MAN UTD v EVERTON
Firm announces 8/1 Rooney/Man Utd to win double
Stoke based unit Bet365 have announced they are offering free bets worth £200/€200 to all new customers this week, plus are offering a stand out price of 8/1 for Wayne Rooney/Man Utd to score first double.
Moyes was in charge at Goodison Park for 11 years but left Merseyside to take over from Sir Alex Ferguson and sentiment will go out the window on Wednesday with the Scot keen to keep pace with leaders Arsenal.
“We have to win all of our games. I’m concerned we’re not as close as we’d like to be (to Arsenal) but it’s a long season and hopefully we’ll be there or thereabouts,” he told MUTV.
“There are a lot of games to go. I think the Premier League is tight and we’ll try to stay on the shirt-tails and put ourselves in a good position at the start of next year.”
After a slow start the Scot is beginning to find his feet and his side are currently in the midst of a 12 game unbeaten run.
The Red Devil’s sit 8th in the table following a 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspurs last time out but are just three points behind third place Manchester City.
United have a number of worries going into the game. Michael Carrick is out with an Achilles injury while Phil Jones will miss out through suspension. That means that 40 year old Ryan Giggs could play in midfield with Shinja Kagawa, Tom Cleverly and Marouane Fellaini hoping to figure alongside the veteran.
Robin van Persie is struggling with toe and groin injuries and will be assessed before the game.
Everton meanwhile currently sit fifth in the table after an impressive start to life under Roberto Martinez.
The club will head to Manchester with no ill effects reported from Saturday’s 4-0 win over Stoke with recent injury absentees Darron Gibson, Arouna Kone and Leighton Baines all still unavailable.
Martinez will bid to become the first Everton manager to taste success at Old Trafford since Howard Kendall inspired a 3-0 win in 1992 thanks to goals from Robert Warzycha, Peter Beardsley and Mo Johnston.
