With a new boss at the helm, some encouraging signings and a frontman in Wayne Rooney who will surely have his confidence boosted after receiving the captain’s armband’ this could be a decent season for Manchester United.
While they toiled under David Moyes, the sounds coming out of the camp at the start of the Van Gaal era seem to be positive.
Who knows, maybe they could challenge for a 14th Premier League title? What better way to start than for a win against Swansea at the Theatre of Dreams, for which they are priced up at 4/11.
And to kick off the season in style Ladbrokes are offering an absolute monster of a price boost for football fans.
They will certainly have their work cut out to bring the trophy back to the red side of Manchester, but this unbelievable price simply cannot be missed.
The Dutch manager will surely want his team to deliver a statement of intent from the get-go in the Premier League curtain-raiser.
Newly appointed skipper Wayne Rooney scored five times in pre-season and can be backed at 7/2 to open the scoring after his fruitful off-season.
The Swans did manage to record a win in Manchester last season, albeit in the FA Cup, and can be backed at 9/1 to add a league win to their bow.
After an up and down pre-season it will be intriguing to see how a new strike partnership of Wilfred Bony and Bafetimbi Gomis can work together in the Premier League. They can be backed at 10/1 and 12/1 respectively to bag first and bring this fantastic price to an end.
But while Ladbrokes will be offering a whole host of specials throughout the Premier League season, Man United to lift the trophy could take some topping if Rooney and co go on to get their hands on the title next May.
