City Cut After Mersey Draw

Manchester City are now the 4/11* favourites with Bet365 to retain the Premier League title after Liverpool were held to a goalless draw in the Merseyside Derby on Sunday.

Liverpool had the better chances at Goodison Park, with Mohamed Salah missing the best of them, but they were frustrated by their local rivals as they dropped points for the fourth time in six games.

City had trailed by 7 points in January, but now lead the table by one point with both having nine games left to play.

A goal from Riyad Mahrez gave Pep Guardiola’s side a narrow 1-0 win at Bournemouth on Saturday.

Both clubs now have the luxury of a midweek break, with the title run-in resuming next Saturday when City host Watford at the Etihad Stadium, giving them the opportunity to open up a four-point gap before Burnley visit Anfield on Sunday.

Liverpool have been pushed out to best price 5/2* by Betfred in the title betting.
