The last two weeks of the season and Liverpool and Manchester City cannot afford to slip up in their fantastic battle for the title
Manchester City v Leicester City
This match takes place on Bank Holiday after the rest of the fixtures and with City entering the weekend tip to toe with Liverpool they will feel they need to win their last two remaining games to lift another title. City of course are prohibitive 1/8 favourites to win this game but Leicester could cause them problems, assuming they are defensively solid enough in a low block to be able to use Vardy and their young wide players on the counter to hurt City.
The odds available on Leicester, a top ten team with a much more suitable strategy under Rodgers, are eye-opening. 28/1 on the away win and 19/2 on the draw with BetVictor! I think its worth taking a chance on the marginal upset and back the draw at 19/2. I think Leicester will score, at least.
Newcastle v Liverpool
Newcastle have two wins and a draw in the last month to climb well clear of the relegation zone now on 42 points. Of course we should expect Liverpool, who have lost only once all season, to win this game but at 4/11 they too are prohibitively priced. Newcastle have only scored 36 goals in 36 games and the recently prolific Perez is now injured. Liverpool, with Van Dijk imperious, Alisson at keeper and the young fullbacks so promising have only conceded 20 goals in 36 games. Liverpool are 11/10 with BetVictor to win to nil, aprice i would be happy to suggest should be odds on.
West Ham v Southampton
West Ham recorded a notable win 1-0 at Tottenham but consistency is a problem, which is why theyare outside the top ten. Southampton ensured their safety in their 3-3 draw at home to Bournemouth with their much improved form in the second half of the season under Hassenhuttl very notable. He uses the wide players much more effectively than they previously were at the club and this gives them much more attacking threat. As a result the 2/1 available on Southampton away here looks attractive.
