Hey Guys. Hope you’ve all had a good weekend, thought I’d share my thoughts on the Manchester United vs. Liverpool game this Sunday afternoon. Mainly regarding Wayne Rooney & his chance’s of opening the scoring, see his current form below courtesy of wikipedia;
On 23 January 2010, Rooney scored all four goals in Manchester United's 4–0 win over Hull City; three of the goals came in the last 10 minutes of the match. This was the first time in his career that he bagged four in one match.
On 27 January 2010, he continued his great scoring run by heading the winner in the second minute of stoppage time against derby rivals Manchester City. This gave United a 4-3 aggregate win, taking them into the final, it was his first League Cup goal since netting two in the 2006 final. On 31 January 2010, Rooney scored his 100th Premier League goal in a 3-1 win over Arsenal for the first time in the league at the Emirates, notably his first Premier League goal also came against Arsenal. On 16 February 2010, Rooney hit his first European goals of the season, scoring two headers in the 3-2 away win against A.C. Milan in their first ever win against them at the San Siro. On 28 February 2010, he scored another header against Aston Villa (his fifth consecutive headed goal in a row) which resulted in Manchester United winning the Carling Cup final 2-1. In the second leg of United's European tie against AC Milan, Rooney scored a brace in a resounding 4-0 home victory, taking his tally of goals this season to 30. He then added 2 more to his tally just 5 days later at Old Trafford, in a 3-0 win over Fulham.
I don’t usually give out tips & prefer just to follow sports pundits predictions but I think it would be foolish to look past Wayne Rooney for 1st goal;
1) Current Form
2) Home Game (Old Trafford)
3) Fresh (No midweek game)
4) Big Game Player
I know his record vs. Liverpool is pretty poor & hasn’t scored in 10 games against them but that said he is now a far more frequent visitor to the opposition penalty-box. I spoke to professional sports handicapper James Browning who tells me the best price is over Coral at 10:3, I personally can’t see anybody but Wayne scoring at either end & it’s got to be worth 1 maybe 2 points.
Good luck everybody.
