Premier League - Tactical Preview

Alex Keble picks out four key tactical battles from the fourth weekend of the 2020/21 Premier League season, including why Spurs could take all three points at Man Utd.

He says: "Solskjaer's inability to coach attacking patterns leaves his team looking lethargic and creatively inept whenever they face a deep-lying opponent. Without set moves stored in muscle memory, their free improvisations are sluggish against a rigid defensive blockade."

Back Spurs to beat Man Utd at 29/10

Ligue 1 - James Eastham's preview

French football expert James Eastham picks bets for two standout games this weekend and makes the case for St Etienne.
