England: Premier League
Match start: 15:15 (GMT+1)
Only two rounds are left and the first half of the current EPL will finish. Let us remind you that according to the results of 17 past match days the team of Josep Guardiola not only became the only leader of the champions’ race but has also practically destroyed the possible fight intrigue for new English football crown:
Manchester City – 49, MU – 38, Chelsea – 35, Tottenham – 31, Liverpool – 31 …
As you see the distance between two best teams of the season now is 11 points and if we bear in mind the 15 matches winning streak of the leader the Citizens are not going to slow down.
Manchester United (the head coach José Mourinho)
So, the hosts of the Old Trafford have to fight against Chelsea, Tottenham and Liverpool for the new vice-champion’s title. But to tell the truth, there is no difference between the teams that have taken the 2nd and the 3rd lines at the modern EPL. Both teams are getting the direct berths into the main net of another Champions league tournament.
After home defeat that had happened last Sunday during very important Mancunian Derby (1:2) the team of José Mourinho had won the next match against stubborn Bournemouth (1:0).
West Bromwich (the head coach Alan Pardew)
Recent appointment of one of the most popular British coaches Alan Scott Pardew for the post of a head coach was really very quick. During the previous round the Throstles were fighting at Anfield against Liverpool but had managed to stay strong and had taken with them one point: they have taken from the team of Jurgen Klopp two pints (0:0).
And now the team of Alan Pardew is facing very serious home battle against the main challenger for the vice-champion’s title.
More than 4 years have gone since the time Sir Alexander Ferguson had left the post of a head coach of the famous football club. United had managed to experience incredible fall from the very top of English Olympus and during the previous seasons even were losing to rivals that are lower in class.
But now José Mourinho had managed to bring his players back into the game. And that is why the fans of United are waiting only for a victory.
West Bromwich– 6.50, draw – 4.00, MU – 1.60;
Our tip: MU to win - odds 1.63 Pinnacle
