Had Chris Wood shown a better touch, when gifted with a superb chance, Burnley would probably have taken the lead against Manchester City and there are few harder nuts to crack than Sean Dyche’s men defending a narrow lead at home. To Liverpool’s disappointment, Burnley went down to a single Aguero goal and now travel to the Reds’ local rivals Everton – a team that also knows how to defend. John Newsome previews this and all other matches in game-week 37. The English Premier League season is coming to an end and there is still plenty to play for, at both ends of the table!

EVERTON v BURNLEY
Everton entertain Burnley at Goodison Park live on Sky Sports Friday Night Football. The Toffees played in a drab 0-0 draw down at Selhurst Park last time out with not much to say on the game other than Marco’s men didn’t lose and that’s now 13-points from a possible 18 and leaves Everton on 50-points in 8th position in the Premier League Table, 4-points behind Wolves and on the same 50-points as Watford. Everton have this home fixture against the Clarets and a final away trip to Tottenham’s swanky new stadium to try and seal 7th position and a possible Europa League entry. However, Marco may just have a little chat with today’s opponent’s manager Sean Dyche as to whether it’s a good idea to enter the Europa League in the early qualifying stages. Sean won’t say in public that that’s the reason Burnley suffered for a good part in this campaign but in private Sean secretly knows the Europa League had a damaging effect on the Clarets season.
Burnley head over to Goodison Park off the back of a 1-0 defeat against Pep’s High Flying City. The Clarets held out for a large period of the game against City and defended doggedly but in truth, the pressure City put on their goal, ultimately, City were always going to score. The only goal came by way of a Goal Line Technology. One of the best things brought into our beloved game. The ball was adjudged to be a mere 29.3 Millimetres over the line. The best thing about Goal-line Technology is no one argues the decision. There would be uproar prior to the technology. Uproar from the City players if not given and uproar from the Burnley players if given. Now, the referee just points to his wrist, gives the goal and everyone moves on. A brilliant introduction to the game.
At Turf Moor on Boxing Day, it appeared Burnley had too much Turkey the day before and were well beaten by Everton. Forgotten Man Yerry Mina, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Richarlison and 2 from Lucas Digne were the Toffees goal scorers in an emphatic 5-1 victory. Ben Gibson scored the Clarets consolation.
Bet 365 offer Everton at Odds On 6/11, the Draw at 3/1 and 5/1 for Burnley to come away with all 3-points.
Bet 365 offer 6/1 Richarlison Scores First and 17/5 Chris Wood Scores Anytime.
Home Win 2-0
BOURNEMOUTH v TOTTENHAM
Early Saturday Afternoon Football live on Sky Sports sees Bournemouth host Tottenham at the Vitality Stadium. Eddie and the Cherries got a great point in the South Coast Derby against Southampton last Saturday with the excellent Callum Wilson getting 2-goals at St Mary’s, his 2nd being the equaliser to earn Bournemouth a great point. Dan Gosling got the Cherries 1st-goal. Eddie Howe has done another great job this season and the faithful should be proud of his achievements. With a couple of games to go first one hosting Tottenham and then an away visit to Selhurst Park to finish off the season comfortably in mid-table. Eddie will hope to have a few new signings for next term and whilst the prospects of signing for Bournemouth may not seem appetising, they are establishing themselves as a good Premier League side who play football the right way and a top player from the Championship or Europe, wouldn’t go far wrong in signing for Eddie and the Cherries.
Tottenham head South early on Saturday morning and play in this Saturday 12.30 PM slot for the 4th weekend in a row. This trip to the Vitality comes a couple of days after Spurs play Ajax in the Semi-Final of the Champions League. After a great start to life at the Chas and Dave Memorial Stadium, Mauricio’s men came unstuck at the weekend losing for the first time at their new home and conceding a goal for the first time after West Ham came across London and went away with all 3-points after beating Tottenham 1-0. It’s argued that the players had one eye on the said game against Ajax but it’s not necessarily going to be the same players playing on Tuesday Night. Certainly, Son Heung-Min won’t be playing against Ajax as he is suspended, it’s unlikely Juan Foyth will start at Right-back and the Centre-back pairing of Sanchez and Alderweireld may be different and include Jan Vertonghan with Danny Rose reverting back to his usual position at Left-back. After the weekend’s games, Tottenham remain in 3rd-place in the Premier League but it’s very tight between themselves, Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United for a Top 4 finish. There used to be the talk of a Top 4 elite number of clubs. Now it’s supposedly a Top 6 elite number of clubs. In reality, it is really a Top 2 elite number of clubs with Liverpool and Man City or Man City and Liverpool being head and shoulders above the other 18 clubs in the Premier League.
Tottenham in 3rd are 21-points behind Liverpool and have lost a 3rd of their 36-games currently played this season. The reason Spurs are so high is they rarely draw. It is better to Win a game and then Lose a game than Draw 2 games. Maybe other teams should look at this structure for next season. Going into a game with the only thought of not getting beat isn’t necessarily the best foresight. Maybe going into a game thinking we are going to Win today and if we get beat, so be it. That said, a team do need the players and Mauricio has assembled a great squad at Tottenham. Mr Pochettino will be hoping Mr Levy puts his hand in his pocket and buys him a couple of players. If it doesn’t appear appetising for a top class player to go to the Vitality, that cannot be said for a player not signing for Tottenham. It’s rumoured Harry Kane may just be fit for the final few games and the Champions League final. What Tottenham mustn’t do is underestimate Ajax. Real Madrid did just that in the Last 16 of that particular competition then Cristiano Ronaldo’s Juventus side did the same in the Quarter-Final. Ajax are a good team so progression to the Champions League final is not straight forward for Tottenham.
Before Tottenham finally got into their new stadium, Bournemouth took on Spurs at Wembley on Boxing Day. Tottenham comfortably beat the Cherries 5-0 with goals from Christian Eriksen, Lucas Moura, Harry Kane and 2 from Son Heung-Min.
Bet 365 offer Bournemouth at 7/2, the Draw at 11/4 and Odds On 5/7 for Tottenham to come away with all 3-points.
Bet 365 offer 6/4 that Tottenham Score in Both Halves and 12/5 Tottenham Win to Nil.
Away Win 0-2
WOLVES v FULHAM
A match-up between two of the Promoted teams from the Championship last season. Unfortunately for Fulham, their time in the Premier League is coming to an end, however, Wolves have been sensational in their time in the Top Flight. Wolves sort of avenged their FA Cup Semi-Final defeat against Watford last Saturday beating Javi Gracia’s Hornets 2-1 at Vicarage Rd. Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota were the Gold and Blacks goal scorers giving Nuno’s men the 3-points which take them onto 54-points and into the possible Europa League place of 7th in the Premier League. Finishing 7th will only result in a Europa League entry if Man City beat Watford in the FA Cup final. So theoretically Wolves could finish 7th above Watford but Watford would play in the Europa League should they beat Man City in that final. Wolves have this penultimate fixture against Fulham at Molineux and then have the unenviable proposition of going to Anfield for their final game of the season to take on Jurgen’s Title Chasing Liverpool. Whatever happens in the final 2-games, Wolves have had a great first season back in the Promised Land and a few key signings in the close season will help Nuno push on next term.
Since being relegated, Fulham are now one of the inform teams in the Premier League winning their previous 3-games matching Liverpool and Man City. Ryan Babel hit a superb strike to earn the Cottages all 3-points against Cardiff on Saturday. McDonald’s Boy Scott Parker has done brilliantly since taking over as the interim boss and Shad Khan must now be tempted to give Scott the job permanently. The worry for the Cottages faithful must be that firstly, the Championship is a different beast to the Premier League with games virtually Saturday and Tuesday throughout the season and secondly, can Scott keep hold of his better players such as Red-headed Ryan, the other Ryan and Aleksandar Mitrovic?
Both Ryan Babel and Ryan Sessegnon along with Big Mit will be targets for the lower to mid-table Premier League teams. Fulham are probably the best equipped of the 3-relegated clubs to bounce straight back and giving Scott the job permanently might not be the worse decision Shad has made. At Craven Cottage on Boxing Day, Ryan Sessegnon gave Fulham the lead which lasted until the 85th-minute when Romain Saiss equalised for Wolves to give both teams a festive point.
Bet 365 offer Wolves at Odds On 1/2, the Draw at 16/5 and 5/1 for Fulham to come away with all 3-points.
Bet 365 offer Evens 1/1 for Under 2.5 Goals and 15/2 for a 1-1 Scoreline.
WEST HAM v SOUTHAMPTON
West Ham and Michail Antonio now have the honour of being a quiz-question of the future. “Who were the first team to beat Tottenham at Spurs New Stadium?” and “Who was the first opposition player to score at Spurs New Stadium?” The answers are West Ham and Michail Antonio. Michail got the solitary goal in the 1-0 victory against Tottenham on Saturday. The victory takes Manuel Pellegrini’s Bubbles onto 49-points. The Hammers faithful are justified in wanting more from their boys after the investment made at the beginning of the season. Marco Arnautovic had a decent game against Tottenham but looked at times too isolated and perhaps needs a partner to play off. Felipe Anderson also played well at the new stadium as did Declan Rice and the majestic Bubble in Mark Noble was outstanding never shying away from wanting the ball. A real inspiration to young Declan.
Southampton played in a very entertaining 3-3 draw against Bournemouth on Saturday with the point earned guaranteeing the Saints survival in the Premier League for another season. Shane Long opened the scoring after only 12-minutes, however, is 11-minutes and 53-seconds slower than when he opened the scoring against Watford on Tuesday. James Ward-Prowse and Matt Target completed the Saints scoring. Ralph Hasenhüttl has done a remarkable job after taking over from Mark Hughes and a couple of additions in the summer could give the Saints faithful hope of a season not fighting relegation.
At St Mary’s just after Christmas, the Saints gave West Ham a late present of 3-festive points. Felipe Anderson scored twice in the 2-1 victory for the Hammers with Nathan Redmond replying for Wreck-It Ralph’s men.
Bet 365 offer West Ham at 7/5, the Draw at 12/5 and 19/10 for Southampton to come away with all 3-points.
Bet 365 offer 7/1 Marco Arnautovic Scores First and 7/1 for West Ham to Win Both Halves.
Home Win 3-1
CARDIFF v CRYSTAL PALACE
Late Saturday Afternoon Football live on BT Sports. Despite not mathematically confirmed, Cardiff look to be heading to the Championship along with Huddersfield and Fulham after just one season in the Top Flight. The Bluebirds really needed a victory on Saturday against already relegated Fulham but came away from the Capital empty-handed after losing 1-0. Brighton’s subsequent hard-fought draw against Newcastle effectively means Cardiff are 4-points adrift of Brighton and have a 14-goal worse deficit over the Seagulls. Until confirmed, Neil Warnock’s men will fight on and know that 2-wins can still go along way in helping them stay in the Premier League. Cardiff have this home game against Crystal Palace then travel to Old Trafford for the final game of the season. The problem for Cardiff though is they have only scored 3-goals in the last 9-Premier League games. Brighton have to travel to the Emirates then host Man City in their final encounter. Another problem for Cardiff is if they do need a result at Old Trafford to avoid relegation, Manchester United on their own are a tough proposition but they now have Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the wheel. Ole was unceremoniously dumped from his wheel at Cardiff in his first venture into management in the Premier League.
His reign at Cardiff only lasted 9-months and included Cardiff’s relegation from the Premier League in 2014. After being sacked by Cardiff, Ole won’t hold any favours towards the Bluebirds and Cardiff, if not already relegated, may find a victory at Old Trafford, hard to come by. Ironically, Ole’s first game as interim boss at United was an emphatic 5-1 victory against Cardiff just before Christmas. Crystal Palace head to Wales off the back of a 0-0 stalemate against Everton on Saturday. Roy Hodgson could confirm ex-Palace boss Neil Warnock’s fate with a positive result in Wales and anything other than a Cardiff win will see Cardiff relegated. Palace are comfortable in mid-table on 43-points and lie 3-points off West Ham in 11th position in the Premier League Table.
A win against Cardiff married with West Ham defeat would put Roy’s boys above the Bubbles on goal difference. On Boxing Day at Selhurst Park, the fans didn’t see any festive goals with both teams sharing the points after a 0-0 draw.
Bet 365 offer Cardiff at 7/4, the Draw at 12/5 and 29/20 for Crystal Palace to come away with all 3-points.
Bet 365 offer 3/1 that Crystal Palace Win to Nil and 7/1 that Crystal Palace Score a Penalty.
Away Win 0-2
NEWCASTLE v LIVERPOOL
Further Saturday Night Football live on Sky Sports sees Premier League title-chasing Liverpool head to St James Park. Football on a Saturday Night has got to be better than a new look Simon Cowell on Britain’s Not Got Any Talent. The words “Simon” “had” “some” “work” “done “ spring to mind. His face has been lifted that far up, his trousers will be under his chin soon. Enough frivolity. Newcastle come into this game off the back of a 1-1 draw away at Brighton last Saturday. Ayoze Perez continued his fine goalscoring run with the Magpies goal at the Amex. That’s 5 from the last 3-games for Ayoze and gives the little Spaniard 11-goals for this season which is a tremendous return. The Toon Army must have loved the Premier League Fixture Compilers sending them down to Brighton late on a Saturday afternoon. The bare-chested Black and Whites were heard shouting “Hoo Much ?” When ordering a pint of Brighton’s finest. Some even had to check whether they needed a Passport to travel to the Amex. Obviously, after this final home game, the Premier League Fixture Compilers will give them a game close to Newcastle for the final game of the season. Huddersfield are the closest Premier League team to Newcastle geographically so in theory, the Compilers will let the Toon Army travel to West Yorkshire for the final game of the season considering it’s on a Sunday Afternoon. Not so, the Premier League Fixture Compilers are sending Newcastle and the Toon Army down to London to take on Fulham. Brilliant! Hooo Much?
Liverpool have certainly Got Talent and destroyed already relegated Huddersfield on Friday Night Football. The first of the goals in the 5-0 victory against Huddersfield came after just 15-seconds. Liverpool had obviously been watching the Huddersfield goalkeeper in the game against Watford last weekend. Naby Keita’s opener was identical to the goal conceded against Watford. The ball gets knocked back to the Huddersfield goalkeeper Jonas Lossl, he casually plays it to his Centre Back who is pounced upon by the Watford/Liverpool players and a goal is scored. Sadio Mane got a double as did Mo Salah giving Jurgen’s Reds the 3-points to temporarily take them back to the summit of the Premier League until City’s victory over Burnley some 48-hours later. This game at St James is again before City play next so Liverpool could follow the pattern and leapfrog back to the Top. However, this game also comes after a visit to the Nou Camp or Camp Nou depending on the preference, to challenge Lionel and the Boys of Barcelona in the 1st-leg of the Champions League Semi-Final. It’s easily conceivable that this game against Newcastle and ex-Reds supremo Rafa Benitez might be the game that decides the Premier League title. Why should it be that the Reds confess that it’s hard turning hopes into dreams but, why, did they see that Jurgen cocoons himself at nights finding soup in his flies?
There’s a word for the way but no words can Jurgen say so a lonely man he stays. On Boxing Day at Anfield, Dejan Lovren, a Mo Salah penalty, Xherdan Shaqiri and Fabinho were the goal scorers in an emphatic 4-0 victory for Jurgen’s Reds.
Bet 365 offer Newcastle at 8/1, the Draw at 9/2 and massive Odds On 3/10 for Liverpool to come away with all 3-points.
Bet 365 offer 12/1 that Mo Salah gets a Hat-trick and 11/2 for Liverpool to Come From Behind and Win.
Away Win 1-3
HUDDERSFIELD v MAN UNITED
Early Sunday Afternoon Football live on Sky Sports.
This is the Terriers faithful final chance to see their team in the Premier League at the John Smiths Stadium. After a mild season last term, it’s been bitter this year for the Blue and Whites who host Manchester United after a 5-0 drubbing away at Anfield. What was significant in the loss away against Liverpool was the first goal conceded. The goal was identical to one conceded the previous week against Watford. It’s admiral that goalkeepers all want to play football now but their main objective is what it says on the tin, Goal Keeping! Jan Siewart needs to have a word with Jonas Lossl and advise the Danish ‘keeper to boot the ball down the field or at worse, if he feels the need to pass to his players, pass to the side not straight down the middle. The goal at Watford last week conceded against Gerard Deulofeu after only 5-minutes was exactly the same as the goal conceded against Liverpool and Naby Keita after just 15-seconds. Jan should be shouting “Das Boot it long !!”
Manchester United head the short distance down the M62 to take on the Terriers after a 1-1 draw against Chelsea. This was United’s best performance in a number of games after a dismal period for the Red Devil’s. What is significant in the draw against Chelsea was the absence of Fred and the return of Ander Herrera. United have missed Ander and it’s rumoured he will be leaving Old Trafford to join Paris Saint Germain at the end of the season. The Equaliser, once again, has shown a complete lack of knowledge and respect for the United faithful. Ed Woodward has allowed Ander’s contract to run down and not offer the influential Spaniard a deal on similar terms to Paul Pogba and the rest. United are a different side with Ander Herrera in the team. He frees up Pogba and allows the Frenchman to showcase his talent. Ed Woodward should go straight to Ander’s agent and offer him whatever deal he wants, then build a team around him. Ander Herrera is the new Michael Carrick. In the draw against Chelsea, Juan Mata got United’s goal but another devastating error by David De Gea gifted Chelsea their goal to earn the draw. In truth, United faded in the 2nd-half and the players coming on as substitutes are simply not good enough.
Alexis Sanchez isn’t the same player he was at Barcelona and Arsenal. Marcus Rashford was injured and replaced by Alexis who looks lost at Old Trafford. What will happen, is like a lot of players who find the Manchester United shirt to heavy to bear, will leave and re-ignite their career elsewhere just like Diego Forlan, Phil Davenport and Alan Brazil. Barnsley FC are on the brink of promotion to the Championship and that will be confirmed before this game kicks-off. Alexis could re-ignite his career at Oakwell if he fancies it. There are a few injuries at Old Trafford so team selection could be key. Ole! blood some youth.! Alan Hansen once said “You can’t win anything with kids” well Ole, you’ll not win anything with that lot you’ve got now. One thing to mention is the performance and error of David De Gea. Firstly, before lambasting David, look at all the things he has done for Manchester United. The saves he has made, the points he has saved and the endless times David has got Manchester United out of the mire. Manchester United beat Tottenham 1-0 at Wembley a few months back. United only beat Tottenham 1-0 because of David De Gea. Before hanging David our to dry, take a minute to thank David for all the saves he has made to keep Manchester United in the game. Yes, David has had a bad few weeks. David will come again and be the best goalkeeper out there. Whether at Old Trafford or in Madrid. Respect David De Gea. He’s done more good than bad!
At Old Trafford on Boxing Day Nemanja Matic and a couple from Paul Pogba gave United a 3-1 victory. Martin Jorgensen got the solitary Terriers goal.
Bet 365 offer Huddersfield at 17/2, the Draw at 4/1 and Odds On 1/3 for United to come away with all 3-points.
Bet 365 offer Evens 1/1 that United Score in Both Halves and 4/1 Manchester United Score a Penalty.
Away Win 0-4
CHELSEA v WATFORD
Sunday Afternoon Football, however, not a live television game. Chelsea host Watford at Stamford Bridge after getting a valuable point at Old Trafford on Sunday. Marcos Alonso’s equaliser after a fumble from De Gea earned Chelsea a great point in their quest to finish in the Top 4. Chelsea are now in 4th-place, 2-points behind Tottenham but more importantly 2-points ahead of Arsenal in 5th and 3-points above Manchester United in 6th. Before this Sunday game against Watford, Chelsea travel to Frankfurt to take on Eintracht in the 1st-leg of the Semi-Final of the Europa League. The Blues could ultimately play Arsenal in the final of that particular competition and the winners will be in next season’s Champions League. So, in theory, Chelsea could finish 4th and then face Arsenal for a place in the Champions League. If that happens, will Chelsea be obliged to let Arsenal win so that the Premier League have 5 teams in next season’s Champions League? Surely not, still it’s something to think about. Sarri-Ball is rubbish apparently! Unfortunately for the Blues, it is increasingly unlikely that Eden Hazard won’t be at Stamford Bridge next season. If Chelsea have a transfer embargo placed on them, it could be a long season for the Blues faithful next term.
Watford understandably have one eye on the FA Cup Final which takes place on the 18th May. The Hornets were beaten 2-1 at Vicarage Rd on Saturday by their FA Cup Semi- Final conquests Wolves. Andre Gray got Watford’s goal in the defeat which leaves them joint 10th in the Premier League Table on 50-points. Javi Gracia’s men are vying for 7th-position in the Table but ironically, their performance in the FA Cup final against Man City will decide if 7th-position is enough to gain entry into the Europa. If Man City beat Watford in that said final, 7th will be good enough, however, if Watford do pull off a shock victory against Pep’s High Flying City, Watford will be in the Europa League and whoever finishes 7th won’t.
When these 2 met at Vicarage Rd on Boxing Day, an Eden Hazard Double either side of the break, was the difference after Roberto Pereyra’s 1st-half injury time equaliser for Watford. The 2-1 victory for Sarri-Ball gave the Blues a nice festive 3-points to take into the New Year.
Bet 365 offer Chelsea at Odds On 4/11, the Draw at 17/4 and 6/1 for Watford to come away with all 3-points.
Bet 365 offer 7/1 for a 2-0 Scoreline in favour of Chelsea and 4/1 for Chelsea to Score a Penalty.
Home Win 2-0
ARSENAL v BRIGHTON
Late Sunday Afternoon Football live on Sky Sports. Arsenal are just rubbish at the moment. The trip to the King Power on Sunday resulted in another Premier League loss for Unai’s Gooners who now realistically only have the Europa League to rely on to gain entry into next season’s Champions League. The 3-0 defeat against Leicester was Arsenal’s 3rd Premier League defeat in a row and all 3 defeats resulted in the Gunners conceding 3-goals. Arsenal will have played against Valencia in Spain in the Europa League before this fixture against Brighton and entry into the Champions League is probably the only way Unai will want to go considering he has won the Europa League previously. The problem Unai may encounter in putting all the Gooners eggs in a Europa basket is that they could face Chelsea in the final of the Europa League and if Chelsea are confirmed as 4th place in the Premier League, could lose out twice in their quest to gain access into the Champions League. However, that’s for the future and this game against Brighton could determine Brighton’s future.
Brighton got a valuable point at home against Newcastle on Saturday which will go along way in deciding Chris Hughton’s Premier League survival. Pascal Gross got the Seagulls equaliser after Newcastle had taken the lead in the 1st-half. Brighton are now 4-points above Cardiff and have a far superior goal difference but will feel that they do need at least a point against Arsenal to secure their Premier League status for another year. In reality, Cardiff have only scored 2-goals in their last 5-games so the points Brighton already have may be enough to secure another season in the Premier League.
On Boxing Day at the Amex, a Jurgen Locadia goal cancelled out Pierre-Emerick Aubamayang’s early strike for Arsenal to share the festive points after a 1-1 draw.
Bet 365 offer Arsenal at Odds On 1/3, the Draw at 15/4 and 9/1 for Brighton to come away with all 3-points.
Bet 365 offer 6/1 that Pierre-Emerick Aubamayang Scores First and 5/4 that Arsenal Win to Nil.
Home Win 2-0
MAN CITY v LEICESTER
Bank Holiday Monday Night Football live on Sky Sports see Brendan Rodgers take his Foxes up to the Etihad to try and give his old club Liverpool a helping hand in their quest for the Premier League Title. Man City went back to the summit of the Premier League after an attritional 1-0 away victory against Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday. The solitary goal by Sergio Aguero was given via Goal Line Technology which is the best modern invention in today’s game. The mere 29.3 millimetres that the ball crossed the line was enough to give Pep’s Citizens the 3-points that took them back to the Top of the Premier League. Two games to go and all to play for. Whatever happens, City and Liverpool are the stand out teams this season and it really is a Top 2, not a Top 6. This will be a tough game against Brendan Rodgers Foxes especially with Brendan’s connection to Liverpool. In truth, the winners of the Premier League will be the best team, so with 2-games left, the fight is still on.
Leicester comfortably beat Arsenal on Sunday 3-0. Youri Tielemans and a double from Sheffield Superstar Jamie Vardy gave the Foxes the goals that earned Brendan’s boys 3-points. Leicester lie in 8th-place in the Premier League Table on 51-points which is 3-points behind Wolves in 7th-place. It’s rumoured that Brendan doesn’t want a Europa League entry but will do his utmost to try and prevent Man City winning the Premier League above his old Liverpool side. Things have just started to calm down North of the Border after Brendan left Celtic. Rod Stewart has only just stopped crying. He’s Celtic, United but Brendan has decided that Leicester is the best place he’d rather be.
At the King Power on Boxing Day Leicester inflicted 1 of the 4 Premier League defeats on Pep’s Citizens beating Man City 2-1. City did take the lead through the Bernardo of the Silva’s but Marc Albrighton equalised for the Foxes before the break and Ricardo Pereira got the winner for Claud Puel’s men to give the Foxes faithful a very happy Christmas.
Bet 365 offer Man City at a massive Odds On 1/10, the Draw at 8/1 and an outstanding 20/1 for Leicester to come away with all 3-points.
Bet 365 offer 4/1 that Sergio Aguero Scores First and 17/10 Jamie Vardy Scores Anytime.
Home Win 4-1
