Bet 94

94.) Man City v Sunderland - LAY 0-0 @ 22

Difficult to see this one ending 0-0. Man City are in such great form going forward, true they are without Silva for this one but Aguero especially is in fine goalscoring form at the moment. Up against one of the weakest defences in the league it would be a big surprise if they don't score. In addition I think this Sunderland team has got some decent attacking options, Fletcher is a good goalscorer and they have a few set-pieces specialist in their team (Gardner & Larsson) who are capable of producing something out of nothing. In addition Man City is always weaker without Kompany in their defence. Only worry for this bet is that Sunderland line-up really defensively and manage to hold out for a 0-0 draw. But I deem this very unlikely given Man City recent form and attacking threat.

Man City 0-1 Sunderland (+£1.04)

Despite this being a winning bet, I don't think it was such a good one. Sunderland put in a much better defensive performance than I was expecting. O.Shea & Brown were rightly praised for keeping Man City attack quiet. In addition I thought Man City missed the creativity of David Silva, he is a common key component in Man City's best side. However I rightly had concerns about Man City denfence with no Kompany, and Nastasić was also out. But this game could have very easily ended 0-0 and for that reason it was a questionable bet. 2/5
