Our betting expert Jones Knows sees more problems for Manchester United at home to Southampton but thinks Luke Shaw is overpriced for an assist at 4/1.
Sheffield United vs West Bromwich Albion, Tuesday 6pm (Play Super 6 to win £250,000)
The market has moved very strongly in favour with Sheffield United ahead of this, arguably, season-defining match for both teams. But, it’s moved too far.
The introduction of Mbaye Niang at half time against Fulham completely transformed the Baggies. He led the line brilliantly, linking with the very dangerous Matheus Pereira and created three chances for his teammates in 45 minutes. I’d say with those two in tandem, they carry the greater attacking threat of these two teams.
It’s hard not to factor in heavily Sheffield United’s weakness from defending set-pieces too when shaping up this match-up. Chris Wilder’s boys have shipped seven from such situations this season and Ayermic Laporte and Ruben Dias both registered shots on Aaron Ramsdale’s goal in the weekend defeat at City.
Sam Allardyce will be exploiting this at every opportunity with Semi Ajayi (three goals since Allardyce took over) and Kyle Bartley (scored at the weekend) both given licence to go forward from every set piece or long throw delivered by Darnell Furlong. Bartley to have a header on target at 11/1 makes appeal with Sky Bet.
The Baggies are a big price for an away win here at 100/30.
JONES KNOWS PREDICTS: 1-2 (10/1 with Sky Bet)

Wolves vs Arsenal, Tuesday 6pm (Play Super 6 to win £250,000)
After an 80-game run of no 0-0 draws at home, Arsenal now have seen two in their last three matches at The Emirates. Mikel Arteta’s style is still heavily defensive focused which is by no means a bad thing in the long run. For years Arsenal have craved being hard to beat and Arteta may have just solved that problem. This pragmatic approach does make them tough to watch at…
