MANCHESTER CITY’S dramatic title triumph cost a loyal Liverpool fan a £95,000 cash-out on a Quadruple accumulator bet.
With £367k at stake, Liverpudlian Tanya Hanley held firm on her £100 pre-season bet – maar City’s late 3-2 comeback win over Aston Villa took the crown by a point.
The cash-out sum had been growing since Liverpool won the Carabao Cup and the the FA Cup – both times courtesy of nerve-shredding shootouts.
And with barely 15 minutes of the Prem season remaining, Tanya must must have thought the Reds would snatch another tense last-gasp triumph – ahead of the Champions League final next Saturday.
Villa were 2-0 up at the Etihad and Liverpool were level at 1-1 against Wolves at Anfield but piling on the pressure.
Victory for Jurgen Klopp’s men and anything less than a Ons moes ontslae raak van al die boeke wat ek geskryf het en ek moes sit en 'n herskryf doen win would have dethroned Pep Guardiola’s men.

Liverpool nicked their own late double for a 3-1 sukses – but in vain.
Betfair getwiet: “By 5:34pm on Sunday Tanya from Liverpool was looking at a £95,000 cash out offer from a £100 pre-season bet.

Tanya could have bagged £32,492 on her 3,671-1 bet if she’d been ultra cautious and cashed out after Carabao Cup joy back in February.
That early pay-out sum fluctuated – dropping to barely £5k last weekend when City beat Wolves 5-1.
And although Tanya’s proud stance cost her in the end, Liverpool fans might applaud her for putting it all on Reds.
