When Manchester United play Manchester City at Old Trafford on Wednesday Liverpool supporters will be wanting the home team to win. United are desperate for points to finish in the top four and qualify for the Champions League but a win in the derby could hand Liverpool the title. If City slip up Liverpool will be on track for the Premier League and Champions League double. There could be an all-England final of the Champions League for the first time since 2009 and TOTTENHAM are 4/1 with Coral to be the champions of Europe for the first time.
United were abysmal at Everton and the 4-0 defeat could have been a lot worse. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer apologised to the away fans at the end of the game for the abject effort of his players. A reaction in the Manchester derby will be good news for Liverpool who are trying to win the title for the first time in 29 years. If City drop points Liverpool will take advantage by beating Huddersfield at home on Friday. The visitors are relegated and surely cannot avoid a heavy defeat. LIVERPOOL are 11/8 with Ladbrokes to win the Premier League for the first time.
It’s the final day of the jumps season on Saturday and the new season begins the following week. Richard Johnson and Paul Nicholls are the champion jockey and champion trainer and Tiger Roll must be the horse of the year. The owners are teasing about the horse’s participation but a third Grand National in a row must be the target and TIGER ROLL is 8/1 with Coral to win the race again. The feature race of the finale at Sandown is the bet365 Gold Cup (which for years was called the Whitbread). The 2016 winner, THE YOUNG MASTER, is 9/1 with Ladbrokes for a second win. It all starts again a week on Saturday.
