Price Boost: Man Utd man selected to slay Cambridge dreams
Hot on the heels of the excitement and drama of transfer deadline day comes the beauty of the FA Cup, as Manchester United welcome Cambridge United to Old Trafford after playing out a goalless draw at Abbey Stadium.
That result not only netted the League Two outfit the chance to live out a dream by playing the replay at Man United’s 75,731 capacity stadium, but was also hugely impressive considering Louis Van Gaal fielded a very strong side.
Radamel Falcao led the line for the Red Devils, while Angel Di Maria, Michael Carrick and David De Gea all started in a formidable lineup for the Dutchman.
It’s highly unlikely that the U’s keep the Premier League giants at bay for another set of 90 minutes though and, having bagged his fourth goal of the season against Leicester last time out, Falcao will eye a further confidence-building outing on Tuesday night.
Any Ladbrokes customers that share the Colombian’s train of thought would be advised to back the bookies’ inflated price on the striker to score the first goal, which they have boosted from 11/4 to 7/2.
Although he’s managed four goals since swapping Monaco for Man Utd in the summer, Falcao is yet to bag himself a stalemate-breaker in the red shirt of his temporary employers.
However, a game against Football League opposition presents a live chance for the former Atletico Madrid man to change that trend, especially as Cambridge have shipped the first goal in over half of their League Two matches this term.
