Van Persie to score any time for Man Utd v Swansea – 8/13

There’s a case for arguing Van Persie is one of Sir Alex Ferguson’s best signing of his 26-year reign. The Netherlands international has scored 25 top-flight goals to help fire the Red Devils to a 13th Premier League title. The 29-year-old is currently on one of his goal-scoring runs, with six goals in his last five games. Van Persie made an assist at the Liberty Stadium earlier this season, but the Tipster is backing him to go one better and score any time on Sunday at 8/13.

Over 2.5 goals in Man Utd v Swansea – 19/40

Swansea’s struggles since winning the League Cup have been well-documented. Michael Laudrup’s men have won just twice in nine attempts since beating Bradford City at Wembley. The Swans have conceded 13 goals in their last five away games and face a United side looking to mark Ferguson’s retirement in style. The Red Devils have scored two goals or more in 19 of their 27 home matches this season. So, the Tipster is backing over 2.5 goals in United against Swansea at Old Trafford at 19/40.

Stoke and Tottenham to draw – 13/5

Tottenham were held to a frustrating 2-2 by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night. André Villas-Boas’ men have stumbled in recent weeks in the pursuit of a top-four finish. Unfortunately for Spurs, there isn’t too much encouragement to take from their recent record against Stoke. The north London side have drawn three of their last four meetings with the Potters. And the Tipster reckons the stalemate is worth a punt at 13/5.

Remy to score any time in QPR v Newcastle – 6/4

On Friday, Alan Pardew admitted that missing out on Loic Remy in January has cost the Magpies, who are now embroiled in a battle for survival. The France international has been a big hit at Loftus Road, scoring five goals in 11 top-flight appearances this season. With Newcastle’s defence leaking 10 goals in their last four games, Remy could thrive with his searing pace and finisher’s touch. The Tipster is backing Remy to score against Newcastle at 6/4.

The long shot: Liverpool to score over 3.5 goals v Fulham – 8/1

Liverpool have been hit and miss at the best of times this season. Brendan Rodgers’ men either thrill on the road or struggle to break down dogged opposition. The Reds put six past Newcastle United in their last outing away from Anfield, and beat Wigan 4-0 at the DW Stadium in March. In addition, Liverpool were 5-2 winners in this fixture in 2011. The Tipster’s long shot is Liverpool to score over 3.5 goals against Fulham at 8/1.
