Erling Haaland Seals Vital Win for City as They Close Gap on Arsenal

Manchester City continued their title bid with a hard-fought win against Nottingham Forest at the City Ground.

After destroying Brighton 4-0 on Thursday, City had a quick turnaround ahead of the trip to Nottingham and managed to keep the pressure on title rivals Arsenal.

Josko Gvardiol gave City a first-half lead before Forest spurned at least three presentable chances, but Erling Haaland came off the bench to seal the points for City.

Manchester City celebrated Pep Guardiola’s 300th Premier League game in the dugout with a 2-0 victory, moving them back to within one point of leaders Arsenal, who have played a game more.

Haaland had missed the previous two games through injury and was only named as a substitute for City’s trip to the City Ground. His goal saw him move ahead of Chelsea’s Cole Palmer as the league’s leading scorer with 21 goals. If you love soccer player props, you should continue to back Haaland for the remainder of the season.

 

Arsenal Show Title Mettle, Worth Backing Them for the Crown?

Premier League leaders Arsenal survived a second-half comeback from Tottenham to stay at the top and beat their north London rivals, thanks to goals from Bukayo Saka and Kai Havertz

The Gunners are aiming to end their 20-year wait for a league title and extended their lead in first place to four points by winning the North London Derby.

The win over Spurs has improved Arsenal’s goal difference to +57, which is significantly more than Man City’s total of +48. This means Pep Guardiola’s side cannot rely on having a superior goal difference and will have to finish on a higher points total to claim the league title.

Consider adding Arsenal to your soccer picks this week. Mikel Arteta is confident his team will make City sweat all the way to the finish line after emerging unscathed from arguably their toughest remaining fixture.

 

Liverpool Draw Leaves Title Hopes in Tatters

Liverpool showed fight with a rotated side but dropped more points by drawing 2-2 with West Ham after leading.

While the media did concede Liverpool had improved from their Merseyside Derby defeat, there was plenty of commentary on the Reds’ flat start to the match.

On a more positive note, Luis Diaz came in for praise from several in the national press, with the Colombian once again the Reds’ brightest spark in attack.

Their hopes of any sort of title challenge now rest on both of their rivals slipping up and, from the reactions of the players after their recent results, it is clear they don’t see that as a likely scenario.

Liverpool will host Tottenham next Sunday and are the heavy favorites at -200 odds to win.

 

 

 

Burnley Earns Crucial Point vs Man United in Relegation Fight

Manchester United could muster only a point against Burnley on Saturday after substitute Zeki Amdouni scored a late penalty to rescue a 1-1 draw for the relegation-threatened side.

The draw was a blow to United’s hopes of a European qualifying spot, as they sit six points behind fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur, who have two games in hand.

For Burnley, the point earned against the Red Devils is crucial in the relegation race. They are now sitting 19th in the standings, just two points behind the first salvation spot.

 

 

Questions Of The Day

 

Will Erik ten Hag remain with Man United next season?


Erik ten Hag remains safe as Manchester United manager until the end of the season, with Sir Jim Ratcliffe having no intent to remove the Dutchman despite the increased pressure on him. However, we expect him to be sacked or leave at the end of this campaign.
