United to keep Guardiola waiting

Pep Guardiola

With Pep Guardiola set to rotate his squad for Saturday evening’s Manchester derby, United can avoid defeat and make City wait another week before clinching the Premier League title.

Manchester City will be focused on overturning a 3-0 deficit when they take on Liverpool in the second leg of their Champions League quarter-final clash on Tuesday so a draw this weekend could be the best bet at 11/4. Meanwhile, United are 16/5 to inflict only a second Premier League defeat of the campaign on Guardiola’s side.

Jurgen Klopp will almost certainly make wholesale changes to his team as well but Liverpool should still be too strong for a miserable Everton team that are somehow ninth in the table despite being woeful for much of the campaign.

Everton have won only one of the last 22 Merseyside derbies in the Premier League and a draw at 27/10 may be the best Sam Allardyce’s side can hope for this time, while a Liverpool victory and both teams to score can be backed at 47/20.

Brighton and Huddersfield have been involved in more goalless draws than any other top-flight side this season so a 0-0 stalemate at 13/2 could be the clever bet in this one.

A victory for Swansea City at West Brom, available at 12/5, would go a long way to ensuring the Swans avoid relegation this season. The Baggies have recently contrived to lose games from winning positions so a victory for the Welsh side from behind may be worth considering at 33/4.

Dwight Gayle is 11/5 to score at any time for Newcastle United against Leicester City while Crystal Palace are good enough to win at inconsistent Bournemouth and ease their relegation concerns at odds of 2/1.

Tottenham have beaten Stoke City by four goals in each of their last four meetings, including a 5-1 victory against the Potters at Wembley in December. It may not be quite so conclusive this time but a Spurs victory by a two-goal margin can be backed at 14/5.

Finally the match at Vicarage Road between Watford and Burnley looks set to be tight with a 1-1 draw good value at 5/1.
