City to ease to Tyneside triumph


Manchester City can increase the pressure on Premier League leaders Liverpool by beating Newcastle United at St James’ Park on Tuesday.

Pep Guardiola’s team will be only one point behind the Reds, who play Leicester on Wednesday, if they can triumph on Tyneside, which seems virtually guaranteed as they have won their last eight matches in all competitions, scoring 33 goals in the process.

Man City to win 2-0 at Newcastle 23/4

They have kept clean sheets in their last six games and beat Rafa Benitez’s team 2-1 on home soil in September.

Newcastle have lost eight of their 12 home league matches this term and, although Benitez will attempt to keep it tight, City have the quality to ease to a routine victory.

Manchester United can make it nine victories in a row in all competitions since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho when Burnley visit Old Trafford.

The Clarets have taken 10 points from their last four league games but were outclassed by Manchester City in the FA Cup on Saturday.

For all their problems in the first half of the campaign, United have only lost once at Old Trafford in the league and will eventually overpower Sean Dyche’s team. A draw at half time and United win at full time is available at 3/1.

Fulham to keep a clean sheet @ 33/20

It is crunch time for Fulham, who are seven points away from safety, with Brighton’s visit to Craven Cottage surely a must-win encounter for Claudio Ranieri’s team.

There has been no improvement in Fulham’s results since the Italian succeeded Slavisa Jokanovic and they have only picked up one victory and six points from their last 10 games.

Brighton are poor away from home but don’t concede many goals so a narrow 1-0 victory for Fulham may be the best bet at 13/2.

Iwobi to score the first goal @ 8/1

For all their injury problems and defensive inadequacies, Arsenal will be too strong for a Cardiff team that have only picked up one point from their last four games, while Everton can secure three much-needed points by beating a Huddersfield team that will be managed by Jan Siewert for the first time. Under 1.5 goals in the game is available at 2/1.

Wolves and West Ham are two of the most inconsistent teams in the top-flight so a draw at 5/2 looks likely.
