Expert football pundit and analyst Andy Gray joins the Paddy Power Blog to give his insight into today’s Premier League action as Manchester City try to close the gap on league leaders Manchester United while Chelsea, Spurs and Liverpool chase European places.
Tottenham v Manchester City, Live SS1, Sunday, 1.30pm
I know a lot of people will be tempted by the draw but if Gareth Bale and Jermain Defoe start for Spurs – they can take all three points. Andre Villas-Boas’ side have had 10 days and can come into this game raring to go and how important it is they don’t fall away in the league now. I’ll take Tottenham to win at 2/1 and by a one-goal margin that’s trading at 7/2 with Paddy Power.
Liverpool v Chelsea, Live Sky Sports 1, Sunday, 4pm
This is a tough game to call. Liverpool will need to show that they are improving and try to beat a top 4 side like Chelsea. The Blues know they have a toughy run-in and won’t want to lose this game. They’ll be difficult to beat. A low-scoring draw for me and maybe 1-1 at 11/2 but I think both teams will score at 8/13. If Luis Suarez scores the last goal in this match, we will refund all losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Correct Score & Scorecast singles on the match. (T&C’s apply)
