Previewing Man City vs Man United, Stoke vs Spurs and Bournemouth vs Crystal Palace
Manchester City may have the opportunity to clinch the Premier League title on their own patch against their biggest rivals. Pep’s men have enjoyed a tremendous season so far and their 3-1 success at Everton on March 31 brings them within three points of guaranteeing top spot.
They are heavily fancied to prevail here despite having played in midweek against Liverpool in the Champions League quarter-finals.
The Citizens have been priced up as 3/4 favourites with 888sport and despite Manchester United’s recent improvement in form, they should be able to secure a precious three points and bragging rights once again. It finished 0-0 here last season but goals are favoured in this encounter with Both Teams to Score? Yes expected to be a popular choice at 5/7.
David Silva found the net when these sides met in December and the mercurial Spaniard is 33/10 to get his name onto the score-sheet once again.
Spurs Could Inflict Further Misery on Stoke
Spurs are aiming to continue their unbeaten Premier League record in 2018 when they travel to face Stoke on April 7. Mauricio Pochettino’s side were victorious at Stamford Bridge for the first time since 1990 last weekend and they are widely expected to pick up all three points in Staffordshire.
It’s hard to make a case for Stoke with Paul Lambert’s side failing to muster a single shot on target during their limp 3-0 defeat to Arsenal on April 1. The Potters can be backed at 8/1 but most punters will be eyeing up the 7/20 available on the visitors.
Stoke are embroiled in a relegation battle and they will be hoping that a number of their rivals drop points this weekend. Crystal Palace aren’t out of trouble just yet but Roy Hodgson’s men have been dealt a kind-looking fixture-list and should be able to drag themselves clear of the dreaded drop-zone. They have been tipped to struggle at the Vitality Stadium however as they travel to face mid-table Bournemouth on April 7th.
A draw appears the logical outcome for this fixture and is available at 23/10 with Betfair.
