The EPL title could be decided on Sunday when the leaders Manchester City face their biggest rivals and 2nd place in the standings Manchester United. Despite losing a match for the 1st time this season against Shakhtar in Champions League, the Citizens are not the team to bet against. They have found the secret for winning games and playing at their highest level in every match, having the most skillful squad and the best bench in the top 5 European leagues. The question is how Jose Mourinho can stop Man City to win this game without the brain from the midfield, Paul Pogba, banned for this clash. The Red Devils are forced to attack and win the three points looking to close the gap on their rivals, being 8 points behind them. The Citizens haven’t been at their best in recent weeks, but they should have enough to return home with the three points. Best pick for the match: Manchester City to win at +120 with Pinnacle.

Liverpool vs. Everton (Premier League – Round 16)

Liverpool have been in excellent form in recent weeks, being unbeaten in their last 9 games in all competitions, scoring 32 goals in the process. Mohamed Salah is leading the EPL top scorer chart with 12 goals netted in 15 rounds which is huge for a winger. Liverpool have won by 2 goals more in 4 of their last 6 home Premier League games with Everton, being undefeated on their turf since 1999. Everton have failed to win any of their last 15 away EPL fixtures. Liverpool are clinical this term having a huge conversation rate. They scored 23 goals in the 2017-18 Champions League group stage, more than any other English side in the history of the competition. The Reds are yet to lose a game at Anfield this season and they enter this match full of confidence trying to blow their rivals away once again. Best pick for the match: Liverpool to win and over 2.5 goals in the match at -133 with Ladbrokes.

Villarreal vs. Barcelona (La Liga – Round 15)

If Barcelona aren’t going to win the La Liga title this season it will be a huge surprise. They are 5 points clear at the top of the table with their biggest rivals Real Madrid sitting 8 points behind them. If we are looking at their mutual encounters against Villarreal, Barcelona are unbeaten since 2008. This game is expected to be one of the most entertaining games of the round in La Liga. After their 2 back-to-back defeats in the top-flight league, Villarreal are looking to come back to winning ways and secure their spot in top 6. The Catalans will be without one of their best defenders Samuel Umtiti who suffered a serious injury against Celta Vigo last weekend. We expect a thrilling match, a high scoring affair with Barcelona having all the necessary weapons to win the three points and secure their leading position. Best pick for the match: Barcelona to win and over 2.5 goals at +110 with Coral.
