Rampant Rooney and vivacious Vardy fab 4/1 scorer double
Matt Haynes | November 5, 2015
With the weekend upon us, Coral bring customers another superb special for Premier League action which features two terrifically in-form forwards.
Here we feature Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney and Jamie Vardy of Leicester City who make up a fantastic 4/1 anytime scorer double, in what could potentially be a future England strike partnership. To find out why this is such a brilliant bet, read on!
Vardy on superb scoring run
The 28-year-old is in prolific scoring form this season having hit the back of the net in eight consecutive Premier League matches. Should he score in Leicester City’s game against Watford, he will overtake Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge as second highest consecutive scorer in the Premier League, one behind Red Devils legend Ruud van Nistlerooy.
His manager Claudio Ranieri spoke up his striker’s recent call-up to the England squad, highlighting the Sheffield-born player’s ability: “Jamie is an intelligent player. What Roy Hodgson asks of him, he tries to do the best for the team, for the England squad. He’s not selfish,” Ranieri said. “In my opinion he has to be free. When he’s free, he’s amazing. “But we play with two strikers, not with one striker. I am not Roy. I respect him, his shape. For me in my team he plays free, forward.”
Rooney ruled roost over CSKA
Man Utd’s captain returned to scoring form in the 1-0 win over CSKA Moscow in midweek in fabulous fashion and made a nuisance of himself all match. His header highlighted his persistence to be in the right the place at the right time and it was a superbly taken goal.
Against West Bromwich Albion, he can pick up where he left off in midweek, with the Baggies defence less than convincing this season and, if Jesse Lingard keeps providing him with crosses as good as the one in the match at home to CSKA, he can run riot over the Baggies.
