Jose Mourinho's side have been prolific in their opening two matches of the campaign and dabblebet go 7/2 (4.50) that they reach three figures

Manchester City were expected to be the most prolific Premier League team this season but in fact, it has been their fiercest rivals that have been troubling the scorers most thus far.

Two games in and Jose Mourinho's side have scored eight times during back-to-back 4-0 victories over West Ham and Swansea. While it's unlikely that the Red Devils keep up that level of potency in the final third, dabblebet are going 7/2 (4.50) that United score 100 or more top flight goals this season.

Far from the cautious tactics that the Old Trafford faithful witnessed in Mourinho's first campaign in charge, United have been rampant. Not only have they gone into both half time breaks ahead thus far, but have piled on the misery after half-time too and that kind of ruthlessness in the final 20 minutes of matches could be the different between reaching this milestone and falling short.

Paul Pogba Anthony Martial Manchester United Swansea City

With Paul Pogba freed up by Nemanja Matic's signing, the France international seems much more likely to find himself in attacking positions, while Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial should ensure there is plenty of competition for places in the final third.

After a shaky start to life in England, Henrikh Mkhitaryan seems to be thriving in an attacking midfield role like the one where he was so devastatingly effective for Borussia Dortmund in his final year at the club.

There will be plenty of tougher games than the two United have played so far of course, but the initial signs are that they are legitimate title contenders under a manager who has an exceptional record of success in his second season at every club he's ever managed. dabblebet are 9/4 (3.25) that the Portuguese boss leads the Reds to their first domestic crown since 2013.

With that kind of potential, the 7/2 (4.50) could on over 100 goals could certainly provide punters with an interesting side bet for the remainder of the campaign, not to mention if Mourinho decides to re-sign Zlatan Ibhrahimovic, who is still on the lookout for a new club following his injury in last season's Europa League semi-final and has been linked with a return to Old Trafford.

GFX FACT UNITED TO SCORE A TON

The main man though, is Romelu Lukaku. The £70 million signing from Everton has hit the ground running, scoring three goals in his first two Premier League appearances for the club. Now 2/1 (3.0) favourite for the Golden Boot, dabblebet go 5/2 (3.50) that the 25-year-old Belgium international nets 30 goals this season.

The 30 club is a pretty exclusive one, but Lukaku's early season showings, combined with United's overall attacking intent, suggest he should get the chances to go close.

Only seven players have ever netted 30 or more Premier League goals in a single campaign, they inlcude Andy Cole, Thierry Henry, Cristiano Ronaldo and all-time leading scorer Alan Shearer.

Lukaku is available at 23/10 (3.30) to break the deadlock at Old Trafford against Leicester City this weekend and just 4/7 (1.57) to extend his scoring streak to three top flight matches..
