Premier League: Gunnarsson faces yellow strife…

The Premier League continues tonight, with the highlight being the televised game between hosts Manchester City and Cardiff.

City are in a tight title race with Liverpool, and will have noted the Reds late winner on Sunday with interest. They now need to win to regain top spot in the league, and surely will do so against relegation threatened Cardiff. However, the win may not be as easy as the respective league positions suggest given City’s main striker Sergio Aguero is injured. And the prices on City scorers are so tight.

Cardiff are fighting for their Premier League lives, especially so given the controversial nature of their defeat by Chelsea over the weekend.

Manager Neil Warnock was outspoken (unusually…not!) in criticising the quality of the refereeing, also suggesting the smaller teams never get the breaks. It will be interesting to see how his team reacts if things go against them tonight.

With this in mind, we’re going to take a punt on Cardiff midfielder Aron Gunnarsson being booked. Two of his four bookings have come against top six sides and he will play in the middle of the park, just where the talented City players will be attempting cute one touch football.

Recommendation: Gunnarsson to be booked, 1 pt, at 9/2, SkyBet
