The quest for the title continues in the Premier League, and with just a few weeks left until the Boxing Day matches, the teams are fighting tooth to nail. It‘s getting interesting to say the least, and this week, Man City will be looking to secure a point advantage, and both Man United and Liverpool – to climb up in the Table.
Man City shouldn‘t have too big of a problem with keeping their first place as they‘re meeting Stoke City this week. Is a victory really guaranteed for Man City? After all, the Potters did manage to win 1:0 last year in a league game. The UK-licensed bookie TonyBet seems to think that history won‘t repeat itself though, and has given Man City the odds of 31/50 for a win against Stoke‘s 47/10.
However, the team’s weakened by injuries that could have been the core of drawing the game vs Aston Villa and losing rather miserably to Liverpool and Juventus. Sergio Aguero is expected to come back on the 5th of December, so it’s still up in the air whether he’ll join in the game against the Potters, and Vincent Kompany – only on the 12th, which is brilliant news for their opponents.
Now Man United is going to be facing West Ham, who made a name for themselves after winning games against teams like Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, and even Man City. However, lately they weren‘t looking as good, losing to the Spurs and Watford and drawing against West Brom and Everton, which explains the odds of just 33/4 they got for a win.
Liverpool has been brilliant lately, having won their four last games in a row, including a 4:1 against Man City in PL and 6:1 against Southampton in the League Cup. Winning against Newcastle would not be at all surprising given how much of an influence Klopp seems to have made, and the TonyBet bookies agree, giving Liverpool the odds of 3/5 for a win.
When some fans have their hopes up for a title – or for a top 4 finish – there are quite a few teams that are fighting another kind of battle, hoping to not get relegated. There is still enough time for a lot to change, which seems to be the trend this year in the Premier League – so kick back and see if anything surprises you this week, too.
