Manchester City are a best price of 1/8 with Betfred to win the Premier League title after leaving it late to beat West Ham 2-1 and claim their 13th consecutive league win, setting things up nicely for Sunday’s Manchester derby.
City will equal Arsenal’s record of 14 successive Premier League victories if they beat their old rivals at Old Trafford, while United will cut the gap at the top to 5 points if they win on Sunday to follow on from their 3-1 defeat of Arsenal.
The two Manchester clubs vied for the title in 2011/12, when City came from eight points back with six games remaining to take the trophy from United’s grasp. United are 12/1 with BetVictor to turn the tables on their neighbours this season, while their run of four league wins in a row means they are now 5/4 with William Hill in the betting without City.
Something has to give next weekend, as United have won all seven home games and Man City all seven away, while United’s last home league defeat was in this fixture in the early stages of last season. City, who will rest key players for the midweek Champions League trip to Ukraine, are 23/20 with BetVictor, while United are a 13/5 chance with their cheerleaders Betfred.
