Man City v Sunderland total goals over 4.5 at 3/1

Premier League title favourites with Coral Manchester City kick off their 2016/17 campaign against Sunderland this evening at 17:30 BST, in Pep Guardiola and David Moyes’ first official fixtures in charge of their new clubs.

It is from this battle that we have picked out our latest bet of the day, with hugely tempting odds of 3/1 available on the duo battling out a match which produces more than 4.5 goals.

Read on to find out why you should back this brilliant price…

The two teams come into this clash on the back of a number of meetings over the past two seasons that have produced many strikes in each. In fact four of the last five have seen exactly five goals, with the Citizens incidentally winning all of them.

Guardiola factor will see City get goals

Man City are now under the management of Guardiola, so their fans can certainly expect goals this season, starting with Sunderland.

With the likes of Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling, Kevin De Bruyne, David Silva, Yaya Toure, Kelechi Iheanacho and new signings Leroy Sane and Nolito on their books, Guardiola’s new men have the potential to be prolific in front of net like the Spaniard’s former teams Bayern Munich and Barcelona.

City’s most recent fixture in pre-season came up against fellow Premier League side Arsenal, a match which finish 3-2. While, Sunderland have also been involved in a friendly five-goal thriller this summer too, when they beat Dijon by the same scoreline.

So, what are you waiting for punters? Back this brilliant before the 17:30 BST kick-off today for a great chance of seeing your money grow!
