A lucky punter has apparently won an incredible £110,440 from a two-fold bet on Wednesday’s EFL Cup third-round fixtures.

Twitter user Dean Woodward claimed on Wednesday night that someone had won big by putting £2.50 on two bets which combined to give him odds of 44,000/1.

The fortunate mystery gambler bet on Leander Dendoncker to have two or more headed shots on target for Wolves and Chelsea’s Hakim Ziyech to have one or more shots on target with both his right and left feet.

Woodward went on to post the purported winnings on Twitter with nothing more than a mind-blown emoji, even adding in the replies that he “wished” the bet was his.

They apparently won big thanks to Dendoncker, 26, who grabbed the first of Wolves’ goals with a header after a Rayan Ait-Nouri corner before setting up Daniel Podence for the equaliser.

Wolves took Tottenham to penalties after fighting their way back from 2-0 down but eventually lost the shoot-out 3-2.

Meanwhile, Chelsea knocked out Aston Villa in a nail-biting affair which was also decided by penalties.

The Blues were put in front with a Timo Werner header but the German missed a clear-cut opportunity shortly after, giving Villa the chance to get back into the game which forward Cameron Archer seized.
