DON'T what was the worse result in midweek – Man City losing at Wigan or Arsenal being beaten at home by Ostersunds.
To be fair to City they were down to 10 men in the first half while the Gunners were complacent after winning 3-0 in Sweden.
City's defeat ended their dream of landing an impossible quad but the treble's still on. The Premier League is almost theirs, they are Champions League favourites and tomorrow should send the Carabao Cup safely in the direction of their trophy room.
There have been a couple of wobbles for Pep Guardiola's men but they lead Arsenal by 27 points in the league and clearly the better team.
City are hot favourites at 8-13 with William Hill and just 4-11 on the outrights.
For a cup final Arsenal are big at 9-2 with Unibet in 90 minutes while the draw pays 18-5.
The one meeting this season finished 3-1 to City at the Etihad and both sides have scored in the last six meetings – with City's recent success their only one.
A couple of hours before the Cup Final sees the biggest game of the weekend as Man United host Chelsea.
In contrast to City-Arsenal this fixture is a low scorer with the past five meetings at Old Trafford going under 2.5 goals and this season it was 1-0 Chelsea at the Bridge. Under 2.5 pays 17-20 at Black Type while under 1.5 is 12-5 with Marathonbet.
Jose Mourinho again displayed his pragmatic side with Wednesday's 0-0 Champions League draw at Sevilla and his men have conceded just five times at home this campaign.
Chelsea played their best football for ages against Barcelona in midweek but lack depth up front and are over-reliant in Eden Hazard for goals. A 1-0 United win or 0-0 draw are possible outcomes.
Today's Premier League card looks tough. Liverpool should beat West Ham at Anfield but are just 1-4 so consider the home and over 2.5 match goals at 4-6 with Ladbrokes.
Leicester have been strong at home and should beat Stoke at 3-4 with McBookie.
The other games are too tight to call and a draws perm on matches at Bournemouth, Brighton, Burnley, Watford and West Brom. A fivefold pays 390-1 at betfair but the advice would to cover trebles and fourfolds (16 bets).
In the Championship best bets are Norwich at home to Bolton and Preston against Ipswich.
For goals look no further than Fulham v Wolves and Leeds v Brentford while Middlesbrough can add Sunderland's woes by winning the derby.
Sunderland are rooted to the foot after losing at home to Brentford then at Bolton while Middlesbrough are chasing a play-off place and can be backed at 28-25 with Marathonbet at the Riverside.
Plymouth are one point off the League One play-offs after five wins in a row and should make it six at home to Bradford. Derek Adams's men were 250-1 for promotion after a poor start and are a nice price today at 6-4 with McBookie.
In League Two best bets could be Mansfield at home to Coventry. Steve Evans's side are 29-20 at Marathonbet after moving up to fourth with four wins in five while the Sky Blues have suffered four defeats in a row.
