The three-way deadlock atop the Premier League standings looks unlikely to be broken this weekend, with Manchester City, Arsenal and Liverpool all tipped to win their upcoming encounters.
Manchester City top the table by virtue of goal difference only and could extend that slim advantage with a big home win against Middlesbrough on Saturday.
City is on a high after downing West Brom 4-0 last round, then defeating Barcelona 3-1 in the Champions League midweek, and Pep Guardiola’s side is rightly William Hill’s $1.22 favourite to take the three points.
Aitor Karanka’s Middlesbrough will be happy to take a point from the match and are $13 for a win and $6 for the draw.
“He’s one of the best coaches, especially after the win over Barcelona, he’s changing,” Karanka said of Guardiola.
Second-placed Arsenal will have a tougher time against fifth-placed Tottenham, but should still come away with the home win.
In Liverpool, the Reds are the short-money favourites to retain their share of the EPL lead when they host Watford.
Fourth-placed Chelsea are chasing their fifth straight league win when they host Everton at Stamford Bridge and are tipped to continue their run of good form.
Manchester United head to Swansea without manager Jose Mourinho, who was handed a heavy fine and a one-match suspension for an outburst after last week’s match.
And despite losing 2-1 to Fenerbahce in the Europa League during the week, United are paying just $1.65 for a win in Wales, with $5 for a loss and $4 for a draw.
Southampton are tipped to take the points at Hull, at $1.66 for the win.
The 11th round of the Premier League kicks off at 2am Sunday AEDT.
