The English Premier League title will be decided in the early hours of Monday morning when the latest instalment of the Manchester Derby plays out.

City are hot $1.52 favourites and rightfully so. I think they will take all three points and basically put the title race to bed.

Manchester United, sitting second at the moment but some 14 points back, simply need to win if their slim hopes of winning the title are to remain alive.

I can't see them taking any points off their crosstown rivals, though, especially when they have drawn four of their past five matches.

City have been on a relentless run and have won 21 straight matches in all competitions. They are the form team, they are playing beautiful football and I think it will be simply too much for United to handle.

The only saving grace for United is their 'away' form which currently stands at a club record 21 without defeat.

So while the $1.52 looks awfully tempting, it is short. I am going to shop around for a bit of value and the $2.40 about Man City to keep a clean sheet looks gold!

Pep Guardiola's side has the best defensive record in the league by far, conceding just 17 goals in 27 matches. The Red Devils have now gone three games across all competitions without scoring.

TIPS: Manchester City (Result) @ $1.52 and Manchester City Not to Concede A Goal @ $2.40
