Now this is what you call a Super Sunday. It’s kicking off with a lie-in, a full Irish breakfast and then rolling straight into Chelsea v Arsenal followed by Manchester United v Everton.
There’s not a trip to IKEA or the in-laws in sight. So, bring on Rooney’s return to Old Trafford. Hit me with temperamental Arsenal fans, I’m ready for it.
If the odds are anything to go by, the home teams are the favourites to land three points tomorrow. Chelsea are 5/6 to mug Arsene Wenger off at Stamford Bridge, and The Red Devils find themselves priced at 3/10 to take the three points.
Hardly surprising, when you consider The Gunners have lost to their London rivals on each of their last five visits to the Bridge, including the 3-1 back in February.
Ronald Koeman’s side, meanwhile, are yet to win an away game this campaign and have been victorious against United just four times in their last
Can Wayne Rooney deliver an uppercut to Jose Mourinho’s chin and make an impact on his return? He’s 7/2 to score at any time, though he wasn’t prolific when these two sides met and he was in a red shirt.
Sorry Roo, but there’s a new boy in town and Romelu Lukaku to score two or more goals on his first meeting with his old team is 4/1. This seems much more likely, considering he’s already netted four goals this campaign and got his first Champions League goal on Tuesday.
Chelsea only lost one of their last ten meetings with Arsenal, so a home side double with over 2.5 goals at 4/1 could be one to look at tomorrow.
