Premier League Betting Tips – 4-5 February
After the surprise 1-0 defeat away at Everton in the week, Manchester City will be desperate to return to winning ways and maintain their lead in the race for the Premier League title.
Manchester City have a 100% record at the Etihad Stadium this season and the visit of Martin Jol’s Fulham side is unlikely to challenge their dominance at Eastlands. Both Yaya and Kolo Toure are still with the Ivory Coast at the African Cup of Nations, whilst Mario Balotelli remains suspended, but Sergio Aguero should feature with the Argentine scoring 10 of his 14 goals in Manchester.
Fulham fans are unlikely to be happy with the £4m departure of striker Bobby Zamora who was inspired last time out in the 5-2 victory over Newcastle and the Cottagers have won just once on the road all season.
Manchester City have won by 2 goals or more in 9 of the 11 victories at Etihad Stadium this season and Roberto Mancini’s side should get back to winning ways on Saturday.
Manchester City -1 Asian Handicap @1.50
Two sides that have struggled to keep clean sheets all season meet at Carrow Road on Saturday with Bolton Wanderers next up for the newly promoted side.
Norwich have impressed on their return to the Premier League and currently reside in 10th place, 11 points ahead of Blackburn in 18th, but the Canaries have managed just one clean sheet all season and strengthening the defence was definitely the focus of manager Paul Lambert who brought in defender Ryan Bennett from Peterborough.
Opponents Bolton have kept just two clean sheets this season, but the arrivals of Marvin Sordell, Ryo Miyaichi and Tim Ream will likely freshen things up for Owen Coyle’s side. Both sides are coached by managers who enjoy an attacking mentality and goals should feature on Saturday.
