City will be hoping to get back to winning ways after two defeats and two draws in their last four games, including a 4-0 defeat at the Nou Camp on Wednesday.

The bookmakers certainly think they will, at best odds of 1/2 with Bet365, but we’re not so sure and Southampton certainly look very tempting at 7/1 with Boylesports.

Both teams have picked up 10 points from their last five league games, each with 3 wins, 1 draw and 1 defeat and the Saints have conceded just seven goals all season.

City are also in the middle of a very busy period – after this they play Man United in the League Cup on Tuesday and Pep Guardiola is likely to rest players on Sunday.

On balance, we are firmly with the Saints here and we also suggest backing them with a whole goal start on the Asian Handicap at best odds of 11/10 with Bet365.

This way you only lose if Southampton lose by two goals – which has only happened to them twice in their 28 league games in 2016.

We’ll also suggest an each-way bet on their top league goalscorer, Charlie Austin (4 goals), to score the first goal at 17/2, plus a bet on the 1-1 at 8/1, both with Bet365.

Chelsea v Manchester United

Almost as interesting as how the Blues fans treat their former God on Sunday, is how Jose Mourinho approaches this game at his former stamping ground.

Having set up his team to nullify Liverpool on Monday night, it would be surprising if he does not employ the same tactics and this looks likely to be a low scoring game.

Therefore, we suggest backing Under 2.5 Goals at best odds of 7/9 with Unibet (this bet would have won 7 of their last 8 league meetings), plus the draw at 23/10.

For those looking at Correct Scores bets, you could do worse than back both 1-0’s with Bet365, as they refund losing Correct Score bets on all games that finish 0-0.

Finally, we’ll plump for Diego Costa to score the first goal, as he has now scored in four of his last five league games – Paddy Power are offering stand-out odds of 9/2.
