We end the Sunday Premier League action with one of the season highlights as we lock ourselves in for another Manchester Derby.
Manchester United host bitter rivals Manchester City, who head here fresh from winning the League Cup at Wembley last Sunday.
City look booked for second with Liverpool still the runaway leaders despite losing to Watford last weekend – City are 22 points off Liverpool still!
United are firmly in the hunt for a top 4/5 place too, so have plenty to play for though so we should be in for a decent clash.
The match odds see City as short as 1.55 despite being the away side, with the draw 4.20 and Man Utd 5.75.
The sides have already met this season in the league – that ended Man City 1-2 Man Utd – so the Red Devils will be looking to complete their first league double over the sides since the 2009/10 season.
This repeat fixture last season ended Man Utd 0-2 Man City – a repeat of that score can be backed at 9.00. City are also unbeaten in the last 5 repeat fixtures.
The sides also met in the League Cup this season and that resulted in a win each.
It’s generally a clash that sees goals though – 5 of the last 7 head-to-heads went OVER 2.5 GOALS, so the 1.66 for a repeat of this is sure to be popular.
This is also backed up with both teams having scored in 4 of the last 5 head-to-heads, and also in 3 of the last 5 repeat fixtures. Both teams to score is on offer at 1.70.
The scoring markets see City’s Aguero on offer at 1.83 (anytime) or 4.33 (1st) – but he went off on Sunday’s League Cup final with a nasty gash on his shin so the team news should be checked beforehand to see if he’s playing.
If he doesn’t then City’s Jesus at 2.00 (anytime) or 4.75 (1st) might be worth looking at.
Looking at the United players, it’s Martial who is the shortest at 2.60 (anytime) or 6.50 (1st).
It’s a game that City should be winning, but with little to play for in the league at the moment there is every chance United could take advantage. They will also have the home crowd on their side, so we’ll take a chance on Man Utd/Draw 2.37 in the ‘Double Chance’ market. This means we’ll have Man Utd and the Draw on our side.
BEST BET: MAN UTD/DRAW DOUBLE CHANCE @2.37
