Can United do it again?

It seems a very long time ago that Manchester United overturned a two-goal deficit from the first leg of their Champions League tie with Paris Saint-Germain to progress to the quarter-finals.

They’ve got a similar assignment tonight, as they go into the second-leg of the Carabao Cup semi-final against Manchester City having lost the first-leg 3-1 – so they must win by at least two goals to force a penalty shootout.

City are 1/3 favourites to win in the ninety and progress to the final, where they will meet Aston Villa, while United are 15/2 – and the Draw is 5/1.

Speaking of United…

Deadline Day is fast approaching, and it feels like news of Bruno Fernandes‘ transfer to Manchester United has been on-and-off for weeks.

Well, it looks like it may finally happen! Latest reports – and plenty of them – claim the Sporting midfielder will be in Manchester today to complete a medical and officially sign for the club.

Liverpool – more of the same?

Liverpool, 22 wins out of 23 and 16 points clear in the Premier League title race (procession), visit West Ham this evening, looking for a little more of the same, thank you.

The Hammers lie some 44 points adrift of Klopp’s record-chasers in 17th, a yawning chasm indeed. The Reds are unsurprisingly very skinny indeed for tonight’s match, but we’ve been consulting the crystal wotsits and Everton old boy David Moyes could have a trick or two up his sleeve.

He’d love it, just love it, if West Ham were the ones to derail the Scousers’ title express – the unbeaten bit anyway – and 8/1 is a sporting price for exactly that to happen.

Who will fill the last semi-final spot?

You’ll have to be quick, but there’s still time to bet in-play on the Australian Open quarter-final between Rafael Nadal and Dominic Thiem.

The winner will face Alexander Zverev in the semi-final, alongside a mouth-watering clash between reigning champ Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer.

Latest Outright odds – Djokovic 2/5, Nadal 4/1, Zverev 12/1, Federer 12/1, Thiem 14/1
