Hi guys, so this week I’m going for a slightly different tactic to usual by including the lunchtime Premier League clash. So make sure you get on this weekend’s tips early.
I’m backing three in-form attacking players to all find the target in very winnable fixtures. As normal, I’ll be playing all three selections as a single whilst additionally backing all three in what is a tempting 13/1 treble at SkyBet. I’m hoping that number will prove to be unlucky for the bookies.
Norwich City V Everton. 12:45PM
BET: Romelu Lukaku to score anytime @ 11/8 with SkyBet
The lunchtime kick-off comes from Carrrow Road, and Everton will be fully expecting to seal a draw at the very least. And there’s no doubt that Roberto Martinez will be looking primarily to star man Romelu Lukaku.

Everton’s top scorer now boasts 11 goals in total, scoring in each of his last five. The Belgium international is on fire and I can’t see any reason to think his run will end against an out-of-form Norwich City.
In fairness to Alex Neil’s men, they haven’t conceded that many goals at home. But it’s still difficult to see them keeping Lukaku at bay, especially as they’ve only won once in their last 11 fixtures.
I’m predicting that the Canaries will come stuck against the Toffess. After Jamie Vardy’s run came to an end last weekend, I’m backing Lukaku to continue his purple patch in front of goal.
Manchester City V Swansea City. 3PM
BET: Kevin De Bruyne to score anytime @ 13/8 with SkyBet
Manuel Pellegrini’s men have suffered a few poor results in recent weeks, but they were fantastic in scoring four against Monchengladbach on Tuesday night and can expect more of the same against managerless Swansea. It’s a case of take your pick in terms of a potential goalscorer, and I’m going for Kevin De Bruyne.
The Belgium star has been brilliant since returning to England from Germany. He provides assists and goals. On Saturday, I’m predicting he’ll do the latter – especially if the lacklustre Swans continue their poor form.
It’s hard to know how Swansea will react after Garry Monk’s sacking. But it looks pretty ominous against a home side that has scored in every home game. The hosts have scored 10 in three at the Etihad too. It could be another party as they look to regain the initiative in an incredible title race.
At odds of nearly 2/1, I can’t resist backing De Bruyne.
Bristol Rovers V York City. 3PM
BET: Matty Taylor to score anytime @ 5/4 with SkyBet
In League Two, only Leyton Orient’s Jay Simpson has outscored Bristol Rover’s star Matty Taylor in 2015/16 and I’m backing the Pirates striker to find the target yet again on Saturday as they take on struggling York City.
The visitors have conceded 20 goals in just 10 home matches and also head to the Memorial Ground on the back of an eight-game losing streak in all competitions. The fact they’ve conceded 11 in the last two games alone is another huge cause for concern. Taylor is more than ready to take advantage.
Taylor boasts six in his last three home outings, including a hat-trick against Wycombe on December 1st. Assuming the visitors show the same shortcomings as they have in recent weeks, there’s every chance he’ll keep this run going.
And if the Premier League duo find the target too, we’ll be celebrating some early Christmas cheer in style.
As well as the singles, the treble would pay £140.30 from a £10 stake at SkyBet. Happy days.
