Racing Post Football Postcast team ponder Premier League derbies

The Coral-sponsored Racing Post podcast ‘Poscast’ turns its attention to football once again on a Thursday, with another fascinating run-down of all the hottest topics and best bets for the weekend ahead. Just press play below and listen to the latest views from experts Bruce Millington, Mark Langdon and Kevin Pullein, plus our very own John Hill!

Garry Monk next to go on managerial merry-go-round?

Our Postcast hosts cover several burning issues in this week’s exciting edition, including which Premier League boss would come out on top in a tussle. Fancy Big Sam to knock other heavyweight gaffers out of the ring? We do.

There are, of course, more serious topics on the table, as our knowledgeable panel also consider which coach could be next to pack their bags. Having shortened from 33/1 to 2/1 with Coral in under a week, Swansea City’s manager monk could be next for the chop, with punters piling pounds on the Englishman being next coach to leave.

Coral go continental

There is also much to discuss following some marvellous midweek Champions League action, as our Postcast protagonists question how many English clubs will qualify for the last-16. At the moment, despite beating Bayern Munich, Group F bottom dwellers Arsenal are excellent value at 11/8 to progress from their pool.

Weekend wagers

With a roster of magnificent matches ahead, there is also plenty to chew over in regards to the weekend action, as Poscast questions what surprises could be in-store for Premier League supporters.

Arsenal against Everton is Saturday’s only televised English top-tier scrap, and the Gunners can be backed at 31/20 to carry on their great run and win to nil.

Meanwhile, Chelsea face a tough trip to West Ham United, before Sunday is over-run with exciting derby duels. Relegation rivals Sunderland and Newcastle star in the lunchtime kick-off, and there are odds of 8/1 for there to be no goalscorer in this feistiest of Tyne-Wear derby frays.

By contrast, a goal-fest is widely expected in the Manchester derby, as Manchester City visit local foes Manchester United. Our Postcast team run the rule over that Red Devils-hosted fixture, and customers can back a derby draw at 23/10.
