Manchester United make the trip to Southampton as they look to keep pace with rivals Manchester City – and the Tipster is backing Robin van Persie to score at St Mary’s on Sunday.

Our resident betting expert is backing the Red Devils to beat the Saints by at least two goals, while in the early kick-off, he’s tipping a tight draw between Liverpool and Arsenal, with under 2.5 goals.

Van Persie to score at any time v Southampton – Evens

Van Persie will become United’s focal point in attack after Wayne Rooney’s injury in their 3-2 victory over Fulham last weekend. The Netherlands international scored his first goal for the Red Devils in style against the Cottagers as he looks to eclipse last season’s tally of 30. The Tipster’s opening bet for this edition is Van Persie to score at any time at Evens.

Man Utd to beat Southampton by two goals or more – 11/8

Sir Alex Ferguson’s side were the most successful team away from home last season, winning 13 times on their travels. The 19-time English champions will look to bounce back from a 1-0 loss at Goodison Park by beating the Saints and the Tipster is tipping United to win by two goals or more at 11/8 on Sunday.

Liverpool and Arsenal to draw – 12/5

Liverpool have a pretty good record against the so-called big teams at Anfield. With both sides not exactly in top form and licking their wounds after a difficult transfer window, this should be a close game. Furthermore, Arsenal have drawn five of their last six matches in the Premier League. The Tipster reckons Liverpool and Arsenal to share the spoils at Anfield is a great shout at 12/5.

Under 2.5 goals between Liverpool and Arsenal – 9/10

Arsenal have yet to score a goal in this season’s Premier League in the absence of Van Persie – but the Gunners have also kept successive clean sheets. Meanwhile, Liverpool struggled to find the net at Anfield last season, undoubtedly contributing to Kenny Dalglish’s dismissal. The Tipster is backing under 2.5 goals between Liverpool and Arsenal at 9/10.

The long shot: An own goal in Liverpool v Arsenal – 7/1

Remarkably, there has been an own goal in four of the last six meetings between these two sides. And in addition, Liverpool’s start to the season has been blighted by a string of costly errors, with Pepe Reina fumbling Davie Templeton’s effort in a 1-1 draw with Hearts. The Tipster’s ambitious long shot for this edition is for there to be an own goal in Liverpool v Arsenal on Sunday at great odds of 7/1.
