Finally, a Super Sunday that could live up to its name. With Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea all in action, Premier League fans will be looking forward to sitting down in front of the television for what looks to be another exciting day in England’s top flight.
Pep Guardiola’s side travel to Selhurst Park for a clash with Crystal Palace in Sunday’s early fixture. The Eagles snatched a shock win at the Etihad Stadium earlier in the campaign and the visitors will be looking to settle the score.
Meanwhile, Chelsea head to Anfield knowing that a win will take the Blues back above rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the top four race. For Liverpool, it is all about claiming another win as they look to keep piling the pressure on Manchester City.
That’s enough chitchat for now – it is time to look at Sunday’s double header. 888sport have the latest Premier League betting odds available onsite ahead of both fixtures and punters needing some betting help can check out my thoughts below…
Crystal Palace vs MANCHESTER CITY
Palace have won just two of their previous eight home games – one against Fulham and the other against Huddersfield Town.
Roy Hodgson’s side have struggled to inspire confidence on home soil in recent months but Palace (9/1) could spring a major shock if everything goes to plan on Sunday afternoon.
City have been in fantastic form, winning their last eight Premier League games in a row. On current form, they are deservedly favourites to go on and retain the title…
A 1-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League is the only loss on their record since the start of February and 8/25 for the visitors to win isn’t the worst price to stick in an accumulator.
Finding extra value when City are playing is difficult but 11/10 for the Blues to win to nil on Sunday afternoon is reasonable. The selection has landed in six of their last seven top flight fixtures and another comfortable score line beckons.
City should win but the Eagles are tricky customers and Guardiola will recall December’s 3-2 defeat. An intriguing affair awaits at Selhurst Park.
TIP: Man City to win to nil @ 11/10
PREDICTED SCORE: Crystal Palace 0-2 Man City (Priced at 11/2 with 888sport)
LIVERPOOL vs Chelsea
Liverpool are showing no signs of slowing down in their pursuit of the title and Jurgen Klopp will be demanding another positive performance here.
You could argue that the Reds have rode their luck at times but you need to do that in the title race and 6/4 for Liverpool to lift the trophy represents excellent value.
Chelsea have battled hard to climb into the Premier League top four and Maurizio Sarri has weathered the storm after heavy criticism a couple of months ago.
The Blues, 21/5 to win at Anfield on Sunday, have previous in this fixture – can they put a dent in Liverpool’s Premier League title challenge yet again?
In my opinion, no. Liverpool should prove too strong for Chelsea, especially at Anfield. The Reds have been outstanding on home soil in 2018/19 and it would take a brave man to back against Klopp’s side here.
5/2 for a Liverpool win with both teams scoring looks like a great price. Victory here should give the Reds a boost with easier fixtures on the horizon.
TIP: Liverpool to win and both teams to score @ 5/2
PREDICTED SCORE: Liverpool 3-1 Chelsea (Priced at 12/1 with 888sport)
