The Weekend Coupon: Big-name strikers lined up to return as EPL gets back into full swing
Harry Kane and Zlatan Ibrahimovic could make their EPL returns as Spurs and Manchester United look to keep pace with Manchester City at the top of the Premier League.
Arsenal vs. Tottenham
Tottenham take on local rivals Arsenal in the latest North London Derby with their three England stars back in contention after missing out on England’s friendly with Brazil due to injury.
Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Harry Winks could all feature for Spurs, but they will be without influential center-half Toby Alderweireld, who looks likely to be ruled out until the new year.
Arsenal may well turn to Alexandre Lacazette to lead the line, with fellow Frenchman Olivier Giroud in doubt.
The Gunners have been borderline untouchable at the Emirates, winning their last 10 matches on home soil, but Spurs with Kane can put an end to that on what promises to be a typically lively affair in the early kickoff.
- Tottenham to win: +200
- Over 2.5 goals: -142
Manchester United vs Newcastle United
Manchester United could welcome back two of their biggest stars, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba both potential returnees for the visit of Newcastle in the late kickoff at Old Trafford.
Both sides head into the match off the back of recent defeats, but it’s Newcastle whose form is of greater concern. Just one win in their last six has seen them languishing in mid-table after an encouraging start to the season.
United have won all eight of their home games at Old Trafford in all competitions so far this season, and against a Newcastle side in patchy form, the smart play is to take them to extend that run to nine in a row.
- Manchester United to win: -333
- Over 2.5 goals: -110
