Sergio Aguero is 10/1 for the Premier League Golden Boot after netting on his first Manchester City start for more than a month.

The Argentine scored in City's 3-0 win over West Ham in the Capital One Cup on Tuesday - adding to his goals as a substitute in the previous two matches - to show he means business following his calf injury.

Due to his time on the sidelines, Aguero has plenty of ground to make up on runaway leader Luis Suarez. The City man has 13, while the Liverpool striker has 22.

However, some firms are betting each way to two places which could tempt some punters in.

They might also be interested in the in-form Alvaro Negredo, 50/1 in the same market with Coral.

The Spaniard scored City's other two goals at Upton Park to take his recent tally to nine in six games in all competitions. However, he currently has only nine league goals to his name.

City's victory saw them win the tie 9-0 on aggregate to book their place at Wembley where they will face either Manchester United or Sunderland. They play their second leg on Wednesday.

City are general 4/9 shots to lift the trophy. Coral and 888sport offer 5/2 about United, who trail 2-1 from the first leg, with Sunderland out at 12/1 (William Hill).

City also continue to shorten in the trophy multiple markets with the Quadruple, a feat never achieved before, now into 66/1 (general).

Coral have already priced up the 2014/15 Premier League title race and make Manuel Pellegrini's men 11/8 favourites.
