Easter egg-stravaganza: Rooney and Lukaku in 5/1 scorer special

| 04.04.2015

Coral customers don’t have to hunt for treats this Easter, with this decadent 5/1 double on offer to warm punters up for the return of Premier League football.

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney and Everton record-signing Romelu Lukaku make up this super scorer special, and are available at fabulous odds of 5/1 both to score anytime in their upcoming clashes.

So, make this Easter break a potentially profitable one and put a Spring in your step by backing this brilliant bet.

Rooney has been rampant up top for the Red Devils since being restored to a striking berth by Louis van Gaal. The change has paid dividends so far, as the England skipper has netted four in his last five across all competitions for United.

But for a slice of luck, the Three Lions forward could also have equalled Sir Bobby Charlton’s record as all-time England top scorer over the international break, as he led his nation to glory against Lithuania.

Upon his return to club duty at Old Trafford, Rooney is a fantastic 14/5 to strike first against visiting Aston Villa. The bullish 29-year-old has previously grabbed a fantastic four braces for United against upcoming opponents the Villans, and will be eager to grab more goals this Easter.

Determined to lead his team to a top four spot after helping sink Liverpool last time out, the sensational striker told media: “Yes it was [a six-pointer at Liverpool], but that means nothing if we don’t beat Aston Villa on Saturday.

“If we can get the win against Villa that will be an even better result than Liverpool was for us. I think there are still eight games left. We are in a good position at the minute so it’s in our own hands, so have to make sure we do it.”

Lethal Lukaku, meanwhile, makes up the second half of this dangerous duo, and is 5/1 to strike first against Southampton.

As Toffees top scorer, the big Belgian has struck three in his last four across all competitions, and will spearhead Everton’s attack against the Saints.

Lukaku had the final say last time these two teams met at Goodison Park, and is the same price to poach the closing goal again, or a terrific 2/1 in the anytime market.
