City travel to Wigan tonight to face a side they haven’t lost to in their last five Premier League contests.
Roberto Mancini’s side ran out 1-0 winners in this fixture least season with Edin Dzeko securing three points at the DW Stadium and the Bosnian striker is 7/2 to get the first goal of the game with Paddy Power.
City remain unbeaten this season after Sunday’s 0-0 draw away to Chelsea but have drawn four of their last six Premier League away games and are 4/7 to pick up the winning thread again against an injury-ravaged Wigan side.
Ivan Ramis and Shaun Maloney are out for Wigan after picking up knocks in the 3-2 home win against Reading joining James McArthur, Gary Caldwell, Antolin Alacaraz and Albert Crusat on the treatment table.
Carlos Tevez and Yaya Toure were on hand to give City a 2-0 win over the Latics in the 2010/11 season and the odds of either a 1-0 or 2-0 win for the visitors being repeated is 13/2 with Paddy Power while under 2.5 goals is a 6/5 chance.
The Blues went in at the break 1-0 up in both games and Paddy Power bet 13/5 that City lead 1-0 at half-time again while you can get 4/9 that they score first.
Tevez has been City’s top marksman in this fixture with four goals in five Premier League games and is 3/1 to get the first goal of the game and 15/8 to score first for his side.
The Latics have the unenviable record of conceding the most penalties to date in the top tier with spot kicks from Everton, Stoke and Chelsea being converted against them while keeper Al Habsi turned away Javier Hernandez's effort for Manchester United.
Paddy Power bet 13/8 that a penalty is awarded in tonight’s game with City at 7/2 to convert it and 15/2 that a spot-kick will be missed.
Roberto Martinez’s side are 5/1 to end the Blue half of Manchester’s unbeaten run this season while the draw is chalked up at 3/1 in Paddy Power’s online betting.
