PREM UNITED A BIG PRICE

UNITED A BIG PRICE

9th November 2018

If there was any doubt that manchester United's stars were not playing for Jose Mourhino, then the Champions League come-back win at Juve dispels that theory.

Juan Mata was outstanding in Italy and provide the travel hasn't took too much out of their legs, United look big at 8/1 to win at Manchester City.

It is an incredible price but says as much about City's current dominance as about United.

United have managed to win this fixture three times in six years as underdogs, and none of the last six has ended all square. The average number of goals has been just under 3. But that doesn't tell a story. Three games have ended in five goal thrillers and three have ended 1-0,0-1, and 0-0.

Even if United were in dire form they would raise a game for this fixture and our experience tells us the 8/1 with Bet 365 has to be taken. History says United would win every other game in the sequence.

Wolves have come unstuck against the better sides and meet Arsenal at a bad time. The Gunners only need a repeat of last week's 1-1 draw with Liverpool to see off a Wolves side on a run of three straight defeats.

Arsenal look a decenct 4/7 shot so 6/10 in the odd place is value.

Leicester have had a tough week and the funeral of their owner in the far east will have taken a toll and some of the players. They are long odds-on to beat strugglers Burnely. Sean Dyche though has seen his side face a tough sequuence of fixtures and we still think Burnley will finish higher. This could be a draw at a decent price.
