We’re now just six games away from finding out who will be crowned Premier League champions and Liverpool lead the way as we head into this weekend’s fixtures.
Manchester City v Southampton Betting Tips
Manchester City are back in form being unbeaten in six and they still have their own title fate in their own hands with two games in hand over their fellow rivals.
They picked up a decent 1-1 draw at Arsenal last weekend and they need another win to keep the pressure on Chelsea on and Liverpool.
Southampton currently sit eight and are in decent form with three wins in their last four but I struggle to see them picking up a win on Saturday lunchtime with City dropping just three points at the Etihad this campaign.
Sergio Aguero will once again be available following his recurrent hamstring issue but he’ll probably start from the bench. Maya Yoshida, Nathaniel Clyne and Kelvin Davis are the only absentees from Southampton’s team.

Everton v Arsenal Betting Tips
Arsenal’s draw with City last week spelled the end of their title campaign but they must avoid defeat at Everton on Sunday afternoon.
A win for the Toffees would put them right in the frame to snatch that fourth Champions League spot which the Gunners currently occupy – five wins on the bounce leave Everton in fifth, just four points behind Arsenal with a game in hand.
Ross Barkley faces a late fitness test if he’s to be fit for Roberto Martinez’s side but the hosts are still without Stephen Pienaar, Phil Jagielka, Brian Oviedo, Lacina Traore and Arouna Kone.
Arsenal, who have picked up just two win sin their last eight games, are boosted with the return of key midfielder Aaron Ramsey who returns from a thigh strain. Natcho Monreal also returns whilst Serge Gnabry and Kieran Gibbs face late fitness tests.
Everton haven’t beaten Arsenal in any competition since 2007 but Sunday is surely their best chance. The bookies, including William Hill, price them as 3/2 favourites whilst Arsenal are available at 2/1 with Bet Victor. There is good value in a draw at 12/5 with Sportingbet.
Watch this live from 1:30pm on Sunday on Sky Sports 1.
West Ham v Liverpool Betting Tips
Liverpool went top of the league last weekend with the 4-0 win over Tottenham and they’ll be aiming for their ninth consecutive league win as they visit Upton Park in Sunday’s second match.
Hosts West Ham have also been performing well of late with six wins in nine although they have faced a number of sides in the lower reaches of the table.
The Hammers expect to have Kevin Nolan back from a back injury but George McCartney, Joey O’Brien and James Collins all miss out. Brendan Rodgers has now new injury concerns.
Liverpool were 4-1 winners in the return fixture back in December and I fully expect them to take the three points on Sunday. They are 4/9 favourites with Paddy Power whilst West Ham are best priced at 8/1 with Bet 365.
This one is live from 4pm on Sky Sports 1.
