Manchester City, Arsenal and Everton are tasty 13/2 treble for midweek

| 25.03.2014

Just because there’s no Champions League this midweek, it doesn’t mean punters can get great value with Coral.

Back Manchester City to win their derby against United at Old Trafford, Arsenal to beat Swansea and Everton to enjoy a victory at Newcastle United, and receive an enhanced treble price of 13/2.

Manchester United v Manchester City
Visitors City have won four of the last five Manchester derbies in the Premier League, including the infamous 6-1 at Old Trafford in 2011. United must face their neighbours without the player who scored their last winner in this fixture too, Robin van Persie.

Manuel Pellegrini’s men are 6/5 favourites for victory and will unleash midfield powerhouse Yaya Toure on the Red Devils, who are notably weak in the corresponding area. Back the Ivorian to follow up his hat-trick against Fulham by netting anytime here at 7/4.

David Moyes has a defensive crisis on his hands because of injuries and suspension to skipper Nemanja Vidic, so Michael Carrick may have to continue to deputise at centre back. Pile money on Alvaro Negredo or Edin Dzeko to exploit this as both have odds of 6/4 to grab goals.

Arsenal v Swansea
The Swans have won one match at the Emirates, but that was when they had a fully fit Michu in attack. Arsene Wenger’s Gunners have beaten the south Wales side in each of the last three meetings, and start as odds-on 4/9 favourites to bounce back here.

Arsenal have relied on 10 different players to score against Swansea in all competitions since they gained promotion to the Premier League. Garry Monk’s men have no win in eight (league and Europe) since winning the derby with Cardiff City.

Back France striker Olivier Giroud to score first here at 3/1. Czech Republic captain Tomas Rosicky, meanwhile, is 2/1 for a goal anytime after his spectacular and emphatic match winner against Spurs.

Newcastle United v Everton
The Toffees are unbeaten in four against the Toon, and Roberto Martinez’s men start as 5/4 favourites for three points. Romelu Lukaku bagged a brace in the reverse fixture, so take sumptuous odds of 7/1 for him to net a double or better again.

Alan Pardew, who manages hosts Newcastle, is banned from his own stadium after headbutting Hull’s David Meyler. Spaniard Martinez always keeps his Latin temper in check on the touchline, and has got the best out of attacking midfielder Ross Barkley this term.

Young Barkley netted the winner at Goodison Park earlier this season, so odds of 9/4 on another goal against the Magpies look attractive. An Everton win and both teams to score is your best bet at 7/2 as this has happened in four of the last six encounters.
