Premier League betting preview: Manchester City v Manchester United
Manchester United face Manchester City tonight in a game that will have a huge bearing on the destination of this season’s Premier League title.
If league leaders United win the Etihad Stadium clash they will move six points clear of City with just two games to play, while if the home side emerge victorious they themselves will move to the top of the table on goal difference. A draw would leave United three points ahead but with an inferior goal difference.
City striker Mario Balotelli is free to play having completed a three-game ban, while defender Micah Richards is also available following a knee injury.
United have no new injury doubts but are still without long-term absentees Darren Fletcher, Anderson and Nemanja Vidic.
Bet365 make City 6/5 favourites to win the match, with United offered at 9/4. The draw is available at 12/5.
United forward Wayne Rooney is 13/2 favourite to score the first goal, followed by City strike pair Carlos Tevez and Sergio Aguero at 7/1.
