United 31/10 to tighten title grip

Live on Skysports 1: Mon 20.00: Man Utd (13/10, bet365) can edge the derby clash with Man City at the Premier League’s summit.

Manchester United can’t mathematically win the Premier League title against current holders Manchester City at Old Trafford tomorrow but victory will see them open up an almost insurmountable 18-point lead with only 21 points left to play for.

Remarkably, Sir Alex Ferguson’s champions-elect have won 14 of their 15 matches on their own patch and desperate to respond following their muted performance in the FA Cup quarter final defeat to Chelsea on Monday, it’s perhaps not surprising that bet365 have installed United as 13/10 favourites to improve on their already-impressive record at home.

City are 5/2 with Coral to triumph – the only result that is of any use to them at this stage – while it’s 5/2 via Stan James for the spoils to be shared but Roberto Mancini’s charges were dismal in their last away fixture at Everton and although they bounced back against Newcastle, it’s the hosts, keen to get the title wrapped up quickly, that hold all the aces.

Nevertheless, with the exception of last year’s freak 6-1 City success in the corresponding fixture, recent meetings have all been close with five out of six being settled by the odd goal. A United win by one appeals then at 31/10 (Ladbrokes), as does BetVictor’s 9/1 marked against a 2-1 scoreline in favour of the league leaders.

Wayne Rooney meanwhile, has an excellent record against City and as Robin van Persie is just struggling a touch of late it’s the England man at 6/1 via Paddy Power that stands out in the first scorer betting.

Recommended Bets:
Wayne Rooney to score first – 6/1 (Paddy Power)
Man Utd to beat Man City by one – 31/10 (Ladbrokes)
