Manchester City managed to beat Tottenham yesterday to regain top spot of the Premier League, and now it’s the turn of Liverpool to respond. They face Cardiff in Wales later this afternoon.
Cardiff manager Neil Warnock has been talking about avoiding a thrashing, by that is surely misdirection. His team won at Brighton midweek to keep alive their chances of staying up, and they are tricky to beat at home.
That said, Liverpool are on a roll. They were impressive in beating Porto in the Champions League quarterfinal midweek and are looking to win their ninth match in a row in all competitions.
We think that Liverpool will have to much for even a hyped-up Cardiff side, and although they will have tricky situations to face they should win. We’ll go for a 2-0 away win.
Earlier in the day Manchester United travel to Everton hoping to take advantage to Spurs’ defeat on Saturday to move into the top four and a potential Champions League place.
Everton are a tricky team to predict. No sooner than they were starting to look like a good side when they lost at home to Fulham – being unable to break down the worst defence in the league. They now face a United team that has had its own defensive issues – conceding in their last 10 games.
That said, United have been playing at a better level, PSG and Barcelona aren’t easy, after all. And we think they will have too much for the home team. In a potentially tight game, we’ll go for Marcus Rashford to score first at Paddy Power’s enhanced 7/1.
Cardiff/Liverpool: Liverpool to win 2-0, 1 pt, at 6/1, bet365
