Prevailing past London side, Crystal Palace earlier this week in their first outing as part of their defense of the Carabao Cup, Manchester United are expected to land a second consecutive victory over Roy Hodgsen’s side in their Premier League return this weekend.
United, who have since won in each of their last two matches following a three game losing run, turned in three goals to none against Palace during their Carabao Cup clash this week at Old Trafford.
Netting an impressive opener through Argentine winger, Alejandro Garnacho, the young wideman latched onto a square ball from Diogo Dalot to fire United ahead on Tuesday night in Manchester.
Soon thereafter, summer signing, Mason Mount, who returned to the side following a niggling injury, registered his first Manchester United assist, whipping in a corner which was nodded home by Brazilian midfielder, Casemiro.
Afforded the freedom to express themselves further up the pitch in the second half, United deployed a double-pivot featuring both Casemiro and Moroccan acquisition, Sofyan Amrabat, who arrived from Serie A side, Fiorentina on loan earlier this year.
Rounding off a one-side route over ‘The Eagles’, French striker, Anthony Martial converted a cross from scorer-turned provider, Casemiro at the back post, slotting past former United goalkeeper, Sam Johnstone.
However, expected to somewhat of a more cagey affair as both side lineup with as full a stenght XI as possible this weekend in the Premier League, United are still closing as -200 betting favorite to beat the +450 Crystal Palace this weekend.
If you fancy wagering and betting on this weekend’s Premier League action, including United’s return against Crystal Palace a host of betting sites and online slots Canada are offering fans odds and betting, both outright and prop on the action.
Without a Premier League win at Old Trafford since a come-from-behind win over Nottingham Forrest, United managed to snap their losing run last week at Turf Moor, with a stunning volley from Portuguese maestro and club captain, Bruno Fernandes from a stunning Johnny Evans ball secured all three points on the road for United.
And amid a leaky defense – which is set to be further hampered by the possible sidelining of Argentina center half, Lisandro Martinez through a lingering foot injury for a potential three months, United will be happy in the knowledge of converting three goals against Bundesliga champions, Bayern Munich in an eventual 4-3 loss in their UEFA Champions League opener earlier this month.
Showing promise in front of goal in a loss to Brighton & Hove Albion, as well as the above-mentioned wins over both Burnley and Crystal Palace, Danish forward, Rasmus Hojlund has been tipped as an out-and-out striking threat from opposition managers and pundits alike, who note his running ability and channel-seeking play.
Although yet to return to full training, academy product, Kobbi Mainoo is sure to land some selection time when he does so, as another prospect, Hannibal Mejbri thrives in a midfield role early in the season.
Furthermore, while too soon to make a return this weekend amid personal issues, Brazilian forward, Antony has returned to England and United training, with a club statement confirming how the right winger will be made available for selection for head coach, Erik ten Hag in the coming weeks to boot.
