Watford v Manchester City Betting Tips: Manchester City to come out on top in goalfest

These two have made excellent starts to their respective seasons with Manchester City sitting in second whilst Watford are fourth. Watford are one of only three teams yet to suffer a Premier League defeat and this will give them huge confidence going into their match against title hopefuls Manchester City. The Hornets have been particularly good at the back recently with three clean sheets in their last three top flight matches. The three league goals they have conceded so far this campaign all came in their opening day draw with Liverpool. In terms of the final third, compared to the…

Manchester City v Liverpool Betting Tips: Both teams to have chances at the Etihad

This weekend’s opening Premier League fixture sees a battle between two potential title rivals as Manchester City host Liverpool. Manchester City recorded an incredibly dramatic win last time out against Bournemouth as Raheem Sterling scored in the 97th minute to secure a 2-1 victory – Sterling’s subsequent red card means he will miss this match. City are currently going along nicely in fourth place in the Premier League. Despite possessing an abundance of attacking riches, it is interesting to note that Pep Guardiola’s side have only found the back of the net five times in their three outings so far.…

AFC Bournemouth v Manchester City Betting Tips: Away side to blitz the opposition

This Premier League match should be an exciting affair as two of the division’s more attacking sides come head-to-head. Bournemouth have had a poor start to their Premier League season and are yet to pick up a single point in their first two outings. However, they managed to bring some confidence back to the side in midweek as they beat Birmingham City in the League Cup. Although the Cherries are generally known for their attacking mentality, they are still yet to score a Premier League goal this season. It will be interesting to see if manager Eddie Howe brings in…

Watford v Manchester City Betting Tips: Goals likely at Vicarage Road

The final game of the season for both Watford and Manchester City carries little significance; Watford are safe and sound for another year at least, while Man City have secured themselves a top four spot, although you’d expect that they’d rather finish 3rd than 4th – something that can be achieved with a win here. Guardiola hasn’t exactly conquered the English game in his first season at City, but 3rd would still represent a decent campaign and is certainly something to build on. From a forward perspective, City have naturally been one of the best teams in the division, although…

Manchester City v West Bromwich Albion Betting Tips: Citizens to move up with a win

Only one of these teams here really has something left to play for as Manchester City are still looking to confirm their place in the top four whilst West Bromwich Albion have done magnificently to reach 8th so far this season. Manchester City recorded a 2-1 victory over Leicester City at the weekend, albeit luckily with Riyad Mahrez’s disallowed penalty, to keep themselves in 3rd (hope you followed my tip on that match!) whilst also maintaining the three-point gap between themselves and Arsenal down in 5th. City’s performance in the first half on Saturday was a decent summary of what…

Manchester City v Leicester City Betting Tips: Guardiola’s men to get the better of Foxes in high-scoring fashion

This match was of course a title clash last year, however, neither of these sides are going to win the league this time around and, whilst Manchester City are looking to cement a top four finish, Leicester are simply looking to stay in the top ten. Manchester City ended their two-match Premier League win-less run with an emphatic 5-0 victory against Crystal Palace last time out which puts them inside the top four with a three-point cushion and a superior goal difference to Arsenal down in 5th. The Citizens’ focus this season has certainly been in the final third of…

Middlesbrough v Manchester City Betting Tips: City to regain the winning thread

These two sides are at opposite ends of the table with Middlesbrough simply looking to survive in the division whilst Manchester City are looking to consolidate their place in the top four. Middlesbrough managed to claim a precious three points by securing victory over bottom of the table Sunderland in midweek. This was their first league win of 2017 and they still look unlikely to get out of trouble with six points the difference between them and safety. Goals have been incredibly hard to come by for Boro this season and they are the league’s lowest scorers with just 24…

Man City v Man United Betting Tips: Lack of goals at the Etihad

This Manchester derby not only has local pride riding on it but also a place in the top four and that holy grail of a Champions League spot. Manchester City suffered a shock loss in the FA Cup semi-final at the weekend as they lost 2-1 to Arsenal. This means that, barring an absolute miracle which sees them win the Premier League, Pep Guardiola will not win a trophy in his first season as Manchester City manager. Guardiola, as we know, is a coach who is very much focused on the attacking side of the game, as proven by the…

Arsenal v Manchester City Betting Tips: City to thrive at Wembley

Sunday’s FA Cup tie should be a very exciting affair as two of English football’s attacking powerhouses come head-to-head. This competition represents the only chance for either of these sides to win silverware this season so we can expect strong line-ups. Arsenal have had a miserable season in the Premier League and currently sit down in 6th and seven points off the top four. However, the FA Cup has been a bit of a saving grace and it is even rumoured that Arsene Wenger’s decision of whether to stay or go could hinge on the tournament. As alluded to earlier,…

Arsenal v Manchester City Betting Tips: Goals to arrive after half-time at the Emirates

Neither of these teams have a realistic shot at the Premier League title this season but will both be hoping to finish in the top four. Arsenal are on a terrible run at the moment and are arguably having their worst spell during Arsene Wenger’s 20 or so years in charge of the club. They are currently 6th and six points off the top four after a run of four losses in their last five Premier League games. However, they do have two games in hand over Liverpool in 4th so could claw back if they find some form. Everybody…

Manchester City’s unbeaten run of 11 came to a crashing halt on Tuesday night, and with it their hopes of winning the Champions League, as they lost 3-1 to French Ligue 1 leaders Monaco. City are still in the FA Cup but for now can focus on the Premier League and finishing in the Champions League places – they are currently third and six points ahead of 5th. The midweek defeat to Monaco once again demonstrated how Pep Guardiola’s team cannot defend against the big teams – as we have seen throughout much of the season. This is a real…

The first leg of this Champions League tie was one of the most entertaining games in the history of the European Cup as it finished 5-3 to Manchester City. Fans at the Stade Louis II will be hoping for more of the same in this second-leg. Monaco have won each of their four matches since that loss to City and are three points clear at the top of Ligue 1. Leonardo Jardim’s side are one of the most attack-minded teams around and have scored an incredible 84 goals in their 29 league matches so far this campaign. Furthermore, they have found…

Man City may still be eight points off top spot (at time of writing) but they have been on a fantastic run recently and are now nine matches unbeaten, winning seven of their last eight. They are five points clear of the dreaded 5th place and so Champions League football now almost looks a certainty for next season. Everybody knows that Pep Guardiola’s side are sensational going forward and it is no surprise that they have scored 12 goals in their last three matches in all competitions. There are still a few question marks over the defence but it is…

This match is between two totally contrasting Premier League sides as Champions League chasers Manchester City travel to relegation-threatened Sunderland. After beating fellow relegation rivals Crystal Palace 4-0 a few weeks ago, it looked like Sunderland could have a revival and pull themselves towards safety. However, they failed to obtain any points from the next two matches and still find themselves bottom of the table and three points from safety. David Moyes’ men have been dire in both boxes this season. Firstly they have scored just 24 goals in 26 league matches. 14 of these have come through Jermain Defoe…

Wednesday night’s FA Cup replay sees Champions League chasers Manchester City host Championship promotion hopefuls Huddersfield Town following a 0-0 draw at the John Smith’s Stadium just over a week ago. After their goalless affair at Huddersfield, Man City were involved in one of the most thrilling Champions League matches of all time as they managed to record a 5-3 victory over Monaco in the first knockout round of the competition. This performance against the French side epitomised Pep Guardiola’s side this season as they attacked with real flair and potency but failed to defend in any sort of organised…

Two of the competitions more attack-minded sides come together in a match that, with the forward-talent on show, should be an exciting one for the neutral. Scoring plenty of goals is commonplace for these two teams and there’s no reason why this cannot continue to be the case when they face each other. It’s fair to say that both City and Monaco boast a number of exceptionally gifted forward-minded players and this is likely to be a tie where both defences are kept particularly busy. From a betting point of view, goals appear to be a good focal point for…

This FA Cup match sees two teams who are towards the top of their respective leagues – and so perhaps have other priorities – go head-to-head as Huddersfield Town host Manchester City at the John Smith’s Stadium. Huddersfield look like that one team you always see in the Championship that make a late break for promotion and are currently on a fantastic run having won their last five league matches. This places the Terriers in 3rd, just four points off the automatic promotion spots and ten points ahead of 7th. Manager David Wagner has brought a new philosophy to Huddersfield…

The previous meeting between these two at the London Stadium ending in a 5-0 thrashing by Manchester City in the FA Cup third round. However, this match is unlikely to see a repeat of that and the hosts are fancied to get a bit more competitive this time around. So the days of Dmitri Payet at West Ham United are now gone after the midfielder brokered a move to Olympique Marseille following his exile from the West Ham first team. Manager Slaven Bilic declared that Payet no longer wanted to play for the club on 12th January which proved to…

This match is certainly the secondary clash between Merseyside and Manchester compared this Sunday; however, these are two good sides who should put on a decent show. Despite losing their last match in the FA Cup against league champions Leicester City, Everton have actually been on a good run in the Premier League having won two of their last three and not losing any of that trio of games, boosting them up to 7th in the table.

The first FA Cup Third Round tie is an all-Premier League affair as West Ham host Manchester City on Friday night. A couple of weeks ago it had looked like West Ham had been relieved of their woes as they recorded three Premier League victories on the bounce – two of them to nil. However, recent losses against Leicester City and Manchester United sees them stagnating down in 13th. As mentioned above, two of The Hammers’ three recent victories were to nil scorelines and so it looked like the defence, which was so shocking earlier in the campaign, had been…

The most tantalising of Sunday’s fixtures is the top-of-the-table clash between title contenders Manchester City and Arsenal. After a fantastic start to the season which saw them shoot to the top of the table, City have struggled since early October, meaning they currently sit in fourth, seven points off top-spot. After recording successive victories against strugglers Crystal Palace and Burnley, Pep Guardiola’s side lost two on the bounce which caused yet another setback. However, the midweek 2-0 victory over Watford provided a bit of a respite for The Citizens. With such an incredible front-line, even though Aguero is currently suspended,…

Matches involving either of these sides tend to involve goals so we should be in for a cracker on Wednesday. Manchester City have been on a poor run in the Premier League in the last couple of weeks with two consecutive losses whilst they could only manage a draw against Celtic in a Champions League match sandwiched between those defeats. This of course means that Pep Guardiola’s side have slipped down to fourth place in the league and are currently a huge seven points off top spot. If they want to rekindle their title ambitions, they need to fix things…

The Premier League weekend kicks-off with a mouth-watering title clash between Manchester City and Chelsea. City have been on a rather inconsistent run in recent weeks and have failed to notch consecutive wins since the end of October/beginning of November. After such an impressive start to the season it now seems that quite a few teams have started to work Pep Guardiola’s team out and know exactly how to set up against them. Fortunately for City, they have found a way of winning matches without blitzing teams – which is what they were doing at the start of the season.…

Despite a high number of draws in recent weeks, Pep Guardiola’s side still sit third in the table – just one point off top spot.

Two sides with vastly different aims go head-to-head at the Etihad on Saturday as Manchester City looking for success in both England and Europe take on Middlesbrough who are simply looking to avoid relegation. We have suddenly seen an improvement from Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in the last week or so. In the weeks beforehand they had not won in six attempts in all competitions, but they put that abysmal run to bed by thrashing West Bromwich Albion 4-0 at the weekend to keep themselves top of the Premier League. However, it was the result that followed that which was…

The much anticipated second group game between these two is almost upon us and fans/punters should be in for an exciting watch. Many people will probably expect a bit more from the hosts and will also feel that things won’t go so wrong this time around. In truth, they probably won’t and the home team are expected to acquit themselves better; however, from a betting point of view, it’s definitely worth siding with Barcelona, at least in some capacity.

So another Manchester derby is upon us. Nowadays unfortunately this match is seemingly all about two foreign managers rather than the pride at stake for thousands of local Mancunians. If you are sick to death of hearing about either Mourinho or Guardiola (I know I am), I would advise you to ignore all media outlets (apart from Bookmaker Ratings of course!) for the next three days, otherwise you may drown due to the stream of discussion that will no doubt take place. With it being a local derby you would expect both managers to pick strong sides. However, there seems…
