Everton sit third in the Premier League table, with three wins and a draw under the stewardship of new manager Ronald Koeman.

And the Toffees are 7/10 favourites with William Hill to win a fourth league game in a row, while Boro are available at 5/1 and the draw at 3/1 – both with Betfred.

Everton have only conceded twice in those four games thus far, while Boro have leaked just four goals in four games, so this looks set to be a low scoring encounter.

We can see the home team winning 1-0 or 2-0 and suggest backing both scorelines with Bet365, who refund losing Correct Score bets on all games that finish 0-0.

Our main bet though must be on Under 2.5 Goals at 4/5, with Bet365 or Coral.

Finally, Romelu Lukaku scored a second half hat-trick against Sunderland on Monday night and Coral are offering stand-out odds of 4/1 on him to score first.

Watford v Manchester United

In spite of two defeats in five days for United, the bookmakers anticipate that they will get back on track at Vicarage Road on Sunday lunchtime.

Jose Mourinho’s side are no bigger than 7/10 with Coral, with the hosts available at 5/1 with Ladbrokes and the draw at 31/10 with Bet365.

The United manager made eight changes to the side that suffered a 1-0 Europa League defeat at Feyenoord on Thursday, but will revert to “a normal team” here.

The Hornets have lost both home games this season (1-2 to Chelsea and then 1-3 to Arsenal), and have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last six league games here.

In fact, they have kept just one clean sheet, home or away, in their last 15 league games – conceding 30 goals in that period (exactly two goals a game on average).

We can see United winning this by two clear goals and will go for 2-0 and 3-1 away wins at 15/2 and 14/1 respectively with Bet365, plus that 0-0 money-back guarantee.

We also want to back Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the 7/2 with Paddy Power to score first.

Crystal Palace v Stoke

Stoke find themselves rooted to the bottom of the table with just one point to show for their four games and they are 16/5 with Betfred to win at Selhurst Park, with the Eagles available at best price 11/10 with BetVictor and the draw at 5/2 with Bet365.

The best bet looks to be on Under 2.5 Goal’s at 3/4 with BetVictor, with Stoke having scored just twice in those four games, and Palace just three in four themselves.

We also recommend backing 0-0 at half time at 13/8, the 1-0 Palace win at 6/1, plus Christian Benteke to score first at a huge 7/1 with BetVictor (just 4/1 elsewhere).

Tottenham may have crashed to a home defeat at Wembley in the Champions League on Wednesday, but they are fully expected to return to winning ways here.

They are 1/3 (generally) to win in the more familiar surroundings of White Hart Lane, with Sunderland as big as 11/1 with William Hill and the draw at 9/2 with Bet365.

Spurs have scored at least once in all games this season and Sunderland have only failed to score once themselves, so we feel a bet on Both Teams To Score is the best option at the best odds of 21/20 with Bet365.

On the same basis, we want to be on 2-1 and 3-1 home wins at the best odds of 17/2 and 11/1 respectively with Bet365 (again, money-back if the game ends 0-0).

Finally, Paddy Power offer stand-out odds of 13/2 on Dele Alli and 11/1 on former White Hart Lane hero Jermain Defoe to score first – back both players each-way.
