Manchester City are taking on Manchester United this weekend and it will provide a great picture of the team that is likely to finish in the top four this season.
City are the favourites to qualify for the Champions League next season with odds of 3/10. United, who have been in terrible form over the last few months, at backed at a distant 4/1. Even though City themselves have been in a poor run of form as far as the Premier League is concerned, they can be comfortable knowing that they have the home advantage in this game.
United have already missed out on the top four in recent times, but City cannot afford to do the same at this stage. The club will be bringing in Pep Guardiola – one of the renowned managers in the world – next season and the former Barcelona manager will struggle to attract players if the club finds itself in the Europa league next season. Pellegrini is on his way out, but he is determined to do a great job in the remainder of the campaign. He has already led the club to Capital One Cup success, which is the second of his City regime, and the club has qualified for the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the first time in their history.
Aguero is rated at 6/5 to score at any time in the game. These are great odds given that the strikerhas been in fine form over the last 10 games. Aguero, however, has not scored since his two goals against Aston Villa in the 4-0 win a few weeks ago. Even though City win this game, it is unlikely to improve chances of winning the title. After only nine points behind table leaders Leicester City, the important objective for the club will now be to finish in the top four.
