- Liverpool vs Arsenal Premier League game at Anfield saw Waynes Jones going home with £21,000
- The Man United fan predicted the scoreline and who Arsenal's scorer would be with just £20
- The 61-year-old claims he will use the money to buy cars for his three kids and a pair of jogging shoes for himself
Liverpool's 3-1 win over Arsenal in their Premier League clash at Anfield this season had Man United fan named Wayne Jones smiling to the bank.
The 61-year-old staked just £20 and won an incredible £21,000 after backing United's fierce rivals in winning the match.
It is not the first time the 61-year-old will be handsomely rewarded for correctly predicting the outcome of a match.
Two years ago, Jones gambled that the Red Devils would defeat rivals Manchester City and won £7,000 in the process in a match that ended 3-2 at the Etihad.
Jones had predicted that Alexander Lacazette would score first but Arsenal would end up losing to Jurgen Klopp's side.
He told the Manchester Evening News:
“I was checking out the games quickly, and thought Grealish would score first because he’d be looking to get selected for England.
“Regarding the game at Anfield, I always think that Lacazette takes three or four games to get into his stride and that Virgil van Dijk always starts slowly. That was my thinking.
“Even though I’m a big Manchester United supporter I know that Liverpool are more than capable of getting back into the game, even if they go behind early on.
“You have to be realistic and accept that Liverpool as champions are far better than United at the moment. Eventually we will get back, but not necessarily this season!”
Jones claimed that he would spend his money buying cars for his three children Katherine, 26, Liam, 24, Kristy 19, and would be himself a pair of running shoes.
“You could say I’m keeping my feet on the ground.
“I might be 61 years of age, but I like to go for regular runs and go to the gym.”
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Edinson Cavani has revealed that he nearly quit football after he and his girlfriend battled the deadly coronavirus.
The Uruguayan striker completed a deadline day move to Man United with an option of a one-year extension.
The 33-year-old spent seven years of his career at Paris Sait-Germain and became their all-time top scorer with 250 goals.
