Would Roo believe it: 7/2 for record-breaking at the Stretford End

| 14.01.2017

As a boyhood Evertonian and Manchester United legend, it’s fair to say there’s few more fitting scenario for Wayne Rooney to break Sir Bobby Charlton’s record than against Liverpool at Old Trafford. To do that, he needs to find the net on Sunday…

It’s 17/10 for the 31-year-old to score anytime, while 5/1 says he celebrates breaking the record by pointing to the 1966 Ballon d’Or winner in the stands.

And that’s just one of a raft of specials we’re offering on Rooney’s potential feat, with 7/2 on offer for him to reach the 250-goal mark by scoring in front of the Stretford End against Jurgen Klopp’s men.

Meanwhile, there’s 50/1 on offer for him to score a hat-trick in this fixture, a feat achieved by two players in this decade – Dimitar Berbatov in 2011 and Dirk Kuyt the following year.

Whichever game Rooney smashes the record in, our traders make Paul Pogba the favourite to provide the assist at 9/2, with Ander Herrera 11/2 and the likes of Juan Mata and Zlatan Ibrahimovic priced up at 8s.

Meanwhile, we reckon it’s a safe bet that Wazza’s landmark goal will come from inside the box (1/5), while 50/1 says it’s an overhead kick – the method which produced arguably the most memorable strike of his career, against Manchester City in 2011.

In the match betting, Man United are 6/5 favourites for victory, with Liverpool 13/5 to hoover up the points, and 9/4 on offer for the draw.
