The Daily Acca: Salah to strike at the Bridge

Liverpool forward - Mohamed Salah
Mohamed Salah was the stand-out player against Leeds

There is plenty of top class football on offer across Europe today and Paul Robinson has put together an 8/1 Daily Acca that starts at Stamford Bridge. Here are his selections:

- Back Mohamed Salah to Score @ 6/5
- Back Leicester @ 8/13
- Back Marseille @ 6/4

The Acca pays approximately 8/1

Salah to continue his flying start

Bet 1: Back Mohamed Salah to Score @ 6/5 - KO 16:30 BST

Liverpool travel to Stamford Bridge this afternoon with some questions to answer following their eventful 4-3 win over Leeds on the opening day.

One of those questions isn't about the form of Mo Salah though. The Egyptian looked electric at Anfield last weekend, as he scored a hat-trick - two well taken penalties and a blistering strike.

He will fancy his chances against a Chelsea defence that still look dodgy, and a goalkeeper who had the worst save percentage in Premier League history last season. You could also argue that Kepa should have saved Leandro Trossard's shot on Monday.

A dose of reality for Burnley

Bet 2: Back Leicester @ 8/13 - KO 19:00 BST

The Foxes were pretty dire in the first half at the Hawthorns last weekend, but they produced a much better second half display to win 3-0, and that should hopefully kick them into gear.

Brendan Rodgers' side hasn't added too many players to his squad over the summer, but he did manage to sign full-back, Timothy Castagne - and the right back even scored on his debut.

Burnley didn't play last week so this is our first chance to see them - although they were involved in Cup action on Thursday (beating Sheffield United on penalties).

Sean Dyche has been vocal about his frustrations in the transfer market, and I have the Clarets down as potential strugglers this year.

Points to stay at the Stade Vélodrome

Bet 3: Back Marseille @ 6/4 - KO 20:00 BST

Marseille couldn't back up their epic 0-1 win at PSG against St-Etienne during the week, as they ended up being beaten 0-2 at home.

André Villas-Boas will be hoping for a much better performance from last year's runners-up today, and they will need one if they want to win, as Lille are in town.

The visitors finished in fourth place last term, and they have started this season like they finished the last. A draw with Rennes was followed by victories over Reims and Metz, but this is a definite step-up in class this evening.

On balance I believe that the hosts are a big enough price to back at 6/4, and they did do the double over Lille last season.
