Back Jelavic and Rooney both to score anytime at 6/1
Manchester United captain Rooney scored on his first outing of the season last time out, to get the ball rolling for the new campaign, and looks to be relishing being selected as a striker again in manager Louis van Gaal’s new look 3-4-1-2 formation.
Rooney is only six away from the all-time away goals record in the Premier League, currently held by Alan Shearer. The England international is always a good bet to notch on his travels and will be eager to build on the start he had against Swansea City.
Sunderland conceded twice last time out against a distinctly average West Brom side, and Gus Poyet’s defence will have their work cut out, if Rooney performs to his potential and is in the mood to run riot.
The former Everton man struck 17 league goals last campaign, which is his third best return in his entire career.
Jelavic signed for Hull in January from Everton and, alongside Shane Long, played a pivotal role in keeping the Tigers in the Premier League. With Steve Bruce said to be chasing Blackburn Rovers’ Jordan Rhodes, the Croatian will be keen to remind his manager that he can still do the business in front of net, against a Stoke City rearguard that conceded a soft goal against Aston Villa.
He scored four times in 16 games last term and, in front of what will be a rocking home crowd, can open his account for the season in style.
Following Long’s rather expensive move to Southampton, the 28-year-old is now the focal point for Bruce’s side and his goals will be crucial in making sure they continue to capitalise on their excellent work from last season.
Coral will be bringing you more fantastic offers throughout the season, though as always, enjoy your football!
