Liverpool face Manchester United at Anfield this Saturday in what promises to be an incident-filled game – and there is now another reason to get excited as Ladbrokes have a brilliant money back offer available to new and existing customers.
If Steven Gerrard scores at any time during the game, Ladbrokes will refund all losing first player to score bets.
Gerrard has recently returned from injury and continues to be an inspirational figure for Liverpool.
He scored two penalties over the two-legs of their Carling Cup semi-final victory over Manchester City and has a very decent record against United in their recent meetings.
He scored the Reds’ only goal against United in their 1-1 draw at Anfield back in October, meaning he has now hit the net three times in his previous four appearances against United.
In fact, if you’re looking for someone to back to score first, then you could do a lot worse than putting your cash on Gerrard – he scored first in the October game against United and found the net first in both of the games against City.
Gerrard is 7/1 to be the first player to score and is joined by fellow Reds Craig Bellamy and Andy Carroll.
Favourite though is Wayne Rooney who can be backed at 5/1 to open the scoring at Anfield – although he hasn’t found the net at Liverpool’s ground since a league game back in 2005.
There are sure to be plenty of incidents and – with no goalless draw in their previous 14 meetings – there should hopefully be a fair few goals as well.
