Still finding the going tough despite a change of management, struggling Sunderland lost 1-0 at Hull last weekend and as they prepare to entertain title-chasing Manchester City, it’s hard not to fear for Gus Poyet’s side, who are 2/5 courtesy of Stan James to suffer a fifth home reverse in six attempts at the Stadium of Light.
Manuel Pellegrini’s team fired seven past Norwich last weekend and although this one is likely to be a little closer, City still catch the eye at evens in bet365’s handicaps, when starting a goal in arrears. Alternatively, betway chalk the visitors up at 8/5 to win ‘to nil’.
More specifically, the visitors are a 7/1 shot at BetVictor to notch twice without reply but it’s in attack for the favourites that the real value lies. Sergio Aguero, handed the player of the month award for October, has helped himself to an impressive nine goals in his last six games across all competitions and he’s a generous 7/2 (Paddy Power) to break the deadlock here.
Sergio Aguero to score first – 7/2 (Paddy Power)
