ONE punter was left cursing his luck on Sunday after cashing out a £40,000 double bet for less than £3k.
The football fan placed a £2 Double at odds of 20,300/1 on Manchester United beating Leeds 6-2 and Liverpool beating Crystal Palace 7-0.
He won the latter as Liverpool stormed to victory at Selhurst Park.
But instead of holding firm in the other game, he decided to cash out in the 62nd minute with United beating Leeds 4-1 at the time.
That gave him a confirmed £2,279.56 from Sky Bet.
But the pundit must have been left in disbelief as United scored two more goals with Leeds also pulling another back at Old Trafford.
However, he can still find some consolation in the fee he did pocket from just a £2 bet.
Liverpool’s 7-0 win against Palace at Selhurst Park saw them go four points clear at the top of the Premier League table.
Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino both scored twice in the thrashing.
Takumi Minamino, Sadio Mane and Jordan Henderson also scored for the defending champions.
Meanwhile, United moved into third with a game in hand after they taught Leeds a lesson at the Theatre of Dreams.
Scott McTominay and Bruno Fernandes each netted twice for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s title outsiders.
Victor Lindelof and Daniel James also scored as United moved just five points behind Liverpool.
