Stilyan Petrov’s visitors are 10/1, with the draw 4/1. After ending his dry spell, Wayne Rooney is 11/4 favourite to score first, with captain Steven Gerrard at 4/1 and in-form Theo Walcott at 6/1.
David Williams of Ladbrokes said, “Punters have been slow to get excited about the match but we reckon they’ll wade into the Three Lions as kick off approaches.”
