The Betting

Match Result:

Manchester United 24/10

Draw 26/10

Manchester City 9/8

Note, odds quoted are an approximate average and are correct at the time of last update but are subject to change

Verdict:

Paul Pogba’s red card at Arsenal last weekend does United no favours but I’m siding with the draw here. United have extraordinary talent in goal and they are not in the habit of conceding league goals at Old Trafford. De Gea will still have to do well to keep a clean sheet but I reckon the value in the betting markets rests with the draw.

Bet: Match Result Draw at 26/10
