I’m thinking it will be Jack Grealish out to make a point for the likely champions at the Etihad tomorrow.
There’s been plenty of chatter about whether Liverpool legend and now Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard can win or draw against City to give his old club a chance of lifting the Premier League title.
But Grealish still has plenty to prove, and Betfred make him 2/1 to score any time – and 13/2 to score first – against his former club.
Pep Guardiola’s superstars are 1/7 to win the title, with Liverpool, who are one-point adrift ahead of hosting Wolves at Anfield on the final day, at 9/2.
Tottenham, at doomed Norwich, look as if they have done enough to secure fourth spot and in the relegation scramble I think Burnley will make home advantage count against Newcastle and win, making what happens in the Brentford-Leeds clash irrelevant.
Agree? Well, the “as you were” wager – i.e City becoming champs, Spurs clinching fourth and Burnley avoiding the drop – is 4/7 at Betfred.
It’s absolutely brilliant that the Premier League season is going to the final hurdle with everything to be resolved on what will truly be a Super Sunday.
We at Betfred have priced up a special that leaders City are beating Villa at half-time at the Etihad before going on to win the second half, while Liverpool do the same against Wolves – a 6/1 shot.
Liverpool’s Mo Salah is on 22 goals and 1/2 favourite with us for the Golden Boot, although he is being pressed hard by 21-goal Son Heung-Min – while one of my heroes Cristiano Ronaldo is just out of that particular race with 18 league goals.
Ronaldo is the 3/1 favourite to score first in United’s dead rubber at Crystal Palace which is where our new boss Erik ten Hag is reported to be watching in the flesh for the first time before taking up the reins at Carrington on Monday morning.
The exit door will be swirling at our training base, with a fleet of taxis awaiting, but Ronaldo – top scorer in the worst team I can remember – has just got to stay.
Meanwhile, I tuned in on Thursday to watch the inconsistent Warrington play Betfred Super League leaders St Helens… and I wasn’t disappointed!
What a brilliant advertisement for rugby league with Daryl Powell’s Wire at last showing evidence of his rebuild.
When Gareth Widdop went over to give Wolves an early lead, the Saints had to dig in and with a masterful defensive display went on to win a pulsating game 12-10 in the end in front of over 10,000 fans.
St Helens are odds on to make it Grand Final glory four times on the bounce but on this form Warrington at 16/1 look a solid enough bet.
