Having proved deadly in front of goal in their opening 4-0 win over Chelsea, Manchester United will be hoping for more of the same when they take on Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux on Monday.

Responsible for the first and third goals against Frank Lampard’s men, Marcus Rashford is bet365’s 5/1 (6.00) favourite to extend that form with the opener here, or 7/4 (2.75) to strike anytime.

Despite playing out wide, the England man flourished for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with Anthony Martial leading the line through the middle.

The 23-year-old showed his poacher’s instincts with a well-taken goal inside the six-yard box, and looks generously priced at 9/4 (3.25) to strengthen his grip on the striker position by getting on target once again.

Paul Pogba provided two assists against the Blues, but can be backed at 13/5 (3.60) to turn from creator to finished with a first goal of the campaign.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s team should also be feeling fairly confident in front of goal after their own four-goal haul, having beaten Pyunik 4-0 to complete an 8-0 Europa League aggregate victory on Thursday.

Raul Jimenez was rested for the trip to Armenia, but is his side’s 11/2 (6.50) favourite to break the deadlock against the Red Devils, and priced at 15/8 (2.88) to strike anytime.

However, Diogo Jota looks an even better bet at 13/5 (3.60) considering he has hit the back of the net in each of the last two encounters between this pair, and seems to be enjoying a more advanced attacking role this season.

Indeed, Jota is playing up front ahead of this summer’s big signing Patrick Cutrone, who is on offer at 15/8 (2.88) to open his account for Wolves in high profile circumstances against United.
