Marquee Match of the Week
The marquee match has to be the Manchester derby even though there is another derby on offer: the Merseyside derby.
Manchester City have been in excellent form in the Premier League, even though they suffered a mid-week 3-0 defeat against Liverpool in the Champions League. Pep Guardiola could rest some key players for the return match to be played in the return leg of the Champions League quarter final match next week.
Even a depleted Manchester City team will be more than good enough to beat the ultra defensive United. However, the focus of the team could play huge factor here. Players could be focusing more on the high-stakes match against Liverpool next week. Therein lies a chance for Manchester United.
Prediction for online betting: A draw.
Other Interesting Matches
The Merseyside derby between Liverpool and Everton has lost its sheen to the outside world. But it is keenly contested even these days even though Liverpool are head and shoulders above their arch rivals. Liverpool, like Manchester City, could be resting their key players. Anyways, they are unlikely to risk Mohaead Salah for this fixture, who limped off midway through the match against Manchester City.
Liverpool’s charismatic manager Jurgen Klopp rarely rests his key players. But here he could rest top players like Firmino and Sadio Mane. Everton have not shown any signs of improvement in this season. So, Klopp can perhaps take this easy.
Prediction for online betting: Liverpool to win comfortably.
Another high-voltage match of the weekend will be the one between Watford and Burnly. Both the teams are having a tremendous season. Burnly are seventh in the league, just five points behind Arsenal. Watford are 11th with a good chance of finishing higher up in the order.
Recent form favours Burnly, who have won their last three matches in a row. There are excellent odds for all the results. You should not let this go.
Prediction for online betting: Burnley to score a narrow win.
