TOMORROW, Saturday, January 19 and Sunday, January 20, football fans across Europe's top leagues will be treated to some scintillating football games and JustBet is on the ball to preview some of these match-ups for you.

To kick things off we head to the 'Theatre of Dreams' where the irrepressible Manchester United host the dogged Brighton, then we head over to Spain to witness the inconsistent powerhouse Real Madrid and title contender Sevilla slug it out, and we close the day with the biggest game of the weekend with Arsenal and Chelsea in a sumptuous London derby.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Manchester United will be seeking their seventh-straight win in all competitions as they welcome Brighton to Old Trafford on Saturday. Since coming in as caretaker manager after the sacking of the 'Special One' Jose Mourinho, Solskjaer's reign has been a resounding success so far, with Manchester United beating Tottenham at Wembley last weekend to spark hopes among the United faithfuls of a top-four finish that appeared unlikely following their disastrous start to the season.

While confidence is high among United fans with the team now playing some breathtaking football at times, Brighton could provide a stern test after being narrowly beaten at home by league leaders Liverpool last Saturday.

The Seagulls have beaten United twice at their home ground since been promoted to the top flight, however, they are not as strong on the road. The stats are stacked heavily in United's favour as they are unbeaten in their 10 previous league and cup matches at home to Brighton, winning seven of the 10 games without conceding.

The betting tips? Manchester United win.

This weekend highlight in La Liga sees Real Madrid hosting Sevilla, who are level on points with them. Madrid had to work hard and needed a late goal to see off a pesky Real Betis in their last game, while Sevilla were beaten 0-2 away at Athletic Bilbao.

Level on points, with 33 from 19 games played, both Real Madrid and Sevilla enter Saturday's game with indifferent forms. They trail leaders Barcelona by 10 points and it now appears likely that the Catalans will retain their title.

Since the summer departure of talisman Cristiano Ronaldo, Madrid's league form has been patchy at best — though the sacking of Julen Lopetegui and the appointment of Santiago Solari as full-time manager has improved their performances somewhat, they have been far from being the attacking force that fans have come to expect. Madrid have won four of their last six games in contrast to Sevilla who have won just once in their last six, drawing four and losing once. Unlike most teams in La Liga though, Sevilla have had the better of Real Madrid in most of their recent meetings, they thrashed Madrid 3-0 at home in September, and beat them 3-2 at home last season. In the last five meetings between both sides, Sevilla have won three with Madrid winning two.

The betting tip? DRAW

JustBet closes the big show with a blockbuster London derby match-up with Arsenal against Chelsea.

Though both clubs would have been hoping for a battle for the title, they are having to make-do with a fight for a top-four finish. Their match-up earlier in the season was a thriller, with Arsenal fighting back from 2-0 down to go into half-time level. They eventually allowed Marcos Alonzo to score the winner late in the second half to lose the game 2-3.

Arsenal struggles on the road continued last time out when they were beaten away to West Ham, however, at home they are a completely different team as they currently are unbeaten in their last 10 games. On the other hand, Chelsea do travel well, picking up 22 of their 47 points in away games. With Arsenal's strong home form and Chelsea's impressive away record, fans will witness a sizzling encounter come Saturday. Both sides will want to start the game on the front foot with the aim of gaining the early advantage, however, most of their scoring are done in the second halves of games this season. Arsenal have a leaky defence on the field and issues off it, as their best player Mesut Ozil has been constantly left out of the squad by Manager Unai Emery, with the coach not even bothering to hide behind injuries or illness anymore. Ozil's inclusion or non-inclusion in this week's squad could go a far way in deciding the winner of this massive London derby.

The betting tip? Arsenal Win
