£25 QUALIFICATION BET (TO PLACE BEFORE 23:59 BST ON FRIDAY)

Arsenal have won just one from four in the Premier League since appointing Mikel Arteta, so I’m backing Sheffield United to get a result at the Emirates on Saturday.

The Blades have lost their last two matches on the road, but those losses came against Liverpool and Manchester City, so you can’t read too much into that.

Chris Wilder’s side have secured points at Chelsea, Spurs, Everton and Wolves this season, and they beat the Gunners 1-0 in the reverse fixture.

City should beat Crystal Palace at home after thrashing Aston Villa 6-1 last time out, but BTTS looks a good add-on here.

There have been goals at both ends in eight of the last 10 matches at the Etihad, with teams such as Port Vale and Southampton breaching the champions’ defence.

I’m rounding off my qualifying treble by backing BTTS in Norwich v Bournemouth.

This bet has landed in all but one of the 11 matches at Carrow Road this season and Norwich have not kept a clean sheet since November.

I’m heading down to the Championship with my first free bet, starting with a potential upset when second-placed Leeds travel to QPR.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side have won just one of their last seven matches in all competitions – a 5-4 win at Birmingham on 29 December.

QPR have won their last two matches at Loftus Road by an aggregate score of 11-2, so could cause a shock.

I’m backing another underdog with the second leg of this double as a resurgent Barnsley travel to Bristol City, who lost 1-0 to Shrewsbury in an FA Cup replay on Tuesday.

Barnsley have lost just one of their last eight in all competitions, are coming off back-to-back wins, and have had three more days of rest than their opponents.

Bristol City have lost six of their last 10 in all competitions, including three of their last five at Ashton Gate.
