IT was February 5th 2021 when Paddy Power paid out on Manchester City as Premier League champions last season and it surely won't be long before Paddy gets his big fat wallet out again.
At that stage Pep Guardiola's men were just three points clear, with a game in hand, ahead of a trip to Anfield. This term they go in to the new year eight points ahead as we move in to the second half of the season. Results this week have gone City's way and they're now just 1/8 to retain the title.
Rivals United find themselves a massive 22 points behind their city rivals, albeit they have three games in hand, one of which is tonight's match against struggling Burnley.
Burnley are 13/2 to add to their solitary victory this season while the Red Devils are 2/5 to take the three points.
All is not well at United and Ralf Rangnick expressed his frustration after a disappointing 1-1 draw at Newcastle on Monday. He'll be without Bruno Fernandes so penalty duties will fall to Cristiano Ronaldo who is 8/11 a SBK to score anytime. A home win combined with a Ronaldo goal pays even money at Bet365.
In the Championship Bournemouth got the show back on the road on Monday with a 1-0 win over QPR following five without a win. They should make it two wins in a row with a win over third-bottom Cardiff City at 4/6.
Nottingham Forest (evens) suffered their first defeat in 10 to Middlesbrough on Boxing Day bu can bounce back with a win over Huddersfield at the City Ground. The Terriers have been in decent form themselves but only two of thier wins have come against teams in the top 10.
