EPL: Foden masterclass keeps Man City in touch with Liverpool

Soccer betting news

A brace from Phil Foden led Manchester City to a 3-1 derby victory on Sunday as they kept pressure on Liverpool in the English Premier League title race.

Pep Guardiola’s men were forced to come from behind after Manchester United took a 1-0 lead into the break thanks to Marcus Rashford’s early strike.

But the home side found its rhythm in the second stanza, with Erling Haaland — who had earlier delivered one of the misses of the season — putting the cherry on the cake with his injury-time sealer.

With that, City again closed the gap on Liverpool to one point, although they may feel aggrieved not to have finished the weekend in top spot.

The day before, Jurgen Klopp’s Reds had been held goalless for 98 minutes until Darwin Nunez struck with the final play of the day to snatch a 1-0 victory over Nottingham Forest at the City Ground.

Those two results mean Arsenal need to beat Sheffield United on Monday night to keep touch with the leading pair.

Man City remain -120.48 title favourites with the top EPL betting sites, while Liverpool (+175) and Arsenal (+400) are the only other teams with any support in the market.

In the race for European qualification, fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur claimed a 3-1 win over Crystal Palace to put pressure on fourth-placed Aston Villa, who responded with a 3-2 win against Luton Town.

Soccer bookmakers have Villa pegged at -149.25 to clinch the final Champions League spot, with Spurs offering +110 to pinch it.
