Rampant Rooney and brilliant Bony 9/2 to net anytime

With Christmas approaching, we’re keeping our eyes peeled for fantastic offers, and here at Coral, we feel this one is too good to refuse.

Back Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney and Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony both to net anytime at 9/2, and boost your budget this festive season.

Rooney’s Red Devils take on Liverpool, with the Old Trafford skipper looking for his fifth goal against one of the club’s biggest rivals. The 29-year-old forward is in a rich vein of form at the moment with a 50 per cent hit rate over the last four matches, and the last time we recommended him to score, he did so against Hull City, as Louis van Gaal’s side romped to a 3-0 victory.

Liverpool’s defence have been shockingly poor so far this season. The goals that they have conceded have been soft to say the least, and often been the result of sloppy errors. They will be tested to the limit against United, and with an in-form Rooney rampaging his way around the back four, and Angel Di Maria who has six assists so far, laying the goals on.

Bony, meanwhile, has three in his last four fixtures in the Premier League, also scoring last time out. He has established an excellent relationship with Gylfi Sigurdsson, who is his main supply line, helping the Ivory Coast striker achieve seven goals this season.

In testament to Bony’s form, he is perhaps the most highly sought after striker in the Premier League, this winter window. Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal are said to be battling for his signature, despite him penning a new one-year extension to his current contract only recently, which will keep him at the club until 2018.

Manager Garry Monk, however, is adamant that the player is not for sale. “It would take an astronomical fee for Bony to go anywhere,” said Monk.

“We are not a selling club, we don’t need to sell. We are very much committed with our players and they are committed to us and that’s how we move on.”

“It shows that the work that we are doing with him is paying off,” said Monk regarding the interest in the 25-year-old. He works very hard on his finishing and his fitness, so all credit to him and long may it continue.”
