Wayne Rooney - Freebets

Wayne Rooney has fallen foul of Sir Alex Ferguson and with something to prove, is 15/8 to score against Manchester City with Boylesports who will give £40 free bets for £20 to new customers. Online bookmakers give new customers free bets which can be placed on the FA Cup 3rd Round.


Sir Alex Ferguson dropped Wayne Rooney from the Manchester United team that lost 3-2 at home to Blackburn after he turned up to post-Christmas training the worse for wear. Rooney is Manchester United’s most influential player but his return to the side to face Newcastle United at the Sports Direct Arena was something of a damp squib and Rooney was pulled off after 74 ineffectual minutes.

Rooney was clearly frustrated at the decision to allow Anderson some game time at his expense and Ferguson will be hoping his actions will shock Rooney back to life in time for the FA Cup 3rd Round tie against Manchester City. Ferguson cannot have enjoyed watching Manchester City’s progress to lead the Premier League title chase this season and having suffered the humiliation of that 6-1 defeat to their City rivals at Old Trafford in October, revenge will be high in Fergie’s mind.

Rooney will heal any rift that may be appearing between him and his boss if he can conjure up an inspired performance in the FA Cup third round tie on Sunday. Stan James stand out at odds of 13/2 for Rooney to put Manchester City on the back foot by scoring the first goal.

Bookies make Manchester City favourite to win this FA Cup tie and Victor Chandler bets 23/20 the home win, 12/5 the draw and 13/5 for Ferguson to taste revenge with an away win.

Roberto Mancini must be getting irritated by Ferguson’s refusal to acknowledge that Manchester City have played the best football in the Premier League this season and is expected to field a strong side to give his adversary a reminder. However, Manchester City will be without the influential YaYa Toure who has left for the African Cup of Nations with Kolo Toure.

Mario Balotelli is struggling to recover from his ankle injury, but top scorer Sergio Aguerro is fit and back in the scoring habit. The Argentian striker  opened the scoring in the 3-0 win against Liverpool last time and is 6/1 with Stan James to do the same against Manchester United on Sunday.
