Cracking Costa and perfect Van Persie in fab 3/1 scorer double

| 17.01.2015

Coral are doing their best to banish the January blues and brighten up your day by offering enticing enhanced odds on two of the Premier League’s most fearsome predators.

The dangerous duo of dominant Diego Costa and rampant Robin van Persie are available at a brilliant 3/1 both to score anytime for giants Chelsea and Manchester United respectively.

Here’s why you should back these proven poachers and potentially make a profit in time for the end of the January sales.

Crafty Costa has hit the ground running since joining Jose Mourinho’s men, and it is no coincidence that the Blues are leading the Premier League with this talented attacker in tow.

Odds-on at 2/5 to win the title, Chelsea boast a frightening array of forward talent, but none offer the potency of Costa, who is by far the Stamford Bridge side’s leading scorer this season.

The Spain star has grabbed 15 Premier League goals so far, meaning he is top marksman in the competition, one ahead of Sergio Aguero and seven ahead of closest clubmate Eden Hazard.

Up next for Costa is a visit to Swansea City, where the 26-year-old is odds-on at 5/6 to be on target anytime or 18/1 to hit a hat-trick again after sinking three past the Swans earlier this term.

With two in his last two league outings, the superstar striker looks great value to embolden the Blues boys, who are odds-on favourites at 4/7 to triumph at the Britannia.

Van Persie, meanwhile, makes up the second part of this prolific pairing as he continues to lead the line for Manchester United and the Netherlands.

The flying Dutchman has netted eight times in the league for the Red Devils this campaign, including crucial goals against Chelsea, Liverpool and Southampton, making him joint top scorer.

Van Persie’s exploits for his country have also continued to be impressive, as the ex-Arsenal forward has bagged two in his last four caps.

With 49 goals in 94 outings for the Clockwork Orange, Van Persie will surely go down in history as one of his country’s greatest strikers, but still has much to do in the present at Old Trafford, where has struck 56 times over two and a half terms.
