Our banker bet landed again in midweek as 2/1 shots Napoli beat Liverpool. However Real Madrid let us down as they fell to a heavy 3-0 defeat in Paris. Attention shifts back to the domestic scene this week and all eyes will be on Stamford Bridge on Sunday as Chelsea host Liverpool.
Running total: +£14.50
The remit for Jurgen Klopp this season is simple. Deliver a first league title to Anfield in 30 years. And the early signs are good. Liverpool have opened up a five-point advantage at the top of the Premier League after just five matches and they can make it six wins in a row by beating Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Frank Lampard's side have been pretty erratic so far, shipping goals and dropping points against sides you would ordinarily expect them to beat.
Rising midfield star Mason Mount also looks set to miss out this weekend with an ankle problem, so the feeling is Liverpool could be getting the Blues at just the right time. Klopp's men have scored 15 goals so far and have been unplayable at times.
Indeed, the Reds have now won their opening five matches for the second successive season. They are only the third team to achieve this feat in back-to-back campaigns after Chelsea, in 2009-10 and 2010-11, and Manchester City in 2015-16 and 2016-17. Liverpool have won their last seven away matches domestically at look a bet here at a shade under even money.
Selection: £6 on Liverpool to win at 19/20 with bet365.
The First Goal Flutter
Sergio Aguero didn't feature for Manchester City in Donetsk in midweek so should be one of the first names on the teamsheet when the Citizens face Watford on Sunday. The Argentine has been in red hot goal-scoring form so far this season, bagging seven times for Guardiola's men and averaging a goal every 51 minutes in the league. He's a 5/2 shout to score first against the Hornets, who remain rooted to the foot of the table.
Selection: £4 on Aguero to score first at 5/2 with bet365.
The Tasty Treble
Everton (8/13) have won their last six at Goodison Park and look good things to continue that streak against Sheffield United. The Blades have settled into Premier League life pretty well but lost at home to Southampton last time out and could be set for a harsh winter.
Leicester City host Tottenham in Saturday's early kick-off and it could be worth backing both teams to score at 8/13. Both Tottenham's away games in the league so far have ended 2-2 while in the Champions League in midweek Spurs will privately have been delighted to get a point from an eventful 2-2 draw against Olympiakos in Greece.
Finally back Wolves to bounce back at 9/5 when they visit Crystal Palace. The Eagles have scored only three league goals this season and could struggle against a Wolves side who still harbour ambitions of finishing in the top six. The treble pays over 6/1 with bet365 and should give punters a run for their money.
Selection: £3 on the treble at 6.3/1 with bet365.
The Euro Wager
Although they had a midweek wobble in Europe, Antonio Conte has started his Inter Milan tenure well after back-to-back wins in Serie A. He faces a crunch test on Sunday against city rivals AC Milan but Conte and Inter look to the pick to grab local bragging rights. The Rossoneri seem a pretty defensive-minded side this season and don't seem to have a 25-goal per season striker in their ranks. Inter have better firepower with Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez up top, and look the pick here at 13/10 with bet365.
Selection: £5 on Inter to win at 13/10 with bet365.
