Atom and Humber finally got to see their owner come home in a good mood on Sunday night, as Alexis Sanchez scored in the 90th minute to seal a 3-2 come-from-behind victory for Manchester United over Newcastle.

It wasn’t just the Chilean’s canine companions getting celebratory belly rubs, as our punters were rubbing their hands together as we were made to shell out just over £390,000 based on the result, all thanks to our 2 Up You Win promotion.

Sanchez’s winner not only meant we had to pay out on a Man United victory, but a Newcastle one as well after they took an early 2-0 lead in the first half.

With Jose Mourinho reportedly on the brink of the sack, The Magpies exploded out the blocks with strikes from Kenedy and new signing Yoshinori Muto inside the first 10 minutes.

However, while Old Trafford was booing, our Newcastle-backing punters were cheering because 2 Up You Win had clicked and we were shelling out over £240,000 80 minutes early.

That wasn’t the end though, as United launched in to a Ferguson-era-like comeback with two goals in six minutes from Juan Mata and Anthony Martial and they’d levelled matters by the 76th minute.

Try as they might, Rafa Benitez’s men couldn’t hold on for a precious point as Alexis Sanchez finally scored his first of the season by burying the ball in the bottom corner, possibly saving his manager’s skin in the process.

That goal had our bean counters scrambling for the calculators though, and another £150,000 went into our punters accounts. It meant our total pay-out to over £390,000, as we were forced to honour wins for both sides in the end.

You could buy a lot of dog food with that!
