Andy Maynard of posted a follow-up entry to his blog from last week with his tips for this weekend’s £10,000,000 Colossus Pool!

Followers of my blog last week would have had a decent Cash-In offer after the first two matches and at half-time during the Burton v Portsmouth match. Hopefully we can get something similar this weekend with the return of the Premier League, Championship and a big derby in La Liga…

Chelsea v Swansea (Saturday, 3pm)
The only two sides remaining in the Premier League with 100 per cent winning records meet at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
Chelsea have been lethal in attack and are the division’s highest scorers with 11 goals netted in just three matches.
Summer acquisition Diego Costa has accounted for four of those and is the early leader in the top flight scoring charts.
Despite having the meanest defence last term, Jose Mourinho’s men have looked uncharacteristically weak at the back especially during the 6-3 victory at Everton, while Leicester were unlucky not to score at least one on their visit to the Bridge.
They could be exposed again this weekend against a Swansea side who join the Blues at the top.

Garry Monk has guided the Swans to victory in all four of their matches in league and cup so far, conceding just once in the process.

That came on the opening day at Old Trafford where they gained a 2-1 victory – since then they’ve managed to keep out Burnley, Rotherham and West Brom in their last three.

This will be a much tougher test and the Welsh side will need to improve on recent results against Chelsea as they’ve lost without scoring in the previous three head-to-heads, and have not picked up maximum points in any of the six Premier League meetings between the pair.

Although I think it will be Swansea who’s winning run will come to an end here, it should be a close match so I’m backing 2-1, 2-0 and 1-0 victories for the home side.

2-1, 2-0, 1-0

Sunderland v Tottenham (Saturday, 3pm)
Sunderland will be looking for their first win of the season when they host Tottenham this weekend.

After drawing their opening two games against West Brom and Man Utd respectively, the Black Cats suffered their first loss at QPR last time out with a 1-0 defeat.

The Stadium of Light outfit have a poor recent record against Spurs having not won in the previous eight encounters and have lost three of the last four at home by a 2-1 scoreline.

The visitors’ four-game winning run in all competitions came to an abrupt end in their latest league encounter after losing 3-0 at home to Liverpool.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men should have enough to gain at least a point here but I think they could snatch a narrow victory so I’m covering a 1-1 draw as well as 0-1 and 1-2 away wins.

1-1, 0-1, 1-2
