Manchester City completed a double over Chelsea last season and they’re priced at 13/5 (bet365) to secure maximum points again this weekend. However, Chelsea are a generous 6/5 (Ladbrokes) to overhaul a side that has yet to convince.
The fixture has a history of yielding goals – there have been 26 in the last eight meetings and William Hill’s even money for this duel to produce more than two appeals. In other markets, City are 4/1 (Paddy Power) to enjoy a one-goal margin of victory, with Carlos Tevez priced at 7/4 (Victor Chandler) to score at any time.
Birmingham City, who completed a double over Wigan last term, kick off as Totesports’ 5/6 favourites to take another three points this weekend. Wigan’s only win this season came away from home, but their 7/2 price (Partybets) to claim a second at St Andrews looks about right.
At Craven Cottage where Fulham start as bet365’s 8/5 favourites against struggling Everton (9/5 William Hill). Not one of the last 18 league duels involving the pair have ended in stalemate; incredibly, there have been 17 home wins during the same period.
Meanwhile Tottenham are 11/10 (Jaxx.com) to triumph at West Ham. Spurs have won seven of their last eight league matches against the Hammers, who kick off as Victor Chandler’s 13/5 outsiders. Tottenham are 11/4 (Betfred) to win when kicking off with a one goal deficit.
Bolton have managed just three goals against Manchester United in their last eight meetings, a record which adds appeal to Paddy Power’s 7/5 for Sir Alex Ferguson’s charges to win without conceding in Sunday’s noon kick off on ESPN
Elsewhere, Arsenal are Gamebookers’ 6/4 choice to beat West Brom when starting with a two goal disadvantage. Meanwhile, Blackpool and Blackburn look set for a draw (12/5, Stan James), as do Newcastle and Stoke (5/2, Betdaq). However, both Liverpool (1/2, Ladbrokes) and Wolves (15/8, William Hill) should register home wins against Aston Villa and Sunderland respectively.
