Price Boost: Welbeck AND Fletcher don the Ladbrokes’ jerseys

| 21.01.2014

Despite shelling out yet more boosted-odds moolah to gleeful punters when Alvaro Negredo pounced first during Manchester City’s rudimentary 3-0 second-leg, Capital One Cup triumph over West Ham, Ladbrokes are back for more punishment.

Anyone still rubbing their hands from their 7/2 windfall on Negredo scoring first, should seriously consider another flutter on one or both of Ladbrokes’ latest double-sided Capital One Cup semi-final offerings.

Danny Welbeck to score first v Sunderland @ 9/2 – out from 7/2

In the absence of Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie, Welbz has flourished like an otter in a well stocked fishing lake, scoring six times in his last 11 appearances.

With Wazza and RVP still sidelined, the in-form England man is quids-in to lead the United line against his former club once more.

And having notched in three of his last four in front of the Old Trafford crowd, there isn’t a more well-equipped candidate in the home ranks to draw first blood.

Steven Fletcher to score first v Man United @ 14/1 – out from 10/1

Sunderland’s resurgence has been there for all to see, as the Black Cats have lost just once in 10 matches, which included their first-leg 2-1 triumph at the Stadium of Light.

Despite rumours of a rift, Sunderland’s £12m striker, Fletcher, should make the starting line-up after making do with the bench against Southampton.

The Scot looked very sharp in the first leg, although he didn’t find the net, Fletch proved his big-match scoring mentality earlier in the season, when he registered the first goal of the Tyne-and-Wear derby.
