Big Premier League Weekend
Manchester City take on Manchester United (12.45), and Spurs take on Chelsea (17.30) later, on the day that could decide the league winner and go a long way to settling who finishes 4th.
If results go United’s way, by tonight they could be back in with an outside chance of pipping Chelsea, it they go Chelsea’s way, then it will be all over.
The race for 4th place looks more likely to go down to the wire, Spurs remarkable victory over Arsenal in midweek has put them right back in the running, but their next two games (after Chelsea, they go to Old Trafford) could define their season.
Although, if these results go against Spurs, they do have a last ‘get out of jail’ card to play with an away fixture at Manchester City on the 5th May.
Manchester City probably thought they would go into the Manchester derby with clear daylight ahead of Tottenham. Spurs 2-1 victory over Arsenal will now increase the pressure on City ahead of the lunch time kick off.
Chelsea are currently unbackable to win the league, they are a best price of 1/7 with 888 Sport and Blue Sq. They are 10/11 with the majority of the bookmakers to beat Spurs, who are 10/3 with Coral, the draw is 13/5 with Bet365.
Spurs are 13/8 with William Hill to finish 4th, while Man City are 8/15 with the same bookie.
City are also 9/5 with Bet365 and Ladbrokes to win the derby. The draw is 5/2 with Bet365 and Totesport, while United are 6/4 with Hills, Ladbrokes, Paddy Power, VC Bet, Stan James and Skybet.
Manchester United are also 7/1 to win the league with Ladbrokes.
