Newcastle’s two Senegalese strikers could be back from International duty to play against Blackburn and William Hill go 11/4 that Demba Ba scores more than new boy, Papiss Cisse in the match (10/3 vice versa and 4/7 for the tie).

“The Africa Cup of Nations is always an exciting affair and with so many English based players involved is always a huge draw for fans of the British game,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “With the lack of some of the traditional big hitters of African football such as Egypt, Nigeria and Cameroon, the competition could be the most open for some time.”

Beckham’s U-turn And Carroll Back To Geordie Shores?

Following the news that both David Beckham and PSG have pulled the plug on his supposed move to Paris, William Hill are now offering 4/11 that his next competitive game is for the LA Galaxy and 4/1 that he signs for any other MLS side. Should he move to England, QPR are the favourites to sign him at 12/1 with Arsenal 16/1. A return to Spain looks the most unlikely outcome with Malaga the favourites of the Spanish sides to sign him up at 25/1.

Hills offer 1/3 that David Beckham starts the first match for Team GB at the Olympics.

“In a full U turn, it looks like Becks will now be staying in America and more than likely, turning out for the Galaxy once again,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Andy Carroll has hardly set the world alight since his arrival at Liverpool from Newcastle and rumours are suggesting that he could well be returning to the North East. Hills make him 10/3 to return to Newcastle, whether permanently or on loan and Hills think that Darren Bent could well be on his way to Anfield, offering 9/2 that he signs for Liverpool in January.

David Beckham’s Next Competitive Game: 4/11 LA Galaxy; 4/1 Any other MLS team; 12/1 QPR; 16/1 Arsenal; 20/1 Fulham; 25/1 Anzhi; 25/1 Chelsea; 25/1 Malaga; 25/1 Man Utd…others on request

10/3 Andy Carroll to return to Newcastle in January 2012 (1/5 not to)

9/2 Darren Bent to sign for Liverpool in January 2012 (1/8 not to)

Wednesday’s Football

Manchester United are firm favourites to defeat Newcastle, despite losing to Blackburn and William Hill make them 8/11 to win in the North East. Newcastle are 4/1 and the game should signal the return of Wayne Rooney to the starting line up. William Hill offer 6/4 that his first action during the game is to score a goal while he is 4/1 to be booked and 40/1 to see a straight red first. Rooney is 15/8 to outscore Demba Ba during the game and 5/2 to outscore Javier Hernandez. The last time these two sides played, Manchester United conceded a highly controversial penalty and they are 11/2 to concede another.

“All eyes will be on Rooney as he returns to the pitch following his suspension and we think he could well find the back of the net,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

Landon Donovan could return for Everton against Bolton and Hills make him 9/2 to open the scoring and 6/5 to score anytime. It is Even money for him to be subbed before doing anything else in the match, although he is 2/1 to score a goal before that.

What will Rooney do first vs Newcastle: 6/4 Score; 2/1 finish match; 11/4 subbed; 4/1 yellow card; 40/1 red card; 66/1 own goal

Rooney vs Ba (most goals): 15/8 Rooney; 10/3 Ba; 5/6 Tie

Rooney vs Hernandez (most goals): 5/2 Rooney; 11/4 Hernandez; 8/11 Tie

Manchester United to concede a penalty: 11/2

What will Landon Donovan do first vs Bolton: 1/1 Subbed; 2/1 Goal; 10/3 Finish match; 4/1 Yellow Card; 40/1 Red Card; 50/1 Own Goal

When Will City Lose At Home?

TOTTENHAM HAVE THE SPURS TO PUSH MANCHESTER ALL THE WAY

Spurs sneaked a victory at home to West Brom and they are 10/1 third favourites to win the League. Sunderland continued their fine form under Martin O’Neill and Hills make them 6/4 to finish higher than Newcastle in the league.

Taking both Manchester sides out of the equation, Spurs are odds-on at 8/11 to win the league.

“Spurs played well against West Brom, but struggled to find the breakthrough,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly. “They are grinding out results like this though and they are showing that they have the resilience to push the Manchester sides all the way.”

Sergio Aguero Bagged himself a goal and edged closer to Robin van Persie in the race to win the golden boot. He is the 5/2 second favourite behind the Dutchman who is miles ahead at 5/4.

Wigan were thumped at home by Sunderland and they are 2/1 favourites to finish bottom of the Premier League and 4/9 favourites to get relegated at the end of the season.
