Benitez 3-1 to get old rival Mourinho sacked

RAFA BENITEZ is 3-1 with Hills to be the man to get Jose Mourinho the boot from Manchester United.

The bet would pay out if Mourinho is sacked by United during the forthcoming international break having lost or drawn to Benitez’s Newcastle side in their encounter at Old Trafford on Saturday.

There’s little love lost between the pair following their days at Chelsea and Liverpool and they are 8-1 with Hills not to shake hands at the end of the game.

Benitez often got the better of Mourinho in his time at Liverpool and the Magpies are 8-1 to pile the pressure on the Portuguese gaffer with a much-prized victory.

Mourinho is the general 8-11 favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave his post.

Liverpool are involved in the biggest game of the weekend when they host Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday.

It’s a game the Reds have had plenty of success in recently and they will hope that continues.

Jurgen Klopp’s men haven’t lost at home since April 2017 and they are 7-1 with bet365 to finish this season unbeaten at home.

The game pits first against second and Betway go 8-13 that City are still top dogs on Monday with Liverpool 7-5 shots.

Third-placed Chelsea are 33-1 to have leapfrogged the pair following their trip to Southampton tomorrow.

Key stats
  • Newport are unbeaten in 12 matches.
Expert verdict
Michael Flynn’s Newport headed into the playoffs as the fourth tier’s form side, securing seventh spot by finishing the season ten games unbeaten. Tranmere will know all too well about County’s disciplined defensive, having failed to score in both league meetings with them and, even with James Norwood leading the line, they look vulnerable.
