This Saturday, the cities of Liverpool and Manchester will be at a standstill as the Merseyside and Mancunian derbies highlight the English Premier League weekend:
There can be no tastier starter to the weekend’s action than the 251st Merseyside derby between Everton and Liverpool at Goodison Park. Having an indifferent season which has seen a change of manager at the club, Everton find themselves in 9th place eyeing Leicester City and Burnley above them for 7th spot. Liverpool on the other hand have just come off a massive 3-0 victory against Manchester City in the 1st Leg of their Champion’s League Quarter Final; and will be pushing for a similar result this Saturday to keep the pressure on 2nd place Manchester United. The history is against Everton though, having not beaten the Reds in the League since 2010. Regardless, this derby has never failed to deliver an action-packed clash in the past and expect the same in this early kick off, as the city of Liverpool is literally divided between Red and Blue! Priced at odds of 19/20, Liverpool are favourites for the win; whereas Everton are priced at 3/1 for what would be a massive victory. A stalemate is priced at 32/10. BET LIVE on the Merseyside derby from 1.30pm.
Derby day then fittingly concludes with the Mancunian derby between Manchester City and Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium. With City – aka the noisy neighbours – requiring just 1 more victory to secure their 5th domestic League title, it will be no sweeter for them and their fans to get over their big Champion’s League defeat to Liverpool in midweek by getting that win against United this very weekend! Apart from the obvious bragging rights, Jose Mourinho’s United will be gunning a win to keep the breathing space between them and 3rd place Liverpool in-tact. According to the Gbets Stats Centre, both teams lie on an impressive 80% win form and come into this match with a huge hunger for victory. With the fervent City crowd spurring their Cityzens on to the title and United committed to not taste defeat and hand it to them, expect this derby to be the most emotional yet! Priced at odds of 1/1, City are favourites for a win that would clinch them the title; whereas United are priced at 3/1 for victory. A draw is priced at 11/4. BET LIVE on the Manchester Derby from 6.30pm.

At the other end of the table, the situation is starting to look very precarious for Southampton as they prepare for battle at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday. Sitting in 18th position and preparing for the deadly trio of Arsenal, Chelsea and Manchester City within their last 6 remaining games, the Saints need to pull a rabbit out of the hat to avoid the drop. After suffering a resounding 3-0 defeat at West Ham United last weekend, the Saints need nothing short of a win against the Gunners to give them the confidence for a series of wins to climb out of the relegation zone. As for Arsenal, a home defeat to the hands of relegation-threatened Southampton may well see the demise of manager Arsene Wenger – who when it counts most delivers with a win. Priced at 6/10, the odds suggest Arsenal will see through Saints with a home victory; whereas Southampton are priced at 5/1 for a win. A stalemate is priced at 36/10. BET LIVE on this vital clash from 3.15pm.
