250/1 For United To Change Their Kit...History To Repeat Itself ?
Back in 1996, Southampton hammered Manchester United at the Dell, but William Hill are not predicting such a rout to take place this season. Southampton are 5/1 (United are odds on at 6/10 to win) to get the win at St Mary's and a massive 500/1 to win the game by the same 6-3 scoreline.
During Southampton's win in the previous season, Manchester United changed their kit at half time and Hills are offering 250/1 that they do so again on Sunday.
Robin van Persie opened his United account last week and he is 11/4 to open the scoring against Southampton and 12/1 to score a hat-trick.
"Before they were relegated, Southampton was not the happiest of stomping grounds for United although the odds suggest that they will cruise to victory this weekend," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly. "We will be expecting a few quid on the 6-3 scoreline I'm sure though."
Arsenal are struggling to find the back of the net and William Hill are offering 7/5 that the Gunners once again fail to score in their match against Liverpool for which the hosts are 23/20 favourites and the subject of nearly 75% of all bets on the outcome of the match.
Newcastle and Aston Villa fight it out in the other match of the day and the hosts are 4/6 to win the match. This season, William Hill are also putting out enhanced wincasts for every single team and one of the standout offers of the weekend is the 7/4 for Papiss Cisse to score anytime with Newcastle winning the match.

23/20 Liverpool; 12/5 Arsenal; 23/10 Arsenal
