Having been allowed just 10 Premier League starts in a three-year spell in West London disrupted by loan moves, the Belgium international is now one of the division’s most feared strikers and has hit seven goals in 10 fixtures for Jose Mourinho’s side this campaign.
On target in a 2-0 win the last time these sides met back in April, Marcus Rashford is also priced at those same 12/5 (3.40) odds to get on the scoresheet once again here.
At the other end of the pitch, Alvaro Morata will be looking to bring an end to a six-match barren spell of his own, having failed to score since netting in the 2-1 win over Atletico Madrid at the end of September.
Morata’s struggles have led many to request Michy Batshuayi be given more of a chance, since he has scored seven goals in just five starts this campaign, and he is on offer at 6/4 (2.50) to enhance that record further in this one.
However, with five goals to his name in the last six matches for club and country, Eden Hazard looks like the best value bet at 2/1 (3.00) to find the net; indeed, the Belgian playmaker has hit the net in four previous games against United, and certainly looks worth those 2/1 (3.00) odds considering his strong recent form.
