Hills are enhancing the price of the attacking trio of Aguero, Rooney and Tevez to open the scoring to an unbelievable 8/1. For the William Hill Match Winner, we are highlighting both teams' top strikers. Carlos Tevez to score and City to win is 5/1 while Wayne Rooney to score anytime and United to win is 6/1.
