Back a monkey to invade pitch at Old Trafford at 66/1

By Simon Rice

Following last night’s pitch invasion at Anfield by a stray cat, Ladbrokes have opened the book on which animal will be next to enter the field of play during a live televised match.

You can back a repeat of last night’s incident at 4/1, while squeaking in as the favourite is a mouse, priced at 2/1.

You won’t get much of a return on those odds, so I’d be tempted to go for one of the outsiders. You can get a monkey at 66/1 and a pig for 100/1.

Elephant’s are priced at 250/1, but personally I can’t see that happening.

The latest odds on the next animal to enter the field of play during a live televised Premier League match:

Mouse 2/1

Cat 4/1

Squirrel 5/1

Hamster 6/1

Dog 7/1

Gerbil 10/1

Domestic bird (Parrot etc) 20/1

Reptile of any kind 33/1

Tiger 50/1

Sheep 66/1

Deer 66/1

Monkey 66/1

Pig 100/1

Giraffe 100/1

Cow 100/1

Horse 100/1 (police horses do not count)

Rhino 150/1

Elephant 250/1

Penguin 500/1
