Paul Robinson is aiming to take you into the Christmas weekend on a win and today's Daily Acca pays 13/2. Here are his selections:

- Back Over 2.5 Goals in Cagliari v Fiorentina @ 8/11
- Back BTTS in Norwich v Brentford @ 8/15
- Back Liverpool @ 15/8

The Acca pays approximately 13/2

Bet 1: Back Over 2.5 Goals in Cagliari v Fiorentina @ 8/11 - KO 19:45 GMT

We begin in Serie A as I expect plenty of goals between Cagliari and Fiorentina.

The hosts are in 14th in Serie A and they come into the game without a win in four. Since back to back victories over Verona and Udinese, they have been beaten by Inter and Roma, and held by Bologna and Sampdoria.

The Roma fixture aside, Cagliari scored in all three of those games that they didn't win and, on this ground, this selection would have landed in all of their last five Serie A matches.

The visitors are in ninth, which isn't quite where they would have expected to be this term. They are actually unbeaten in five, but four of those were draws, with the two latest being 0-0 scorelines.

Nevertheless, there have been at least three goals in three of their last six on the road, and they will certainly fancy their chances of getting a goal or two this evening.

Bet 2: Back BTTS in Norwich v Brentford @ 8/15 - KO 19:45 GMT

Norwich were one of my likely promotion contenders this season but after 22 games of the campaign, they are down in 16th place. That being said, there are only 10 points between them and Sheffield United in sixth, so a Play-off place isn't totally out of the question.

As far as the goals go, their matches are averaging 2.23 goals each time, and while only eight of their 22 have gone over 2.5, this selection of both teams to score has landed in five of their last six at Carrow Road.

Brentford are 13th and although they have won just one of their last six, they have only lost one of their last five. There have been goals at both ends in four of their last five and the same can be said for four of their last six on their travels.

Bet 3: Back Liverpool @ 15/8 - KO 19:45 GMT

The undoubted highlight of the night is the fixture at The Emirates between Arsenal and Liverpool, and I have to think that Jurgen Klopp's side are a bit of value at the 15/8 mark.

Just a single point separates these two clubs and it would appear that they, along with Spurs, will be in a three-way battle for fourth place. That makes this game even more important - especially as it kicks off a busy schedule of fixtures.

The Reds have already won five times away from Anfield this year and it should have been more. They haven't lost a game of any description since their 4-1 loss at Spurs at the end of October, and they have won their last four Premier League games on the road - scoring 16 goals in the process.

Arsenal have looked good at times this year but they have often failed to perform on the big stage. They were beaten 3-1 here by Manchester United three weeks ago and they have since gone on to draw with Southampton and West Ham, before scraping a narrow 1-0 victory over the struggling Newcastle last weekend.
