Manchester City need just one point to claim the Premier League title on the final afternoon of the season but Liverpool are waiting in the wings if Manuel Pellegrini’s side are to slip up on Sunday.
Manchester City v West Ham Betting Tips
It may have taken a while to get there, but City’s 4-0 win over Aston Villa in midweek puts them just one point away from reclaiming the Premier League title in 2012.
But as we know from 2012, the final day of the season can be a roller-coaster ride, with City eventually winning the title thanks to a dramatic comeback at home to QPR, which they won 3-2 thanks to a late goal from talisman Sergio Aguero.
And there could be another famous ‘Agueroooooo’ call with the Argentinian returning from a hamstring injury which has troubled him all season. Jesus Navas and Mateja Nastasic are also both expected to return following lay-offs.
Following a torrid mid-season run blighted with injuries, West Ham have recovered and now sit 12th in the league. However their recent form hasn’t been too impressive, with just three wins in the last 10.
You’d have to fancy Manchester City, who have lost just one Premier League home game all season – they are best backed by Paddy Power at 2/11. Bet Victor offer the best price on a West Ham win at 17/1.
BET OF THE DAY – Bosnian striker Edin Dzeko has been in excellent form for City recently, with five goals in three games. Anytime goalscorer in this match at 8/11 with Boylesports.
Watch this game live on Sky Sports 1 from 3pm.
Liverpool v Newcastle United Betting Tips
Two points behind City and with a largely inferior goal difference, Liverpool are relying on West Ham causing a monumental upset at the Etihad to stand any chance of nicking the title.
Defeat to Chelsea a fortnight ago before shipping a 3-0 lead at Crystal Palace on Monday have put them in this position and they must pick themselves up and get the three points against Newcastle tomorrow.
Newcastle would be the type of team you want to play if you need a win though, with the Magpies losing 14 of their last 20 games.
Their 3-0 win against Cardiff City last weekend ended a run of six successive defeats where they conceded 17 goals, scoring only one.
Alan Pardew is a man under pressure with the Toon Army becoming increasingly vocal about his position at the club. David Santon and Sammy Ameobi face late fitness tests if they’re to be back for this game whilst Ryan Taylor will not feature.
The game is live from 3pm on Sky Sports 2.
Tottenham v Aston Villa Betting Tips
The only other matter to be determined on Sunday is who will get the final Europa League spot, Tottenham or Manchester United.
Spurs know a point or better against Aston Villa will be enough to secure that spot but this could well be Tim Sherwood’s final game in charge at White Hart Lane. That said, Spurs have a decent home record of late, winning eight of their last 11.
Villa meanwhile have picked up just one win on their travels in 2014, at Sunderland, and come into this one with just one win in eight.
That said, a lengthy injury list is not helping Paul Lambert, with the likes of Christian Benteke, Joe Bennett and Charles N’Zogbia all injured. Gabriel Agbonlahor, Marc Albrighton and Jores Okore could all return on Sunday.
The match is live on Sky Sports 3 from 3pm.
