Premier League punter wins £40,000 on football fourfold
An online exchange punter has collected nearly £40,000 after correctly predicting the final score in four Premier League matches.
Using online exchange Betfair’s fixed-odds service, the customer placed a wager of £12 on the exact results of all of Sunday’s top flight fixtures, winning themselves £39,690 when Laurent Koscielny's late equaliser secured Arsenal a 1-1 draw away to Manchester City.
The punter had backed that particular scoreline at odds of 6/1, having previously correctly predicted a 2-1 win for Man Utd against Liverpool at a price of 8/1 in the first of the Sunday games.
A 1-0 victory for Newcastle over Norwich came in at 6/1 in a match which included a missed penalty for the Magpies, while a 2-1 Tottenham success against QPR paid out at 13/2.
Tottenham had been 1-0 down in the London derby but came back to secure victory with two goals in one second half minute.
