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).

Aston Villa v Derby

Home WinDrawAway Win
Key stats
  • Tammy Abraham has scored in five of his last seven starts for Aston Villa.
Expert verdict
Aston Villa have lost just two of their last 15 matches and valid excuses can be made for both defeats. Dean Smith made wholesale changes with the playoffs in mind for their 2-1 loss to champions Norwich on the final day, while they lost the second leg of semi-final at West Brom despite having 73 per cent possession and winning the shot count 24 to ten. They are full of confidence and should be more determined than ever after last season’s playoff final heartbreak.
