Manchester City have been in flying form in recent weeks and will be looking to maintain this in order to capitalize should Liverpool begin to drop points. This still looks very unlikely as punters maintain the support on Liverpool to finally land the Premier league title, using offers available at online casino. They are the overwhelming favourites to end the two year reign of Manchester City with a 14 point lead and a game in hand.
Manchester City on the other hand have been dropping points, having picked up 47 from a possible 66. This includes 15 wins, two draws and five losses. As expected they still lead the way in goal difference and have scored an incredible 62 goals to date. Since the shock 3-2 away loss to Wolves, they have also found their form and are on a five game winning run.
This run started with a 2-0 home victory over high flying Sheffield United. Aguero opened the scoring in the opening stages of the second half, before Kevin De Bruyne sealed the victory. It was a very one-sided game, as Sheffield United failed to even produce a shot on target. City then welcomed Everton to the City of Manchester Stadium. The visitors have been much improved under new manager Carlo Ancelotti and provided a real threat to City.
It was another solid performance by Manchester City as they held 66% of the possession and produced 16 shots in total. Gabriel Jesus wrapped up the three points, as he scored twice in the opening period of the second half. Richarlison got one back after 71 minutes, with the game finishing 2-1 to City. A much deserved three points.
City then picked up two consecutive cup game victories. This first was a 4-1 home victory against Port Vale in the third round of the FA cup. Following this, they beat rivals Manchester United in the first leg of their semi-final clash in the Football league cup. This saw them win 3-1 at Old Trafford, with Bernardo Silva opening the scoring with a stunning strike. They are now overwhelming favourites to progress through to the final.
Manchester City then followed this up with a stunning 6-1 away victory against Aston Villa. This was a hugely dominant performance, with Villa only able to produce one shot on target in the match, coming via a penalty in injury time. Aguero was the difference as he netted a hat-trick on the way to breaking two Premier league records. The first record broken, saw him surpass Thierry Henry as the highest-scoring overseas striker in Premier league history. He also scored his 12th hat-trick, which meant he broke Alan Shearer’s long standing record for the most in the competition. An incredible achievement for one of the greatest strikers in the history of the game.
