Coral have Benteke and Rooney in super Sunday 6/1 scorer special

| 20.09.2015

Sunday sees the two most successful clubs in English football, Manchester United and Liverpool, face respective lesser opposition Southampton and Norwich City. To celebrate, Coral have put the two main strikers from those Northwest giants in an anytime scorer special, which has super odds of 6/1.

Proven prolific Premier League poachers Wayne Rooney and Christian Benteke feature in this offer, and both have brilliant records against their upcoming opposition.

England and Red Devils skipper Rooney has been saved for this clash with the Saints according to his boss Louis van Gaal, and he will be up for it having scored five times against them before.

The 29-year-old is in great form for club and country after hitting a hat-trick against Club Brugge in the Champions League play-off second leg and dispatching against San Marino and Switzerland to become all-time leading Three Lions marksman.

Rooney jointly tops the normal anytime scorer market at 6/4, while Man Utd are the 29/20 favourites to triumph over Southampton who have won just once all term in the league, which is why this bet is all the more enticing.

The Saints defence have also yet to gel, after conceding three times against Everton and twice against Newcastle United.

Benteke, on the other hand, is even shorter at an odds-on price of 10/11 to find the net, and certainly has found his touch after his astonishing overhead kick effort at Old Trafford.

The big Belgian also has four goals to his name against the Canaries in as many starts, so is highly expected to add to his tally for his new club, who are the heavy 8/13 favourites to triumph at home.

Norwich have also leaked their fair share of goals this season so far since promotion to the Premier League, letting in nine from just five games, and are yet to keep a clean sheet. Benteke will surely be licking his lips ahead of the clash.

So, what are you waiting for Coral customers? Back this brilliant bet while you can!
