Premier League Matchday 35: Tricky Away Trip For Manchester United
It’s been a busy 24-hours across the country as clubs get deeper into the business end of their repective campaigns. We have highlighted the major moves and price changes below.
Newcastle secured a narrow 1-0 win at Leicester which should dispel any lingering relegation fears. The Toon now have a ten point advantage over Cardiff who occupy the last relegation spot and have drifted to 100/1 from 33/1 to be playing Championship football next season.
City also lost ground in the race to finish highest without the Big Six clubs. Despite still heading that particular battle they have eased to 10/1 from 6/1 with the chasing pack all having games in hand on them.
Tottenham maintained their one hundred percent record at their new stadium with a cosy 4-0 win over already relegated Huddersfield this lunchtime. Spurs made light of the loss of star forward Harry Kane and jump back into third place. They are 1/4 from 1/3 to secure a top four finish and can be backed at 11-4 from 9-4 to miss out.
Paul Pogba scored twice as Manchester United kept their top four hopes alive following a 2-1 home win over West Ham this evening. The Red Devils are 9/4 from 5/2 to secure a top four finish and ease to 1/3 from 2/7 to miss out after moving to within two points of Chelsea.
Salford moved back to the top of the National League after a comfortable 3-0 home win over Maidenhead today. City are 15/8 from 9/4 for the title and automatic promotion and a point clear of 8/11 favourites Orient who play their game in hand away at Sutton later. Solihull are 5/1 from 9/2 and are four points adrift and host relegation threatened Havant this afternoon.
SPFL outfit Hearts proved too strong for Championship 2/1 club Inverness as they ran out comfortable 3-0 winners in today’s Scottish Cup semi final. The Jam Tarts are 2/1 from 3/1 to lift the trophy and will face either Celtic or Aberdeen who play tomorrow in the second semi.
A big day in the Championship with Sheffield United conceding an injury time leveler as they drew 1/1 with Millwall this afternoon. This evening Yorkshire rivals Leeds beat Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 which takes them three points above the Blades and shorten to 1/3 from 4/6 to secure a Top Two finish and automatic promotion to the Premier League. Leeds are 1/5 from 1/3 for promotion and 5/1 from 8/1 to claim the title after moving to within three points of leaders Norwich who host Wigan tomorrow.
