Salah 5-1 to be named as Player of the Year
BOOKMAKERS are struggling to separate Manchester United and Liverpool in the betting for Saturday’s humdinger at Old Trafford but there is a clear favourite in the market without Manchester City to effectively finish second in this season’s Premier League.
United are 11-10 with Betfred to finish best of the rest with Liverpool at 7-5 with 188Bet and Jose Mourinho reckons second spot is worth the fight.
“It’s important points for the top four, important points for second, which is better than third or fourth,” Mourinho said.
Romelu Lukaku is 3-1 with bet365 to outscore Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah during the 90 minutes in Manchester, with the Egyptian at 12-5 and the tie is available at 5-6.
Salah was named as the winner of the Premier League’s Player of the Month award for February, although he is still expected to play second fiddle to Kevin De Bruyne in the PFA Player of the Year award.
Salah is 5-1 with Betway to claim the honour with classy Citizen De Bruyne at 1-5. City, who are not in action until a trip to Stoke on Monday, also dominate the PFA Young Player of the Year betting with the first three in Betfair’s market.
Raheem Sterling is a 2-5 shot from fellow wing wonder Leroy Sane at 7-4. Gabriel Jesus comes next at 16-1.
Chelsea, 2-5 with Sky Bet not to finish in the Premier League’s top four this season, face an almost must-win clash against bogey side Crystal Palace.
The Eagles have won on their last two visits to Chelsea, who could soon be on the hunt for a new manager.
Antonio Conte has been backed from 9-1 to 2-1 with Paddy Power to replace Unai Emery at Paris St-Germain.
Jose Mourinho and Mauricio Pochettino are 7-1 to be the next coach of the French outfit.
