Manchester United and City vie for top spot in round four of EPL

Fri, Sep 8, 2:21pm by Staff Writer

There is a better than good chance that no matter what happens in the fourth round of the Premier League this weekend, a Manchester Club will finish in top spot.

Current leader Manchester United’s impressive run continued last week with a 2-0 victory over Leicester, while cross-town rival Manchester City downed Bournemouth 2-1 to remain win away from the top spot.

While United are favourites to maintain their undefeated record this season, Stoke at home will be no easy beats.

United have won 12 wins from 18 matches since Stoke was promoted to the Premier League in 2008, but have not beat the Potters away from home in the post-Alex Ferguson era.

While William Hill is paying $1.50 for a United win, the $7 for a Stoke victory will be tempting for many punters.

City has a chance of leapfrogging Liverpool with a home win over the Reds.

Liverpool will be brimming with confidence after a 4-0 win over Arsenal, but a trip to Manchester is always daunting.

The $4 on offer for a Liverpool win could be a wise investment give the side’s form this season but at $1.50, City’s depth and class is expected to give them the points.

Huddersfield’s unexpected early season run is tipped to end this week, but after Aaron Mooy’s strong performance for the Socceroos against Thailand this week Australian fans will be hoping for another upset.

Newly-promoted Huddersfield is unbeaten in its first EPL season and sits among the title hopes in third place.

Its match at West Ham will offer the first big test for Mooy’s side, but given few expected them to have won a game so far, anything is possible.

Huddersfield is on a tempting $4.40 to continue its run, with West ham on $1.83 and $3.50 for a draw.

Defending champion Chelsea appears to have recovered from its shock season-opening loss to Burnley and is chasing a third straight win when it travels to Leicester.

2016 champion Leicester, meanwhile, is coming off a demoralising loss to Manchester United after two opening wins.

With club-record signing Alvaro Morata working well with his new team, Chelsea is the $1.80 to take the points, with $4.25 for Leicester and $3.60 for a draw.

Tottenham has a chance to get its season back on track with an away win against Everton, after just one victory so far this season.

Spurs have not lost to the Toffees in nine matches dating back to December 2012, while Everton’s star player Wayne Rooney is in doubt after being charged with drink driving last week.

Tottenham is the favourite to edge Everton, paying $2.10 for a win against $3.50 for a loss and $3.40 for a draw.

Arsenal could claim its second win of the season when it host Bournemouth.

The Gunners have lost two matches so far putting its hopes of a return to the Champions League even further out of reach.

Arsenal is on $1.36 for a win against $8 for a loss at home, with $5 for a draw.

Suggested Bet: Take City and Liverpool to draw: $3.75
