Last season’s Premier League runners-up, Manchester United, get their new campaign started with a home clash against Leeds United, who has another decent season to finish 9th last term.

It’s no shock to see the match betting with Man Utd as the clear favourites at 1.50, with the Draw 4.50 and Leeds 5.75.

This repeat fixture last season ended in a comfortable 6-2 home win for Man Utd too, with the Red Devils’ Fernandes netting twice in the game – he’s on offer at 5.50 (1st) or 2.20 (anytime).

All eyes will also be on new United signing Jadon Sancho, who will be making his debut for the Red Devils – he’s 6.00 (1st) or 2.30 (anytime). It’s also worth noting that United’s Scott McTominay netted twice in this fixture last season too, but team news will have to be checked in the lead-up to the game to see if he’s in the side. He’s 17.00 (1st), or 6.00 (anytime).

Looking at the Leeds side, their top league scorer last term was Patrick Bamford – he’s on offer at 8.00 (1st) or 3.00 (anytime), while Stuart Dallas was on target in this fixture last season and is 23.00 (1st) or 8.00 (anytime).

It’s also worth pointing out that Manchester United have never lost at home to Leeds in the Premier League (13 games), while the last time Leeds beat the red side of Manchester in the league away was in 1981!.

Other options to look for are that both teams scored in 6 of the last 9 head-to-heads, so this might appeal at 1.61, while 6 of the last 9 clashes also saw UNDER 2.5 GOALS, while 8 of the last 13 also saw less than 3 total goals scored. You can back Under 2.5 GOALS at 2.37.

Overall, it’s a game that most will expect Manchester United to get off to the perfect start in, but Leeds have come out of the traps well in recent seasons and might be dangerous to underestimate.

Therefore, the Under 2.5 Goals option at 2.37 is fair value, but if you take the ‘safety net’ option and give yourself another goal cushion, then Under 3.5 Goals at 1.57 makes plenty of appeal.
