Romelu Lukaku has scored just five times in 18 appearances this season, although did strike for the first time since mid-September in Saturday’s draw with Southampton.
Meanwhile, Marcus Rashford has drawn visible frustration from his boss after finding the net just once in 11 United appearances, but can also be backed at 8/5 (2.60) to ease the pressure with a big goal here.
Anthony Martial was in fine form before being dropped to the bench at St Mary’s, and you can get those same 8/5 (2.60) odds on him returning with a seventh goal in eight league appearances.
It’s a different story at the other end of the pitch, where Unai Emery’s attackers are playing with a confidence and verve that has produced more goals than any other team except Manchester City.
No player exemplifies this better than Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has been successful with each of his last 10 shots on target in the league to take his tally to 12 goals in 14 starts in all competitions.
Strike partner Alexandre Lacazette has also been in productive form with six goals in nine league matches, and is priced at 5/4 (2.25) to get on target for the second game in a row.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been assigned the main creative role in Mesut Ozil’s rather mysterious absence, and is on offer at 13/5 (3.60) to come back to haunt his former club.
