Our man-in-the-know is tipping Liverpool and Newcastle to see out a stalemate on Merseyside.
Elsewhere, our expert is predicting QPR to score a second-half winner against Reading at Loftus Road, with Djibril Cissé a potential match-winner.
With doubts surrounding Demba Ba’s future at Newcastle at the start of the season, the Senegal striker has netted seven Premier League goals to cement his starting spot in Alan Pardew’s side. He netted in his last game against West Bromwich Albion and should start despite picking up a slight knock last weekend. The Tipster is backing Ba to score at any time at solid odds of 13/5.
This game pits Liverpool, who have one home win in five attempts, against Newcastle, who are yet to win on their travels. The Reds were forced to use key men Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez in the second half of their 3-1 defeat by Swansea on Wednesday. With Liverpool struggling, the Tipster is backing a draw at Anfield at 3/1.
QPR and Reading are the only two teams without a win in the Premier League. However, the Hoops are at home and have invested heavily this summer. QPR managed to keep Arsenal at bay for 80 minutes last weekend, while Reading lost 7-5 to the Gunners midweek. The Tipster is backing QPR to beat Reading at 4/5.
Reading could make life tough for QPR in the opening half, but the fatigue of going to extra-time and losing against Arsenal should take its toll. Furthermore, Hughes’ men have been drawing at half-time in their last two matches. The Tipster is backing the draw at half-time but QPR to be winning at full-time at odds of 15/4.
With Bobby Zamora a doubt for QPR’s clash against the Royals, Hughes could start French striker Cissé. The former Liverpool man scored a series of key goals in QPR’s successful battle against relegation, including the winner in a 1-0 win against Fulham. The Tipster’s ambitious long shot for Sunday is Cissé to score and QPR to win by a single goal at brillant odds of 22/1.
