Manchester City are red hot favourites when they host the League Two side Port Vale

The holders of the trophy Manchester City are red hot favourites when they host the League Two side Port Vale in a match from the third round of the FA Cup. Here’s about to follow our free football betting tips for the weekend.

 

We are pretty sure that Manchester City are not really liking how their season went so far. It’s just the beginning of January and the Cityzens already lost the title race with Liverpool. Even the manager Josep Guardiola admitted this. Now City can only play for the cup competitions they participate in and FA Cup is one of them.

 

Man City will be entering this game on Saturday in a fine mood after beating Everton at the Etihad. Guardiola chose to leave Sergio Aguero on the bench, but his replacement Gabriel Jesus did pretty great and scored both goals for the win. Key players like David Silva, Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva also got some rest from the manager. This means that all of them are probably starting against Port Vale on Saturday.

 

Speaking of Port Vale, they hardly look like a team which can trouble Man City, especially at the Etihad. They are currently in the middle of the standings of the League Two, so there’s nothing much impressive about them. For Port Vale it’s going to be a great excitement to face one of the best teams in the world on Saturday, but they can hardly cause any kind of surprise.

 

In our football betting tips for the weekend we expect to see a classy Manchester City showdown against Port Vale for the FA Cup. Guardiola’s team will make a serious challenge in the competition, especially given the fact that they are already out of the title race. We expect to see some goals in Port Vale’s net.
