You bet RVP will make it RIP for EFC
Robin van Persie looks set to make his Manchester United debut as his new team travel to Goodison and William offer 2/1 that he scores more than the whole Everton team put together. Everton are 11/8 to score more than RVP and they are 13/8 to tie. Van Persie is the 4/1 favourite to score the first goal and has been really well backed at Hills to do so, while former Blue, Wayne Rooney, is the 9/2 second favourite. Everton's Nikica Jelavic is 7/1.
After his former club failed to find the net on Saturday, William Hill offer 8/11 that Arsenal manage to register a goal in the Premier League before van Persie does.
"There are many who think that van Persie has a lot to prove after only really having one full season at Arsenal and he will want to get off to a scoring start and our punters are really backing him to do so," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.
The match at Goodison is notable every year for the fact that it sees Wayne Rooney return to his former club and Hills are offering a market on what the United talisman will do first. He is 15/8 to get a goal, 9/4 to be substituted and the same price to complete the game. He is 3/1 to receive a yellow card before anything else in the game and 40/1 to see a straight red.
Manchester United are odd on at 10/11 to get their season off to a winning start, with Everton 10/3 and the draw 23/10.
Despite their opening day defeat, William Hill still think that Liverpool will finish above their local rivals, Everton - offering 4/9 that they do so (13/8 they do not).
