GET READY FOR FIREWORKS; Premier League's big five set for a sparkling Saturday Saturday City 10-3 to win all of their next three.

BONFIRE night displays don't come any better than this and most punters will be hoping the Premier League's famous five can produce fireworks for a sparkling Saturday of top-flight football, writes Mark Langdon.

Rarely do the top teams all play on the same day, but that is the case today with Man City (at QPR), Man United (home to Sunderland), Chelsea (at Blackburn), Liverpool (home to Swansea) and Arsenal (home to West Brom) set to form the backbone of multiple bets.

The quintet are all long oddson, ranging from a best-priced 8-15 about Chelsea to a low of United at 2-7 with Paddy Power the firm to head to if you fancy the accumulator which returns pounds 52.95 for a pounds 10 stake.

"We always feel at least one of them will get turned over on a weekend," said Power spokesman Darren Haines. "TheContinues figures will look shocking if all five oblige because we expect turnover to be higher than normal with them playing on a Saturday. "However, Liverpool have already dropped home points and are worth laying, while Arsenal remain defensively fallible and Chelsea are winless in four." Hills also expect to be bowled over and Joe Crilly said: "It will be quite devastating if all of them win with the two London teams our best chance of cleaning up on the multiple bets."

On such a stellar Saturday Boylesports are odds-on that Aston Villa versus Norwich is shown last on Match of the Day, although Everton's trip to Newcastle is worth a second glance at 14-1. It's a live Sky game and has the potential to be low-scoring. QPR v Man City is favourite to be scheduled for top billing on the Beeb and Roberto Mancini's men are 12-1 with Bet365 to remain unbeaten in the Premier League this campaign.

Victor Chandler rate City 10-3 to grab maximum points from their next three league games - they also host Newcastle and travel to Liverpool - while Power have David Silva at 13-8 in the PFA Player of the Year betting. Also expect plenty of Match of the Day coverage to United with City 10-3 to win all of their next three Sir Alex Ferguson this week celebrating 25 years at the helm. Fergie is 7-4 with Hills to still be United manager in 2014 and Jose Mourinho is 5-2 favourite to replace the Scot at Old Trafford. The FA confirmed last night they would appeal United hitman Wayne Rooney's three-match ban at Euro 2012 for the red card he picked up for England in Montenegro. Meanwhile, Bet365 go 8-1 that Huddersfield break Arsenal's 49- match unbeaten league record.

They are currently on 41 games without defeat in League One.
