The hosts are favourites at evens with SkyBet, with City priced at 13/5. The draw is 5/2, as new manager Mauro Milanese looks for his first win as O's boss.

In the first goalscorer's market the onus is very much on the home side to open the scoring. David Mooney is 9/2 favourite to break the deadlock, with one time City loanee Chris Dagnall 5/1. Italian Gianvito Plasmati is 11/2, with Jay Simpson 6/1.

For the Sky Blues the attacking trio of Frank Nouble, Simeon Jackson and Josh McQuoid are all priced at 15/2. In the midfield section the likes of last weeks scorer Jim O'Brien at 16/1 and youngster James Maddison at 18/1 might be big enough to attract punters.

Ryan Haynes scored his first professional Sky Blues goal in the 3-2 win over Peterborough last Saturday and you can get massive odds of 50/1 for the wing-back to score first. It is 20/1 for him to score anytime, so if you think he will get two in two games, lump on!

It is difficult to predict a result, as City will be buoyed with last weeks remarkable turnaround, and Orient wanting to impress their new manager. But the Sky Blues have enough quality to get a result, and giving yourself a cushion with a minus one handicap looks the best way to go.

ARSENAL to beat BURNLEY - 1/4

CHELSEA to beat QPR - 1/6
