Liverpool and Ireland goal scoring great John Aldridge drew a blank in his first bet of the season last weekend - but he is back for more this week and has set his sights on the biggest game of the Premier League season so far.

Aldo backed Liverpool debutant Christian Benteke to score on his debut for the Reds at Stoke last weekend, but that bet failed to deliver a first win of the season for Dublin's Temple Street Children's hospital.

Our man has put his €50 punt that has been kindly donated by our friends at Paddy Power on the Man City v Chelsea showdown on Sunday, with Aldo backing Jose Mourinho's side to grind out a result.

"These games against the top sides tend to end in draws in the first few weeks of a season," Aldo says.

"If anyone knows how to get a result in a game like this, when his team are not at their best, it is Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho and while the home side deserve to be seen as favourites, I expect the champions get a draw against City."

Here is Aldo's best for this week:

€50 on Manchester City and Chelsea to draw at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday at 12/5 (potential returns €170.00)
