2016/17 Premier League

Manchester City play host to relegation threatened Queens Park Rangers in a hugely important Premier League clash on Sunday 10th May, find out how the football betting offers at William Hill can benefit your Man City v QPR bets.
Manchester City will be doing their utmost to finish second after losing out to Chelsea in the Premier League title race. Manuel Pellegrini's side are level on points with third-placed Arsenal, though the Gunners have a game in hand, so there can be no more slip-ups if they are to clinch that runner-up spot. The Citizens have won 3 consecutive games and will be hoping to continue that form when they welcome QPR to the Etihad.
Queens Park Rangers are in a precarious position, but will fight on while there is a mathematical posibility of them staying up. Hoops are 7 points from safety with this trip to Manchester being the first of 3 remaining games, so a defeat on Sunday would consign the club to relegation.
Saturday's match will be shown live on Sky Sports 1 at 13.30 and will be eagerly watched by both casual and professional gamblers looking to make a profit on what should be an interesting encounter. One way that you can increase your chances of winning long term is to take advantage of the free bet offers available at William Hill, to add a level of protection to your Man City v QPR bets.
Bore Draw Insurance
The last two games between these sides have ended level, having played out a 2-2 draw in the reverse fixture at Loftus Road back in November, with a 0-0 at that venue when the sides met in January 2013.
Neither side is likely to want to settle for a point, but if Man City v QPR does finish 0-0 and ruin your bet, William Hill will refund all losing Correct Score and Double Result (HT/FT) bets on the match as a Free Bet equal to your stake, capped at a maximum of £50.
Goalscorer 2nd Chance
With 5 goals in his last 4 games, Sergio Aguero is back in form and will be the go to selection for most punters in the First Goalscorer market. The Argentine has 22 Premier League goals to his name this season, has opened the scoring in each of his last 4 matches and has a great record against QPR with 3 goals scored in 4 appearances against Sunday's opponents.
Those looking for a more generous payout will probably be drawn to David Silva who has scored 11 times from midfield this season, while Franck Lampard and James Milner are likely to be drafted in with Yaya Toure absent and Samir Nasri along with Jesus Navas doubtful.
The visitors have relied heavily on Charlie Austin to supply their goals this season, but his impressive tally of 17 may still not have been enough to save them from relegation. Austin played a blinder in the 2-2 at Loftus Road and could easily have ended the game with a hat-trick after having 2 goals questionably chalked off by the officials.
Leroy Fer was on the score-sheet away to Liverpool last week and has 5 goals this season, while other viable options in the QPR midfield include Matty Phillips and Joey Barton, both of which have found the net in recent weeks.
Whoever you plump for in the First Goalscorer market, use William Hill for the added protection of a free bet refund, should your losing selection then go on to score the second goal of the game. Goalscorer 2nd Chance entitles qualifying customers to a free bet refund of up to £50.
