The beginning of the new season of the most highly-anticipated Football League on the planet was long awaited, but is finally here – the first games of the 2016/2017 Premier League season are here.
They will begin on August 13th with a game involving holders Leicester, but we have lots of other great games to watch. One of them is the one between Manchester City and Sunderland.
English Premier League Betting Previews, Odds And Tips – Man City v Sunderland
This is the game which marks Guardiola’s debut in English football and will surely be closely watched by millions of fans worldwide. Manchester City want to start the season with a win and end the season 1st, after a rather disappointing 4th place last season.
The team made some top signings, like Stones, Nolito or Gundogan, who join an already stellar team. Under the guidance of a top-class coach like Guardiola, they will surely be a title challenger this year.
Unfortunately for them, Sunderland are at the exact opposite of the spectrum. They have only just avoided relegation in the last two seasons, finishing 17th last time, only 2 points above Newcastle.
Their new manager, David Moyes, hasn’t had success in quite some time and doesn’t have lots of experience managing relegation-threatened clubs. Bookies see the Black Cats as favorites to drop this year – will the former Man United manager change their fate?
As hard as it is to put a prediction in place for the first game of the year, we back Manchester City to win this game, and even win at a difference of 2 or 3 goals.
They looked better in training, and although Guardiola didn’t have time to change their style completely, the sheer talent of the squad should be enough to put them through.
Sunderland are gearing up for what will probably be a long and disappointing season, meaning that they won’t expect too much from their trip to Manchester. Home victory for the Citizens.
