Can Erling Haaland Fire Man City to Title Glory?

Manchester City responded to Arsenal’s big win on Saturday with a thrashing of Wolves to remain in control of their title destiny.

The Citizens will claim an unprecedented fourth successive title if they win their three remaining games, but Pep Guardiola’s side face a tricky away day at Tottenham on May 14.

Additionally, City also faces Fulham and West Ham, both of whom typically sit deeper and possess counter-attacking threats that could breach their high line.

On paper, Arsenal has the easiest run-in with the average position of upcoming opponents ranking around mid-table, including a trip to Man United next weekend.

Erling Haaland scored four times as the reigning champions cruised to a 5-1 victory against Wolves on Saturday. If you love soccer player props, you should continue to back Haaland for the remainder of the season. He is leading the EPL top-scorers race with 25 goals, four more than Chelsea’s Cole Palmer.

 

 

Ipswich Town Bursts into Premier League After 22 Years!

Ipswich Town has been promoted to the Premier League after 22 years out of the top flight.

The Tractor Boys beat Huddersfield 2-0 at Portman Road to secure a second successive promotion, having finished runners-up to Plymouth in League One last season.

Kieran McKenna’s side already had a three-point advantage over third-placed Leeds going into the season’s final game and only needed a draw to secure promotion from the Championship.

Ipswich became the first club since Southampton in 2012 to gain back-to-back promotions from the third tier to the Premier League, while the result sealed Huddersfield’s relegation to League One.

 

 

Arne Slot Inherits Star-Studded Liverpool With Expiring Deals

As Liverpool FC approaches the end of an era with Jurgen Klopp’s impending departure, the club stands on the precipice of a new chapter under Arne Slot’s guidance.

This summer marks not just a change in leadership but pivotal decisions regarding player contracts that could shape the team’s future.

Arne Slot is set to inherit a squad that, while rich in talent, faces uncertainty over the future of several key players.

Netherlands defender Virgil Van Dijk has a year left on his contract and there could well be plenty of upheaval following Klopp’s nine years at the helm of the English giants. Despite interest from other top European clubs, there’s an air of inevitability about Van Dijk staying to embody the new project under Slot.

 

 

As the team’s top earner and a pivotal attacking force, Mo Salah’s situation is perhaps the most complex. His contract, expiring in 2025, presents a financial and strategic problem for the club. The decision to extend, modify, or sell Salah will be an important test for the new management

Darwin Nunez has fuelled speculation about his future after deleting all pictures of him playing for the club from Instagram.

The striker has often shown a lack of clinical edge with no player in Europe’s top five leagues missing more big chances. Despite that, he’s still much loved by Liverpool fans.

 

Ten Hag on the Brink? Man United’s Season in Crisis

Erik ten Hag is under growing pressure as Manchester United manager after Monday night’s dismal 4-0 defeat at Crystal Palace.

The Dutchman maintains he is still the right man to lead the Red Devils, but the rout at Selhurst Park was a new low in a torrid season.

It left United eighth in the standings and facing an uphill battle to secure European football for next season. Ten Hag’s side has won only one of their past eight matches in 90 minutes.

The Red Devils are in transition, with almost all of the squad reportedly up for sale and Ten Hag’s position under review as INEOS chief Sir Jim Ratcliffe takes complete control of the club’s sporting decisions.

United will play Arsenal next weekend in front of their fans and they are priced at +525 according to the latest soccer odds.
