City show title credentials in epic encounter with Wolves

| 16.01.2011

It may just be for 24 hours, but Manchester City’s position at the top of the Premier League should make their rivals take note.

Before the season started many believed that Manchester City would establish themselves as a top four club come May, but few would have said that Roberto Mancini’s side were genuine title contenders.

However, as things stand, the one point lead at the top of the Premier League proves that Man City are ready for a title fight and at 6/1, they offer plenty of value in the Premier League title betting.

Both Arsenal and Chelsea picked up three points but still find themselves two points and seven points respectively off the league leaders.

Arsenal remain at 7/2 to win the Premier League and Chelsea are still massively overpriced at 8/1 to win the Premier League, but Man City, without setting the league alight, continue to find themselves in a position to do battle.

Manchester United play Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane on Sunday an whilst on paper it’s a tie which could potentially end the Red Devils unbeaten run, it’s been 19 games since Spurs beat Man Utd.

At 6/4 to win, Man Utd offer plenty of value in Sunday’s betting, but considering their penchant for drawing games this season, the value may be in the draw which is priced at 9/4.

Should Man Utd continue their unbeaten run then they will head back to the top of the Premier League and at 4/6 to win the Premier League, the betting market certainly believes Sir Alex Ferguson’s side are the men to beat in the title race.

But Roberto Mancini will be preparing his side for a title run-in and it could be an exciting time in Manchester come May.

A £25 stake on Manchester City winning the title would return £175. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
