Liverpool v Man City Prediction (1.Mar)

Sergio Aguero, Man City

Liverpool v Manchester City
Sunday, 12:00 UK Time

+ Liverpool make the long-trip back from their disappointments in Turkey on Thursday, where they lost to Besiktas on penalties and it's going to be very hard for Brendan Rodgers team to recover both mentally and physically from that Europa League defeat.
+ The Reds have lost on both visits to Manchester at Old Trafford (0-3) and the Etihad (1-3) this term and at Anfield, drawn with Arsenal (2-2) and lost to Chelsea (1-2).
+ Liverpool have won just 2 of the last 12 Premier League matches against Man City (W2 D6 L4).
+ Reds' skipper Steven Gerrard is still sidelined.
+ Man City have won their last 2 Premier League games, banging in 9 goals in the process.
+ The Citizens have lost just once (at home to Arsenal 0-2) in their last 17 top flight matches.
+ With Chelsea playing in the cup final this weekend, City will be looking to cut the gap at the top to 2 points.
+ The champions have the best away record in the division (8-4-1) and they have scored in every game on the road.
+ Early in the season Man City won 3-1 against Liverpool at the Ethiad.
+ The Citizens' midfield powerhouse Yaya Toure is available now after he was suspended in midweek. He was sorely missed when away at the Africa Cup of Nations and it is no co-incidence that City have picked up since his return.

- Liverpool have won 7 of their last 11 games against the Citizens on Merseyside.

Chelsea v Tottenham: League Cup Final could go either way!

Eden Hazard

Bet365 customers can look forward to watching the likes of Hazard, Eriksen, Costa, Kane and Fabregas live from their PC's and Mobile devices on Sunday in the Capital One Cup Final at Wembley Stadium! Tottenham star Christian Eriksen secured a place in the final against Chelsea, scoring both goals in the semi-final second leg against Sheffield United.

Spurs did actually beat Chelsea 5-3 on New Year's Day and also came from behind to beat the Blues in 2008's League Cup Final after extra time – so this Final could go either way!

Chelsea are clear favourites despite this but Harry Kane has been on fire for Spurs recently and is 13/2 (7.50) with bet365 to score first goal and give Tottenham that vital edge – it's worth noting that he bagged 2 of the 5 goals from their win on 1st January. Costa is a shorter 10/3 (4.33) to score first.

Tottenham are 4/1 (5.00) outsiders to win in 90 minutes, 20/1 (21.00) to win in Extra Time like they did in 2008’ or even 14/1 (15.00) to win on Penalties.

Chelsea are 4/6 (1.66) favourites to win inside 90 minutes, 9/1 (10.00) to win in Extra Time or 14/1 (15.00) to win on Penalties.

Don't forget that this match is covered by the bet365 Bore Draw Money Back Offer: Have a pre-match Correct Score, Half Time/Full Time or Scorecast bet on the game, and if the match finishes 0-0 bet365 will refund all losing bets on these markets!

Michael Owen vs The £10,000,000 Colossus!

Michael Owen, Colossus Bets

Michael Owen, England football legend, gives his Premier League, League Cup Final & Serie A predictions to take down the world's biggest sports jackpot - THE £10M COLOSSUS!

The opening game in this week’s Colossus doesn’t concern the top sides, even if Swansea are doing exceptionally well this season and come here fresh from doing the double over Man Utd. Of course, they will miss Bony but their team play a good brand of football, and if there is to be a winner in their match at Burnley, then I favour Swansea 2-1. They beat Burnley 1-0 at home earlier in the campaign. But Burnley have showed this season that, for all that they are third bottom and inconsistent, they don’t lie down even against the best teams in this league – getting draws at Chelsea and City from losing positions – and they have goals in them. So my main fancies in this game are 1-1 and Any Other Draw (AOD).

Stoke and Hull played out a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture back in August and that score line plays a part in my perm here. But I just favour Stoke in this, even if Hull are on a bit of a mini-run at the moment after a draw at the Etihad and home wins over Villa and QPR. I must admit that I didn’t see Stoke winning at Villa last week after four-goal drubbings in their previous two matches, but they sneaked a late win there and can do the same here, either Stoke 2-1 or 1-0 to go alongside my back-up score line of 1-1. Hull have only won two games on the road this season.

I know that we have the Capital One Cup final but arguably the biggest match of the weekend is Liverpool v Man City. Liverpool will have to do it the hard way after playing in Turkey in the Europa League on Thursday night, and this is a Sunday midday kick-off, but I am sure Brendan Rogers will have their heads right for this. And they come here as probably the form team in the Premier League after continuing their fine recent run of form with a 2-0 win at Southampton. Man City showed what they can do when beating Newcastle 5-0 last week, and they did beat Liverpool 3-1 earlier in the season, but they do blow hot and cold and their record at Anfield in recent years isn’t the best. Liverpool’s quick turnaround after the match against Besiktas is a worry, so I will include 1-1, but I take the Reds to win this 2-1 or 1-0.

Like City, Arsenal were another top Premier League to lose at home in the Champions League in midweek, and that 3-1 loss to Monaco now leaves them with a mountain to climb there. But their league form is pretty impressive, especially against teams below the top tier, and they are a hard side to beat at the Emirates – they have won eight from 12 there, with just one loss – and Everton seemingly can’t get it together in the league. They have only won six games, were again disappointing in a 2-2 home draw to Leicester last week, and had the added distraction of a Europa League game on Thursday. I go Arsenal 2-0 or 2-1.

Tottenham were another side in action in Europe on Thursday, and that isn’t the ideal preparation for a Cup final. And they generally haven’t played well after their Europa League games this season. But football is about having the right mindset as much as anything else, and I’m sure Spurs won’t be thinking about that when they run out. They will probably be focusing more on their amazing 5-3 defeat of Chelsea on New Year’s Day, and trying to forget their 3-0 loss at the Bridge! I don’t expect such a goal-fest here though and, even without Matic, I take Mourinho to guide his Chelsea side to yet more silverware courtesy of a 2-1 or 1-0 scoreline.

Roma v Juventus is a top of the table Serie A clash. Roma are unbeaten at home in 12 league games this season, while Juve have only lost one match in 24 and are running away with Serie A. So it is tricky to call. I’m happy to sit on the fence and go 1-1 but, given Juve’s dominance in the league – and they beat Roma 3-2 earlier in the season – I will add in a 2-1 away win.

We are looking a game down the line when we try and assess Aston Villa v West Brom next Tuesday. If we get this far in the Colossus, then I want the most likely result in my favour, and I reckon that is 1-1, though many may say a drab 0-0 is very much on the cards between these two sides!

£82k winning from a free bet!

winning from a free bet
A chinese restaurant owner in Dunstable has started 2015 with a bang after winning £81,611.20 from a free bet with Ladbrokes.

With Chinese New Year celebrations finishing less than a week ago the football fan may have already made 2015 one to remember after using £110 worth of free bets on the bold 13-fold accumulator.

Wins for Juventus and Barcelona were predicted by the Dragon City Chinese restaurant chief while high-flyers in the Championship, League One and Conference also made the cut to land the bet on a night when 7 of the top eight in English football's second tier won, and only one game in 19 in the country ended in a draw.

Speaking to Ladbrokes the customer in his 50s who wished to remain anonymous, said: "This is the first time I've won big; all I did is picked the teams I like. I'm going to celebrate by going to Hong Kong, maybe I'll try my luck at the races there. I definitely think I won thanks to the New Year luck!"

He also chuckled while adding: "Maybe I'll win like this again soon, or even twice!"
