Manchester City continue to grind out results without really convincing and they can do so again as they go to West Ham in Saturday’s evening kick off, bet365 pricing the champions at 4/6 to edge out Sam Allardyce’s troops and Stan James rating them at 11/4 to sneak it by a one-goal margin.
Chelsea too can card a narrow success, they’re 4/5 at Paddy Power to ensure they end the weekend on top of the Premier League by getting the better of Swansea at the Liberty Stadium, where they’re 15/2 (Skybet) to fire the only goal.
BetVictor saw enough in last weekend’s controversial Merseyside derby to install Liverpool as slender 11/20 favourites as they host Newcastle but although Alan Pardew’s men haven’t exactly impressed of late, only Manchester United and Chelsea have beaten them in any competition this term and the Magpies therefore look a decent bet at 3/1 with bet365 to snatch a point at Anfield.
Also set to share the spoils are the Reds’ rivals Everton, who Stan James chalk up at 12/5 to record a fourth consecutive stalemate as they head to Craven Cottage to face a strong Fulham side while the draw (12/5, bet365) looks the best bet as Norwich host Stoke.
A quartet of likely home wins complete this weekend’s coupon; rock-bottom QPR are 5/6 with Ladbrokes to end their winless streak by extending Reading’s at Loftus Road, William Hill deem Tottenham a banker at 4/9 to see off Wigan and shot-shy Sunderland are evens at Skybet to overcome Aston Villa. Finally, on Monday, BetVictor post a safe-looking 3/4 against West Brom as they entertain struggling Southampton.
Man City and Chelsea double – 21/10 (BetVictor)
