2016/17 Premier League
Published: 14:28 22/12/2011
Manchester City cruised to a comfortable 3-0 victory over a patched up Stoke City last night to stay two points clear at the top of the Premier League as the clubs get set for a very busy Xmas holiday period.
City manager Roberto Mancini believes that the club will need 90 points if they are to lift the Premier League title this season and bookmakers are now offering very short odds on the Premier League Trophy moving the short distance across Manchester from Old Trafford to Eastlands come May 2012.
Ladbrokes currently offer the best odds for Manchester City to win the Premier League at odds of 8/13 whilst Irish bookie Boylesports offer the top price about United retaining the title at odds of 11/5 . Alex Ferguson will take much from United's two quick away wins in London but the injury crisis at Old Trafford continues to get worse and their squad will be severely tested in the next few weeks.
The Premier League is looking very much like a two horse race now with Spurs in third place currently eight points behind Manchester City albeit with tonight's home game against Chelsea in hand.
Manchester City already have 44 points from seventeen games and a vastly superior goal difference to their rivals . With the strongest squad in the Premier League by some distance the title is surely theirs to lose this season and up coming fixtures against West Bromwich Albion and Sunderland will hold no fears for Roberto Mancini's team.
There is a goal threat from every position in the current Manchester City line up and they have accumulated an amazing 53 goals in their opening seventeen games and bookmaker William Hill now make Man City odds on at 8/11 to score a record 104 or more Premier League goals this season.
Why not have a free bet on Man City to win the Premier League and/or get the record Premier League goals tally and celebrate every time they score, which is quite often !
