21st Nov 2021 | Premier League
Pep's boys remain hugely impressive, but they aren't the goal gluttons of some recent seasons. They have now scored 13 fewer than Liverpool.
Chelsea and Liverpool put down markers on Saturday, so Manchester City will be keen to show why they still cling onto odds-on favouritism for the title with every major bookie.
Everton should be welcome opponens after five winless matches and still missing Calvert-Lewin, Doucoure, Gomes and now Holgate. That’s the spine missing for Benitez, who will surely pack 10 or 11 men behind the ball.
This is one reason why City to win with under 3.5 goals in the match looks the play at 11/10 with Bet365. The champions have only scored more than two in the league once in their last eight outings.
With De Bruyne out, and Grealish and Foden doubts, routine victory looks more likely than a thrashing again.
