Man City to sink Everton? Barcelona to beat Real in Copa del Rey clash?
Tottenham's late winner against Newcastle denied us a near 14/1 treble success at the weekend but there's plenty of opportunity to get back on track this week with some big games in the Premier League, FA Cup and Spain's Copa del Rey.

Pressure is an odd beast, and after four less than convincing performances it's a beast now resting impatiently at the gates of Anfield. Liverpool have conceded in five of their last six games and with this in mind look pretty short at 2/5 to beat West Ham on Monday evening. Manuel Pellegrini will be looking for a reaction after consecutive defeats for his team but the Hammers are a much better side at home and if Marko Arnautovic starts they could claim a share of the spoils to blow the title race wide open again. The Reds will take heart from the fact they've won their last four matches against the Hammers, and they've scored nine goals during their last two visits to the London Stadium. However with the pressure now firmly on Jurgen Klopp and his side they are far from bankers to claim a crucial three points.
The Tasty Treble
Marco Silva is under massive pressure at Goodison after Everton's recent slump and he must be dreading the visit of free-scoring Manchester City on Wednesday. The Citizens got their title bid right back on track by beating Arsenal 3-1 on Sunday and look a punt here at 10/11 to beat the Toffees by more than a goal. In the FA Cup, Middlesbrough should have too much for plucky Newport County second time around and the Championship side are a tempting 19/20 for the win at Rodney Parade. Add in Barcelona (7/10) to do the business against Real Madrid for a treble with bet365 paying over 5/1.
Selection: £3 on the treble at 5.32/1 with bet365.
The Euro Wager
Barcelona face Real Madrid in a blockbuster Copa del Rey clash at Camp Nou on Wednesday. The Catalan giants are sitting pretty at the top of La Liga and will be confident of victory in this semifinal clash after their astonishing 6-1 victory over Sevilla last week booked their place in the last four. The last time Real Madrid faced their bitter rivals, Barca ran out 5-1 winners, with Luis Suarez bagging a hat trick. The hosts are 8/5 to be winning at half-time and full-time and that's a bet we like given their options in attack.
The Wildcard Tip
Portsmouth have been having a tough time of it in 2019 so far but we are not sure they should be such big outsiders for their FA Cup fourth round replay against QPR. The teams looked well matched at Fratton Park and while Pompey have struggled to keep clean sheets recently they have enough up top to get past the Londoners here.
The First Goal Flutter
Felipe Anderson has scored nine times in just 24 appearances for West Ham so far this season so looks a big price at 14/1 to find the net first against Liverpool. The Brazilian attacking midfielder will be bang up for this and can take full advantage of a Reds defence that has been leaking goals of late.
