All the best offers from Paddy Power ahead of City's clash with the Black Cats...
City 1/6 to win
Manchester City are unbeaten in their last nine home Barclays Premier League ties against Sunderland and are 1/6 to keep that run going on Wednesday night (7.45pm).
The Citizens face a Capital One Cup final on March 2 against Gus Poyet’s side and will be eager to put down a marker as Manuel Pellegrini looks for his first piece of silverware since taking over last summer.
Correct score markets
City ran out convincing 3-0 winners in this fixture last season with Aleksandr Kolorav, Sergio Aguero and James Milner among the goals. A repeat of that scoreline is 7/1 with Paddy Power in the mid-week fixture.
The home side to be 1-0 up at half time and finish 3-0 winners at full time is a 14/1 shot with Paddy Power.
Pellegrini may need to juggle his squad his side face into high-octane FA Cup and Champions League games against Chelsea and Barcelona after the visit of the Black Cats.
Serbian defender Kolarov has scored in his last two league home games against the Mackems and can be backed at 16/1 each-way with Paddy Power in the first goalscorer market or 9/2 to hit the net at anytime over the 90 minutes.
Alvaro Negredo (9) and Edin Dzeko (7) have a combined 16 of City’s 68 Premier League goals this season and are joint 3/1 favourites to net the opener against Sunderland.
4/9 City to be leading Half Time
City have opened the scoring in almost three quarters of their games this term and have led at half time in four of their last five games at the Etihad. Paddy Power make them 4/9 to be leading at the break against the Mackems.
Correct score and Handicap Betting
The Citizens have scored a minimum of three goals in their last four home games against Wednesday night’s visitors (W3, D1) and are 3/1 with Paddy Power to score exactly three goals against Gus Poyet’s side. They can also be backed with the online firm at 13/10 to win (-2) in the online firm’s handicap betting.
The Citizens are looking for their 12th win in 13 games at home this term and are 1/6 in Paddy Power’s win-draw-win market against a Sunderland side who are unbeaten (W3, D3) in their last six games on the road.
