Another cracking midweek for the column as our banker bet -- Bayern Munich to beat Tottenham -- hosed up while our treble selection also landed. There's another busy weekend of domestic action to look forward to now with Manchester United's trip to Newcastle among the highlights.

Running total: +£60.90

The Banker

There has been steady money piling in for Manchester United to beat Newcastle on Sunday and on recent form it could pay to back the Red Devils to win to nil.

They face a Newcastle side who have scored just four goals all season and who were laughably bad in losing 5-0 to Leicester City last time out. There seems to be no identity under Steve Bruce, no idea of what he wants or what the team is supposed to be. The Magpies look to be hurtling towards the third relegation of the woeful Mike Ashley era. They are a team who are beaten as soon as they fall behind.

As far as Manchester United are concerned, opinion seems divided as to whether Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is the right manager to lead them back to the top of English and European football? Whatever your take on this, you would struggle to make a case for them not being deserved favourites here and 15/8 with bet365 for the Red Devils to win on Tyneside without conceding looks juicy.

Selection: £6 on Manchester United to win to nil at 15/8 with bet365.

The First Goal Flutter

Everton are winless in six Premier League away games and could be vulnerable when they visit Burnley. The Clarets have made a decent start and dug in for a point despite twice falling behind against Aston Villa last time out. Chris Wood has looked razor sharp up front for the hosts and the New Zealand international is appealing at 5/1 to score first at Turf Moor.

Selection: £2 on Wood to score first at 5/1 with bet365.

The Tasty Treble

Liverpool have conceded in five of their seven Premier League matches so far, so both teams to score looks a decent shout at 3/4 when they host Leicester City this weekend. The Reds shipped three in a crazy game against FC Salzburg in midweek that they still somehow managed to pull out of the fire, and goals should again flow during Saturday's game at Anfield.

Elsewhere, Chelsea will have their tails up after winning in Lille and start as favourites to beat Southampton, but we feel both teams to score looks a lock in this one at 4/6. The Blues have scored eight goals in their last two Premier League games away from Stamford Bridge, but they continue to struggle in terms of keeping clean sheets.

Finally, we also like both teams to score at 1/2 when Arsenal lock horns with Bournemouth. The Gunners have been shipping goals with alarming regularity in recent weeks and while they may well get the win in north London, we definitely fancy the Cherries to breach Arsenal's leaky defence. The treble with bet365 is paying well over 3/1 and should go close.

Selection: £4 on the treble at 3.37/1 with bet365.

The Euro Wager

The top two in Italy collide this weekend as Juventus head to the San Siro to face Inter. Antonio Conte's men have been perfect domestically to this point, romping to six straight wins to sit proudly at the top of Serie A. Juventus though are on the case for a ninth straight Scudetto and look a tempting price at 9/5, especially when you consider the fact that Cristiano Ronaldo et al will have had an extra day of rest after this week's Champions League action.

Selection: £5 on Juventus to win at 9/5 with bet365.

The Wildcard Tip

Tottenham's shell-shocked defence make the short trip to Brighton this weekend and despite the fact the Seagulls have not won any of their last six games, they could be worth a speculative wager at the Amex.

Never in Tottenham's long and illustrious history had the club conceded seven goals at home in any competition, until Tuesday night's horror show against Bayern Munich. Rumours of significant dressing room unrest refuse to go away and at 13/5 Brighton could cash in here.

Selection: £2.50 on Brighton to win at 13/5 with bet365.
