Manchester City Can Win Premier League Showdown
For a season and a half Manchester City have been the best team in the Premier League. In winning the title in 2017/18 they scored 22 more goals than Liverpool and won 25 more points. Despite improvements in personal at the back and in goal Liverpool have not closed the gap. Granted they are unbeaten after 20 matches but City are still in striking distance despite three defeats in their last five matches. There is no need to hype this meeting because it is the most important match of the season to date. It’s a must win for City and a draw would be a great result for Liverpool.
City have played five games against the top six this season and these matches have produced nine goals. The reverse fixture at Anfield was goalless but the visitors missed a penalty late on. However, the 40 matches involving both sides this season have produced 102 goals but only 24 of those have been scored by the opposition. Before losing to Crystal Palace at the Eithad City won all nine matches at home scoring 33 goals and conceding six. Liverpool have dropped just two points in 10 fixtures on the road but MANCHESTER CITY are tipped at 11/10.
It’s the first day of the Tournament of Champions which brings together the winners on the US PGA Tour from last season. The key attribute for success is power and on the long track with wide fairways driving distance is more important than driving accuracy. Francesco Molinari won the Open and five points at the Ryder Cup but his game is based on accuracy. JASON DAY is a powerhouse so he can outscore Molinari over 18 holes in the first round today at 5/6 with bet365.
The All-Weather track at Chelmsford City offers decent prize money for racing on an artificial surface during the winter. The course is now attracting quality horses some of which then move on to Dubai for their lucrative meetings leading up to the Dubai World Cup. The richest race of the day is the Class 2 handicap over five furlongs at 5.55. VERNE CASTLE has won on the course five times and ran respectably at Lingfield last time out so is the nap at 4/1 with Ladbrokes.
