Skipper to score first at 7/2

Live on BTSport 1: Sat 12.45: Wayne Rooney is 7/2 (Ladbrokes) to score first as Man Utd face Swansea in the Premier League opener.

Louis van Gaal is 4/11 with William Hill to make a winning start as Manchester United boss as his team get the season under way in Saturday’s early kick-off against Swansea at Old Trafford.

Eager to impress their new boss in his first competitive assignment, the hosts hold all of the aces and just as they did on the opening day last season – when they also had a new manager – they should get the better of the South Wales outfit relatively comfortably.

Their price however gives little away and punters seeking slightly heftier returns might be better served visiting Stan James’s handicaps, where United give away a goal start at 5/6.

More precisely, they’re 13/2 at BetVictor to net twice without reply, which will appeal to some, although the best bet could be Ladbrokes’s 7/2 for Wayne Rooney to open the scoring.

The England striker was handed the captain’s armband by Van Gaal this week and can repay the manager’s faith.
