There's no doubt some chickens came home to roost for Manchester United last weekend. Not only were they well beaten by Southampton in the end - they failed to get a shot on target at home.

Louis van Gaal was in prickely mood this week when it was pointed out he has exactly the same points as David Moyes had this time last season - and we all know what happened to him. Yet there is hardly a murmer from Old Trafford that things are not going well.

Robin Van Persie remains out of sorts and too much is put on Wayne Rooney to deliver.

United look poor value at odds-on to get back to winning ways at QPR.

If it was based on home form the Londoners would be a top half side but defeat at Burnley last week- their 10th straight away loss has dumped them back in the bottom three with a tough run of fixtures to come.

United though have won just two on the road and taking a short price is a no no - better back QPR draw no bet or on the Asian.

Liverpool are another odds-on away shot but opponents Aston Villa don't have QPR's home resolve. Villa have won just two from ten at Villa Park and haven't scored in over seven hours of football.

Liverpool's leaky back line might be just what they need. The best bet is both teams to score given that Villa must surely find the net soon.

Chelsea make it three odds-on aways on Saturday with a trip to Swansea minus Wilfied Bony - sold to Man City for £28 million this week. That is a big loss and whislt we think Chelsea will win, at 4/7 they are not a bet.

Those looking for some value could do worse than take Stoke at 2/1 Boyles to end Leicester City's recent run. Stoke battered the Foxes at the Britannia with 65% possession and lost 1-0! Revenge is on the cards.

Alan Pardew has Palace on song from the off and they might just edge Burnley in a tight encounter at 9/4 Corals.

The Tottenham v Sunderland game is of real interest if Jermaine Defoe - recently signed by the Black Cats gets a start at his old club. Sunderland have drawn too many and a couple of defeats has thrown them into the mire. This looks a tough assignment but with only 2 away defeats back them geting 1.25 goals on the Asian.

We have dealt with Newcastle v Southampton in the members area.
