Back Man Utd, Aston Villa and Man City in enhanced 9/2 treble

| 03.05.2014

Coral offer an enhanced 9/2 on wins for Manchester United against Sunderland, Aston Villa at home to Hull and Manchester City at Everton.

Manchester United v Sunderland
Ryan Giggs got off to the best possible start to his management career following United’s 4-0 win over Norwich City last time out but perhaps the result gave the impression of a much better performance.

It was very much the same kind of performance of recent weeks in the first-half with the Reds having to wait until a 41st minute penalty from Wayne Rooney to take the lead.

The introduction of Juan Mata made the real difference as they were then able to cruise to such a comfortable victory.

Giggs welcomes in form Sunderland to Old Trafford for his second game in charge, with the Black Cats finally managing to get out of the bottom three following their 4-0 victory over relegation rivals Cardiff.

Gus Poyet’s side of course managed to pick up four points from recent trips to the Etihad and Stamford Bridge but they may come unstuck against a United side eager to impress in the post-Moyes era.

The sides have met three times this season with the score finishing 2-1 in all three clashes. The same scoreline can be backed at 8/1 for the home side here.

Aston Villa v Hull City
When Aston Villa beat Chelsea 1-0 back in February they had just reached 34 points and may have felt that they were well on their way to safety and another season in the Premier League.

A run of five defeats and a draw from their last six games though has dragged Villa right back into the relegation picture and they not sit just three points above the bottom three.

One more win will be enough to secure their safety but with away games at Manchester City and Tottenham to come, Paul Lambert must know that his side need to take advantage of a Hull side who may well have one eye on the FA Cup Final.

Villa do possess a good record against Hull with seven wins and one draw from their eight meetings with Hull yet to score against them in the Premier League.
Goals may be hard to come by so 1-0 or 2-0 wins for the home side could be good bets at 6/1 and 11/1 respectively.

Everton v Manchester City
Last weekend’s results proved crucial for both club’s season ambitions with the two sides suffering different fortunes.

Everton’s Champions League aspirations took a huge blow following their 2-0 defeat to Southampton whilst rivals Arsenal secured a 3-0 win over Newcastle to move four points clear of the Merseysiders.

For Man City though it was a weekend they certainly enjoyed with Liverpool’s 2-0 loss to Chelsea meaning that Manuel Pellegrini’s side are back in with a great chance of winning the Premier League title.

City are three points behind Liverpool although they have a game in hand and are currently eight goals better off in goal difference, which the title could well be decided on if they can gain three points here, although they have won just once from their last fifteen visits to Goodison Park.

The title challengers were certainly boosted by the return of Yaya Toure against Crystal Palace and the Ivory Coast international moved on to 19 league goals in that match.

The 30-year-old will become just the second midfielder to reach 20 Premier League goals in a season and he is 13/8 to reach that milestone here and 11/2 to score first.
