Anthony Martial is the answer to an enigmatic Manchester derby.
At best it is only the second most important game that a team plays in the next nine days.
So many questions.
If we offered Pep Guardiola or Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the choice between today’s defeat (16.30) or European fate, what is the call?
Will Pep decide to protect Kevin de Bruyne? Ole chooses to put Harry Maguire aside? Or even Bruno Fernandes?
Would a reboot of The Good Life work with Priti Patel who played a shorter and more sadistic version of the bourgeois buzzkill Margo Leadbetter?
All certainly a “maybe” defined, but only time will tell.
What we do know right now is that United is the W6 D2 L3 versus the Big Six, and buyers of 8/13 City cash could enter for a period of sweat.
Two bets stand out. Martial is undervalued at 9/4 (Fred) “anytime marker” on his numbers.
And the statistics seem ultra-solid for a tidbit of “United scores a penalty” at 9/1 (Bet365) – their raw house data put the 2/1 closest to the sign.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin can help Everton make the most of any late change of luck in Chelsea (14:00).
So far the most notable result of the 2019/20 Toffees has been the goal of Christian Benteke.
But they transform going forward with Carlo Ancelotti – and Chelsea boasts only six clean sheets in 22 houses.
Calvert-Lewin he’s flying to the new boss, punt him “Anytime” on 9/4 (Bet365).
Gylfi Sigurdsson is the “always” fun longpoke at 8/1 (Fred).
It’s Ronaldo vs Lukaku behind closed doors when Inter switch to Juventus (19.45) in Serie A – don’t miss Cristiano Ronaldo “at any time” at a juicy 11/8 (Unibet)
Jamie Vardy will return when Leicester hosts Aston Villa (tomorrow, 20:00), a push for the Foxes, who have forgotten how to score a goal.
It also escaped Vardy’s mind. Not a Scooby from Christmas.
Few parts are in a better position than Villa to rush his memory, but his prices are stupid.
The Villans Wembley is almost man, big Bjorn Engels , to serve something unforgettable in 18/1 “scorer at any time” (Bet365, 888 sport).
Last week: winners on 21/10, 2/1 and Evs.
