A Better Day For The Champions-Elect
It’s not been a good week for Manchester City players. Not only did they lose 3-0 in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final with Liverpool the transport they took to their place of work was placed under siege. Highly paid footballers are human beings and deserve a secure environment in which to travel and ply their trade. It’s debatable if the journey to Anfield affected their performance but City were not themselves in the first half. Things can get better today because if MANCHESTER CITY beat Manchester United they are Premier League champions and that outcome is 4/5 with William Hill.
Liverpool have had a great season and played wonderful football with Mo Salah a revelation and in the running to be player of the year. There’s nothing wrong with passionate fans who love their team but there are boundaries that should not be crossed. The club have been in the news this week for their performance against City but sadly also for events outside the ground. I’m not sure what kind of welcome the team bus will get at Goodison Park today before the derby match with Everton. Liverpool are vying for second place while Everton are becalmed in mid-table safety. On all known form LIVERPOOL are the team to back at 21/20 with Unibet.
The greatest race in the world takes place next Saturday but one week before the Grand National there’s plenty to get excited about with the racing today. There are six meetings in total in Britain and Ireland including lucrative televised fixture on the All-Weather at Kempton and over jumps at Kelso. There are four handicaps from the Borders track on ITV4 and the richest race is the chase at 3pm. CHIC LANE ran well in the cross-country chase at Cheltenham and that form makes the horse the one to back at Kelso today at 6/1 with Ladbrokes.
