Bookmaker announces they are paying out for Manchester City to win the Premier League

Betfred pays per Manchester By win the league by halfway through the season.

Pep Guardiola’s team is currently on an incredible winning streak with nine games and can go nine points ahead at the top of the table with a win against Brentford on Wednesday night.

And after watching Liverpool fall to a 1-0 loss to Leicester City, many are tipping City to lift a fourth Premier League title under Guardiola.

Betfred head honcho Fred Done reckons the title race is finished and dusty and announced that he is paying out online and in stores at City as champions.

“While we are alive, I will do it,” Done revealed.

We’re going to pay City to win the Premier League. I think it’s all over. They are six points ahead of Liverpool and six points ahead of Chelsea.

“They have scored 17 goals in the last three games. They scored six on Saturday, they scored four against Newcastle, they scored seven against Leeds.

“Plus, in my opinion, they have the current best manager in the world.

“If you support City with me, then go and get paid now online and in my stores. I pay out at City.”

Done has paid out league winners on a number of occasions with mixed results. In 1998, he paid for Manchester United to win the title after being 12 points ahead of Arsenal.

But Arsenal itched back and ended up winning the league by a single point, leading to Done losing £ 500,000.

Sir Alex Ferguson told him he should never pay early again, but Done ignored that advice and he paid back to United in 2012 when they were five points ahead.

United collapsed and City memorably beat their title rivals on goal difference on the final day thanks to Sergio Aguero’s last gasp winner.

Liverpool and Chelsea, the two closest teams to City, play against each other in their next outing.

And Jurgen Klopp has already apologized for losing ground on the champions.

“To top that situation, Chelsea and both of us are playing against each other, so of course we can not get the points,” he said in his post-match press release.

“Yes, I know, sorry. It was not our plan to give City the chance to run away or anything, but if we play like tonight, we do not have to think about catching City.”

City’s final defeat in the league came against Patrick Vieira’s Crystal Palace in October.
