Another packed weekend of Premier League action is almost upon us and perhaps the pick of the bunch comes not over the weekend but on Monday, with Manchester City the visitors to Chelsea as Paddy Power report a free bets offer for the weekend.
With both sides in European action this weekend Roberto Mancini and Andre Villas-Boas will be grateful for the extra few day recuperation, but both will know they face a monumental task on their hands to take all three points.
Paddy Power have been in touch to tell us they will offer a free £100 bet on any weekend football game. £100 on Martin O’ Neils Sunderland side at 10/11 could net you £190! Claim your exclusive £100 free bet here!
Villas-Boas lashed out at the media after his side’s 3-0 win over Valencia on Tuesday, and appeared happy that some of the pressure had been released that had been slowly building up in recent weeks.
While Chelsea have been battling with their form – the Blues have fallen 12 points behind City in the title race – Mancini’s men have been serenely going about their business and appeared to be in cruise control as they blasted their way past Norwich 5-1 last weekend.
Tottenham meanwhile will look to extend their unbeaten Premier League run when they face what many believe will be a true test of their resolve to challenge for the title this season – a winter trip to the Britannia Stadium to take on Stoke.
Harry Redknapp’s men have been in outstanding form and have won their last six, while Stoke demonstrated they can juggle the demands of the Premier League and the Europa League with a solid win against Everton last weekend.
Elsewhere Manchester United should be able to pick up maximum points against Wolves at Old Trafford, while Mikel Arteta goes up against his old club when Arsenal take on Everton.
Newcastle will look to end a three game winless streak against a Norwich side still reeling from their hammering at the hands of City, Liverpool will hope to bring to an end a run of four draws in a row when they take on QPR.
Finally, Swansea take on Fulham at the Liberty Stadium, Bolton square up to Aston Villa, Sunderland go up against, and West Brom face Wigan.
