Manchester United’s bid to dethrone Manchester City suffered an early blow at Goodison Park – but the Tipster is backing Wayne Rooney to get the 19-time English champions back on track with a goal against Fulham on Saturday.

Our resident betting expert is backing United to be winning at half-time and full-time against the Cottagers, and tipping Swansea to score over 2.5 goals and beat West Ham United. His long shot is for Newcastle United to claim three points at Stamford Bridge.

Rooney to score at any time against Fulham – 4/5

Rooney will be desperate to open his goal scoring account for the new season after a disappointing Euro 2012 campaign. The England striker struggled against Everton, but the 26-year-old has netted in his last two appearances against the Cottagers. The Tipster’s opening bet for this edition is Rooney to score any time against Fulham at 4/5.

Man Utd to be winning at both half-time and full-time – 4/5

Sir Alex Ferguson’s side have won their last nine home games against Fulham in all competitions – a staggering stat. Furthermore, United have been winning at both half-time and full-time in seven of their last eight games at Old Trafford. So The Tipster reckons the Red Devils to be ahead at half-time and full-time against the Cottagers is a great shout at 4/5.

Swansea to score over 2.5 goals v West Ham – 7/2

Any questions lingering over Michael Laudrup’s ability to adapt to the Premier League were banished with a stunning 5-0 victory at Queens Park Rangers last Saturday. Swansea have carried their pre-season form into the Premier League campaign – they scored 12 goals in four friendlies. The Tipster considers Swansea to score over 2.5 goals against West Ham an excellent shout at 7/2.

Swansea to beat West Ham – 11/10

While QPR were lethargic against Swansea, Laudrup’s side deserved plenty of plaudits for their attacking but effective brand of football. Swansea had an impressive record at the Liberty Stadium last season, losing just four times in 19 matches. So Swansea to beat West Ham is good value at 11/10.

The long shot: Newcastle to beat Chelsea – 11/2

Chelsea currently sit top of the Premier League after their thrilling 4-2 victory over Reading in midweek. But Newcastle will be a different proposition, with attacking talents such as Demba Ba, Papiss Cissé and Hatem Ben Arfa ready to expose a suspect Blues defence. Newcastle are unbeaten in three trips to Stamford Bridge, including last season’s 2-0 victory. The Tipster’s ambitious long shot for this edition is the Magpies to beat Chelsea at 11/2.
