Man United v Zorya: Get on Rash to smash Ukrainians

Manchester United are set to bounce back from their much-publicised run of three defeats with a trio of comfortable wins as they take on Ukrainian outfit Zorya Luhansk in the Europa League.

The hosts have won 10 and drawn three of their last 14 games at Old Trafford, and boast a similarly impressive record in Europe, with just a single home defeat in as many games.

In that period, the Red Devils have beaten the likes of Wolfsburg and Bayer Leverkusen, as well as hammering Midtjylland 5-1 last season.

Ukrainian sides have also had a difficult time of it at Old Trafford, with none of their three visits to the Theatre of Dreams offering up a point or a goal.

Shakhtar Donetsk – the last to come here – lost 1-0 back in 2013-14, and possessed far more quality than this Zorya side.

It’s no surprise that United are short-price favourites to win this one at 2/11, with 11/2 for the draw and 16/1 for Yuriy Vernydub’s men to win.

That means the best value lies elsewhere. And with the Red Devils having won their last two games 3-1 and 4-1, backing Jose Mourinho’s men to win by three goals here looks like a great shout at 15/4.

There could also be a super selection in the player markets, with 7/2 for Marcus Rashford to score two or more goals. The youngster scored twice against Midtylland in United’s last home game in Europe, and has netted in each of United’s last three games.

Fancy United to win a thrilling contest? We’re offering a fantastic price boost on the action. Man United to win and Both Teams to Score WAS 7/4 NOW 11/4.
