Our man-in-the-know expects Rooney to inspire United to victory over Wigan Athletic and is backing plenty of goals as Manchester City take on West Bromich Albion at the Etihad Stadium.
Rooney has scored 22 goals in 28 games this season and the England forward will be desperate to get on the score-sheet again as the Red Devils chase a 20th league title. The 26-year-old will also be on penalty duty should the opportunity arise, so Rooney to score at 8/13 looks great value in this one.
The Red Devils have a 100 per cent record against Wigan in the Premier League. Sir Alex Ferguson’s side won the title at the DW Stadium in 2008 and United had a crucial win in 2009 when Michael Carrick scored a late strike. The reigning champions can all but retain their title with victory at Wigan and 2/5 is a more-than-solid bet.
Manchester City dropped their first points at the Etihad Stadium in the league in a 3-3 draw with Sunderland. City’s games have certainly had no shortage of goals, with seven of their last eight finishing with over 2.5 goals. Roberto Mancini’s side need three points to stand any chance of denying United and over 2.5 goals looks an excellent bet at 8/15.
Arsenal are the league’s in-form team – aside from Manchester United – winning eight of their last nine games. Arsène Wenger’s men will be eager to consolidate third place following Tottenham Hotspur’s slip-up on Monday night, while Wolves are a side in crisis and look to be heading back to the Championship. The Tipster is backing Arsenal to win at Molineux on Wednesday night at 2/5.
Theo Walcott’s resurgence over the past month has been quite remarkable. The Arsenal forward has managed to sway his detractors with two goals and an assist in his last five games. The 23-year-old to score first and the Gunners to win is the Tipster’s long-range effort for this edition at 7/1.
