Back Manchester United to score against Liverpool at 5/1!
Fancy a flutter with a new bookmaker this weekend? Purely available to new customers, Coral bring you fantastic 5/1 odds for Manchester United just to score against Liverpool, with a maximum bet of £5.
Louis van Gaal’s have netted against their fierce rivals on 14 of the last 17 occasions that they have played each other, and this season have more than enough in their armoury to do just that. The home side are also on a five-match winning streak in the Premier League, and in that run have racked up a total of 10 goals, which translates to an average of two per game.
United’s strikes this season have come from a plethora of players, which has eased the burden on main strikers Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie, though the duo have still chipped in with their fair share. The latter, 4/1 to net first, bagged a brace to down Southampton last time out, and has three in as many matches, as well as being the club’s top scorer with six league goals.
Just behind him is strike partner Wayne Rooney, on five, who last dispatched in the 3-0 victory against Hull City, which was his second in two matches, having struck what turned out to be the winner against Arsenal. Rooney, who is also 4/1 to break the deadlock in the match against Liverpool, is enjoying his football this season, having scored three for England in Euro 2016 qualifiers, and made three assists.
New signing Angel Di Maria has made a huge impression since joining the club and, although he has hit the back of the net three times, it is in the assist department where he has really made the difference for United. Responsible for laying on six goals in the Premier League, the likes of Rooney and Van Persie appreciate that there is someone who can spot the runs they make, and deliver precise balls.
