Title Rivals go Head-to-Head

With reigning champions Manchester City on Club World Cup duty, Liverpool and Arsenal have the chance to strengthen their respective title claims this weekend. 
The odds on the top football betting sites give Liverpool the edge, but the Gunners will fancy their chances of taking something from the game.

Goals on the Cards Once Again

Having exploited the over 1.5 goals market with a winning tip last weekend, the latest round of matches offers another chance to go to the well.
