In fine form since moving into a central position under Solskjaer, Al Hain-Cole thinks the young striker offers excellent value to star against Spurs

With Tottenham and Manchester United both in fine attacking form, Sunday's Premier League clash at Wembley promises plenty of goalmouth action.

Mauricio Pochettino's men have scored 23 goals in their last six matches, with Harry Kane on target in all six of those games.

In fact, the England striker has hit the net eight times in his last eight league starts, and is bet365's 3/1 (4.00) favourite to open the scoring against the Red Devils for the second time this season, or 4/5 (1.80) to strike anytime.

Son Heung-Min's form is similarly impressive given he has fired nine goals in his previous 11 matches in all competitions, making him an extremely attractive 15/8 (2.88) shot to star once again before heading off to the Asia Cup next week.

Lucas Moura was the two-goal hero in Spurs' 3-0 away win in the reverse encounter back in August, although seems less generously priced at 7/4 (2.75) given he has scored a more modest three times in 15 matches.

At the other end of the pitch, Marcus Rashford will be looking to further cement his role as first-choice striker for a United team that has scored 16 goals in five matches under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

With four goals and five assists to his name in his last eight league games, the 21-year-old looks a great bet at 5/2 (3.50) to score for the third league game in a row, not to mention 17/2 (9.50) first goalscorer odds.

Rashford's form is likely to keep Romelu Lukaku out of the starting line-up, making the Belgium international a less appealing 11/8 (2.38) anytime bet despite the fact he has scored in three successive games - two of those as a substitute.

Although yet to enjoy a similar renaissance under Solskjaer, Alexis Sanchez could be set for a timely return to form at a stadium that has proved very good to him in the past.

The former Arsenal man has scored eight goals in nine appearances at Wembley for club and country, and is available at 11/5 (3.20) to make himself even less popular with the Tottenham fans by grabbing a first Red Devils goal since early October.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
