Roberto Mancini - Freebets

Roberto Mancini is looking for his first victory at the Stadium of Light and Manchester City are 4/7 to win with Ladbrokes who will give a £50 free bet to new customers. Online bookmakers give new customers free bets which they can get for placing a bet on Sunderland v Manchester City on New Years Day.



Manchester City have come a long way since they featured in the first ever Premier League game at the Stadium of light in August 1997. Manchester City lost 3-1 that evening and featured three foreign imports, Dutch defender Gerard Wiekens, Russian midfielder Georgi Kinkladze and German striker Uwe Rossler. They were decent players in a team of decent footballers and the result was not great shock against Peter Reid’s newly promoted Sunderland side. With City’s assemblage of mega-millionaire footballing talent harvested from the around the world, a similar result on Sunday would send shock waves all the way to Abu Dhabi from where Sheikh Mansour is pouring his oil millions into establishing City as the best team in Europe.

Its not been the most enjoyable Christmas for manager Roberto Mancini who has seen an eight point lead at the top of the Premier League disappear and grateful for a superior goal difference to keep them ahead of rivals Manchester United after the Boxing Day fixtures. City dropped two valuable points in the 0-0 draw at West Brom in their last game. In stark contrast to the free-scoring exploits before December, Mancini’s superstars have now failed to score more than one goal in three of the last four games.

Mancini will hope his team will be less wasteful than on last season’s visit to Sunderland, when Yaya Toure and Carlos Tevez managed to squander three gilt-edged chances in the first half before Darren Bent to nick the points with a last minute winner for the home side. City are 4/7 at Ladbrokes to take three points from Wearside where defeat is unthinkable with Manchester United likely overtake City on Saturday.

Sunderland will be pumped for this game, there is a fresh spirit in the camp since the arrival of Martin O’Neill and taking the scalp of Manchester City would see Sunderland spirits soaring sky-high into the New Year. Mancini is looking for his first win at the Stadium of Light and hoping Sunderland won’t prove to be his hoodoo. The home side is generally available at 6/1 to win, including Boylesports who are best priced at 1/3 for the draw at 10/3.
