| 01.09.2011

MANCHESTER UNITED goalscorers can punish the bookies again in Bulgaria, according to Ladbrokes.

It’s 11/4 United player(s) account for two or more goals scored in the game and 13/8 that a single goal is scored by a Manchester United player.

Wayne Rooney is the 7/2 favourite to score first and he’s 9/2 to get a goal directly from a free kick.

It’s 14/1 any England player gets a hat trick and the shortest-priced home player to score first is Tsvetan Genkov at 9/1.

England are warm 4/7 favourites to win the match and the draw is priced at 11/4. Bulgaria are 5/1 outsiders.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “Rooney & Young come into the game in red hot form and their goals can do damage again. England have been backed accordingly as punters can’t see past a victory for the Three Lions.”
