After playing out an intense draw in the derby against Manchester City, Manchester United will be looking to return to winning ways when they welcome Swansea City to Old Trafford on Sunday.
That stalemate brought an end to a three-match winning streak for the Red Devils, who are 4/11 (1.36) favourites with bet365 to bounce straight back by collecting maximum points in this one.
Meanwhile, Neil Clement’s side gave their own survival chances a boost by securing a first victory in seven against Stoke City last time out, and are on offer at 7/1 (8.00) to follow that up with a huge win in this one.
Nine of the last 14 league fixtures at this ground have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 15/4 (4.75) on this one also finishing up all square.
Having clearly set out to frustrate with a compact counter-attacking performance, Jose Mourinho will have been extremely satisfied to leave the Etihad Stadium with a point on Thursday.
While they may have been reduced to little more than a third of possession and were at times left riding their luck at the back, Mourinho’s men will congratulate themselves for keeping a clean sheet against one of the division’s most feared attacks – particularly after finishing the game with just 10 men.
With four matches having passed since they last conceded a goal in the league, the hosts can certainly be backed to keep at bay a Swans frontline that has gone three games without finding the net on the road.
Considering the Welsh outfit have also lost each of their last six away games and scored just three goals in the process, odds of 6/5 (2.20) certainly seem more than fair on United winning to nil for the third time in four league games on Sunday.
