Given that they enjoy home advantage and have won four out of five of their Premier League matches, it’s perhaps understandable that Manchester United have been made emphatic favourites by Coral at 1/2 as they tackle Newcastle in the Capital One Cup.
However, despite their decent form in terms of results, Sir Alex Ferguson’s team haven’t really convinced this term. They were poor against ten men at Anfield on Sunday while Galatasaray matched them for long periods at Old Trafford in last week’s Champions League collision.
Moreover, Crystal Palace carded an away win against the Red Devils in this very competition last year so the Magpies look massively overpriced at 6/1 with BetVictor.
At the Emirates Stadium, William Hill quote 2/9 for what is likely to be a youthful Arsenal team to beat Coventry, Boylesports make Liverpool 8/5 to gain a modicum of revenge over West Brom for their Premier League defeat at the Hawthorns earlier in the campaign and it’s 8/15 courtesy of William Hill for Spurs to progress in normal time at Carlisle’s expense.
