Former Manchester City boss Kevin Keegan thinks the outcome of Monday’s Manchester derby will determine the destination of the Premier League trophy (United 4/9, City 7/4 – Premier League Outright with bet365).
City will head into the clash at Eastlands three points behind the table-topping Red Devils but with a superior goal difference and victory would see them leapfrog their bitter rivals and take top spot (City 11/10, United 12/5, draw 5/2 – Match Prices with bet365).
They then have to play Newcastle United at the Sports Direct Arena before welcoming Queens Park Rangers to the Etihad Stadium on the final day of the season.
United will host Swansea following the derby clash and face a tricky trip to Sunderland’s Stadium of Light to conclude proceedings on May 13.
Keegan, who was in charge at City between 2001 and 2005, feels nothing less than three points will do for his old side next Monday and has backed them to go on and win the title if they do manage to take care of Sir Alex Ferguson’s men.
“City must win the game. If they win it, they’re the favourites,” he told BBC Radio Manchester. “I think they will go to Newcastle, tough as it will be, and if they need that result to win the league, they will get that result.”
However, the former Newcastle boss still feels that United are in the driving seat as they already have the points on the board, adding: “United are still slight favourites because a draw or a win at the Etihad and it’s over.”
