All the best odds from Paddy Power ahead of Sunday's Premier League clash...
Manuel Pellegrini will lift his second piece of silverware on English soil if Manchester City beat West Ham on Sunday afternoon (3pm).
City to win 4-0
The Citizens are two points clear of Liverpool and have one hand on the trophy after the 4-0 midweek win at the Etihad Stadium against Aston Villa. The home side are 9/1 with Paddy Power to repeat that scoreline against the Hammers in the final game of the season.
City’s home form this season has yielded 49 points and has been the bedrock of their title charge with only one defeat (v Chelsea) in 18 home games.
City 3-0 or exactly 3 goals
The Citizens' attacking style has seen them reach 100 league goals in this Premier League campaign and the Blues could match Chelsea's record of 103. Paddy Power make City 7/1 to beat West Ham 3-0 on Sunday or 3/1 to score exactly three goals against the Londoners.
When asked whether he was confident of winning the title, Pellegrini said: "We are top of the table now so we should expect to win. It was strange before that we were favourites, but trailed Liverpool and Chelsea despite having games in hand."
Another brace from Edin Dzeko set City on their way last Wednesday as he racked up his fifth goal in three league games. The Bosnian striker is 5/2 with Paddy Power to get the opener against West Ham or 15/8 to score first for his side as they look to lift their second Premier League crown in three years.
Dzeko to score first and City to run out 4-0 winners is 22/1 in Paddy Power’s Scorecast betting.
Stevan Jovetic chipped also in with a sweet strike from the edge of the area to put City three up after an assist from Yaya Toure.
The Ivorian's late goal saw him become the first central midfielder since Frank Lampard to net 20 Premier League goals and he's 7/2 to get the first of the game against Sam Allardyce's side or 11/4 to score first.
West Ham have not beaten the Citizens in their last seven league meetings (nine in all competitions) and the Hammers lost 6-0 at the Etihad in the League Cup last January.
Spanish striker Alvaro Negredo scored first in both those League Cup games as part of his five-goal haul in the 9-0 aggregate win and he is 13/5 to get the first goal of the game.
The last two league fixtures between the sides have seen City run out 2-1 winners at home at the end of last season and 3-1 winners in London last October.
Both outcomes are 9/1 in Paddy Power’s correct-score betting .
City kept a clean sheet against Aston Villa and are 5/6 to do so again or evens to win to nil on Sunday with the online bookmaker.
