The record books will say that Manchester City have won their last three matches in the Premier League to establish an 8 point lead at the top of the table. The worst case scenario is that they will be five points clear of United if they lose the Manchester derby on Sunday. However, in those three games City have scored late winners and they looked very average against West Ham in their most recent fixture. That should provide some encouragement for United who won at Arsenal over the weekend.
In beating West Ham City have now equalled the record for successive wins in the Premier League. Nothing would delight their fans more than to create a new record at Old Trafford which would give them bragging rights in Manchester for a long time. City are 1/8 to win the Premier League and up to 9/1 to not lose a match in the division this season. However, their luck could run out in the biggest match of the season so far which MANCHESTER UNITED can win at 12/5 with William Hill.
Tiger Woods could be backed at 80/1 to win the US Masters before the Hero World Challenge this week. In his first competitive event for almost a year he showed that he could be as good as ever. Eventually an average third round cost him dear but he was competitive and that augurs well for anyone who backed him at fancy prices to win another major. The sport has a history of champions having a last hurrah so WOODS is not a forlorn hope to win the 2018 US Masters at 28/1 with Ladbrokes.
Sadly England are now just that in the 2nd Test against Australia. At the time of writing the Aussies were as low as 1/7 to win the day-nighter in Adelaide over five days, though the match could be done and dusted well before the final day. The will he or won’t issue over Ben Stokes well be irrelevant soon because even England’s best player can’t help his side win the five match series from two down. The nightmare scenario of a five-nil drubbing now could become a reality.
