Live on Skysports 1: Mon 20.00: Boylesports offer 5/2 for the Manchester derby, pivotal in the Premier League title race, to finish all square.

After 82 minutes at Old Trafford last Sunday, Manchester United had seemingly tightened their grip on a 20th league title having racked up what looked like an unassailable 4-2 advantage over Everton.

However, just as it looked like they would stretch their lead at the Premier League summit to a probably insurmountable eight points, Sir Alex Ferguson’s side switched off, the Toffees capitalised impressively to nick a point and second-placed Manchester City overcame Wolves shortly afterwards to put the tussle at the top right back in the balance.

The mouth-watering Manchester derby at the Etihad Stadium can subsequently almost be called a decider although United’s three-point lead over City in the table means the Red Devils remain odds-on, at 1/2 with Coral, to clinch top spot while bet365 price Roberto Mancini’s men at 7/4 to wrest the crown from their rivals.

For the latter to be a realistic outcome, the hosts need to defeat Ferguson’s champions, a result that would see them move into the lead on goal difference and Paddy Power make them 5/4 to do just that. United meanwhile, are 5/2 via BetVictor to effectively seal the title with a victory and at 5/2, this time courtesy of Boylesports, is the stalemate, a better result for the visitors than City.

Mancini’s troops have won 16 of their 17 home fixtures, drawing the other, so a defeat for them seems unlikely but the leaders have a knack of grinding out results when it matters and they can snatch a crucial point here, in a match Coral price at 13/2 to finish one-each.

Always a man for the big occasion, Wayne Rooney has struck four times in his last five competitive appearances against City and he’ll attract first scorer cash at 7/1 via William Hill. At the other end meanwhile, Sergio Aguero is a 7/1 chance at Ladbrokes to bag the opener having found the net on both of the occasions he has faced United but the script could be written for Carlos Tevez, another 7/1 shot, this time at Stan James, who is back in favour and back amongst the goals.

Recommended Bets:
Man City and Man Utd to draw – 5/2 (Boylesports)
Carlos Tevez to score first – 7/1 (Stan James)
