Manchester City v Swansea Betting Preview

Can City get their season going? They have been through some trying times of late and boss Manuel Pellegrini has been feeling the heat, largely for City looking very one dimensional and not having a plan b up their sleeve. Swansea have already taken a victory in Manchester this season and will be looking to claim another big scalp on the road.

With the return of Premier League betting this weekend, there is a great 20% acca win bonus to be picked up at online bookmaker Paddy Power. Place a 5-fold or bigger acca with the bookie on top UK matches and they will pay out a 20% win bonus on top of your winnings. This can add tremendous value to your return and is well worth a look.

Manchester City v Swansea Betting Tips

It hasn’t been the greatest of season from the Citizens. Still, this has been their fourth ever best start to a Premier League campaign. They are even one point better off at this stage than they were at this point last term. They have won just the one game in their last six in all competitions, but do have a strong home record against the Swans. The Citizens have won 11 and lost only one of their thirteen previous home games against Swansea, so they are running rightly as odds-on favourites. They booked a comfortable 3-0 result in this corresponding fixture last season. Manchester City have won four and lost just one of the last six Premier League matches against Swansea.

They are a solid home side and under Manuel Pellegrini, Manchester City have lost two and won 20 of their 24 Premier League matches at the Etihad. They have had their blips there this season though, starting with a shock home defeat against Stoke and snatching a late draw against champions-elect Chelsea. They have actually scored more goals on the road than they have done at the Etihad, but they still average more than a respectable 1.8 goals per game on home turf. Their latest problems were compounded in a 2-2 draw at QPR, a point rescued by the brilliant Sergio Aguero. They would be seriously floundering without him, and Aguero, who is looking to bag his 12th Premier League goal of the season is a strong 5/2 favourite in the first goalscorer market.

As for Swansea’s, Garry Monk has managed to guide them to their best ever start to a Premier League season, having picked up 18 from eleven matches. They went into the international break on the back of a win, coming from behind to topple the fragile Arsenal at the Liberty Stadium. That is the second big scalp they have claimed this season because they also took a victory at Old Trafford against Man Utd on the opening weekend of the season. That victory at Old Trafford has been their only away win of the season though, since going W0 D2 L2 on the road. The draw/Man City half time/full time bet may be considered her considering that Swansea have conceded the highest percentage of second half goals this season. Wilfried Bony may be worth a look in the anytime goalscorer market for 7/2 at Paddy Power as he has scored two goals in his one appearance against Man City in the Premier League.

Manchester City v Swansea Betting Odds

Man City 2/5, Draw 4/1, Swansea 7/1

Manchester City v Swansea Predictions

The Welsh outfit haven’t produced the kind of away form to confidently back to take advantage of the stuttering form of City at the Etihad. So the home side should pick up the three points, but it could just be worth avoiding the match outright all together and simply targeting profit on Sergio Aguero in the first goalscorer or anytime goalscorer markets.

Football News

It has been a rough run of form for Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini to endure. It started with them blowing a 2-0 half time lead out in Russia against CSKA Moscow in the UEFA Champions League back on October 21st. It has pretty much been downhill since then.

A few days after that blow to their confidence, a wasteful City fell to a 2-1 defeat at West Ham in the Barclays Premier League, before losing at home against an under strength Newcastle side in the League Cup.

While they bounced back with a league win in the Manchester derby against Man Utd, it was a game in which they were hanging on for dear life in the final 20 minutes of the game, to record a 1-0 victory, even with the Red Devils down to ten men after 40 minutes. But then came another hammer blow during midweek as they lost 2-1 at home against CSKA Moscow.

So now City’s chances of qualifying from their group are pretty slim. They face Roma and Bayern Munich (the flawless Germans having already qualified for the round of sixteen) in their final two matches and find themselves two points adrift of Roma and CSKA Moscow in the chase for the second qualifying spot. They will have to go without Yaya Toure and Fernandinho who were both sent off on Wednesday against CSKA Moscow. City are 4/1 outsiders to qualify for the round of sixteen.

So with City falling to their third defeat in their last four matches, online bookmaker Skybet trimmed Pellegrini from 14/1 to 6/1 to be the next Premier League managerial casualty of the season. The Citizens are also six points behind Premier League leaders Chelsea and are 7/2 to retain their title.

Sky Bet footballer trader Chris Spicer said: “City have failed in their last two Champions League games to outscore a vastly inferior CSKA side and it could cost the Chilean Pellegrini his job.

“This competition was undoubtedly for focus for the City board this season and paired with an early League Cup exit, the tide is beginning to turn against their beleaguered manager.

“We left odds up on ‘Next Premier League manager to leave’ throughout their game and punters were taking any price they could about Pellegrini being next to go, backing him into 6/1.”

Manchester City - Carlos Tevez

QPR v Manchester City Betting Preview

What a slump in form that the reigning English champions are going through. City have had a rough time of things lately, but surely this has to be a winnable match for them. They hit the road to go down to London to face the struggling QPR who have lost four of their last five league games. Surely the Citizens can’t blow their lines in this one, can they?

Your QPR v Man City betting falls under the Betfred Double Delight/Hat Trick Heaven promotion. If your backed selection in the first goalscorer market goes on to score a second in the game, then the bookmaker will double your original odds. If your successful first goalscorer scores a hattrick in the game, Betfred will treble your original first goalscorer odds.

QPR v Manchester City Betting Tips

Will Harry Redknapp’s men be eying up the chance of claiming a scalp, but more importantly a massive three points? Well, that will be their ambition, but their form is pretty shocking. Rangers have posted a W1 D1 L4 record in their last six matches in the Premier League and really don’t look much of a threat. They are going to ship goals, but they did come away from Stamford Bridge with just a one goal defeat last weekend. Three of QPR’s last four defeats have seen them fall by just a one goal margin, so it could be worth taking a look at Man City to win by a one goal margin for a price of 11/4 at online bookmaker Betfred. You get the feeling that City would be happy enough with that.

Adding a bit of weight to that is the fact that City have beaten QPR by more than one goal in just one of four Premier League meetings. QPR have at least been showing a lot more spirit than they were at the start of the season. All of the R’s league points this season, all seven of them, have come at home this season and they have scored 78% of their goals on home turf too. They have conceded the first goal of the game in 80% of their league matches this season. Their record at Loftus Road reads W2 D1 L2 this season and have lost just one of their last four there. Charlie Austin is their best shot going forward to score at a price of 7/2 in the anytime goalscorer market.

Manchester City may need to grind in this one. City have taken just two wins in their last six matches played, and suffered a hammer blow of a home defeat against CSKA Moscow in the Champions League during the week. That leaves their qualification hopes very thin, so they may turn more attention back to the Premier League. City have just played with a lethargic, static air this season and the fluency that was there last season has gone. They are blessed with Sergio Aguero who has scored 11 goals in his last 12 Premier League appearances now and he is the 3/1 favourite in the First Goalscorer market for QPR v Man City betting.

Their league form is OK though having said all that, having won four and lost one of their last five. But they really had to hang on for a 1-0 home win over 10-man Manchester United last weekend. Something isn’t clicking, but they have match winners in their ranks. City’s away from in the English top flight is solid, as it reads W3 D1 L1 this season, that defeat coming at West Ham in their last away game. The Citizens have failed to score in just one of their league matches this season and they have averaged 2.2 goals per game on the road this season. QPR’s defence hasn’t stood up to a lot of pressure this season, so you would imagine that this is a winnable game for City, but they aren’t a confident side at the moment, so it may take something special like a moment from Sergio Aguero to get the three points.

QPR v Manchester City Betting Odds

Man City 4/9, Draw 10/3, QPR 6/1

QPR v Manchester City Predictions

Suddenly this is a stern test of City’s mettle. It shouldn’t be, it should be one of those games in which the ride in as heavy favourites and deliver the goods. Even with their confidence and energy low, they should still pick up the three points in the game, as Rangers aren’t good at the back. City may be made to sweat in the game and it’s worth backing the Citizens to win by a one goal margin.

Champions League

Manchester City v CSKA Moscow Betting Preview

This is the point where City really have to throw off the shackles a bit and go for the jugular. They need goals and they need group points with two tough games remaining after this one against Roma and Bayern Munich. Still, if they win on Wednesday night and Bayern beat Roma, City would climb into second place and things would look a bit brighter.

Champions League matches are covered by online bookmaker Bet365’s great Acca Win Bonus offer.

Manchester City v CSKA Moscow Betting Tips

Did Manchester City blow their Champions League hopes a couple of weeks ago? With a 2-0 away lead in Russia at half time, the Citizens capitulated and had to hold on for a share of the spoils in a 2-2 draw. It has left both of these desperate to pick up a win now and get themselves into a fight for a top two finish in the group. It was on November 5th of last year that City hosted CSKA Moscow at the Etihad and the Premier League outfit won 5-1. A bit of history repeating itself would do wonders for the Citizens this week. City have just the two points from their opening three group matches, taking draws against Roma and CSKA along with their defeat against Bayern Munich.

City’s winning form at the Etihad in the UEFA Champions League is not good though. They have managed to record just two in their eight home fixtures so far in the competition. Even though they should be winning this one easily, it does raise a bit of doubt. Fortunately, they have the class of Sergio Aguero, who has now scored nine goals in his last eight outings for City. Aguero is 5/2 favourite in the first goalscorer market for the game against CSKA, with Edin Dzeko is at 4/1. Even though they had to struggle to hold on for a 1-0 win at home against ten man Man United on the weekend, will their resolve in getting through that have been just the filip that they needed?

That was City’s only win in their last four games in all competitions, and they haven’t looked a hugely confident at the moment. They do have only a short history against Russian opposition (all against CSKA Moscow) and have posted an unbeaten W2 D1 record in that period. CSKA Moscow have gone up against English opposition in twelve previous matches and the Russians have taken away a W3 D4 L5 record from that. They have never won in England in five previous attempts, taking a W0 D3 L2 record in the country. Leonid Slutski’s men need a win as much as City do, having picked up just one so far in the group after defeats against Roma and Bayern, before the point against City. They have scored in nine of their last eleven Champions League matches though.

Manchester City v CSKA Moscow Betting Odds

Man City 1/4, Draw 6/1, CSKA Moscow 11/1

Manchester City v CSKA Moscow Predictions

The Citizens have struggled to record clean sheets on the weekend, and barely kept one against 10-man United on the weekend. The Russians have enough in attack to get something on the board, and while City are heavy favourites for the win, there could be value in dabbling on both teams to score in the game.

What a ninety minutes of Manchester derby betting action it is promising to be at the Etihad on Sunday. The visiting Red Devils are still looking for their first away win of the new league season and how much would they enjoy it coming at the home of their bitter rivals? Quite a bit you would imagine. With City’s form stuttering and Manuel Pellegrini’s tactics coming under scrutiny, will the Red Devils be able to pounce?

But City have won five of the last six league matches against United and so the form is with them. They also have home advantage and won’t want their foes rolling in and storming the castle. The reigning English champions also really need a massive response after a difficult run of form from there, including a home defeat against Newcastle in the League Cup during the week.

Will the Citizens be able to deliver something close their 4-1 win in this corresponding fixture from last season?

Premier League Betting

The first big Manchester derby of the new Premier League season and both will desperately be eying up three points in this one. It is going to be a costly afternoon for anyone who comes out on the losing end of this Sunday lunchtime clash in the English top flight.

Manchester City need points to get their title challenge going again after winning just three of their last seven played in the Premier League. Manchester United meanwhile, for whom keeper David de Gea is the only man to have played every minute of action this season, they are looking to get past the fact that this is their worst start ever to a Premier League season.

Manchester derby 2014 odds & prediction

In the recent head to heads for the Manchester derby, it is the blue side of the city who are running hot. Five of the last six Manchester derbies have been won by the Citizens, including a massive 4-1 home victory in last season’s corresponding fixture. A repeat of that kind of result for the reigning champions would give them a huge fillip in confidence after a difficult week for them, including a defeat at West Ham in the league last weekend.

There is a wealth of high quality striking power which could be on display in the Manchester derby 2014. On the blue side of things there is Sergio Aguero and Edin Dzeko, and both have scored four goals in five league appearances against the Red Devils. On the red side of things, Wayne Rooney is back from suspension, and he is the all time leading goalscorer in Manchester derbies will eleven goals. Along with Radamel Falcao and Robin van Persie, United have the strike force to do damage too.

But new United boss Louis van Gaal is still looking for his first away win of the season and getting one at the Etihad is not going to be an easy thing, not with their defence looking very vulnerable at the moment. Will City’s more settled defence be able to keep the Red Devils at bay? There are mounting questions over Manuel Pellegrini’s tactical rigidness which has cost the reigning champions points this season. Both sides have been conceding goals and there is likely to be plenty of chances.

Manchester Derby 2014 Prediction

Seven of the last eight meetings between the two teams in all competitions have gone over 2.5 goals. It makes sense to expect another high scoring clash between the two rivals. As for picking out a winner, it is City at home with the form in Manchester derbies and they have to take some initiative in this match so as to not lose more ground on Champions-elect Chelsea. City to edge a high scoring game would probably be the way to go.

Manchester City v Manchester United Betting Odds

Man City 3/4, Draw 11/4, Man Utd 3/1

So goals are expected and online betting site Ladbrokes have a great money back special running for the game. They will refund lost stakes as a free bet on the Correct Score, Scorate and First Goalscorer markets if both teams score in the game. Great offer and new customers registering an account with Ladbrokes at the moment can get up to a free £100 bet as a welcome bonus too!

Manchester City v Manchester United Betting Preview

A passionate Manchester derby is on the cards for Sunday lunchtime and both really could use the three points. Manchester City will be looking to make amends after coming away from Upton Park last weekend without a point, while Manchester United would love the boost of their first away win of the season coming at the Etihad.

Will United be able to survive on the road? Place a bet on the win market for Man City v Man Utd betting with online bookmaker Paddy Power, and if the game ends up as a draw, then they will give your lost stake back as a free bet. This applies to the first bet on the w/d/w market only and the maximum refund is £50! Paddy Power also pay out a 20% win bonus on successful 5-fold or greater accumulator bets.

Manchester City v Manchester United Betting Tips

Louis van Gaal has so far led Manchester United to their worst ever start to a Premier League season. Yes, worse than David Moyes’s efforts last season. To put that into context, United played a team who finished in the top four of last season’s table for the first time last weekend when they faced Chelsea. They  have taken just thirteen points from their opening nine games of the season. Robin van Persie saved them at Old Trafford last weekend with an injury time strike, and he, Radamel Falcao and Wayne Rooney can all be taken around the 6/1 mark in the first goalscorer market. Wayne Rooney, who is back from suspension, is the top goalscorer in Manchester derbies having netted 11 goals, and he has scored four goals in his last five Premier League appearances at the Etihad (3 in his last two).

United have now drawn their last two matches, taking a point against West Brom and Chelsea. They have lost just one of their last eight league matches, but only won three of those eight. While United have scored in three of their four away games in the top flight this season, they are still waiting for their first away win of the new term. Having just faced Chelsea, they now go against Man City and Arsenal in two of their next three league matches, so a really testing time for them. Are they ready for the test of Manchester City? Probably not, especially on the road, and with their shaky defence, there should be value in backing both teams to score and in backing the game to go over 2.5 goals.

City head into Sunday’s derby with a four point lead over United in the league. With Chelsea at home against QPR on the weekend, it’s likely that City can’t afford a defeat here. They blew a costly three points on the road at West Ham last weekend, and after struggles in the Champions League too, they really need a response. They do have the stats on their side to suggest that they can get an important three points here. Last season in this corresponding fixture, the Citizens ran out convincing 4-1 winners and momentum is fully with them in the recent Manchester derbies. City have won five and lost just one of the last six meetings in Premier League Manchester derbies. So the price of 5/6 favourites looks decent value at online bookmaker Paddy Power.

Both Edin Dzeko and Sergio Aguero have scored four goals in five Premier League appearances against the red Devils, and it is Aguero who is 3/1 favourite in the first goalscorer market for the game, with Dzeko at 6/1. Another key component in City’s quest for three points here could be Yaya Toure who has also scored in three of his last four against the Red Devils in the Premier League. City are looking to win four league matches in a row over Manchester United for the first time since 1970. Already trailing Chelsea by six points and with just three wins in their last seven league matches, can they get an injection of confidence from a derby win?

Manchester City v Manchester United Betting Odds

Man City 3/4, Draw 11/4, Man Utd 3/1

Manchester City v Manchester United Predictions

The likelihood is that Man City won’t lose this one. They are stronger in defence and have the power and creativity going forward to keep United on the back foot. Hard to see United’s first away win of the season coming at such a tough place. It is just worth backing the Citizens to put the win on the board and get their title challenge going again.

Manchester City v Newcastle League Cup Betting Preview

Well the Citizens may be gunning harder than perhaps they would have expected to have been for a place in the quarter finals of the League Cup. After taking massive blows in their Champions League and Premier League hopes over the past week, some silverware in the form of the Capital One Cup may keep the wolves from Manuel Pellegrini’s door for a bit. But Newcastle appear to be finding their feet, so can the Magpies deliver another blow to the Citizens?

There is a big Capital One Cup coupon midweek, meaning that there is a nice chance to build a acca. Online bookmaker Paddy Power pay out a 20% win bonus on successful acca of five selections or bigger, and selections can be made from the League Cup as well as other top European competitions. Superb bonus offer and a great chance to try and pick up some extra reward. The maximum payout on the acca win bonus is £1000

Manchester City v Newcastle League Cup Betting Tips

This is still a tough fixture for Newcastle, let’s make no bones about that. The Magpies are finally showing a bit of fight, and have recorded back to back wins in the Premier League, something that they looked a long way short of doing before the international break. After a home win over Leicester, they came from behind to beat Spurs at White Hart Lane on the weekend. Newcastle have now lost just one of their last six in all competitions. But they still don’t look a great side, they managed just 33% of possession at Tottenham, and City have the ball retention to hurt Newcastle. The Magpies have won their last three away games in the League Cup, including seven of the last nine.

But the form in the head to head against Man City is all with the Citizens. Manchester City have won their last twelve matches in a row against Newcastle in all competitions. Newcastle have failed to get a win over the Citizens in their last eighteen meetings. So the Tyneside club are rightly heavy underdogs for this one, and that record stands at D2 L16 in their last 18 match ups against City. But City’s confidence will have been knocked over the last week, including their 2-1 loss at Upton Park against West Ham on the weekend. That followed them blowing a two goal lead in a Champions League match against CSKA Moscow, the game ending 2-2.

City have failed to win three of their last six in all competitions, but they took a comfortable victory against Newcastle on the opening weekend of the Premier League this season. City earned a 2-0 victory at St James’s Park, and didn’t allow a single shot on target against in the match. With Newcastle not looking a particularly prolific attacking force, the City should still be relatively comfortable in this game. The last two meetings between them at the Etihad have seen 4-0 wins record by City and Sergio Aguero is trading as 8/13 favourite in the anytime goalscorer market for the game. So probably goals in this one, and City have to bounce back sooner or later.

Manchester City v Newcastle League Cup Betting Odds

Man City 2/7, Draw 18/4, Newcastle 8/1

Manchester City v Newcastle League Cup Predictions

As well as Newcastle have done in their last two league matches, facing City on the road is a big ask for them, and they aren’t great value for the win. There’s not enough in them to suggest that they are going to cause an upset. City will be taking this a little bit more seriously after the week that they have had and it should be a home win.
