It was a Sunday of highs and lows for one lucky punter this weekend as Manchester United’s dramatic second half comeback helped him scoop a sensational £58,670 from a 3,378/1 acca.
The 888sport customer won the £8,000 jackpot on their free-to-play Up For 8 game, but that wasn’t all. The punter put his money where his mouth was, backing the selections in a £15 accumulator and spending the majority of Sunday with shredded nerves.

This was no standard punt on the odds-on favourites either, as you can see from the selections below:
- Cardiff to win vs Luton
- Draw in Sheffield Wednesday vs Stoke
- Leeds to win at Everton
- West Brom to win vs Sheffield United
- Manchester United to win at Southampton
- Draw in Chelsea vs Tottenham
- Wolves to win at Arsenal
Saturday was comparatively run-of-the-mill for this bettor as Sheffield Wednesday and Stoke played out a bore draw and Cardiff cruised to victory over Luton before Leeds and West Brom edged their respective matches. Four down, four to go.
Sunday couldn’t have started much worse though as Southampton took a 2-0 lead in the first half against Manchester United, but luck was on their side as Manchester United battled back in the second half, culminating in a dramatic 92nd minute winner from Edinson Cavani.
Chelsea and Tottenham’s stalemate was a dull affair by comparison, but it was a Sunday evening never to be forgotten. Wolves, bereft of their star striker following a sickening collision early on, battled their way to a deserved three points at the Emirates to send this customer up to cloud nine £58,000 richer!
What a weekend for the man/woman!
Let’s take a look at the results in full:
- Cardiff 4 – 0 Luton
- Sheffield Wednesday 0 – 0 Stoke
- Everton 0 – 1 Leeds
- West Brom 1 – 0 Sheffield United
- Southampton 2 – 3 Manchester United
- Chelsea 0 – 0 Tottenham
- Arsenal 1 – 2 Wolves
