Rooney wonder strike sends Man Utd clear of chasing pack

| 14.02.2011

It’s the goal of the season and it may well have ended any hopes Manchester City have of winning the Premier League title this season.

Wayne Rooney’s overhead kick will be the number one conversational topic in pubs up and down the country and the England striker’s 78th-minute winner sees Manchester United go 1/2 in the Premier League winners betting.

A £25 stake on Wayne Rooney picking up his fourth Premier League winners medal would return £37.50 and new customers can sign up here for a free Premier League bet worth £25.

Man City have been pushed right out to 28/1 to win the Premier League, and having fallen eight points behind Man Utd having played an extra game, it’s safe to say Roberto Mancini will focus all his energy into finishing in the top four.

Arsenal will want to close the gap on Man Utd and should do with a home win over Wolves today, but Chelsea will have to wait for their Monday night clash with Fulham to shorten the deficit.

The Premier League betting makes Arsenal the 9/4 second favourites for the league and with Chelsea being 13 points behind Man Utd, it’s hard to see Carlo Ancelotti’s side get back into the title race.

But Chelsea still have to face Man Utd twice before the end of the season, and that 13-point gap could well be four by the time the two teams make up their games in hand, and the 10/1 for Chelsea to win the league could be a huge price.

A £25 stake on Chelsea winning the league would return £650. New customers can sign up here for a free bet worth £25.
