Liverpool were odds-on across the boards until Chelsea’s famous blue bus staged a classic smash and grab last week.
And now the momentum is back with Man City who face Everton on Saturday.
Pelligrini’s men entertain Aston Villa and West Ham at home in their final two matches so this weekend is really the last tricky fence before an easy final furlong.
And I’m backing City to make no mistakes against an Everton side who have just come-up short in the race for a Champions League spot and look a little deflated.
The Toffees have stopped scoring and are making daft mistakes at the back.
That’s not a good combination for the visit of City who are being propelled towards the finish line by the immense Yaya Toure.
City are odds-on for the game so let’s double them up with Spurs who should prove too good for West Ham.
It pained me to type that but the Hammers look clueless under Sam Allardyce and simply don’t look capable of winning by punting long balls up to a hopelessly isolated Andy Carroll.
Big Sam has even been taking-off wingers recently to cut the supply line to Carroll completely.
No wonder the East London natives are restless and defeat by Spurs could spark ugly protests on Saturday at the Boleyn.
The Man City and Spurs double pays 5/2 which looks worth a go.
Hindsight is a wonderful thing in this punting game and Real Madrid’s odds of 4/1 to beat Bayern Munich on Tuesday look like one of those rare gifts from the bookies.
Atletico were also priced up at 5/2 to beat Chelsea so Cordobes hats-off to anyone who had the 16/1 Madrid double.
