Edin Dzeko First Goalscorer City v Villa

Premier League legend Matt Le Tissier looks to the Manchester City v Aston Villa first goalscorer market for a value bet on tonight’s live Premier League match
At 7/2 a £10 bet would return £45

Manchester City can go two points clear at the top of the Premier League with victory over Aston Villa at the Etihad tonight. Liverpool’s draw at Crystal Palace on Monday leaves City in control with a home game against West Ham Utd on the final day of the season.

Matt Le Tissier tips: “Villa haven’t won away since New Year’s Day and I don’t see them giving Manchester City much trouble at the Etihad on Wednesday. The Blues are short enough at 2/11 for the home win which will put them top of the league so I’ll look to first goalscorer market for a bit of value.

Sergio Aguerro is sidelined after limping off at Everton at the weekend but Edin Dzeko has kept the scoreboard ticking in his previous the Argetine’s previous absences. Dzeko has scored the opener in 6 of his 21 starts and in current form is worth a bet at Ladbrokes 7/2 to score first.”

City need four points from two home games to secure the title and are overwhelming favourite to collect three from the visit of Villa. The visitors have lost the last six Premier League games at the Etihad and have nothing left to play for after ensuring survival with a 3-1 win against Hull on Saturday.
