Liverpool v Manchester City Betting Preview
Here it is then frankly, Liverpool’s chance to put one hand firmly on the league title. They entertain their biggest threat to topping the league at Anfield on Sunday, as Manchester City will be hoping to close the gap on the Reds and take over favouritism themselves. Liverpool hold a four point advantage going into the game, but City still have two games in hand. Lose this, and City could be chasing shadows.

Liverpool v Manchester City Betting Tips:
Can Liverpool build on to what they have in their hands? The Reds are now running on a fourteen match unbeaten streak, and a nine match winning streak in the top flight. Hard to argue with that, and last Sunday they kept the form going with a gritty win at West Ham, courtesy of two penalty kicks from Steven Gerrard. The Reds do have some form here as they have won all four home meetings with other members of the top seven this season. In those four matches they have scored 14 and conceded just the one. Big form, but they will be looking to get some revenge for a 2-1 defeat they suffered at the Etihad against Man City on Boxing Day last year. A victory here and it is hard to see the Reds letting the title slip. Can they handle the pressure and deliver?

They of course have the in-form Luis Suarez at 6/4 in the anytime goalscorer market and Daniel Sturridge at 13/8. The only strike duo who has scored more than them two (49) in a single Premier League season is Andy Cole and Peter Beardsley back in the 1993-94 season (55). The S&S are on track to beat that. They also have Steven Gerrard of course and no player in the top flight has scored more goals from dead ball situations, and no players has provided more assists from dead ball situations than him. So it is five home wins on the trot now for Liverpool, unbeaten in their last thirteen, twelve of those having been won. They aren’t a side to be messed with at home and they have averaged 3 goals per game at Anfield. Naturally going to be worth looking over 2.5 goals for this one then at a price of 8/15. The last four meetings, and the last two at Anfield have all gone over. Usually top clashes like this are cagey, but you can see these two going hammer and tongs at each other.

The last three meetings between the two in all competitions at Anfield have ended in a draw, a result which would suit City better in the long run. Sergio Aguero has netted in five successive Premier League appearances and has netted six in his last six league away games too. Aguero is reportedly ready to return to action, and is priced at 6/4 in the anytime goalscorer market, with teammates Edin Dzeko, Alvaro Negredo and midfield powerhouse Yaya Toure at 2/1. They have the firepower and they are in good away form, having gone unbeaten in their last ten away from the Etihad, winning seven of those. Defensively, City are the more sound of the two sides and they have come back into some good goalscoring form at the right time it looks like.

This is a clash between the two highest scoring sides in the Premier League this season, so expect goals and it will be worth dipping into the Both Teams To Score market. The Citizens though haven’t enjoyed a lot of success at Anfield in the Premier League. Of their previous sixteen EPL visits there, they have only ever come away with the one win and that was back in 2003. They are good enough to avoid defeat and perhaps worth a Draw No Bet punt, but can they get rare away win on Merseyside?

If Man City’s record was better here, there may be big value in them. This can really go either way and hopefully we see an attack fest. Can see a lot of value in a Liverpool Draw No Bet for coverage at 4/6 with Paddy Power.

Paddy Power

The big game on the Premier League calendar this weekend is of course the meeting at Anfield, as Liverpool v Man City betting takes centre stage. That is the big battle for the Premier League title and a game of massive implications.

The Reds, head into the weekend at the top of the table with a four point lead over third placed Man City, and just a two point lead over Chelsea. While the Reds are in the driving seat and have won their previous four games against other top seven sides at home this season, failure to win here could open the door for the Citizens.

Man City still have those two games in hand over Brendan Rodgers’ outfit and would be favourites if they avoid defeat at Anfield. But City have only won one of their sixteen previous Premier League visits to Anfield. The away side are trading at 15/8 with Paddy Power to win the game, against the 7/5 price on Liverpool.

If Manchester City beat Liverpool on Sunday, then online betting site Paddy Power will pay out last stake refunds as free bets on the Correct Score, Scorecast, First Goalscorer and Last Goalscorer markets on the game.

Huge promotion and it could be a costly one for them if the Citizens, who are in good away form, snatch the three points. New customers registering an account with Paddy Power can get up to a free £50 bet as a welcome bonus too.

Premier League Betting

They are currently on a massive fourteen match unbeaten streak in the Premier League and having won their last nine on the bounce, Liverpool have powered their way to the top of the table. Brendan Rodgers has taken them to the brink of an unexpected title and there are just five matches left of the season for them to see off.

After a victory over West Ham on the weekend, thanks to a brace of converted penalty kicks from Steven Gerrard, Liverpool are at the summit of the Premier League, two points clear of Chelsea. So as long as the Anfield Reds keep winning their matches they are going to hold off the challenge of Mourinho’s men.

But the bigger threat to them getting their hands on the table is of course Manchester City who are just four points back and with two games in hand over them. The threat from the Citizens as well is that actually have a better goal difference than the high-scoring Reds, so a tie at the end of the day and it is advantage City.

Online betting site Ladbrokes are offering a tempting price of 9/1 that Liverpool will win all of their remaining games this season. The current form that they are in, you wouldn’t put it past them. However, two of those five are going to massive in determining the outcome of the league title.

They have to host Manchester City on April 13th and then welcome Chelsea to Anfield on April 27th. Those are the big crunch games. So their destiny is in their own hands. Win those two big home games and the title should be winging its way to Liverpool. The other remaining games for the Reds are away to Norwich and Crystal Palace, before finishing up their season on home turf against Newcastle.

Liverpool lost 2-1 at both Man City and Chelsea earlier in the season, losing at the Etihad on Boxing Day and then at Stamford Bridge just three days later. That loss at Chelsea on December 29th, was the last time they lost and since then have taken 38 points from a possible 42 available, twelve wins and two draws from the fourteen games.

What may make the price of 9/1 so tempting is that Liverpool have won twelve of their last thirteen matches at Anfield and are priced up at 13/10 favourites to win their clash with Man City on the weekend. With the big games to come though, punters may see more value in the price of 13/8 for Liverpool to go unbeaten for the rest of the season.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “While the title race remains in Liverpool’s hands the betting suggests City will spoil the party. The market expects City to get at least a point at Anfield however a loss would concede title favouritism to their opponents.”

Manchester United v Manchester City Betting Preview
This isn’t the big title clash which many thought that it could be at this stage of the season. The Red Devils aren’t likely to even finish in the top four at this rate and start the Manchester derby a massive twelve points behind third placed City as it is. City though do have big title ambitions and will be looking for an important three points at Old Trafford.

Manchester United v Manchester City Betting Tips:
Back on September 22nd, the Citizens produced a tremendous display at the Etihad in thumping the Red Devils 4-1, including a brace from Sergio Aguero. Aguero misses this one through injury. The Citizens have pressure on them as they are trying to make the most of their games in hand over leaders Chelsea in title race. After a little stumble, Manuel Pellegrini’s men have gotten themselves back on course, winning their last three games on the bounce, and Yaya Toure weighed in with a hat trick on the weekend as they crushed Fulham 5-0 at the Etihad. City have big Anytime Goalscorer options in Edin Dzeko and Alvaro Negredo at 13/8 with Toure at 15/8 in the absence of Sergio Aguero.

City have suffered defeats in four away matches this season, winning seven and drawing three. Their form of the road though has improved dramatically though over the second half of the season. They have scored at an average of two goals per game and have shipped at a rate of 1.3 per game on the road. This will probably go over 2.5 goals again. This is an important run of games for them, as they face Arsenal and Liverpool in two of the three games following this one. A defining run of games in their title ambitions. City have kept four clean sheets in a row now in the top flight. They are also in a good run of form against Manchester United having won four and lost one of the last five league meetings against their rivals.

United have had a decent week, in winning through in the Champions League and then taking a 2-0 win away at West Ham, including a wonder goal by Wayne Rooney. Rooney has netted five in his last five games in all competitions against City and is priced up at 7/4 in the anytime goalscorer market. The Red Devils have lost as many Premier League home games this season as they have in the previous three seasons put together. They are without a win in their last two at Old Trafford, a draw against Fulham and a 3-0 defeat by Liverpool. United have lost all four north west derbies in the Premier League this season. Not totally convincing and they are missing Robin van Persie and have lost the last two at home against City.

City’s away form is good, having lost none of their last eight away games in the top flight and they have kept clean sheets in three of their last four on the road. That should be good enough for a point and while pride is a factor, City just have so much more to play for and are a decent price to back for an outright win.

The Citizens have an uphill task ahead of them after losing the first leg at home 2-0 to the mighty Catalans.

Man City v Barcelona Betting Tips:
Results for both of these clubs have started to go awry a bit lately. Man City suffered a huge home shock on the weekend against Wigan in the FA Cup, their third defeat in their last seven games in all competitions. Just three of those seven games have been won by Manuel Pellegrini’s men, so problems are starting to arise. They lost 2-0 against Barcelona in the first leg, a sending off for Demichelis in an incident where he gave away a penalty, really was the orchestration of their own downfall. They had still been chasing the game a little bit, but Barcelona just stepped up through the gears once Lionel Messi had converted the spot kick. Now they need something special and Sergio Aguero will have to lead from the front and he is 2/1 in the anytime goalscorer market, with Alvaro Negredo at 3/1.

Still, they’ll have some hope. They fought back from a 2-0 deficit away at Bayern Munich in their last away game in Europe to remarkably take a 3-2 win. However, history isn’t on their side as only on two occasions before in the history of the Champions League has a side overturned a first leg home defeat to go through (Ajax and Inter Milan). City have never been to the Nou Camp for a competitive game and they only have a small history in Spain. Their record in Spain is W1 D1 L3 and the last time they were there was in last season’s Champions League, blowing a 2-1 lead in the final three minutes at Real Madrid to lose 3-2. You would imagine that there are going to be goals in this one, and over 2.5 for Man City v Barcelona betting is priced up at 1/2 with Bet365.

Barcelona have slipped to two defeats in their last three games, but those defeats were on the road in La Liga. They were the most prolific home side in this season’s group stage of the Champions League, netting thirteen goals in their three games. At home, the Blaugrana have only lost one of their last 25 European matches, winning 19 of those. Their home record against English sides is W15 D11 L2 and the last time they went up against an English side in the knockout stage, they did lose out to Chelsea in the 2011/12 semi finals. Impressively Barcelona have progressed 32 out of the 34 times that they have won the away first leg in UEFA competition, so they look a solid bet to get through. Lionel Messi is 1/2 favourite in the anytime goalscorer market.

Things aren’t clicking for Man City, not as well as they should be at the moment. Although they beat Bayern Munich in their last away game, it is unlikely that they are going to get enough of the ball to really threaten Barcelona too much in this one. Would shoot for a straight home win at 1/2 on the Catalans.

Wembley Stadion

Manchester City moved into a comfortable 10/11  favoritism to win the FA Cup this season after knocking out Chelsea in the fifth round. It was a game of comfortable revenge for Man City, who superbly adjusted tactically to negate all the threats that Chelsea had posed them in the recent Premier League meeting at the Etihad, a game which Chelsea won 1-0.

But Chelsea failed to post a single shot on target during their FA Cup clash on Saturday, thanks to how well City were set up. The Citizens just dominated the game from start to finish, with Stevan Jovetic opening the scoring on 16 minutes,and Samir Nasri putting the game beyond down in the 67th with City’s second.

Man City will now host reining champions Wigan, a rematch of last year’s final, which the Latics won in dramatic fashion at Wembley. The Championship side scored a 2-1 win over Cardiff in the Welsh capital on Saturday, with bookmakers cutting the FA Cup holders from 100/1 to 66/1 to stage a successful title defence.

Sunderland’s great cup season continues, after they booked passage to the sixth round with a 1-0 home win over Southampton. A superb goal from Craig Gardner gave them the victory and it keeps Gus Poyet’s men on track for a potential Cup double, as they will meet Man City in the final of the League Cup in March.

Sunderland are priced at 16/1 for the FA Cup and 9/2 for the Capital One Cup, but of course are still concerned about the threat of relegation from the Premier League. The Black Cats will face a trip to Brighton or Hull in the quarter finals.

The potential of a Merseyside derby was thwarted by Arsenal on Sunday, as the Gunners took a 2-1 home win over Liverpool in a thrilling, open encounter in North London. Goals by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Lukas Podolski sealed the deal for the Gunners who now stay at home for the quarter finals, taking on Everton, who cruised past Swansea 3-1 at Goodison Park.

There could be a big Sheffield derby on the card though, as Sheffield United v Sheffield Wednesday or Charlton is still to be decided, the original tie being postponed because of adverse weather

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.

Aguero (Manchester City)

The 2014 Capital One Cup Final will see Man city v Sunderland betting take centre stage in the first domestic final of the new season. The two clubs will head to Wembley after taking contrasting paths in their respective semi finals. Naturally, Manuel Pellegrini’s men are already being priced up as strong favourites to lift the trophy, in as short as 1/3 with online betting site Ladbrokes.

Man City v Sunderland 2014 Capital One Cup Final Betting Odds at online betting site Ladbrokes
Man City 1/3, Draw 4/1, Sunderland 9/1

City cruised through to Wembley after hammering a poor West Ham side 9-0 on aggregate over the two legs. Punters will be looking at Capital One Cup final betting and be reasoning that the likely deciding factor in it will be the immense firepower that City can call upon. Alvaro Negredo and Edin Dzeko are the competition’s top scorers this season, both having netted six each through the competition. Throw Sergio Aguero in the mix and you have a powerful line up of options and all of them will be dominating the goalscoring markets for the match.

Man City have struggled against the Black Cats recently, having lost back to back games in the Premier League against Sunderland. Still, when they get to Wembley and a quick playing big pitch, there should be plenty of space around for the Citizens to exploit. Naturally you think of goals whenever and wherever City are playing and the game is going to be backed to go over 2.5 goals at a price of 4/7 with Ladbrokes.

But given their run to the final, Sunderland will have their backers to cause an upset. They dramatically edged past Chelsea in the quarter finals at stamford Bridge and then followed that up with an even more dramatic finale to their semi final encounter against Manchester United. Holding a 2-1 advantage from the home leg, Gus Poyet’s men did themselves proud and didn’t look overawed by the occasion, taking the game to the Red Devils at Old Trafford. They got their just rewards, edging a comical penalty shoot out.

With both sides scoring deep into extra time, the game stood at 3-3 on aggregate, sending the tie to a shoot out. Just three of the ten spot kicks were converted, Sunderland taking a 2-1 shootout victory to reach Wembley. It will be their first appearance in the League Cup final since back in 1985. Credit to the Sunderland support as they took 9,000 fans to Old Trafford, the biggest way support in English domestic competitions this season.

So Sunderland, who have scored 1-0 victories over the Citizens in the last two meetings, may be struggling against relegation in the top flight, but are the cup gods with them this term? Manchester City have only taken one win in the last five meetings between the clubs. The two will face off against each other at the Etihad in the Premier League on February 12th ahead of Capital One Cup Final betting.

West Ham v Man City Betting Preview
There is a place at Wembley at stake in this one, but not really as far as West Ham are concerned. City crushed the Hammers in the first leg 6-0 which means that this is something of a dead rubber. It is highly unlikely that West Ham are going to come out and scored seven unanswered goals to win. Man City are just humming along on all fronts, leaving the Hammers just as heavy underdogs to record any kind of win at Upton Park in this Capital One Cup semi final second leg.

West Ham v Man City Betting Tips:
Tough position for West Ham boss Sam Allardyce to be in. Another defeat in the Premier League on the weekend has left them in the bottom three, and after losing so heavily in the first leg there’s little to chase here. But if he doesn’t go for it, then he could come under more pressure. That’s the last thing he needs. But really this is a game which everyone knows that he could sacrifice, even though the Hammers get a break after this because they don’t play next weekend in the FA Cup. Allardyce sent out that youth team against Notts Forest in the third round and they got battered by the Championship side.

In just 90 minutes, all of their good work in the Capital One Cup this season, including their quarter final win over Tottenham, came undone in Manchester a couple of weeks ago. Tough to see them getting close to overturning it and the bookmakers aren’t expecting them to get a win. So it is hard to find value in the Hammers for this one. Maybe a shot at Both teams To Score could offer some value at 4/6 with Betfair. But even then West Ham have scored just the two goals in their last four played against Man City in all competitions. It is hard to look at anyone with confidence in the goalscorer markets for them too. West Ham are winless in their last four at home against the Citizens as well. Man City have big goals in them, from Negredo to Aguero to Dzeko and more. Manuel Pellegrini’s men took a 4-2 home win over Cardiff in the Premier League on the weekend, and just look as if they are going boldly for everything.

In their last three matches against the Hammers, City have scored eleven goals now, with Sergio Aguero netting three in City’s last three games against the Londoners. Still, there’s probably some great value in Edin Dzeko who is priced up at 10/11 in the anytime goalscorer market. He scored a brace in the first leg and is top scorer in this season’s Capital One Cup. They have one massive foot in the door of Wembley here and this match could be worth looking at to go over 2.5 goals. If West Ham are under strength, City should win easily, if City are at less than full strength while West Ham go for it, there should be goals. The Hammers haven’t won any of their last four played at Upton Park and City are expected to rack up that aggregate score.

Tough to really make a call over just how this one is going to go, because it is a dead rubber. So worth that look instead at Edin Dzeko at 10/11 with Betfair in the anytime goalscorer market.
