Wayne worth an interest at 11/2

Live on BBC1: Mon 19.45: Wayne Rooney is 11/2 (bet365) to score first as Man Utd host Arsenal in the FA Cup.

When the FA Cup quarter final draw was made, only five Premier League teams remained in the competition and the two highest-placed of those – Manchester United and Arsenal – were paired against each other in a mouth watering showdown at Old Trafford.

Aided by home advantage, United get the nod from bookies, bet365 installing them as 6/4 favourites to reach the last four at the first attempt, while the Gunners are Stan James’s 15/8 outsiders and it’s 5/2 with BetVictor for the tie to require a replay.

Arsene Wenger’s troops have faced the sterner tests in the competition so far, a factor that some punters might feel stands them in good stead ahead of this one. There could subsequently be interest in BetVictor’s 7/2 for the visitors to hold Louis Van Gaal’s men to a score draw or Winner.com’s 4/7 for the North London outfit to avoid defeat.

However, Manchester United have enjoyed the upper hand over Arsenal on their own patch in recent years, winning their last six home assignments against the Gunners and having also defeated Wenger’s charges at the Emirates earlier this term, they look well placed to do the business once more.

Betway chalk them up at a generous 17/2 to again finish on the right side of a 2-1 scoreline, a home success by a one goal margin is a 13/4 shot at Ladbrokes and in what should be a tight affair, the same firm go 5/1 about Manchester United shading it following an even first half, as they did in their Premier League clash in November.

Wayne Rooney was the catalyst for United’s triumph that day and was also the match winner as United saw off Sunderland in their last home game so he’s hard to beat in terms of value at 11/2 in bet365’s ‘Draw No Bet’ market.

Recommended Bets:
Man Utd to beat Arsenal by one goal – 13/4 (Ladbrokes)
Wayne Rooney to score first 11/2 (bet365)
