City 1-3 to sign Walker following Alves snub

Manchester City are 1-3 favourites to sign Kyle Walker after missing out on target Dani Alves, who surprisingly snubbed a reunion with former boss Pep Guardiola and instead signed for Paris St-Germain.

Guardiola released right-backs Bacary Sagna and Pablo Zabaleta following the end of the last campaign and will be desperate for reinforcements.

Spurs are fully aware of that and are said to be asking for a transfer fee in the region of £50m for the England international. Hills rate Walker 9-4 to still be a Tottenham player at the end of the summer transfer window.

Tottenham could potentially spend some of the Walker money on Ross Barkley from Everton. Betway have cut Spurs from 10-11 to
8-11 to sign the midfielder before the transfer window closes.

Crystal Palace have signed Chelsea's 22-year-old midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek on loan until the end of the season.

Leicester v Liverpool

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Both teams have scored in four of the last six meetings
Expert verdict
There are likely to be goals in this clash with both sides conceding nine goals from their opening five league games. It was honours even last season with Leicester winning 3-1 at home and the Reds winning 4-1 at Anfield, and something similar could be on the cards in this contest. Both teams have scored in four of the last six meetings and there have been three goals or more in five of the last eight league contests. Even with Sadio Mane suspended Liverpool should give the Foxes a serious test. However, in the home ranks, Jamie Vardy will be desperate for a run at this dodgy Liverpool rearguard.
