KevMac previews the week-end’s action in England including a match that will go a way that is long deciding the destinatioon of this season’s title.
Liverpool v Manchester City
LIVERPOOL’S title defence could be effectively over if they suffer more misery that is anfield Manchester City come calling.
The Reds went nearly four years unbeaten in the home nevertheless now face the outlook of losing three regarding the spin at their fortress.
Lowly Burnley and Brighton have inflicted losses that are 1-0 the champions in their last two Anfield outings while it’s now four games without a win on home turf.
So City couldn’t have picked a better time to head to Merseyside as they look to take another step that is giant winning straight back the English top.
Pep Guardiola’s males have actually won 13 regarding the spin in most tournaments yet another success at Anfield would fire them 10 points away from Liverpool with a casino game in hand.
It’s do or perish for Jurgen Klopp’s part the next day and they’re 9/4 outsiders at McBookie with City 11/10 while the draw 13/5.
It had been a cagey draw that is 1-1 these sides met at the Etihad earlier in the season but I can see this being more open.
Both teams to score should come up but it’s poor value at best 33/50 with SBK
Over 2.5 goals pays 13/17 with the same firm while the odds increase to 13/7 for over 3.5 strikes, which has come up in two of the last three meetings.
City have looked much more balanced since Gabriel Jesus’ return from injury and the Brazilian has netted in three of his last four matches.
He also scored against the Reds at the Etihad him here for anytime scorer at 41/20 (Unibet).
Manchester so I fancy United v Everton
Manchester United are City’s closest challengers at the very top utilizing the 9-0 demolition of Southampton in midweek making them three points adrift.
They can wear some pressure today but face a game that is tough home to Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton.
The Toffees won at Leeds in midweek and have the firepower to cause United problems.
This could be a tight one so I fancy under 2.5 goals at 6/5 with McBookie, who price a one-goal margin that is winning either group at a tempting 8/5.
Aston Villa v Arsenal
Today’s action begins with a lunchtime clash between Aston Villa and Arsenal into the Midlands.
The Gunners are without keeper Bernd Leno and stopper David Luiz because of suspension system so Villa are tempting for a victory at 17/10 (McBookie).
But I’m planning to play it just a little safer and go after objectives rather. Over 2.5 hits will pay 14/19 at SBK while BTTS is 8/13 at William Hill.
Villa talisman Jack Grealish is 14/5 with McBookie for an objective and that appears value that is decent
