Paul Robinson landed his second Daily Acca of the week as yesterday's 7/1 winner added to Monday's 31/1 success and he's aiming to round off the week with a 5/1 shot. Here are his selections:

- Back Man United @ 4/5
- Back BTTS in Watford v Tottenham @ 4/5
- Back BTTS in Sampdoria v Napoli @ 4/5

The Acca pays approximately 5/1

United to get back to winning ways

Bet 1: Back Man United @ 4/5 - KO 16:00 BST

This probably won't be a popular pick, but I quite fancy Manchester United to win at Turf Moor this afternoon.

Jose Mourinho is a man under intense pressure, but his team played better than the 0-3 scoreline suggested against Spurs on Monday, and if they can just take their chances, they should be able to turn over Burnley.

The Clarets exited the Europa League on Thursday night, despite a spirited display against Olympiakos. It might not feel like it now, but the fact they didn't progress to the group stage could prove a blessing in disguise given the lack of depth in their squad.

Sean Dyche's men have made a poor start to their domestic campaign as they have picked up just one point from matches against Southampton, Watford and Fulham. They have conceded seven goals and it appears that their once solid defence isn't quite as solid anymore.

Bet 2: Back BTTS in Watford v Tottenham @ 4/5 - KO 16:00 BST

The Hornets have made a fantastic start to their season as it's three wins from three, with seven goals scored in three games. They also won in the EFL Cup at Reading on Wednesday, to keep the momentum going.

Spurs have also won three from three, and they have had a much harder fixture list than Watford. They have also scored a goal more, but like their opponents, they have both only kept the one clean sheet.

Harry Kane has broken his August scoring duck with two of his team's eight goals, but it's Lucas Moura who leads the way with three and he is proving a revelation this year.

The hosts won't sit back and defend here as that's not Javi Gracia's way, and I think that goals at both ends is a near certainty.

Italian duo to produce goals

Bet 3: Back BTTS in Sampdoria v Napoli @ 4/5 - KO 19:30 BST

Napoli may be at the beginning of a new era following Maurizio Sarri's departure to Chelsea, but the evidence so far suggests that his replacement, Carlo Ancelotti, is going to continue in the same vein.

Gli Azzurri have played two and won two, but neither were routine victories. They first came back from 1-0 down at Lazio, to win 2-1, before coming back from 2-0 down at home against AC Milan, to eventually win 3-2.

Half a dozen points from those two fixtures is a tremendous achievement, but there must be some concerns over the defence.

Sampdoria have only played once in Serie A this term, and that was a 1-0 defeat at Udinese last weekend. Marco Giampaolo's men were dominant at home last year, winning 12 of their 19 games and losing just four. They averaged nearly two goals per match, but they still conceded 20 in total.
