Milner - Dzeko (Manchester City)

Man City v Southampton Betting Preview
There can’t be any more slip ups from the Citizens after only managing a point at Arsenal last weekend. They will look to their immense home form this season to get three points in the bag to lift them closer to the title. The Saints can be a tricky side to handle at times, but the Citizens are heavy favourites to get the win on the board.

Man City v Southampton Betting Tips:
There have been plenty of goals in recent meetings between these two four of the last five have one over 2.5 goals so that looks to be a good start for your betting. The Citizens were frustrated in their visit to St Mary’s earlier in the season, only taking a 1-1 draw. It was a 1-1 draw against Arsenal last weekend which saw their title hopes hit a little road bump, but they start the weekend four points back of leaders Liverpool but with two games in hand over them. So still a big opportunity for them and they have dropped just the three home points at the Etihad this season. That’s pretty immense form to back and they have won their last two matches there scoring six unanswered goals in total.

City have kept clean sheets in 57% of their home matches this season and they have scored at a rate of 3.4 goals per game. In the anytime goalscorer markets, Sergio Aguero is still set to miss the game as he recovers from a hamstring problem, so Edin Dzeko and Alvaro Negredo are top options at Even money in the market, with Yaya Toure at 11/8. Dzeko incidentally has scored in two of his three Premier League matches against the Saints. City have actually only won three of the last ten against the Saints in the top flight, but they have now posted back to back wins over them at the Etihad in the league. Would look for a Both Teams To Score wager as both teams have been on the scoresheet in each of the last five meetings in all competitions between these two.

The Saints are in a decent bit of nick having won three of their last four. Their one defeat in that run was a loss at White Hart Lane when they blew an early 2-0 lead against the Lilywhites. Mauricio Pochettino’s men only need to shut up shop in that one, but they decided to stick to their open play and got punished. They responded well though with a 4-0 thrashing of Newcastle last weekend. Jay Rodriguez netted a couple in that game and is a 3/1 shot in the anytime goalscorer market, the same price as Ricky Lambert. The Saints have posted a W6 D4 L6 record on the road this season so anything can happen with them. They have won three and lost two of their last five away from St Mary’s.

Prediction
Southampton have won five and lost three of their last 10 EPL matches against City. But they have lost on their last two visits there. Pressure is on City to deliver and the Saints may not get enough of the game to take the win, but there is a reasonable chance of it going over 2.5 goals for a price of 1/2.

Arsenal v Man City Betting Preview
The title challenge from Arsenal this season may have already fallen by the wayside. But a win here would at least keep their spirits alive and stop the arrest which looks as if they may even end up missing out on the Champions League. Their confidence has been dented badly over the last week, whereas, in contrast, City’s have been growing and growing.

Arsenal v Man City Betting Tips:
The Gunners need to find a way to pick themselves up somehow after a tough week. There was that 6-0 drubbing by Chelsea and then they couldn’t hold on to a lead back at the Emirates in the week against Swansea. It wasn’t a great ninety minutes from Arsenal either, more a decent ten minutes in the second half which almost gave them three points. The Gunners have now won just two of their last seven matches played and their season is in big danger of slipping away from them. They have won just one of their last three home games in the league as well now (W1 D2) so not firing on all cylinders there. Olivier Giroud though has scored 3 goals in his last 2 home games and is trading at 7/4 in the anytime goalscorer market.

The Gunners took a 6-3 drubbing at the Etihad back in December and so it’s hard to find confidence in them for the rematch. You won’t often see Arsenal as underdogs with the bookies at home. But they have only posted one win in their last four home matches against City, and in three of those Arsenal failed to score. Those recent draws against Man Utd and Swansea at the Emirates have blotted what has in general been a good home season for the Gunners, whose record stands at W10 D4 L1 on home turf. They have only lost one of their last 17 home matches in all competitions. Interestingly there have been six red cards in the last seven Premier League meetings between the two sides and five of those have come in the last three meetings at the Emirates.

There should be goals in this one, so would look over the 2.5 goal mark. City are running in some nice form, getting up a head of steam to finish off the season with. They took a 3-0 win at Old Trafford in the week with relative ease and they will look for a big three points here to keep up the pressure on Chelsea in the title race. In beating Arsenal earlier in the season, City scored six goals from their seven shots on target. The Citizens have only lost one of their last seven against the Gunners in all competitions and are firm favourites here.  Edin Dzeko and Alvaro Negredo are priced up at 7/4 options in the anytime goalscorer market. City are unbeaten in their last nine away matches, winning their last two on the bounce and have kept clean sheets in four of their last five road games.

Prediction
Hard to see Arsenal having the resilience needed to get a win against an in form City at the moment. They are going into it on the back of a tough week, while City are motoring now, having kept clean sheets in their last five Premier League games. Big value at Evens to back City outright.

Nasri - Negredo - Navas (City)

Man City v Sunderland Betting Preview
Will it be to the north east or the north west that the first domestic piece of silverware will be heading to on Sunday? Manuel Pellegrini’s quadruple-chasing (more realistically treble-chasing) City are favourites to claim the honours at Wembley, but the Black Cats have had something going for them in Cup matches this season. They only have to look back at Wigan’s win over City in last season’s FA Cup final for some positivity. After some big wins on their way to the final, do they have something special left for the challenge of City?

Just about all the football betting coverage you could ever need can be found at online betting site William Hill. Not only do they offer great ACCA insurance for your wagers, there is fantastic 0-0 Bore Draw Insurance on the Correct Score and Double Result markets for games that end goalless. You can also grab some great First Goalscorer insurance with the bookie refunding lost stakes on a selection that doesn’t score first, but nets the second goal of the game.

Man City v Sunderland Betting Tips:
Well the Citizens are running as clear favourites here. They have the goalscoring power at their disposal to  brush aside most teams, and are expected to cap their trip to Wembley with the trophy. However, that was expected to happen on their last visit there, in facing Wigan in last season’s FA Cup Final, where as heavy favourites, they lost 1-0. It hasn’t been going too smoothly of late for them as well, with goals drying up a bit and they have lost their last two games against the Black Cats as well, including a league defeat already this season. However City do of course have big match winners in their forward ranks, and in the Anytime Goalscorer market, it is City’s players who are dominating. Sergio Aguero is 4/7 favourite, with Edin Dzeko and Stevan Jovetic at 6/5 and a clutch of other City players at 3/1. They’ll get their chances in the game.

However, they have only managed to find three goals in their last five matches in all competitions though and their form has gone patchy. It started with that home defeat against Chelsea in the Premier League, which seemed to shake them up a bit. With just two wins in their last five games in all competitions, it’s not the kind of form you expect from City and they only scraped a 1-0 home win over Stoke on the weekend too. They have struggled to find a winning touch against the Black Cats recently too, having won one of their last five against the Black Cats now. So perhaps this may not turn out to be the big goal fest that everyone is expecting it to be.  Under 2.5 goals is trading at a price of 6/4 with William Hill, while over is at 1/2. Pellegrini’s men are strong 1/6 shots To Lift The Trophy.

City fans can take a huge positive after Sunderland’s poor performance at the Emirates against Arsenal on the weekend. Gus Poyet’s men were embarrassed in a 4-1 defeat and were second best all over the pitch. Not a confidence booster ahead of a cup final, but maybe they had one eye on Wembley. The Black Cats have been pretty good in Cup games this season, and they have taken a hard road to the final. They upset Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the quarter finals and then deservedly won on aggregate in their two-legged semi final against Manchester United. Resilience and grit were both big features of their success in those two ties and they will need all of that again at Wembley. Frankly, if they play as badly as they did against the Gunners on the weekend, they aren’t going to get close to the trophy.

The margin and manner of defeat against Arsenal was a bit of a shock, because they have tightened up defensively very well lately. One of their star players has been Adam Johnson since the start of the year and he is trading at 4/1 in the anytime goalscorer market, alongside Steven Fletcher and Jozy Altidore. Sunderland have posted a W3 D1 L1 record in their last five against Man City and their three wins have all been bya 1-0 scoreline (their last four wins over City have been by that scoreline). There’s a trend and if you fancy it to continue then a Sunderland 1-0 Correct Score is up at a long shot of 28/1. A more realistic City 2-0 victory is trading at 6/1 in the market. Sunderland have only failed to find the back of the net in one of their last eleven in all competitions, and Both Teams To Score is trading at Even money with William Hill. Will they get enough of the ball to trouble the Citizens at Wembley though?

Prediction
Big difference in price for the game and that should tell at the end of the day. Sunderland have been a great cup side this season, but would still have to back City to come away with the win. Maybe tighter than expected, but a City To Win To Nil bet for a price of 5/4 looks good to back the Citizens with.

Nasri - Negredo - Navas (City)

Man City v Barcelona Betting Preview
This will be the first competitive meeting between the two sides in European competition, and hopefully it will live up to its expectation. The Citizens start the match at the Etihad as underdogs, as their home defeat against Bayern Munich will be on people’s minds. They face another of Europe’s elite now as they try and prove that they are ready to live among such illustrious company.

Man City v Barcelona Betting Tips:
It is the first time in the knockout stages of the Champions League for Man City and what a tough test they were handed. They Citizens took 15 points away from their group campaign, finishing second behind Bayern Munich, which is partly reason (with luck involved of course) as to why they have drawn such a tough match. But this is what City are looking to thrive on and the big component here is going to be Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho’s races to get fit for it. City have been missing both of their influential inputs lately. It has left the bookies hovering on prices of 5/4 for Aguero to score at anytime in the game, while Alvaro Negredo and Edin Dzeko are around 2/1.

A massive asset to City of course will be Pellegrini himself, who has performed wonders in the competition before. He got Villarreal to the quarter finals twice against the odds, and last season he did it again with Malaga. In his managerial career in Spain, he is no stranger to facing up to Barcelona. However, from 22 previous encounters against the Blaugrana, Pellegrini won just four of them, losing 14. City lost against Bayern Munich at home on Match Day Two, but that has been their only defeat in their last 23 European fixtures on home soil. City’s record at home against Spanish clubs is W2 D2 L0, the most recent encounter coming against Real Madrid in last season’s group stage, the game ending 1-1.

Would expect goals at both ends and a Both Teams To Score wager is up at 4/9, which isn’t a surprising price. Going over 2.5 goals in the match will fetch you odds of around 4/7 with Paddy Power too. Barcelona topped Group H in the first round, but they did suffer a defeat, losing away at Ajax. They are looking for their seventh successive quarter final appearance, and there could be hope for City to get something out of this because Barca have only won one of their last six matches on the road in European competition, losing three of them. So there are so vulnerabilities and that would point to perhaps a little value in a Man City – Draw Double Result.

Lionel Messi has been in fine form since his return from injury, with five goals in three games and manager Gerardo Martino doesn’t think he’s even fully fit yet. In last season’s round of sixteen, Barcelona lost 2-0 away at AC Milan and then ran riot winning the return leg 4-0. That is the size of the task facing City here. The Spaniards though haven’t won on their last five visits to England, most recently losing in London 1-0 at Chelsea in the 2011/12 semi finals. Barcelona’s overall away record against English sides is W6 D8 L14 so not a place that they have travelled to particularly well. They have not won on their four previous visits to Manchester either (a D2 L2 record at Old Trafford).

Prediction
If both play their natural games, this should be fantastic. Barcelona will still get more of the ball, but the last thing City want to do is expose their back line to counter attacks, as Messi can punish them. The Citizens need to get something on the board to defend here and there could well be value in shooting for that City – Draw Double Chance at 1/2 with Paddy Power, given the fact that Barcelona aren’t travelling well.

Man City v Chelsea Betting Preview
One of the big clashes of the FA Cup this weekend, will see one of the front runners fall away from the competition. The two sides return to the Etihad, where Chelsea recently took a 1-0 win in the Premier League, snapping City’s great home from there. Will the Citizens be able to exact some revenge by dumping Mourinho’s men out of the tournament?

Nice coverage and new customers registering an account can get up to a free £50 bet as a welcome bonus.

Man City v Chelsea Betting Tips:
How will Manuel Pellegrini approach this? He will probably take a strong arm to this one, not only to get revenge over Chelsea, but to get the City motors firing on all cylinders again. The winner of this one will probably be firm favourite to lift the trophy, as five of the last FA Cup finals have featured one of them. There has only been four meetings in the FA Cup between the two sides, and City have won the last three in a row (including last season’s semi final). You know that City still aren’t going to give up too much on home turf, and they have lost just one of their last nine FA Cup matches (last year’s final against Wigan).

On home soil, the Citizens have only lost one of their last eleven in the FA Cup, winning nine of them. This season in their three FA Cup matches, they have scored ten goals, with Alvaro Negredo banging in three, and Sergio Aguero with four. With Aguero out, Negredo is 7/4 joint favourite in the anytime goalscorer market along with Edin Dzeko. They will want to put in a stronger attacking performance and will probably have learnt from their mistakes in the recent Premier League clash. The last time they went three matches without a win incidentally, was in February of last year. They’ll go as narrow favourites which means that they are up at some decent value, despite not winning either of their last two matches. They also got a rest in midweek when their league game with Sunderland was cancelled because of the weather.

So Chelsea have already beaten Man City twice this season, so can they make it a third? Tough game and there probably will be some changes in the Blues line up from the league meeting. They are still the only English side to win at the Etihad this season, and they will be banking on their defensive strengths to keep them in the match. The Stamford Bridge outfit have kept five clean sheets in their last seven FA Cup matches and they have been very defensively strong lately. Chelsea have lost just one of their last 32 FA Cup matches, winning 25 of them.

You know that if Chelsea are going to get another win over City here, they are going to have to keep the scoreline down, because they cannot match the Citizens for firepower. Under 2.5 goals is priced up at Even money for this one and three of the last four meetings between them at the Etihad have gone under. In their four previous FA Cup meetings with the Citizens, Chelsea have only managed to get two goals on the board, so probably not looking at a high numbers in this one. Organization and discipline are Chelsea’s strengths, and no team works harder off the ball than them. A Chelsea Draw No Bet is priced up at 6/4 and it may be a tempting wager for punters, with Chelsea unbeaten in twelve.

Prediction
This is probably going to be another tense affair, unless Chelsea’s defence crumbles. Tough to split them, because you know Chelsea are going to keep their shape and look for more counter attacking opportunities. There’s better value in backing City here outright compared to what they were offered at in the league game. It’s an appealing enough price.

Aguero (Manchester City)

Man City v Sunderland Betting Preview
Have the wheels come off Man City’s season? No, it’s not panic button time yet, but they are really missing Sergio Aguero’s input. After losing at home for the first time this season against Chelsea, the Citizens were expected to respond in an easy looking match at Norwich on the weekend. It didn’t happen and they were kept at bay in a 0-0 draw. Is a backlash going to come against the Black Cats back at the Etihad?

Man City v Sunderland Betting Tips:
Who saw a 0-0 draw happening at Carrow Road on the weekend? The big response, the big backlash from a  wounded beast just didn’t emerge and really City didn’t create that many clear cut chances against a well organised Norwich defence. So suddenly, after their big winning streak in the top flight, questions are being asked of them. That’s two games without a win now, something which looked unthinkable at the start of the year. The result in this game would have even been in question, but City now are under a bit of scrutiny and this is going to be a test of their mental strengths and composure more than their ability on the pitch.

They still have an abundance of attacking talent, but with Sergio Aguero out and Alvaro Negredo not quite looking at his best, things just haven’t gone right for them over the last couple of games. But surely this is the game where three points will come for them, as they have been pretty immense at home this season. City start the midweek fixture list down in third and need a response. At home they have posted eleven wins and the one defeat so far and have scored a hatful of goals. They were stymied last time out by a brilliant tactical masterclass of counter attacking football from Chelsea at the Etihad.

If they need more motivation, then they suffered a 1-0 defeat at the Stadium of Light back in November. In the anytime goalscorer market, Alvaro negredo is still priced up as 4/7 favourite, with Edin Dzeko at 8/13. Stevan Jovetic who looks really sharp may be worth a shot at Even money too. This has been a pretty high scoring fixture, City scoring three or more goals in each of their last four Premier League home games against the Black Cats. They won this fixture 3-0 last season and defensively they are strong and a Man City To Win To Nil bet at 10/11 wouldn’t really be too far out of the picture for your options here.

Sunderland had a good run of league form snapped on the weekend, as they surprisingly lost at home to Hull 2-0. That was a shock because Gus Poyet’s men had posted three wins and a draw in their four matches prior to that. Still, you can switch to their away form, where they are unbeaten in their last six in the top flight. They have become stronger as the season has worn on, and have lost just two of their last ten. A win away at Man City still looks a pretty tough thing to achieve though, but they have had big successes recently on the road (especially in the League Cup), and may be worth covering in a Sunderland – Draw Double Result shot. The draw part of that would obviously be the most likely outcome. All said and done it is a tough ask for them.

Prediction
You kind of get the feeling that City would be happy just to scrape through this one with three points and therefore it may not be a big of a win as many people would expect. If you can shop around and take a shot at Sunderland +2.25 Asian Handicap which should be priced up around 4/6, or Even a +2 at 21/20, there could be value.

William Hill

It will probably go down as one of the best performances of the Premier League season. What are we talking about? Chelsea’s victory at the Etihad over Manchester City of course. Jose Mourinho got it tactically right again, showing his unquestionable brilliance when it comes to setting up his side for the big games. A goal from Branislav Ivanovic saw the visiting Blues ruin Man City’s perfect home record for the season in the Premier League.

It was a masterclass of counter attacking, and along with the goal scored, Chelsea also hit the woodwork three times and it would be hard to deny that they weren’t fully worth the three points. Naturally the win for Chelsea, which saw them move level on points with City, two points back of leaders Arsenal, has caused a shuffling in the Premier League winner odds.

William Hill moved the Citizens out to 5-6 from 8-13, while Chelsea were being priced up at 9-4 despite Jose Mourinho refusing to really talk up their chances.

But just to put into betting context what Chelsea overcame, they were 7-2 outside shots to win the match at the Etihad before kick off, even though punters had started deserting City a little more once it was announced that the influential Fernandinho would be missing the match. City had been 9-10 for the three points, but had drifted out to 11-10 during the build up.

A 1-0 Correct Score bet would have returned odds of 14-1 for any punter who had made that call, and if they did, they would have been happy to see Chelsea defined by the woodwork so many times during the game. Arsenal stand pat at 9-2 to win the league title after moving back to the top of the pile on Sunday with a 2-0 home win over Crystal Palace.

Paddy Power

Chelsea’s Samuel Eto’o was the hero of the day when Chelsea met up with Manchester United in the Premier League recently. The hattrick hero gave the Blues a comfortable home win over the Red Devils, but a much tougher match awaits them on Monday evening, as Jose Mourinho takes his troops to the Etihad to take on the Champions-elect, Man City.

The Citizens have been on fire at home this season, having won eleven in a row and having scored almost fifty goals in the process. While Chelsea look defensively more sound than the Citizens, can the Londoners produce enough going forward to stand toe to toe with Man City?

The Blues have struggled to get their strikers going this season, so will Samuel Eto’o be the one to help Chelsea get something out of this top clash? Online betting site Paddy Power have a Money Back Special running for the big game.

If Chelsea striker Samuel Eto’o scores at anytime during the match, then the bookmaker will refund all losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Correct Score and Scorecast single bets placed on the match. The maximum refund is £100 per customer and it applies to bets placed before kick off only.

City top the pile currently in the search of their second Premier League title, and they kick off with a three point advantage over Chelsea.

It was an ominous show of power from Manuel Pellegrini’s men, and completed four wins from four league matches in January. Impressively, three of those victories came on the road. They are up to an eight match winning streak right now and they will probably have too much firepower for Chelsea to stand up to. It is natural to go and look at over 2.5 goals when the Citizens are at home, an option trading at a price of 4/6 with Stan James. At the Etihad this season in the league, City have fired off 48 goals and have conceded just the eight. They have won 19 and lost just one of their last 21 home league matches in the English top flight, and the last eleven in a row have been won there. Impressive. Sergio Aguero has scored 15 in his last 12 appearances at the Etihad, but he is a doubt after picking up an injury against Spurs after scoring the opener.

But it doesn’t seem to matter if Aguero isn’t available, as City have more than enough firepower in reserve. Edin Dzeko has scored in his last three Premier League appearances, and with Alvaro Negredo going well at home this season, both make decent options in the Anytime Goalscorer market, both trading around Even Money with Stan James. City haven’t lost any of their last six league matches played on a Monday, but the last time they did lose in a Monday match, it was against Chelsea back in 2011. So City have the offense, while Chelsea will be banking on their defensive strength to avoid defeat. Chelsea can’t match what City have available going forward; they don’t have the quality options up front and they don’t have the ruthlessness in front of goal that City do. Chelsea could only manage a home 0-0 draw against West Ham during midweek, despite firing in 39 shots. At the back, Chelsea have kept clean sheets in their last three away games and have kept five in their last six in all competitions.

Keeping a clean sheet against the likes of West Ham and Stoke is a different matter entirely to keeping one against the City. Both teams scored in the previous meeting this season, with Chelsea winning 2-1 at the Bridge and Both Teams To Score is trading at 4/6 with Stan James. The Blues have suffered defeat in their last four Premier League trips to the Etihad so perhaps further reason to get behind the Citizens. It wouldn’t be any surprise to see Jose Mourinho set things up to get a point out of this, as they are pretty organised. Five their last eight Premier league matches on a Monday have ended in a draw. Chelsea are unbeaten in three on the road now, but look as some of their big away games, in taking draws at Man Utd, Tottenham and Arsenal, you can see a trend there. It should warn of caution about backing them to get three points, because they may not bust a gut in trying to get one. Settling for a point is better than a loss on the road.

Prediction
Man City just have the firepower to overhaul anything that Chelsea’s somewhat limit attack can throw at them. So this may be a case of City just knocking on the door all match, unless Chelsea can find a way to take the sting out of them. Still, City are good value to back outright at 5/6 with Stan James.
