The Premier League season’s end is nearly in sight but there are plenty of tasty fixtures to get your teeth into between now and then.
The title race is still very much on while, at the other end of the table, there is one more relegation spot yet to be confirmed, with Cardiff still in with a chance of Premier League survival after their 2-0 win over relegation rivals Brighton.
This weekend heralds some great match-ups to capitalise upon as our football betting expert casts an eye over the best of the action.
Manchester City v Tottenham
Manchester City and Liverpool appear to be taking the title race right down to the wire, leaving Pep Guardiola’s side no alternative but to take all three points against Spurs.
The visitors have proved dangerous despite their current injury woes, but are as long as 15/2 to win the game, while it’s hard to look past City especially when they are at home and there is a trophy at stake.
It is going to be a hard-fought 90 minutes on the pitch but ultimately expect the home side to be the more clinical of the two in front of goal, with Sergio Aguero also leading the race for the Golden Boot going into the weekend.
Back a 3-1 full-time score-line at 9/1 with grosvenorsport.com.
Everton v Manchester United
While mid-table Everton don’t really have anything left to play for, Goodison Park is a notoriously tough place to go, with the Toffees seeing off Arsenal when last hosting in the league.
They will be similarly fired up to welcome a Manchester United side who could well have one eye on the Manchester derby which takes place just three days later.
There isn’t a lot to split these sides on paper at the moment and it’s easy to see the score-line reflect that. I’m backing the draw at 5/2 with grosvenorsport.com, with a decent 11/2 chance for both teams to score.
Cardiff v Liverpool
Liverpool haven’t dropped points in the league since their stalemate at Everton at the start of March and it seems there is just no stopping them, with the title race between them and Manchester City not letting up.
Mohamed Salah will be high on confidence after scoring one of the goals of the season in a win against Chelsea last time out and he’s 11/4 to grab the first goal here.
The Bluebirds haven’t been relegated yet but are hanging on by the skin of their teeth, and it’s likely Liverpool will deliver a performance which could prove crucial in the fate of both these teams’ campaigns.
I expect Liverpool to keep their title hopes alive in Wales with a 2-0 win that can be backed at 5/1.
