The football league kicks off with a full coupon, plus we have Premiership champions Manchester City taking on the FA Cup winners Arsenal in the Community Shield on Sunday.

It should certainly be an interesting matchup as the Gunners in particular parade a variety of big name signings. Alexis Sanchez arrived from Barcelona in the summer for an undisclosed fee, and much is expected of the 25yr old Chile international as Arsene Wenger’s side looks packed full of quality going forward.

Sanchez should team up with Aaron Ramsey, Mesut Ozil, Jack Wilshire and Santi Cazorla in midfield, in what looks like a potential Championship winning lin up.

Alexis Sanchez ArsenalMan City themselves have spent a summer of consolidation, with only Bacary Sagna making the move from the Emirates to the Etihad plus midfielder Fernando who arrived for £12m from Porto. Of course, Frank Lampard has also arrived as part of his deal before joining New York City in January.

It certainly should be an interesting match up but Arsenal are simply way too much value to ignore at our offer of 7/1 (more details above).

Those fans of the lower leagues will also be frothing at the mouth as they look at the promised land of the Premiership. Derby Cardiff and Wigan currently head the outright betting markets and it will be interesting to see if the relegated clubs can mount a serious challenge.

Stuart Pearce has plenty of pedigree this season and he will be hoping to get his Nottingham Forest side off to a good start as they face Blackpool at the City Ground. The Tangerines have been left in tatters following a mass exodus of players and Jose Riga faces a huge challenge ahead of him, while Pearce has recruited wisely, bringing in Matty Fryatt and Mikele Leigertwood.

The evens available on the Forest home win with a -1 handicap looks too big to miss.

Fulham will be looking to get back to the Premiership in their first season and boss Felix Magath has looked to revitalise his squad. The arrival of the consistant Ross McCormack from Leeds up front could be the difference.

Bryan Ruiz and Kostas Mitroglou are still there and could stun Mick Mccarthy’s side at Portman Road and the price on the Cottagers away win is dripping with value at 9/5.

Good luck, and dont forget to take advantage of those offers! For more football free bets offers take a look here.
