City 5-6 for 25 points or more from last ten games

It's a sprint rather than a marathon now with just ten matches of the Premier League season remaining as leaders Liverpool look to hold off the challenge of Manchester City heading into a potentially pivotal weekend.

City are red-hot favourites away to Bournemouth and 8-13 for the title, whereas 13-8 shots Liverpool, who are one point clear, have a tricky Merseyside derby against an Everton side who would dearly love to dent the Reds' title ambitions.

Betway are offering a market on how many points will be collected by the title rivals for the remainder of the season - City are 5-6 for at least 25 points from a possible 30 and Liverpool 8-11 for 23 or more.

It's 10-1 with bet365 that goal difference will be needed to separate the sides come the end of the campaign and the most likely outcome is seen as a winning margin of one to three points at 11-10.

It has become a two-horse race over the last week following defeats for third-placed Tottenham, first at Burnley and then at Chelsea on Wednesday, adding pressure before the north London derby against Arsenal.

Spurs are 4-11 for a top-four finish with Manchester United 11-10 to be in the final four. Chelsea are 6-5 and Arsenal 15-8, while the Gunners are 7-2 to end the season above Tottenham with Mauricio Pochettino's men.

Pochettino is also 3-1 with Ladbrokes to be Real Madrid's manager on the opening day of next season.

Remaining fixtures - Liverpool: Everton (a), Burnley (h), Fulham (a), Tottenham (h), Southampton (a), Chelsea (h), Cardiff (a), Huddersfield (h), Newcastle (a), Wolves (h). Manchester City: Bournemouth (a), Watford (h), Fulham (a), Cardiff (h), Crystal Palace (a), Tottenham (h), Man Utd (a), Burnley (a), Leicester (h), Brighton (a).

Key stats
  • Liverpool have lost six of their last eight Champions League away games
Expert verdict
Liverpool begin their Champions League title defence with a return to the scene of one of the four away defeats they suffered on their way to winning last season’s competition. The Reds were beaten 1-0 at the Stadio San Paolo in the group stage last October and, as the Partenopei have lost three times in their last 19 home fixtures in the competition, their run of six defeats in eight UCL away games is a concern. However, they rarely fail to deliver in the final third, netting in all but four of their last 42 competitive matches.
