Derby Day Duo
Last season's United comeback win is a tough act to follow but this derby has the added appeal that it could blow the title race wide open.
The Manchester derby could be a classic and with United’s upturn in fortunes it’s become trickier to predict the narrative. Last season’s match at the Etihad was bewildering; City could have been 6-0 up at half-time only to lose 3-2 in the end.
The smarter move this time feels like backing goalscorers instead of match outcome and BetFair have an oddsboost worth considering with 10/1 on Aguero and Martial both scoring at some point.
The Argentine is having a prolific campaign, netting in 5 of his last 7 appearances in all competitions despite Guardiola often only giving him an hour to keep him fresh. With an average of 4.6 shots per game ‘Kun’ is streets ahead of the rest of the Premier League when it comes to opportunities.
Meanwhile Martial has suddenly made himself undroppable for crunch matches after scoring 5 times in his last 6 appearances for the previously unconvinced Mourinho.
A double-figure winner would make this derby an even better watch.
