Manchester City have won their last five matches against Wigan, keeping clean sheets in all of those victories and with Roberto Mancini’s men also unbeaten this term in the Premier League, they’re worthy favourites at 4/7 via Betfred as they travel to the DW Stadium.
The fact that the Latics are missing one or two players strengthens the case for an away success and as the hosts struggle to even score past City as a rule, Skybet’s 7/4 for the visitors to prevail ‘to nil’ isn’t without appeal.
At the other end, Carlos Tevez, who is likely to regain his place in the starting line-up having featured from the bench is the best bet in the first scorer betting at 4/1 (Coral) while the striker is 11/10 with BetVictor to notch at any time.
At Stamford Bridge, Rafa Benitez is just 1/2 at William Hill to pick up his first win as Chelsea boss as the Blues host Fulham and also set for a home victory are Stoke, who are evens courtesy of Totesport to overcome off-colour and injury-hit Newcastle.
Elsewhere, Arsenal can capitalise on Everton’s dip in form, BetVictor making the Gunners a 2/1 shot to collect a crucial three points at Goodison Park and their North London neighbours Tottenham should beat Merseyside opposition too at White Hart Lane, where bet365 chalk Spurs up at 7/5 to come out on top.
