New Year football specials
To help you ease into the New Year and enjoy the 2016 celebrations, Coral are offering customers a host of sensational special offers from the footballing world. Enjoy!
One of the class of 92 appointed as manager of a Premier League club in 2016
With Louis van Gaal under immense pressure in the Old Trafford hotseat and Ryan Giggs seemingly his natural successor to that Manchester United throne, odds of 7/4 for any of the class of 92 to be a permanent Premier League manager in 2016 are very tempting.
Of course, this doesn’t just mean the Welshman, with these incredible odds also including Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt, David Beckham, Gary Neville and his brother Phillip Neville.
The Neville siblings are currently in work with Valencia and could grace England’s top tier in 2016, while the rest of their former Man Utd teammates have previously had coaching experience, so watch this space!
Any player scores 30 or more Premier League goals during 2016
For any player to score 30 or more goals in the Premier League during 2016, brilliant odds of 3/1 can be gobbled up.
With the likes of Tottenham’s in-form Harry Kane, Manchester City’s sublime Sergio Aguero and clinical Christian Benteke all ending 2015 on a high, there could well be an abundance of goals in 2016 too.
England to be knocked out of Euro 2016 on penalties
Once the domestic campaign reaches its conclusion, the footballing world will cast eyes towards France for Euro 2016, where plenty of home nations will look to make an impact.
Although, if you’re a not so hopeful England fan, who has suffered through many spot-kick exits in previous tournaments, 12/1 odds on your nation to go out of Euro 2016 on penalties will be promising. If you’re going to suffer, you might as well make a profit from it!
Jamie Vardy’s next Premier League club
After his incredible goal scoring accolades of 2015, Leicester City frontman Jamie Vardy will be hot property in 2016 and a host of top Premier League sides will surely pursue his services.
Chelsea are the odds-on 4/5 favourites to lure the Foxes forward to London, but Manchester United are a tempting 5/4 to acquire him, while Liverpool are 16/1 to fork out for Leicester’s deadly marksman.
Riyad Mahrez’s next club in Europe
It’s not just Vardy who is being tipped for a big-money move from Leicester in 2016, with his fellow attacking dangerman Riyad Mahrez also attracting plenty of interest after his dynamic displays.
Arsenal are always on the lookout for new talent and the Foxes playmaker would fit in well with Arsene Wenger’s current crop of stars, with 3/1 odds available on a potential switch to the Emirates.
A Man Utd move is the same price, while a more lucrative switch abroad to Barcelona (5/1), Real Madrid (6/1) or PSG (4/1) could occur instead.
Will any of these players make a Premier League appearance during 2016?
With the January transfer window set to witness plenty of fresh faces in the top-flight, we could well be seeing some of the world’s biggest stars embark on the Premier League stage.
Borussia Dortmund may lose some of their main men in January, or maybe the summer, to Liverpool, with their former boss Jurgen Klopp possibly seeking some of his old allies for his new Reds revolution.
German wideman Marco Reus is 6/4 to make a Premier League appearance in 2016, with his club and international teammate Mats Hummels the same price to do so. Alexandre Pato has also been linked with Liverpool and is 2/1 to feature in England’s top tier in 2016, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic is 5/1 to grace the Premier League with his entertaining presence.
Ronny Deila to be in charge of Celtic on last day of 2016
Scottish Premiership champions Celtic have endured more European misery this season under Ronny Deila and a slight domestic downfall in previous weeks, but the club look likely to stick with their current boss.
For the Norwegian to still be in charge of Celtic on the final day of 2016, odds of 6/4 can be had, while it’s 1/2 for Deila to not hold his position by December 31st, after increased speculation surrounding his future.
Guus Hiddink to be in charge of Chelsea on final day of 2016
Chelsea previously parted ways with Jose Mourinho for a second time and have once again called upon Guus Hiddink to save their season on a temporary basis.
Although, the Dutchman is 7/2 to still be in the job on the last day of 2016, with the club potentially ready to stand by their man.
Leicester to win 2016/17 Champions League
Not many would have guessed that Leicester would sit atop of the Premier League table at Christmas but, after their early campaign success, how about further promise on the European stage?
The Foxes are 250/1 to pull off a sensational Champions League victory next term, with plenty of fans who backed the surprising league summit stint potentially interested in this tempting offer too. Miracles can happen in football.
Any English team to win 2015/16 Champions League
With Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City still vying for glory in Europe’s elite club competition, you can back an English side to triumph at 5/1.
The three Premier League outfits still involved have proven they have what it takes to go all the way in the Champions League and, with these odds spread across a trio of chances, you can’t miss out on such a brilliantly boosted price!
