Manchester City will be hoping to take advantage of Chelsea’s Capital One Cup distraction by cutting the gap at the table’s summit to just two with a success at Liverpool. The champions are 7/5 with BetVictor to claim a maximum haul but the in-form Reds are right in the mix now in the race for fourth following their triumph at Southampton and despite their Europa League loss on Thursday they look overpriced at 11/5 (Betfred) to dent City’s title hopes.
Bet365’s 5/2 about it ending all square at Anfield will have its backers but a better option for punters acknowledging the possibility of an inconclusive clash is Skybet’s 6/5 chalked against the hosts in the ‘Draw No Bet’ market.
At the Emirates Stadium, Arsenal are a safe-looking 4/7 via Paddy Power to overcome an Everton side whose performances in the league are failing to live up to their form in Europe, Stan James price Manchester United at 2/5 to also pick up a home win, at the expense of Sunderland and William Hill go 19/20 about Stoke seeing off Hull. That trio meanwhile combine in a treble at 13/4 courtesy of bet365.
Elsewhere, BetVictor quote a hefty-looking 13/5 about West Brom overhauling Southampton, Stan James price Burnley and Swansea at 12/5 to be inseparable and Newcastle finally, are 19/20 (William Hill) to defeat beleaguered Aston Villa.
