Southampton v Manchester United
What to make of Southampton? They gave the champions an almighty fright in their own backyard on the opening day and then went down with a whimper when Wigan came to town. Well, we're about to find out on Sunday when Manchester United pay a visit to St Mary's.
I have to say I'm a little concerned about the home side after that defeat to Wigan. The worry for me is how fearful they looked last time out, and that is something the manager cannot allow to happen. When players get fearful the normal things they do - both as a team and an individual - go out the window and so does the gameplan. It's a toxic brew for any team and Nigel Adkins mustn't let it take hold.
People would be surprised to learn how much of the game is played between the ears. Saints must adapt to Premier League life quickly or this will turn out to be a very tough season.
And Adkins won't have to look far to see how it's done. All 11 Manchester United players will be as positive as it gets for this 4pm test in front of the Sky cameras.
United, of course, have not enjoyed their finest start to a Premier League season after losing to Everton and then conceding twice when Fulham came to Old Trafford last weekend.
That failure to shut out the opposition in both league fixtures has pushed the clean sheet price out to what looks a nice price to me - 2.6813/8 - and I'll be backing United to do just that as well as taking all three points.
People point to Michael Carrick and suggest he is the weak link, but having Nemanja Vidic alongside certainly helps, and players learn quickly especially when Sir Alex Ferguson is doing the teaching. As I say, I expect them to win this game to nil.
Everyone at Old Trafford will have been given a boost when Robin van Persie scored a typical RvP goal last weekend, twisting his body shape to beat Mark Schwarzer, and he can get on the scoresheet again here. He won't be much of a price, but he's in his prime and I can't resist backing him against a defence that's conceded five times in two matches.
It's a tough transition coming up from the Championship. This game will tell us much about Southampton's ability to survive. They don't have to win, but they must show us far more than we saw against Wigan.
Back Man Utd to win to nil @ 4.1
Back van Persie to score @ 2.111/10
