THE Premier League fixtures continue to come thick and fast as we approach the business end of the campaign.

It’s been another terrific week of action in the top-flight, with another hectic week of fixtures kicking-off with Monday Night Football at Old Trafford.

Man Utd vs Southampton (Monday, 8pm)

The Man Utd juggernaut continues to roll on.

It was yet another 3-0 victory for the Red Devils as they swatted Aston Villa aside with relative ease, in the process perhaps condemning Dean Smith’s side to an instant return to the Championship.

We landed all four of our selections for the match  – and as for the 12/1 on them winning next year’s title, that’s already been cut to 8/1. Hope you all got on.

A Champions League place now looks a formality, with Leicester sweating on the dual Manchester pincer of United’s surge and City’s upcoming court case.

In their way on Monday Night Football is a Southampton side who on paper have nothing to play for, but have been absolutely superb since football resumed just under a month ago.

The Saints are unbeaten in three after a credible 1-1 draw at Everton and boast in their ranks one of the Premier League’s hottest marksman.

Danny Ings seems to have been around forever, but is still only 27 and enjoying the best season of his career.

His strike against the Toffees keeps him in the race for the Golden Boot, while the Saints as a whole seemed buoyed by a herculean effort to beat Man City in their last home game.

No way do they pitch up at Old Trafford and simply lay down.

With the way this United team is ticking though, that might not matter too much.

Southampton can try all they want, but if Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba start pulling the strings in the middle, they’re in trouble.

Pogba is no longer the star at Old Trafford – but SunSport’s main man Neil Custis reckons that’s exactly how he likes it.

As you’d expect, United on the win market is a measly price – 2/7 gets you £2.85 profit on a tenner.

Ole’s men have scored 15 in their last four matches, conceding just twice after a couple of defensive howlers against Bournemouth.

Southampton have been excellent on the road this term and that Cherries game did prove United have weakness which can be probed.

The Saints have scored in all but TWO of their away games this season – Burnley and Liverpool – while they’ve netted at Man City, Tottenham, Chelsea, Wolves and Arsenal.

We really like the look of the 2/1 on United to win this one but with the Saints scoring.

While both teams to net on it’s own is a very tempting 19/20.

Southampton don’t have a great record in terms of results here, but Old Trafford holds no fear as they’ve netted on six of their last eight visits.

They’re in great form and we reckon those are brilliant prices despite Man Utd’s recent dominance.

While for the more adventurous amongst you, backing the home side to win BOTH halves is 15/8.

Hardly something to turn your nose up at, as that’s happened in United’s last four games straight.

 Fernandes has been superb since arriving in January

When looking at a goalscorer bet, sometimes it makes sense to play the hot hand.

Fernandes is the player you want to trust your cash with, although you’d be hard-pressed to find fault with the 7/5 on Mason Greenwood continuing his own streak.

The Portuguese magician is a bigger price to net anytime than both Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, despite four in his last three.

3/2 for him to score at anytime is the best bet of the week, while 4/1 on the designated penalty taker and set piece specialist bagging the first goal should also be backed.

Anthony Joshua takes on UFC star Israel Adesanya in hilarious hot sauce challenge

anthony joshua takes on ufc star israel adesanya in hilarious hot sauce challenge

Anthony Joshua may well be one of the most fearsome heavyweights on the planet but even he didn’t fancy his chances up against some of the spiciest sauces on the shelves.

The unified world champion went head to head with UFC star Israel Adesanya in a crazy hot sauce challenge on First We Feast YouTube’s channel.

In the hilarious video, AJ and Adesanya had to answer some fairly hard-hitting questions truthfully or face taking a bite out of a chicken wing dabbed in one of three hot sauces varying in intensity.

The Brit escaped the first round unscathed after giving his opinion on YouTubers becoming professional boxers for one fight and getting multi-million pound paydays. 

‘The thing that annoys me the most is there is so much talent from the grassroots level who are trying to get their name recognised by the bigger audience and they’re struggling so it’s kind of a world of who is popular and who can just do it versus who is talented and who is trying to get their name recognised but isn’t get a look in,’ he said.

‘But the big benefit of it for the sport is it that it attracts a whole new audience.’ After the first couple of rounds the questions began to get tougher. UFC’s middleweight world champion Adesanya was the first to take the plunge after failing to reveal what media reporters he feels cover him unfairly.

‘I’d love to answer that one but I blocked them in real life,’ Adesanya said. ‘You know that episode in Black Mirror where you block them and they become a blur, I’ve done that to a couple of reporters and I can’t remember their names but I know their faces and if I did remember it, I’d say it.’

But AJ wasn’t convinced by his answer and shouted: ‘I think that’s a dab!’ Adesanya had no major problems dealing with the first sauce, though he did describe it as ‘tantalising’.

Joshua’s turn was next after he refused to answer what the last film that reduced him to tears. After some hesitation and pretending to dip his chicken wing in the sauce , Joshua finally took a bite and appeared unfazed.

The 30-year-old got through the rest of his questions by admitting that his first-round knockout victory over Emanuele Leo on his debut was the easiest win of his career and naming Don King as a promoter who has been suspected of fixing fights. King has always denied any accusations of fight-fixing.

Adesanya said Dana White’s most annoying quality is that he is very emotional but insisted that was also his strength and has contributed to helping the UFC become the global enterprise it is today. 

But the UFC champion would end up trying the second hottest sauce after volunteering himself to do it.  

After being asked who is the dirtiest fight, he said: ‘There’s a few,’ before even naming one fighter who he thought might have ‘some extra supplements south of the border that he takes.’

‘I don’t understand the stress it takes to cheat but I feel like trying this one anyway so I might try some of this on one of these chicken wings. We can’t just go through this trying only one sauce, you got to break at least two.’

After trying just a tiny bit on his finger, Adesanya said: ‘Wow it jumps up levels, if that (picked up the first bottle of sauce) was level three, this is level six. 

‘That is a big jump. If you hate someone you can put this in their food but I’ll try a little bit because I’m no b****.’ 

After the round of questions were over, Joshua and Adesanya braved it by going in to try more of the sauces. 

Both men are currently preparing to defend their titles with Adesanya taking on Paulo Costa next Sunday and Joshua expected to face Kubrat Pulev at the backend of this year.

wolves set to sign liverpool defender ki jana hoever in 10m deal

Wolves are set to sign Liverpool defender Ki-Jana Hoever for a fee of around £10million, Sportsmail understands.

The 18-year-old Dutch youth international has appeared four times for Jurgen Klopp’s senior side in the cups.

He became Liverpool’s youngest-ever player in the FA Cup when making his debut at 16 against Wolves last year.

Hoever – who joined the Reds from Ajax in 2018 – signed a new long-term contract last summer and it was thought he could head out on loan this season.

However, he is now set to join Wolves on a permanent deal after terms were agreed between the clubs.

Wolves sold right wing-back Matt Doherty to Spurs this summer and Hoever is seen as an option on the right and in the centre of the defence.

Man City without Sergio Aguero and Aymeric Laporte for Premier League opener at Wolves

man city without sergio aguero and aymeric laporte for premier league opener at wolves

Pep Guardiola revealed that Manchester City will be without both Sergio Aguero and Aymeric Laporte for their season curtain-raiser at Wolves.

Laporte only returned to training on Friday following self-isolation on the back of a positive coronavirus test.

Aguero’s knee injury means he is undergoing sessions alone and yet to link up with the rest of Guardiola’s squad.

It leaves City without two of their best players for a trip to Molineux against a Wolves team that did the double over them last term.

‘Riyad (Mahrez) came back (from self-isolation) four days ago and today was the first day Aymeric is coming back,’ Guardiola said.

‘Riyad will be available, Laporte not yet. Aguero has not made one training session with us.’

Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling are Guardiola’s options through the middle and Laporte’s absence at the back could mean a debut for the £40million summer signing.

Ake might have been joined by Lionel Messi as the Argentine attempted to engineer a way out of Barcelona. City had been cautiously optimistic of landing Messi before his exit was blocked.

Guardiola added: ‘I don’t have to explain anything. Leo explained it quite well, his feelings. I don’t have anything to add. He is at Barcelona, a club I love.’

City could yet be busy in the transfer window before it shuts on October 5 as they hunt for a centre half, with the futures of a number of existing players up in the air.

Guardiola suggested the next fortnight could be busy at the Etihad Stadium. ‘Since day one, when I arrived here, I am more than satisfied on what I had. I know the club do absolutely everything to do their best for all of us,’ he said.

‘If it happens then it’ll happen, we could move someone – because sometimes the player decide to leave. I’ll never complain about this (transfers). I’m a lucky person to have these players.’
