No sooner has the weekend gone and Premier League football returns this evening with a bang and a full fixture schedule over the next two days. Tonight sees four games in the Premier League and a further 3 games in Ligue 1 making it a double match day dividends day! So who should Indexers be looking out for?
Well where better to start than Manchester United‘s trip to high flying Watford. The weekend saw Jose Mourinho’s men scrape a win over Brighton and United travel to Vicarage Road tonight to face Marco Silva’s in form team, in what will be a tough test for the Red Devil’s. Yesterday’s media dividends winner, Romelu Lukaku (£4.53), will be in attendance as there will be no punishment for his petulant kick on Saturday, but will Mourinho turn to Index legend Zlatan Ibrahimovic (£3.70), with the games coming thick and fast? One thing for sure is United will want the three points to close the gap on Pep Guardiola’s men to 5 points. But Watford are flying at the moment and find themselves in 8th place just 4 points off the Champions League spot, with the attacking Richarlison (£2.04) attracting all kinds of admirers, having hit the ground running in the Premier League this season!
The other headline game in the Premier League sees Spurs travel to the King Power Stadium to take on Claude Puel’s Leicester City. City will be hoping the game doesn’t go the same way as the fixture at the end of last season where Harry Kane (£7.29) struck four in a 6-1 win! Future holders of Kane will be hoping for a repeat with match day dividends though! Spurs have stuttered at Wembley this season but fared much better away from home and Leicester have steadied the ship somewhat since the appointment of Claude Puel and with his wife busy in some jungle in Australia, will Jamie Vardy (£0.72) steal some headlines?
Over in Ligue 1, Bordeaux are in action at home to St Etienne, giving Indexers an opportunity to have a close look at one of the most exciting youngsters in Europe, Malcom (£2.33). His fine start to the season with five goals and four assists, peaked the interest of traders when he joined the Index earlier this month, flying above £2 and tonight is a great opportunity to bring home some match day dividends!
Great to have some football this midweek, who do people think will win the match day dividends?
