There are some tantalising Premier League this weekend, none more so than Manchester United v Liverpool on Sunday, plus there’s the North London derby between Tottenham and Arsenal later that afternoon.
Hull City v Manchester City Betting Tips
Manchester City will be hoping for a return to form with their hopes of a quadruple now refined to a league and League Cup double, following their FA Cup and Champions League during the past week.
But Manuel Pellegrini must get his troops firing on all cylinders on Saturday if they’re to snatch a win at Hull, who have proved themselves as no pushovers at the KC Stadium this season, and currently sit 13th in the league.
Despite securing their place at Wembley for the FA Cup semi-finals next month with last Sunday’s 3-0 win over Sunderland, Steve Bruce’s men have been in poor league form of late, picking up just seven points out of a possible 27.
The Tigers are set to recall Nikica Jelavic and Shane Long, who were both cup-tied last weekend, whilst City may be without Sergio Aguero again after his recurring hamstring injury returned in Wednesday’s Champions League defeat at Barcelona.
I think this result is a hard one to call, with both sides out of form at the moment. City are favourites with William Hill pricing them at 4/7 but there is value on a Hull win at 11/2 with Bet 365. A draw is priced at 10/3 with Ladbrokes.
Catch this one live on BT Sport 1 from 12:45pm.
Manchester United v Liverpool Betting Tips
Manchester United recorded back-to-back Premier League wins for the first time since the end of the December when they beat West Brom 3-0 last weekend but the heat is back on this Sunday as they take on old rivals Liverpool.
The majority of United players seem resigned to the fact they won’t be able to qualify for the Champions League this year, and the fact they’ve won just four games in the new year magnifies how much of a struggle this season has been.
On the flipside, Liverpool who have for the past decade or so been unable to match their North West rival’s achievements, looked nailed on for a Champions League return and know a win this weekend keep them in the running for the Premier League title.
Lucas Leiva and Mamadou Sakho are both set for returns for Liverpool but Jose Enrique remains sidelined. United will be without Javier Hernandez, Jonny Evans and Nani who are all out injured.
Daniel Sturridge’s fourth minute goal was the only difference when the sides last met in September and I’d back Liverpool to take the points again, with Bet Victor pricing them at 2/1. United are favourites at 3/2 with Paddy Power.
BET OF THE DAY – Luis Suarez Anytime Scorer at 17/10 with Bet Victor.
Watch the match live from 1:30pm on Sky Sports 1.
Tottenham v Arsenal Betting Tips
Another old rivalry is restored later on Sunday as Spurs host Arsenal in the North London derby.
Tim Sherwood is suddenly under pressure, following last weekend’s 4-0 mauling by Chelsea and Thursday’s 3-1 defeat to Porto which almost certainly spells the end of their Europa League campaign.
Arsenal’s European adventure was brought to an end this week too, as they bowed out to Bayern Munich for the second year running, but the defeat also came at a cost, with Mesut Ozil joining Arsenal’s ever-growing injury list.
He joins the likes of Jack Wilshere, Theo Walcott and Aaron Ramsey on the sidelines although there is some good news for Arsene Wenger, with Kim Kallstrom, Natcho Monreal, Kieran Gibbs, Yaya Sanogo and Tomas Rosicky all in line for returns on Sunday.
Spurs have a host of injury problems themselves, with Kyle Walker, Michael Dawson, Erik Lamela and Vlad Chiriches all ruled out for the foreseeable future but Moussa Dembele is in line for a return.
Watch this one on Sky Sports 1 at 4pm on Sunday.
