However the Lukaku bets listed on the “Participant” Specials for Wednesday night time’s Premier League crunch at Outdated Trafford get much more cringy for the ex-Everton ace.
He’s simply 5/1 to be substituted earlier than half-time and seven/1 to fireplace a shot so vast that it goes for a throw-in.
And if Lukaku is itching to attempt his luck from distance in opposition to the flying Gunners, then Betfair have gotten of their first by providing two long-range pictures of their very own.
