City 20-1 to claim all four major trophies this term

Manchester City are 20-1 with Coral to win all four major trophies after beating Bristol City 2-1 in the first leg of Tuesday's League Cup semi-final.

The Citizens needed a late winner from Sergio Aguero to see off their Sky Bet Championship opponents but Coral's John Hill said: "City took a step closer to an unprecedented quadruple and our liability on this market is growing with every week."

Paddy Power go just 14-1 about a City quad, having laid nine bets at 500-1 at the start of the season. Pep Guardiola's men are 1-80 to win the Premier League, 1-20 to reach the League Cup final and 3-1 favourites for the Champions League and the FA Cup.

Gary Rowett is out to 25-1 to be Stoke's next permanent manager after signing a new contract with Derby.

With Slaven Bilic also on the drift for the Potters' post, Martin O'Neill is the 11-8 market leader and former Watford boss Quique Sanchez Flores is as short as 6-4 with some bookmakers.

Hills spokesman Joe Crilly said: "There have been four favourites in five days for the Stoke job but with Rowett staying at Derby the path seems clear for O'Neill."

West Ham are 1-2 favourites with Coral to be Jonjo Shelvey's next club. The firm make the Newcastle midfielder 20-1 to join Southampton and 25-1 to sign for Swansea.

England's preparation for the World Cup finals will conclude with home friendlies against Nigeria and Costa Rica in June. The Three Lions are a general 16-1 to lift the trophy in Russia.

Expert verdict
Since beating Albania 2-0 in September, Scotland have suffered back-to-back defeats including in their Nations League fixture away to a poor Israel side.But they have a gilt-edged opportunity to do so when they renew their rivalry with Albania. The hosts have also failed to win since the Hampden Park encounter and they are without Migjen Basha and Elseid Hysaj who are both banned for this fixture after picking up two yellow cards.
