Sunday Select includes a choice selection of weekend football tips that are worth considering for tomorrows English league fixtures however you are looking to bet on the games. With Premier League to Conference selections, check out which fixtures are on the hitlist.
Manchester City v Burnley
Man City have found a way to score goals in abundance despite the fact that they have been without three of their main strikers in Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic who’ve all been out injured. The Citizens have rattled off nine wins on the bounce in all competitions and are the team in the best form in the division bar none. Pivotal centreback and club captain Vincent Kompany’s return to action can only be considered as another positive for City although they have been coping well in his absence; they have only conceded one goal in their last five. At the other end they have been prolific hitting six in their last two matches.
Burnley are competing admirably in the Premier League under Sean Dyche but despite their endeavours are lacking quality in the final third of the pitch. The Clarets have only one solitary win to their name on their travels this season and are heading to a side that has won six and only lost one of eight games at the Etihad Stadium. Burnley have picked up their performances are showing signs of beginning to adapt to life at the top level but the gulf in class should prove too much for them in this encounter especially when the likes of David Silva are hitting top form in the City midfield.
Millwall v Bournemouth
Bournemouth have the best away record in the whole of the Championship having only lost two games in eleven played away from Goldsands Stadium so far this season. Eddie Howe’s Cherries have won their last four league games in a row and sit at the top of the table after going unbeaten in the league since the end of September.
The Lions have only won one match in their last nine. In their last outing Millwall were thrashed by Norwich at Carrow Road by six goals to one only a few weeks after being hammered by Middlesborough in a five goal to one defeat. They may take some confidence from the fact that they managed to hold Bournemouth to a 2-2 draw at the end of November but recent form suggests that they are not fighting with their characteristic resistance.
Barnet v Dover
Barnet look dominant and so does their main striker big John Akinde. He netted a hat-trick last time out against Aldershot to take his goal tally to twenty goals for the season. He will be a big threat to Dover who are far from watertight at the back. Barnet have already beaten Dover away from home by three goals to nil back in September so will be confident that they can do what it takes to get the job done again at the Hive.
Dover will be in good spirits heading into the game after they beat Welling 4-0 but will know that bagging all three points away to League leaders Barnet will be a different proposition.
MK Dons v Walsall
MK Dons have not lost in the league since the end of September; that’s an impressive twelve league matches. They have only lost one of eleven games at Stadium MK winning eight them making the Dons the strongest home side in the division. They have scored for fun at home racking up 33 goals in eleven games giving them an average of three goals netted per game so it is extremely hard to envision them not scoring.
Walsall lost 4-1 to Swindon Town in their last outing to put an end to a four game unbeaten run in the league. They have picked up just two wins in eleven away from home this season. Walsall have the worst attack away from home having scored a miserly seven goals in eleven games.
