Premier League Round 10 Preview: Liverpool And Manchester City Still Neck And Neck

Premier League Round 10 Preview: Liverpool And Manchester City Still Neck And Neck

The Reds host Cardiff this weekend while City travel to Tottenham, and Manchester United welcome Everton

The 10th round of action in the FA Premier League is set to kick off this coming weekend with Liverpool and current champions Manchester City still tied on points at the top of the table. Liverpool welcome Cardiff City to Anfield and Manchester City face a tricky trip to take on Tottenham, while Manchester United will look to bounce back from Champions League disappointment when Everton pay them a visit.

Where should I be investing my money?

First up, Liverpool welcome a Cardiff City side buoyed by their first victory last time out. The Reds however are in rampant form and sit second in the table, behind Manchester City on goal difference only.

Liverpool remain unbeaten this season and have kept clean sheets in their last two games. Cardiff, by way of comparison, have just one win to their name so far this season and are not expected to cause their opponents too many problems on Saturday afternoon (27 October).

And it is Liverpool who come in as the red hot favourites to take all three points with ease. You can back the home side to pick up the win at just 1.10, while Cardiff are out at 21.00 to make it two league wins in a row – a draw is priced in the middle at 9.00, according to Oddsshark.

A 4-0 win for Liverpool is priced at 8.50, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$42.50 pay out. In-form Daniel Sturridge is at just 1.44 to get on the score sheet, while you can back the England international to score either the first or the last goal of the game.

United look to get back to winning ways against Everton

On the Sunday afternoon, Manchester United welcome Everton to Old Trafford looking for their first win in three outings. The Red Devils lost to Juventus in the UEFA Champions League in midweek and conceded a late equaliser at Chelsea in their last league game, leaving the side 10th in the table and a massive nine points off the top.

After a slow start, Everton have won three league games in a row and have climbed to eighth in the standings. Marco Silva’s side can come into this game brimming with confidence and we like their chances of taking something from Old Trafford.

Nevertheless, it is United who come in as the clear favourites to get back to winning ways. You can back Mourinho’s men to wrap up victory at just 1.65, with the Toffees out t 5.25 to make it four league wins in a row – a draw is priced in the middle at 3.75.

And we like the look of a stalemate in this game, given the recent form of both sides. A 1-1 draw is priced at 7.50, while you could double your money by backing under 2.5 goals in the game at 2.00.

Spurs welcome champions City

And finally, Monday Night Football is set to come from Wembley Stadium as Tottenham Hotspur host champions Manchester City. Spurs sit fifth despite having won seven of their nine league encounters and four in a row, which should give you some idea of just how tight this title race is shaping up to be.

City, meanwhile, have picked up where they left off last season and sit top of the pile, unbeaten and scoring at a rate of 2.88 goals per game. This past Tuesday night the Citizens demolished Shakhtar in the Champions League and this clash has the potential to be the tie of the round.

And it is champions City who come in as favourites to continue their winning streak. The champions are at just 1.80 to take the points while Tottenham, despite home advantage, out at 4.00 to make it five league wins on the bounce.

And given their recent form and with the fans behind them, we are expecting Tottenham to just nick this one. A 2-1 win for Spurs is priced competitively at 15.00, offering comfortably over a ten-fold return on any investment.
