Manchester City pulled 11 Points clear in the Premier League with victory of Manchester United last weekend and, though they will surely slip up at some point, they could again be a joy to watch as they take on fellow attack-minded Tottenham on Saturday. We’ve a tip for that match, as well as Leicester vs Crystal Palace, and Sunday’s match between West Brom and Manchester United.
Leicester vs Crystal Palace (Saturday 12.15, Sky Sports)
Betting Guide: Leicester 10/11, Draw 11/4, Crystal Palace 7/2
Crystal Palace are unbeaten in 6 games, but the fact they’ve yet to score away from home this season has to be a worry for them against a Leicester side that has won its last 4 games, despite conceding goals in three of those games. Leicester have also won 3 of the last 4 games between the two teams, including the last two renewals of this fixture – and they look a fair bet at a shade of odds-on.

Manchester City vs Tottenham (Saturday 5.30, BT Sports)
Betting Guide: Man City 4/7, Draw 7/2, Tottenham 5/1
It’s Tottenham who have enjoyed the upper-hand in the last four matches between the two teams, winning three and drawing one, but it’s City who are riding highest at the moment. However, hopefully, this will be one of the most entertaining games of the season whatever the result. 10 of the last 12 games between the two teams have produced at least 3 goals, whilst 8 of the last 12 games have produced at least four goals. More than 2.5 goals is odds-on, so I’m happy to take odds-against for more than 3.5 goals.
More Than 3.5 Goals @ 149/100
West Brom vs Manchester United (Sunday 2.15, Sky Sports)
Betting Guide: West Brom 6/1, Draw 3/1, Man United 8/13
Manchester United haven’t fared as well as expected against West Brom in the last four seasons, losing twice to them and drawing once with them at Old Trafford. However, they have won on two of their last four visits to West Brom, including a 2-0 win last season. West Brom have also failed to score in their last three games, but have recorded 5 home draws this season. However, they’ve also lost at home to both Manchester City and Chelsea and, with 4 of the last 5 games between West Brom and Man United won to nil, it may be Man United’s turn to achieve that result.
