Stoke City v Manchester United 12.45 KO Skysports 1

Manchester United have a good record in this match, they have won 11 and lost just one of their 13 League meetings with Stoke City. They have won five and lost just one of their last seven away games in all competitions against Stoke, but Stoke are looking solid at the moment and will record three successive Premier League clean sheets for only the second time if they keep United at bay today.

United have played 5 of the teams currently in the bottom half of the table and they haven’t beaten any of them. Stoke really get up for these games, they are notoriously difficult to beat at The Britannia if you are one of the top teams and are in decent form; they held Chelsea to a single goal for over an hour and have recently beaten Arsenal and Everton.

United have by far the bigger squad, but have been badly affected by injuries and the manager admitted that they were running on empty in the 2nd half against Spurs on Sunday. United have only gone in once at Half time leading away from home this season and half of their matches home and away have either been 0-0 or 1-1 at Half time. Six of Stoke’s home games have had no more than one goal in the first 45. I can see this being 0-0 at half time and either ending as a draw or Stoke pulling off a shock. United’s home form and that of David De Gea is disguising the fact that they have been relatively poor away from home. Powers are running a Money Back Special if this ends 0-0, do I’m concentrating on the correct score and first goal scorer markets.

Rooney has scored five goals in his last seven Premier League appearances, but only one of them has come away from home, so I’m happy to pass him over for the first goal.

Peter Crouch has scored only twice in 20 Premier League appearances against Man Utd but both have come for Stoke, we know he likes to get an early goal.
Robin van Persie has scored 10 goals in 10 Premier League appearances against the Potters, including four in five for Manchester United and is the only United player to have scored more than one goal away from home this season.

My Bets:
(All with Paddy Power, Money back special if the match ends 0-0)

Correct score Stoke 1-0: Powers MBS 10/1
Correct score Stoke 2-1: Powers MBS 11/1
Correct score Draw 1-1: Powers MBS 11/2
1st goal scorer P Crouch: Powers MBS 7/1
1st goal scorer R Van Persie: Powers MBS 4/1

Also considered:
Draw/Draw Widely available 9/2
Draw/Stoke Widely available 8/1

Football Tips

Today I have borrowed football analysis and tips from a guy we have all been making huge profits from.

Mark Foley has been posting his football tips in the Betting Insiders forum since September and he has hit some whoppers.

He has now launched a service and is kicking it off with a one month free trial which is available today only.

Mark has posted up detailed analysis and tips for three matches today and here is his assessment of the Leicester v Sunderland match…

3.00 KO Leicester v Sunderland

Two struggling teams; Leicester have lost 5 of their last 6 and have failed to score in 5 of those games. Sunderland have only won 2 of the last 6.

Leicester have only won 1 of their 5 home games, but have also only lost one; the away form is the problem, in all but one of their 5 home games both teams have scored, but Leicester are struggling for goals, they have only scored more than one goal in 3 of their last 10 home games and only time they managed more than 2 goals was against Man United’s reserve back four. They have conceded at least one in every PL home game and struggle in the latter part of matches.

The 3 goals Sunderland scored against Palace followed 3 blanks on the trot in away matches, Leicester are better defensively than Palace. I can see this being tight in the first half and Leicester should be able to bag one goal against a defence that has produced plenty of errors in recent weeks, especially if Alloa can rediscover his early season form.

Vito Mannone has made three errors leading directly to goals than any other Premier League player this season. The Black Cats have never won away at Leicester in the Premier League losing three and drawing one of their four visits.

My Bets: (Split stake):

Correct score 1-1: BetVictor 13/2

HT / FT correct score: HT 0-0 / FT 1-1 Powers 16/1

Weekend Football Double

Today we have a preview of the weekends football action and tips from Tipster Warehouse…

FA Cup 5th Round

Top flight football this weekend comes courtesy of the FA Cup 5th Round as the Premier League takes a short break. The relative minnows left in the final sixteen will be buoyed by the fact that the “Big Four” clubs left in the competition face off against each other in two potentially thunderous clashes. As Wigan showed last season it is possible for a smaller club to win big in the FA Cup but only if the draw is kind to you.

The first tie of the weekend sees Sunderland take on this seasons surprise package Southampton. The Saints have had a fantastic season thus far and even though they have tailed off a little of late they will still fancy their chances of progressing. However, since Gus Poyet grasped the reins at the Stadium of Light the Black Cats form has improved dramatically.

They have won six games already in 2014 including the superb despatch of Manchester United in the League Cup semi final and they really seem to ramp up the passion in the Cup matches. I expect Saturday to be no different and with generous odds of 12/5 available for the home side it makes them well worth a punt.

Current Cup holders Wigan Athletic may have succumbed to relegation last season but they will have been overjoyed to be paired with Cardiff City in this round and a very real opportunity to retain their crown. Although the Welshmen are the higher ranked side they are in a poor run of form and have won just once in the league in their last ten matches. Wins over Newcastle and Bolton in the FA Cup cannot mask their lack of confidence at the moment and I have a sneaky suspicion that the Latics will take this tie possibly after a replay.

In the all Championship clash Sheffield Wednesday face Charlton. Both clubs have performed heroics to reach this stage of the Cup given they are both languishing in the nether reaches of their League. The Owls are in 17th place but Charlton are currently occupying a relegation spot and both sets of supporters will secretly be harbouring thoughts that an early exit may not be a bad thing.

Although the glory of the Cup is a wonderful thing they may be more concerned with retaining their league status and not making the dreaded drop to League One. This is a tight one to call but I’d favour the home side to make that advantage pay and for the Northerners to squeak into the quarter finals.

The early evening televised match sees Jose Mourinho take his Chelsea side up to Manchester to face a City side that are in an incredible run of home form. City have won 17 of 19 home games this season and knocked in a paltry 72 goals in those ties. But crucially for Jose and his boys one of those losses was a matter of days ago against Chelsea. Has he got their number?

Can he get the tactics right once more and cause an upset? Personally I think that the Citizens learn quickly and they will not make the same mistakes in this match. Their scoring prowess is nothing short of amazing and I’d favour them to progress in an absolute corker of a match.

The first of Sunday’s games is an all Premier League clash featuring Everton and Swansea. Roberto Martinez had until recently looked like he had turned the Toffeemen into potential title challengers but they have in recent weeks proven to lack the stamina to keep up a sustained assault and the FA Cup may prove to be their best chance of picking up some silverware this season.

Martinez of course was in charge of Wigan last season as they won the Cup and he will be hoping that his experience will enable his side to move into the next round with a minimum of fuss. The Swans are in turmoil at the moment and took the surprising decision to ditch their manager the likeable Dane Michael Laudrup in favour of the inexperienced Garry Monk. In my opinion the bookies are being overly generous in their view that Everton will win this one. With odds of 11/2 available on a Swans win it could be worth a cheeky pound or two in what is don’t forget a Cup tie.

The lowest team still in the competition are League One strugglers Sheffield United in what must be for their fans a bittersweet experience this season. The FA Cup is great fun but if they are honest they would far rather an extra 20 points in the league than a place in the quarter finals. Forest are riding high in the race for a place in the Premier League and I expect them to have more drive and desire to reach the next round than their Yorkshire counterparts. Odds of 13/10 in favour of Billy Davies and his men could prove to be like taking candy from a baby.

The big match on Sunday gives an early opportunity for Arsenal to gain revenge for their recent mauling at the hands of Liverpool in the League. Even though the Gunners are battling for the title at the moment they face a side in stunning form and with Arsene Wenger’s men in poor form when playing other big clubs it could just be that Brendan Rogers could get his tactics right and take this tie.

As I mentioned earlier the smaller clubs will see this seasons competition as a great chance to take some silverware but this also applies to the big four as well and with two of Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea definitely eliminated this round those that can remain could reap some rich rewards. This should be a cracking game and I can see Luis Suarez and his men taking this – possibly after a replay.

The last tie of this round is played on Monday evening and features Premier League Hull City as they travel south to Brighton. The Seagulls have won their last four home matches and the Tigers face a difficult challenge if they are to move forwards.

This one to me is too close to call as home advantage and good form should count for just as much as playing in the Premier League. I anticipate that this match may turn out to be an old fashioned blood and thunder, throw everything but the kitchen sink at your opponents type of game which will prove exciting for the neutral and could see the home side upset the odds and progress.

Top Tips

A double for me with Sunderland (12/5) and Swansea (11/2) giving potentially great returns.

This double pays at just over 21/1.
