In terms of a correct score tip, we think that there may be a pretty comfortable look to the scoreline. The hosts average 1.78 goals per game at Highbury and have scored in 89% of their home matches. With the visitors only averaging 0.67 goals per game on the road and failing to score in 44% of their away games, backing a 2-0 home win is the way to go.
He is an incredibly talented artist who is becoming very famous. One of the many pictures I have up on the wall is a painting someone did of me a few years ago when I was Blackpool manager. After that I went on and did the Blackpool Tower myself while I was really just learning. It was actually in Blackpool that a friend of ours, who had paintings up at a local pub, said to both Kim and I that we should have a go.
MANCHESTER, England, Jan 20 (Reuters) - The following are talking points from the weekend's Premier League action: SOLSKJAER'S 'MISSION IMPOSSIBLE' JUST GOT EVEN TOUGHER Football managers can live tormented lives at times, convincing themselves that the world is against them, but after this weekend Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must wonder what else can go against him? Not only was his top-scorer and best player Marcus Rashford ruled out of Sunday's eventual 2-0 defeat by leaders Liverpool, but he is likely to be out for the best part of three months after scans revealed a stress fracture of his back.
This would be a big chance for the away team, to push for another good performance and try getting out of the low place.

Smith's side are searching for their first win since the Carabao Cup semi-final second-leg victory over Leicester City in January. The club have won the League Cup on five previous occasions but Smith, who is a boyhood Villa supporter, said he does not feel the burden of trying to bring success back to the Midlands. It's not a weight,\" Smith said. If anybody had told me nine years ago, when I started out as manager of Walsall that I'd be a Premier League manager leading Villa into a cup final with a chance to win a trophy then I would have said they're crackers.
Sheffield have a poor away run but they head to this game on a better run compared to Nottingham. Sheffield have also been dominant against Nottingham in their recent meetings and that too will give them an edge. Nottingham have also not done well at home in recent matches; it adds to their general bad run in recent matches and given the seem to struggle against Sheffield, we will not pick on them for a win. This match is also not famous for draws, so going by recent form, we will stick with a Sheffield Wednesday win.
Burnley have often been seen as a rather defensive minded team, but this season has seen their matches take an exciting turn. In fact, their top flight outings this season have averaged 2.85 goals per game, and they have failed to find the net just three times.

This will be one of the most exciting games in the league so far. BATE started this game poorly but they are undoubtedly the best team in this particular league. They were able to beat two teams to move to from the bottom of the league table to the middle of the league table. Securing a win in this game will make it easy for them to reach the top of the league table. The away side is currently leading the league table with about 9 points. The home side won't lose guard in this game thus, BATE will win with a scoreline of 2-1 or 1-0.

The trio cost the club more than £80m but before Saturday's fixture they had only managed one goal and one assist between them - both belonging to Joelinton. Bruce was forced to defend them after their underwhelming displays in last Monday's 2-0 loss at Aston Villa, and social media was awash with people asking for a change.

When Newcastle won back possession Joelinton again struggled to hold up play, Saint-Maximin ran 40 yards then lost the ball, and on one occasion Almiron struggled to get a shot away in the area when the ball got caught up between his feet.
Stoke had to come from behind to get that point in midweek and are now five points above the relegation places and with a superior goal difference (albeit a minus one).
