Price Boost: Robin van Persie enhanced to down Tottenham

| 28.12.2014

Manchester United take on Tottenham on Sunday and while those watching at home will be probably still be feeling Christmas withdrawal symptoms, Ladbrokes are keeping the spirits high with another timely Price Boost.

The subject of this offer is none other than Robin van Persie, with the Dutchman being given enhanced odds in the First Player To Score market.

Now fit and flying, the Dutchman has been keeping Radamel Falcao out of the Red Devils’ side and looks the most likely goal threat for the hosts, making the huge odds of 6/1 – up from 4/1 – a very tempting selection.

Van Persie suffered a slow start to the campaign but the cobwebs have now been well and truly blown off with the Manchester United hit man bagging 10 goals in his 23 outings for club and country before Christmas.

With five of those strikes coming in last seven games prior to Boxing Day the 31-year-old is certainly in a purple patch but there is even more reason to view this enhancement as a gift.

Van Persie opened the scoring four times before Christmas and has a proven record against Spurs.

The former Arsenal striker has netted one goal against Maurico Pochettino’s men since swapping north London for the north west but was a thorn in Tottenham’s side while at the Emirates, scoring five goals against the Lilywhites in an injury-hit Gunners career.

The Red Devils can be backed to go into the New Year in high spirits at 5/4 to claim all three points.

A draw can be backed at 5/2 while it’s 2/1 that Spurs extend their four-game unbeaten streak over the Red Devils with victory against Louis van Gaal’s men.

But with Van Persie boosted and on the prowl it is the subject of this Boxing Day Price Boost who looks to provide the best value.

All Odds and Markets are correct as of the date of publishing.
