Its a bumper Super Sunday as we kick off with Everton v Liverpool, followed up by Chelsea v Man United odds at Stamford Bridge, as punters pile into a new free bets offer from Paddy Power, who report Juan Mata is attracting plenty of interest from punters.
This is the top two in the Premier League and it should be a cracking encounter as both these sides come into the game following a difficult week in the Champions League, with Chelsea losing in Shakhtar, while Man Utd stumbled to a 3-2 win over Braga at Old Trafford.
Chelsea are the team leading the way at the moment and they are actually four points clear at the top, a significant amount for this stage of the season. The challenge now for Roberto Di Matteo’s men is to stay on top, as bookmakers make them 6/4 favourites to take all three points.

They are certainly playing good enough football to suggest they can become Champions of England. The way they fought back from 2-1 down to win 4-2 at Tottenham last weekend was quite something and they have a great deal of attacking talent on show.
Backed by a passionate home crowd, this weekend is the biggest test of Chelsea’s title credentials yet. If they can come out of this one with three points, many will conclude that they will take some stopping.
One of the biggest positives for Chelsea has been how quickly their new signings are settling in. Eden Hazard and Oscar have been Premier League relegations and if he needs to, Di Matteo will be able to add to his squad again in January.
It is the midfield guile of Spaniard Juan Mata however, who has attracted most of the attention and his two goals against Tottenham last week showed why he is key if Chelsea are to lift the Premiership title this season.
Paddy Power make Mata 9/1 to score the first goal of the game, and that price surely has to be backed.
As for Manchester United, they have had an eventful opening two months of the season with plenty of goals and plenty of defensive failings. Sir Alex Ferguson’s men have only kept two clean sheets in the league so far, but this hasn’t stopped them sit 2nd in the table.
Their goal threat is significant with the likes of Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney supported by a creative and attack minded midfield, and with Javier Hernandez in sparkling form midweek, there is sure to be plenty of goalmouth action as Bet365 make Sir Alex Ferguson’s men the 21/10 underdogs, with the draw 5/2.
With this going blow for blow with Chelsea’s attacking players, there should be goals this weekend.
The winning side could end up being the one who puts in a more solid defensive performance. Both are known for their goals, but which team can stop their opponent’s main threat?
Last year, this fixture finished 3-3 and something similar could be expected from 4pm on Sunday.
