Coral’s bet of the day
Rooney to score and Man Utd win 17/10
Coral’s latest bet of the day for November 30th comes from the intriguing EFL Cup quarter-final encounter between Manchester United and West Ham United at Old Trafford.
Jose Mourinho’s Red Devils were held by their London cup opponents last time out in a Premier League clash, but are a promising 17/10 to secure victory here inside 90 minutes with skipper Wayne Rooney netting anytime.
The hosts will be keen to put in another strong home showing after their recent 4-0 thrashing of Feyenoord in the Europa League and get the better of a Hammers outfit that managed to hold them to a 1-1 stalemate last weekend.
So read on to see why it’s worth backing Rooney to score and Man Utd win in their midweek tussle with the Irons…
Skipper Rooney chasing goal record
On a night when Arsenal also take on Southampton as part of the interesting EFL Cup fixtures, Man Utd will be aiming to steal the headlines with a dominant home outing and progression to the semis.
They managed to down bitter derby rivals Manchester City in the previous round at Old Trafford, plus captain Rooney has shown signs of much improved form in recent weeks, including when netting against Feyenoord.
The all-time England marksman is just one goal shy of equalling Sir Bobby Charlton’s club record and he will look to level that incredible tally of 249 strikes on home soil tonight.
Rooney has struck twice in five recent outings and boasts an impressive record of 12 total goals in 21 fixture meetings against cup foes West Ham ahead of their arrival.
So make sure not to miss out by backing Rooney to score and Man Utd win at a promising 17/10 price for tonight’s League Cup action!
