Firmino and Rooney both to score at 10/1
Following high scoring midweek matches in the Premier League, both Liverpool and Manchester United now go head-to-head on Sunday, a match which features our bet of the day.
Our picked price from that battle is for both in-form attackers Roberto Firmino (23/10 in the normal market) and Wayne Rooney (19/10) to net anytime at a terrific 10/1 with Coral.
This bet is all the more enticing given their scoring exploits last time out in the league, as both bagged braces in 3-3 draws.
Brazilian Firmino got his double, including a screamer, against Arsenal on Wednesday, while Red Devils skipper Rooney netted twice at Newcastle United to take his recent run to four goals in his last three games in all competitions.
International attackers in scoring form
On top of that, Rooney has three strikes in his previous four matches against Liverpool in the Premier League, including an early opener in a 3-0 win at Old Trafford last season.
Firmino, meanwhile, has been revitalised under new boss Jurgen Klopp, particularly in the big games. The former Hoffenheim forward scored once against Manchester City and made two assists, and also set up a goal in the 1-0 victory over high-flying Leicester City.
So, what are you waiting for Coral punters? Take this tasty 10/1 price on Brazil international Firmino and England captain Rooney to find the net anytime to reap rewards.
