Manchester United betting (2020 updated)
Manchester United Odds
It seems every season brings a new period of uncertainty for the Red Devils. Though they are easily one of the most dominant English teams in the 21st century, their table placements from the past few seasons are all over the place.
Though some believe things seem to be calming down at Old Trafford under the stalwart leadership of Ole Gunnar Solskjær, the pundits and experts aren’t nearly as optimistic.
The third-place they managed to snag in 2019/20 was a clear and definite improvement over 2018/19’s 6th. Still, the world’s top online bookmakers don’t seem to be too hopeful about their chances of actually lifting the silver. Priced at 41.00, Man Utd ranks below teams who were far below them on last year’s table. Even a Top 4 Finish is priced at 4.00, despite last season’s rankings.
In short, United have earned themselves a reputation for unreliability – and unreliability is bad news for Premier League betting.
Manchester United Key Players
Solskjaer’s possession-based tactics are a bit of a hot topic right now. The Reds’ supporters applauded his intentions to bring back United’s signature aggression, though it was met with mixed results.
In practice, the backbone of Man Utd’s squad is at the back. The all-out attack with the goal of out-scoring your opponent no longer works in modern football, which makes players like Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka pivotal. Nevertheless, powerful forwards are still very much a thing in Old Trafford – the whole setup is there to allow players like Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandes to do their thing.
The only remaining piece of the puzzle was something to connect the two sides of the pitch. Solskjaer addressed this by adding Porto’s Alex Telles and midfield legend-in-the-making Donny van de Beek to his roster.
Manchester United Rivalry
On the back of a historic and economic rivalry between the cities of Manchester and Liverpool, there also arose one of the greatest rivalries in football. Once Manchester built the ‘Manchester Ship Canal’ to bypass Liverpool from dock export business, the gaps between the two cities and – consequently – clubs was created. Back in the old times of 1800s, football was a worker’s game. Therefore, the hatred between the two sets of supporters was only the natural consequence.
Modern times brought little change to the relationship between the two English heavyweights. However, it did see a shift of focus with the money-fuelled growth of United’s ‘noisy neighbours’ – Manchester City. The city rivalry is always special in its own merit. However, Manchester United also had plenty of heated contests with Leeds United.
Ultimately, in terms of numbers and records, Arsenal can be considered a rival worth mentioning. Ever since their own renaissance during the early 2000s and the Invincibles, Arsenal slowly became the Premier League club which tormented Manchester United the most.
Manchester United History
Founded in 1878, Manchester United stand proudly as England’s most successful football club with a record 20 titles. The three-time Champions League winners are one of the most recognisable brands around the globe which started its long road to worldwide glory under the name of LYR Football Club, playing initial games against railway departments and companies.
It was in 1902 the club adopted the name we know it under today, and moved to the iconic Old Trafford ground where their first-ever league titles was won six years later. Moreover, upon the relocation, Manchester United also charged their colours and introduced red shirts, white shorts and black socks. This ultimately became Manchester United’s standard home kit.
The club’s rich history deserves essays instead of paragraphs. As one of the most popular football clubs in the world and one of the highest average home attendances in European football, the Red Devils are officially supported from over 200 recognised branches of the Manchester United Supporters Club (MUSC).
