Citizens victory and over 2.5 goals among Man Utd v Man City bets
Coral’s bet of the day for the EFL Cup fourth round Manchester derby duel is a show-stopper, if we do say so ourselves. So, take our top Wednesday tip of the Sky Blues to beat the Red Devils and over 2.5 goals in the game, from our enviable array of Man Utd v Man City bets!
Lucky punters can pinch a 7/2 price for Pep Guardiola’s guys to come out on top and over 2.5 goals scored at Old Trafford, so act quickly before everyone else cottons on.
Read on for reasons why this is our pick of all the incredible EFL Cup odds on offer on October 26th…
Mourinho’s Red Devils in disarray
Jose Mourinho’s embarrassing return to Stamford Bridge could not have come at a worse time, as the Portuguese must now prepare his Man Utd men to meet City.
As far as recent history goes, this is not a fantastic fixture for United, as the Citizens have lost only two of their last eight Manchester derbies.
Guardiola’s side will be expecting to progress ahead of a badly organised Old Trafford outfit, having already defeated and dominated their neighbours once this season.
There were over three goals scored in that fierce contest, and there have been more than 2.5 notched in six of the last nine battles between these rowdy rivals.
While, both United and City have looked shaky at the back of late, each conceding five strikes across their past two outings in all competitions.
A series of errors from the likes of John Stones and Daley Blind make this rumble look ripe for a few more sloppy rearguard mistakes.
Still, the Sky Blues should have enough in the tank to topple the rickety Red Devils at their lowest ebb, with Sergio Aguero and co at the ready. So, snare our EFL Cup odds now!
