Sunday's Sport: Football, cricket and rugby to look forward to

It’s another busy Sunday of sport with action to take in from the Premier League, T20 World Cup and Gallagher Premiership.

Starting with football, Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal will look to stay ahead of the pack as they make the trip to Southampton.

OddsSouthampton 5/1, Draw 31/10, Arsenal 4/7

With nine wins from their first 10 games of the Premier League campaign, it has been a dream start for Arsenal as they get set to face Southampton at St Mary’s. A 1-0 win over PSV in the Europa League on Thursday night meant the Gunners have now won all of their last eight games in all competitions. 

After a tough run, Saints got back to winning ways last time out against Bournemouth with a 1-0 victory against the Cherries. While Arsenal are firm favourites ahead of their trip to St Mary's, they will be wary of an upset, especially after Southampton secured a win on home soil against Chelsea earlier this season.

OddsIndia 1/2, Pakistan 13/8

India and Pakistan will both be looking to get their T20 World Cup campaigns off to flying starts when they meet in Melbourne. A win and bragging rights are on the line, as these two rivals and contenders for the title, go head to head. Supporters will be hoping the weather gods are kind, with some suggestion that heavy rain could have an impact on proceedings at the famous Melbourne Cricket Ground. 

After hosts Australia suffered a heavy defeat to New Zealand in the opening match of the tournament, fellow title contenders India are favourites at 1/2 to make a winning start against Pakistan. 

Rugby Union Premiership: Sale put perfect record on the line

OddsSale Sharks 2/7, Harlequins 11/4

The unbeaten Sale Sharks will put their perfect winning record on the line when they play hosts to Harlequins on Sunday. Sale have been outstanding at the start of this season with five wins from five so far. The Sharks have been excellent in defence and it has been the foundation of their success so far this term. 

With just 92 points conceded after their first five games, the Sharks have the meanest defence in the league. Harlequins will put this defence through its paces though as they make the trip to Manchester, with Quins the fourth-highest scorers in the league. 

Sale are not without their own attacking threats which is why they are the favourites going into this encounter between two sides with play-off ambitions.
