Giroud and Rooney a fantastic 5/1 with Coral to score anytime

In what is expected to be an action-packed weekend of football, Coral have a multitude of offers, including this fabulous 5/1 scorer double, which involves Olivier Giroud and Wayne Rooney to net anytime.

Manchester United take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, in what could well be a crunch clash with both sides battling for the title. Rooney could well be the difference in the game, and Daley Blind has revealed that it was captain’s words which inspired the team to a 4-2 victory over fierce rivals Manchester City last time out.

“It was a thing [Rooney’s pep talk] what was always in our minds,” Blind said. “Everyone knew how important this game was, not only because it’s a rat race in the last games, but also because of the history of the last four games.

“Rooney mentioned that just when we got outside. He just mentioned it before the game to all the players – everyone is already sharp at the moment but it is still something you have in mind when you go on to the pitch.”

The 29-year-old is 2/1 to score anytime in the singular match markets, and he can be crucial for Louis van Gaal’s side, who will need his big players firing if they are to emerge from Stamford Bridge victorious.

Giroud, meanwhile, has hit two in his last three matches against Reading, as well as three in his last three Premier League matches. The fearsome French forward will be eagerly anticipating Arsenal’s FA Cup semi-final against Reading, and is odds-on at 8/11 to net anytime.

The striker has praised the way Arsenal beat Burnley and wants to play a big part in helping the Gunners challenge for the title and a consecutive FA Cup win.

“You can’t play your best football every game. We tried to be focused on not conceding and it’s one more clean sheet,” Giroud said proudly.

“As long as we were winning the game I don’t think we were in too much danger. We are really pleased.

“If we had been told we would win this game 1-0 I would have signed for it straight away. Burnley played really tough against us. It was a big fight.

“We know about the record of the Invincibles. It’s really good for us to be near that and I’m really proud to take part. But we don’t want to stop here. We want to carry on and keep this good run going until the end.”
