The pick of the action from this week’s Premier League action comes from Old Trafford with the Manchester derby as United host City, whilst four other games are also played across Tuesday and Wednesday.

Manchester United v Manchester City Betting Tips

Manchester United are on the hunt for their third win on the bounce on Tuesday evening as they host cross-city neighbours City, who are also in need of the three points to keep the heat on Premier League pace-setters Chelsea.

City have had the better of the two rivals in recent meetings, handing out a 4-1 drubbing when they met at Eastlands back in September, whilst they snatched a 2-1 win in this fixture in April last season.

Following a less than impressive run which saw Manuel Pellegrini’s side fall out of the FA Cup and Champions League, the Blues have recovered in recent weeks, beating Hull City 2-0 before thrashing strugglers Fulham 5-0 at the weekend.

Edin Dzeko is in line for a return for the visitors following illness but Sergio Aguero misses out with a persisting hamstring injury.

Rio Ferdinand, Jonny Evans, Chris Smalling and Antonio Valencia all face late fitness tests for United but David Moyes will definitely be without the suspended Nemanja Vidic and the injured Robin van Persie.

City head into the game as 5/4 favourites with Bet Victor, whilst Totesport, amongst others, price a United win at 12/5.

BET OF THE DAY: There are generally goals in this fixture, with five or more in five of their last seven meetings. Over 4.5 goals at 9/2 with Sportingbet is definitely worth a punt.

The match is live on Sky Sports 1 from 7:45pm on Tuesday night.

Liverpool v Sunderland Betting Tips

The pick of Wednesday night’s games sees another title-contending side Liverpool take on relegation scrappers Sunderland.

The Merseysiders are in terrific form, winning their last six league games and are yet to be defeated in the Premier League so far in 2014. They go into the match in second, just four points behind Chelsea.

Opponents Sunderland meanwhile, are in deep trouble in 18th and three points from safety, after picking up just one point from their last 12.

Liverpool danger-men Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge both netted as Liverpool nicked a 3-1 at the Stadium of Light back in September and the Reds have won three of the last six matches against the Black Cats.

Jose Enrique is the only absentee from Brendan Rodgers’ ranks whilst the visitors remain without Steven Fletcher and Kieran Westwood.

Liverpool are 2/11 favourites with Paddy Power, whilst Bet 365 offer long odds of 18/1 on an unlikely Sunderland victory.

Catch this one live on Sky Sports 1 from 8pm on Wednesday evening.

Other Premier League Betting

Arsenal will hope to hit back from their embarrassing 6-0 defeat to Chelsea on Saturday when they host Swansea City on Tuesday evening.

The Gunners are 8/15 favourites wit Bet Victor to secure the victory, whilst Swansea, who have not won in eight, are priced at 13/2 by Betfred.

The other match on Tuesday night sees sixth placed Everton continue their quest for Europa League action next season as they host eight-placed Newcastle.

Both sides have won three of their last four in the league but home advantage makes Everton 13/10 favourites with William Hill, whilst Newcastle are available at 12/5 with Bet 365.

The other game on Wednesday sees a West Ham side, who have lost their last three, face Hull City who beat West Brom 2-0 at the weekend. West Ham are 7/5 favourites with Bet Victor whilst Bet 365 offer 12/5 on a Hull win.
