PSV Eindhoven v Manchester United Football Betting Tips
Wayne Rooney looks likely to miss out on this Champions League trip to Eredivisie fourth placed outfit PSV Eindhoven on Tuesday.
This will probably give an opportunity to Anthony Martial to show us some more of his chops after silkily ghosting through the Liverpool defence on Sunday and placing the ball as coolly as you like into the far corner for United's winning goal against Liverpool.
As far as substitute debuts go this was as good as it can get. Endearing yourself to the Old Trafford faithful with a goal against fierce rivals Liverpool is a good way to set yourself up to become a club legend.
Louis Van Gaals seemingly perverse transfer strategy had United lining up against Liverpool with Marouane Fellaini as their out and out striker but he failed to make an impact and the nineteen year old Martial took his opportunity with both feet. With Robin Van Persie, Radmael Falcao and Hernandez all moved on and Januzaj out on loan a lot rests on the £36 Million pound teenager.
The game against Liverpool was one of the poorest derby games I can remember and in a game of two distinctly average sides I think United were marginally better than Liverpool and they were gifted the first free kick when Ashley Young blatantly dived to fool the referee.
Enough sour grapes. I think United are going to struggle to make the group stages this season without striker backup. Rooney blows hot and cold and an injury to the youngster would mean Van Gaal resorting to plan A with Fellaini up top.
United are favourites to win this game at 6/5 but at 23/20 PSV look a good value bet having not lost yet this season.
