arsenal

by Andy Gray | January 22, 2016

My treble last week was let down by Liverpool, but I’m backing the other two I called right to do the business again. This Saturday’s treble is Manchester United, Spurs and Everton all to win. That should bring up odds of 5/1, which is a nice tidy profit in your pocket. For goalscorers, I’m tipping Olivier Giroud, Sergio Aguero, Wayne Rooney and Odion Ighalo all to score. An accumulator with those four will get you odds of 19/1.

Norwich vs Liverpool – 12:45 – BT Sport

This isn’t easy for Liverpool. Norwich need to stop the poor run they’re on. Three losses and three goals conceded in each of their last three games. Alex Neil needs to get a bit of belief back in their side. They drew 1-1 in Anfield. Liverpool haven’t won in the league since December, which will trouble Jurgen Klopp. I think they’ll win this one though. No one sticks out as a consistent goalscorer. Benteke is just completley off form, and they’re struggling elsewhere. Keep it tight and they’ll sneak the win, with Firmino getting the goal in a 1-0 win.

Andy’s bet: Roberto Firmino to score and Liverpool to win

West Ham vs Man City – 17:30 – Sky Sports 1

Slaven-Bilic-West-Ham

If this was being played in the Etihad it’s an easy City win. Their away form has been shocking, but it’s getting better. They had a nice win at home last week but they do need to string a couple of away wins together. West Ham have Dmitri Payet back and have been in good form barring that loss at Newcastle. I’m going for the cream to rise to the top though. Sergio Aguero is getting back to his best form again, he could’ve had a hat trick last week, so back him to open the scoring.

Andy’s bet: Man City to win 3-1

Everton vs Swansea – 13:30 – Sky Sports 1

It’s been a hugely indifferent season for Everton. Good going forward but they’re far too easy to play through and a leaky defence. They’ve lost way too many leads, the Chelsea game was a great example. 2-0 and 3-2 up and failed to see the game out. They did do a lot of good things though. Repeat them against Swansea and they will have enough. Swansea did beat Watford but there was too much huff and puff for me. Romelu Lukaku has to be the bet for first goalscorer.

Andy’s bet : Everton to win 2-0

Arsenal vs Chelsea – 16:00 – Sky Sports 1

Arsene Wenger

Arsenal are 19 points ahead of Chelsea. Not even the most optimistic of Arsenal fan would’ve predicted that going into February. Arsenal showed last week against Stoke that if they have to, they can dig a result out of the bag. I fancy them to break this ‘Chelsea curse’ that the Blues have. Arsenal will be a lot stronger than they were last week, there’s a possibility that they could blow Chelsea away. Chelsea will be expecting a hot Arsenal side, similar to the one that hammered United. But a stronger Arsenal attack will be too good.

Andy’s bet: Arsenal to win 2-0 with Aaron Ramsey to score anytime at

Crystal Palace vs Spurs

Spurs have a string of winnable games coming up, starting with Palace who have been struggling to score these last few games. Spurs are coming off the back of a strong week with the FA Cup win, so Spurs again for me.

Andy’s bet: Crystal Palace 0-1 Spurs

Leicester vs Stoke

Leicester are up the top so we know how good they are at football, but Stoke are really really difficult to beat these days and if you do beat Stoke, it won’t be by more than a goal so I’m calling a score draw.

Andy’s bet: Draw and both teams to score

Man United vs Southampton

Southampton are starting to play again, they’ve strung together back to back wins impressively. People can still get at United, and Ronald Koeman knows that.

The stat about United’s home games is incredible. Now teams are going to Old Trafford looking to suffocate them for half an hour and make the crowd anxious. But I think LVG will have a breakthrough on Saturday. I think it’ll be Wayne Rooney to open the scoring as well, four in his last four games and he’s chasing down Charlton’s record.

Andy’s bet :United to score in both halves

Sunderland vs Bournemouth

Sunderland need to win this for two reasons. A win keeps their own belief going, and it also drags Bournemouth further into the scrap at the bottom of the table.

Andy’s bet: Sunderland to beat Bournemouth 1-0

Watford vs Newcastle

Newcastle are playing well and they are in form with their confidence back. Watford have looked decent at home, and they need to find their form again after tailing away from the top half. I think they’ll do it this weekend.

Andy’s bet: Watford win

West Brom vs Aston Villa

Villa will arrive a lot more confident than two or three weeks ago. Four points, through in the FA Cup, and the mood of fans on the rise. The Baggies are very tough at home and they know it’s a local derby, so another narrow win for the home side.

Andy’s bet: West Brom to win 1-0
