Asensio to carry on scoring form, Swansea may pay the penalty vs. United

Di Maria shows off the stars he's played with, Carragher shows Alexander-Arnold as a mascot and more in The Sweeper.

There is another juicy top flight coupon for punters to get stuck into this weekend and this column will be looking to nail down all the best bets to aid punters in their ongoing battle to beat the bookmakers.

The Home Banker

Tottenham against Chelsea on Sunday has the potential to be epic. Much has been made of Spurs' poor record at Wembley but Mauricio Pochettino must be feeling quietly confident following Chelsea's nightmare start to their title defence after they were stunned at home against Burnley.

Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas are suspended for the Blues while Diego Costa is still swanning around on the beach, reluctant to trade his flip flops for football boots as he looks to engineer a move away from Stamford Bridge. Spurs, who looked comfortable in beating Newcastle 2-0 on the opening weekend, can be backed at 11/10 here and look a good thing to finally give Pochettino a win against Chelsea at Wembley.

Selection: £5 on Spurs to win at 11/10 with bet365.

The Tasty Treble

Leicester City lost 4-3 to Arsenal but showed enough in that Emirates thriller to suggest they will be OK this season. If they show the same sort of attacking intent they should be too hot for a Brighton side who look a bit short of quality up front.

Crystal Palace were abysmal in their opener against Huddersfield and following that defeat the odds on Frank De Boer becoming the first Premier League manager to lose his job were slashed. It should get worse before it gets better for the Eagles, against a Liverpool side who have goal threats all over the park.

Southampton and West Ham to draw looks a spot of value at 11/4 too with the Hammers only losing two of their last six visits to St Mary's and drawing three times during that sequence.

Selection: £2 on treble at 7.5/1 with bet365.

The Euro Wager

Marco Asensio looks destined for the very top and the youngster scored another screamer as Real Madrid beat Barcelona to win the Spanish Super Cup on Wednesday.

His performances of late are heaping the pressure on Zinedine Zidane to start him and if he gets the nod against Deportivo La Coruna that wand of a left foot could be worth following in the first goalscorer market.

Selection: £1 on Asensio to score first at 7/1 with bet365.

The Wildcard Tip

Manchester United kicked off their campaign in style as they thumped West Ham 4-0 last Sunday and Swansea's defence could be up against it here. Amazingly, Jose Mourinho's side didn't win a single Premier League penalty on their travels last season but his team this season looks far more balanced and fluid since the introduction of Nemanja Matic and Romelu Lukaku.

Selection: £1 on Manchester United to score a penalty at 4/1 with bet365.

The Bookie Basher

The last two meetings between Burnley and West Brom at Turf Moor have finished 2-2 and with both sides starting their seasons with a win, another score draw is not out of the question.

Selection: £1 on 2-2 draw at 20/1 with bet365.
