Boxing Day Preview

On Boxing day football, I like Man Utd's chances at home to Sunderland. Obviously the Red Devils are in good form, and as long as they are focused and not too distracted by festivities, they should be winning this game. Last year, Sunderland gave them a major scare by almost winning this game at Old Trafford, but I don't think that this time the Black Cats are equipped to do so. They will missing some first-team players like Mensah, Cattermole and Wellbeck. This might game that Rooney starts rolling, and all the ingredients seem to be there for him to regain form. A Man Utd draw-no-bet seems a safe bet.

In Scotland, I can't see Celtic losing at home to St Johnstone. Obviously, there are no guarantees of wins with the current Celtic team, but St Johnstone are simply not good enough to cause them trouble at Parkhead. Again, a draw-no-bet on Lennon's men should be safe.

Draw-no-bet: Man Utd, Celtic
