Leaders Manchester United are 4/9 via Ladbrokes to retain top spot by seeing off Norwich at Carrow Road and William Hill offer 17/20 about Sir Alex Ferguson’s men prevailing in a fixture that generates at least three goals.
It’s 8/11 via Betfred for both teams to find the net while some might fancy bet365′s 12/5 for the hosts to take the lead but we’re taking more of a gamble and plumping for a 3-1 United success at 21/2 (BetVictor).
Champions Manchester City, the only top-flight team still unbeaten, can also emerge victorious; they’re a 2/9 chance with BetVictor to overcome Aston Villa at the Etihad Stadium, where Edin Dzeko could shrug off his ‘super sub’ tag by starting and Skybet make the City striker 4/1 to break the deadlock.
Given that they led, Chelsea will consider the draw against Liverpool to be two points dropped and the Blues are set to falter again as they head to surprise package West Brom. Bet365 have installed Roberto Di Matteo’s men as 19/20 favourites to get the better of his old club but Chelsea’s former coach Steve Clarke can guide his Baggies side to a draw, at 11/4 (Stan James).
High-flying Everton are starting to look like genuine contenders for a Champions League place and BetVictor mark 17/20 against the Toffees ahead of their trip to Reading. Liverpool, at 4/9 via Betfred, can also collect three points as they entertain Wigan and QPR have a great chance to bag their first win, although bet365’s market leading 10/11 for them to conquer fellow strugglers Southampton could be a touch skinny for some.
Completing the weekend’s programme, Skybet price Swansea at 13/5 to hold Newcastle to a draw at St James’ Park, Paddy Power make Fulham 3/4 to defeat Sunderland on Sunday and West Ham are 11/10 courtesy of Stan James to edge out Stoke on Monday.
