Sunday Premier League Tips

We preview both of the televised games on Sunday, featuring Everton vs Man City at Goodison Park, and followed by Man United vs Liverpool at Old Trafford.

Everton (+1)Asian Handicap19/17BetVictor

City’s season hasn’t gone as well as the bookmakers were predicting back in August. Pep Guardiola’s side were best price 13/5 favourites to win the title at Betfred, but are currently fifth in the table with local rivals United now just 3 points behind them.

Everton have also had difficulties this term – but Ronald Koeman’s side have had a steady last few weeks and they are now in 7th place, albeit 9 points behind United.

Despite losing 2 of their last 3 away games, City are 17/20 favourites with BetVictor, while Everton are available at 7/2 with Unibet and the draw at 29/10 with BetVictor.

Everton came back from the Etihad earlier in the season with a point after drawing 1-1, having taken the lead from a Romelu Lukaku goal back in mid-October.

And we feel that maybe the bookmakers have this one wrong – while we agree that City should be favourites, we don’t think they should be odds-on at Goodison Park.

We therefore think that Everton are good value to win at 7/2, and also recommend backing them on the Asian Handicap getting a 0.5 goal start at 19/17 with BetVictor.

Romelu Lukaku has scored three in his last four games and a total of 17 goals in just 24 appearances this season – he can be backed at 11/2 with Bet365 to score first.

United host Liverpool at Old Trafford, with these sides having played out a 0-0 draw earlier in the season, with Jose Mourinho parking the bus at Anfield back in October.

But draws between these big rivals are rare – in fact there have been just two draws in their last 33 Premier League matches dating back to 2000 (none at Old Trafford).

United are best price 11/10 favourites to win on Sunday with Sky Bet, who also offer the best odds of 10/3 on Liverpool, with that unlikely draw available at 12/5.

While United fans will expect a more offensive performance from their side at home than their ultra defensive tactics at Anfield, we very much expect Jose Mourinho will set up his team to stifle and frustrate Jugen Klopp’s side again, and try to nick a win.

We therefore recommend a maximum bet on Under 2.5 Goals at best odds of 17/20 with Betfair – while we also suggest backing the 1-0 home win at 15/2 with Betfred.

Wayne Rooney would simply love to score his 250th goal for Manchester United, to surpass Sir Bobby Charlton’s record of 249, against Liverpool here at Old Trafford.

He is best price 11/2 with Paddy Power to score first, but is not certain to start and so we prefer stand-out odds of 4/1 on offer with William Hill on Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
