It’s the final weekend of November before we start to think about Christmas and the usual hectic festive football period where high-earning players really are expected to work for their millions. The tough games continue to come at Man City thick and fast and they could find themselves well off the pace set by Liverpool heading into 2020.
A Closer Look
This is the first game of an important Saturday where Newcastle welcome Man City to St James Park for an early afternoon kick-off that will be shown live on BT Sport from 12.30pm. An ideal way to get your day of betting off and running. With Santa making his final preparations, time is also running out to land a major pay-out from the bookies before the big day.
Rookie of the year
Newcastle have been seen holding their own in the Premier League so far this season and that’s despite being popular in the markets to be relegated back in summer. They won four and drew three of their first dozen games and that was a better effort than last season’s Champions League finalists Tottenham. Not something we ever expected to be saying this year, that’s for sure. The home win is a chunky 18/1 at Ladbrokes and that’s generous. You’ll find the draw trading at 6/1.
Man City have stumbled through the opening few months of their title defence and despite starting the season priced like three titles on the bounce was already in the bag, they are now behind leaders Liverpool and struggling to keep their heads above water. An away win is a must here, but this isn’t an easy place to visit. Man City are 1/6 with Unibet to win and that’s just too short.
