Romelu Lukaku

Betting company offers odds on Lukaku making embarrasing mistakes

Romelu Lukaku has been mocked by Betfair, who were offering odds on the Manchester United striker making an embarrassing mistake against Arsenal.

Lukaku made a second half appearance on Wednesday, but could not help Manchester United get all three points  as the  game ended in a draw.

Lukaku has been the subject of ridicule in recent weeks and injured himself against Southampton after tumbling over following a poor first touch.

And now punters have been given the chance to bet on the 25-year-old’s future misfortune.

Betfair’s ‘specials’ section rates Lukaku at 5/2 to fall over the ball and 33/1 to assist an Arsenal goal.

He is 2/1 to dribble the ball out of play and 7/1 to have a wayward shot miss so abjectly that it goes out of play for a throw in.

Lukaku is even 50/1 to score an own goal past David de Gea in the Premier League clash with the Gunners at Old Trafford.\ The powerhouse forward scored in United’s 2-2 fightback against Southampton at the weekend, ending a 981-minute wait for a goal.

Away fans have taken the opportunity to ridicule him during the goal drought and he’s looked bereft of confidence at times. — Daily Mail
